I have seen many people walking in gym and saying that doctor denied us to take this or that protein or supplement without having full information about them. I am sharing my recent experience. Few days back one female client from another gym asked me to give PROTEIN POWDER which should be lactose free & gluten free as recommended by doctor. So I had given her ‘DYMATIZE ISO100‘ which is lactose and gluten free but then after three days she says to me doctor denied me to take this product as it is not Gluten free. Without seeing the label and reading about the product doctor said this and she followed his advice blindly without herself looking that it is already gluten free and that’s what written as well on the product.
There’s a very thin line between blind faith and conscious faith. When confused or uncertain, it’s always good to take a second opinion from a knowledgeable person. My telling this information is not out of disrespect to the doctor. It just means that I want all of you to know what the information is so you can make an informed decision without trusting anyone at once. Seeing a doctor (or therapist) is not about the doctor making recommendations and me blindly following them. So next time you see your doctor or therapist and your doctor makes a recommendation, at least you also see the label of the supplement and Google about the product contents on companies official website.
A good nutritionist will appreciate your questions and take the time to explain things to you and to ask if you have concerns or questions about their recommendations. It is our job, so have no hesitation about asking few people without actually going for any decision if you can’t make decisions. Trust me; your doctor is not always correct. They in general are generally ignorant of bodybuilding nutrition.
