If you are participating in my Diabesity Challenge, you may be interested in supplements that help suppress appetite and facilitate weight loss. One of my favorites is hydroxycitric acid, or HCA. 

The Benefits of HCA Supplements HCA is an extract from Garcinia cambogia, a fruit native to India. An HCA supplement reduces hunger pangs, boosts energy and promotes fat burning. 

In addition, HCA supplements help keep blood sugar in the normal range during fasting so you won’t experience lightheadedness or irritable feelings that are common when blood sugar falls too low. 

As an added bonus, HCA supplements stimulate the activity of an enzyme that enables fat to be burned in the liver producing ketones, the backup energy source that keeps you going during a fast.

I recommend 2,000 mg of HCA supplement a day, prior to your morning exercise. HCA can be found in health-food stores, online or as part of a combination formula, such as Brindall Trim. 

I hope this information helps you as you continue your weight-loss journey. Have another great week and keep up with the program … it really works!
