You must have heard about fat burners right? Those super pills which allow you to burn 10 pounds of fat every single week?

Not quite.

Fat burners are off-the-shelf supplements which are created with ingredients which are designed to aid your weight loss efforts. However, they absolutely do not replace a solid diet and workout plan.

In this article, I’m going to go over a few main pointers you should bear in mind when deciding whether or not to use a fat burner.

Fat Burner Tip 1: Keep It Natural!

There are tons of different types of fat burners out there, guys, and they all claim to do the same thing: burn an inhumane amount of fat from your body in a ridiculously short time frame.

The only problem is, they don’t always tell you what’s in the pills. Some are formulated using natural ingredients, and some are formulated using not-so-healthy chemicals and even some steroid-like compounds.

Before you buy a fat burner, please be sure to check the label and go for one that’s made up of 100% natural ingredients. This will be far better for your body in the long run.

Besides… if you use those dodgy chemicals in order to burn fat, the moment you stop taking it, all the fat will come straight back, anyway!

I would recommend this one if you’re unsure of where to look. It’s completely natural and it’ll put your mind at ease, knowing you’re not taking anything harmful.

Fat Burner Tip #2: Diet Is 80% Of The Equation

I think 80% is probably an understatement, to be fair.

Trust me when I tell you that a fat burner supplement will do absolutely nothing if you’re eating an unhealthy, sugar-filled diet.

A lot of the time, people look towards fat burners in order to get results, when they’ve never really stuck to a clean diet for any significant period of time. This is always the first thing you should do if you’re looking for weight loss.

Fat burners will enhance your weight loss results, but only if your diet is in check.

They have lots of cool perks – they increase your energy levels, they curb your appetite and cravings for junk food and they can even increase your overall metabolism, causing your body to burn more calories throughout the day.

However… if you are constantly looking in the fridge for a tub of ice cream, none of these amazing benefits will take place.

If you’re looking for somewhere to start with regards to your diet, check out our 30-Day Weight Loss Challenge. It takes the guesswork out of the equation so you can focus on the weight loss part.

Fat Burner Tip #3: Less Is More

If you do decide to buy a fat burner, please bear in mind that the recommended dosage on the label is there for a reason.

Not only is this the safest amount to take in order to minimise risk, but it’s usually the most effective, too.

I would recommend always starting with the lowest recommended dose and trying it out for at least two weeks. This way, you can track your results and ramp up to the higher recommended dose if necessary.

If your fat burner only states one specific serving size, do not exceed it!

Fat Burner Tip #4: Caffeine In High Doses Will Tire You Out

While caffeine is an extremely effective supplement when used at the right dosages, when it’s abused, it will actually cause you to fatigue and crash pretty damn quickly.

If you’re the kind of person who starts the day with a coffee and then drinks several more throughout the day, you’ll gain absolutely no benefit from a caffeine-based fat burner.

So while you may think that loading up on the caffeine will work wonders for your fat burning goals, just keep in mind that you will experience diminishing returns after a while.

Caffeine-based fat burners will have a far greater effect if you lay off the coffee at other times during the day.

Fat Burner Tip #5: Track Your Results!

The only way you’ll know whether your fat burner was truly effective or not is by tracking your results.

I always recommend that you give it at least two or three weeks using the same supplement before looking at the numbers and assessing how you’re getting on.

There are tons of different ways to track your progress. Whether you prefer to use the number on the scale, progress pictures or measurements, be sure to stay consistent with your methods and keep tabs on your results.

When you really track your results in this manner, it allows you to actually judge which supplements are effective and which ones aren’t.

Remember, not all fat burners work the same for everybody. Just because the one your friend used happened to give them great results, doesn’t mean that it’ll work the same for you. Track your results and find out which ones are really doing the trick for you.

That’s it!

I hope these five tips were useful and will enable you to make a more informed decision when you decide to invest your money in a fat burner supplement.
