Fat Burners - Speed Up Fat Loss?

I'm in need of a Good Fat Burner

Trim Spa
Hydroxy Cut
Slim Quick
Rapid Slim

Lose excess belly fat
Burn fat while you sleep
Block Carb, Block Fat
Increase your Energy
Stimulate your Metabolism

You have to get honest with yourself here and ask, do such miraculous results really come in a bottle? Is there an really easy way out?

~ Easier than choosing to eat supportive foods over the dead, overly processed crap?

~ Easier than scheduling the time needed to challenge your body with effective exercise over sitting all day long?

~ Easier than making excuses and blaming external situations over taking responsibility for your daily thoughts and actions?

Sorry, no matter how much we wish, hope and pray - there is so quick and easy short cut when it comes to boosting our metabolism and losing the stubborn fat.

Especially when it comes to fat burners and the pills that promise super fast fat loss. Sure, we can be easily mislead to believe that such solutions exist. We see the before and after pictures and wonder why it can't produce the same results for us.

Well first of all, research flat out continues to show that these products are ineffective. In fact, a recent scientific review paper in the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded there is no substantial evidence that any fat loss products evaluated (which was most on the market) are effective. And those that showed any evidence, produced effects that are barely worth the money we pour into the companies pockets.

Sure, a combination of appetite suppressants, stimulants, compounds that make your stomach feel "full," and diuretics may initially result in "weight loss" but
taking a pill does not magically fix the underlying reasons why you gained weight in the first place. You did not gain weight overnight, why would taking a pill make all the reasons why you gained weight disappear?

Then you have to ask, how long do you expect to take these pills?
Have you considered the cost involved?
The negative side effects?

Even more intriguing....What will happen when you stop taking the pill? Especially the fat burners that contain an appetite suppressant.

Here are the facts:
+ Not eating will only will slow your metabolism.
+ Not exercising - or choosing an ineffective method to exercise - will only cause you to lose your lean muscle which will in turn cause you to end up with an even slower metabolism.

Just like there is no Easy Button to get through the daily toils of life, there are no short cuts when it comes to the steps you must take to effectively boost your metabolism and burn more fat.

At the heart of every effective fat loss program is the concern for the development of a natural Fat Burner - Muscle!

Plain and simple - Muscle Burns Fat

Muscle is the single most important factor that determines how much fat and how many calories you burn throughout the day and even while you sleep! The more lean muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, the more efficiently your body burns fat.

If muscle makes you cringe, then you need to get used to a thin, soft, flabby body. For lean, toned, fit bodies have lower body fat and a lot of lean muscle. Get to the heart of why you are hesitant to give Resistance Training a chance - - - > Here

While there are two and only two supplements I recommend when it comes helping you reach your fat loss goals, the "magic" fat burner pill is not one of them. Why not invest in supplements that actually have positive side effects?

A Healthy Body burns more fat than an unhealthy body
Take a whole food supplement to fill in the gaps in your nutrition plan. Try VGF+25!

Besides feeling good about giving your body what it needs to have a healthy metabolism, the herbal blend for women is the closest thing to magic as it tames the hormones! Gotta love that!

How about a "pill" that does have proven benefits - Omega 3's - EFA Icon a unique formulation of Antioxidants, Neptune Krill and high quality Omega 3’s.

Numerous studies over the past 10 years suggest that the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish may help you burn more fat or at the very least that they play an important role in the fat burning process, or that a deficiency could inhibit fat burning.

Play it safe and make sure your Omega 3's intake is covered with EFA Icon.

I was just looking through a few profiles from the Kentucky area and I'm very impressed by your blog. I'm a former personal trainer and fitness is a essential part of my life, next time you are in Louisville you should drop by the new Urban Active gym next to Whole Foods. It's amazing.

Hey Holly, could you cite that article for me? It sounds like an interesting read; if nothing else, I may be able to include it in my thesis. Thanks!
