Read few of the 685 opinions of the AfterWorkout.com clients!

I'm very satisfied with the diet. It is well prepared, the meals are tasty and not hard to do. The exercises suit me well. After a month of training and diet I have 4 kg less. This site motivated me to work on myself!
The diet is nice. Quite interesing choice of dishes and it's great I can change the meals. Great contact with the trainer and dietitian. I have ot wait for the results for some time, but so far, I'm satisfied. I traina lot and thanks to this diet I have the energy for workouts, which is very important. The exercises are also great. I recommend it :)
I've been here for a short time, but I' losing weight :)
Differentiated meals, tasty, and I'm hardly able to eat 4 of them. I've never eaten as much as for the last year - but my weight achieved the assumptions and stopped, as if it was magic :-) Great way of eating. Training is very well matched as for no contact with the trainee. It's important to watch the films and not do the most common mistakes - then the exercises are really effective and when you finish your workout, you know you've been exercising. ;-) I recommend to all the connection of diet (right way of nutrition) with training plan and I wish you persistence!
The diet is various and tasty. The training are not problematic. However, after three months I can see no effects, or even 10% of the assumptions. I think I need more time.

Good advice

Are you older than 30? Take care of your lipids profile!

It occurs, that lipids problems affect younger people, what's more, you don't have to be overweight to have such problems. When you are older than 30, you have to check your lipids profile regularly. You can get the referral from your family doctor or you can also it privately. Lipids metabolism disorder is linked with circulatory system diseases.

You want to lose weight so you don't eat supper? It's not a good idea!

A common belief that in order to lose excess weight you shouldn't eat meals after six p.m., has no support in a form of research. Nobody has proved that this method is beneficial, and you can see in real life that it can be a burden. Instead of concentrating on the time of supper, pay attention to what you can find on your plate during the day and in the evening. The quality of the food you eat influences the effectiveness of slimming procedures much more that the times of meals.

Do you want to improve recovery? Sleep longer!

The best recovery remedy is not BCAA, glutamine, HMB or ZMA, but sleep. Long, not interrupted and in appropriate conditions. It is hard to recover after hard training if you sleep 4, 5 or 6 hours. The best sleep length is about 8 hour per day, however it is good to sleep even longer from time to time. Unfortunately, many active people neglect sleep, going to long-night parties, sitting late in front of a computer, sleeping with the lights or a TV on. This way the recovery time is a problem and the progress is slower.

Are you often hungry between your meals? Watch out for the carbs!

Do you know a proverb "the more you eat, the more you want to eat"? It describes perfectly the situation of an excess amount of refined carbs intake. Glucose-insulin interaction disorder and lowering the sensitivity of receptors that read the signals sent from insulin and leptin hormones leads to the deregulation of hunger control mechanisms. The reason may be excessive consumption of carbohydrates.

Do you experience uncontrolled gluttony attacks? Don't ignore it, go to the doctor's!

Perhaps you suffer from binge-eating disorder! Similarly to anorexia, bulimia or other eating disorders, this one needs treating. If the periods of uncontrolled eating are very sudden and are accompanied by losing consciousness, specialist's help is compulsory!

Facts and myths

If you have good slimming supplements, you don't need any diet.

Unfortunately, none of the supplements are able to replace a well-balanced diet. Sadly, many people believe that if they use different capsules, tablets or powders, they will be able to build impressive body mass, or reduce fat and build their body without eating proper food. The reality is different, even advanced supplements are nothing without a well-balanced diet.

Ginger is helpful for a headache.

Bio active compounds that can be found in ginger rhizome (gingerols) show antioxidant and anti inflammatory action and - as some research show - they help people with migraine headaches. Ginger may be a really good mean in supporting treatment and preventing from migraine. You can add ginger to some meals or buy extracts in a form of special supplements.
