Claire Bodiya's Nutrition And Supplementation Program
My take on nutrition is to work hard, eat right and feel great. It takes a lot of discipline to eat clean, and I have made it a part of my lifestyle to prepare my meals properly every week. I know that if I plan ahead of time and prepare my meals in advance then I won't fall off the bandwagon trying to fuel myself with empty calories.
I really focus on feeding my body proper nutrition at every meal, especially high protein. My diet varies according to my workout intensity and how my body is changing. When I'm preparing for a competition I am extremely disciplined and take absolutely no cheat meals. However, as a newly-married woman I want to enjoy some days off with my husband who is also very fit. As long as I hit it hard all week with my diet and workout, I can modify my diet to allow for some more hearty meals without bingeing.
I have to be aware of what I am putting in my mouth at all times. The most difficult part for me is the fact that I have complications when it comes to dropping weight. Dieting can get very frustrating. However, even if the pounds don't drop off right away, the feeling of being a clean eater makes any health issues seem much less severe, and that alone could be one reason to eat clean everyday.

Supplementation, for me, is important, even if I don't always see the effects right away. The only two supplements I get an energy boost from are OxyELITE Pro, a fat burner, and Optimum AmiN.O. Energy. The BCAAs in Optimum AmiN.O. Energy are helpful for endurance and recovery.
Plus, I like the way the thermogenic blend gives me an intense surge to blast through my toughest training sessions. I also use various other supplements, but I understand that the products are true to their definition: they supplement my training and nutrition.
Therefore the most important thing is to be on point with a healthy, clean nutrition program and figure out what type of cardio and training style works for you. Only when these pieces of the puzzle are complete will supplements give you your greatest advantage.
