Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy for the body to function. That energy in an item of food and drink is measured in calories and the amount of calories we burn each day is determined by food processing (thermogenesis) and physical activity.
Many of us are of the misconception that a slow metabolism is the cause of excess weight gain when in actual fact it is the amount we eat and drink coupled with our level of physical activity that ultimately determines your weight. GNC Total Lean Burn 60 is a powerful thermogenic supplement that has been clinically proven to boost metabolism and increase calorie burning by up to 60%. This is achieved by increasing the internal body temperature which increases your resting heart rate.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a group of chemicals found in omega-6 fatty acid Linoleic Acid. Omega-6 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that are necessary for human health. They cannot be made by the body and must therefore be obtained through food and supplementation. Primary sources include meat and dairy products.
CLA is a potent anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogen, anti-catabolite, as well as a powerful immune system enhancer. Current clinical research suggests that CLA has a number of benefits for any type of athlete.
These benefits include:
- increased metabolic rate
- enhanced muscle growth
- lowers cholesterol and triglycerides
- lowers insulin resistance
GNC Total Lean CLA
GNC Total Lean CLA delivers 2000mg of Conjugated Linoleic Acid per serving, a great complement to your current diet and weight management regime.
The intensity and the duration that you are able to put into your workout depends on how optimized your body is at using fat as a source of fuel. At GNC we have scientifically formulated a supplement that could boost fat oxidation and keep you exercising for longer.
GNC Total Lean Triple Strength Liquid L-Carnitine is a sugar free, ultra concentrated formula with 3000mg L-Carnitine.
L-Carnitine Chemical Structure
L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that plays a crucial role in the transportation of fatty acids into the mitochondria where it is metabolized to produce the energy currency of the cell known as ATP. That ATP in turn fuels your workouts.
These are 3 supplements that you will have to add to your summer supplement stack to reach your goals of a summer six pack.
