Food supplements to take for shredding
You want to lose fat while maintaining muscle mass. Nutrimuscle explains how suitable food supplements can help you achieve your goals.
The goal of the game if you want to have a successful cut is to burn more fat while preserving your muscles. To obtain optimal muscle definition, 3 major levers are at your disposal:
- Your diet
- Your physical activity
- Your supplement
A balanced diet
Regarding food, if you are in a shredding period, you must ensure that you maintain a certain balance between macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats).
It is recommended to increase your protein intake for a dry, because the latter helps eliminate fat by increasing the metabolism. Protein also has a thermogenic effect, meaning that by digesting it, it burns calories.
Generally, our diet is unbalanced, we eat too much omega 6 and not enough omega 3. However it does not mean we should wipe omega 6 off the map, rather try eating more foods rich in omega 3 (fatty fish, flaxseed oil, rapeseed oil, etc.) Lipids to be avoided, you already know them (fast food, processed products, crisps, etc.)
Choose quality carbohydrates with a low glycemic index to distribute your insulin levels correctly throughout the day.
Adapted physical activity
To optimize your cut, we recommend that you increase the frequency of your exercise rather than reducing your calorie intake. This will keep you the same strength during training and maintain muscle integrity, which will help you burn more calories. We recommend that you add "cardio" -type exercises to your training program to burn calories and to optimize the use of fat by the body.
Food supplements for shredding
There are several types of supplements to help you with your goals of cutting and to optimize the results of your workouts. Here is a guide to the supplements to choose for your shredding program.
Protein powders are ideal when it comes to losing weight and fat. Indeed, they allow you to burn more calories than other foods (such as carbohydrates), they increase fat burning by raising the metabolism, have a powerful appetite suppressant effect and they preserve muscle integrity thanks to their intake in amino acids.
Micellar Casein Isolate: Micellar casein, the solid part of milk, is a protein that is slowly absorbed and digested. It supplies the muscles with amino acids over a long period of time, which allows you to maintain high anabolism. Thus, you will optimize the combustion of your fats. We recommend that you take the casein isolate in the morning upon waking up to jumpstart your anabolism and to provide an appetite suppressant effect until your midday meal.
Total proteins contains 80% micellar casein and 20% whey. This protein allows you to stimulate your anabolism thanks to the whey + casein synergy and therefore optimize your muscle building while helping you in your weight loss.
Protimuscle: As with total protein, protimuscle combines the benefits of whey and casein in one protein. The difference is in the ratio, it is 50% whey for 50% casein for the protimuscle. This versatile protein helps you build muscle while helping you shed extra pounds. This is because protimuscle increases your level of fullness, which allows you to eat more space between meals and eat less during the following meal.
Milk & Egg Bio protein combines total protein and egg white protein. The diversity of protein sources (whey, casein and egg) provide an enlarged aminogram ideal for protecting your muscle mass. The appetite suppressant effect of eggs plus improved fat burning thanks to whey and casein make this protein a great addition to a dry diet.
Fat burners or "burners"
Fat burners are supplements that can help you speed up your fat burning and are therefore an attractive option to achieve your weight loss goals. There are several, it's up to you to choose the one that seems most suitable to you.
Fat Burner: This supplement combines two lipotropic agents, choline and inositol. These two active substances are fixed on your fats in order to eliminate them at the level of the liver. The fat burner can both optimize your cut and improve your performance in training, thanks to choline. You can take the fat burner during your meals and around your workouts.
Carnitine: This supplement can be referred to as the "fat burner amino acid". Carnitine helps increase the oxidation of your fat while boosting your energy metabolism. This supplement therefore helps you lose weight faster, recover better from training and fight fatigue. We recommend taking carnitine before training and with meals.
Natural Bio Burner: This supplement is a blend of two plants: yerba mate and green tea. Thanks to the synergy between these two plants, the natural bio burner allows you to increase your energy expenditure, to better control your appetite and to accelerate the combustion of your fats. In addition to these benefits, this supplement helps reduce fatigue associated with carrying out a low calorie diet. You can take the natural bio burner when you wake up and at noon. In some people, taking it in the evening allows better sleep in addition to burning fat at night.
Natural Bio Booster: this supplement combines the benefits of green tea and guarana. In the presence of the caffeine in guarana, the catechins in green tea are even more effective at burning fat. This supplement has the same benefits as the natural bio burner while providing a boost effect. You can take the natural bio booster in the morning and at noon, and 2 hours before a workout.
During a shredding, regulating your energy levels and protecting your digestive health are also factors for success. Modifying your carbohydrate intake and prioritizing quality carbohydrates is important to achieving your goals.
Sweet Potato: Sweet potato powder is an excellent source of carbohydrates with a low glycemic index. The high fiber content of sweet potato slows the absorption of carbohydrates and thus provides the body with energy over a longer period of time. Sweet potato also has beneficial effects on the health of the intestinal flora.
Nutri-Fibers: these dietary fibers provide a source of carbohydrates with a sustained release of energy as well as a very interesting appetite suppressant effect for a dry diet. They are great for those who want low calorie carbohydrates during training. Nutri-fibers also protect your intestinal flora.
Flakes (Oats, Buckwheat and Barley): Flakes have 3 great benefits. They are ideal sources of carbohydrate for normalizing your glucose and insulin levels, for keeping your digestive system healthy, and for providing energy for your workouts. You can take them in the morning with the casein isolate to give you a big feeling of fullness. It also allows you to replace bad carbs with quality carbs.
