Let’s admit, we get impatient sometimes and depressed a lot of times during our weight loss journey. We need all the motivation to help us keep going. I have faced plateaus when I don’t shed a gram, although i sweat my life out ! Then , the churning wheels of my brain go cranky:P. Majority of the times when I have faced this situation and I go for checkups, I get to know I have messed up with some thing or the other. You see, our bodies are really complex :P. We need more if we sweat more, its as simple as that !
Last time I remember when my weight loss stopped, i realized I was anemic and then I gained weight more than the speed of rocket :(. So, when trying to lose weight , you should never miss out the nutrients your body needs !
Below are some of the weight loss supplements which I feel help and are must to have. No, I am not talking about any magical pills which people claim to have used and they shed some 30 kgs of weight and 20 years of life :P. I don’t believe in them !
So, Let’s go !
Omega -3 fish oil capsules – If you are a strict veggie, give it a skip. One of my doctor friends said many people are deficient in Omega -3. Omega-3 causes fat burning.
Vitamin B – These help in increasing metabolism, promoting cell growth and healthy skin. Must have !
Multi Vitamin – The body’s efficiency to burn fat increases when you take multi vitamin. You need more multi vitamins if your life style is active. This helps a lot in burning belly fat. If you multi vitamin supplement has enough Vitamin B, you can skip the latter.
Probiotics – We have already discussed about probiotics and our gut here. Probiotics are important for our immune system and healthy digestion. Since we have so much pesticide in veggies and fruits, the probiotics that we receive from them is not sufficient. Yakult is one easily available probiotic, i will write more about it soon. Curd is rich in probiotic and it is yummy too :). Try having curd , 2 small bowls with meals everyday.
Protein powder – Protein powder are available in various varieties – soy, whey etc. Whey is so far the most popular protein supplement. I found whey protein to be the most effective for me.Soy is not good for health, read here.
Whey protein is one of the product from cheese manufacturing protein. Cheese is rich in protein, i luvv it :). Whey proteins contains all the amino acids. This helps to 1) improve our gut flora 2) stengthens and repairs muscles which is much needed when you work out 3) improves metabolic rate and fat burning. I am looking for a good whey protein, if you know one, please let me know 🙂
Green Tea / Chamonile tea – Rich in antioxidants, these boosts our immune system and makes us burn fat. Now it’s not mandatory to have green tea hot. I am not kidding :P. I take green tea in my water sipper to gymn and it works great. Gives me the energy I need in the gymn ! Chamonile tea is also a good option. It also rich in antioxidants and relaxes our body. You can have it at night too!
Fiber supplement – This is not very popular amongst common people. I know of a few sports people who take fiber supplement. Fiber is extremely important for cleansing your body. It is said that we need 30-40 gms of fiber a day. I have not tried any fiber supplement till date. Have you ?
Apart from these supplements , there are a lot of foods which maximize weight loss, you can read them here.
