Why You Should Consider Taking EAAs, BCAAs and Protein Powders.

2 Brands of the supplements I take. :- Optimum Nutrition (Protein & EAA) & XLNT (EAA).

Optimum Nutrition Supplements I take:- Protein & EAAs.

Hi Lovelies! 
I know, I've been exactly one week away from the blog. 
Maybe most of you don't know that I got into an accident, exactly one week ago but I'm getting better, still on the recovery mood.

So back to the topic, I'm here today to enlighten you with details regarding the major most talked about Fitness Supplements, the ones I do take Protein and EAAs and their brands accompanied with their Pros and Cons. 

As you all know, I'm a 100% Natural BodyBuilder Fitness Athlete, and very very conscious about the supplements I intake into my body system. 

Let's start off with; 

 EAAs (Essential Amino Acids) :- 

I use this because as it states Essential Amino Acids, there are some acidic cells that our body aren't fortunate to produce themselves and in order to attain this acids, we need them from food in order to replenish our body system. 
EAAs contains majorly 
* Vitamin C 
* Amino Acids
* Beta-Alanine 
* Hydrochloride
* Green Tea Extract
* Green Coffee Extract 
* Caffeine (optional) varies from brands, but ones from Optimum Nutrition has caffeine. 

The other brand XLNT's EAA, has no caffeine, and I take it at night when I'm about to head to bed. 

Why is EAA better than BCAA?

Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are called "branched chain" because unlike all the other amino acids, their physical structure is branched.

For example, here's a simple diagram of Leucine:

So if branch chain products are missing five of the eight essential amino acids the human body requires for strength and recovery, why would anyone take them?

Because the three BCAA’s are the most important for energy production and muscle metabolism, they were heavily promoted to the bodybuilding industry and they simply caught on.

                             And taking a BCAA product can be beneficial.
But using only the three BCAA’s it is a lot like fielding a baseball team with only a shortstop, pitcher, and catcher. They may very well be the three most important positions, but you certainly can’t expect to win any game without the rest of the team.

It's important to note that a high-quality, clinically-proven EAA formula such as Core 4 Nutrition's FundAminos contains 50% BCAA's and 50% of the other five, essential amino acids.

So it's a win-win!

Here is a quick refresher on why an EAA blend should be part of everyone’s nutritional support program.

Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s) are called "essential" because the body cannot make them; they must be obtained from food and/or supplement sources.  Many of us don't eat enough EAA-rich foods, and many more don't absorb or utilize them well.  As we age, the body's ability to extract the maximum nutrients from any protein source decline; and the excess calories in this protein can be stored as fat.

While bodybuilders popularized the use of "branched" EAA’s for muscular growth and maintenance, anyone can benefit from their use! EAA’s stimulate the production of cellular energy and promote cellular repair. They initiate the creation of the critical enzymes necessary for healthy (and complete) digestion. They are especially important for those who cope with any form of physical or mental stress including intensive training, injury, or surgery.

Because the effects of EAA's have been well-studied, they offer several, scientifically-proven benefits. We know that:

EAA’s prevent muscular breakdown during periods of intense physical and mental stress.

EAA’s improve enhance and protect the mitochondria, our cells' energy factories.

EAA’s can curb hunger and improve metabolism.

Protein Powders

So why is it that so many bodybuilders take protein shakes? 
Well, protein is used for the production of muscles. Proteins are also used to manufacture hormones, enzymes, cellular messengers, nucleic acids, and immune-system components. Without adequate protein, our bodies can't put together the structures that make up every cell, tissue, and organ, nor can it generate the biochemical substances needed for cardiovascular function, muscle contraction, growth, and healing. Without an adequate amount of protein our muscles wouldn't heal up as quickly and could therefore lead to overtraining your muscle which could lead to injury.

Also, after a workout is one of the best time to get protein into the body so that the protein can be delivered to your muscles, to begin healing the "micro tears" (very small tears in the muscle tissue, caused by intense contraction of the muscle during workout) in the muscle.
Because solid food takes more time to digest and to break down the protein and send it to the muscles, it can be best to take a protein shake immediately following a workout, since protein shakes only take about 30 minutes to reach the muscle after ingestion.  Definitely, we can see the advantage to taking a protein shake in this instance.

 Why I chose Optimum Nutritions Whey Protein?

I chose it because it's beyond the basics, it's truly 100% of the Protein Derived from Whey,  it's low in Fat, Very low in Sugar, High in Calcium, Low Kcal, Moderate rate in carbs, compared to other brands.

So Lovelies, I hope you all are now more enlightened on these supplements and can now be able to differentiate which suites you personally. 

Here's a direct link of where you can purchase this products I use, and they ship worldwide, no worries! ..You get a 10% discount from the EAAs. 


Have a lovely day Darlings!

Hi Lovelies!
Sorry for the late update!... I've been quite busy today(now yesterday in Sweden) but not busy to forget you all, I had you in my thoughts. 
My day hasn't been the best of days but I'm grateful to God who allowed me see this very day and conquered it in the best way I could today.

I woke up late due to chatting late night helping out an Instagram follower, from Australia, on her personal workout and diet plan. 
But I made sure I went to the gym, there isn't an excuse that would make me miss hitting the gym. 
I also worked today at my second job, you know, I'm a workaholic, afterwards I went to the gym again for my second session workout, before I went for some grocery shopping and then headed home. 
Now, I'm chilling in bed, listening to Future's latest album track, and planning my tomorrow.
Oh that reminds me Lovelies! ..A lot of you have requested me blogging about healthy meals and the basic good info to know about when wanting to live up to the healthy lifestyle.
I'll surely do that, because the request has increased in surplus, so I'll do my best to inform you well. 

For now,  the pictures above were taken before workout and one after my last workout session at the gym, I did my Booty workout in the morning & Legs later in the evening, and the last picture was my lunch at work, which consisted of highly enriched protein & vitamins  veggie mixed salad. This is basically what I eat every lunch👅

Now, I'm try finish up with planning stuff and head to bed, in order to get re-energised and feel refreshed for the gym again.

Weekends Got Me Like This!


Happy Sunday Lovelies! 

Hope you all had a splendid weekend as it's coming to an end. 
For me, my weekend as only revolved around ''Work-work-work'' like my Bad gal Riri! 

After working for approx. 10 hours I headed to the gym for a 2 hours abs workout!

It was fun to be back at the gym after a 5 days relaxation while in the era of my graduation. 
But now, I can finally breathe! 

I made a short Home workout YouTube for you all, which I filmed during the crisis of my finals whereby I couldn't head to the gym, but rather workout at home during my short breaks from studying. 
These workouts did work for me, I was expecting to loose muscles or adding weight or water weight but I didn't because I kept it clean with my healthy meals and working out at home helped! 
I even shared it on my Instagram page, which people did very much like! 

So you all can finally give a try at home when you don't feel like heading to the gym!
Make sure, you're following me on my Official Fitness Instagram Page :-

Preparation for This Special Day Pt. 1

Happy Sunday Lovelies!

I can't believe this special event has got passed 1 week, I still have flashbacks, still can't over it!

Oh how I wish I could draw back the Time-line with a Time Machine😓

Well anyways, it was an amazing day to last an eternity in memory. 

The beginning of that day started with stress, because I didn't wake up at the planned time (I forgot to set my alarm on).  If you know me, I'm a very organised person, I plan my 24 hours
 accordingly from Gym, School, Work, Social-Media business plans /meetings and Free time to hang out with friends.

So, when I woke up, I arranged my room, organised my bags; one to the gym and the second to lounge into the hotel where the event was taking place, but I came back home after working out to switch bags and head to the hotel.

I was about 10minutes late to my check-in time into the hotel due to traffic and then I got this rare panic that I wasn't going to be done with my Hair and Makeup.
But I nailed it, my hair took me approx. 1 hour to style, and then my Makeup took me exactly 30 minutes!✅

I did a natural makeup look with smokey eyes.
The brands of MakeuP I used were :- 

Christian Dior.





Here's a glimpse of how my hotel room looked liked that costed me $180 for one night, I almost cried haha!
Hotel rooms don't come cheap like in the U.K  or States, but it definitely saved me after a long night of partying!

More photos will be up on the blog soon.

Have a lovely Sunday guys!
