Despite all the fat burners released since a long time, it’s a sad fact that it’s 2016 and we’re still suffering from a rise of obesity rates.
However, that doesn’t mean that we should just give in to the situation now, should we? We absolutely shouldn’t.
So, for those of you who are inspired to change that aspect of your life by losing weight and burning fat, we recommend giving a boost to your endeavors with some supplements, fat burners in particular. Keeping that in mind, here are the top 3 fat burners of 2016:
Instant Knockout Fat Burner: Instant knockout has been making a name for itself and has made it to almost every list of the top fat burners out there. But we aren’t surprised about it especially after one considers that it uses some very premium ingredients and was originally meant to be used by MMA fighters.
Things like cayenne pepper and green tea extracts are something you’ve already heard of but using ingredients like glucomannan increases its effectiveness to a whole new level.
It aims to reduce fat through thermogenesis and increased metabolism along with some ‘helper’ nutrients like black pepper extract to help those ingredients work better.The website recommends having 4 pills a day but we specifically advise against that if you’ve just started with fat burning supplements.
The one thing where most people wouldn’t like this product despite its effectiveness is when it comes to the cost. $59 for a one month supply is simply too much, but when looked at objectively, this wasn’t meant for the consumer market in the first place.
Athletes who just wanted to get rid of some fat quickly are the ones that usually turned to the product. But, since the brand does have some value to it, we can suggest it to those for whom brand recognition is an important factor before buying a product.
Pros: Very effective, uses lots of natural ingredients
Cons: Need to consume 4 pills a day, costly.
Animal Cuts: Listing all of the ingredients that this fat burner has and explaining what each one does can take up an entire separate post by itself. After all, 40+ ingredients blended into a formulation that’s effective is no joke. Of course, with so many ingredients they are capable of helping you lose weight in seven ways:-
– Appetite control
– Cortisol blocking
– Nootropic support
– Diuretic properties
– Boosting metabolism
– Thyroid hormone support
Of course, many of those 40 ingredients are stimulants, so much so that some people have actually just stopped having coffee since regular doses of this supplement is enough to give them the energy they need during the day.
When you take it one step too far on the dosage, or haven’t consulted your doc before trying this, there is a possible chance of side effects and the supplement interfering with your medication. Those side effects are headaches, bowel problems, hot flashes and then some.
These don’t sound as dangerous, but even then it’s not something that’s good for you in the long run. One tub of the supplement has 42 packs and retails for ~$32 which is decent enough for a fat burner that’s so effective.
Pros: Very effective, burns fat in a multitude of ways
Cons: May cause hot flashes even in regular doses
Evolution Nutrition Lean mode: Finding a stimulant-free fat burning supplement nowadays is like finding a needle in a haystack (made out of fat burning supplement tubs).
However, out of the few options that don’t have any stimulants, we recommend going for the evolution nutrition lean mode fat burner since its other products have a good history along with the company that has made a name for itself.
Furthermore, the website mentions each and every ingredient that the product has along with a simple explanation of what every ingredient does (all of which is obviously true).
If you’re curious, it contains garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean extract, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), acetyl-l-carnitine and green tea leaf which are some pretty good ones and of course, are devoid of stimulants. But will that make it any less effective?
Not really, as many users can swear by it and if you combine it with something that can give you a bit of an energy boost before a workout, then that’s even better as the side effects aren’t really many since there’s no caffeine to prevent sleep or give you a high heart rate.
Since it doesn’t contain any stimulants, it’s priced pretty cheap too, at $22 for a 150-pill bucket. But, of course, you’d have to consider getting an energy source too.
Pros: Effective, affordable, little to no side effects
Cons: Isn’t as effective as others on the list
