Get ripped in 30 days with these dietary supplements

Do you want a nice ripped body? It's not only hard workout and clean eating that can help you on your way to losing weight but also a variety of dietary supplements!

Why do we want to lose weight?

Why do we want to lose weight? It can have a number of reasons. Whether you have a health or aesthetic motivation, the point is that it takes firm determination, conscious eating and a physical exercise programme. But is it possible to get a ripped and toned body in 30 days? It takes about one week to start losing weight by burning body fat; in 30 days, you can more or less precisely predict the ideal weight you can lose in a healthy way, from your body fat. For some, it's just about all the weight they want to lose, whereas for others it's only a start; what matters is that you should always set realistic, foreseeable goals for yourself, and one month is such a period. During that time you can lose about 4-5 kg in a healthy way. The good news is that during the first one month you have a good chance of losing more than that, since during that period you also lose a lot of water. Following a stricter diet, you may as well lose 6-7 kg, although it's only realistic for those with greater excess weight. Let's see which dietary supplements can help you lose weight and get ripped, and speed up your work!

Supplements to help you get ripped

A fundamental condition of losing weight from fat is a negative calorie balance. It means that you need to take in fewer calories than what you use up, and therefore your body will rely on your reserves, that is, your fat cushions, to break them down for energy.

It sounds pretty simple. But what about your appetite, the foods you crave for, your slowing metabolism, the enervation, the tiredness? How can losing weight become a lifestyle which you don't regard as a burden but the most natural way of living your life, which even results in a more attractive appearance and a mental cleansing? That's where dietary supplements will be your greatest help, supplementing the appropriate low-calorie diet and training plan to prevent you from getting enervated from the low calorie intake, to help you maintain your muscle mass and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, so that you can fully meet your challenges both at your workplace and during your workout, as well as to satisfy your craving for sweets. Let's see the six dietary supplements which will be of great help to you!

Before workout

1. L-carnitine ampoules: Take L-carnitine 30 minutes before workout so that it can exert its maximum effect when you begin training. L-carnitine is an amino acid which also occurs in a natural form in your body; still, there are a number of effects which can reduce its amount. It's also found in food, but in a low-calorie diet, the quantities will probably not be adequate, and also, taken in with food, it may not function so effectively, as you're also taking in other nutrients which will be the primary sources of energy for your body, instead of your fat reserves. As regards its function, it supports the transport of the fatty acids released during workout, and therefore their use as fuel. Thus, you'll be more energised by burning your own fat reserves during workout.

2.Super Nova: Super Nova is a pre-workout booster supplement with no sugar, so you can as well use it during a diet and when losing weight. It contains ingredients which energise you, support your concentration and make you focused during your training, mentally as well as physically. You'll feel much more fired up to work out, it will boost you, rev you up and help you get pumped up, so you'll really feel it in your muscles how intensively you've used them.  It supports the flow of nutrients to the body parts that you work, so their recovery and development will be supported, too, and it also helps waste products to be removed, which, again, supports faster recovery.

3.Crea Zero: It's another sugar-free creatine-containing product, recommended to both men and women to support muscle work. Crea Zero is an easy-to-dose, sugar-free, flavoured powder formula with creatine as its main ingredient, which increases physical performance during repeated short-term, high-intensity exercise. Vitamin B6 contributes to reducing tiredness and fatigue, and the product also contains other special ingredients such as AMP (nucleotide) and alpha lipoic acid (antioxidant). The 15 active ingredients will supply you with energy even when you've used up all your reserves, which may quite often happen during a diet.

During workout:

1.BCAA Zero: BioTechUSA’s flavoured BCAA Zero amino acid product contains 2:1:1 ratio of leucine, isoleucine and valine amino acids, which greatly enhance each other’s effect on building muscles and energising, and they have a natural, specific proportion in muscles. They are complete with vitamin B6, which contributes to normal protein and glycogen metabolism and reduces tiredness and fatigue. The fundamental role of amino acids lies in recovery. When you're on a diet, losing weight, it's crucial that you should maintain your muscle mass, which is necessary for maintaing the rate of metabolism, for a tight and toned body, as well as for breaking down fat reserves, leaving you with nice and lean muscles. You can use BCAA Zero to prepare a delicious drink during workout.

2.Glutamine Zero: BioTechUSA's Glutamine Zero is a flavoured powder formula for use before, after, or even during workout. The active ingredient of the product contains 90% conditionally essential glutamine amino acid. Glutamine accounts for 60% of our muscles, so it's particularly important for muscle recovery. Glutamine intake is also important for a healthy immune system. During a low-calorie diet, there's a good chance that you also take in smaller amounts of vitamins and minerals than would be necessary, so you'll also need to pay attention to strengthening your immune system. During workout, you may even combine it with BCAA Zero; they excellently complement each other both in terms of flavour and active ingredients, as both amino acids are important for building and maintaining muscles.

3.Intra Workout: Product containing 10 active ingredients to supplement fluid intake during workout. The key ingredients of the product – BCAA, L-carnitine, vitamins and minerals – will help you achieve your goals. Besides L-carnitine, magnesium, niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and vitamins B6 and C contribute to reducing tiredness and fatigue. Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function and the normal functioning of the nervous system, vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, and both contribute to maintaining normal psychological function. Chromium contributes to maintaining normal levels of blood sugar. Zinc contributes to the normal metabolism of macronutrients and fatty acids. Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) contributes to normal mental performance

After workout:

1.Iso Whey Zero protein: A post-workout protein shake is essential for recovery, to supply your muscles with amino acids. Due to the fast absorption of Iso Whey Zero, your starved muscles will get an instant supply of nutrients at the end of your workout. This will help you maintain your muscles during workout, a diet and your everyday life. You don't only need more protein during a diet; also if you regularly do sports, when you want to increase your muscle mass or as you get older.  A quick, convenient and highly effective way to supplement your protein intake is to drink protein supplements; all you need is protein powder, a shaker and some water or milk. Protein also makes a great ingredient of sweet snacks, either used for cakes or as a cream.

2.Zero Bar: there's a solution to take in protein after workout even when you’re too busy to bother with a shake. If you consider high-quality protein intake important – because you do sports, you want to increase your muscle mass or you want to lose weight –, you can do it quickly and conveniently with BioTechUSA’s Zero Bar protein bar, as protein contributes to growing and maintaining muscle mass, as well as to maintaining normal bones.  The product contains added vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative stress. Besides all of its benefits, Zero Bar also makes a perfect snack! Its high protein and low carbohydrate content makes it attractive to those on a diet, since in order to lose weight, you need to take in proteins in adequate amounts and quality. Unlike other protein bars, it’s not covered with a coating that contains unnecessary calories; in return, it has crunchy protein textures.

3.HCA: You drink your shake right after workout and hurry home or to your business, but it's important to have some solid food within an hour, too. And with that, you should also take your HCA capsules not long after your shake. HCA (hydroxycitric acid) is the extract of Garcinia Cambogia, which blocks the functioning of the enzyme responsible for transforming carbohydrates into fat. Thus, you can further decrease the amount of fats depositing, because you body won't store them from your food.

Top 3 habits: what else to do besides taking your dietary supplements

Dietary supplements are called so because they only supplement conscious and appropriate nutrition. And without that, your diet won't be effective. But what else do you need to make a 30-day programme really successful?

1. Conscious eating habits: Reduce your carbohydrate and fat intake and increase your protein intake. It means you should eat a lot of vegetables for a side dish, grilled, roasted or simmered. FoConscious eating habits: Reduce your carbohydrate and fat intake and increase your protein intake. It means you should eat a lot of vegetables for a side dish, grilled, roasted or simmered. Forget about bread, rice, pasta, pastries and cookies. Eat a lot of poultry, egg white, maybe low-fat cottage cheese. Have a meal every 3-4 hours and drink at least 2.5 litres of sugar-free, uncarbonated liquid a day.

2. Training: You'll have a hard time without physical exercise, as working your muscles is one of the most energy-consuming activities, and thus the one that can burn the most fat off of you. Do aerobic exercise for about 40 minutes at least three times a week. Complete that with at least three strength training sessions to get a toned and tight body by the end of your diet.

3. Rest: One of the key criteria of recovery is to get an adequate amount of rest. Stress and sleep deficit induce hormonal processes which are clearly and significantly detrimental to your efforts put into losing weight, and they will make it harder, too, as you'll be tired and your appetite will also be increased. Try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every day.

If you want to make the process of getting ripped and losing weight easier, and if you want to close the 30-day period of your diet with toned muscles and a healthy look, you may want to consider using dietary supplements. Boost yourself despite the energy shortage, reduce your voracious appetite when hunger strikes, and supply your body with the necessary nutrients quickly and conveniently with dietary supplements. But don't forget: you'll also need a healthy diet and physical exercise!
