Which is the best way to lose weight? Which is the most effective fat burner product? How much do you need to take of these supplements to really make it work?

If you really feel committed and ready to start, the first step to losing weight is a carefully planned diet. Without that, you can take any fat burner, you won’t lose the weight you want.

You must reform your diet: cut simple carbs, reduce the amount of complex carbohydrates and saturated fats and increase your protein intake. Eat less but more frequently (at least 5-6 meals a day) and drink much (3 litres a day). Also, do physical exercise regularly!

When you have all these, you can begin to consider taking fat burner supplements.

How much weight can you lose with fat burners?
Just by taking them, none. But if you follow an appropriate diet and do physical exercise regularly, a good fat burner combination can help you lose up to half a kilogram more weekly. It doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t be able to lose weight without a fat burner, but it can make it more effective and easier.

Which is the best fat burner?

There is no ‘best fat burner’. We all respond to various active ingredients differently – some work for me, others will work for you. That’s why there are various kinds of fat burners. You need to find the one that works best for you!

What do different fat burners do?

1. L-Carnitine: An amino acid that promotes the use of fats released as a source of energy. You should take 1,000-2,000 mg of L-Carnitine before workout so that the fats released during physical activity can be instantly used and also to give you more energy.«

2. Thermogenic fat burner: There are a number of thermogenic fat burners; all of them enhance metabolic processes by raising your body temperature and increasing your pulse, thus making your body use more energy (that is, calories). Thermogenic fat burners generally contain caffeine and therefore you should cut back on coffee and energy drinks while taking them. Thermogenic fat burners should be taken in the morning and early afternoon, before meals or before workout (not to be used in the evenings as they prevent you from a good night’s sleep). You should start with a low dosage and increase it slowly and gradually.

3. Diuretic weight loss products: On their own, they’re not very effective and don’t make too much sense, as getting rid of water results in a temporary state which your body can’t sustain for long. Your body tries to maintain water balance, and therefore – unless you get rid of all your fat – they won’t bring spectacular results. However, combined with other fat burner products, they can nicely highlight toned muscles.

4. Chromium: Chromium is responsible for controlling blood sugar levels. Taking Chromium can help prevent great fluctuations in blood sugar levels and therefore insulin peak, too, which occurs after consuming simple sugars or foods with a high glycemic index. Due to chromium, your body will store less excess fat.

5. CLA: Conjugated linoleic acid reduces the levels of sugar and cholesterol in your blood and enhances metabolism. It helps you maintain your muscle mass during a diet and contributes to reducing the size of fat cells.

6. Choline-inositol: These two active ingredients can generally be found together in fat burners, as their combination promotes weight loss effectively. Both are lipotropic agents, which means they prevent the deposition of cholesterol and fats and they increase the metabolism of fats.


How should I use fat burners?

You can easily combine fat burners of various mechanisms as they excellently complement each other’s effects. It means that you can take, for example, a thermogenic fat burner and L-Carnitine and choline-inositol at the same time. However, you shouldn’t take various fat burner products of the same mechanism, and with thermogenic products it’s definitely contraindicated, because too many stimulants will not make your more energetic, but much more tired and lethargic (this also applies to excessive caffeine intake).

L-Carnitine 3000 mg ampule

It’s the highest dosage L-Carnitine product. I really like these ampules, because of their convenience. You just throw an ampule in your bag in the morning and take it to the gym. You can take half an ampule before workout and mix the other half into your drinking water, which will give you a continuous L-Carnitine supply during your training. In about 5 or 10 minutes, you’ll sweat like hell, but you won’t get tired and you’ll easily make it through your training.

Thermo Drine – a combined attack against fat

A combined fat burner: Thermo Drine contains, among others, thermogenic ingredients, L-carnitine and chromium. Thermogenic ingredients will make you energetic all day and give you energy to work, train, study, etc. Green tea extract improves digestion, stimulates metabolism and promotes the instant breakdown of fats, thus helping to break down existing layers of fat, too. Caffeine mobilises fats and facilitates their use as a source of energy. Garcinia Cambogia extract suppresses appetite and inhibits lipid synthesis (the deposition of fats). Its companion is the famous Yerba Mate, which helps burn calories thermogenically, and at the same time, suppresses appetite, while enhancing concentration and alertness.

Thermo Drine fat burner contains L-Carnitine as well as diuretic agents, thus attacking excess fat from various angles and providing complex help in losing weight. Its chromium content controls your blood sugar levels.

Kola nut stimulates the functioning of the central nervous system, enhances alertness and mental fitness, suppresses hunger, stimulates circulation and supports muscle work. It has a gentle diuretic effect, and therefore it doesn’t cause dehydration, but effectively cleans your body and helps the remnants of broken down fats to be removed. It’s a natural source of caffeine!
