Loss Supplements - Fat Burner Reviews and Comparisons (2)
Hydroxycut has been around for quite
a few years, and has produced consistent fat loss
results for most of its users. The original version
which was based on the ECA stack has long been discontinued. Muscletech Hydroxycut has been re-formulated more times than I can count, and this line of fat burners is constantly updating - releasing new products, and discontinuing old products. See below for which Hydroxycut products are currently available:
Lean System 7 is another top rated fat burner that has been around for a long time. It's based on various stimulants such as yerba mate, guarana, citrus aurantium, and several other ingredients. Many of the ingredients included in this diet pill have various scientific research showing benefits for weight loss and control (for example, yerba mate, citrus aurantium). Lean System 7 helps to enhance metabolism, burn body fat, and increases calorie burning. To learn more about it, please read our review of LS7 here.
Both Stacker 2 and Stacker 3 were both based on the ECA stack previously. They have been around for a long time, and have been reformulated several times as well. You can read our reviews of these diet pills here:
Cellucor D4 Thermal Shock is a another stimulant based fat burner that targets fat deposits, increases calorie burning, supresses appetite. Some of its key ingredients include embelic myrobalan extract, yohimbine, and evodiamine. As with all stimulant based diet pills, there are potential side effects. Some possible side effects include faster heart rate, more sweating, higher blood pressure, dizziness, and nausea. As always, users are encourage to be careful and test their tolerance using just 1/2 dose at the start. Read more of our Cellucor D4 review here.
Weight Loss Supplements That Don't Work!
are countless fat loss supplements on the market. Some work great, while others make bold claims, but do not work at all. Two of these include chitosan and chromium picolinate - both of which we have written about in detail, providing numerous scientific studies showing that they do not work as claimed.
Chromium Picolinate is often promoted as a supplement that can help you burn fat and increase lean mass. While it may appear to have some benefits for suppressing appetite, all the research that we've found indicates no support for its claims for helping with weight loss. You can read our detailed article on Chromium Picolinate article here.
Chitosan Diet Pills
If you really want to know, Chitosan
is not an effective fat burner supplement. Studies
have shown that it does NOT absorb fat and prevent
it rom getting into your body. So this one fat burner
you can do without. (Score 1/5) This is something that's derived from shellfish, claiming to dissolve and block fats in your stomach. It also claims to trap fat, and help you reduce levels of body fat. However, scientific research has proven otherwise, and there is no support for the various claims being made for Chitosan as an effective weight loss agent. Click

Non-Stimulant Based Supplement That Works!
While chromium picolinate and chitosan mentioned above doesn't work to help with weight loss as shown in studies, we can recommend one that IS backed up by scientific studies to help with fat loss and lean mass gains.
This supplement is conjugated linoleic acid or CLA for short. Tonalin CLA is not a stimulant base diet pill. It is well know for its benefits for aiding fat loss and lean mass gains - leading to improved body composition. This is actually something that is backed up by extensive research and studies. various studies have found it to promote fat loss, help lean mass gains, increase energy expenditure, help with region-specific fat loss, and even help prevent holiday weight gain!
CLA supplements has been gaining
more and more recognition. Our site has reviews of CLA for quite
sometime, and have received many positive user feedbacks!
Unlike other weight loss products, CLA is not a fat
burner, but a dietary supplement, with no side effects.
I won't go into details about it here, since we have a 3 part series detailing its many benefits and noting various studies.
