I hear people occasionally say they're not “moody dieters” but I call bullshit on that one!! You can't place yourself in such a state of restriction and not become irritable at times.
Everyone who goes through a serious dieting phase has gotten a little depressed and irritable at times…ALWAYS.
Have you ever tried dieting really hard and then had a cheat meal? It's glorious, isn't it? After you consume that cheat meal you're always in a better mood!
So what do you have to do to stay in a good mood, just cheat all the time? No! You can't always cheat on your diet, you'll lose your gains.
Most of us are not in the position where we can just put life on hold to achieve bodybuilding and/or fat-loss goals. We have responsibilities and priorities and families that come before our bodies.
What do you do to stay in a good mood during those times when you can't cave in and eat junk, but you still need to operate in normal, everyday situations?
Those times when your kids are nagging you, when you need to stay late after work, when there seems to be too many tasks to fit into a single day and you want to just crawl out of your own skin…
When most people reach this level of stress what do they do? They cheat or they quit!
But now there's a better way to get through a nasty diet phase…
Let me introduce you to a new product from Red Supplements that can take the edge off of some of that stress.
This supplement can keep you going and give you a little relief from those times during a diet when life tries to push you down and keep you there.
When it comes to mood enhancement, improved sleep, enhanced social function and increased sense of well-being, Red Supplements pulled no punches with Red Monkey.
Red Monkey is a proprietary blend of:
- N-Acetyl L-Cysteine
- Bacopa Monnieri,
- Rhodiola Rosea root
All mixed into a 1375 mg blend of powerful mood enhancing goodness!!
How The Red Monkey Mood Enhancing Formula is So Effective
Well lets talk about this unique combination of ingredients in Red Monkey for a few minutes. The first ingredient N-Acetyl L-Cysteine primarily hits the body in the removal of free radicals and damaging heavy metals.
Think of this supplement as a heat seeking missile that works it's way through your body and finds the toxins and helps neutralize them, especially in vital organs such as the liver and kidneys. A clean body is a happy body!!
Phenibut has been used for quite some time now, actually since the 1960's to help reduce high levels of stress and anxiety.
The great thing about phenibut is that results are experienced instantly after the first dose is taken. You will most likely feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders and anxiety you may have been experiencing has disappeared.
Phenibut is also considered a nootropic or “smart drug” and many users may feel a sense of enhanced mental clarity or focus when trying to complete a task without getting sidetracked.
At certain dosages phenibut can also cause a sense of euphoria that can make one much more pleasant to be around. Phenibut just seems to help make life more enjoyable.
It can also help with a more restful nights sleep. If you look at a lot of sleep supplements on the market, phenibut is usually one of the main ingredients. So for myself it's great to use especially when I'm dieting and sleep gets harder since I'm hungry.
I notice that my social interaction is much better when I use phenibut. It just feels like conversation seems to flow better, I'm more receptive to the other persons words and I deal better with conversations and/or certain situations that would normally make me feel closed up to the world.
I suppose that's the easiest way to describe it, you just feel free and there isn't any anxiety when you're on the stuff.
The downside to phenibut is you can become used to taking it and it's therefore recommended not to use it everyday, this way you don't get immune to it's effects.
You may also need to play with dosing a little bit to see what dosage works the best for you. It may take less or more to give you the desired effects that phenibut can provide.
Bacopa Mannieri is an herb that is used for improved cognitive function, improved memory, and also another antioxidant.
To put this in easy to understand terms, bacopa monnieri primarily works by making the nervous system sync better to the brain for improved neuron communication.
The herb increases the size of the tiny nerve endings so our reception to processing in our brains is faster, that's probably the easiest way to explain it actually.
When Bacopa is combined with phenibut the synergistic combination is incredible!!
Next thing I'm going to talk about is 5-HTP. 5-HTP has a primary function of releasing more serotonin in our brains.
More serotonin= better mood!!
5-HTP is also shown to improve sleep patterns, treat mild forms of depression as well as aid in fat loss.
As you can see by now, the combination of ingredients in Red Monkey are as good as it gets for anxiety, overall sense of well-being and a more restful night's sleep (something that gets harder to come by as we diet down further and further!!)
If the addition of 5-HTP alongside Phenibut and Bacopa Monnieri wasn't enough, the next ingredient added to this awesome synergistic stack is L-Theanine.
The easiest way to describe what L-Theanine does for you is to use myself as an example. You see, a lot of restless nights would come from my brain not being able to shut down. My body was fatigued but my mind wouldn't stop racing!!
What L-Theanine does is it helps relax your brain and bring it down to a speed it can start working better.
Have you ever tried to accomplish a task but felt like you just couldn't slow your mind down enough to actually concentrate? I can attest to that feeling and it sucks!!
I would feel like “I just need something to calm my mind down.” L-Theanine works to calm you down and help you relax.
It's also shown to help with creativity and focus. L-Theanine is shown to increase alpha wave function in the brain which is how the compound works so well. The best part about L-Theanine is it relaxes your brain but doesn't cause drowsiness.
Red Monkey is a supplement that can be taken during the daytime for mood elevation and anxiety reduction but can still help you relax enough to sleep better than ever!!
The final ingredient in Red Monkey mood enhancer is Rhodiola Rosea. Rhodiola Rosea is classified as an adaptogen and makes you less susceptible to stress.
This ingredient is an all natural herb that is shown to stimulate dopamine (feel good chemical in our brain) norepinephrine, and serotonin levels.
Supplementing with Rhodiola Rosea can enhance neurological function and vastly improve your mood.
Like I said to you before, dieting hard can cause mild depression at times. I have found that trying to get lean really all boiled down to one major key factor; how much discomfort you can tolerate!!!
Some people will get to a point where they can't take it anymore, while others will find the ability to push through new hurdles and halting points and continue losing more bodyfat!!
Every single time I went to extremes to lose bodyfat I would have good days and bad days. I'd have times where mild depression would set in as I got further along with my diet.
Red Monkey can help you continue to push onward!! Not only can it relax you, but as stated above it can help improve sleep and social interaction. It can keep you from going nutty.
Whatever the case may be, just remember not to push away family and friends just to get in shape!!
If taking something to stick to your goals and make life seem more manageable is the ticket then try it!! That's what I would do.
Hell, it's cheaper than drinking and it's healthy.
Uplift your mood hard!!- JD
