In the ongoing, epic battle against fat, many companies have put out a countless number of “fat burners” to make you skinny, once and for all!.
Unfortunately, most fat burning supplements are just pure trash which get you all jittery and bouncy, and then hit you with a huge crash!
Do fat burning supplements work? It depends what they are. Gone Liftin’ has an approved list of fat burning and fat-loss promoting supplements which we’ll reveal in this article.
But remember this first – fat burning supplements are by no means a substitution for hard work, dedication, and most of all – A CLEAN DIET! They are just that – supplements.
With that said, there are some supplements can give our fat loss metabolisms a little nudge in the right direction, and assist us in our ever continuing conquest against unwanted body fat.
Don’t Give Fat A Chance from BodyBuilding.com provides a great list of the ingredients which you want when looking for a fat incinerating supplement to add to your diet regimen. To battle!
Fat releasers are used to get your fat cells as small as possible.
The body fat that you hold under your skin is stored in adipocytes, also known as fat cells. To lose body fat, these cells must be as small as possible, so you need to empty the fat cells of most of their contents.
Caffeine is a very popular stimulant. Most people in the world drink coffee on a daily basis. Caffeine also happens to bind to the receptors of your adipose cells (fat cells). Several studies have confirmed this is very beneficial, particularly pre-workout.
Take 200-400mg of caffeine between meals two to three times per day; take one dosage 30-60 minutes prior to training-day workouts.
Yohimbe comes from the bark of a tree found in West Africa. Yohimbe is known as a testosterone booster, which you can read more about in our other article, Boost Your Test…And Test Your Boost.
But did you know that Yohimbe is also a great stimulator of fat loss? You did?! Well shit… good for you! But did you know how? Ah HAH!
Yohimbe promotes fat loss by increasing the amount of fat that gets released from your fat cells. Similar to caffeine, actually.
Take enough yohimbe to provide 5-20mg of yohimbine per dose, two to three times per day; one dosage should be consumed 30-60 minutes prior to training-day workouts.
The above mentioned supplements both help to increase the amount of fat that gets released from your fat cells. This isn’t necessarily tantamount to that released fat being burned for good.
What you need to add are some ingredients that amp up calorie burning in your body.
You also need to ramp up your calorie burn, which forces your body to use that freed-up fat as a fuel source.
Green Tea Extract
Green Tea Extract, in a nutshell, adds the amount of calories you burn on a daily basis. Score!
The active ingredients in green tea responsible for the fat-burning effect are catechins, particularly one known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Take about 500-1,000mg of green tea extract standardized for EGCG two to three times per day.
Synephrine is known to boosting your metabolic rate, which in turn, means more calories burned!
Take about 5-20mg of synephrine two to three times per day, having one of those doses 30-60 minutes prior to workouts.
This natural plant chemical also increases the number of calories that you will burn. Capsaicin raises the body’s epinephrine levels, which makes the body burn more calories.
Look for capsaicin or cayenne pepper supplements that list Scoville Heat Units (SHU), and take enough to supply 40,000-80,000 units.
Olea Europaea Extract
Don’t worry about the pronunciation – worry about the effects! Olea Europaea Extract has a chemical known as Oleuropein The chemical oleuropein has antioxidants which boost the immune system. Research has also shown it to boost norepinephrine levels, therefore increasing fat burning processes within the body!
Not only is it a powerful antioxidant that boosts the immune system; research shows that it also boosts norepinephrine levels and therefore the amount of calories and fat burned. Take about 500-1,500mg of olive leaf extract two to three times per day with meals.
Awesome stuff, right?! Damn right it is!
