Little Known Secrets To Results In The Gym with Carl Germano
Athletic supplements abound these days. Shops dedicated to helping athletes achieve their gains and goals are everywhere, but with a large supply comes products that are lackluster and sometimes even dangerous. They promise to help you gain muscle, power through your workout, lose weight, and help you get that rockin’ bod you’ve always wanted. The truth, however, is that these products often contain unhealthy amounts of caffeine, artificial sweeteners, and other unnatural chemical substances that often get banned once out on the market. Is it possible to achieve the results without the use of these products? Absolutely.
On this week’s episode we speak with Carl Germano, RD, CNS, CDN, a registered, certified/licensed clinical nutritionist presently appointed to the NY State Board of Dietetics and Nutrition and a frequent radio guest and lecturer. He holds a masters degree in clinical nutrition from New York University and has over 30 years experience using innovative, complementary nutritional therapies in private practice and in product development. For the past 25 years, he has dedicated his efforts to research and product development for the nutritional industries (dietary supplements, functional beverages, medical foods), where he has been instrumental in bringing cutting-edge nutritional substances and formulations to market. We talk with Carl about what to look for when choosing athletic supplements, how to dose, and buy to achieve results. If you’re an athlete, gym rat, or weekend warrior, this is one you don’t want to miss.

“The two storage areas for sugar in the body are your liver, in the form of glycogen and also in your muscle. After about an hour of strenuous activity, you’ve pretty much exhausted all sources of sugar energy to muscle and therefore need to replenish it. So with endurance sports … you need to replenish that if you want to compete.”
