What do you think about "Athletic Greens"?

Hey, I like and live the Paleo Nutrition mostly. I am a very active person and I am doing CrossFit and or SEALFIT (hard PT) everyday.

As I read Tim Ferris "The 4 hour Body" I heard the first time of "Athletic Greens". Ferris recommends it.

https://www.athleticgreens.com/v2/index.php?

What do you think about the product - also from a Paleo Dieters Point of view?

Thanks and greetings from Germany.

yours

steve

True! Asparagus are my athletic greens. They help me cut water weight.

Eat food.

Spinach, kale, broccoli. There are your athletic greens.

They pack of lot of ingredients and antioxidants to make it look impressive, but none of them are in any clinically significant amount. A lot of these Greens products contain goitrogens too.

If I were an athlete, I would avoid most vegetables/fiber. I see no reason to artificially limit your rate of energy consumption.

This product seems to be a glorified multivitamin.

I recently tried Tectanic from Protein Factory. It consists of just spinach, kale and broccoli. Gives me awesome workout energy when doing weights.

As with all supplements, it's just repackaged to make things more convenient.

Came across an interesting review on the topic:

http://www.fourhourbodysupplies.com/athletic-greens-review-and-comparison/

And I noticed you're from Germany. Athletic Greens is not actively delivering to locations outside of the US I believe. The review did talk about the alternatives though.

Rumour has it that the guy behind Athletic Greens, Chris Ashenden, is the same guy who was convicted in New Zealand for misleading investors in a property scheme: http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/money/4853552/Why-rent-promoter-Ashenden-convicted Wouldn't trust a guy like that....

Been on Athletic Greens for a year.I play racquetball 3 days a week, and in the weight room 3 days. Its a nice piece of your overal health and fitness. Try it for 30 days, I think you will feel the difference.

Call me skeptical, but I wonder how much he's being paid to endorse it.
