One of the things I have been trying to education myself on are supplements. I think there is a time and place for nutritional supplements if taken correctly. When your diet lacks all of the vitamins and minerals that your body needs, I think supplements can be good. I also think too many or used incorrectly can be bad. So, I'm doing some research before taking any. (It is also a good idea to consult with your doctor before taking anything, especially if you have other medical conditions.) Just for the record...I am not a doctor!
My main focus will be on proper diet and exercise. I think that is key to optimal health, and I need to get back on track. I've had way too many Christmas cookies this season! But I have also read that calcium pyruvate may help. Pyruvate is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, so I am wondering if this would work for me. Anyone tried it before? I found some helpful information here regarding calcium pyruvate if you are interested in learning more and it is available for sale here. I've also got a few more items to check into, and I would love to hear about anything that has worked for any of you! I know there is not a miracle drug to lose weight. It has to be done with diet and exercise. However, anything that will give my old metabolism a boost will definitely be appreciated!
