There is a flood of products that supposedly help you burn fat and lose weight. At best, these products are temporary solutions to your fat and weight problem! A general rule for you to follow with regards to fat loss/weight loss is this: Don’t waste your money if the program offers a quick solution to your weight problem! Why? You need a permanent solution to your weight problem. A permanent solution takes hard, smart work and sacrifice on your part. Human nature always seeks the path of least resistance.
Some of these products are: Hoodia, green tea, numerous fat burn products, fat loss pills, patches, creams......you fill in the blank! If you are significantly depending on these products to fix your problem, you will be disappointed with a lighter wallet to boot! And, some of these products are potentially harmful (remember ephedra)! If you're wondering about the safety of any supplement, check out the "Generally Regarded As Safe" (GRAS) list published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Doctors, dieticians, and fitness experts agree that the best way to lose fat and weight is to eat higher quality calories and increase your physical activity. Weight training (including body weight training) and interval cardio exercise will tone your body and provide the heart health you need. Just make the commitment and work hard! Your body will thank you!
