Here’s the deal…
99.3 times out of 100, anytime the word “fast” is incorporated as an adjective when describing ones results with a workout routine, diet, or supplement protocol, you can safely assume one or more of the following things:
- It’s a fad diet in question, and any and all results are based off eating patterns consistent with short-term weight loss with NO regard for long term maintenance. Meaning no matter what, the diet will not be sustainable, and often, the dieter will end up fatter than when they started. Sad truth.
- “Results” are solely based off temporary water loss.
- It’s all b*llshit psychological marketing tactics.
Nothing will change the fact that a shredded physique and aesthetic build stems from the foods one puts into their bodies on a consistent basis, paired with an exercise regiment that is conducive with ones goals.
When both factors are present, there are a few supplements that can dramatically expedite results, progress, and overall efficiency on your fat burning/muscle building journey.
Today I will share with you 3 supplements that I can’t live without, that will help you lose fat fast, and get you summer ready!
- CLA- Conjugated linoleic acid is an omega-6 polyunsaturated essential fatty acid that has become increasingly possible in the fitness world. The benefits of this supplement include an increased metabolic rate, enhanced muscle growth, lowered cholesterol and insulin resistance, and an enhanced immune system. CLA supplementation has also been shown to improve the lean muscle mass to body fat ratio, decreasing fat deposition, most notably on and around the abdomen.
- Digestive Enzymes- I’ve wrote about this in blogs, fitness tips, and on social media approximately 342,858 times , but until I’m supremely confident all of my clients, blog subscribers, and followers are using one, I will continue to do so. Buy some. Take 1 with most meals. Reap the benefits of a better body and healthier you. You are doing yourself a disservice by not supplementing with a digestive enzyme, as your body will not come close to having the ability to break down, absorb, and put to good use what you put into it as efficiently as if you were. Adversely, most bloating stems from your bodies inability to digest properly, which can and will hinder your ability to lose weight.
- Fish Oils- Stick with a pure Omega 3. Ask for it by name. Fish oils have an abundance of health and wellness purposes and I encourage you to do some additional research, but for the purposes of today’s blog we will outline the positive effect it has on fat loss and lean muscle enhancement in the human body. Increased insulin sensitivity which accelerates the fat loss process, decreased inflammation, and reduced levels of the stress inducing hormone cortisol, are arguably the top 3 benefits of fish oil as it pertains to improving body composition.. One study done suggested people who took 4 grams daily of fish oil had significantly lower cortisol levels at the end of the study then those who did not. Anytime cortisol levels are elevated it causes an inflammatory effect on the body, as well as a protein degrading effect that causes lean tissue and muscle loss. Certainly not ideal under any circumstances as less muscle = a lower metabolic rate (calories one burns over the course of a 24 hour period)
I do have an additional supplement I take that’s changed my life in a lot of ways. It’s a fat burner, but not your traditional heart attack in pill form you buy at your local supplement shop, which I despise and personally think should be taken off the shelves because they are either too dangerous, or do not do what they claim, or a nasty combination of the 2, The one I’m using Is actually a pharmaceutically compounded formula that’s helped me take my bodies shreds to another level. My fear with this one is if I reveal it, some of you may interpret it as an, excuse my language, Eat like a fat loser and get out of jail free card, for lack of a better term. We may have to revisit this one at a later time.
If you have not yet made the 3 supps I’ve mentioned today part of your daily routine, please do so effective immediately. They are inexpensive, easy to procure, and produce undeniable results. Once I feel comfortable the majority of you have taken my advice here, I may talk about said fat burner in an upcoming article.
As always, questions, concerns, or feedback, feel free to comment away!!! I love hearing from you so please don’t hesitate to ask should there be something you feel I may be able to help you with.
