Truth About Fat Burners
The battle for muscle build, fitness and fat loss is constant. New sources and “weapons” are being brought into the battle. One of these weapons are fat burners, which are supplements that are being used widely in order to help people lose fat and expose muscles. In this article, I will reveal some useful tips about how to take the best out of them without risking your precious health.
Over the last years it has been scientifically established that there is an immediate and unbreakable connection between muscle growth and fat loss. Building solid muscle automatically speeds up fat loss. For most people the enormous desire to have a fit and healthy body with minimum fat, leads to the search of any possible mean to achieve that. A great deal of supplements have been developed that promise to make you lose fat. Fat burners are maybe the most popular products that are being consumed worldwide. Let us see some truths about them that might be useful to the ones that are already using them and to those who intend to start:
1) Fat Burners are no Diet Replacements
This is the most common mistake related to fat burners consumption. For advertising purposes manufacturers promise immediate and effortless results. What you must keep in mind is that no fat burner can ever replace a proper diet plan. Your first priority is to follow a meal plan that will suit your goal and then support it with a quality fat burner.
2) Avoid Overdosing
Fat burners should be consumed according to the recommended dosages. Exceeding these dosages will put you under health risks. I would suggest starting your supplementation circle with the lowest dosage in order to see for yourself how the product works on your body and what the ideal dosage should be. Afterwards, you can progressively increase the dosage.
3) Beware of the Caffeine Combination
Most of the fat burning products in the market contain caffeine. The reason is that caffeine works as a natural fat burner and also as a stimulant substance. So, while you are on a fat burner supplementation circle you might want to consider reducing the caffeine intake from other sources (coffee). Although many think that the combination of these two substances will produce an extra energy-kick the eventual symptoms will be fatigue and over-excitement. You certainly want to avoid this.
4) Allow Resting Periods
By saying resting periods, I mean that after completing a supplementation circle you should stop consumption for at least a month. Do not get over-excited as soon as you experience the first results. It is better to slow down and continue with strength training, which is optimal for further fat loss and muscle growth.
Follow these simple tips, record your progress and you can be sure that you are in the right path for a lean and muscular body.
