Miguel Acwarden Miguel Acwarden La Habra Let's talk about supplements that have been proven to help people burn fat. Now there are many weight loss supplements in the marketplace, and the truth is that most of them don't work, and some of them are actually dangerous for you to take. But what I have seen work, and where the literature is the strongest, are in these three ingredients chromium, hydroxycitric acid which we call HCA and also decaffeinated green tea catechins. The catechins that are in decaffeinated green tea produce outstanding results. Let's talk about chromium first. When you do chromium supplementation, it stimulates insulin receptors, and the insulin receptor now works better. So that means you're going to secrete less insulin after a meal. This is a good thing, because now that your insulin levels are lower, your body will convert less carbohydrate into fat and so you won't store as much fat. The other thing is that insulin when it's working better, more of the protein you eat will get into your muscles, and the muscles can then lay down that protein in the muscle to increase your lean mass. And then, as your muscle mass or lean mass, increase, your metabolic rate starts to speed up. So if you're doing some exercise and taking chromium, you'll now see increased lean mass gains and a fast metabolism. This has been proven, even in college kids who were doing standard weight and strength training programs, when they added chromium supplementation to gain lean mass faster, they loss body fat and their metabolism speeded up, both in females and mails. The dosage for chromium is 200-400 mcg. This can really help to get fat metabolism into gear and speed up your metabolic rate.
