Which supplements should you use if you’re trying to lose weight and/or strip unwanted body fat?
Actually, it’s a lot simpler than it may first appear.
Below, you can see a list of my preferred Fat Loss Stack.
This is the list of “go to” supplements my male and female clients use when following a fat loss training program.
The first thing you may notice, is that there isn’t a fat burner included. That’s because, despite the bold claims made on so-called “fat burners”, any differences in actual fat burning are minimal (statistically insignificant) at best!
I advise you to save your money, and focus instead on what works – i.e. supplements which have genuinely been shown to have a positive effect, combined with a great training program, and a solid diet.
Let’s take a look at what my clients use, and why they use them.
Myprotein Total Protein Blend
First on the list, is a solid whey protein powder.
But not just any whey protein.
It is perfectly suited to a fat loss diet, because the formula includes a blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, hydrolysed whey protein isolate, milk protein concentrate, and micellar casein.
This will provide a slower release of protein, keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
Adapt Nutrition Pre Train V2
Not all pre workouts are created equal.
Most products are below average, but even when you find a truly great pre workout supplement it is important to ensure it matches your training goals.
Some are better suited to endurance training. Others are well matched to bodybuilding and strength training.
And in the case of Pre Train V2, Adapt Nutrition have built a pre workout which is ideal for high intensity interval training.
Many of my male and female clients have put this product to the test, fueling with it before circuit-based workouts or HIIT cardio, and it does the job perfectly.
Myprotein Pure Caffeine
Caffeine is useful to have on standby during a fat loss program.
Not because of it’s purported fat burning benefits, but for it’s energy boosting effects.
You see, despite the fact that it is often touted as a “fat burner”, those effects are subjective to the individual and minimal at best.
What it will do, though, is give you a quick energy boost! This comes in handy if you’re flagging during a tough day at work, or if you’re using fat loss protocols like intermittent fasting and are looking for a kick up the a** without breaking your fast.
Here’s a collection of simple products I believe everyone should be using on a daily basis.
They “fill in the gaps” in your diet, by providing your body with the essential fats, vitamins and minerals you’re likely missing in your everyday food choices.
Most of us are obtaining nowhere near a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals each day, this makes a multivitamin an obvious choice.
Omega-3 is useful for both improving fat loss and building lean muscle tissue, and vitamin D3 is handy for increasing energy levels (especially if you live somewhere without much sunshine).
