Nothing is ever going to help you beat a bad diet, but they can take you that extra step. Consistency in diet and exercise will take you plenty far on their own, but sometimes you feel like you need a little boost. There are a few supplements that can help you speed up the weight loss process.
There are a huge number of fat burners on the market, and some of them do help with metabolism and things of that nature. No, they do not just take the weight off for you, but they can help you lose a bit of weight a little bit faster. Here are some of the fat burners that I trust:
Max Effort Muscle’s Fat Burner (My favorite)
Animal Cuts by Universal Nutrition
Green Tea Extract by any generic brand
Amino acids can help your body recover in the absence of protein, which is a massive help when it comes to weight loss. Aminos do eat into your calorie goals for the day. This is especially useful when trying to stay in a calorie deficit. Here are some of my favorites:
BPI Sports Shredded BCAAs
Pre-workout can take you that extra mile and allow you to get all the extra energy into your workout. This comes in handy when eating in a calorie deficit where the body is generally tired and the workouts become less intense. My favorites in order:
Max Effort Muscle (Especially the raspberry flavor)
Amino Energy by Optimum Nutrition (I like the coffeehouse flavors)
Coffee (Simple but effective)
Digestive enzymes to help with gut health. The ones I use come from B.i.B. and really help me get the most out of what I eat.
Probiotics again to help with gut health. If your gut doesn’t digest well, these are more effective. I use the ones from ProBio-40.
