Even though I am interested in my health, I read books on health, magazines, write about it and enjoy talking about it, doesn’t mean my food intake is 100% on the health track all the time. I do my best (well actually really I do what I want to do,) but that doesn’t mean I am text book perfect with all my macros balanced and eating shed-fulls of spinach, kale and everything else you are supposed to be eating to get adequate vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
For one thing our food doesn’t have the nutrients in it that it used to have, we don’t have minerals in our soil anyway due to the lack of mountains in Australia, when you store food you lose some, when you cook it you lose some, so even if you were super conscientious, my bet is that you would still be missing something.
So I’m in favour of a few supplements. Not overboard mind you but a few things that help you feel your physical best. Interestingly too I have heard the scoffing, “yeah supplements, the most expensive urine.” But you know me, other people’s opinions don’t really sway me, it’s my experience and the real life experience of others to which I pay the most attention.
