What supplements burn fat cells?

None: Supplements, despite all the hoopla and hype, do not burn fat cells. The national institute of health (nih) states emphatically that it is a myth that food and/or supplements burn fats. Ignore dr. Oz and his weight loss product of the day. There is little good science to support many of his supplement recommendations. ...Read more

Hello,does amino acids helps in burning fat and loosing weight.pleas help?

No: We all take amino acids in our diet. Proteins are made of amino acids and proteins are present in grains, legumes, beans, nuts, milk etc. There is no substitute to reducing caloric intake and increasing physical activity. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Probably safe but ..: What do you think you are gaining by eating supplements and pills and powders. Why don't you just eat a good well rounded vegan diet and continue your exercise program. You cannot eat food and talk to it and direct it to your muscles. Your body will absorb what it does, then it goes to your liver where it is metabolized, then out to the rest of your body. ...Read more

Can you tell me are diet pills, fat burning powders really necessary in losing weight?

Can you tell me are diet pills, fat burning powders really necessary in losing weight?

Diet pill: My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting or a pill, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, ; start doing some cardiovascular exercise. Most physicians wouldn't suggest a diet pill. ...Read more
