Your only way out to get rid of the fat suit you put on your body is by doing an intensive training and following an intensive weight-loss plan. However a well formulated fat-burner will help boost the results of losing weight, a fat burner should be your companion throughout your weight loss journey.
What’s a fat burner?
A fat burner helps increase your metabolic rate, which is the rate at which our body burns calories. One way of achieving this is through the course of thermogenesis. The thermogenesis process of the body is directly related to the metabolic rate. When the core temperature of the body is increased the metabolism is stimulated. Also it’s really effective at boosting energy, suppressing appetite, and blocking carbohydrate and fat absorption
You reap what you sow
The famous quote says all about it, there are no magic pills. A fat burner with poor nutrition and a lack of training will do you no good. You can’t depend on fat burners alone; it’s like a relationship between you two. A fat burner will never make you lose weight without training hard. I think fat burner packs should be labeled with help me-help you.
Make the most out of it
One of the main characteristics of fat burners is that they suppress your appetite, so why don’t you make use of it and take your fat burner 30 minutes prior to breakfast and lunch. If you don’t work out in the evening or you prefer a stimulant-free product, then take a dose 30 minutes before dinner. This will not only ensure you feel satiated after meals, but will also help to increase your metabolism.
When you’re on a fat burner you tend to sweat more than the normal person. This why; you should drink more water to hydrate your body. It’s not only about hydration but also it helps elevate your metabolism. Drinking 3-4 liters of water daily is recommended if you’re aiming for the best results, also it is recommended to drink at least 250 ml of water with each dose to ensure optimal absorption.
Cycle your fat burner
The body becomes desensitized to some ingredients over time, and this is exactly what happens with stimulant-based supplements. Furthermore, overuse of stimulants can lead to high levels of cortisol (that unwanted hormone that breaks down muscle and causes fat storage), especially under the stress of dieting. To avoid these counterproductive effects, you should cycle on stimulant-based supplements for 3-4 weeks and then take two weeks off. Use a stimulant-free product for the next two weeks between cycles.
The best way to know if you need to cycle your fat burners is by assessing how you feel when you’re on them. If after several weeks you find that you no longer get the results you used to from a regular dose, then it’s time to take a break from the product.
Sleep well don’t sleep on losing fat
Sleep is necessary for repair, recovery, and hormonal balance. You need to get eight hours of deep sleep at night.
How to choose the right fat burner for you?
It’s never an easy task to find the fat burner that suits you best especially with the dozens of products in the market. However, there are some general guidelines that can help. Fat burners generally fall into two broad categories: Stimulant-based and stimulant-free.
Stimulant-free formulations are ideal for those who are sensitive to ingredients with stimulant effects like caffeine, synephrine, tyramine, and yohimbine (or yohimbe). In the stimulant-free realm, look for products containing fat-burning green tea extract (standardized for epigallocatechin gallate or ECGC) and acetyl-L-carnitine, and appetite-suppressing ingredients like caralluma fimbriata extract, or phaseolus vulgaris (white kidney bean), and cynara scolymus (artichoke) extract
Stimulant-based fat burners will contain a combination of one or more of the following: caffeine, synephrine, tyramine, and yohimbe. These ingredients aim to increase energy, suppress appetite, and increase fat release from fat cells (to be burned as energy). You’ll also likely find ingredients common to stimulant-free formulations in this class of fat burners.
