    Cool The truth behind sports supps, energy drinks and running shoes...
    Hey

    For the UK people did anyone watch Panorama on BBC 1 last week? Interesting. In a nut shell there is no scientific studies to prove that whey protein has ANY benefit at all, it's a money making scheme... I have heard before whole milk is the same thing, drink that after training, and that was said on this programme although the example was maxi muscle which is rubbish but they were referring to all products - it's a rip off!

    isotonic drinks - Lucozade, powerade etc - Bullshit (I knew this anyway)... It is pure sugar and has NO benefit. Make your own isotonic drink, pure fruit jouice, water and a pinch of salt. No idea why people waste money buying these.

    Running shoes - Apparently there is no proof that special fit running shoes designed for induviduals have no difference in preventing injury as if you were just to wear a comfortable pair of trainers.. Experiments were carried out and this seems to be true. I disagree... I had comfy trainers once, but when I used to run i always got akiliestendonitis and shin splints, i then purchased a proper pair of running shoes and guess what? the problerm went away!

    Another point made was water consumption. It is always said 2 litres should be drank per day for optimum hydration - This documentry suggests 'only drink when you are thirsty'. Marathon runners have dropped dead to being over hydrated, but again each induvidual is different.

    The conclusion to this programme was 'Wear trainers that are comfy for you for running, eat a balanced diet, drink when you are thirsty and exercise'. *All this info on this programme has been studied and proven.. Are we being ripped off??? Interesting documentry.. If you have BBC iplayer watch it, I'm sure you can find this on youtube if you are outside the UK, the programme is panorama....

    I haven't researched these topics extensively, but I think everything from documentaries like these should be taken with a grain of salt. They thrive off of controversial issues and cover too many topics in too short a time period to go into significant detail about each of them.

    I'm not surprised that they'd say sugary drinks are bad, or that special running shoes don't do much. I think that real food is better than protein powder, but I have a hard time believing that it has no benefit at all. As for the water part, I think way more people suffer from dehydration than over-hydration.

    just my $.02

    Let's put it this way, any top athlete puts more emphasis on a proper diet over supplements. Problem is the average person trying to look like these athletes put more emphasis on the supplements than proper diet. Most supplement companies are full of crap just jumping on the bandwagon. Eg, fat burners say they only work if you follow a fat loss diet.. Powerade say drink more of their product so you don't dehydrate or overhydrate and most protein bars and powders pretend that before their invention people had no muscle.. Of course it's mostly bs, these things were born out of convenience.
    The outcome speaks for itself. Unless you're an elite runner just wear trainers that feel good on you.

    I do think some supplements have their place, but honestly most are useless... I do drink my whey protein (once a day) but in all honestly NOTHING can replace real food..and those "fat burners" that claim to "melt the pounds away" are just misleading and false...
    Nothing beats a good diet and is sad to see how people fall for this crap.

    As far as running shoes, there are some great running shoes out there, but I say go with whatever feels comfortable for u...

    I don't agree with drinking water only "when your thirsty" I drink at least a gallon a day, there are many benefits to drinking water.

    I find converse comfortable but there is no way I'd do an 8 mile run in them which I've just done! Nike free run all the way :-)

    Obviously I meant comfortable trainers not shoes that have no impact support whatsoever

    Yes, that was true and in fact many running shoe were confidently has light weight. Also, supplements were helpful in boosting our energy.

    yep gatorade & powerade are a waste of $$ and do contribute to the obesity problem in the states because people (who apparently dont know how to read nutrition labels) believe they are being healthy by switching their 24 oz coke for a sport drink. yea there are no conclusive studies for the effectiveness of supplements, but i have talked to the owner of a organic supplement company about whats actually in products. i thought they contained alot of fillers to rip off consumers & the way they would get away with it was because they were not FDA approved, but he informed me that they are monitored by consumer protetion agency regularly, and said that it was not worth the few cents to add fillers & save on whatever the product was lets say it be creatine, if they get caught "cutting" their supps, the penalty would end up being a hell of alot more expensive than just selling a pure , uncut product.
