Whether you have just started strength training with weights or you have been doing it for years you need to know that the advertising that you see in any decent muscle and fitness magazine is not something that you cannot do without.

If you live in a city then you will know what itís like to get bombarded with adverts all the time showing you models with ripped abs saying that you need to get the latest pill to lose fat or some new bulking powder that will add 10 pounds of muscle plus countless supplements.

One could easily start to think that the only way that you are going to ever get any results is to be able to afford these but that is simply not true at all. The first thing you need to realize is that supplements are NOT necessities, they are only supplements to address issues like a nutritional deficiency or some other issue.

Training and getting results have nothing to do with expensive supplements or the latest protein powder mix, getting results comes from planning correctly. You no doubt are very aware of the increased requirement for protein when your objective is strength.

Some articles on the subject of protein that you need to get results go a bit too far saying that up to 2 grams of protein should be eaten per pound of bodyweight but this is simply not true. As a beginner you can quite easily get all the protein you will need by taking in 1.1 to 1.3 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight.

As mentioned above it all has to do with planning and if you can get into the habit of having at least 5 meals a day with the most important being your pre and post workout then you do not need ANY supplementation to get results. Having three protein shakes a day is expensive and we all know that, but there is another way.

We both know that taking a protein smoothie instead of training hard and heavy is just going to add fat and nothing else. The same as taking Ďfat-burnersí instead of doing cardio or training with a high intensity will not get results and will just increase your body-fat.

If you are starting to train for the first time then you should enjoy your first year as you will be picking up muscle at the fastest rate as your body starts to get stronger and you build muscle. You will pick up more muscle in your first year of training than you will ever gain muscle in later years.

The top bodybuilders in the world all agree that their muscles were made in the kitchen and not the weight room. This means that you need to plan your meals correctly so that you give yourself the best chance of getting results. If you have a limited budget it is advised to spend it all on good healthy nutrition and not supplements.

Working out what exactly will work best for you is something that can be a bit confusing as there are a myriad of micronutrients and macronutrients that your body needs on a daily basis to repair the damage you have done in the gym.

You do not need to purchase salmon fillets and lean steaks to get all the necessary amino acids that you need, it can easily be done by purchasing the cheapest protein which are eggs, tuna and chicken. For less than a dollar you can get a can of tuna with more good quality Omega 3 and protein in it than the most expensive protein smoothie you will buy at your local gym.

Buying chicken breasts for less than 2 dollars a pound is also a good return from an investment in your muscle building diet plus a dozen eggs for less than 2 dollars makes it something that just needs a little planning. ALWAYS be careful of foods that you buy watching the salt content and the caloric value so that you do not eat any useless and empty calories.
