As spring and summer fast approach and tank top and bathing suit season are in sight, you may be wondering what you can do to ramp up your natural weight loss plan and lose those extra five or ten pounds. Today and in the next few days to come, I will tell you about some of the best natural remedies for weight loss.
One of the most important nutrients you can take for natural weightloss is conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
CLA is mixture of omega-6 fatty acids that are special because of double bonds in their chemical structure. Studies show that CLA supplementation reduces fat tissue mass, without reducing lean muscle. Animal products such as beef, turkey, lamb, and milk are the best food sources of CLAalthough I generally recommend that most postmenopausal women avoid these acidic foods. Fortunately, there are vegetable sources, including soy and safflower oil. However, since postmenopausal women tend to gain weight and lose muscle tissue at the same time, more concentrated and consistent CLA supplementation is important. Take 3,000 mg daily, in divided doses and with meals. Two good brands are Tonalin 1000 CLA and Jarrow Formulas Formulas CLA 750.
