So here’s the skinny on weight loss: There is no magic pill.

If you see an ad online or watch an infomercial that sounds too good to be true, it is. However, this doesn’t mean there aren’t great options out there. The key is to remember a good weight-loss aid is designed to support your diet and lifestyle efforts, not promise unrealistic change with no effort.

Today, I want to share with you some of the safest and most effective weight-loss aids we have found that have helped our customers lose weight. Please note, a column like this is too short to go into great detail. To address your needs thoroughly, please stop in and see us. Our staff is trained to help you find your most effective option.

First, let’s look at protein. Did you know you need to consume at least 70 grams of protein each day to maximize weight loss efforts? Protein shakes can really help here. Two products I like are Raw Protein & Greens and Raw Fit. Each of these has a specific use, but all three provide roughly 20-25 grams of organic, non-GMO protein with a blend of specialized nutrients.

When looking for a dietary supplement, the options can be overwhelming. For me, two that really stand out are WellBetX PGX Plus Mulberry and FatBurner 4x. WellBetX uses a special type of fiber that helps you feel fuller while balancing blood sugar. FatBurner 4x combines many of the most popular weight loss supplements in one pill: green coffee, green tea, garcinia cambogia and raspberry ketones. Customers taking this product report increased energy and a faster metabolism.
