Balanced nutrition is key, BUT these can help!
Even though balanced nutrition is the key element to success here, I believe that supplements can play a very useful role in this balance.
Extra support can be very beneficial.
Focus on the foundations of your nutrition and then experiment with herbs because they are like tools that unlock elements of biological metabolism.
Your body has unique needs.
The truth is that the best diet plan is the one that is best for you. The only way to learn what is best for you is to listen to the wisdom of your own body. A professional can assist you in learning how to understand the needs of your body. For example, people can work with me one on one.
No matter what, I’ll still share with you some of the best fat burning supplements that I have experienced and believe in.
Be careful if you have a sensitive stomach already. Some of the supplements below can be fairly stimulating.

1. Matcha (green tea powder)
If you have been following me for a while, this will come as no surprise to you.
Matcha provides some of the most nutrient dense source of caffeine possible. The antioxidants from matcha are loaded in free radical scavenging capability, while a significant source of amino acid L-Theanine nourishes the brain.
The green tea amino acid, L-theanine (L-THE) is associated with several health benefits, including improvements in mood, cognition and a reduction of stress and anxiety-like symptoms.
The benefits of matcha is something that is worth reading a book about.
2. Phycocyanin (the blue spirulina algae)
Used to be very rare as a supplement, but has lately gained accessibility due to advances in growing and extraction technology. This is still considered a complete food, which means that it is full of vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants and much more.
Previously, I talked about the benefits of green superfoods. I still concur with those benefits. However, blue superfoods are on the rise (despite still being more rare).
The blue pigment has a very high antioxidant ability. I actually think my eyes improve when I consume this supplement.
There is a level of naturally occurring abundance of phenylethylamine, considered to stimulate the brain. It also stimulates the metabolism and is great for exercise and fitness related events.
Also known as ACV, apple cider vinegar boasts a powerful reputation in the natural health community for blood sugar benefits.
Even though it is acidic, it is still alkaline forming due to the way it interacts with the body.
Many recent scientific investigations have documented that vinegar ingestion reduces the glucose response to a carbohydrate load in healthy adults and in individuals with diabetes. There is also some evidence that vinegar ingestion increases short-term satiety.
It is versatile as it can be used in salad dressing and refreshing beverages.
Apple cider vinegar is great for dealing with cravings. That’s also why I really like the Kevita brand of products.
Caution: Perhaps fat burning should NOT be a primary goal.
Let me be clear. While I do help clients burn fat and gain muscular development that is balanced, my primary duty is to teach people actions they can take to support the foundations of health like digestion/elimination, blood sugar regulation, and stress management.
You will understand the foundations of health in future blog posts.
As you understand the foundations better, you can begin to play with more advanced ideas relating to your nutritional enlightenment.
Burning fat can be rewarding.
