Let's admit that during our weight loss journey we sometimes get impatient and often get depressed. We need all the motivation to keep going. I've experienced plateaus when I haven't shed an ounce even though I've sweated my life! Then the churned wheels of my brain get grumpy. 😛 Most of the times I am faced with this situation and undergo examination, I find out that I have messed up something. You see, our bodies are really complex. We need more when we sweat more, it's that simple!
The last time I remember my weight loss stopping, I realized I was anemic and then I gained more than the speed of a rocket. So, when trying to lose weight, never miss out on the nutrients your body needs!
Below are the best 7 weight loss supplements that I feel help and a must have. No, I'm not talking about magic pills that people supposedly used and they lose about 30kg in weight and live for 20 years: P. I don't believe in them!
So let's talk about the top 7 weight loss supplements that everyone needs to try.
- Omega-3 fish oil capsules –
If you are a strict vegetarian, skip it. One of my doctor friends said that many people are lacking omega-3s. Omega-3 causes fat burning.
2. Vitamin B –
These help in increasing the metabolism, promoting cell growth and healthy skin. Need to have!
3. Multivitamin –
The body's efficiency at burning fat increases when you take a multivitamin. You will need more multivitamins if your lifestyle is active. This helps a lot in burning belly fat. If your multivitamin has enough vitamin B, you can skip the latter.
4. Probiotics –
We've already talked about probiotics and our gut Here. Probiotics are important for our immune system and digestive health. Since we have so much pesticide in vegetables and fruits, the probiotics we get from them are not enough. Yakult is a readily available probiotic, I'll write more about it soon. Quark is rich in probiotics and it's delicious too :). Try to eat 2 small bowls with meals each day.
5. Protein powder – Protein powder is available in different flavors – soy, whey, etc. Whey is the most popular protein supplement to date. I found whey protein to be the most effective for me. Soy is not good for your health, read Here. While wHey protein is one of the products made from cheese making protein. Cheese is rich in protein. Whey proteins contain all amino acids. This will help do the following.
to improve our intestinal flora
to strengthen and repair muscles that are badly needed during exercise
Improve metabolism and fat burning.
6. Green tea / chamomile tea – Rich in antioxidants, it strengthens our immune system and lets us burn fat. Now it is no longer imperative to have green tea hot. I'm not kidding: P. I take green tea in my water trap to the gym and it works great. Gives me the energy I need in the gym! Chamomile tea is also a great option. It is also rich in antioxidants and relaxes our bodies. You can have it at night too!
7. Fiber additive – This is not very popular with ordinary people. I know some athletes who take a fiber supplement. Fiber is extremely important in cleansing your body. It is said that we need 30-40 grams of fiber per day. I haven't tried any fiber additives so far. Did you?
