Note that these supplements are all recommended but NOT necessary! Your weight loss results are in no way depending on the supplements outlined below.
They are simply here for those of you that would like a little extra help because they CAN help the weight fall off faster!
They are also listed in order of importance.
Did you know that overweight people have complete different gut bacteria than those at a normal weight?
Certain probiotics may be better for you than you may have realized. Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LPR), for instance, has been shown to help obese women achieve sustainable weight loss.
Even up to 50% more weight loss in some cases!
We have our own brand of Probiotics here at Avocadu called Gut-13.
It’s our very first supplement (but more to come!) because we believe that gut health is THAT important!
Our specially formulated probiotic supplement contains:
- Over 50 Million CFU’s Per Serving
- 13 Different Gut Healing Strains
- Delayed Release for Deeper Support
- Made in the USA
You can read more about it, why it’s important for weight loss, skin health, and so much more on our probiotics page.
Protein plays a couple of major roles in weight loss. First, your body burns more calories metabolizing proteins than it does processing carbs or fat. Second, protein helps you build and maintain muscle tissue.
Since muscle tissue burns more calories than body fat (even when you’re just sitting around), building and maintaining muscle is key for weight loss. Most of us don’t consume enough protein from our daily diet to get the true weight loss benefits, which is why a protein powder can provide an added boost.
*Remember that a good protein powder will contain less than 3g of carbs and sugar per serving and should provide 20-30g of protein per serving.
We recommend ISO 100 Hydrolyzed 100% Whey Protein Isolate by Dymatize. It tastes better than any other protein powders that we’ve tried, and a big tub will last you a long time. The vanilla is also good.
If you need a vegan or vegetarian option, we recommend Vega Sport Performance Protein Powder, Chocolate. Low carb vegan protein powders are harder to find because vegan protein powders are often made from high carb foods such as brown rice and peas.
