30 Days Out Supplements
- Fat burner
- Whey protein
- Diuretic (optional)
Supplements play an important role in any cut or complete physical transformation. Too often, though, people don't understand how to supplement correctly. Many people take too many supplements to compensate for a lack of training intensity or a good nutrition program. Other people don't utilize enough supplements, or they don't know which products can help them.
Because 30 Days Out is pretty extreme in terms of diet and training, supplements are important for extra support. I don't think you need to bust your wallet buying supplements, but I do think there are some important basics that belong in your stack. I think these products are exactly what you need to look your best in 30 days.

Taking a multivitamin is an essential part of your supplement plan. Because we're cutting our calories pretty low during 30 Days Out, we run the risk of being deficient in some important nutrients. A multivitamin supplement ensures that your body is still getting the essential vitamins and minerals it needs to function optimally.* Even if you're not in a calorie deficit, a multivitamin is a great product to take every single day.
Multivitamins should contain most—if not all—the vitamins and minerals your body needs. In addition to key micronutrients, the Bodybuilding.com Foundation Series Multivitamin includes BCAAs to aid your recovery, and antioxidants and herbal extracts to support your performance and vitality.*
Fat burners contain a variety of ingredients-from caffeine to yohimbe to BCAAs that can help you get rid of unwanted fat while supporting muscle maintenance.* Fat burners can also increase your energy levels, your mental focus, and increase the speed of your metabolism, helping you burn more calories even when you're at rest.* Although your diet is the primary vehicle for weight loss, fat burners can help your body trim that last little bit.*
The 30 Days Out stack includes the non-stimulant fat-burner CLK. CLK is made with raspberry ketones. Raspberry ketones may support fat loss by helping your body to better utilize fatty-acids.* If you want the fat-burning help without the stimulant, CLK is a great choice. The other fat-burner in this stack is Super HD. Super HD may increase your energy, boost your metabolism, and even help you feel less hungry.*
There are 22 amino acids in the body, nine of which we must get through food. Of those nine, the branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine play a vital role in building muscle.* Because they are actually metabolized in the muscle, BCAAs can be used by your body to build new proteins.*
Supplementing with BCAAs, especially when you're watching how much you eat, can help your body get more muscle-building blocks without the added calories of whole food. Alpha Amino features an effective amino acid complex to promote muscular endurance and is a great sugar-free alternative that you can sip on throughout the day.*
Whey is a fast-absorbing protein that may help you increase your muscle mass, recover faster, and build strength.* A post-workout whey protein shake will deliver the necessary nutrients and a large quantity of BCAAs to your muscles when they are most ready to absorb them.
Although chicken and fish are also protein-rich, your body isn't able to digest and absorb that protein as quickly and efficiently as it does whey. And because we're eating so much protein to maintain our mass during this extreme cut, using a product like COR Whey will help you get those important grams of protein. COR Whey comes in a variety of delicious flavors and contains 25 grams of protein with just 1 gram of sugar per serving. The added digestive enzymes will help keep your digestive system functioning well.
Creatine can help improve your recovery rate, your muscular strength and endurance, and make your muscles appear fuller.* If you'd like to build more muscle and increase your performance in the gym, then a creatine supplement is an important piece of your stack.*
Cellucor's COR-Performance Creatine contains 5 grams of creatine monohydrate and a phosphate delivery system that supports absorption.* You can purchase the product unflavored so you can mix it into your post-workout whey protein shake.
I've added a diuretic to the last five days of this program. Because we're trying to get as lean as we can, a little extra help can go a long way. A diuretic can help flush out the excess water your body may be holding, leaving you more dry and vascular.* Diuretics aren't meant to be used all the time or for very long. Keep the dosage to twice per day and only during the last 5 days of the trainer.
Cellucor's L2 Extreme includes natural diuretics like prickly chaff flower extract, uva-ursi extract, and dandelion extract so you can shed water safely.* It also has the added bonus of ingredients like taurine, which promotes healthy metabolism, and folic acid for healthy energy levels.*
