The first day of your new diet was a cakewalk, I know.

The second day you were introduced to a side that you never knew existed, a more carnal side of yourself – you awakened the hungry animal within. The third day you awake in awe that no one was hurt yesterday, and soon realize that you don’t even have enough umph! to get your pants on today.

Does this all sound familiar?

If you want to make your next diet experience less of a battle, and more of an adventure to find out which ingredients work best for losing weight in your body, then you may wish to consider adding vitamins and antioxidants to your diet – lots of vitamins and antioxidants.

Vitamin D

Many studies have shown that adequate vitamin D consumption is necessary to lose weight.

B Complex Vitamins

There are eight vitamins under this umbrella. They are required for you to produce enzymes to break down fat, carbs and protein in your system.

Sources: Milk, eggs, legumes, whole grains, rice, chicken, bananas, green leafy vegetables

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3s are essential to weight loss because they allow our cells to function at their best.


CoQ10 helps you produce energy at the cellular level and subsequently boosts the metabolism. It is a potent antioxidant that also removes free radicals.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is critical for skin health and rejuvenation.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A increases collagen production and the creation of new cells, making it a must for your complexion.

Vitamin C

Besides many other benefits to taking lots of vitamin c, it also maintains skin elasticity and collagen.

Once you follow a diet plan that incorporates these vitamins into your daily menu, then you will not only lose weight faster, but also feel great and look healthy while getting rid of the extra weight.
