Diet Pills and Supplementation

weightloss-supp-01a

Time to face the facts- there is no magic pill for weight loss. Weight loss is the result of eating healthy, exercising regularly and maintaing a healthy lifestyle. That being said, there are certain supplements that may be beneficial in aiding your weight loss efforts.

Women’s Health put together a list of 7 key supplements (I implement all of these into my daily diet). They were:

  1. Vitamin D
  2. Calcium
  3. Protein
  4. Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  5. Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFAS)
  6. Conjugated Linoleic Acide (CLA)
