No individual can get reslts unless they follow a proper nutrition plan. Proper eating allows for consistent energy levels and an increased metabolic rate which helps burn fat.
I believe you should always start with a healthy, balanced diet and then tweak the diet after a consistent eating pattern is established.
Depending upon individual goals and needs, an eating plan will be designed and coupled with a proper training regimen. It is only then that optimal results will occur.
Supplements are used as part of the overall nutrition plan to increase results.
