Amanda's Supplement Philosophy
I use a host of products! I'm a supplement junkie, but in good taste. I feel the need to supplement because I'm not always sure I am quickly giving my body exactly what it needs from the food I eat. I feel supplements help me, along with my sweat and hard work. I am not sponsored by anyone, so I don't get endorsement points here, but I have tried many things and have fallen in love with some, and out of love with others as time has passed.
