Trying to lose weight? Eat beef and drink tea.

Everyone knows that the best way to lose unwanted pounds is to eat fewer calories than you burn. So -you are tracking your food intake and following a lower calorie diet filled with healthy, nutrient-dense foods. Check! You are following a safe and realistic program of strength training and cardio physical activity. Check! Is there anything else you can do that might help you reach your weight loss goal? Drinking green tea and making sure you eat CLA from beef and dairy might help.

Green Tea

Green tea is packed with polyphenols and is a great source of antioxidants. The leaves from the plant Camellia sinesis are processed immediately after being picked and are less processed than black or oolong leaves, so they contain higher amounts of antioxidants. Green Tea is proven to help with weight management, ideally when you use it with a program of reduced dietary calories and increased physical activity. If you don’t like the taste of Green Tea, then Life Brand Extra Strength Green Tea Extract capsule supplements are a great option. Or try the Life Brand Green Tea with Apple Cider Vinegar capsules.

CLA

Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA, is a substance found in foods such as beef, milk and eggs. Your body cannot produce CLA, so you need to include it in your diet, or take CLA supplements. It has been studied for years to understand how it affects the balance between body fat and lean mass. And it is now understood that it helps support a modest reduction in fat mass and an improvement in body composition when used with a program of reduced intake of dietary calories and increased physical activity. If you don’t want to eat large quantities of red meat or dairy foods, a supplement might meet your needs. Life Brand has CLA in 1000 mg softgels you can try.

Want to try both? Life Brand CLA with Green Tea Extract combines both of these weight management ingredients in one convenient softgel. Check with your Doctor or Pharmacist before taking any new supplement to make sure that the product is safe for you to take.

So carry on with your weight loss plan, consider these extras and – good luck!
