Fat Burners - Yes or No?

Fat Burners - Yes or No? Topic: Fat Burners - Yes or No?
September 17, 2019 / By Christianne
Question: OK so ever since quitting soccer I've become quite chubby. I'm 6 ft tall and I weigh 94 kg. My dad told me that I'm big boned just like everybody on my mother's side. I play a lot of basketball and it is a dream of mine to learn to dunk. I have strong calfs and the main thing that is holding me down is my fat. Lately I've been living a healthier life style - Oat Meal for breakfast, Soup and some meet for lunch, and a salad plus rice or smth for dinner. I haven't seen any changes in my weight whatsoever. So a friend who's into bodybuilding and such suggested a fat burner. I usually try to avoid those artificial muscle building and fat burning substances but I've really given this fat burner thing some thought. My friend said that the fat burners paired with a healthy diet and exercise (which I already get from regularly playing b-ball) will help me finally lose body fat. I was just about to order the fat burner when someone told me that it may cause impotence. Now I just need to know whether to buy the fat burners or not. Will it harm me in any way? And please don't say something like "it doesn't harm you but don't use it anyway cause the natural weight loss process is the only true one" cause I've really tried the natural way and it just doesn't work.

Fat burners are filled with questionable substances that are meant to speed up your metabolism. Many of them contain caffeine, some herbal substances that may or may not work, and a few other products of low importance. Ephedrine was used, but it was found to cause many health problems and was banned. Fat burners do nothing more than speed up your metabolism in theory, and this is just due to the caffeine they put into their products and perhaps a few herbs... It is NOT worth it, that is what I am trying to say. Your diet is much more important, and from what I am seeing, you are actually not eating enough. When you starve yourself like I believe you are doing, you actually tell your body to go into a mode where it PRESERVES fat stores and eats away at muscle. It's a survivalist thing. I am quite surprised that your bodybuilding friend has not suggesting working on your diet. As a fitness enthusiast myself, I know for a fact that those supplements are nothing more than hype and a waste of money. I strongly think that the "natural" way is not working because your diet is not right. You are not eating properly, causing your body to hold on to its fat in the process. Genetics also play a factor in this of course, but I have not met one person who eats properly, exercises like you do, and yet cannot lose weight. Weight loss involves a calorie deficit. But this calorie deficit should be slight so that weight loss is very gradual. This way, you prevent your body from feeling like it is being starved and you preserve your muscle tissue in the process. Count your calories and get a general idea of how much you're getting. You need to be eating several small meals per day that give you a full range of macronutrients and vitamins and minerals. Once again, your diet that you mention most assuredly does NOT do this for you, and it is hurting your weight loss prospects as a result.

You're wasting your money. It probably won't actually burn the fat-there is no instant cure for being overweight. I'd have already found it if there were. Save your money and just eat the fruits and veggies that the "vitamins" are made of.

A lot of fat burners speed up your metabolism when you're on them but when you run out or stop taking them making it harder on you to lose weight so unless you wanna take them like forever I'd suggest you avoid them.
