Do Physiques Go Better with Organic or Natural?




The term “organic” is used to describe production methods that use non-synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, which can be a problem.  That's because some of the “natural” pesticides are more toxic than synthetics. Come to think of it, products that claim to be “natural” can really be quite dangerous, because compounds like sugar are “natural”, but that doesn’t mean they are even remotely good for anyone, much less a Physique Athlete.  Organic is a good concept, but keep in mind at the end of the day, foods are chemicals themselves, making what happens “after you consume them”, like stimulating insulin release or causing excess inflammation, more important than whether they were organically produced or natural, before you ate them.


If you have the money, grass fed meats have been shown to have better ratio’s of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and may be of value. Personally, I like the idea of consuming less ingredients or chemicals if you will, to get my intake of protein, carbs and essential fats. To do this, simply eat more foods that are not processed or “packaged” like lean meats, eggs, whole fruits, vegetables and nuts. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store, and avoid the packaged food aisles. In my view, the use of protein supplements that use milk proteins, seems to be a great way to limit the amount of toxins that may be present in factory farmed high protein foods like chicken.
