Fat Burners – do they work?
I looked at these for a while, then I looked at the ingredients and looked into their benefits.
Most of them have:
Omega 3 (or 3-6-9)
some form of pepper
So I started taking omega 3-6-9 tablets and eating more oily fish + ground flax on my porridge
Drinking more black strong coffee in the mornings (which suppresses my appetite until lunchtime)
drinking green tea in the afternoon and taking green tea extract tablets in the morning – more caffeine)
and I always have a lot of pepper.
Also been taking whey protein isolate after weight training.
Lost a couple of lbs last week, and have steadily lost 1 stone since January, but I am weight training & running 2/3 times a week, karate twice a week, & cycling 8 miles a day. I have almost doubled my bench press and squats in 2 weeks too, so working for me so far.Posted 5 years agojoao3v16Member

The answer to fat loss is a lifestyle change, i.e. diet and exercise.
‘Fat burn’ pills might work (don’t believe/trust the hype personally) but you’re paying an absolute fortune for them, plus once you’ve completed the course of pills you’ve still got to make lifestyle changes to maintain your weight … otherwise you’ll just get fat again … so why not just do this in the first place … i.e. refer to my earlier comment – “lifestyle change, i.e. diet and exercise”Posted 5 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
Is there any evidence that “fat burners” like that below actually work? See loads of them around. I love a placebo as much as the next man, but I’d rather not be popping pills if there’s no point to it.Posted 5 years agocompositeSubscriber
I find those SIS Burner gels quite good for longer rides; 6-7 hours or longer. I don’t use them for weight loss though per se more for the help to metabolise fat for energy and normally I wouldn’t have any more than 2 in that period of time mixed with other “proper” food. When I say 6-7 hours I mean 6-7 hours actual riding, not 3 hours riding and 3 hours talking shit with your mates and eating flapjacks. 😛Posted 5 years ago
