Many women and men ultimately desire the amazing beach body you see on many TV shows with a flat tummy and a toned body. The common misconception is that in order to obtain a beach body, you may have to partake in many hours of hitting the gym with endless ab workouts. I am definitely not against gym workouts, on the contrary they are necessary but this should be alongside a good diet otherwise you are simply wasting your time.
Supplements can definitely help to hasten the process of achieving a beach body and I have outlined some recommendations below.
For many the first goal would appear to be one of losing weight. If you need to lose weight then diet and exercise will all help to achieve this. Supplements such as 10 Day Downsize will give you a great head start and boost fat loss. 10 Day Downsize is a quick and safe supplement containing herbs such as Green Tea and Cayenne Pepper that encourage calorie burning, curb the appetite and cleanse and rid excess water often held in the body due to our high salt intake.
If you don’t need to lose weight but simply wish to achieve good looking curves and prevent fat deposition, then the use of supplements containing Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) may be of benefit. Studies indicate that CLA may help people to achieve a balance between body fat and lean muscle when used in conjunction with exercise and a good diet. It is theorized that CLA mobilises the fat and diverts it to the muscle tissue where it can be burned off however you will need to exercise in order to burn this diverted fat otherwise it will be stored back into the fat cells.
Many people complain of the fact that they simply lack the motivation to exercise often due to low energy levels by the time they get back from work. I find that a supplement called Sibergin helps to enhance energy levels quickly and often within half an hour of ingesting this supplement. Sibergin contains one of the highest strengths of Siberian ginseng which not only helps energy but is great at helping the body to cope with the stressors of life.
One of the biggest concerns that I constantly asked about is how to tackle bloating. Bloating is invariably associated with a lack of digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are produced by the body in order to break down fats, carbohydrates, protein and fibres in order to maximise the availability of nutrients from the foods we eat. Like many processes in our bodies, as we age we produce less digestive enzymes which leads to stagnation of food in the abdomen and hence a distended abdomen. Using a quality digestive enzyme supplement helps many men and women in achieving a flat tummy since all food is broken down efficiently and there is no stagnation of this food in the gut. The digestive supplement that I recommend is Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes by Life Extension, take two capsules just before a main meal.
Many women complain about fluid retention in the legs. They have a great upper half but are let down by heavy looking legs. Legs account for roughly half of your body weight and are one of your most visible assets. Shape up your legs with some leg exercises. A handy device which you can use whilst at home or in the office is the Airogym Exerciser. This is a clever, pocket sized, inflatable cushion designed for use on the airplane to help prevent DVT. It is equally effective at enhancing circulation and shaping your legs.
A word of warning. Be gently on yourself and remember that a true beach body is one that is healthy and not achieved through drastic dieting and restriction.
