Jackie Warner Answers Question on Fat Burning and Weight Loss Supplements

Jackie Warner on Fat Burning and Weight Loss Supplements

I interviewed trainer Jackie Warner recently, and before we spoke I asked you all to submit questions for her. Sugar user LD fit was curious to know Jackie's take on weight loss and fat burning supplements like CLA.

Here's what Jackie had to say on the matter:

"I love certain supplements. There are some very safe supplements that don’t cause any harm to the body and you can take forever and I’ll give her a few. One is a branch change amino acids which are called ETAAs and they are the aminos that will help you with fat metabolism and then the other is glutamine, which is another amino acid. It is the only one to reach the blood stream barrier so it’s a very powerful one and the benefits to glutamine are numerous. Not just muscle building and weight loss but also a lot of studies have shown that it helps with memory and acuity. Then there is L-carnitine which is a good one to take — a major fat burner — and you can take it forever. These are all safe to take everyday, forever."

Jackie has more to say on the subject so keep on reading.

"And then what I like if you're actually trying to get more tone is take creatine and there is a new creatine you can take forever . . . I'm reading my bottle right now because I put it my shake . . . it’s called Cretatine Ethel Estro. And I'm all about taking fat burners that naturally occur in my body and that I can take forever safely, that aren’t going to change my brain, but change my body."

Do you take any of the supplements Jackie recommends?

What's a "Branch change amino acid"? I could've swore it was Branch CHAIN amino acid........ On another note, once i ahve this baby and am done breast feeding I plan on hopping myself up on all of the natural goodies.

I use glutamine to keep cravings at bay. It seems to work for that, but it definitely doesn't make me lose weight. Maybe it's helping me not put on weight?

I don't take any of those supplements, only because I think they're very pricey--I can get those amino acids from foods. And while I'm sure taking more of them sounds like it'd be a good thing, I'm a bit skeptical of taking too many supplements. The only real supplement I take is fish oil, only because I know I don't get enough of it in my diet every day.

She should offer food sources - b/c I am sure there are ways to get it from whole foods.

Considering that the last post including her statements displayed her poor understanding of metabolism, she's not a chemist or a doctor, and these substances certainly haven't been tested "every day, forever", I'm kind of disappointed by this post.
