Vitamins - You May Not Need Them While Training Hard

Charmichael Training Systems publish a nutrition newsletter monthly that has some interesting information in it.

This month's newsletter writes that when you are training hard a multivitamin might not be needed - the opposite of what many would assume:

If you're like most people, you probably assume that you need a supplement-store's worth of extra vitamins and minerals when you're burning through so many calories in a day. But here's what's missing from this assumption: you're also eating a heck of a lot more food when you train hard, and if you're downing quality fuel from a variety of healthy sources such as fruits, vegetables, dairy, whole grains, lean meats, and fish, then you're already taking in high doses of vital vitamins and minerals.

Check out the newsletter for more information on this and other topics.
