My Fat Fighters

I decided to put my personal list of supplements on it's own page. I am mainly using products by Advocare



Multi Vitamin and Mineral Supplement
Why do I take Coreplex?   The vitamins and antioxidants (think anti-aging) in CorePlex work together to help strengthen the immune system and fight the effects of free radicals.

Minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc help support healthy bones and many other biological processes. (My mother just broke her leg in four places just from walking!!!. She has Osteoporosis due to very poor nutrition after weight loss surgery. She is only 62 yrs old!!)

B-vitamins help the body convert fats, carbohydrates and proteins into energy and support the cardiovascular and neurological systems.* Vitamin C helps support and enhance the immune system. 

•Helps reduce the absorption and breakdown of carbohydrates and fats*    

How Does Carb-Ease Plus Work? You may have heard about Green Coffee Bean extract or White Kidney Bean Extract from Dr. Oz here recently. I'm not a huge Dr. Oz fan but it did spark my interest enough after watching his demonstrations to do some research of my own on these ingredients.  The studies were very impressive actually. However, Dr. Oz suggested you take 800 mg of the green coffee bean extract...umm the actual studies that they did had the participants taking either 700 mg, 1025 mg, or none. So I'm not sure where he picked 800 mg from. I'm actually taking 1200 mg myself. Rather than buying all these products separately Advocare has them in one pill. Yay. Here are the main 3 ingredients and how they work to help you lose weight.

 Phase 2® - This natural extract of white kidney bean helps delay the digestion and absorption of starchy carbohydrates without affecting the digestion of healthy carbohydrates such as fruit and whole grains. Studies show Phase 2 inhibits the activity of the digestive enzyme, alpha amylase, and allows a portion of ingested carbohydrates to pass through the digestive system without being broken down into a form the body can readily utilize. This process may help reduce the caloric impact of ingested carbohydrate foods.

ID-alG™ - Brown seaweed extract rich in polyphenols and antioxidants. Helps reduce the absorption of fat, inhibiting lipase and amylase, which are digestive enzymes.By reducing the body’s fat and carbohydrate assimilations, it may help control caloric intake and reduce fat storage. Clinical research indicates weight loss primarily as fat loss with contouring body benefits.

Svetol™ -Svetol is a non-roasted extract of select decaffeinated green coffee beans which contains a high level and specific ratio of more than twelve cholorgenic acids. These acids help regulate glucose metabolism and support the body’s breakdown of fat reserves for energy.




Assists in the binding, transport and removal of dietary fats
 











How Fibo-Trim works in a Low Carb Diet- Since I am on a Low Carb diet, I tend to eat quite a bit of fat. The low carb diet helps so that I do not absorb all the dietary fat that I am eating. However, since I am not eating a zero carb diet then some of the carbs that I do eat, will cause insulin to be released. Insulin is the hormone that tells the fat to go store itself! I use this supplement to help limit the fat absorption that takes place as a consequence of consuming high-fat meals. Cause let's face it, I'm not cutting my fat intake, it's what keeps me sane. It contains a blend of fibers and nutrients that assist in the binding, transport and removal of dietary fats from the gastrointestinal tract, moving the fat through your system before it has an opportunity to be stored on my thighs. The unique blend of fibers such as chitosan, guar gum, xantham and psyllium assist in binding to fat molecules before they can break down, reducing the absorption of these fat molecules and then moving them quickly through your system. Plus, all that fiber helps me feel full!



Just add water. 2 oz portable weight loss system.


Slim- I love these lil guys. It is a small portable 2 oz weight loss drink. It tastes like pinapple and oranges, very tangy and sweet. It helps in appetite suppression, energy and has metabolic enhancers. I love that it also contains Green coffee extract Svetol and Garcinia cambogia.






Last but not least: The only energy shot
that has ever worked on me.

Slam!!!   - This is my addiction. I'm so in love with this stuff that words can not express my graditude for it. I start every single day off with a shot of this. It gives me everything that coffee promises but doesn't provide. I feel alive when I drink one of these. It tastes absolutely great. Comes in three flavors and I have them all! It clears my mind so that I can do my job (I'm sure my patients appreciate that) and it's zero carbs. bonus. Cause i'd take it regardless.




Advocare has the supplements for every aspect of healthy living. Whether you need supplements to help you lose weight, build muscle, gain energy, fight the aging process, or even sleep better. These are just the supplements that I chose for myself for this time in my life. I will move on to other lines of products as the need arises. Time for the disclaimer...

Disclaimer: I am not a physician. I do not give out medical advice. Every supplement that I take to help me in my weight loss journey was decided on  based on my own research of scientific studies of certain herbs. I am attempting to improve my health and decrease my body weight. Please decide for yourself if incorporating supplements is right for you.
