A:   Thank you for your question. You certainly do not need not take protein supplements as part of a healthy diet program. In fact there are great whole food protein options which can assist you in building healthy muscle during your exercise regimen. Such sources of protein include eggs and lean meat (chicken breast, or fish). As far as a personalized diet plan is concerned, we will require more information pertaining to your current health conditions, as well as your personal fitness goals. First we recommend that you consult your personal physician prior consulting a dietician to design a healthy diet plan to support your fitness routine. Please be guided accordingly.

Thank you for consulting
