How does the body lose weight?
First things first, we have to differentiate between fat loss and weight loss. Fat loss is weight loss from fat (you guessed it), whilst weight loss is from your overall body weight; the loss comes from either muscle, water or fat. Fat loss is a better goal to aim for as a loss in body weight could decrease your muscle mass, leaving you with an increased risk of injury.
Now that’s out of the way, a goal to lose weight and burn body fat is a great motivator to keep in shape and fuel our bodies with nutrient-dense foods. Whilst we may be pumping it out at the gym and filling our bodies with nourishing whole foods, we wouldn’t mind a little helping hand.
Supplements help us maintain our overall health, and targeted supplements give us an extra boost when we need it most, like when you feel you’re catching a cold or to maintain glowing skin. Now there are weight loss supplements that, in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, can help you achieve your fat loss goals.
How to tell if you’re losing fat
You can track your weight loss progress on a scale, but it isn’t a necessary reflection of fat burnt. For women, a healthy body fat percentage sits between 21 to 35 percent, whilst for men it is between 8 to 24 percent. A scale can’t differentiate whether the number on the scale represents fat or muscle loss, it’s worth investing in a way to measure body fat to get an accurate picture of your body fat composition.
Supplements for help weight loss
You didn’t come to our website to read about ways to lose weight, you have already tried them! A combination of a healthy diet, variety of exercise, sleep, rest and hydration is a great start to tackle losing fat. But supplement lovers (like us) will be pleased to know there are plenty of your favourite nutrients that can help you out on your weight loss journey.
Caffeine lovers rejoice! Consuming your favourite energy-boosting beverages can aid in your fat loss progress. Green tea is a rich source of antioxidants, promoting liver, heart and brain health. It also works to slow the absorption of carbohydrates and boosts your metabolism. Coffee (the most popular liquid caffeine) also boosts the metabolism and can decrease appetite.
Green tea and coffee contain plenty of catechins and caffeine, which have been shown to regulate hormones to enhance thermogenesis (the process of burning calories to digest food). However, there are only so many cups of caffeine we can have a day if we want to sleep! Green tea leaf and coffee bean extracts are a great way to get their added benefits into your diet. Our Slenderiiz Day Drops contain both these powerful antioxidants as well as guarana seed extract, boasting even more caffeine, catechins and antioxidants.
The Slenderiiz Day and Night Drops are made of powerful, natural ingredients scientifically proven to aid in weight loss. Their potent blend works to curb appetite, control cravings, boost the metabolism and regulate hormones associated with fat retention. The Slenderiiz Day Drops pack the nutrients from caffeine, so what’s in the Night Drops?
The Slenderiiz Night Drops contain one of nature’s most sacred plants; Holy Basil. The Indian plant is considered to be a tonic for the mind, body and spirit. But what does it do as a supplement for weight loss? Holy basil has been found to lower blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol. It’s known for its stress-relieving properties, essential for the body to lose fat when it’s not under mental strain.
Slenderiiz Night Drops include a blend of natural ingredients to reduce stress and promote rest and calm. Supplements containing L-theanine, cordyceps powder and astragalus root powder work to reduce cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is the primary stress hormone in the body and increases sugar in your bloodstream. A reduction in cortisol levels is beneficial not just for weight loss but your overall health.
Lastly, our favourite supplement for weight loss is Slenderiiz Power Boost Cocoa – mainly because it tastes like chocolate! We not only love this to curb our sweet cravings rather than reaching for a chocolate bar but because it contains more nutrients to fight weight loss, maintain a healthy blood sugar level and promote lean muscle. It contains L-glutamine (great for muscle recovery) and improves protein metabolism and maintains muscle on a low-calorie diet. It’s perfect whether you are at the start of your weight loss journey or have been keeping up a healthy lifestyle for years. It tastes amazing too!
You can try both of these products in our Weight Loss Essentials Pack. This pack is a great way to keep you on track over the silly season. It also comes with a blend to promote a healthy digestive system, the Slenderiiz Giving Greens Drink and our favourite shake powder; Slenderiiz Pure Nourish Natural. Taking supplements for weight loss has never been so easy!
