We’ve heard so many ways to “lose weight quickly.” From crash dieting to weight-loss pills, and workout fads, what is really the best way to shed some fat to get ready for summer? As always, the best and safest bet, is putting in some hard work and determination at the gym. (Are there any EōS Fitness members out there? Reopening is happening at many locations!) The gym, along with a good, clean diet can definitely help in shedding off some extra fat. But, what if you’re doing all of that, and still not seeing the results that you’d like? When you go to the grocery store, there is an aisle of supplements, LOTS of them, but which ones will you benefit from taking? From Fat Burners, to Carb Blockers, Thyroid Hormone Boosters, Appetite Suppressants, and the list goes on. But what is the right choice for you? Everyone’s body is different, but who knows their body best? YOU. So, rather than randomly picking up supplement bottles off and hoping for the best, we’re going to shed some light on the different ingredients out there to look for in order to help shed off some of that excess fat you may have put on during quarantine.
When you think of caffeine, I bet coffee and soda come to mind, right? Caffeine is not all bad, it just depends on the source you’re getting your caffeine from. Not only can it help you lose weight by giving you more energy, but also helps in suppressing your appetite. Caffeine is a diuretic that can help you excrete excess body fluid throughout the day. TMI, huh? Rather than getting your caffeine from coffee or soda consider getting your daily caffeine from a supplement. However as with any supplement, exercise or dietary regimen, be sure consult your physician before you start. Also we always suggest starting with the lowest dose to test your sensitivity to the product.
Green tea helps increase your metabolism and also fat oxidation. It’s rich in antioxidants that help fight off free radical damage, but is also a great way to help manage your weight. Green tea stabilizes blood sugars, especially after eating a meal, which will also help reduce your insulin levels from spiking. Maybe drinking green tea isn’t well, your cup of tea? No worries! It’s also available in pill and powder form. Oh, and one of the greatest characteristics of green tea, it also serves as an appetite suppressant!
What is L-Carnitine? Well, this supplement can be found in natural sources such as dairy products, avocados, and red meats. L-Carnitine itself is a non-essential amino acid that provides energy by metabolizing food. L-Carnitine takes long-chain fatty acids and uses them as energy by putting them into mitochondria of the cell. Wait, what? Basically it turns food into energy that can be used by the body, and is also great for reducing muscle fatigue during workouts, as well as burning fat. You’ll notice that when taking a product with L-Carnitine, your hunger pangs will subside.
Okay, so now you’re thinking, I need to go to the store, or order online, some caffeine pills, green tea pills, and L-Carnitine pills, right? Well, you could, but there’s another option: Thermo Plus, by N2G. This dietary supplement includes everything we’ve covered and helps to improve energy, crush cravings, and help you lose fat with Lyzme5! For best results it’s recommended that you take 2 capsules first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. You can order online, and save the trip to the store. Of course, before using any supplement products, you should consult your doctor, as some medications cannot be combined with certain products. We hope you feel more comfortable in knowing what some of the best fat burning ingredients can do, and how they can help you in reaching your goals this summer!
