We All Want to Be Skinny

We all want to be skinny.

It’s true.

I do. You do too.

It doesn’t always work out like that though.

Because of birthing children and harried lives and thyroid issues and not-so-clean diets and not-so-consistent exercise and I LOVE CHOCOLATE and a million other reasons.

And unfortunately, some of the medications I prescribe to help with mood disorders cause some weight gain. (Consider the trade-off though. Is a stable mood worth a thicker waist? It’s a personal decision.)

So.

Here are the top 4 supplements I recommend for weight and appetite control:

Alpha-lipoic Acid. ALA for short. This one is a fat burner, and helps to speed up metabolism. It also helps lower blood sugar levels and decreases insulin insensitivity. 

Apple Cider Vinegar. Mix 1 tablespoon of this in a small cup of OJ (to mask the pungent acidity) along with some honey and cinnamon. Down it twice a day. Makes you feel full and it’s delish!

PGX Fiber. This one also promotes the feeling of fullness, or satiety, thereby helping to cut down on portion size. I would recommend the Metanx Brand.

N-Acetylcysteine. Or NAC for short. This one is an antioxidant that is a precursor to the uber-antioxidant, GLUTATHIONE. A big side effect of this one is appetite suppression, which we can use to our advantage.

Happy digesting friends!
