What I think about Fat Burners?
In my own opinion fat burners will work under the right circumstances and if the proper advice and education is given to the consumer regarding diet & exercise. Many people complain about gaining weight after using a product, typically this person maintained a certain healthy lifestyle while using the product got results then after it was gone went back to eating terrible food and not exercising, thus blaming the product for their lack of motivation. On the other hand I feel any exercise is good exercise so if someone is going to invest $30-$70 on a product that will get them into the gym and moving then perfect the product is serving a purpose. For someone who takes it and sits at home… you’re wasting your money. Just remember focus on your core diet & training the results will come.
