The Paradox of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

The controversial Professor Earl Lawrence Mindell associated with FreeLife International believs that we are getting fatter because of our diet’s lack of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a lacking that is ironically caused by our obsession with dieting. Some scientists believe that in our quest to lose weight, we are not eating enough fat, or at least not the right kind of fat. (Source:

The good fat that is missing from our diets is conjugated linoleic acid or CLA. It is a natural substance found in red meat, lamb, and dairy products. CLA according to many studies can reduce fat and improve muscle mass in the body.

You wouldn’t lose any weight if all you did was take CLA as a supplement with no change in eating or exercise habits but it could help you lose fat. It is often taken by men looking to lose weight and build their bodies at the same time. However, it can also be useful for anyone who is overweight and not exercising enough to increase muscle mass, which will increase the metabolism and thus burn more calories.
