I interviewed trainer Jackie Warner recently, and before we spoke I asked you all to submit questions for her. Sugar user LD fit was curious to know Jackie's take on weight loss and fat burning supplements like CLA.Here's what Jackie had to say on the matter:
"I love certain supplements. There are some very safe supplements that don’t cause any harm to the body and you can take forever and I’ll give her a few. One is a branch change amino acids which are called ETAAs and they are the aminos that will help you with fat metabolism and then the other is glutamine, which is another amino acid. It is the only one to reach the blood stream barrier so it’s a very powerful one and the benefits to glutamine are numerous. Not just muscle building and weight loss but also a lot of studies have shown that it helps with memory and acuity. Then there is L-carnitine which is a good one to take — a major fat burner — and you can take it forever. These are all safe to take everyday, forever."
Jackie has more to say on the subject so keep on reading.
"And then what I like if you're actually trying to get more tone is take creatine and there is a new creatine you can take forever . . . I'm reading my bottle right now because I put it my shake . . . it’s called Cretatine Ethel Estro. And I'm all about taking fat burners that naturally occur in my body and that I can take forever safely, that aren’t going to change my brain, but change my body."
Do you take any of the supplements Jackie recommends?
