What is CLA and Why Should You Care?

Is CLA really “liposuction in a bottle?” You may have heard that CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a trans fat. You may even be alarmed by that statement, because we’ve learned that trans fats are bad. And, yes, technically, that’s correct – but only if we’re talking about the processed, man-made versions. CLA is a “good” trans fat that exists naturally in our food sources, which means it is vastly Read More

Why Can’t I Lose Weight?

Part One of Two It’s not always your fault you can’t shed those extra pounds. If you are like most people, this isn’t your first weight loss rodeo. You’ve exercised, counted calories, cut out fat, then cut out protein, and now even carbs. Maybe the weight came off, but chances are you’ve regained most, if not all, of what you lost. I want to encourage you: YOU can lose the Read More

The Lightning-Fast Way to Whittle Your Middle

Supplement with fat-burning CLA. Earlier this week I wrote about the beautifying, fat-blasting, and disease-fighting benefits of GLA (gamma linolenic acid), but I can’t tell you about GLA without also telling you about GLA’s BFF, CLA. What’s the difference between these two? GLA raises your metabolism by stimulating brown fat (adipose tissue) in the body to burn calories for energy, while conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) especially targets visceral fat (found Read More

CLA For Fast-Track Slimming

I’ve dropped 33 pounds but still have 20 more to lose before my cruise next month. How can I speed things up? My first suggestion for clients seeking a helping hand to fast-track slimming is always to take conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). This omega-6 fatty acid prompts the body to burn fat and promotes the development of calorie-hungry lean muscle mass. That means you’ll lose jiggles while gaining the tone that makes Read More

Short-Circuit Stored Fat

The real skinny on the “skinny fat” that blasts belly fat. If you’ve read my Fat Flush books, you know I’m a big believer in the power of “good fats” for weight loss! And when it comes to losing stubborn stored fat, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a critical fatty acid from the omega-6 family, has proven to do just that. In fact, the latest study, published in the journal Nutrition in 2012 found that Read More

Fire-Up Fat Loss

Isn’t it time you recouped your skinny metabolism and broke that weight loss plateau? Brand-new research on the super supplement conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may be all it takes to revive your resolve and start nudging the scale downward. Safer than questionable “natural” stimulants like white willow bark, guarana, kola nut, or yerba mate, CLA has a long track record of slimming results. I’ve been helping my readers and clients get Read More

Where Has Your Beef Been?

How to enjoy this “skinny food” safely.  With this year’s pink slime debacle, and yet another E. Coli outbreak in the news, ordering a burger may seem like a risk. But skip the beef, and you’re missing out on one of the best “skinny foods” around! The safest option – mostly grass fed beef – contains “skinny fats,” conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and the Omega-3s. In fact, one brand new Read More

Release Fat with Slimming CLA

CLA fights fat and dials down inflammation linked to cancer and heart disease. It’s been ten years. And I still marvel at the way CLA targets belly fat. That’s why I’ve made this “good” omega-6 fat part of the tried and true Fat Flush regimen. Changes in America’s food supply have made it difficult to get sufficient amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in the diet. For example, cows allowed Read More

Fire Up Fat-burning Genes

Lose fast with a metabolism-boosting fat. Many of my clients deal with the same frustrating issue—they’ve tried to speed up their metabolism by exercising two or three times a week, and though they feel great, the scale hasn’t budged. They are understandably confused and lost in the sea of tempting weight loss aids that are on the market. They want sure-fire but safe weight loss adjuncts without stimulants like caffeine or caffeine-like derivatives like guarana, kola nut, or Read More
