Do You Need Supplements For Healthy Weight Loss?

As I eluded to in an earlier post, I like to stay healthy. That includes making sure my weight is in check. What bugs me though are all the get slim or fit quick products we’re bombarded with every day. Let’s get something clear. You do not need additional supplements to burn fat naturally, although a few of the right ones can greatly help with your health, muscle maintenance and subsequently fat loss (if you are exercising as recommended).

Pills and supplementsYou don’t need any additional drugs or artificial enhancers. If anything, I’d urge you to stay away from these things as they may cause major side effects later. Just do a little in depth research first on anyone that has been known to use drugs to artificially enhance their performance, and you can see how it started affecting them later in life.

Here are a few examples of drugs that are commonly used to improve people’s workout and weight loss programs that I would stay away from:

Caffeine: Yes, caffeine is a drug. I’m not talking about the occasional latte with your friends, but I am speaking about caffeine pills. I find that caffeine just gets you hyperactive and increases your chances of injury during training, among other undesirable effects.

Steroids: Steroids affects the body by increasing nitrogen retention in the muscles, increasing healing and recovery, and affects the mind by promoting thinking that you are invincible. This allows you to work out harder and recover faster. The side effects of steroids include muscles being pulled loose from tendons because the ligaments are too weak to hold back the massive increase in strength in the muscles, your heart and cholesterol levels soaring, fatty acids deposits increase causing heart problems and an increase in blood pressure.

Aspirin: Aspirin reduces soreness but also seems to interfere with the nervous system‘s stimulation of muscles. It also has other side effects including heartburn, stomach irritation (which can lead to bleeding in the stomach), indigestion, pain, and nausea.

Successfully dropping weightRemember, stay away from drugs. The right supplements on the other hand taken in the proper amounts can go a long way to help you lose fat. To convince you, you may want to read up more on the benefits of using supplements for weight loss. I would recommend visiting Garcinia Cambogia In Canada’s website, as they do have an excellent write-up of how to best use diet pills and what results to expect.

Please note, however, if you are not following a holistic exercise and diet program designed to increase your metabolism then don’t bother even considering supplements other than those for your general health. Yes, products like Pure Garcinia Cambogia may marginally help you, but for serious, long-term weight loss there is just no way around being active and eating well. Take that for what it’s worth.
