Fire Up Fat-burning Genes

July 28, 2011

119537709Lose 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 yerba mate.

My first choice for turbo-charged results is always conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).


The reason: it switches on the genes that speed both metabolism and muscle cell replication, resulting in more efficient fat burn.


I’ve been helping my readers and clients get more effective metabolism-boosting benefits with this time-tested supplement for over 10 years. As fads have come and gone, CLA—along with my Fat Flush programs—have shown consistent results. You even get more metabolism-boosting benefits from your workouts with CLA.

Before the 1970s, people didn’t need to worry about getting adequate amounts of CLA. Cattle roamed the meadows and ate grass, so beef, milk, cheese, butter, and cream were loaded with CLA. But let me tell you, “meat ain’t what it used to be,” and our grain-fed cattle just don’t supply the CLA our bodies are craving any longer. In fact, our natural intake of CLA has dropped by up to 80%!

To get the science-backed dose, I recommend supplementation. Your best bet—take one CLA-1000 three times daily at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For those who want an extra boost, try doubling this dosage for at least two weeks and then resume the regular dosage. Keep in mind, this critical fatty acid is a vegetarian version of what used to be in beef and butter. It’s made with a proprietary process from safflower or sunflower oil.

In addition to boosting the metabolism, CLA has also been shown to support the immune system, protect against heart disease, and inhibit the growth of some cancers. It may also help prevent and control adult-onset diabetes, along with bone loss, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis.

But don’t just take it from me…

“The results I get from using CLA-1000 are terrific! I needed to lose 50 lbs of unwanted ‘me.’ My body now not only looks smaller, but it FEELS smaller! My doctor is extremely pleased with my latest cholesterol testing results—they are in the range of ‘more normal’ than ever before. I have lost 5 lbs every month for the last 8 months, having lost 40 lbs total to date, and I am amazed that my skin is not baggy or saggy. After losing lots of inches around my waist I’m totally wowed that the ‘flabby tummy’ fat is tight and trim. Having just gone shopping, I am thrilled to be choosing from the racks marked ‘size 10!’ In just 60 days I know I will be in a size 8! With renewed confidence in myself and now armed with CLA-1000 I can achieve my dream!” – A.O. TX

“During Phase 2 of the Fat Flush Plan my weight loss had stalled, so I decided to try CLA-1000 to see if it would make a difference. It really helped me break through my plateau and continue losing fat.” – Lyndsay P. Scottsdale, AZ

“Before trying CLA-1000 I had a lot of body fluid causing my feet to swell. Since taking the product my feet are no longer swollen, and my mid section is smaller and firmer. I know I’m losing inches because I had to have my bra size changed. It has even helped with daily elimination. This product is wonderful!” – Nicole H. Kansas City, MO

“Before trying CLA-1000 I was tired, had low energy, and had belly fat around the middle. Since starting the product a month ago I am feeling better, have more energy, and less tummy fat.” – Jody S. Scottsdale, AZ

“I’ve been using CLA-1000 for about 5 years and it helps me maintain my weight. I’ve lost lots of weight and feel good!” – Marie B. Okeechokee, FL

As these success stories can attest, CLA is crucial to lasting results—it’s your fat-proof insurance policy. Plus, even if you somehow regain a portion of weight back, studies show you’ll redeposit that weight as 50 percent muscle.

Does it get any better than that?

    I’ve notice every time I try CLA I get increased “moles” or brown spots on my body that fade as soon as I quit taking it. Am I doing something wrong?

  2. Administrator

    Brown spots are a sign of liver detox. Try to cut back and see what happens!~

  3. Sarah

    Maybe Unikey will have a special with the Body Protein and/or whey protein and CLA-1000.

  4. liz

    Sarah thank you for your suggestion. These products do go well together. UNIKEY does have the on going special 15% discount when you get 2 Body Proteins.
    When you call in, you can also get quantity discounts of 15% or 20% when you buy 3 or 6 of any product.

    ” For those who want an extra boost, try doubling this dosage for at least two weeks and then resume the regular dosage.”

    Would it be safe for someone who needs to lose close to 100 pounds to keep up the double dose for longer than the two weeks?

  6. Bettina

    Fat Flush helped me 10 yrs ago. Now much older, 75, lost 8 lbs and that’s it. Totally stuck.
    No weight loss for months. Gave up until I spoke with your rep. yesterday while ordering Whey Protein. Her success was encouraging but then again I am over 10 yrs. older. I do work out at local Y…but I just started. Getting desperate to lose another 20 lbs. I am 5’2″ , small frame and currently weight 144 lbs.

    Also have brown spots. Read that a liver detox is needed. How?

  7. Administrator

    CLA might be very useful for stubborn weight loss – no question. With regard to brown spots, an antioxidant-rich formula like Oxi-Key may be very helpful in supporting the detox pathways which are very nutrient dependent.Fat Flush Body Whey helps to promote glutathione – the liver’s most plentiful antioxidant.. We also love Liver-Lovin (high in taurine – the body’s most important amino for getting rid of chemical wastes burdening the liver).

  8. Peggy Drew

    Wouldn’t a cleanse with the Super GI also address the brown spots? I believe the Super GI is used for detoxing. Thanks.

  9. cristee

    I’m a fan of CLA a for losing weight but the last few times I’ve used it I will begin to spot between my cycles. Not sure why but it has deterred me from using it again. Any suggestions?

  10. Administrator

    We suggest that CLA be utilized along with Omega 3s from fish, flax, or chia seeds to assure an optimum Omega 3/6 balance which could possibly impact menstrual cycles. Most of Dr. ALG’s followers use both!

  11. Deborah

    Can someone answer my question of July 29th please?

  12. liz

    Deborah: Dr. Ann Louise did say for “at least” two weeks. CLA is so deficient in our food supply that I’m sure doubling the dose would not be over doing it.
