Losing weight isn’t about how many calories you can burn during your workouts, well… It is but there is more to it than that. The human body isn’t design to get fat.
Here are my top supplements that aid my fat loss:
There is a big misconception with women that protein will make us women build large muscular figures. That won’t happen, I promise. Protein is an absolute MUST for weight loss.
Your body metabolizes protein faster than carbs or fats. If your not active, carbs and fats will bre stored as excess in your body which will cause you to gain more weight.
IF you increase your protien you’ll gain more muscle mass and maintain lean muscle mass which will make it harder for your body to store the fat. Building muscle will prevent fat. BUT this doesn’t mean you’re going to have a bulky figure. Its really hard for women to get a bodybuilding / masculin sort of look.
Most of us won’t be getting our daily protein needs either so bulking up with extra protein does a number of beneficial things for us.
The reason protein powder is so popular is because it helps you reach your daily protein needs. A lot of us may not get the daily recommended amount of protein through our regular diet (about 56 grams). Protein powder gives us that extra little bit of protein we may need and possibly a little extra for those that are working out regularly.
there are a whole host of vegan protein powders out there so you can take your pick. Just make sure you do some research and try which is best for you.
Fat Loss Pills
These are not for everyone, but they do help.
Most fat burner pills do pretty much the same thing, they increase or give your metabolism a little nudge in the right direction. For some this will be enough to lose a pound without working out or changing diet much. But if you are following a good meal plan and you are working out, these can really speed the process up.
These pills can be replicated, using natural ingredients. While this is more expensive and less convenient, it can be done. The following are proven to increase your metabolism.
Protein rich foods force your body to use more energy to break them down and digest them. this is known as the TEF, thermal effect of food. So fish and other lean sources of protein.
Iron, Zinc and Selenium-Rich Foods
All three of these help your body to function properly and help multiple parts of your body. One thing they do have in common is: they are required for the proper function of your thyroid gland, which regulates your metabolism
Capsaicin, a chemical found in chili peppers, may boost your metabolism by increasing the number of calories and fat you burn.
Furthermore, caffeine may also help your body burn fat for energy and seems especially effective at boosting your workout performance.
