By: BiologyBabe

In this day and age of computers, video games and ever growing technology we are busier, and yet fatter than ever! The so called "diet-pill" craze is a BILLION dollar per year industry, as everyone is looking for that quick fix, no effort solution to getting rid of unwanted weight; and right there waiting for those people are companies offering unbelievable, or unrealistic results with "their special herb, chemical, or solution"... for upwards of $150 a bottle!

Don't waste your time, or your money any longer; I'm going to give you the 'skinny' on what fat loss supplements are, the different types and expected results, and what is out there now that might be right for you!

So, whether you are a new mom, a new dad, just gained a few too many over the holiday season, or a would be competitor wanting to step on stage... read on to find out what can help you achieve your greatest results for fat loss in 2007!

The majority of the population when looking for a fat loss supplement is looking for that edge, a pill that they can pop that will magically melt away all your unwanted fat without any additional action or effort from them. Folks, this just isn't how the human body works.

Even the most effective fat loss supplements require a clean diet, caloric reduction, and some physical activity in the form of exercise; ever notice the disclaimer at the bottom of every advertisement, commercial, or label? "Results not typical" or "for best result exercise three times a week for 30 minutes and reduce your daily intake."

These are put in place to prevent your litigation once the product fails to work as advertised; so be wary and remember you have to exercise in addition to the aid of even the products I am going to list that have been shown to have great results and many happy consumers.

A fat loss supplement should do one of several things. It should increase energy, stimulate the metabolism or thyroid, and suppress the appetite; some do several of these things all at once. Let's explore the different types of fat loss supplements and find out what each of them do as well as what products Bodybuilding.com's customers are loyal to.


Thermogenic Fat Burners

Thermogenic fat burners are supplements using herbs and chemicals that are known to raise the body's core temperature and thus increasing the metabolism. These are also known as stimulant fat burners.

Old School:

    One of the classic and well known thermogenics in the bodybuilding world is the ECA stack. ECA, standing for Ephedra, Caffeine, and Aspirin (*Ephedra is still not legal).

    The ECA stack is most often taken during the cutting phase of a bodybuilding program, or during a weight loss program. It is taken prior to cardiovascular exercise.

    It's important to carefully monitor your daily caffeine intake when making Ephedra part of your supplement regimen. The known adverse side effects occur when the recommended dosage is exceeded and the amount of caffeine taken with the Ephedrine is far too much for safety.

Other Fat Burners:

    There are other thermogenic fat burners on the market that provide decent results besides ephedrine. There is also Caffeine, Synephrine HCL, and Yohimbe as well as other stimulants that work almost as well as the classic ECA. Let's take a look at the top THREE selling stimulant fat burners here on Bodybuilding.com, what's in each and what they are purported to do for you and your physique!

Biotest Hot Rox:

      • Caffeine
      Hot rox

      Hot Rox ramps up lipolysis, releasing fat from adipocytes more rapidly than Ephedra-based products to the point of no contest. Minimizes lipogenesis (fat creation) via increased cAMP and T3. Maximizes and sustains metabolism around the clock, turning fat into heat energy, through two powerful mechanisms: Fueling the TCA cycle stimulating mitochondrial uncoupling. Provides an inexhaustible supply of the weak-link substrate oxaloacetate and thus keeps the TCA cycle primed for sustained, maximum fat burn. Elevates and maintains not only the increased production of T3, but the peripheral conversion of T4 into T3 as well, without suppressing TSH (natural thyroid production). Preserves or even promotes muscle-mass gains.

        Standardized for 200mg of caffeine
      hydroxycut

      Besides being ephedra free, Hydroxycut has advanced ingredients that can help you lose weight by increasing your metabolism. In fact, a recent study conducted on Hydroxycut's key ingredient (calcium/potassium salt of 60% HCA extract from Garcinia Cambogia) showed that a subject that combining a 2000-calorie-per-day diet with a mild exercise plan (30 minutes of walking, 5 times per week) lost an average of 10 pounds in just 8 weeks.

      Even fitness models and TV personalities such as Carol Grow, Brandy Flores, Rachel Moore and others are now using new advanced Hydroxycut. The new advanced Hydroxycut can help you lose weight by reducing your food cravings.

Thyroid Regulating Fat Loss Supplements

The thyroid gland is responsible for regulation of human metabolism, that isn't just our conversion of food into energy, the metabolism consists of all the chemical processes that occur in the human body. This is a big job, and wouldn't it be nice if there was a supplement that could kick start your metabolism via the thyroid?

Here there may be a supplement that will do just that for you! The most common ingredients found in these type of fat loss supplements is guggul and forskolin. These supplements actually act as a sort of replacement for what the thyroid would produce. So, what the heck is guggul you ask?

Guggulsterones:

    Guggul is an ethyl acetate extract found in the resin of a tree found in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It's acknowledged as a weight loss aid -- Activating lypolitic enzymes as well as increasing T3 levels, due to an increase in the conversion of T4 to T3 within the liver, some believe it may directly stimulate the thyroid.

    Guggul increases T3 (tryiidothyronine) levels in animals; T3 is the conversion end product of T4, which comes from the thyroid. Increasing the thyroid levels causes more fat to be burned and decreasing the levels increase the likelihood of fat being stored.

    If you go on a caloric reduction diet, the body will respond by decreasing your T3 levels and by doing so decreases your metabolic rate. However, if your T3 levels have been increased, your caloric reduction is much more effectual at causing body fat loss.

Forskolin:

    Forskolin is a vasodilator, that is when blood vessels in the body become wider following the relaxation of the smooth muscle in the vessel wall. Forskolin; A labdane diterpene that's made by the plant Plectranthus barbatus. It's used to raise the levels of cyclic AMP (cAMP) in the study of the physiology of cells.

    Forskolin excites cell receptors by activating enzyme adenylyl cyclase and increasing the intracellular levels of cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate (cyclic AMP or cAMP). Cyclic AMP is a key signal transporter that is essential for the correct biological responses of cells to hormones and other extracellular signals. It is obligatory for cells to communicate and for the feedback control of the hormones.

      Animal Cuts

      Animal Cuts is known as a thermogenic and a thyroid supporter due to its massive ingredients list. These basic ingredients make up the classic E/C/A stack that most people find effective (up to 95% of all fat burners are based on this model). But the fact is, the E/C/A stack may not work well for everyone.

      Maybe you've been on the E/C/A stack for a while now. Maybe you drink a lot of coffee in the morning and soda throughout the day. The human body can easily become desensitized to the ingredients in this stack after prolonged use, thus reducing its effectiveness.

      For some athletes, the problem may even transcend thermogenesis. Your problem, for instance, might be releasing stored body fat. Or maybe you have a sluggish thyroid (thyroid hormones directly control your body's metabolism).

      Impaired neurotransmitter function can also make life difficult, encouraging bingeing. Perhaps your problem is not fat at all, but subcutaneous water weight. After all, you can come in with low Bodyfat levels, but if you're holding subcutaneous water, you're cooked.

Carbohydrate Blockers

Fat Blockers

Modified Chitosan is claimed to absorb anywhere up to three to seven times its weight in fat and oils.
