Ephedra and ephedrine, (the alkaloids of ephedra which are the byproduct of ingestion and assimilation) are pretty much banned for weight loss use. It may still be found in fat loss supplements in the UK, though usually in fairly small amounts, that does NOT guarantee any weight loss. However, supplement researchers have discovered a way to create a synthetic version of ephedrine called Synephrine/bitter orange that is extremely efficient, stable, and regulated. It works very similar to ephedra and without the caveats of dangerous side effects associated with it. We recommend a Synephrine product Phen375 and/or if you are looking for even better thermogenic fat burner, we rcommend you check out Instant Knockout, that also contains 'glucomannan'.
Breaking the myths of traditional fasting, Michael Mosley came up with a diet plan, introducing intermittent fasting, to people whose obesity levels continue to soar, even after trying standard dietary advice. Fast Diet is a 5:2 plan that suggests the dieter eat for five days and reduce calories to 500 for two days. Scientific studies are a testimony to the benefits of fasting. This is a new approach to dieting, which naturally helps to relax your body, detoxify your system, and trigger fat burning. Lots of success stories and good opinions can be found being published about this diet, leaving some subtle realities unearthed! Make sure before you embark on the journey of 5:2 dieting, to be aware of calorie restriction that it chains you in. Trying this plan, and then embracing it as a lifestyle habit, has been difficult for many. We believe there are better and more flexible, dieter friendly plans out there, which focus on intermittent fasting as the key to weight loss. We recommend Eat Stop Eat program over Fast Diet.
Despite very exciting and promising CLA animal studies, CLA pills have come up very short in delivering weight-loss results to humans. Besides, "eating more fat to lose fat" concept holds more true in the case of paleo based diets like Primal Diet, instead of a high-fat content diet pill like Ab Cuts. Their Sleek & Lean version containing Raspberry Ketones is slightly better, but still it's basically a 2700 mg proprietary blend of mediocre weight loss ingredients and the company is NOT transparent about the quantities of the ingredients used. User reviews on Ab Cuts are mixed and the products seem overpriced. We recommend Instant Knockout over this, that has a better combination of ingredients - fat blocker like glucomannan, and thermogenic ingredients. Instant Knockout is from a reputed company, lists out its ingredients in precise details, endorsed by several people from the fitness community and has lots of favorable user reviews. So, it beats Ab Cuts, in the area of transparency and credibility.
Clenbuterol or Clen is one of the most promosing weight loss supplement out there, and has been used by several celebrities. However, it's NOT a miracle pill. It strengthens your physical stamina and works both at the fat cell and the muscle tissue. It has fat burning and thermogenic properties. But, users still have to eat healthy, and do fat-burning workouts to fully make use of it. Besides, side effects like high blood pressure, insomnia, cramps, headaches need to be dealt with. We recommend legal version of clen and if you are looking for even better product, that also includes 'glucomannan' apart from fat burning and thermogenic properties of Clen, we recommend you check out Instant Knockout.
Hydroquinone is an effective remedy for people battling with skin darkening and stubborn spots of any kind. Available in several brand names like Zo Melamin, Melalite forte, it contains hydroquinone as the primary ingredient for bleaching your skin and complexion correcting. It is clinically proven to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, melasma (sun damage), or chloasma (darkened skin caused by hormonal changes). Though, it is proven for its efficiency, "Hydroquinone" still remains a controversial chemical when it comes to scientific research. It is still not clear what side effects it may cause with long term usage. As a topical treatment for lightening your skin, it is not recommended to be used by people with sensitive skin because it is bound to cause some irritation. Many safer alternatives are available in the market, which are gentle on skin, yet equally successful for facial skin lightening. We recommend Illuminatural 6i and SkinBright over Hydroquinone 4% creams like Zo melamin, Melalite forte etc.
Overall, Iaso Tea is a good detox tea that comes with all the benefits of detox and having a clean colon and improved digestion. However, user reviews reveal that the claims of weight loss are stretched too far. This tea is a basic form of a detox really and there are plenty of other products that can do the same trick. Besides, since it contains laxatives, people might experience certain side effects including diarrhea and constipation. Regarding weight loss, to REALLY shed pounds with Iaso tea, you will have to drink lots of tea, to take in its superfoods ingredients in huge quantities. Drinking a lot of tea would cause you to have lots of energy and raise your metabolism up during the day and will cause appetite suppression. But, this will come with very serious side effects like feeling jittery, raised blood pressure levels, etc. Basically all those side effects of drinking excess tea. We recommend Smoothie Diet for weight loss, over Iaso tea. Smoothie Diet is a sustainable way to lose weight with healthy superfoods, by making them a part of your diet. That should be a lifelong strategy, unlike fad diets like tea detox which do more harm than good. If you are looking for a "green tea" based thermogenic fat loss product, we recommend Instant Knockout.
The Blood sugar solution (10 day detox) book by Dr hyman. is a good solution for people who are perplexed and also reluctant to embrace any diet plan. Being very comprehensive and target oriented it aims at increasing the body’s ability to naturally burn fat. It aims at rejuvenating the metabolism in a way that a person has more energy, better sleep, shreds off unwanted pounds and maintains optimum insulin levels. It provides daily meal plans, recipes that help to curb cravings while feeling good, acquiring lifestyle habits that help to relax and de-stress. However, it might not be an impeccable solution to your problems! Those lacking motivation may feel the diet plan difficult to stick to! While one may also get bored and feel the need for newer recipes to stay on the diet plan. We recommend more enhanced and and comprehensive diet plans like 21 days sugar detox, which provide daily reminders and amazing, unparalleled support.
Herbalife weight loss kits are known as the quick and effortless weight loss system with the use of various protein shakes and the various supplements the company offers. Overall, we believe this weight loss system doesn't provide a good value for money and the cost is on the higher side for most people. Probably because it is marketed through MLM and your consultant/seller takes a good cut in between. There are several user reviews that claim they still felt hungry while using Herbalife shakes and many users didn't like the taste. We recommend IdealShape Diet plans over Herbalife 30 day Ultimate weight loss kit. IdealShake is the best tasting meal replacement shake out there, been in business since 6 years and has more powerful hunger-blocking ingredients. If you are looking for a more natural, sustainable dieting strategy, we also recommend Smoothie Diet.
Overall, it's a great green juice and better than most of its competitors. We like Organifi Green Juice even though it is a one-dimensional product that only contains the superfoods and leaves out probiotics and digestive enzymes. In our analysis, Athletic Greens came out on top as the best all-round greens powder. It has even more diverse ingredients and is more nutrient-dense than Organifi.
Overall, a decent carb and fat blocker, but all the ingredients used are currently at levels too low to have effects similar to what we've seen in the scholarly research on those ingredients. And they are charging a hefty price for this low quantity of ingredients. Combine this with the markeitng claim that you can eat whatever carbs you want to eat, and still NOT get fat, raises some serious question on the product. All users are different and certainly will experience different weight-loss results, but workout in combination with a healtier diet and supplements is a better approach. We recommend Instant Knockout and Phen375 over It works fat fighter. Instant Knockout has fat blocking ingredient glucomannan as well as other thermogenic ingrdients, that makes it top of the line weight loss supplement. If you are specifically looking for fiber to lose weight, we recommend Smoothie Diet.
