31) Use your camera

Taking photos detailing your progress will both help you gauge your progress and serve as motivation when you see that what you’re doing is actually working.

32) Don't go it alone

Find a partner to go through this process with, and make yourselves accountable to each other. You’ll be less likely to skip the gym if you have someone banking on you to show up and give it your all.

33) Add carnitine to your diet

A study in The Journal of Physiology found that healthy males experienced a 21% increase in muscle growth and an 11% increase in work output after taking two grams of L-carnitine twice daily for six months. This amino acid helps you perform by decreasing lactic acid buildup.

34) Consider CLA

A study from 2002 showed that supplementing with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) can be effective in enhancing the fat-burning process. In a random double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers found that after 12 weeks of 1.8g of CLA supplementation three times daily, along with 90 minutes of exercise three times a week, subjects lost about 15% of their body fat.

35) Eat more fiber

It’ll control your blood sugar, significantly improve your ability to move your bowels, lower your cholesterol, and help prevent overeating. Try to get 30 to 40 grams of fiber per day from such food sources as whole grains, lentils, broccoli, peas, and raspberries.
