Thermogenic Fat Burners, For Weight Loss...

             Most fat burner supplements are thermogenics ... 

Let's break it down, thermo means heat, genesis means creation. Separate fact from fiction and you're well on your way to building a body that gets noticed. We're constantly trying to figure out the best workout, most effective eating program and quickest way to burn fat. Myths surrounding fat loss have been with us since the dawn of the fitness movement. If you still think there is a pill you can take so you can eat whatever you want and stay thin, then the multi-billion dollar supplement industry loves you. They would like you to believe that you can't lose enough fat unless you take some fat burners and diet pills. If you're reading this you've likely heard of Lipo 6, ThermoPro, Hydroxycut, Oxyellite Pro, Xenadrine, Metabolife, Thermo Lean and many many others (all known as thermogenics), which are the most popular type of fat burner supplements on the market today.

First truth you need to know, is that fat burners don't really burn fat. What they do is enhance the process that can aid in fat being used as fuel. Second thing to remember, is that not all fat burning products are free from side effects. Depending on the type of product, you may experience mild effects such as mood swings, irritability, or dizziness. The way this supplement works, is to increase your body's metabolism, which is your own internal fat burning engine. As your metabolism increases so does your body temperature and it takes fuel for this to happen. Stored body fat is the fuel that your body uses to keep the metabolism going through continuous moderate stress. That's the idea behind using fat burning supplements anyway. Temporary quick fixes won't help in the long run, since you are just handling the symptoms. Fat in the body is generally an indication of a complicated issue with several causes like poor nutrition, inactivity, unhealthy lifestyle or even stress.

Fat burning supplements do a couple of things that are conducive to weight loss. The first is the obvious increased metabolic rate that helps burn up excess fat deposits. The second is an increase in energy which leads to more physical activities or more intense exercise sessions which further burn more fat. Be advised that feeling jittery is a normal side effect of this supplement. Thermogenic compounds stimulate the central nervous system. Some have ingredients like caffeine or ephedrine or pseudo-ephedra whose metabolic interactions aren't that much different than cocaine. With any supplements and drugs if not used responsibly they can lead to abusive behavior. Whenever you over-stimulate the body, it will react by delaying your natural metabolism in order to balance itself. So when you discontinue using the stimulant, your metabolic rate will be very slow. So slow that you might even gain back more weight than you lost. This will absolutely make you use more of the supplements and the addiction begins. Short term use of these products might aid in weight loss. Long term use can lead to adapted tolerance, leading to little or no fat loss benefits. Even worse prolonged use can lead to chemical dependance. Some studies have shown accelerated fat loss form 3-6 weeks with diminishing results for the next 4-5 weeks. Over 8 weeks of use you will see adapted tolerance, then little or no benefit. So the best benefits are obtained from using the product for a few weeks. Then discontinuing use to let your body rest. Then try again in a few weeks. This is called cycling. So now we know what thermogenics are, supplements that increase metabolism. Which leads to increased heat production, and few more calories burned. Studies show that thermogenic supplements will also suppress appetite, and sometimes improve mental focus. Here are the some more commonly used thermogenic ingredients. 

    • Synephrine: Bitter orange extract is used for its synephrine content. Like ephedra, synephrine increases metabolic rate and caloric expenditure it can also produce other weight-loss effects such as increased energy levels and suppressed appetite.
    • Caffeine: (guarana, kola nut, green tea extract) Caffeine is the most popular stimulant used in thermogenic fat burners. Caffeine elevates metabolic rate, encouraging thermogenesis and calorie-expenditure. 
    • 7 Keto: 7 keto, (or 7-Oxo-Dehydroepiandrosterone) a metabolite of DHEA with fewer side effects, increases metabolism and encourages fat loss. Unlike stimulants, however, 7 keto doesn't exert its effects via the nervous system, instead increasing metabolic rate by affecting the thyroid gland. 
    • Guggul: Made from the resin of the commiphora mukul tree, guggul supplements contain compounds called guggul sterones, guggul resin help normalize thyroid function, which has a positive effect on metabolism.
    • Ma huang: Ma huang has been used as a stimulant and for weight loss, and appetite suppression. Ma huang is also known as ephedrine, ephedra, ephedra alkaloids, and sea grape. The use of products containing ma huang may be dangerous. Before taking ma huang, talk to your doctor, pharmacist, or health care professional.
    • Pyruvate: A form of pyruvic acid, pyruvate is made by the body and found in food in limited amounts. Pyruvic acid assists in the production of ATP, which is a primary energy fuel for the body, powering both vital functions and work/exercise. Studies have shown that pyruvate can significantly increase fat loss when paired with exercise and a healthy diet. Pyruvate may also increase exercise endurance, further helping to promote fat loss.
    • Green Coffee Ben Extract:  With only 20 mg of caffeine per serving, compared to a minimum of 200 mg for a cup of roasted coffee, green coffee bean extract doesn't make you nervous and jittery, like roasted coffee or other caffeine based diet aids. Rather, the active ingredient in green coffee is chlorogenic acid, works to inhibit the release of glucose in the body and increases the metabolic process in the liver.

    The use of a green tea fat burner can be ideal for persons who are looking for safe and nutritious means of burning off excess weight while making some changes in the daily diet and exercise level. Green tea fat burner products are considered safe for just about everyone. With a relatively low caffeine content, the green tea burners do not tend to make anyone jittery or nervous during the course of the day. The antioxidants are a great way to help flush out the body, and the absence of harsh synthetic chemicals means the chances for side effects are kept to a minimum. Overall, the use of fat burners that are based on green tea can be an excellent option for people of just about every age and level of fitness. If you read me regularly you know how I feel. Just drink a good organic Green Tea. If your lifestyle doesn't allow for 3-4 cups a day, the supplements are a good next choice, do your homework and use a quality product.

    If you heat up your menu, that will boost your metabolism too. Spicy foods such as hot mustard's, hot sauce, chili peppers, salsa, wasabi, and even drinking cold water have been shown to increase metabolism. Sometimes for hours after you've finished a meal. Spices also boost your mood. Hot spicy foods activate pain receptors in the mouth, which cause the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals. Now since most fat burner supplements contain stimulants, start with a small or half dose so you can assess your tolerance to the formula. Most fat burners contain extensive fine-print warnings that pertain to heart health, blood pressure, and many other conditions, so be sure to READ and respect labels. Consult your physician before beginning any weight loss plan or taking any fat burning supplements. So there's no miracle pill that burns fat, sorry to crash the party. Fat burner supplements, and foods can however enhance the fat loss effects on a person with a healthy diet and exercise program. The better the program, the better the results. To evaluate the effects of your fat burner, have your body composition (fat) measured just before beginning to use the product you've chosen, and measured again at regular intervals. Fat burners aren't magic, or there would be much fewer overweight people. They can be, in reality dangerous, and at times deadly over-hyped drugs. MIRACLE PILLS DO NOT EXIST. Nothing can ever substitute a healthy diet and workout program. Good Luck...
