In studies that support the use of CLA in a weight loss program, the amount of CLA used varies from 1.7 to 12 grams per day. Those studies included:
A study that showed a dose of 3.4 g CLA per day for 12 weeks seems to be sufficient to reduce body fat mass (BFM) significantly in overweight humans.111
Another study on human subjects that showed 3.2 g per day of CLA increased lean body mass over a 12 week period.112
A six-month study on healthy or overweight adults showed CLA decreased body fat mass in specific regions of the body for all participants.114
Another six-month study on healthy overweight people showed that supplementation with CLA prevented weight gain during the holiday season.116 Modest loss in fat mass has been shown using 3.2 grams per day of CLA.117
