CLA otherwise know as Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been promoted as a weight loss supplement for well over two decades, but does it even work? The jury is still out on this one.
Few studies have come back that say that CLA may promote slight weight loss, while other studies say that there isn’t enough statistical evidence to conclude that CLA yields any weight loss.
So, should you just take it and test it for yourself? In our professional opinion we don’t think you should take anything that isn’t necessary. With very little evidence of its effectiveness, we suggest you pass on the CLA and focus directly on caloric intake and expenditure for weight loss.
Weight loss supplements like certain stimulants and thermogenic agents only provide a slight, but scientifically proven, edge to your weight loss journey.
Start with the tried and true caloric deficit method first, then when you’re ready to kick it into high gear, try a fat burner.
