FAT BURNERS/METABOLISM ENHANCERS
Many people misunderstand what a fat burner does. To many people think it’s that miracle pill that they have been searching for that will melt fat easily without effort, exercise or a proper eating plan.
Unfortunately your diet or proper eating plan is 80% of your battle. However a fat burner (which is a natural supplement and not a drug) together with a proper eating plan and training program will greatly enhance the fat burning process.
Fat burners can boost energy, help curb appetite, promote fat to be used for energy. It even increases your metabolism and core temperature so you burn more calories throughout the day. But, if you take a fat burner and then feast on burgers, pizza, and bagels, you won’t be seeing fat loss any time soon.
Fat burners will raise metabolism and blood pressure and are not recommended for people with hypertension and high blood pressure.
Personally I don’t recommend metabolism enhancers (Fat Burners) as they raise your metabolism unnaturally, are not sustainable and can become addictive. It also has the effect of increasing cravings and binging when coming off the supplement. Weight gains are also faster when off the supplement due the body’s natural metabolism remaining low.
I will only recommend and use metabolism enhancers for my clients that are prepping for a competition or photo shoot that requires there body fat to be in the low single digits. This is only temporary and as I said earlier it is not sustainable.
A supplement I would recommend is..
CLA’s (Conjugated linoleic acid)
Some of the common accolades of CLA are assistance in fat burning, building and retention of lean muscle, and is a cancer fighter.
Some of the most known suggested benefits of CLA supplementation include:
Increased metabolic rate: This would obviously be a positive benefit for any type of athlete that is trying to lose weight and improve body composition.
Enhanced muscle growth: Muscle burns fat, which also contributes to increased metabolism, which is useful in weight loss and management.
Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides: Since many people these days have elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels, even with treatment, this benefit can have an impact on any person who has high cholesterol.
Lowers insulin resistance: Lowering insulin resistance has been shown to help prevent adult-onset diabetes and make it easier to control weight.
Reduces food-induced allergic reactions: Since food allergies can be at play when weight loss becomes difficult, this can be of help.
Enhances immune system: With the variety of bacteria and poor immune systems in contemporary society, enhancing the immune system’s ability to function properly is a positive benefit to all.
CLA supplementation was also shown to improve the lean mass to body fat ratio, decreasing fat deposition. Especially on the abdomen, and enhancing muscle growth. CLA achieves this reaction by reducing body fat by enhancing insulin sensitivity so that fatty acids and glucose can pass through muscle cell membranes and away from fat tissue. This results in an improved muscle to fat ratio.
Compelling evidence also indicates that CLA can promote youthful metabolic function and reduce body fat. The unique mechanism by which this fatty acid protects against disease makes it an important addition to any supplement program.
