How to use the right supps to speed up fat loss.

In my experience, a lot of people get supplementation wrong for a number of reasons, and that’s too bad because, applied correctly, supplements can be just the push you need to get over the finish line and achieve your goals of shedding any excess baggage you picked up over the holiday season. The key with fat-loss supplementation is to understand the context in which you’re using something. It’s also essential to understand what you’re trying to achieve—because in order for something to work, you might need to adjust other things. What you shouldn’t do is overload your body with stimulants; while it might have a short-term metabolic benefit, in the longer run it will potentially negatively affect your metabolism and energy levels.

With so much noise over what supplements actually do and which ones to take, it can get confusing. That’s why I’m going to give you all the key points you need so you can create your own super-fat-burning stack.

SUPPS & FAT LOSS

Here are the main goals when picking a supplement to help burn fat quicker:

  • Boosting thermogenesis so that you’re able to achieve a greater energy deficit.
  • Improving insulin resistance so that you’re able to utilize energy more easily.
  • Increasing fat mobilization so that your body can expend stored fat as energy more readily.
  • Combating catabolism to retain as much lean muscle as possible, in turn boosting the metabolism.
  • Enhancing performance so that you can train harder and burn more energy.

These are the basic requirements of any fat-loss supplement. However, supplements must be used within the correct context. For instance, I’ve seen many people who are taking lots of supplements, yet their diet and training aren’t optimized. What this usually equates to is a lot of wasted money and effort. The reality is, supplements are going to help you lose fat only if your diet is completely tracked and on point. By this I mean that your body is in an energy deficit, you’re consuming the right macronutrients, and you’re following a high-meal-frequency diet as well as focusing on micronutrient intake. The same goes for training. With Y3T, intensity is always a key feature in every workout, so your energy expenditure is increased. Cardio must also be factored in, because to improve fat mobilization, generally you need to do some form of cardio on a regular basis when fat loss is the priority.

Once all these things are accounted for, the right supplements can absolutely accelerate fat loss. The reason I’ve gone through these points first is to give context, because I don’t want people to think that by immediately taking supplements, which have the potential to support fat loss, they’ll progress without the right diet and training plan in place!
