My girlfriend has been working out with me off and on for about 4 months. She likes the chocolate Metabolic Drive low carb mix, but that's about the only thing she was taking "consistently" (and I use that loosely, as it took her about 3 months to get through one canister).
She has recently decided that her schedule is free enough to "really hit the gym hard" and wants to get in on my next supplements order. The problem is that I'm really not sure that she needs anything, or that the stuff I get would even help her. She has taken one of my HOT-ROX (one) and said that she felt "high" and "full of energy all day long", so she says she really wants a bottle of that. shrugs I was going to pick up a canister of SuperFood for her too, since I don't think she currently takes a multi.
She's about 5' 3", 130ish lbs, but I'd say mostly skinny-fat, as she typically only does cardio when she worked out in the past. She wants to tone up, "get stronger", and lose about 10 lbs of fat. I've tried to explain to her that she doesn't really "need" supplements where she's at for her goals.
She just needs to get in the gym and work, and pay closer attention to her dietary habits. She believes that there is a psychological motivation in taking supplements, though, and she's willing to spend the money. shrugs
Should I just get her regular old high quality fish oil instead of Flameout? I thought I remember reading that Flameout was really geared more towards men is why I'm asking that. Anything else anyone would suggest that might be worth adding to the list, other than good food?
Thanks, I really appreciate it. I just have no clue what supplements women like her would even take.
