Mass Guide to Fat Loss, Diet Pills & Supplements

Fat loss diet pills and supplements could claim a place in most people’s supplement stacks. During a ‘cut’, where the aim is to sharpen the hard-earned muscle developed during the ‘bulk’, diet supplements can contribute to motivation, to energy levels and to the all-important preservation of muscle mass. Here we discuss what the best fat loss supplements for you could be, and, importantly, when they could work for you.

Weight loss versus fat loss

If you’re reading this, then you likely already know that the secret to weight loss is simple: ingest fewer calories than you burn in a day and you will lose weight. Equally, if you’re reading this, you might have found that the weight comes off when you under-eat, but so too does the size and strength that you’ve built.

When you under-eat, you’re not giving your body the nutrition it needs to maintain its muscle mass. You will lose strength; you will lose size. Eat unhealthily, undertrain and sleep too much or too little and watch your body composition oscillate wildly. Eat well, train hard and recover and your body fat percentage will decrease with minimal losses, hopefully. Here enter fat loss supplements and diet pills…

Fat loss diet pills and supplements

No matter whether you’re an athlete, bodybuilder or someone looking to generally work on their body composition, the best fat loss diet pills and supplements will help you to absorb the nutrients you need on your cut while maintaining the requisite caloric deficit.

The best protein powder for fat loss

Protein is essential for the maintenance of muscle. Increased protein intake can tip the metabolism away from catabolism (breaking down muscle for energy) towards anabolism (building muscle), particularly post-workout. Check out our protein powder supplement guide below for an in-depth discussion of this key sports nutrition supplement.

Whey isolate protein supplements typically contain the highest percentage of protein per scoop. Further filtered to remove extraneous fats and carbs, isolates also contain less lactose than whey concentrate, which can make it easier to stomach. When you’re looking to keep your protein intake high while limiting your calories, then whey protein isolates are the go-to sources of this essential macronutrient.

The best amino acid supplements for fat loss

If proteins are the ‘building blocks of life’, then amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The body can produce many of these key compounds. And yet, the ‘essential’ amino acids – the ones linked with sports nutrition and muscular development – cannot be produced by the body. Essential amino acids, which include the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), must be derived from the diet. You can read more about the essential and non-essential amino acids used as sports supplements in our guide below.

The best amino acid supplements can come in either pill or powder form. BCAAs are thought to be most effective in the preservation of muscle mass when training fasted – potentially key to keeping your size while on a cut.

The best diet pills for fat loss

There are myriad terms for fat loss supplements: thermos, burners, shredders, boosters, are just some of them. Typically, they will claim to make the body burn fat for fuel, boost your metabolism and keep you feeling pumped throughout the day. In reality, the best fat loss diet pills and supplements can only support each of the above. Normal energy levels, concentration and drive are consequent on appropriate training, recovery and nutrition. Fat loss supplements can only take you to the next level, if you’re working from this balanced platform first.

Where omega fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) supplements undoubtedly excel as fat loss supplements is in their cost-effective dosage of these popular bodybuilding and athletic compounds. Without ingesting the vast quantities of food – namely meat and fish – that would be needed to synthesise similar amounts, you greatly minimise the risk of ending the day in calorific surplus.

In summary: eat right, train hard and rest. And then look to fat loss supplements to dial in your physique.
