CLA for flat belly

As someone who works out on a regimented basis I am always looking to ensure I am adding all the proper supplements to my diet and exercise routine. Working with weights and cardio exercise can take a toll if you are not eating and or sleeping properly. Not to mention our foods do not always have the adequate amount of nutrition we need for a fully rounded diet. So I like to supplement in my diet, such as a good fish oil and daily multivitamin.

Recently I had read and heard about a supplement called CLA, for belly fat. Though I have a mommy tummy, my belly fat is not really a huge problem. Most is controlled by proper eating, laying off wine and maintaining my exercise routine. So I heard that CLA is great for belly fat, fat burning and maintaining muscle mass. So I opted to give it a whirl for 30 days to see if I noticed a difference. Here is what the company says about their product.

I’ve got to tell you that this is great marketing for those who are looking for a miracle pill. As someone who formerly sought out a miracle pill or fix….they do not exist. Apparently this little pill can help transform you into a lean physique.

Well then I would be a lean mofo after these last 30 days of upping my game at the gym, my clean diet and these pills.

In the real world, this is not the case. My experience is that lean muscle is through working out with weights and eating a clean and proper diet. For others, they might have different results, however for me I am seeing a great, steady transformation of my body through diet and exercise. Not a pill.

While I wanted to believe that all of this could be true I did do quite a bit of research about CLA, Conjugated Lineolic Acid, and I found that CLA is good for you like any other healthy fats like those from almonds, avocados, walnuts, and coconut oil. CLA is mostly found in products like meat and dairy, but in order to get a high enough dose to really see the effects you’d have to eat a lot of meat and drink a lot of milk to reap those rewards.

I am not saying that you may not notice results, however for someone like me who is already very active and eats a very clean and well balanced diet, this product was not something I would see results with. CLA could be compared to other healthy fats which help combat belly fat, which is contrary to popular belief. Your muscles need protein, water and healthy fats in order to perform, grow and recover. If you are looking to add a supplement like this to your diet, consult your physician and or dietician to see if this product is right for you. For me and the purpose of my review, this was not anything I noticed as providing energy or a lean physique or reduction in overall belly fat.

**I did receive this product for a reduced/free cost in exchange for an honest review.

    1. Right!? Sadly our entire culture is built upon “the cure” the “Quick fix” and never putting in the time and energy to make it work. I tell you, its not easy, but its well worth the investment of working hard.

  1. I had a very flat belly (even after having a chid) until I hit menopause. Then it all collected there. I lost the big (OK not huge) butt, things dropped and a pouch was there.
    There is no such thing as a magic pill..
    This might be good for someone who needs to be reminded to exercise aand eat right, and the ingredients do sound decent.

    1. I wish I had the flat belly after the twins….it was more like a poof afterwards. Now its lots of hard work, no wine and no goodies with the exception of every now and again. I do like the ingredients too but some of the research said some pretty horrendous things that made me question how good they really are in a pill form. Argggghhhh

  2. It sounded great until I got into your review. There are so many products such as this on the market and with so many you don’t really see or feel the change. Thank you so much for sharing this

  3. After menopause I also have a belly. I never had a belly before. It is so hard later in life to change your body. I know however, there are ways to increase your metabolism, but there is no magic pill.

  4. I have a belly now, but i never had one before it seems like my body is changing. no magic pills only eat right and exercise
