What supplements should you be taking for fat loss?
Supps can be EXTREMELY confusing and overwhelming.
It’s hard to tell genuine products from useless ones. If your goal is fat loss – it’s very easy to fall into the trap of buying supplements that just don’t work.
I have been the victim of dodgy salesmen and scammy supps – when I wanted SO badly to lose weight. I was stuck, due to poor advice and misinformation. I want to help you reach your goals faster with some legitimate advice and proven supps. I can help you find the fastest easiest way to get where you want to be!
It’s important to remember that you training and nutrition is key. If you are eating too much or very inactive – you are going to have a very hard time transforming your body. You can supplement to give you the boost you need to get started or get additional benefits that are harder to get through diet. While supplementation can’t replace diet & exercise, it can make it a whole lot easier to get the ball rolling.
When looking for fat loss specific supplements – I’m always looking for something that will reduce hunger, increase energy, boost mood + motivation, and make dieting easier and more convenient.
I don’t want you to waste any time or money of ineffective overpriced products. Here are my no BS top 5 fat loss supplements for 2018.
1 READY TO DRINK PROTEIN + CAFFEINE
One of my number 1 supps when I’m dieting down for a shoot or comp is Crankt ready to drink shakes. The Crankt Max shake is ideal for my first protein serving of the day. I try to hit 30g of protein per meal and this tasty drink makes it easy to do so. The protein and caffeine hit also has the added benefit of blunting hunger and increasing energy and mood. For those who don’t have time to prep all their meals and want a convenient, ready to drink option – you cannot beat this. I have one pretty much daily while dieting. The choc honeycomb is delicious and perfect for summer when you want it as an alternative to a cooked protein source.
2 CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
Creatine gets a bad wrap most of the time. The truth is it is one of the best proven safe and effective supps money can buy. Creatine monohydrate has been proven to promote increases in strength and power, with prolonged supplementation resulting in increased muscle growth. If you’re a female, you’ll get the tighter toned muscle look when you lean down, rather than jiggly skinny fat. Creatine has also been shown to have general health benefits including neuroprotective qualities. Training or not, this is something everyone should be taking. Take 5g daily, there is no need to cycle on and off creatine.
3 SUPER GREENS POWDER
Many of us struggle to get all the micronutrients we need daily through diet alone. Supplementing with a daily greens powder can help with any deficiencies. Why is this important for fat loss? If you feel good you will have better mood and energy. This converts to better adherence to your eating and training plan. If you are fueling your body correctly, everything is going to feel easier. The whole process will be more enjoyable – making long term success more likely.
Taking a casein supplement before bed on a diet has a huge effect on promoting fullness. Most women chronically underdo protein, which has many negative effects on body composition. Because we don’t store protein like other macronutrients, it’s important to get enough every single day. This is ESPECIALLY important if you are working out and trying to improve your body shape. Having this slow release protein pre bed will promote lean muscle – which is always a priority while dieting. This is an easy way to reach your overall protein needs for the day. Many clients who don’t like eating a lot of meat, love having their pre bed protein treat as dessert. If you want to try some cool casein recipes – click here.
5 DAILY D
Improving your body is rarely just about looking better. We want to look AND feel amazing. The great thing about working out and eating better is its ability to make us feel happier, healthier, more confident and full of life. We get more out of each day. Research shows that many people may be at risk of inadequate vitamin D levels due to poor dietary intake and insufficient sun exposure. Supplemental vitamin D has many benefits, including increased cognition, immune health, bone health, improved mood and well-being.
According to examine.com “Supplementation can also reduce the risks of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. People deficient in vitamin D may also experience increased testosterone levels after supplementation.
For moderate supplementation, a 1,000-2,000IU dose of vitamin D3 is sufficient to meet the needs of most of the population. This is the lowest effective dose range. Higher doses, based on body weight, are in the range of 20-80IU/kg daily.
Vitamin D3 supplementation (cholecalciferol) is recommended over D2 supplementation (ergocalciferol), since D3 is used more effectively in the body.
Vitamin D should be taken daily, with meals or a source of fat, like fish oil.”
