The Best Fat-Loss Supplements
It seems like every time we turn around, there’s another advertisement for the best fat-loss supplements for us to believe in. Garcinia this, Acai Berry that, Yacon Molasses, etc., etc.
When I first found out that I was diabetic, the nutritionist told me that if I followed the “diabetic diet” that I would lose weight. That did not happen for me because of the damage I had caused to my metabolism.
I found it necessary for me to get “help” in resetting my metabolism. At least this is what I had read. And so I went in search of the best fat-loss supplements that I could find.
During my younger days, I lost my thyroid to graves disease. I was in the “fog” created by Chernobyl for a little too long which had some devastating effects. It is the only thing that we could think of that could have destroyed my thyroid.
The April 26, 1984, explosion remains the nuclear industry’s most severe disaster.
But instead of swallowing more “radiation” like they wanted me to; to kill my thyroid, I had it removed. I wasn’t about to put more radiation in my body. Ever since then it has been close to impossible to lose weight of any amount. You should read my post about healthy water if you don’t want to swallow radiation either.
a few of the best fat-loss hormones
Then finally I read about this hormone called “leptin”. It is one of the major fat loss hormones that we all carry. I found that my system was perhaps lacking in this area; actually, after I learned more about it, it was really pretty obvious that either my leptin had up and split or my body wasn’t listening to my leptin.
According to Wikipedia, leptin (meaning thin) is also known as the “satiety hormone”. This hormone is made by our adipose cells which helps to regulate our energy balance. Leptin also inhibits our hunger by telling us that we are full and no longer need food. I don’t ever feel satiated after eating, or at least I didn’t until about a month ago.
One thing I didn’t know is that we have another hormone responsible for our hunger called “ghrelin”. The definition of ghrelin is “a hormone that is secreted by cells in the stomach and promotes hunger before an expected meal, and it decreases after eating”.
As ghrelin runs, it opposes the leptin hormone. This means that ghrelin while it is making us feel hungry, after eating leptin is supposed to tell us that we are happily filled. Which means that leptin, if we have enough of it, should be helping to inhibit our hunger especially after a meal.
But this wasn’t the case for me. I was back in the kitchen an hour after I ate. However, this was before I was diagnosed with diabetes. I was always looking for something sweet too. I was to find out much later why this was happening to me. This gets a little complicated but I’ll share it all in a later post.
more of the best fat-loss supplements
About a year ago I was introduced to a company called BioTrust on the internet. I was elated, I was ecstatic as a matter of fact. Because BioTrust is a company founded by two healthy health fanatics. Actually this company is led by co-founders Josh Bezoni and Joel Marion.
BioTrust stated that “nutrition is the premium, natural nutrition brand committed to excellence, integrity, and giving back”.
And the focus of BioTrust while developing a number of their supplements, was on specific organic ways that they could help people such as myself. Those of us who have burned out our metabolism by crash or chronic dieting. This is just one of their specific goals.
BioTrust has developed several different fat-loss supplements. Each one is different in that for each specialized area of fat or weight-loss, a complimentary supplement has been developed to target that special need. But in my opinion, they have developed some of the best fat-loss supplements that are available today.
One of the many reasons that I was so excited, I have had several health issues to deal with over the past twenty years and I never felt like I walked away from my doctor with the best information on how to take care of myself after each issue or surgery was completed.
For instance; back when my thyroid was removed, the doctor (internal medicine physician) and my surgeon told me that I would need to supplement my calcium because that was one of the main functions of my thyroid.
They told me to “eat 10 Tums everyday”. Were they insane? Do they even know what’s in Tums? I won’t even use Tums for heartburn. But their suggestion stands to reason I suppose if you are using their reasoning. Since these are the very people who wanted me to take two capsules of pure radiation to kill my thyroid, instead of having the surgery. It doesn’t seem to me that beyond solving the illness or problem, that these people have any knowledge of what being healthy is about.
Let’s face it. Doctors, or most doctors, know not much about the holistic world of medicine or the organic side of health. They obviously didn’t know of a much better way for me to replace the calcium that I would be losing because of my thyroid loss. But I did.
I have to say that I learned many things when I was told about BioTrust.
I finally found some information about my digestive system that made so much sense.
This made me eager to try their fat-loss supplements. They use nothing that is not organic or natural. I was impressed.
I have completed a more in-depth review of some of the best fat-loss supplements in a later post. Actually, it could take several posts. I don’t want to drown you in a bunch of facts about 20 different products and what they do all at once. So in my posts going forward from here I’ll tell you what BioTrust says about the product. Then if I am using it, I will give you my opinion. It’s up to you to determine which may or may not work for you.
As I have mentioned, my metabolism has been broken for quite some time. It was due to the fact that I had done too much crash dieting throughout my life. I destroyed any chance of fat-loss on my own just by eating correctly; that is without any supplemental help. And of course, I would have to exercise like crazy. Believe me, I have tried.
But the next big whammy was the diabetes diagnosis. This tells me that nothing is working correctly in my body besides the hunger pains I feel, the sleep that I need, and my bathroom needs.
Now BioTrust is not the only company to come up with some of the best fat-loss supplements in the industry. I’ve come across a couple that actually know what is happening in a body with a burned-out metabolism, in a body that is so obese it’s hard to move, or in body diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I will do a separate post for each of these companies; they deserve their own praise too.
So if you want to build an arsenal of number-one, fat-burning, organic and all natural which includes spices, herbs, supplements, and vitamins? Those that have been developed by nutritionists and holistic practitioners. amd scientists? Then sincerely keep reading and pick and chose what you think is best.
A little note about commission I make. There are some products that I make a small commission on but I haven’t limited what I believe to be the best fat-loss supplements to those that I make a commission on. In fact, there are just a couple here that I get any commission on and believe me, if they weren’t exceptional products, I would not tell you about them.
Later I will talk to you about the daily kind of diary that I’m keeping so that I have a full record of everything that I do. From the time I get up, the meals that I eat, the meds that I take, the exercise that I get, and the time I go to bed. i won’t have to keep this life style diary forever; just until I get my A1C numbers under control.
Oh, and by the way, this little record that I have been keeping has been used by my doctors, nutritionists, and even a pharmacist that has been calling me to check on my blood sugar levels every other week. They finally added another medication to my list of meds by the name of Glipizide. I take it before dinner to try and get my numbers lower when I wake in the mornings.
I cannot wait until my A1C numbers are finally under control; I haven’t gotten my morning read down to 120 yet and that is what they are looking for. I think it’s because I still get up in the middle of the night a eat fruit; like a handful of grapes is what I had last night. Or a tablespoon of chocolate almond butter.

Hopefully you have gotten something good from this post. If losing weight is something that is just not happening for you, no matter what you do or what you eat, then you may want to consider a supplement or two.
