Weight Loss Supplements Information
Here at Lose Weight Group, we're strong advocates of using diet and exercise for effective weight loss. We believe that in order to lose weight and keep it off, a permanent healthy lifestyle change is needed. No magic bullets here.
Weight loss supplements can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program to help maintain low calorie levels, get extra protein/nutrients, increase metabolism and energy levels.
In this section you will learn about nutritional supplements that can help you lose weight and get the nutrients your body requires.
Whey Protein Supplements
Whey protein supplements have traditionally been used only by bodybuilders and athletes, but are now being widely used in weight loss and health products.
Whey is the king of all protein sources. It's the fastest digesting, has the highest biological value (a measure of how fast your body can use the protein), is full of amino acids that aid in muscle repair and can help boost metabolism.
You can take whey protein in a protein shake, in a meal replacement shake, in protein bars and in some good health products.
Meal replacement powders usually consist of whey protein and complex carbohydrates. They contain little or no fat, are low in calories and are perfect to use between meals.
Meal replacement powerds are great because you can whip up well rounded a meal containing perfect ratios of protein and carbohydrates in seconds.
Essential Fats (EFAs)
Taking fat supplements when trying to lose weight? Sounds crazy right? Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are required for optimium bodily functions and can actually help you lose weight.
It's not uncommon when following a strict weight loss diet that you develop deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. Taking a good multivitamin and mineral supplement is essential for keeping energy levels up.
