With the new year comes renewed fitness & weight loss goals!
One of the biggest supplement area is the "fat burner" category. Keep in mind that supplements are there to "supplement" the exercise and nutrition work that you do. Even though they are called "fat burners" , these supplements won't melt fat off of you without some added effort on your part. The real mechanism is the increase in metabolism and thermogenesis that occur due to the stimulants and combinations of herbs and compounds in these pills.
Take heed of the warning labels, as these supplements should not be used by those with heart conditions, blood pressure issues or any other medical conditions. You can get lean without the use of fat burners. I got into my lowest bodyfat percentage for competition without using any fat burners, just good ole weight training, cardio, a good nutrition plan and time!
I hope that this sheds some light on what fat burners are and can do. Just remember that there is no magic pill or short cut to fitness and weight loss success!! If there was everyone would be in shape!
