In this report I use the term to
represent a very broad list for a variety of herbs, vitamins, amino
acids, and hormones that in various ways will assist you in being more
productive at losing weight.
Some diets and products will claim
you can lose 10 pounds or more a week. Even if their claim is true
about their product, you will not lose 10 pounds of FAT. You may lose 1
pound of FAT, 1 pound of muscle and 8 pounds of water weight. Or even
worse your fad diet will not provide enough calories sending your
metabolism into a nose dive (very bad) and your body will start feeding
upon itself. You will lose muscle (and weight) as your body scavenges
for sources of protein and fuel. Please read product claims
carefully. Almost all products say their results also include a proper
nutritional program with exercise. Your body does not want to give up
What is Thermogenesis?

Proper Nutrition (Keep your
metabolism revved up by eating less food more often.)
Agents, ingredients (herbs,
vitamins, etc.) that increase thermogenesis.
Some of the listed agents work
through thermogenesis. Others work by affecting various levels of the
conversion of food or body fat to energy such as insuring proper
insulinfunction , helping the liver process fats or stimulating a
Please use any thermogenic agents
with caution, always starting with low dosages to test your body for any
unusual reactions. Some of these agents (like ephedrine) the body can
quickly develop a tolerance to if you take them on a regular basis. So
the same dosage will be less effective. Do not keep raising the dosage!
Take a break, allow your body to empty itself of the chemical by cycling
off of the agent. Typically take a break every 3 to 4 weeks, staying
off for about a week then resume the on off cycle. Or, only take the
agent every other day.
Another effective method to keep
from building a tolerance to an ingredient would be to find different
fat burners that you have found effective for your body type and then
take them on alternate days.
Please consult a doctor before
consuming any herb or drug particularly if you have a special
condition concerning diabetes, pregnancy, thyroid, kidney etc. or if you
are on any prescribed medication. Some of these agents can raise blood
pressure or cause thinning of the blood and many other effects to the

Full List of Ingredients
All of the ingredients listed below
may not be useful for weight loss but you will see them promoted as
weight loss agents.
Some agents listed do not have
repeated solid, unbiased human studies that clearly point to its
abilities to help you lose weight. Many ingredients are accepted "on
faith" that they work or have shown limited effects in the laboratory
but these studies have not been applied to humans.
You will easily see in the charts
and graphs I have provided for you, three main ingredients listed
over and over. These three ingredients are Ephedrine, Caffeine and
Aspirin. You may see these
ingredients referred to as "the stack" or "E/C/A stack". It is well
accepted that these three agents work the best and the reason they are
always combined (or stacked together) are because they help each other
When one ingredient helps another
ingredient work better this relationship is considered synergistic.
One other ingredient has been found
to extend the abilities of a number of agents or work in a synergistic
fashion. It is called Naringin. You may begin to see this ingredient
appear in more and more formulas but for right now it is only found in a
Naringin is mainly found in
grapefruit juice and it is the ingredient that imparts the bitter
Some brands of grapefruit juice are
using methods to reduce naringin therefore making their juice taste
sweeter. Naringin increases the effectiveness of caffeine. Please use
caution in drinking grapefruit juice and consuming prescription drugs
because naringin has been shown to alter some drug's effectiveness. One
Huge Problem (This will save you money)
There are 2 main types of fat, white
fat and brown fat.
Some companies claim certain
ingredients will help release the energy stored in brown fat. While
there are some animal studies to back this claim up there is one huge
problem. Humans have little to zero brown fat in their bodies! Brown fat
is found exclusively in animals and mainly in animals that utilize
hibernation. Do not fall for claims made on this basis!
This is the isolated active
ingredient in fenugreek seeds that actually works. It may help
regulate insulin insuring more energy gets to cells and gets used.
Do not look for fenugreek seeds in
products because you would have to take very large dosages to get the
This product is presently fairly
expensive and there are other ingredients that perform about the same
function and cost less. With the active ingredient you only need about
250 mg per dose.
Griffonia simplicifolia used more for affecting mood disorders than
weight loss as a mild appetite suppressant. The studies for this controversial
agent in relieving depression are mixed at best and zero for weight
It is not recommended since there
are so many other agents that do a better job. Our bodies make 5-HTP
from the amino acid L-Tryptophan but taking supplements does not
Apple Cider Vinegar in liquid or
pill form there is zero evidence this does anything for you relating to
weight loss. Go to the store and buy some for under a dollar and season
your food with it.
If an apple cider vinegar product
works for reducing fat then it is because of other fat burning
ingredients included in many of the products. Aspirin Salicin, White or
Purple Willow Bark, Acetyl-Salicylic Acid .
When combined with ephedrine and
caffeine, aspirin taken 3 times a day in dosages of approximately 300 mg
helps to form the most potent fat burner available. Doctors now
recommend for certain people regular treatments of low dosages, up to
100 mg, of aspirin for other ailments other than weight loss.
Regular aspirin can contain 100-400+
mg depending on strength. Constant use of high doses of aspirin may
cause internal bleeding.
There are plenty of good products
that do not contain aspirin.
B Vitamins most all the B Vitamins
assist in the processing of energy. A dietary deficiency is not
likely unless you are following a strict fad diet that is limiting in
variety of foods and multivitamins or B complexes certainly supply
enough. Additional supplementation does not tend to assist in the extra
burning of calories. dosages per day;
B1 (Thiamin) 1.5 mg, B2
(Riboflavin) 1.7 mg, B5 (Pantothenic Acid) around 5 mg, B8 (Folic Acid)
400 mcg, B12 (Cobalamin) 6 mcg, B3 (Niacin) 20 mg, B6 (Pyridoxine) 2mg,
Certain groups of individuals may be at higher risk for lacking one or
more of the B vitamins. Pregnant women need extra B8, vegetarians and
the elderly may need extra B12 etc. but a good diet that involves a
variety of foods plus a basic multivitamin should insure you get more
than the RDA. Although these vitamins are very important and you do not
want to be deficient in them; Weight loss claims from fat burning
supplements that say you need their product because it contains any of
the B vitamins is unwarranted as long as you eat properly and take a
Caffeine Guarana, Guarna
Extract, Guarana Seed, Kola Nut, Bissey Nut, Paullinia Cupana, Mate,
Yerba Mate, Guaranine. Caffeine can be found in many sources and you can
easily substitue with a cup of coffee, tea or even green tea. One of
the benefits of taking caffeine in pill form is no additional calories
associated with sugars usually used to sweeten drinks. Acts mainly as a
nervous system stimulant and mild appetite suppressant.
Combined with ephedrine, it makes
the best fat burner stack known. 200 mg 3 times a day.
The amount of caffeine
in some common beverages is as follows:
Coffee, brewed - 40 to 180 mg. per
cup Coffee, instant - 30 to 120 mg. per cup Cola and other soft
drinks, containing caffeine - 36 to 90 mg. per 12 ozTea, brewed
American - 20 to 90 mg. per cup Tea, brewed imported - 25 to 110 mg.
Tea, instant - 28 mg. per cup The
product Vivarin contains 200 mg of caffeine Capsaicin Cayenne,
Capsicum Capsaicin is the compound that makes peppers hot.
Some people can ingest large
quantities without adverse gastrointestinal side effects (heartburn).
Basically any hot spicy food that causes you to sweat is having a thermogenic
effect on your body. Effective dosage can be high, up to 3 grams per
day and can cause heartburn in some individuals.
Chromium Chromium Picolinate,
Chromium Citrate, Chromium Chloride, Chromium Polynicotinate. These
are all different forms of the same mineral but the body is better at
absorbing some than others. There is a big fight between the two camps
of those who say chromium picolinate is better and those who say
chromium polynicotinate is mor eabsorbable.
This mineral helps insulin at
regulating blood sugar. The two most popular forms are picolinate and
polynicotinate. Recommended dosage per day is 120 mcg.
Some fat burner supplements
supply as much as 200 mcg and I have seen recommended dosages (for hard
training weight lifters) as high as 400 mcg.
Although higher than the recommended
serving of chromium may not increase weight loss, it is thought that
many people are deficient in this trace mineral. Therefore people who
are overweight (or diabetic) may not be getting the full effects of the
insulin regulating abilities of this nutrient. A simple multivitamin
should help insure you get enough and buying supplements that supply
more may be just a waste of money.
You may also get chromium from
Brewer’s Yeast, a source rich in this nutrient often used by
vegetarians since it also supplies B12, copper and iron. One ounce of
brewer's yeast can supply an easily absorbable 100-200 mcg.
Cocoa Bean Chocolate
The ancient magical drink really
does contain numerous active compounds that may act as potent fat
burners. Do not run out and buy a bunch of chocolate at the store. Once
processed and mixed with milk and sugar it will do you no good except to
put on fat and maybe help give you a feeling of satisfaction. But here
is a breakdown of 4 active ingredients that when isolated and
standardized for proper potency may prove effective.
Phenylethylamine (PEA) This is
the ingredient that makes you feel good. By promoting a sense of well
being, happiness and satisfaction it can help eliminate binge eating or
eating due to depression. Remember our bodies are very smart and when
depressed many people turn to chocolate possibly to stimulate that
feeling of well being.
The only problem is store bought
chocolate promotes fat storage. This ingredient may be found in some
brands just to bring on feelings of satisfaction to help eliminate over
eating. It does not directly promote fat loss.
Theobromine Affects humans much like
caffeine by acting as a stimulant and mild diuretic. Amounts can
vary greatly in different chocolates and beans so the ingredient
needs to be standardized.
Theophylline Can stimulate the
central nervous system, increase heart rate. Considered a potent
stimulant that may cause jitters and other negative side effects much
like ephedrine. So people who are sensitive to stimulants of this type
may need to avoid it.
The last two ingredients,
Theobromine and Theophylline, are somewhat new and may begin to appear
in more and more fat burner mixes. Knowledge of their actual fat burner
abilities is limited at this point.
Coleus Forskolii Makandi
The root of this mint plant contains
forskolin, a compound found naturally in the body that can affect many
aspects of metabolism. Supplementing with forskolin may be a good thing
although I do not believe there is solid human evidence for it. It is
increasingly appearing in more products. If you want to supplement with
it look for standardized extracts of 10-20% forskolin, about 100-300 mg
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
there is plenty of fantastic positive data in animal studies but in
human studies the results have been mixed on weight loss. Recently, I
have been reading very good results from newer human studies from
You may benefit the most from this
agent the more overweight you are but if the results in the animal
studies transfer at all to humans, then this is a great supplement. CLA
also appears to target fat loss in the stomach area. CLA, a naturally
occurring fatty acid, is obtained in your diet mainly through beef and
Although in supplements it is mainly
derived from vegetable oils. Be sure to look for the brand name Tonalin
for quality CLA products. The right dosage of CLA is unclear but it
appears an average diet would not supply enough (maybe 1-gram). About
3-6 grams daily should be an appropriate amount.
Corosolic Acid Banaba Leaf,
Glucosol, Regulin. Helps to regulate blood sugar and insulin. May
reduce cravings for carbohydrates and sweets resulting in weight loss
over an extended period of time. You will probably see this ingredient
listed more often as banaba leaf in diet teas but the two company brand
names producing the chemical form are Glucosol and Regulin. 16-48 mg per
day divided with meals. Creatine This supplement is highly
effective. But it does not directly help you to lose weight.
Creatine is necessary (we need about
2 grams per day) in our muscles to process energy. This supplement is
proven, in many studies, to help you build additional muscle if you are
working out with weights. Additional muscle helps you to burn more
calories therefore you will burn additional fat. There is no need to
take this supplement unless you are going to lift weights.
It also does not increase
duration-oriented exercise like aerobic activities. Do not take it just
to try and burn extra calories. Creatine is found in meat and fish and
you normally get about a gram in an 8 ounce steak. Dosage 2 g per day.
Dioscorea villosa Mexican/Wild
Yam may have some benefit in regulating blood sugar but no good evidence
exist to support this. More likely useful in helping women during the
menstrual cycle but there are better ingredients for this. Ephedrine
Ephedra, Ma Huang, Sida Cordifolia. Laws in some states and Canada limit the
drug ephedrine. You can also find ephedrine in some over-the-counter
medications such as asthma bronchial dilators (both inhalants and pill
form) and in decongestants.
I took all of these products to
alleviate ( M's allergies and mild asthma for years before M became
truly aware of the active ingredients. It is considered to be one of the
most effective thermogenic agents, it stimulates the nervous system and
can raise blood pressure. Recommended dosage for a healthy adult of
ephedrine is no more than 100 mg in a 24-hr period. Almost all reputable
products deliver no more than 20 mg of ephedrine in a single serving as
Fenugreek Typically used in
seasoning foods fenugreek is also known for its ability to affect blood
sugar and reduce appetite. The only draw back is large quantities are required
to obtain results making it unlikely to be used for such purposes. The
seeds also act like the popular chitosan and absorb fats. Consumption of
15-20 grams per day is effective in controlling blood sugar, while
higher levels (up to 100 grams) may be needed to effectively suppress
appetite for weight loss purposes. It is unlikely that any supplement on
the market would supply these quantities.
The active ingredient in fenugreek
seeds that is actually useful has been isolated and is called
4-hydroxyisoleucine (see 4-hydroxyisoleucine listed above for details) Green
Tea polyphenol, catechins The active compounds in green tea are the
polyphenols of which various catechins make up the largest portion.
There is some pretty good evidence that green tea has a direct effect on
weight loss. Look for extracts standardizedto at least 60% polyphenols 125-500 mg per
day. This equals approx. 4-10 cups of green tea. Guarana (see caffeine)
Guarana seeds contains twice as much caffeine as coffee beans so
companies use it as a cheaper source of caffeine.
Guggul gum guggul, guggulu,
guggulsterones, guggulipids, from the mukul myrrh tree If you take this
make sure your supplement says guggulipids as gum guggul and guggulu ay
contain unwanted impurities. Presently there is not enough lab evidence
to suggest this supplement is warranted for weight loss but further
studies are being made.
It has been used in India in
Ayruvedic medicine for many years to stimulate thyroid production.
If you have low thyroid output you
may benefit from this chemical. Guggulsterones are becoming increasingly
popular in body building supplements to encourage every ounce of fat
loss possible. Dosage is 200-800 mg daily.
Gymnema Sylvestre Gurmarbooti,
gurmar, periploca of the woods, meshasringi Helps to regulate blood
sugar and insulin. May reduce cravings for carbohydrates and sweets
resulting in weight loss over an extended period of time. Known as the
"sugar destroyer" is may also reduce the taste of sweetness on your
Certain medications, including
antidepressants (St. John’s wort) and salicylates (white willow and
aspirin) can enhance the blood sugar-lowering effects of gymnema
sylvestre, whereas certain stimulants such as ephedra (Ma Huang) may
reduce its effectiveness.
Dosage uncertain but 400 mg per day
helped diabetics and so those who are simply overweight should require
Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) Garcinia
Cambogia, Citrin, CitriMax This popular weight loss ingredient
actually does not have enough evidence to support it being used as the
There is some evidence it may block
conversion of simple sugars into fats but does not work directly on
dietary fats. HCA may be limited to working as an appetite suppressant
and weight loss aid mainly if you are consuming large quantities of
carbohydrates (mainly simple sugars like bread, potatoes, candy etc.)
One other case against it is the
high dosages used in the studies are considerably less than what is
offered in a lot of commercial products. Dosages to look for are a
minimum of 750 mg of Garcinia Cambogia standardized to contain at least
50% HCA 3 times per day.
Hydroxy-Methyl-Butyrate) Like creatine listed above this supplement is
safe and proven for muscle recovery. So indirectly it can help you lose
fat but mainly if you are going to be exercising.
HMB helps to keep your muscles from
breaking down during exercise (both short duration and endurance
exercise). There are some indications it does help metabolize fat.
Dosage is about 1 gram per day while not working out and 3 grams per day
during intensive workouts.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid easily
produced from a variety of other common nutrients (lysine, methionine,
vitamin C, iron, niacin and vitamin B6) within the body. L-Carnitine is
needed to release energy from fat. In situations of high energy needs
the body can become temporarily deficient. There is no evidence that
larger doses help with additional fat loss and the body produces all it
needs. Even strict vegetarian diets or extremely low calorie diets do
not tend to lack in L-Carnitine. You can be assured of getting plenty by
taking an amino acid complex or consuming plenty of protein. If you
wish you can supplement with 2-6 grams per day.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is very similar
and some people suggest more effective.Although you are not likely to
notice any difference the recommended dosage is lower, 500-750 mg per
Lipotropics in general, are
substances that prevent an abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver
(fat disolvers). Besides improving fat metabolism, lipotropics will also
aid in the metabolism of fat-soluble nutrients and aid the liver in its
other metabolic functions such as the processing of hormones, estrogen,
sulfa drugs, glucose, and glycogen.
The average person should get plenty
through their diet and there is no real evidence that additional
supplementation increases weight loss but if you wish to supplement,
find a good multivitamin/B vitamin complex that supplies these
There should be no need to waste
money buying special "lipotropic" products for weight loss. 4
lipotropics listed below:
Choline aids in emulsifying
cholesterol so that it doesn't settle on arterial walls. Lecithin or
Phosphatidylcholine is the best way to supplement although the body can make
choline from the amino acid methionine. The average diet supplies the
RDA dosage per day approx 400-900 mg. Additional supplementation
should not be required unless you are an athlete then you may want to
look at 1-5 grams per day. Betaine (TMG) (trimethylglycine) Methyl
groups can deactivate harmful substances in the body and convert them to
Both betaine citrate and betaine
aspartate are good supplements to look for. Betaine is not an essential
nutrient, and thus no deficiency state exists.
Inositol metabolizes fats and
cholesterol and aids in transporting fat in the blood system. Thus it
is an aid in the redistribution of body fat. No real deficiency state
exists although in clinical treatments doctors have prescribed high
dosages of 1 gram or more.
Methionine is an amino acid that
reduces fat and aids in lowering cholesterol. It can be substituted
for choline, which aids in reducing liver fat. Methionine seems to act
as a catalyst for choline and inositol thus speeding up their function.
It is an essential amino acid and requirements vary according to body
weight, approximately 800–1,000 mg of methionine per day.
An amount easily obtained by
Momordica Charantia Karela, bitter
melon, bitter gourd, carilla plant, wild cucumber, African cucumber,
Kuguazi is a common vegetable eaten by many throughout the world, Bitter
Melon grows on a vine, is cousin of the squash and hates cold weather.
The vine resembles that of the tomato. Instead of round red fruit,
however, the bitter melon has green cucumber shaped fruit. It's called
"bitter" for taste, "melon" for looks.
There is some evidence to suggest
bitter melon works to stabilize insulin or lower blood sugars.
It is presently unclear as to which
chemicals or combination of chemicals in this plant are responsible for
it's actions. Further studies are being conducted. Dosage very uncertain
possibly between 5-100 ml per day.
Morinda citrifolia (Noni) typically
known as Noni Juice in a variety of forms. Do not waste your money on
products that promote this as the main ingredient for weight loss.
There is no evidence that suggests it will help you lose weight. Naringin
may not directly affect weight loss but it will extend the affect of
other ingredients like caffeine. Essentially making the agent more
potent. Naringin also has been shown to affect many prescription drugs.
Please use caution with this ingredient.
Dosage of 50-200 mg per day.
NADH nicotinamide adenine
dinucleotide this compound is required for the metabolic process of
energy production. It is found in meat and poultry and may increase
energy levels through supplementation. Although not as expensive as
pyruvate it can cost $2-15 dollars per day for the recommended dosages
of approx. 2-15 mg per day.
Pyruvate usually combined with
calcium but also combined with sodium, potassium or magnesium to
stabilize the compound. There is little doubt that this supplement works
for weight loss. The main problem is cost. Most studies used large
quantities 25-40 grams per day and most supplements sold commercially
only supply about 250-1500 mg per day (a huge difference).
There is no evidence to support
these small, commercial dosages are beneficial to weight loss. There
have been a couple of studies that used lower dosages around 6-10 grams a
day with positive results when combined with exercise. Prices may
change but just to supply your body with 20 grams of pyruvate a day
would cost on average around $16.00 dollars. Even if the lower dosage of
10 grams a day was effective it would still cost you around $8.00
dollars a day for this single supplement. If you can afford the price
and stand the possible gastrointestinal side effects of gas, bloating
and diarrhea such large dosages may cause, then by all means help
Ribose can assist with energy
production and can become depleted during long bouts of exercise over
periods of days. Supplementation should not be necessary for the
average exercising individual but the athlete who exercises hard nearly
every day may benefit.
Dosage per day 3-10
Synephrine Citrus Aurantium, Bitter
Orange, green orange, sour orange, Zhi Shi. It is a mild stimulant and
appetite suppressant though the scientific data on humans is poor to
limited. Synephrine is chemically similar to ephedrine but may not have
the negative central nervous effects of ephedra or caffeine, so it may
be a good alternative to those seeking thermogenesis without ephedrine
although it may not be as effective. Synephrine may raise blood
pressure. Dosages to look for are approximately 200-600 mg of citrus
aurantium that have been standardized to contain 3-6% synephrine or
about 4-20 mg of synephrine.
Taurine is a conditionally essential
amino acid meaning there are certain times of mental and physical
stress when the body does not produce enough. As the second most
abundant amino acid in the body it plays a large variety of rolls. There
are no solid studies backing claims of increased energy or muscle
increase from supplementation.
It has been found that sometimes,
strict vegetarians and diabetics can be lacking in taurine, which is
mostly found in red meat, dairy, fish and poultry. Energy drinks may
have between 50 and 100 mg and various clinical studies have used 500mg
up to 6 grams.
Vanadium Vanadyl (Vanadyl Sulfate),
Vanadate A trace mineral recently discovered to be essential although no
RDA has been established yet. Some multivitamins may not contain it but
it is thought we only need about 10 mcg per day. Your normal daily diet
should supply enough, 10-30 mcg. This mineral may help metabolize
carbohydrates and regulate blood glucose (vanadium mimics insulin).
Vanadyl Sulfate is probably the best form and bodybuilders will consume
daily dosages as high 50 mg per day, but remember this is a trace
mineral and consuming to much could lead to a toxic buildup.
Yohimbine Hydrochloride (HCL)
Yohimbe, Yohimbe Bark, Quebracho may aid in the direct loss of body
fat. Also may prevent arteries from becoming clogged. There is more
evidence that suggest it is better used for erectile dysfunction in men
rather than weight loss. That is the reason why you will see yohimbine
included in "male formulas" more often than just in weight loss
products. May also raise blood pressure. Dosage of 1-5 mg daily.

B Vitamins Calcium Chromium Copper Iron Magnesium Vitamin
A Vitamin C Vitamin E Amino acids L-Carnitine L-Tyrosine Lipotropics Vanadium E/C/A
The E/C/A stack is a proven
winner but it can be very powerful and have strong effects on the body. I
think that for most people it is safe to take as long as you follow the
directions and do not abuse this combination.
As with any chemical some people are
more sensitive than others and if you have not tried this combination
then proceed with caution.
The reason you will find the same
approximate dosages in most fat burners is because there is a certain
ratio that has been proven to be the most effective and increasing the
dosage does not make it better. 20 mg of ephedrine, 200 mg of caffeine
and 300 mg of aspirin per dose three times a day. There is only one
brand that has the patent for the exact formula used in the clinical
trials (it is called ECA Stack by NutraSport).
Other brands mimic this formula by
using the herbal equivalents. If aspirin bothers you then look for the
herbal equivalent, willow bark or look for one that does not contain it.
The ephedrine/caffeine stack by itself is potent.
How to make the E/C/A stack
Take it 30 minutes before you work
out so you can exercise more intensely and burn extra fat. Don’t take

use a secondary set of ingredients that are different from the E/C/A
stack. If you do take it every day be sure to take a break for one week
out every month.
Special Vitamin Section
The following are some vitamins
and minerals you want to be sure to get enough of to help fight fatigue
and to keep your body supplied with the proper nutrients so you can lose
weight. If you become deficient in one or more of these nutrients then
feelings of tiredness can set in or your body will not be able to
function properly to burn fat.
Four Fatigue Fighters Doctors
have found that many people who experience fatigue are usually deficient
in one or more of these nutrients. Just being tired is no symptom
showing you lack any of these nutrients. Make sure you are getting
enough sleep first and foremost.
4. Vitamin C
Docters have discovered that people
who are overweight or on low calorie diets may lack some of the
Simply because you are overweight or
dieting does not guarantee you are lacking any one or more of these

Carbohydrate and Fat
Carbs are the fuel that your
body prefers to use. When people go on low carb diets it affects
their brains too. This is why you may become irritable, tired, and
depressed. Your body craves carbs and you are going to eventually
"crash and burn".
People will binge on foods that give
quick carb jolts. These carb jolts come in the form of simple carbs or
simple sugars that your body can break down quickly to satisfy that
Foods like candy, ice cream, and
pizza. Your body is not stupid and knows where to go to get what it
Use low carb diets
Do not try to stay on them for
extended periods. If you find low carb dieting works for you, then
utilize them for maybe 2 or 3 week stretches.
But when you go off of them
continue to exert good nutritional control.
This is why it is highly recommended
for any diet to take a break one or two days a week to reward yourself
and to keep your brain and body happy.
Two highly effective Fat and Carb
Blockers are Chitosan and Phaseolamin Chitosan Known for years, is a
marine fiber. Until recently it was required to take the product 30-60
minutes before you ate. Now new developments allow you to take it just
before you eat. The brand name chitosan to look for is Liposan Ultra. It
can bind 5 times more fat than regular chitosan and dissolves instantly
in the stomach. Phaseolamin (Phaseolus vulgaris) An effective new
carb blocker is derived from the kidney bean. One brand name to look
for is Phase 2 although many products simply list the ingredient as
phaseolamin (extract of northern white kidney bean). A 500 mg dose can
block dozens of calories.
Products to look for
containing these ingredients:
Carb Cutter (Health and Nutrition
Systems) Does not contain Liposan Ultra but does have phaseolamin and
several other ingredients for assisting the transportation and utilization
The next 3 Brands contain Liposan
(Natrol) Fat Intercept and Ultra
What to look for in an
online auction or while making any fat burner purchase?
If you are not familiar with the
brand you are buying, make sure they list the following:
2. Quantity of ingredients
3. Recommended serving and
number of servings per day
4. Quantity of pills per
Buyer Be Aware!
I have seen bottles of Stacker 2 (a
reputable product) on eBay that are very inexpensive.
The only problem is the bottle only
contains 30 pills! At the recommended dosage of 2 or 3 pills, several
times a day, at best these bottles will only last a week or two. Make
sure they list everything you need and pay attention to everything!
Standardized: Learn to read
If you look at the label on a bottle
that contains the herbal equivalent of ephedrine, caffeine and
aspirin you may see something like the following.Ma Huang 250 mg (standardized to 6%
ephedrine) 20 mg What does this mean?
This means the manufacturer used the
herb Ma Huang to supply the active ingredient ephedrine rather than
using the chemical drug ephedrine. The Ma Huang was manufactured so that
6% of the 250-mg is ephedrine. Or 20 mg of the 250 mg of Ma Huang is
ephedrine. One problem with labels is there is no standardization for
labeling supplements or herbs.
You have to take the manufacturer’s
word that it contains what it says it does. This is one reason to use
reputable popular brands that have a lot to lose if it is found out they
do not supply what the label says.
If the label says 250 mg of Ma Huang
and nothing else, then you have no idea how much of the active
ingredient ephedrine is actually in the 250 mg. You could be getting
practically no ephedrine or getting way too much to be considered safe.
Your safest bet it to look for
herbal ingredients that list the standardization of the active
One other way to tell if you are
getting a proper dose of ephedrine is if they list the ingredient as
an alkaloid. In other words you may see listed on the label Ephedra alkaloids
20 mg supplied as Ma Huang
What is a good price to pay
for a fat burner?
Of course this can easily vary
because some companies use inferior ingredients or don't even put the
ingredients in. Try to stick with trusted brand names. You may pay a
little more but you are more assured of accurate quality. Another factor
is some ingredients are flat out more expensive to produce such as
Pyruvate, CLA, 4-hydroxyisoleucine.
Average pricing for brand name
products seems to be between .20 cents and .33 cents per pill. Easily
determine a good price for fat burners by first checking for ingredients
If they list a bunch of amino
acids and vitamins then you probably do not want it if you already take a
multivitamin/amino acid complex (more does not mean better).
Then check for quantity (based on
mg, mcg, etc.) of the ingredients per serving. If the quantity of
ingredients between two nearly identical fat burners is the same then
price comparison is really easy. Pay attention to their serving size. If
one brand says take 2 pills 3 times a day and another brand says take 6
pills 3 times a day, you really need to double check the quantity of
ingredients per serving. Next, find out the cost per pill.
To find out the cost per pill,
simply take the total quantity of pills in the bottle (30, 60, 90 etc.)
and divide by the total cost. Don't forget to include shipping and
handling if it applies.
Lets assume the ingredients are the
same in the following two products. Product #1: $29.95 divided by 90
pills equals .33 cents per pill Product #2: $39.95 divided by 120
pills equals .33 cents per pill The two prices listed above are
actually equal on a per pill basis. But lets say the first product only
requires 1 pill 3 times per day to equal 500 mg and the second product
requires 3 pills 3 times per day to equal 500 mg.
Here is how to find out the cost per
serving and per day.
Product #1: .33 cents multiplied by 1
equals .33 cents per serving (1 pill) or .33 cents multiplied by 3 for
.99 cents per day.
Product #2: .33 cents multiplied by 3
equals .99 cents per serving (3 pills) or .99 cents multiplied by 3 for
$2.97 per day.
Obviously it is much cheaper to
pay .99 cents per day for Product #1 as opposed to $2.97 per day for
How to save $399.60

The best fat burner presently

I would not recommend suddenly
starting all of these products at once. If you have never consumed any
of them then you do not know how your body will react. If you do become
mildly ill from gas or diarrhea then you would know which product todiscontinue.Try one product for a while and
if everything goes okay then add another. You did not suddenly become
overweight overnight and taking some time to insure your health and lose
weight in the same fashion you put it on (a little at a time) is a good
thing. No reputable product exists that will magically melt dozens of
pounds of fat off your body in just a few weeks. Learn good nutrition
habits, exercise and you will get to where you want to be.
Fat Attack: A 6 Step Simple
Good Nutrition like everything else
does not have to be complicated, simple is better. Follow these simple
rules for 2 to 3 months and you will be amazed at the results.
1. Revise your Cupboard
Simple Rule: If Man Made it
Don't Eat It.
If it is not in
your house you can't eat it. Rid your kitchen of processed foods and
snacks. Do not fall for marketing that claim low-fat, low-sugar,
low-carbohydrate. Too many companies manipulate labels and they are
hard to figure out. Keep your cupboard simple. Chicken, tuna, vegetables
(fresh, frozen and canned are fine), fresh fruits, and complex
carbohydrates consisting of whole wheat, brown rice, yams, oatmeal (not
the processed quick cook kind). Use plenty of herbs and spices so your
meals don't get boring.
2. Handy Gauge
Use Your Hand to Gauge How Much to Eat. Do not count calories, weigh
food or other methods that make eating difficult. A fist or palm sized
amount of lean protein along with a fist-sized amount of a complex carb
(brown rice, oatmeal, and whole wheat) and fist sized serving of
vegetable or fruit.
3. Eat Less More Often.
Eat every 3 hours. Eating nutritious smaller meals and snacks every
few hours will keep your metabolism high all day long with a steady
supply of energy. Do not eat out, take all your food to work.
4. Water Yourself
Simple Rule: Drink twice as often as
you eat. Water makes everything in our bodies work better. This
cannot be understated. The first thing you should do every morning when
you get up is drink a glass of water.
5. Friendly Fats
Simple Rule: Friendly Fats Fight
Fat. Consume friendly fats (2 to 5 tbsp.) 2 times a day. Reduce bad
fats found in meat, cheese, butter, margarine, shortening and whole
milk. Eliminate fried foods and snacks. Your friendly fats are linolenic
acid (omega-3) and linoleic acid (omega-6) found in fish and some nuts.
The easiest and best way to consume these friendly fats is to buy Flax
Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil or Udo's Choice Perfected Oil Blend. Do not cook
with these oils but mix them with food you are ready to eat. You can
also add CLA supplements to your diet.
Mother Nature Provides the Best Fat Fighters Take a multivitamin and
be sure to get plenty of Calcium through low-fat dairy sources. Consume
1 gram of protein per pound of body weight (one chicken breast can have
40-45 grams of protein). Consume 35 grams of fiber a day (good sources
are bran, brown rice, beans and green vegetables). Nutrition and weight
loss can be simple. Increase the speed of your fat loss by exercising
30 minutes a day or for 1 hour every other day.
