How Do Fat Burners Work?
By Matt Samansky
Fat burners can be an effective dietary aid when supplemented properly, but do we really know how they work? The all too common belief within the fitness industry is that fat burners are “magic pills and powders” that miraculously melt unwanted weight instantly! Unfortunately, that is not the case.
First of all, let’s address the elephant in the room; fat burners certainly DO work but as we will find out, they are not the end-all-be-all to achieving our weight loss aspirations.
Think of fat burners as the spice on a chicken breast. Despite the chicken being flavorless and bland, you will still eat it. Add a shake of salt, a pinch of pepper, and a splash of hot sauce to enhance the taste of the chicken breast! Fat burners work the same way. Diet and exercise will get the job done, but add a fat burner for optimal results.
Pills and powders of the fat burning variety are broken down into two categories and function in a number of ways. The first category of thermogenic supplements is fueled by stimulants like Caffeine, Synephrine, Tyramine, and Yohimbine (or Yohimbe). These ingredients are not for the faint of heart, however, and should be cycled according to one’s tolerance. Stimulants have a unique effect on the central nervous system, suppressing appetite while increasing energy. Not only will you find yourself eating less under the influence of a thermogenic, but you will also feel more energized to complete a workout and other daily activities.
Manufacturers understand certain customers do not enjoy the jitters and extreme energy associated with a stimulant laden fat burner, enter the non-stimulant category. Green Tea Extract, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, and Raspberry Ketones are just a few ingredients found in a stimulant-free fat burner. One would not feel a shock of energy when supplementing with these products but that does not mean they are ineffective. These ingredients induce a state of high metabolic efficiency in which you will feel an increase in body heat as your metabolism works harder to oxidize fat.
Now that you are more educated on the correct fat burner for you, let’s talk about how they work.
Fat burners get down to business from the point of ingestion, and start to ignite the central nervous system. Step one in the fat burning process calls for the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine signaling the mobilization of fat from the cell where it then travels to the blood stream. Fat will not just burn away once it reaches the bloodstream, however, and this is where the work comes in.
You didn’t expect to pop a fat burner and watch the weight melt sitting on your couch, did you? Of course not! As we discussed earlier, fat burners work, but will only get you so far. That is why it is crucial to stick to a strict diet and daily workout regiment in order to get the most out of your fat burner of choice. If you are not working out regularly and creating a need for energy, the fat that gets released into the bloodstream will just be stored as fat again. Thermogenic supplements prepare your body for success, but diet and exercise will thrust you on the winner’s podium.
