Bio Hacking | Weight loss supplements

Weight loss supplementsĀ 101

Learning what basic components make up weight loss supplements, can make or break your ability to purchase quality supplements. This is going to be a quick article detailing what you need to do in order to make smart purchasing decisions. Alternatively, you can buy and experiment with some of these, supplements, rather than buying a brand name fat burner.

Are fat burners or Weight loss supplements worth it?

I get asked this question often, are fat burners or weight loss supplements, worth it? My short answer is it depends. I’ve seen people take weight loss supplements and barely exercise let alone change their diets. Did those people get results? I’ve seen mavericks who in this niche population who believe they don’t need to exercise lose weight, just from implementing a weight loss supplement. But the opposite is true as well. I’ve seen people not get results, and its largely to blame on the fact that they didn’t change their diets or exercise at all.

Now on the other side of the coin I’ve seen people change everything and lose weight rather quickly, and people who despite changing everything didn’t lose weight as fast as weight loss supplement companies would like you to believe.

Where does Bio hacking come into play.

I’m appropriating the word bio hacking here. The reason I am doing that is so that you understand, how each individual ingredient plays a role in weight loss supplements. Often times many weight loss supplements are under-dosed. Meaning they may contain the ingredients necessary to lose weight. But not at an adequate dosage.

The term bio hacking simply means, using the ingredients I will list below as a tool to modify what you are currently doing. Thus being able to induce weight loss, and understand the how and why things must be done in a certain format.

I want to take the mystery out of the basics of weight loss, so that a majority of people can see results as fast as possible. There will still be outliers with medical conditions the may require additional help. This blueprint should get the ball rolling for a majority of you guys.

Using Weight loss Supplements to bio hack our bodies.

I will now briefly outline the main ingredients found in weight loss supplements, that you can purchase, as stand alone products. You can take them in conjunction with each each other, or one at a time, to see what yields the best results for you.

Caffeine

Caffeine is a staple in all stimulant based weight loss supplements. It functions as a thermogenic, and fat burner.

A thermogenic, basically raises the body’s temperature, which can result in weight loss. In terms of being a fat burner, it breaks down triglycerides and into fatty acids, which our bodies then use for fuel.

Always start on the low end in terms of dosages, you would start off a 100 mg and slowly add 50-100 mg, over time, its recommended that you don’t go over 450 mg.

Yohimbine

Yohimbine is something I would consider a lot more aggressive than caffeine. It’s mostly used by men, as well. Some use Yohimbine, as a libido enhancer. Outside of that interesting fact.

It is primarily used by the weight loss supplement companies, as an active ingredient in many products.

I’ve also seen women use Yohimbine , and lose a significant amount of weight from it. Yohimbine however, due to its aggressive nature should be used sparingly, in a cycle format. Meaning either 2 weeks on two weeks off, or a month on and a month off. Yohimbine is not something that should be used long term.

5-HTP

5-HTP is primarily used to reduce carb cravings which can be especially beneficial, during a weight loss journey. 5-HTP can even be useful for those who a looking to cut for a bodybuilding show. It even has cognitive functions as well.
