Supplements for Weight Management

Are you trying to lose weight and wondering how you can achieve your goals and stick to them long-term? Recent figures in the UK show that 28% of adults in England are obese with a further 36% being overweight.

For many individuals, effective weight loss can be achieved through changing eating habits, diet, exercise and other lifestyle factors.

Key Foods for Weight Management

Eating healthy, balanced diet combining good quality protein, healthy fats and fibre-rich carbohydrates can help maintain a healthy weight. Include these foods in your diet:

  • Oily fish: eating salmon, mackerel, sardines or herring two or three times a week is a great source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and help keep you feeling fuller for longer.
  • Brightly-coloured vegetables: aim for 7 portions of different coloured vegetables per day to provide fibre and flavonoids to help regulate metabolism.
  • Dark green leafy vegetables: rich in magnesium to support blood sugar levels, alongside many other key vitamins and minerals.
  • Fermented foods: sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, kefir and live yoghurt contain probiotics to promote a healthy gut and digestion to aid weight management.

Which Supplements Can Support Weight Management?

  1. Chromium
  2. Magnesium
  3. Probiotics
  4. Omega-3

Top Tips on Buying Supplements for Weight Management

  • Omega-3 supplements can be in the form of a fish oil, or if you are vegan or vegetarian, you can opt for omega-3 derived from algae oil.
  • Magnesium glycinate and magnesium citrate are the most bio-available forms of magnesium supplements.
