More people are fighting an ever expanding waistline, and it only gets worse the older you get. You’ve tried diets and doing cardio, but you don’t make much progress, so you are now thinking about using a fat burning pill.
There is much controversy out there regarding whether these pills work. Every year new miracle ingredients show up in the news and on television shows. Sometimes there are even tv audience members that act as guinea pigs. And they take the supplement for a set amount of time to test if it works, then come live on the show for everyone to see their results. Sometimes the “testers” lose weight too which makes it very tempting for you to go right ahead and order it online or run out to the store to buy it.
There may be some actual science behind why certain ingredients work. Before jumping to the easy solution, do some research and know what you are taking. Check out the science, all the ingredients and how they are supposed to help you burn fat.
Many of these supplements will say they work best if taken as part of a healthy diet and or adding to your current exercise regime. One of the best ways to burn fat is total body exercise workouts. You are forced to work against your weight and will often be using muscles in a more natural motion. At the start of the routine, you’ll be burning stored carbs mostly. As you continue, you will move to burning fat. Also, once you’re finished, your body will continue to burn fat post workout. Depending on the intensity of your workout, this afterburn can last for many hours even when you are just sitting down relaxing.
For those of you who want to try a fat burner, read up on whichever one you are choosing. Pills work differently for different people. Also, be sure to check the side effects. Some have mild side effects while others may be a bit more extreme. It is also a good idea to check with your doctor before taking anything new, especially if you are taking medication for other health issues.
