Which Lipo-6 is for you?

November 1, 2016

When I first started with Nutrex 2 years ago and saw the Lipo-6 lineup, my exact words were…

Woah… o_O why so many?

So if I was confused… I am sure everyone else is as well so let’s clear this up! 🙂

The first LIPO-6 was first released in 2005 in the classic red and white bottle and contains 120 liquid capsules.

Why was this particular one so popular that it was voted ‘Fat-Loss Support Product of the Year’ in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008?

  • It was the world’s first liquid capsule diet pill. Why a liquid capsule? Simply for faster and complete absorption.
  • It is an all natural vegetable capsules, which are completely devoid of any animal derived gelatin materials.
  • It contains Guggulsterones, which stimulate your thyroid to produce more thyroid hormones which in turn will raise your metabolic rate and burn more fat.

LIPO-6 STIM FREE

I love the Stim-Free version simply because it has no stimulants! Instead of caffeine, there is L-Carnitine and Chromium Picolinate.

L-Carnitine is one of my holy grails when it comes to sports supplements because it helps convert fat into energy! ^_^

Chromium Picolinate helps control our blood sugar levels. By controlling blood sugar levels, we reduce storing ingested carbohydrates as fats as well as reducing sugar/carbohydrate cravings. Hooray!

This can also be taken in the evening or before bed to induce more calorie burn during your sleep OR to cycle off your current stimulant based Lipo-6 to reduce stimulant build up, but want to still have a fat burning effect during that time off.

LIPO-6X

LIPO-6X is one sexy fat burner. Why? Because it is a MULTI-PHASE fat burner! What does that mean? It is a fat burner that has multiple release phases both fast and extended.

Phase #1 Rapid Release Liquid Capsule:

The outer liquid capsule is where the capsule starts releasing its appetite suppressing, fat-burning and energy-production ingredients.

Phase #2 Extended-Release Inside Capsule:

The second capsule that sits inside the liquid capsule continues to work over an extended period of time to continue burning fat and more energy!

So taking a look at the label, the main differences in this pill vs the original Lipo-6 & Stim Free is Lipo-6X has more caffeine components and no Guggulsterones.

This concludes the BASIX SERIES:

Lipo-6, Lipo-6 Stim Free, and Lipo-6X. 

Up Next: BLACK SERIES

Lipo-6 Black, Lipo-6 Black Hers, Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate, Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate Hers, Lipo-6RX

I like to recommend the BLACK SERIES to those that have taken a fat burner before and want a little more of a kick.

LIPO-6 BLACK

  • Bacognize: Cognitive function! Helps with memory, focus and attention.
  • Advantra Z Citrus Aurantium: Increases energy, metabolism, and suppresses appetite.
  • Vinpocetine: Improves blood flow to the brain, enhances memory, reduces headaches
  • Zingerone: Potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, appetite stimulant, radiation protective, and antimicrobial.
  • Yohimbine HCL: increases adrenaline levels in the body, as well as inhibiting a regulatory process in fat cells, which normally suppresses fat burning.
  • Caffeine Anhydrous: 220mg per 3 pills

LIPO-6 BLACK HERS

Same as the Lipo-6 Black! Only difference is the added Vitamin D, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Calcium for iron and bone support.

LIPO-6 BLACK ULTRA CONCENTRATE

  • One pill serving liquid capsule
  • Caffeine Anhydrous: Energy
  • Theobromine Anhydrous: Ingredient found in chocolate! Is a stimulant, can work as a diuretic, has vasodilatation properties, can work as an aphrodisiac
  • Advantra Z Citrus Aurantium: Increases energy, metabolism, and suppresses appetite.
  • Yohimbine HCL: Increases adrenaline levels in the body, as well as inhibiting a regulatory process in fat cells, which normally suppresses fat burning.
  • Rauwolscine: Similar to yohimbine. Increases epinephrine levels, which is better for fat burning vs norepinephrine which normal yohimbine increases.

LIPO-6 BLACK ULTRA CONCENTRATE HERS

lipo6blkhersucboxleft

Same as Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate + added Folic Acid & Vitamin B12

LIPO-6RX

  • One pill serving liquid capsule
  • DMAE Bitartrate: Nootropic, increases brainpower such as, memory function, mental adaptability, concentration, brain cell health and better analytical processing skills.
  • Has 100mg of TeaCrine, a caffeine our body doesn’t become immune to. We can keep using it and it will always be new and exciting for our body. TeaCrine helps enhance mental clarity and focus without the crash you find with other stimulant.
  • Dicaffeine Malate is a sustained release caffeine source. Meaning, the effects of caffeine will last longer and be smoother than just caffeine alone.
  • Contains Ginger Root. Ginger root targets the stubborn visceral fat around the abdominal region by working as a thermogenic and also takes the ease off our stomach.

So to conclude the differences between each Lipo:

Lipo-6: The award winning, first liquid capsule fat burner with thyroid support.

Beginners

Lipo-6 Stim Free: Similar to Lipo-6 but without the stimulants. Great for those who don’t like stimulants or want a night time fat burner and/or cycling off.

Beginners

Lipo-6X: Multiphase fat burner.

Intermediate

Lipo-6 Black: For those that want something more advanced than the OG Lipo-6. Can start with one pill and work your way up to 3.

Intermediate

Lipo-6 Black Hers: Same as above with added vitamins for iron and bone support.

Intermediate

Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate: Extreme energy

Advanced

Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate Hers: Same as above but with added Folic Acid & Vitamin B12.

Advanced

Lipo-6RX: The newest fully disclosed Lipo-6 with TeaCrine for a sustained energy fat burner.

THE BEST Paleo, Keto, High Protein, Vegan, Low Carb, Gluten Free Bakery

May 31, 2016

You guys ever get those days where all you want to do is EAT SUGAR? Ummmmm… stupid question right? Who doesn’t want to eat sweets 24/7 without putting on that extra weight?

Well a couple days ago after a long day of work, I didn’t want anything to eat but a big piece of chocolate cake, which is weird because I typically want a full savory meal since it’s typically around dinner time.

When I got home, I checked my mail. As I am opening the mailbox I see a white box. My eyes lit up because that typically means it’s a goodie package with something other than a bill! It was from…

A-Fit Bake Shop.

Say wha?!?! Talk about PERFECT TIMING!!!

I took the box out of the mailbox and smelled peanut butter immediately. My eyes lit up even bigger! 0_0 I hurried upstairs and tore the box open.

As I was opening the box, I see two items. The first one I opened were the Purest Peanut Butter and Honey Cookies. I immediately shoved one into my mouth.

MMMmmmmmm!!!! Peanut Butter!!!

What I loved about it was it wasn’t too sweet. It felt light and airy with just the right amount of peanut butter. I can tell it was made from natural peanut butter because it didn’t taste ‘thick.” If you don’t know the difference between all natural peanut butter before vs regular peanut butter, I highly recommend buying both just so you know the difference, because there is a difference.

Regular peanut butter typically has added “oils” or some type of “sweetener” with a few other ingredients. Natural peanut butter has 2 ingredients. “Peanuts” and “Salt.”

Next up were the Protein Peanut Butter Brownies.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Wow is all I can say. It was pure joy in my mouth. 

I couldn’t even tell these were “healthy.” It was so good I swear I was at The Cheesecake Factory eating their “Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake,” which by the way has 2,500 calories and 85g of saturated fat per 3/4 lb according to consumerist.com!

What I really loved about this package was Alyssa Monique Lemus, the founder and baker, provided me with a sheet with all the macronutrients and ingredients.

Protein Peanut Butter Brownies 

Ingredients: Natural peanut butter, organic honey, pea protein, egg whites, dark cocoa, baking soda

Nutrition Per 1 square: 150 calories, 8g fat, 15g carbohydrate, 1g fiber 5g protein

Purest Peanut Butter and Honey Cookies 

Ingredients: Natural peanut butter, organic honey, oats, egg whites baking soda

Nutrition Per 1 cookie: 112 calories, 7g fat, 8g carbohydrates, 1g fiber, 4g protein

That day I ate a total of 2 Protein Peanut Butter Brownies and 1 Purest Peanut Butter and Honey Cookie. I then went to the gym and had a super duper leg session! These healthy treats satisfied my sweet tooth and fueled me for my workout with no guilt!

Highly recommended. Thank you Alyssa!

P.S. She now ships! She also has paleo, ketogenic, high protein, vegan, low carb, gluten free options for those that have food sensitives or on a specific diet, hence the heading 😉

New Goals

January 10, 2015

With only 10 days into the New Year, I can’t help but feel like I need to DO MORE.

This last week has been nothing but amazing. I got back in the fitness industry. (I went through a 4 month non-compete period when I resigned from my old company last August so I wasn’t allowed to do anything in the fitness/supplement world until Jan 1, 2015). But the wait was SOOOO worth it!!! I am so happy with my supplement company Nutrex Research, Inc. Read more about it here.

I am doing what I LOVE.

I love teaching/educating. Believe it or not, I use to be a 3rd grade teacher lol ^_^. So what is it that I do with Nutrex? I manage half the West Coast (California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington). I educate business owners, consumers and make sure supplement stores, gyms, etc. are stocked with Nutrex products. I also make sure supplement users understand what they are putting into their bodies. Everyone is different and just like food, one ingredient may work for you but may not work for the other. In order to determine that, I like to find out what your goals are first and from there I will find the right supplements for YOU. But of course, before I even recommend supplements, whole foods is the way to go. You cannot lose weight by taking supplements. You lose weight by proper exercise and nutrition. Supplements are here to…

add further nutritional value to (supplement) the diet.

To be honest, so many people are lazy nowadays and they don’t take the time to read anymore or research. When I first started my fitness journey back in 2010, I had no clue what I was doing. But how did I learn?

Google and YouTube.

I think a lot of people forget that this tool is the most amazing thing ever! It is free education. With social media growing tremendously these days, you never know what actually is the truth. In order to find out, you do your own damn research lol 😉 I also love bloggers! Here are my a few of my favs!

Healthful Pursuit

Leanne is the sweetest person ever and comes up with the most amazing recipes! She’s been through it all and has a recipe for any type of food sensitivity.

The Skinny Confidential

A lifestyle blog. Pure FUN! Lauryn is so gorgeous and her writing style is unique. She makes you want to keep reading. You’ll see…

PumpUp Daily

I love PumpUp Daily because every blogger on this page is just like US. Normal human beings with a goal and a vision… a vision to be better.

My goal this year is to help you guys grow as a person and to be happy with the body you were given. With so many coaches/teams out there nowadays, and the competitive world growing, it gets overwhelming. I know. I’ve been there. I’ve made mistakes. But the key is to not let that drag you down.

Appreciate every experience because this is how we grow. Find what makes you happy. If you want to eat that donut, do it. Just make sure you burn it off. How? Just…

Be Active.

Find out what you physically like to do. I love aerial fitness, running, spinning, and throwing heavy weights around in the gym ;). You don’t have to be inside a gym to accomplish your goals. Hiking is amazing too! If you have a hard time looking for new activities use Yelp. I think I use yelp as much as I use google lol.

My top 5 goals for 2015 are:

1) Build my brand

2) Start Vlogging

3) Takeover the West Coast with Nutrex

4) Turn IFBB Pro

5) Travel International

What are your goals?

Xo,

Sandy Lieu
