A popular question we seemed to get asked a lot of the time is ''How can I lose weight, what fat burner should I use?'' and here is my honest reply. I want to explore the reasons why you would use a fat burner and why you wouldn't necessarily use one. Are they worth your money and should you rely on them? Here's what I think...
The term 'losing weight' is something that people battle all year round for years upon years. You might be reading this now and thinking about giving up because you aren't seeing the results anymore. Losing weight is no easy goal and it requires a lot of will power, motivation and enthusiasm on a consistent basis. You have to accept the fact that the journey is going to be long and hard, but worth it when you see the results of clothing being too big for you and the general sense of feeling better about life.
Most of the time when people decide to lose weight it is through eating correctly and exercising. There are no miracles to losing weight and it doesn't just fall off in your sleep, you have to work at it to see a considerable difference. How many of you have thought about using a fat burner at this time too to help assist in losing fat? I imagine quite a lot of you will use a fat burner because you think that these capsules are going to help you lose even more weight and get you to the finish line quicker. Is this really the case?
So let's take a look at what happens when you begin to lose weight right at the very start and you are using all three variables, diet, exercise and fat burners. You will see results and you will continue to see a change in yourself physically and emotionally which is amazing to see. The differences you start to see and feel will make you feel great about yourself. But the important question to ask yourself here is if this is the fat burners doing this? Is it those capsules helping you lose weight or is it the fact that you have changed your diet and began exercising when you didn't have this nailed before.
What happens when you begin to stagnate and don't see the progress anymore? Do you blame the fat burners and tell yourself that you need something stronger because these aren't working for you anymore?
Truth is that it isn't the fat burners which helped you lose the weight it was the fact you changed what you were doing. The key is to continue to progress and change what you do. To put it in perspective, you don't change the type of meats you eat for nutritional value, you change them for the taste and to go with the meal at hand. The point I am making is that you can't use fat burners as an excuse to why you suddenly stop losing weight, your body doesn't get used to a fat burner.
So the truth is, is that a fat burner should only really be used in the very final stages of wanting to get rid of body fat. These are short term measures you should use and ultimately it is your diet and exercise routine which needs to be addressed fully. If you stop seeing results then you need to address the foods you're eating and ask yourself if you are putting in enough effort into your training.....
