Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a fatty acid supplement that effectively increases lean muscle mass and enhances fat loss. In a 90-day, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study published in 2000 in the Journal of Nutrition, CLA users experienced fat loss with an average weight reduction of seven pounds and an increase in lean muscle. There was a 20% decrease in body fat. CLA also stops fat from coming back once dieting stops, research has found. According to The Journal of International Medical Research in 2001, those taking CLA who also exercise at the same time increase fat loss and increase lean muscle faster and with lower amounts of CLA. Incredibly, CLA has also been found to help with weight loss even if people don't change their lifestyle. In June 2009, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported on 45 postmenopausal women who were obese and who had type 2 diabetes. They took eight grams (8,000mg) of CLA per day with food for 32 weeks. The women were told not to diet or exercise any differently during the trial. The researchers found that CLA significantly reduced the women's body mass index (BMI) and resulted in a four-pound weight loss.
