The Fitness Enthusiast: Fitness enthusiasts, on the other hand, exercise then deprive their nutritional replenishment as they are "appearance oriented". Anorexic tendencies from slight to extreme are propagated by the obsession of obtaining and maintaining low levels of body fat. Fitness enthusiasts often never replete themselves of the nutrition they need for exercise, and starve their bodies of essential calories. Although nutrition intrigues them, often times fitness enthusiasts haven’t a clue as to what to take and when to take it. It’s easy to pick up a magazine one month, read an article about some magic pill, run out an buy it, consume it like a madman for a few weeks, then switch to another substance before the original bottle is empty just because another article shifted your thinking. Nutrition only works its magic when consistently followed, and the good news is the results get better with time. The adaptogens and ergogenics substances I mentioned above might take 3-6 months for them to display their health-promoting physique-altering benefits.
