This is something I get asked all the time!!
In fact I have a client who brings me a new pot of pills to have a look at almost every week!
It drives me crazy.
Back when I was new to the personal training industry I used to advise all sorts of supplements to my clients.
I’m embarrassed to admit it but I did.
Sure some of them got results, but they also wasted a lot of money.
Now I have a completely different approach and it works a lot more effectively and my clients are getting amazing results.
There is no such thing as a good supplement for weight loss.
Don’t believe what you hear… ever!
There are some supplements that can aid with your goals but there are way more important things to do first than to take supplements.
Like sorting your nutrition out first.
I am a real firm believer that the body stores fat to protect it from dangers; toxins, dehydration, starvation and stress.
I also believe that you should focus your efforts of becoming super healthy rather than trying to lose weight.
You’ll still get the same desired effect (weight loss)
but one way will be better in the long run.
If you’re just focused on weight loss then you’re most likely going to be restricting your body of nutrients.
If however you focus on getting healthy then you’re going to be giving your body a tonne of nutrients.
This way you’ll have more energy, your skin will look better and you’ll feel better as well as LOSING WEIGHT!
So rather than focusing on supplements for now (we can discuss this in the future), focus on getting the nutrients your body needs to allow it to start losing weight!
I make it a challenge for some of my clients; how many nutrient dense foods can you get in each day?
They seem to enjoy this way a lot more, especially as I’m not making them “starve” or “diet”… and more importantly they are
So get stuffing!
That’s all for today,
