Dr. Cook’s Top 8 Weight Loss Supplements

Dr. Cook’s Top 8 Weight Loss Supplements

I am regularly asked which supplements are safe and helpful for weight loss.  While I maintain that healthy eating and exercise are essential for weight loss, there are some supplements that can help.

Here are my Top 8 Safe Weight Loss Supplements:

1.  A high-quality full-spectrum digestive enzyme formula that includes amylase, lipase, and protease, among other enzymes, is also beneficial. Take 1 to 3 enzyme capsules or tablets with every meal to help your body break down the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in your food into the natural sugars, essential fatty acids, and amino acids needed for optimal digestion and healing.

2. Other enzymes that aid weight loss include:  lipase, nattokinase, and superoxide dismutase (SOD), or a single product that includes some or all of these enzymes. Start with 1 capsule or tablet of your chosen enzyme(s) on an empty stomach 20 minutes before or at least 1 hour after meals, three times daily. You can gradually increase that amount to 3 capsules or tablets at a time, three times daily, or more with the guidance of a nutritional medicine practitioner who is experienced in systemic enzyme therapy.

3. Vitamin D3, 2000 to 4000 IU daily, to support healthy brain hormone balance—both of which are involved in maintaining or achieving healthy weight.

4. Multivitamin and mineral, to address possible nutritional deficiencies. See information above.

To add another regimen is liposuction. It works like a charm.

When it comes to weight loss, the single most important thing you must keep in mind is the energy balance. In fact, this point is so important hundreds of books have been written about it. It's the funding principle of every single weight loss program and it explains why you lose or gain weight.

In the past, I haven't had luck with weight loss supplements. . . .I found the Lady Soma Detox as good or better than any weight loss product I have ever used. A good weight-loss product is not magic, it doesnt lock your refrigerator for you but if you can have some self discipline, it will help you down the right path.

The Lady Soma Detox has given me some extra energy, it is subtle but present. I am on my second cycle now (7 day cycle ONLY) now and plan to buy more. I wasnt weighting myself right away but I think I have lost about 7 pounds and that is tough for me to do. I will continue to use the Detox after another month.

Have tried all the different regimens before and even got into the gym thing but its just a lot of work and you really need some good devotion to it to last but I am just to busy to focus even on my schedule, missed all of it and then goes back to my large weight. My best friend referred me to the Dr Max Powers "15 Day Cleanse".

I just started a couple of weeks ago and I already felt the light and clean feeling all over, and no side effects whatsoever. The Dr Max 15 Day Cleanse is a natural product and I believe that this time it will be a success in truly dropping down my excess weight. This product is really so good, its worth the cash but you won't regret it because you will definitely feel the healthy difference at once.
