Hey, guys, Dr. Axe here. I’m going to be talking about how to lose weight and burn fat today and the topic is CLA that’s conjugated linoleic acid. It’s a sort of fatty acid that’s been shown to help burn up fat cells in your body. If you’re looking to really burn body fat and get some weight off right here for the New Year’s, you’re going to want to consume high amounts of CLA. In fact, CLA is one of the number one compounds or supplements today. If you go into your local health food store,.
You’ll see CLA all over the shelves because there’s so much research showing that it helps your body burn fat and lose weight. In fact, there are over 35 clinical medical studies showing that if you consume CLA, your body will burn fat and lose weight. Now I do want to mention this. Rather than taking in pill or supplement form, the best form is in its food form, in its raw form like you’re going to find CLA in large amounts in raw dairy and in grassfed meat and in.
Pasteurized cheese. Now I want to mention this. CLA, when you get it from, let’s say something like grainfed beef, you’re only getting anywhere from 0 milligrams to 20 milligrams. So if you’re eating conventional beef that’s been fed grain or even organic beef that’s been fed grains, you’re getting virtually no CLA. However, if you’re eating grassfed or a cow that’s fed grass 100 of the year, you’re going to be getting 300 to 500 more CLA, anywhere from probably 250 to 500 milligrams and things like raw cheese and grassfed beef.
Burn Fat with CLA
Now for years I’ve heard things from people saying red meat is bad or most dairy is bad. Yeah, red meat and dairy can be bad if it’s conventional. But if your cheese is raw and pasturefed, comes from a pasture fed cow, and if the beef has been fed grass, it has high amounts of CLA. Again, one of the number one compounds to help your body burn fat and lose weight. So I recommend if you want to get the great impact here of CLA doing about one ounce of raw cheese daily.
Now remember this. It can’t be just be raw cheese. You need to know that it’s fed grass during the year, and typically most higher quality cheese will have that. Also, if you go to a place like Whole Foods you can look for lamb cheese and cheap cheese. My favorite brand of raw cheese, though, is from a company called Beyond Organic. We have links here on the website. My friend Jordan Rubin is founder of the company. But we know that these cows are fed grass 100 a year, so it will have the largest amounts of CLA in it for.
Helping your body burn fat. Again, getting grassfed beef is good and doing it certified organic. There are companies like Beyond Organic that do it where it’s fed grass 100 of the year. So when you’re buying grassfed, you want to look for on the label to say 100 grassfed. That way, you get higher levels of CLA. So again, if you’re eating conventional grainfed beef, you’re getting almost zero CLA. If you’re doing grassfed beef and raw pasturefed cheeses like this, you’re getting probably 250 to 500 milligrams of CLA that’s going to help promote fat loss.
We’ve got some of this raw cheese here. The other thing I love about this is it’s delicious. And if you want to get double the effects, got a quick recipe for you, do a grassfed cheddar burger. This is actually what I did last night for dinner, sauted up, actually cooked up some grassfed beef and topped it off with a bunch of raw cheddar. It’s absolutely delicious. Again, you’d think, Well, burger, that’s going to cause me to gain weight. No, if you’re doing a grassfed cheese and beef, it’s going to help your body burn fat.
And lose weight. This is just one of the health tips, eating more CLA I’m going to have for you this month in terms of weight loss, so be watching that upcoming tutorials and be checking for articles on more tips to burn fat and lose weight fast.
