Over the past few weeks I have had quite a few messages asking me about thermogenic fat burners. For those of you who are still in the dark about the thermogenic effect on food and thermogenic fat burners, I have explained this in a nutshell here.
When you eat food, your body does more than just add calories, it also burns them. Digestion takes energy and therefore burns calories, which is also known as the “thermogenic effect of food.”
This effect accounts for five to ten percent of your metabolic rate, so you want to make sure to eat the right foods that stimulate the most thermogenic effect. Protein has the most thermogenic effect of all nutrients (30% of the calories from protein are used during digestion). So if you eat 100 calories of protein, 30 calories will be burned through digestion leaving you with a net 70 calories. The fiber and complex carbs in vegetables will also force your body to do some extra work.
In relation to this, thermogenic fat burners such as Gaspari’s Phenorex help aid this thermogenic effect. Thermogenic fat burners raise thr body temperature anabling it to burn unwanted fat. This fat is converted into energy. Some thermogenic fat burners also act as appetite suppressants and work by sending chemical signals to the brain to suppress the appetite. Most of the fat burners contain certain common ingredients which work together.
These are: Alpha Lipoic acid; Banan Leaf extract; Cayenne; Citrus Aurantim; CLA: Coleus Forskohlii; Garcinia Cambogia; Guggul Extract; Green Tea Extract; Hoodia /P57; Konjac Root; Mucana Puriens; Naringin; Potassium Pyruvate; Spirulina; White Willow Bark.
So if you’re struggling to shift that stubborn layer of fat, thermogenic fat burners may be an option for you, otherwise plenty of protein, complex carbs and vegetables also help!
Feel free to ask any more questions and I will do my best to help you : )
