In our last installment
we looked at which types of diet pills to use to jump start your weight loss and to bust a plateau.

Today we look at a very common scenario, the case of the over 35 individual who just can’t seem to lose weight period. Our question here is what diet pill is right for this scenario. Under this scenario, the first thing you need to understand is a diet pill is one of the LAST things you resort to, not the first.

For many people, what age related physiological changes do is take the ease out of weight loss.  It’s common to hear individuals over 35 talk about how they easily lost weight in their 20’s with just a simple dietary change.

With age, what you don’t have are easy results. Generally, you have to focus on several things at once and do them correctly to get the same results you did when you were younger with just a simple dietary mod or basic exercise.

I say this because it’s become vogue to medicate over 35 weight loss with thyroid treatments. Thyroid has become the easy target. While this is not incorrect, since it’s not uncommon for thyroid T4 to T3 output to diminish with age, it does not necessarily mean that going right for the thyroid aid is the first and only thing you should shoot for. 

You will have better and longer lasting results by first going through a checklist of items and trying those before reaching for a thyroid supplement. There are some very powerful ones out there. We carry 2 in our store, but you need to think of those as the big guns. The issue is not do these things work. Hell yes they work. They are quite powerful, which is why it’s better to run through a checklist of things first before resorting to these types of diet pills. Very often, a combination of protocols can yield good results before reaching for a thyroid diet pill.

For the sake of article length, I can’t go into all the different things I might have a person do to get the fat burning, but I can give you 3 very good things to focus on.  If these have no effect, then you may wish to give a good thyroid diet pill like Incinerate or t7 a shot. If these work and the fat loss gets rolling, then bleed them dry. Take them as far as you can, and then give
 Incinerate of some other thyroid diet pill a look.

Pre Diet Pill Measures:
Up your caloric intake for two weeks.
You read that correctly. Very often the thing you need most is not to cut your calories, but to give your base metabolic rate a kick in the pants. Here is how you would do this.

-Increase your caloric intake to 125% of your base BMR (the amount of calories you need to maintain your weight). Do the basics of at least 5 meals per day, no processed carbs, eat a lot of volume foods like vegetables. Shoot for 30 percent protein, 35 percent essential fats and 35 percent carbs.  If your BMR is 2000 calories per day, you would shoot for 2,500 per day. Our goal here is to increase your BMI. You have about a 12 to 14 day window where virtually none of the increase in caloric intake will go to fat.  At the end of 2 weeks, gut your calories to 100% of normal and ad some cardio. Don't do any cardio during this 2 week period of upping your metabolism. The combination of bringing your calories back to 100% of BMI and adding cardio will have a much better effect.

-Pre-cardio deplete. The problem most people have with cardio is they never actually get to burning any fat. It takes 20 to 25 minutes to get to burning fat. Most people log in 30 minutes on the treadmill and bounce having barely hit the fat. Here is how we can ignite your cardio. First, don’t eat for at least 2 to 3 hours prior to cardio. 20 minutes before cardio, supplement with 2 grams of L-Carnitine, 30 mg of Coq10 and 5 grams of L-glutamine and branch chain aminos. This will help preserve muscle and burn fat. Before you step on the treadmill, find a leg press machine, or if you are at home, you can get use a chair for an assisted squat. Our goal here is to blow out all of the glycogen in your legs prior to doing any cardio. A leg press is best, but the at home method will work as well. Do 3 to 5 sets of let presses for high reps of 15 to 20. You should be dead around rep 20. This will exhaust most of your bodies glycogen stores at a much faster rate than 7 minutes on the treadmill.  Now you are ready for your 30 minutes of cardio. You will jump into fat burning a good 15 to 20 minutes faster this way.  After cardio, take 5 more grams of glutamine and wait 30 to 45 minutes before eating.

-Get in 1 Yoga class per week. Stress makes you eat more and makes fat burning difficult due to elevated cortisol. High stress levels are common for us over 35. You need some purposeful de-stressing and circulation. A good yoga class will help a great deal to lower cortisol, which makes fat burning prohibitive. Get in 1 or 2 classes per week in conjunction with your diet and cardio and you will go a good length toward the issues of stress that make fat burning difficult.

Okay, if none of the above got you anywhere, then I would say a tool like Incinerate or L7 is a logical step. You don’t want to live on a thyroid diet pill. You really want to give it 3 weeks to a month and see if you begin to see results.
