If you’re struggling with your weight, you have lots of company. In fact, 66 percent of all Americans are obese or overweight. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), approximately 50 million Americans will go on a diet this year.

While many of these individuals will successfully lose weight, only a small percentage will actually be able to keep their weight off long term.

So, how can you make sure you’re one of the lucky ones? Weight loss has to be your own decision and you need to pick a food and exercise plan that’s right for you. There’s no single right way to lose weight. While your spouse may enjoy hitting the gym and eating protein all day, that may not appeal to you. You may want to consider adding a weight loss supplement to your diet and exercise plan.

Here are the top 10 supplements that are used for weight loss support.


10. Hoodia



The hoodia gordonii plant found in the deserts of South Africa. Natives who chew on the leaves of this plant find it suppresses appetite.

9. CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)



Conjugated Linoleic Acid is an acid found in beef and dairy products. CLA increases energy expenditure and supports healthy muscle tissue. CLA can be a great addition to use with your workout plan.

8. Citrin



Citrin increases fat metabolism and oxidation and is involved in helping the body break down carbohydrates, fat and protein. Citrin also works to suppress appetite.

7. Chromium Picolinate



Chromium Picolinate is an important trace mineral that can help metabolize sugar and fat.

6. Chitosan



Chitosan is a natural fiber derived from crustacean shells. It binds to fat and encourages its elimination. It should not be used by individuals with a shellfish allergy.

5. Green tea extract



Green Tea Extract offers a host of health-enhancing benefits. Standardized green tea extract can also benefit metabolism and aid in fat burning.

4. Grapefruit pectin



Grapefruit Pectin is a good addition to your weight loss program because it creates a feeling of fullness. It’s also a good source of soluble fiber that can also help maintain health.

3. GTF Chromium



GTF Chromium supports efficient glucose metabolism and insulin production, which is key to digestion.

2. Oat extract



Oat Extract is a natural fiber that expands in your stomach, so you feel full and less likely to overindulge.

1. L-Carnitine



L-Carnitine is a unique amino acid that burns fatty acids and converts it to usable energy

You should always check with your health care practitioner before dieting or taking supplements if you have a health condition. And weight loss supplements don’t work unless used in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet and exercise plan. However, adding a supplement to your weight loss regimen may support your efforts and help you succeed.
