The Truth Behind Weight Loss Supplements

eat better, exercise, feel goodOver the years, I’ve spent thousands of dollars on supplements for a number of reasons. In fact, one of my past times includes weightlifting, and you can bet that I used to feel anything that can help me reach my goals faster was worth paying for. I was delighted to see results with a handful of supplements including protein, creatine and BCAA’s, but didn’t have much luck with others. Every weight loss supplement I tried didn’t work. I couldn’t help but wonder, “Why?”

Why Don’t Supplements Alone Work?

The main reason that weight loss supplements didn’t work for myself was due to the fact that I didn’t do everything right—I relied on the supplements alone to do the work instead of using the supplements as an aid. Present day infomercials and advertising paints weight loss supplements as the answer to your fat-burning prayer, but that isn’t always the case—especially if you’re not following a proper diet and exercise regimen.

Doing Things Right

It’s happened numerous times before and will happen many times in the future. When a patient comes to see me for weight loss, they quickly want to know which pills will help them get the best results. But, they’re quickly surprised when I tell them that supplements are step two—step one is getting their diet and exercise program consistent. This is where the magic happens!

No pill will ever replace a high protein, metabolic enhancing diet or metabolic enhancing workouts—they just can’t. Think of it this way—the literal translation of the word supplement is “something that completes or enhances something else when added to it.”

To make your money go farther and actually have the supplements work, you must be on point with everything else. Otherwise, you’re throwing money down the toilet…literally!
