Finally, there are so many varieties of supplemental protein out there to choose from. From vegan options to keto-friendly, you can find a protein that fits many of your dietary needs. However, collagen is a supplement that I recommend too, because it is the building block for the hair the skin, but as we get older, its production is decreased. So it's a good idea to supplement with collagen peptides as well for healthy skin, hair, nails, and connective tissue. Remember, these are supplements, so make sure you are having them with a sensible diet and consult you physician before introducing any new fitness or diet routine.
Lastly, it is important to remember that just like life, fitness is also a journey. It has its hills and valleys; it has it twists and turns. Give yourself grace and embrace the journey, because it truly is the journey that is a gift that is ever unfolding.
