Why it is a good idea to seek a professional opinion when it comes to fat burners, thermogenesis and understanding lipolysis.


Most of us will have heard of them before but if you haven’t then simply put its a nutrient supplement that claims to acutely increase your fat metabolism or energy expenditure, impair fat absorption, increase weight loss and fat oxidation during exercise, or somehow cause long-term adaptations that promote fat to be metabolized.

The majority of fat burners will contain several ingredients, each with its proposed mechanism of action and often claim that the combination of these substances will have additive effects. The list of supplements in fat burners that increase or improve fat metabolism is long; the most popular supplements being caffeine, L-carnitine, green tea, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), forskolin, chromium, Yohimbe, Glucomannan and Raspberry Ketones to name just a few.

We will cover some of these fat burner ingredients in this article but first, let us explain two terms that are often associated with fat loss or weight loss and fat burners.


Thermogenesis is a metabolic process in your body where it burns calories to produce heat. Several factors induce thermogenesis in your body including exercise, diet and environmental temperature. Thermogenesis can promote weight loss because it increases your body’s calorie burn which means you will be burning more calories over the day. Although inducing thermogenesis can help you burn more calories, a low-calorie diet and regular physical activity are the best ways for you to lose body weight.


Lipolysis is the process by which our bodies break down fats through enzymes and water, or hydrolysis. Lipolysis occurs in our tissue stores, which are the fatty tissues that cushion and line our bodies and vital organs. These stores of fats can be thought of simply as stored energy that your body can use when it needs extra energy. During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. Lipolysis can be defined as the process in the body of breaking down stored triglycerides (or triglycerides in the blood from the food we’ve just eaten), into two main components, glycerol and fatty acids. Fat burners can be used as the final 10% of your artillery against fat being stored.

When you are looking to drop fat your Diet is 70% to 80%, Exercise is 10% to 20% and fat burners are that final 10%, that play a role to support all of your persistence and hard work to maximize the amount of fat loss that your body achieves throughout the fat loss period of your training.

Therefore fat burners don’t work to their best effect when they’re used improperly. Usually, it’s because people don’t take into account the following four basic concepts for using a fat burner efficiently to lose weight. If you follow, the next fat burner you invest in may help you trim the fat and reveal that body you’ve been working hard to build.

Different people respond to each supplement differently. We are all unique and some of the mechanisms by which these fat burners operate may not be suited or needed in every individual. Some supplements work better than others for some people.
