If you’re not familiar with CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) I’m excited to share why it can help support body fat loss.
However before we do, let me, as I always do, preface this with “There Is No Magic Fat Loss Supplement”
The only way to truly lose body fat in a healthy sustainable way is with proper diet and exercise. Why we would add supplements to our nutrition plan is to simply add more of the good stuff we can get from food while not having to over eat.
CLA is a perfect example of that because it is a good healthy fat that can be found in meats and dairy products, but in very low doses. These same meats and dairy products contain high levels of bad fats as well, so we couldn’t get a sufficient amount of CLA just from food in a healthy way. If you’re looking to understand fats more, after reading this article be sure to read my article “Good Fat Bad Fat”
According to clinical studies, in order to aid in fat loss we need around 3 grams per day, which is why this naturally occurring fatty acid is a great choice for a supplementation. These studies showed that over a 12 week period subjects that took CLA saw an increase in lean mass and a decrease of 3.8% in body fat versus the subjects who did not take CLA.
So while I will always lean toward the healthy diet and exercise program to lose body fat and get into our best health there are times when adding a supplement, especially a natural supplement such as this can help us to achieve our goals.
When purchasing your CLA you always want to try the best product you can find so be sure it contains Tonalin, ask for your CLA with Tonalin by name. The brand I personally use is called Lipocor advanced CLA formula which I purchase at my local NUTRISHOP. If you’re in South Charlotte, Ballantyne or Gastonia area definitely go check them out. Scott and his team are very knowledgeable about all the products so if you have questions, I recommend stopping in and saying hi!
If you’re looking for ways to help your fat burning progress, give CLA a try and see if it can work for you!
