Burn off stubborn fat with CLA's and CoEnzyme Q10


The old song, “It don’t come easy” can apply to attempts to burn off stubborn body fat.  You run, you lift, you watch what you eat, yet some parts of your body persist in hanging onto fat deposits.

When you get stuck, you need a little extra help…and it’s available from Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and CoEnzyme Q10 (CQ10.)

CLA has been shown to: 

  • Increase metabolic rate
  • Decrease abdominal fat
  • Enhance muscle growth (muscles burn fat)
  • Lower cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Lower insulin resistance
  • Reduce food-induced allergic reactions
  • Enhance your immune system

CLAs are good fats that occur naturally in meat and dairy from wild game and grass-fed animals that are given fresh pastures to roam in.   Interestingly, when animals are penned in feed lots, even if they are grass-fed, CLA production immediately declines in the animal, as does the production of Omega 3 oils.

In addition to CLA’s fat burning benefit, a Finnish study showed that women who had the highest levels of CLA in their diet had a 60 percent lower risk of breast cancer than those with the lowest levels.

Switching from grain-fed to grass fed meat and dairy products lowers cancer risk and increases metabolic rate due to the CLA’s.  This applies to beef, lamb, cheese, milk, and more.

Grass-fed beef looks and taste slightly different—the fat is yellowish, while corn-fed beef fat is white, and the meat is a darker, denser red.  Cooking takes about a third to a fourth less time, too.

Coenzyme Q10 was discovered over thirty years ago by Dr. Karl Folkers, a biomedical scientist at the University of Texas in Austin.  Folkers discovered that Coenzyme Q10 helps to strengthen the heart muscle and energize the cardiovascular system in many heart patients.

Recently, CoQ10 has been found to be beneficial in treating diabetes (by increasing insulin sensitivity), periodontal disease (by fighting off bacteria that cause the disease), weight loss (essential in the burning of fat), and breast cancer.

Foods that are naturally high in CQ10 are:

  • Beef
  • Spinach
  • Sardines
  • Albacore tuna
  • Peanuts

If you can’t consume these foods daily, a great way to get your CoQ10 is to use Energy First CoQ10 capsules.

Gerry Morton, CEO of EnergyFirst, has these suggestions for burning body fat with CLA’s and CoQ10:

  1. Eat at least one serving of grass-fed beef, milk, or cheese from a free-roaming farm or hunted animal such as deer a couple of times a week.
  2. Eat a spinach salad with albacore tuna and raw nuts in it every couple of days. 
  3. If this is too inconvenient, take two to three Energy First CLA soft-gels along with an EnergyFirst CoQ10 capsule once a day.
