Fat burning supplements: do they REALLY work?

Fat burners are the supplement industry’s fave buzz word, but do they work and are they safe?

Supplements in the stimulants category may enhance fat oxidisation depending on the goals of the exerciser (and who you’re talking to).

According to personal trainer David Bayens (primalpt.com.au), “The benefits of caffeine are well known for fat oxidation and training drive. Green tea extract is also excellent as well as anything that supports the thyroid such as iodine.”

Consider your overall health

If you do choose to use supplements, consider what they’re doing for your overall health, not merely your fat-burning capacity.

According to Mark Ottobre, owner and director of Melbourne’s Enterprise Fitness, supplements should be viewed within the context of optimising body systems that domino into fat burning.

“You improve someone’s health; you improve their ability to burn fat. You’re balancing a deficiency in something that is required for so many functions in the body. Why would the body worry about burning fat if you’re not healthy?” Bayens says carnitine can help to ferry fatty acids into muscle tissue to be used as energy during training.

Be wary of excess calories & sugar

Maston, on the other hand, does not recommend supplements. “…The increase of fat oxidation is minimal and negated by the fact it makes people hungrier and anxious,” she says.

Supplements nested in shakes and gels can also counteract a fat loss goal.

“Some of the supplements have calories in them adding to the total intake for the day. Supplements like this also often consist of sugar or artificially sweetened ingredients that also contribute to fat mass,” Maston warns.

Pre- and post-workout protein shakes

According to nutritionist Rosie Mansfield, fat burning can be manipulated with a strategically chosen pre- and post-workout protein shake.

The optimal shake to prime the body to burn maximum fat is “a low-protein blend of soy isolate and whey protein”.

Dietitian Duncan Hunter says intake timing also affects how much fat gets burned.

“The best time to have a protein drink is within 30 minutes of finishing exercise (for example, a full body workout or weights). If it is an easy walk, it is best just to go for a whole food snack or just eat your next scheduled meal if it is within the next hour or so.”

To ensure you’re not cancelling out your workout with calories, 
keep each shake to 
around 480kJ.

🌻 I haven’t went on a rant in awhile so if you don’t care to hear it... here’s your chance to exit 😝
MY QUESTION IS: Why do so many of us struggle to find happiness?! - HAPPINESS is at the top of everyone’s list. At the end of the day, we want to feel like we’re happy and have lived well. But oftentimes, we can find ourselves feeling unhappy and we may feel like we’re not sure why happiness isn’t happening for us.
- - - - - -
Most of the time when you have a negative thought or feel unhappy, you’ll read tons of self-help books that tell you to replace that negative thought with a positive one, they may also tell you to spend no more than 60 seconds thinking about it and move on about your day. (Easier said than done) That’s great advice and all but to me, all that does is sweep your negative thinking under the rug and the rug along with that negative thought is still there. Every person who has ever been on a weight loss diet understands this: “just don’t think about food” they say, (again, easier said than done) - this simply just does not work especially for the long haul.

My thoughts: 💭 The next time you’re having a bad day or a negative thought about something, don’t ignore your emotions or thinking and “put on a happy face.” Instead, try accepting the way you feel and try to identify why you are feeling the way you are. By ending the internal struggle of how you actually feel, you can begin to understand your “WHY”— And by understanding yourself and your thoughts a bit better, you come to life’s choices with the most powerful tool of all: YOUR FULL SELF! To me: I feel as though, this is a much better way to choose happiness for yourself. In the end; YES!! happiness is a choice but to understand yourself better will allow your own sense of happiness to shine in brighter than anything else! ☀️🌈🌸
