Does Calorad Work?
First off let me compliment you on your awesome articles! I truly love reading them! They are extremely informative and you really know your stuff! In fact, since you are so knowledgeable in the field of nutrition and bodybuilding, I am hoping you can give me a detailed response to a question I was asked the other day. A fellow co-worker of mine wanted to know if she should take a supplement called Calorad to shed some extra pounds. She heard a radio advertisement and bought the stuff in hopes that it really does work. Unfortunately, the only fat burning supplements I know about are thermogenics, so I could not answer her question. Have you heard of the Calorad? They have a web site for it. Could you take a quick look at their claims and the ingredients and let me know your personal thoughts and opinions? Thank you so much!! This will be highly educational for me too! :)
This question sparked my interest instantaneously. I had never even heard of Calorad until this woman asked me about it. Always willing to learn I looked into this product without being biased. I think that in theory this product has its arguments. It can work somewhat theoretically, but as far as being the answer to your friend's prayers and the breakthrough product of the century, well, NO!
Understand this, I am a bodybuilder and bodybuilders are full of neat little secrets and tricks. We use what are often overlooked and underestimated items to our advantage. I believe that if this doctor really found such a great product that the bodybuilding world would know about it. This product is going along with a similar claim to the chitosan properties. It should achieve some type of fat binding in the body and allow for water to out process it. This is not the only thing that the product claims to do but of all of its claims I believe that this may be the only one that had great hope and even saying that is giving it wishful hope.
Personally I would not buy this product. Here are a few of the things that must be done when taking Calorad. One must be cautious of becoming pregnant because the possibility of toxins released from lipolysis (fat breakdown) entering the blood stream may negatively affect the fetus or lymph systems. You must also go to bed right away. The information page states that Calorad is most powerful in the initial 90 minutes of sleep. Therefore, every second that you spend talking, watching television, reading, etc... will reduce the effects of Calorad. So basically, taking Calorad should be the last thing that you do every night. Another restriction is eating or drinking. With the exception of water, anything consumed will interrupt Calorad's effectiveness. The disclaimer states some interesting information as well. It states that the FDA did not evaluate the statements. It also stated that the information provided on the site is solely for educational purposes. It states that the information is not medical advice or a substitute for a professional service. The disclaimer admits that we are individuals and we are different, the testimonies listed on the site are what happened to those people only. The information provided in the testimonials is general and is not specific to all. With all of these restrictions I think I would rather stick with a diet and exercise program rather than rely on a restrictive product as such. It may have some benefits but I believe that they are far fetched.
