Are Fat Burners Right For You?

Most people who want to “get fit” actually want to just have a quick fix and lose extra weight. And sure, losing the extra weight is part of getting fit – but there is no fast way to do that.

To be physically fit means to be in a state of health and well-being. Physical fitness is defined as the body’s ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to be healthy, to resist disease and to react to emergency situations.

That being said, being fit doesn’t mean being stimulated by high amounts of caffeine & and other natural or chemical components. I always try to be sure to get my clients, friends and family members FIT before I suggest any sort of supplements that will further increase their heart rate, dehydrate them, or otherwise harm their bodies before they are physically ready for them.

If you have a hard time climbing the stairs and if a 1 mile run seems like it will be the death of you, you do not need to be on a fat burner supplement. I say this because I care – not because I want to keep you from reaching your goals. But because there is something very addictive about fat burners that will hinder your progress more than they will ever help you if taken at the wrong time and for the wrong reasons.

Aside from the amount of caffeine that is in most fat burners, there are other properties that make these little pills so addictive. One thing that has been an addiction for myself in the past is the instant loss of 5-7lbs (2-3kg) in a matter of days or a week. This is not bodyfat… when you are taking a fat burner and you actually have fat to lose, this is not fat that you’re losing in 5 days. This is WATER WEIGHT. And being addicted to the idea of losing water weight is going to keep you taking these pills, and maybe even doubling the doses when the scale evens out….

If you’re overweight, understand that it didn’t happen over night and that there is no quick fix that will last. Educate yourself on your heart and the stressors that come with training & being over weight to start with before adding supplements that could further impair your desired results.

I hear far too often from clients that their previous personal trainer or “friend at the gym” suggested that they take something, and the horrifying stories that follow just make me want to shake people! If you’re overweight — DO NOT TAKE CLENBUTEROL! Just STAY AWAY FROM THAT SHIT! Things you can buy over the counter cause enough harm to a body that isn’t prepared for the stress — clen is a drug that shouldn’t be played with, alongside phentermine & several other “magical weight loss pills” — DO YOUR RESEARCH!

You don’t put low grade fuel in your car, don’t put hazardous chemicals in your body when you dont understand them, how they work, and what may happen to your body, heart, and brain if you use them.
