Do fat burners really work?

    Diet is of course king. Followed by fitness. Would adding on a fat burner speed up the process? Just curious.

    Yes, they do but almost all of them are damaging to your heart so be careful.

    Any ones I've found that REALLY work end up being pulled from the market, or the formula is changed to be much less intense. Probably for 'not killing people' reasons. RevXP, for example. I think you nailed it about diet and exercise.

    I tried one once a few years ago. I got really irritable and it took me a week or so to realize the fat burner was the problem. Everything and everyone was just pissing me off to no end. Then I realized it was the fat burner and I decided it was best to stop hating the world. Back to the tried and true ways for me.

    Depends on what you define "work" as.

    Everybody's different. For me, personally, I don't take them as a "fat burner". I take them to give me energy to do cardio which, in turn, burns fat. In that way, it works. I don't think if I just took them without doing cardio it would do much of anything but just make me nervous and clean the house more often.

    They just put me in a constant state of starvation. I'd metabolize whatever I had in my stomach immediately.

    i swear by oxyelitepro by usp labs. i've been on it several times and it's worked like a mutha. i'm currently on this supp-free phase so i'll prolly end up getting back on it if i feel the need to. i'm curious about grenade, tho. i'd stay away from hydroxycut. had a bad reaction to it a couple years ago. icon_evil.gif

    Supplements - unless you mean a serious chemical like Trenbolone - are effective but only at the margins. You better have a diet and exercise regiment that is already on point if you want to see results from them.

    These "fat burners" are toxic to organs such as liver and kidneys. They can also lead to heart problems and palpitations.

    They work by increasing your basal metabolic rate, but only for as long as you use them.

    Yes, Oxyelite Pro is very effective. The caffeine in one pill is about the same as a cup of coffee, but it's definitely an effective thermogenic. I tried Cellucor D4, and it stimulated bowel movements, but was also a good thermogenic.

    An effective thermogenic, coupled with good cardio will have you seeing great results. Just make sure to drink LOTS of water and be careful mixing it with other body-drying things like anti-histamines/decongestants.

    Wow, googled Fenphedra and found this review: "Fenphedra makes you lose weight the same way cocaine does." Even the promotional piece on it states it gives you a "natural high". Interesting.

    Uh, that's the exact same effect I got with one of those non-prescription ED drugs you get at one of those places of ill repute.

    Wait a minute, I know these fat burners aren't selling for $20 a tablet like Cialis. icon_evil.gif

    To the OP: it isn't worth taking shortcuts and risking your health.

    Treadmill, with max incline. Don't run. Walk at speeds less than 3MPH. Worked great for me.
