The way to a healthy body and mind is through exercise as we are constantly told. In fact it is almost rammed down our throats from all angles, the press and media are a constant source of “encouragement” and now more than ever, the body beautiful rules.

Whether this is a healthy stereotype is another ‘can of worms’, but it is safe to say that the pursuit of the perfect body is often on ones’ mind. To come at this from a slightly different angle would be more productive. Think about your daily lives and how exercise fits into them, we are all time poor these days and as a result our own well-being tends to suffer the most.

Count the number of times in a week when it is more tempting to go for a drink after work rather than to go for a swim. Or when you get home early from work and all the good intentions you had before lunch have gone out the window as you’re tired a sluggish and have the place to yourself. We are all guilty of this, but how doe we change our behaviour to one that is going to benefit us both mentally and physically?

It’s the million dollar question, there are many different diets and exercise regimes from which to choose from. So many that perhaps it is a little too convoluted and the simple approach we yearn for is too hard to find. There is of course a solution and it comes from within, if you really want to change your lifestyle and posses the necessary motivation then it can happen.

The best way to go about it is to start very slowly, don’t throw yourself into something too hard and fast. The reason being is that when you return to it, you will have set yourself a very high target. Small attainable goals are the way to go; you must learn to see the progression through each of these as a small success, leading to a greater level of satisfaction in the long run.

The “long run” is particularly important here, essentially if you want to change things, you need to think into the future. This change in lifestyle should not only include regular exercise but also a change in your diet, to possibly include dietary supplements (goal dependent). One such example is the protein bar; the protein bar is designed to be eaten shortly after a training session and is particularly popular with those who enjoy strength and endurance training.

The protein bar is the ideal companion if you are training, as it will provide you with the necessary boost of protein and carbohydrates that your body will require shortly after you have completed a training session.

In the past the market for food and dietary supplements was fairly small, however these days the sheer number of brands is staggering. The range of protein bars available is also impressive, with a variety of flavours and sizes to choose from, the protein bar has managed to achieve a strong presence within the sporting market.
