Fat Burners: Your Simple Guide

Everybody has heard of fat burners, those magic pills that just melt away all that nasty fat blocking the beauty of your six pack, those malignant love handles and that evil cellulite hanging on your thighs like parasites! The truth is not that dramatic I’m afraid, fat burners are supplements after all and like all supplements they are meant to assist or boost your main fat burning efforts not become it. No fat burner, no matter what its advertisers claim can replace the time trusted methods of healthy nutrition, portion control and heavy work in the gym, get that straight right at the beginning.

However, fat burners can and do play a role as part your health and fitness plan, when you KNOW that you are eating right, watching your portion size and exercising to the best of your ability and the pounds are still not coming off as they should , then and only then in my opinion should you reach for those pills. Do fat burners work? In my experience, if you get the right ones, yes. Should you always use them, no!

Today, I will be taking a look at fat burners, what they are, what they do, how and why they work, what’s in them etc. so that you can make an informed choice on if fat burners can help you reach your  health and fitness goals.


WHAT IS A FAT BURNER?

A fat burner is basically a nutritional supplement that helps you body to greatly increase fat metabolism or increase energy expenditure, impair fat absorption, increase weight loss, increase fat oxidation during exercise, I could go on and on in defining them but I know you get the picture by now. That’s a lot of work for just a little pill, right? So let’s delve a little deeper into the workings of your average fat burner.


HOW DOES A FAT BURNER WORK?

The key ingredients in fat burners work by stimulating hormonal reactions in your body so that it begins to break down fat and use it as a fuel source as opposed to only using sugar from your blood. The main ingredient in most ft burners is caffeine *(take note if you are caffeine sensitive),  this helps you lose weight by increasing your metabolism and helping the body use fat for fuel, it also helps provide energy for exercise and other calorie burning activities. Caffeine increases the breakdown of fatty acids in the body in the adipose tissue i.e. belly fat. Once the adipose tissue breaks down, they enter the blood stream and can be burnt up as energy by the body.

DO FAT BURNERS WORK?

Yes they do, but no and I repeat no fat burner can fix a broken diet. You cannot stuff your face with junk calories in large amounts and expect the fat burner to do its magic, it’s a lie, it will never happen, period! Some people believe that using a fat burner should help them lose 10kg in 2 weeks! Sorry but it doesn’t work that way, you need to set realistic expectations for your weight loss. A safe rate of fat loss is probably 1 to 2 kg per week, you can even push this rate up to 3kg per week but it isn’t really sustainable, your body will protest at all that exertion or starvation, and fat loss will slow down.You can set your weight loss goals from week to week, and month to month but never day to day, this is to avoid disappointment.


FOR BETTER RESULTS, CYCLE!:

No, not on a bike! To get better results from fat burners, its best to cycle them i.e. have a rest period. It is not advisable to take fat burner in perpetuity, no matter how good they are, your body will get used to them at some point and they stop having that stimulating effect.  I advice that you do take fat burners for a 4 to 6 week cycle , and cycle off(rest) from them for the same period, this is to ensure that your body does not get too used to them and develop resistance to it. Once your body gets used to them you will not get the same rate of fat oxidation as before, by stopping every now and then, you ensure that it still activates your body to burn fat.
