Every six weeks, I lead a group of ladies through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss. This amazing program teaches you how to lose weight through carb cycling, intermittent fasting, and intentional workouts (by intentional workouts, I mean we’re not working out for hours each day and we’re not doing tons of crazy cardio).
As we work through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, lots of ladies ask me about the supplements I use to burn extra fat, stay in shape, and give myself an extra boost of energy when I need it. Here are the best supplements for women who want to lose weight.
The 5 Best Supplements for Women who Want to Lose Weight
Your micronutrients are key and the most important supplement you can take. I take Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Greens. They’re made up of five raw organic greens, including wheat grass, kale, alfalfa leaf, barley grass, and spinach.
After I break my fast, I take my greens with 1 tablespoon of Cholorfresh, an natural deodorizer and cleanser. However, you can mix your greens into almost anything including water, other beverages, smoothies, soups, or sauces!
Collagen helps prevent saggy skin and helps with gut repair. I personally love Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. Collagen Peptides come in powder form so you can mix them into any drink or smoothie.
Vital Proteins also offers a sampler pack if you’d like to try some of their different collagen options before buying the full sized version!
Pruvit Ketones are amazing. They are exogenous ketones that almost instantly get you into ketosis (if you don’t know what ketosis is and you’re trying to lose weight, you need to check out this post). The MAX Ketones do not break your fast, but the other versions do. I have been drinking these for almost a year and they have replaced my BCAA (almost), and pre-workout drink. Most of my clients who drink these along while following the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program are dropping 10-30 pounds in 12 weeks. I typically mix the MAX ketones with my collagen first thing in the morning and use it as a pre-workout.
BCAA’s are the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine, which make up about 35% of your body’s muscle protein. Your body can’t make these amino acids on it’s own, so taking them in powder form is a great way to give your body an extra boost. In short, BCAA’s help you get more out of your daily workouts by fueling your muscles and minimizing protein breakdown. The only downfall is that they can have a lot of sugar. This is the cleanest brand I have found that tastes decent. BCAA’s aren’t really necessary if you’re also taking ketones, but if you need an afternoon pick me up or just want something other than water these are great!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has a ton of health of benefits. Apple cider vinegar can help with weight loss, reduce cholesterol, lower blood sugar levels, and improve symptoms of diabetes, just to name a few. I like to make a small drink out of apple cider vinegar and have a shot of it in the morning. You can drink up to 1 Tablespoon of this drink without breaking your fast.
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
4-6 oz of water
1/2 a fresh squeezed organic lemon
Mix all together and take a quick shot
