Hey fellow dieters!
Most of you know by now that I’m a bodybuilding competitor in Men’s Classic Physique. Last Fall I won both of my shows in Masters and placed top 5 in the all ages (open) category. I’ve put all of my tips and secrets on shedding body fat fast in my diet guide. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up your copy, you can get it here: http://bit.ly/2S15QQS for just $20!
In my guide, I briefly discuss the topic of supplements. While they don’t perform miracles in helping you lose 20 pounds overnight, some of them do allow you to achieve optimum results. If you will grant me 4 minutes of your time, I’ll tell you what I personally use and recommend so you can maximize your efforts.
My contest coach (who spent several years in medical school) initially designed his own supplements for himself to use because he was tired of the cheap stuff on the market. Fast forward to today and his formulations are available to everyone. The Species Nutrition product line actually works and isn’t a waste of money. I’ve tried just about everything and have no complaints (see attached photo). He will be the first to tell you that there are “necessary supplements” which is your base, and what he calls “luxury supplements” which can help if you already have the base covered, but come at a higher cost. I’m going to focus on the necessary ones and just one luxury item. Plus I’ll give you a 25% off discount code that you can use at much as you like.
The bottom line is that you need to supplement with quality vitamins, minerals, fats, and fiber. These three products, Omegalyze, V-Mineralyze, and Fiberlyze cover this spectrum. I take them daily and below I’ll tell you why to pick these over anything else you’ll find in the store or see in any advertisement.
Omegalyze – is a complete essential fatty acid supplement that contains the correct amounts of Omega-3 EPA/DHA Fish Oil, Omega-6 Evening Primrose Oil, and Omega-7 Palmitoleic acid. The high amounts of EPA/DHA, and the inclusion of 6 and 7 is what sets product apart from all the others. Search online about the excellent benefits of these ingredients such as healthy cholesterol, blood sugar, hormone levels, blood pressure, heart, skin, hair, nails, fat loss and so much more. I also challenge you to compare the ingredients list on the labels of the other EFA’s you find or currently have. I did, and Omegalyze wins hands down.
V-Mineralyze – contains the most potent antioxidants, chelated minerals (immediately absorbed) and includes pharmaceutical grade vitamins and phytonutrients. Instructions say to take 10 pills a day. Your first reaction is, do I really need to take 10? YES! You can’t get the required amount of powdered ingredients into just one pill, it’s not possible and those one-pill-a-day vitamins are ineffective due to their paltry ingredient list and poor solubility. Remember you won’t need to take anything else including other super foods or green formulas. This saves you money and space in your cabinet!
Fiberlyze – fiber supplementation is often overlooked. In my guide I tell you to purchase a supplement made from psyllium husk. This product accomplishes that and tastes very good. You can let it sit if you like it thick, or drink it immediately if you want it in more of a liquid form. If you only eat a couple of daily meals that include fiber, then you definitely need to supplement with it. Not only does the product remove the waste from your colon more effectively, but it lowers blood sugar and insulin (thereby maximizing fat loss), lowers bad cholesterol, feeds the good bacteria, and even helps the immune system keep the intestines healthier.
These three products cover your all of your daily needs, and with my discount, you’re coming out ahead verses if you were to buy each of these types of products elsewhere. Not to mention you still wouldn’t be able to match the list of quality ingredients.
The one “luxury supplement” I will add to the list above is protein. Technically, you don’t need to supplement with it as long as you can eat it. However, eating some form of a lean protein source 4 to 7 times a day isn’t always an option. Enter the world of protein shakes. The product I recommend is below.
Isolyze – all protein powders are not created equal. Whey isolate is the gold standard with the hydrolyzed version of it being the premium. This Species Nutrition product contains both with NO lactose. If your current protein powder gives you gas, bloating, or an upset stomach, it’s cheap and you need to throw it away. You want the purest and highest protein yield per serving size in the manufacturing process, and only Isolyze has it at 27g of protein per 32g serving. Look at labels of others and they’ll range from 22-25g of protein. While this may sound trivial, it tells you he wants only the best for his customers with the absolute highest quality with the purest ingredients. Don’t pay for protein waste, pay for protein utilization!
