Lose fat, one of the most common objectives that thousands and thousands of persons are trying to reach, without good results. The absence of physical exercise plus the bad nutrition has made this the pandemic problem of the century. Perhaps for that reason, hundreds of companies are seeking profit from those called “Fat Burners” Products. You can see them on TV, magazines and the Internet showing a fit model that claims that with that amazing product, he or she managed to get six-pack abs, lean bodies and so on. They also tell you that without those products, exercise and a correct nutrition won’t work. If you want to know the truth about that, keep on reading.
It is true that fat burner substances might help you just a bit to lose fat and weight, but the way they show it to you is far away from the actual truth. Just notice that the Federal Trade Commission has sued lots of fat burner companies for false advertising.
Even the before and after photos they use are false.
What this products actually do is put a slight amount of thermogenic effect on the body so the body starts to burn a little amount of fat. The second thing they can do is to suppress slightly your appetite, but listen to this: if you stop eating between hours, you will be the one that made it. You will lose fat. Not that chemistry in that pill.
One of the most known and respected experts on this matter, Tom Venuto, NSCA-CPT, have stated this amazing fact: In order to burn fat from your body, 97% of the results will come from training and nutrition. 3% from supplements. Period.
As he has recently warned, those “miracles” are even dangerous. Take for example those who claim that “you could be burning fat while watching TV”. Sure, you will burn that 0.02 percent of fat thanks to the thermogenic effect, but, think about your health: What happens to the body if it doesn’t move? It rottens. The human body works better the more you use it. And will start to “broke” at the first time, you don’t.
This are the first things to bare in mind and don’t forget to avoid problems or frustrations with fat burning products:
– Verify what the products claims in an independent source, a med database, or an expert opinion. Check the ingredients and verify that they are proven to work. Then check if the amount contained could do something, and if they don’t let you see it bu saying it is a trade secret, simply: don’t buy it. They could be trying to give you wooden nickels, in other words, a huge swindle. Pay attention also to the side effects and warnings and check if they could be affect you specially. And finally think about this: instead of leaving the work to the pills, you could be getting twice the results by jogging, taking the steps or simply by going to walk and finally being healthy while you lose fat?
