1. Fish oil 

Fish oil contains natural fat burning properties. The properties of EPA and DHA reduce the amount of insulin required by the body and also lower blood cholesterol levels. The reduction in insulin levels trigger fat to be used for energy.

2. Andrew Lessman Essential-1 Multivitamin

Andrew Lessman Essential-1 comes with B-complex Vitamins, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin E in its most protective form. This multivitamin has high potency and has a unique ingredient of above two dozen nutrients.

3. Fat loss supplement 

An effective fat loss supplement such as Hydroxycut can also help in weight loss. The key ingredients in this supplement includes wild olive extract, wild mint extract and other extracts that speed up your metabolism and burn calories at a faster rate around the clock. It also gives an individual an extra burst of energy to get through the workouts.

4. l carnitine 

This supplement reduces oxidation stress and makes the body more efficient at burning calories. It also reduces the lactic inside the muscles and increase anabolic response, which is essential for burning fat calories.

Combining exercise and a proper diet will always lead to progressive weight loss. It’s never too late to start bettering your health – so take on the challenge and fulfill your New Year’s Resolution of losing weight.
