Depending on the main components of a particular additive, the mechanism of their operation may differ. In most cases, the active substances in this type of sports nutrition help to reduce the amount of subcutaneous fat due to the following effects arising from their intake:

  1. improve metabolism
  2. reduce the absorption of fats and carbohydrates from the gastrointestinal tract,
  3. blocking the synthesis of fat cells,
  4. splitting of fatty acids.

Together, these factors, supplemented by physical exertion, and result in a decrease in fat mass in the body.

Note! By themselves, fat burners and other supplements are not a “magic pill” that will do everything for you all at once. They work only subject to diet and sports. Without them, it makes no sense to apply them.

What food is suitable for burning fat?

The range of sports nutrition for burning fat is represented by the following varieties of supplements: fat burners, thermogenics, appetite suppressants and food substitutes. Both western and domestic brands of sports nutrition produce them.

Before buying any supplement, you should pay special attention to its originality. Check with the seller where the goods come from. Carefully inspect the packaging: the label must be firmly glued, the lid tightly screwed, the expiration date of the product, the composition of the product and the coordinates of the manufacturer should be indicated. Pay attention to the GMP compliance icon. There should be no spelling errors in the text on the label. If at least one of these points is not met, with a probability of 99% you have a fake in your hands. This happens all the time, and even in large retail chains of sports nutrition stores. And the funniest thing in this situation is that often the seller himself does not even suspect that he is selling fake sports nutrition.

In no case do not use additives whose originality you are not sure about, since no one will give you a guarantee that the composition of the product matches the one written on the package. In the best case, you will eat a “dummy”. At worst, use a product of incomprehensible origin from the cheapest raw materials, which potentially carries a huge risk to your health, in some cases even containing substances of a narcotic nature.

8th place: Hemodrene For Her by Nutrabolics

It is enough to combine taking the drug with 2 to 3 workouts per week to get a sculpted figure, increase the efficiency of training processes, maintain muscle tone, get rid of subcutaneous fat and cellulite.

· Efficiency with minor physical exertion,

Intensive nutrition of muscle tissue.

Insomnia when taken before bedtime,

1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA)

There are also a number of stronger fat burners containing stimulants that affect the functioning of the central nervous system. They increase the production of dopamine and norepinephrine, which allows us to train harder and enjoy physical activity. Most often it is an extract of geranium oil (1,3-dimethylamylamine, DMAA), which has a strong energetic and euphoric effect on the body.

Geranium oil extract is banned by the world anti-doping agency and is prohibited by law in some European countries. In Russia, 1,3-dimethylamylamine is completely legal.

This substance is found in many pre-workout complexes and fat burners at a dosage of 25-75 mg per serving. These supplements really "unwind" your body, increase strength, improve the texture, burn excess fat, but there is also a dark side to the matter. With prolonged use, they cease to have such a powerful effect, and very often many athletes exceed the recommended dosage to get a powerful stimulating effect. This is not good: the cardiovascular system constantly has to work in a very difficult mode, the central nervous system is overexcited, appetite worsens, sleep is disturbed, potency is weakened.

Beta-Phenylethylamine (PEA)

Beta-phenylethylamine (PEA), which also has a psychostimulating effect, is often found in fat burners. Unlike geranium oil extract, PEA is not a natural remedy. It is obtained synthetically. Phenylethylamine enhances mental concentration and improves mood, which allows you to exercise more intensively. In sports supplements, it is used in a dosage of 400-500 mg.

In the Russian Federation, phenylethylamine in a concentration of above 15% is banned and listed as narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.

5th place: Nutrex Lipo-6

Fat burner is easily absorbed, accelerates metabolic processes, suppresses appetite, removes toxins. Fat burns evenly and quickly (in 2 - 2.5 months) even with non-intense training.

Easy swallowing of capsules,

· Action at the cellular level,

· Quick drying of muscles in all parts of the body.

Insomnia, nervousness and tachycardia in case of an overdose,

· High concentration of dyes in capsules.


Some manufacturers (whose legal status is in doubt) add ephedrine, which is a narcotic drug, to the fat burners and pre-workout complexes, the sale, production and storage of which entails criminal liability. The effect on the body of ephedrine is similar to amphetamine - it has a powerful psychostimulating effect, increases energy, increases the heart rate, suppresses appetite, and speeds up metabolism. All this leads to a quick loss of excess weight, and a satisfied buyer runs to the store for a new can of fat burner, once again breaking the law and risking criminal liability. But even if we discard the legal side of the issue, then the use of ephedrine for fat burning can hardly be called advisable. In addition to weight loss, ephedrine leads to tachycardia, arrhythmias, hypertension, angina pectoris, nausea, excessive sweating, insomnia, attacks of aggression, hyperglycemia, disturbed salt balance in the body, etc.

Think about it, is it worth losing weight with drugs containing ephedrine, serious health problems, addiction and the risk of being in prison?

When buying fat burners, beware of fakes that can cause serious harm to the body. A quality product cannot be cheap. Remember that caffeine-containing drugs are not compatible with analgesics and tonic drinks.


This type of supplement works on the principle of increasing thermogenesis, which leads to the consumption of more calories in training. The body's heat production increases, body temperature rises, the body removes a large amount of water. In addition to the main components like caffeine or green tea extract, which are found in almost all fat burners, thermogenics also contain naringin and tyramine, which are responsible for the breakdown of glucose in the body and the production of adrenaline.

Thermogenics can be classified as “light” fat burners, they do not overload the central nervous system with large doses of stimulants and do not contain creatine, designed to increase strength due to the accumulation of ATP in cells.

Keep in mind that this type of sports nutrition for burning fat is more suitable for women and girls who want to prepare for the beach season or just lose a few extra pounds.

Appetite suppressants

This type of supplementation (also called anorexigens or anorectics) leads to faster fat burning by suppressing the center of hunger and activating the saturation center located in the hypothalamus.

The main active ingredients:

  • fluoxetine
  • sibutramine,
  • lorcaserin
  • dexfenfluramine,
  • their analogues.

Studies confirm the effectiveness of these supplements. However, doctors also indicate their side effects and possible harm to health: damage to heart valves, heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, myocardial fibrosis, insomnia, arrhythmia, etc.

Appetite suppressants can be bought not only in the sports nutrition store, but also in a regular pharmacy. They are often bought by women who do not have enough time for sports, they hope to lose extra pounds by reducing the amount of food consumed.

However, due to the expensive cost and potential danger of these supplements to health, it is recommended that you simply make adjustments to the diet and add physical activity to your daily life - the result will not be worse, and the health benefits will be much greater.

Food substitutes

This is a group of supplements produced by leading brands of sports nutrition designed to fully replace meals. It can be a cocktail, which should be diluted on water in a shaker or blender, or a bar containing all the necessary nutrients.

Their advantages are obvious:

  • the amount of all necessary micro and macro elements is already balanced,
  • few calories
  • convenience of storage
  • speed of preparation and consumption of food.

The composition of food substitutes includes a complex protein containing proteins with different absorption rates, complex carbohydrates derived from natural products, unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. They have only one minus - an excessively high price.

Food substitutes are well suited for those who sometimes do not have the opportunity to make a full meal due to strong employment. This will have a much better effect on your weight loss or gaining lean muscle mass than if you are having a quick bite to eat fast food, sweets or flour products.

Side effects of substitutes can occur in the form of disruption of the digestive system only in case of individual intolerance to one or another component that is part of the product.

Fat burner of which company to choose

Buying fat burners today is not difficult, but choosing quality products is not always possible. Many manufacturers of sports nutrition use inexpensive raw materials and do not comply with the cleaning technology, and as a result, the buyer receives a low-quality product, which may be not only ineffective, but also unsafe.

We have prepared a rating of the leading sports nutrition brands that produce time-tested drugs for weight loss and weight loss:

4. Universal Nutrition

5. Innovative labs

The products of these companies have long won the trust of customers around the world. The product meets European and international quality standards, so the cost of drugs is often high.


L-carnitine (levocarnitine) is a natural substance found in dairy products, fish and red meat. It is not a fat burner, but its use during weight loss is very effective. Its benefit lies in the fact that it transports part of the adipose tissue to the mitochondria of the muscles, where it is converted into energy (ATP) and expended during strength training. In addition, L-carnitine has a number of other useful functions, including: increasing mental and physical activity, increasing stress resistance, reducing bad cholesterol and improving myocardial metabolism. It is also a powerful antioxidant. L-carnitine is part of most fat burners, but is also sold as a separate supplement in all sports nutrition stores. It is recommended for use at a dosage of about 2 grams per day.

Compatibility of different types of food

Many athletes believe that they can achieve a faster result by simultaneously consuming several types of weight loss supplements. This is not entirely true when it comes to fat burners or thermogenics. The principle of their work is approximately the same and the active substances in most additives are almost the same. Therefore, you should not use several types of fat burners at the same time. In addition, due to this, you can exceed the recommended dosage, which will lead to unpleasant consequences in the form of headache, nausea, insomnia or increased blood pressure due to an overdose of caffeine and other substances that have a stimulating effect. For the same reason, it is not recommended to combine the intake of fat burners and pre-workout complexes.

Fat burners and similar supplements can easily be combined with the following types of sports nutrition:

  • protein mixtures
  • vitamin and mineral complexes
  • BCAA
  • complex amino acids
  • glutamine
  • other additives that do not interfere with fat burning processes and do not contain a large number of calories (for example, gainers).

Operating principle

There are several types of fat burners, each of which has a different effect on the body. However, the general principle of action of all drugs is to stimulate the processes that contribute to the process of fat breakdown, and enhance metabolism.

The following changes occur as a result of the use of fat burners:

  • excess fluid is removed from the body,
  • metabolic rate increases
  • decreased appetite
  • fats are absorbed more slowly, and the splitting of the existing fat layer is more active.

  • increase in overall activity of the body,
  • normalization of the liver, thyroid gland and cardiovascular system.

Exceeding the dosage, especially long, is fraught with problems such as:

  • the occurrence of addiction to fat burners,

Types of Fat Burners

Depending on the principle of action, all fat-burning drugs are usually divided into three groups. They differ not only in the mechanism itself, but also in the degree of impact on the body. However, this does not mean at all that a strong fat burner for men will have a noticeable effect without training. Rather, it will lead to health problems. The drugs that break down the fat layer work only in combination with diet and physical activity.

Fat burners for men are divided into the following groups.

Features of the male body and the effect of fat burners

Most fat burners for men from sports nutrition contain a mixture of stimulants and herbswhich can increase body temperature and increase calorie intake. They can also suppress appetite or release adrenaline and increase metabolic rate, although this effect is very small.

What are fat burners and how can they help you fight weight loss?

These are special drugs that reduce the amount of fat in the body. They accelerate the breakdown of fatty acids and activate metabolic processes. In addition, they remove excess water and reduce appetite due to the release of energy during the breakdown of adipose tissue. Fat burning is part of the body’s natural metabolism, fat burners just make this process faster. Often this term is also called all drugs that block hunger and come with food fats.

If you are tired of fighting overweight without seeing results, then using quality fat burners will be a great way to get the process off the ground. The best results can be achieved by combining three components:

  • low calorie diet
  • active workouts
  • the use of quality fat burners.

Additionally, you can use:

Fat burners

The official name for this group is thermogenics. The principle of their action is to increase body temperature - this leads to an acceleration of metabolism, and, as a result, a more active breakdown of fat cells. In addition, thermogenics reduce appetite.

The composition of fat burners most often includes such active ingredients:

  • caffeine,
  • choline
  • deoxylimonic acid
  • green tea extract
  • guarana extract.

Not very effective separately, in the aggregate, these substances have a significant effect on the processes of splitting fat.

Thermogenics are not too effective individually

Thermogenics have contraindications. These drugs can not be taken with arrhythmias, tachycardia, other heart problems or thyroid diseases.


Most Fat Supplements contain a mixture of ingredients, with the two most common - caffeine and green tea.

  1. Caffeine can help fat loss by binding to fat cells and increasing fat burning,
  2. whereas compounds in green tea, known as catechins, can help with increasing metabolic rate.

The best ways for men to quickly burn fat - this is less than they burn, exercise two to three times a week, eat protein-rich foods and add cardio loads.

Lipotropic Fat Burners

Preparations of this group are absolutely harmless and have minimal effect on the body. The basis of lipotropics is vitamin-like substances that accelerate the process of fat breakdown in the body. The safety of fat burners of this group is explained by the fact that their effect on the body is limited by a slight increase in the intensity of natural metabolic processes. In this case, the body does not experience stress and overload.

One of the most famous drugs in this group is L-carnitine. In fact, it is a protein that is produced in the body. Its main function is to transport fats to the mitochondria of cells, where they are split with the subsequent release of energy. An additional intake of L-carnitine allows you to slightly speed up the process of transporting fats. And this applies not only to the existing fat layer, but also to those fats that enter the body with food.

In addition to L-carnitine, lipotropics also often include the following ingredients:

  • lipolic acid
  • Vitamin B6
  • selenium,
  • caffeine,
  • extracts of various herbs.

All lipotropic fat burners have an almost identical composition, and are tablet or capsule formulations.

The drugs of this group are absolutely harmless.

The similarities and differences between fat burners for women and men

Do women fat burners differ from similar drugs for men? Compared to the male body, the female body has a different muscle structure and a wider layer of subcutaneous adipose tissue. When losing weight in women, fats are oxidized. And in men, mainly carbohydrates. Therefore, the female and male bodies lose weight in different ways.

However, fat burners for women and for men are very similar. In general, they are designed for both. Otherwise, consumers would suspect the active use of hormonal components, but this is not so. The only difference is that fat burners for weight loss in men contain an increased amount of two components:

  • catecholamine, which stimulates the release of adrenaline - the hormone responsible for the emotion of fear,
  • norepinephrine responsible for the emotion of rage.

For the male body, portions of such substances in the blood are more familiar, but for women they are undesirable, as women are more emotional and susceptible to hormonal influences.

How do fat burners work for men?

  1. First, they are directed to increase metabolic rate, which helps burn more calories during exercise and daily exercise.
  2. Secondly, they are aimed at increase your energy levels, which helps to increase the intensity and duration of training, and this will lead to great results.
  3. Finally, many fat burners that work well include ingredients designed to overcome hunger and cravings to certain high-calorie foods.

Usually, the maximum rate is 2 capsules. One is taken after a meal in the morning, and the second before a workout in 30-40 minutes. In the afternoon, it is not recommended to take the drug., because it can not only increase pressure, but also disturb sleep.

Remember! Although these supplements can help you lose weight, they are intended to be used in combination with regular exercise and diet. Without a regular workout, you simply will not see the results of fat loss that you expect. Fat burners can help you lose weight, but they cannot do all the work for you!

Herbal ingredients are often added as appetite suppressants that help maintain your diet.
Some fat burners include dietary fiber. It helps regulate digestion, improves bowel function, mobilizes fat and more.

There are special thermogenics that increase body temperature and burn more calories, which add ingredients such as cayenne pepper, capsaicin. Vitamins, zinc, yohimbe are added to increase energy and improve overall health.

Of course, there are other ingredients included in fat burners for weight loss, for example, the CLA complex (caffeine, ephedra extract, aspirin). The ingredients described above are the most common and most studied in clinical trials.

Fat blockers

Preparations of this group, which are also called adrenomimetics, are the most powerful fat burners for men. The principle of their action is based on increased excretion of adrenaline or norepinephrine. Both of these hormones play an important role in the process of fat burning.

To understand the effects of adrenomimetics, it is necessary to take into account that there are two types of receptors in the body that regulate the process of fat burning. Α receptors block this process, and β receptors stimulate it. Different drugs from the group of fat blockers act differently. Some of them, for example, Clenbuterol, additionally stimulate β-receptors. Others, such as Yohimbine, inhibit the activity of α-receptors. Regardless of the method of exposure to the body, all these drugs significantly accelerate the process of fat burning.

Adrenomimetics have many side effects associated with effects on adrenaline production.

Drugs that stimulate β-receptors usually cause consequences such as:

  • increased anxiety
  • cardiopalmus,
  • tremor.

Fat burners that suppress the work of α-receptors have the following side effects:

  • drowsiness,
  • dizziness,
  • vasodilation and, as a consequence, a decrease in blood pressure.

Many side effects have adrenomimetics
