You might find it overwhelming to do all the healthy things you “should” do (before you run out of time and/or money, anyhow).  To support you in your health journey, I like to recommend “double-duty” supplements that help you with more than one aspect of your overall health.  Weight loss is no different!

L-Carnitine is an effective amino acid for fat burning.  L-Carnitine transports fats into the mitochondria, where they are converted into energy.  It is especially useful when starting a new exercise routine.  A fat-burning exercise will have much more impact if L-Carnitine is taken just prior; the activity will “free-up” the fat, but the L-Carnitine will make sure that fat is efficiently burned.  Double-Duty:  L-Carnitine also protects the heart and preserves muscle mass during weight loss.

Green tea increases your metabolism and intensifies fat-burning.  It also helps reduce belly fat, which is the prime contributor to blood sugar irregularities.  You can drink brewed green tea to get your daily dose, but taking green tea extract is another highly effective way of getting plenty of fat-burning green tea into your system!  Double-Duty:  There’s a long list of health benefits attributed to green tea, including:

  • protects from cancer and heart disease
  • regulates glucose levels
  • reduces LDL cholesterol
  • promotes healthy teeth
  • restores damaged brain cells and protects brain cells from dying
  • stabilizes blood pressure
  • eases depression
  • protects the immune system from the flu

Not bad for one plant!

Achieving your ideal weight and vibrant health doesn’t have to be a complicated process, but it must be tailored to your unique needs.  Some of our patients consider doing a detox in order to kick start their weight loss and rid themselves of toxins that build up and cause health problems.  We guide others through a fat flush plan or hCG, as well as help with nutritional guidance.  Rest assured, when you ask for our help, we’ll be treating ALL of you.  This holistic approach changes your lifestyle, which makes reaching your health goals easier and more enjoyable.
