Best Fat Burner of 2016
What is the best fat burner for men and women?
Fat burners have commonly been marketed as a “magic pill” which will help you shed pounds of fat while you’re sitting on your couch eating potato chips. I assure you this is NOT the case. Don’t get me wrong, fat burners WILL help you shed excess weight fast, but only if you work hard in the gym and have sound eating habits to go with it.
It’s difficult to stay strict on your diet when you’re working out – the more you work-out the more hungry you feel, and then you find yourself in a McDonald’s eating a double cheeseburger. However, if you want to reap the benefits from your fat burner supplement it’s a necessity to stay strict and focused. Remember, when your body depletes its’ glycogen stores it will look to burn fat for fuel so don’t pour in excess carbs with junk food.
How Do Fat Burners Work?
Fat burners will help suppress your appetite with ingredients such as bitter orange extract while simultaneously keeping you energized while on calorie restricted diets with stimulants like caffeine. With their complex blend of ingredients, fat burning supplements can help you burn more calories during exercise by increasing your body temperature. When your body temperature is increased this stimulates your metabolism resulting in the fat stores being called upon for energy. This process is referred to as thermogenesis.
3 Fat Burner Ingredients Worth Looking At:
L-Carnitine – An amino acid which is responsible for shifting fatty acids into the mitochondria (our energy power house) and use it for energy. Effective doses are around 2000mg pre-workout.
Green Tea – A natural fat burner packed full of antioxidants which boosts your metabolism. Drink this instead of your daily coffee/tea’s. Many good fat burners come with green tea extract so be sure to read the label before you buy.
Phosphatidylserine – Responsible for controlling cortisol. Cortisol is the stress hormone and when elevated it can cause more fat storage. Those who weight train are susceptible to an increase in cortisol therefore supplementing with phosphatidylserine is beneficial as it will block the secretion of cortisol allowing you to recover quickly and burn more fat. Recommended dosages are between 500-800mg post workout.
