vitamin d & weight lossWant MORE muscle mass and an acceleration of FAT LOSS when dieting down?

Who doesn’t!?

Well there’s more great news for those of us supplementing with vitamin D. And more reason for those of you who aren’t to start right away!

Vitamin D & Weight Loss

A previous Spanish study [1] suggested that higher vitamin D concentrations leads to more actual body fat lost while preserving lean tissue on a calorie restricted diet.

Now an Iranian study [2] seems to back this up.

72 women took 1000 IU of vitamin D3 per day for 12 weeks. They consumed just less than maintenance energy requirements in order to create a calorie deficit.

At they end they had lost an average of 6lbs of fat and had gained 4lbs of lean mass.

While more research is needed on this, it does support previous rat studies in which favorable changes in body composition were observed.

Remember that vitamin D is actually a hormone that regulates about 3% of our genes.

You already SHOULD be supplementing with vitamin D for your health. You won’t regret it, especially if you’re not lucky enough to live in a country that gets a lot of sunshine.

Most experts in the field (and also from this page on Dr. Mercola’s website) recommended a dosage of 5000 IU (international units) per day.

Living in Ireland I take 10,000 IU per day, which I would recommend for everyone in this part of the world. You specifically need to get ‘Vitamin D3 as Cholecalciferol’ capsules.

I take: Healthy Origins Vitamin D3. You get 360 capsules for $24.64, which is less than 25 bucks for a whole year’s supply!

At MyProtein UK they stock it too here. They only sell 2500 IU capsules, but it’s a very cheap way to start supplementing and see what you think – £8.29.

Please bear in mind that vitamin is not some wonder pill. The subjects in these studies were in a calorie deficit. But the real desired outcome when cutting is to improve your BODY COMPOSITION, not merely losing weight.

You want to preserve your hard-earned muscle gains (if not gain some muscle) while torching the unsightly blubber that’s destroying your muscle definition.

My program Total Six Pack Abs will get you there faster than anything else on the market. And do it while radically improving your actual body composition. I would now recommend you supplement with vitamin D while on the program to really bolster (if not accelerate) your results.

Train With Intensity!
