Weight loss has been a common phenomenon throughout the history of time and odds are, you’ve probably seen numerous diet fads show up as ‘the next big thing’ every few years.

With top diet trends coming and going, the research to help with weight loss while offering little change in everyday life is hard to come by.

In fact, people have become so conditioned to think that there are magic pills that will melt any unwanted fat off of your body without having to exercise. I mean, it’s 2019 and anything is possible, right?

Wrong.

Contrary to popular belief, maintaining an active lifestyle and adhering to a health-conscious diet tailored to your body type while inducing a caloric deficit is the most effective approach toward reaching your weight loss goals.

There is just a slight problem that follows with the mental and physical aspect of cutting weight which can consist of increased hunger cravings, low energy levels, irritability, hormonal irregularities and more.

So, how can you help fight-off these problems?

Introducing supplements such as thermogenic fat burners can actually help reduce a number of negative drawbacks to help kick your fat loss journey into full swing.

Let’s take a look at what exactly thermogenic fat burners are and how they originated. Most importantly, we’ll dive into the benefits of using weight loss supplements that contain thermogenic properties.

 

What are Thermogenic Fat Burners?

 
The main importance of fat burners that contain thermogenic compounds are to increase internal core temperature by introducing the body to specific ingredients that cause a metabolic reaction, which in-turn, cause an increase in sweat production which can help lead to a decrease in water weight. [1]

Thermogenic based products also increase overall energy production based on the ingredient formulation and when combined with every day use, has been shown to be beneficial for weight loss. A 2016 double-blind study states that individuals who used a single dose thermogenic supplement experience increased metabolic rates which can lead to reduced fat mass and BMI. [2]

Another key importance of thermogenic fat burners is the staple point for appetite suppression to avoid abnormal hunger cravings when enduring a caloric deficit. By stimulating the central nervous system with a combination of ingredients, a decrease in overall hunger can be regularly present which helps to reduce the urge to snack on additional foods.

Fat burners with thermogenic compounds can also help burn calories much faster than normal by increasing your basal metabolic rate (BMR) or ‘speeding up’ the body’s metabolism which will determine the number of calories burned during a resting or active state. [3]

With all of the above information hitting the mainstream news outlets, thermogenic fat burners started to gain heavy traction within the United States as reports of obesity continued to grow past 32.2% of adult men and 35.5% of adult women [4], sparking the interest of trying additional dietary products to help with weight loss.

This new popular dietary product trend hit full circle around the early to mid 2000s, immediately gaining notoriety for the positive effects surrounding overall weight loss. In fact, a 2015 study on the consumption of thermogenic supplements, subjects were found to have maintained normal blood levels throughout the trial and did not experience any outstanding negative effects.[5] Thermogenic supplements were actually shown to be safe and effective for weight loss when combined with proper diet and exercise. [6]

There are many different fat burning products on the market today but having an understanding as to what will best react with your body will greatly benefit you during your process of looking for the best thermogenic fat burner.

Some of these thermogenic powders can actually be classified as pre-workouts due to their active energy formulations while retaining most thermogenic properties at the same time.

While this question has been on the top of many beginners’ minds, you can enhance fat loss further by taking this prior to fasted cardio to increase metabolic rate.

If you don’t do fasted cardio in the mornings, set a schedule for yourself on a consistent basis to take your fat burner of choice in the morning before your first meal of the day to help with energy and appetite suppression. Once your tolerance has been built up, take an additional serving later on during the day to maximize the effectiveness.
