Diet Supplement Combats Obesity

CBC News is reporting that a dietary supplement, called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), helps to combat weight gain in overweight adults.

CLA is a type of polyunsaturated fat that is found naturally in dairy products and meat. The study showed that participants lost an average of 2.2 pounds (over 6-months). What's more? They lost fat over the abdomen, which is the fat that increases the risk for heart disease.

While mixed CLA supplements are available in pharmacies and health-food stores, dietitians caution against expecting that the pill alone will lead to weight loss without increasing your physical activity and healthy food intake. An alternative to taking CLA supplements is by getting the fatty acids from foods such as low-fat dairy products.
