At some stage in our lives most of us will go through a period where we want to lose some excess body weight. In this post we’ll be looking at the best diet pills to lose weight fast. Of course diet and exercise play pivotal roles in accomplishing this, but sometimes that stubborn fat needs a bit of encouragement to disappear; and we don’t want to spend years trying to lose that weight. We want results fast! Instant gratification is the theme of the modern world. That’s where diet and fat burning pills can really come into their own. Of course they are only a supplement to maintaining a healthy diet and doing regular exercise, but they certainly play a role in speeding up the process.
This pill is a recent release onto the market and, according to results, sales of PhenQ have been huge! I rate it number one on the list because it targets a number of areas of weight loss all in one.
- PhenQ burns fat by increasing metabolism
- PhenQ prevents new fats deposits forming
- It’s an appetite suppressor
- It boosts energy levels
The unique combination of ingredients found in PhenQ are what give it its edge over the competition. The ingredients are as follows:
- Capsimax Powder
- Calcium Carbonate
- Chromium Picolinate
- L-Carnitine Furmarate
There are awesome benefits to taking PhenQ, such as blocking fat from being stored, suppressing the appetite so you don’t over eat, increasing metabolism to burn off fat, increased energy, improved moods and all round faster weight loss.
Rated number two on the list, Chlorogen 800 is a product manufactured by the company, Leading Edge Health. It has been on the market for some time now, but really came to prominence when featured on the popular Dr Oz TV show. It’s main ingredient is chlorogenic acid (CGA); a proven fat burner.
CGA is derived from green coffee beans. Being a powerful antioxidant, this substance has the ability to slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream. This gives the body far less opportunity to store fat by allowing sugars to be absorbed by the liver. The caffeine component of Chlorogen 800 enhances fat burning by speeding up the body’s metabolic rate.
The ingredients of Chlorogen 800 are:
- Green Coffee Bean Extract
- Magnesium Stearate
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
Clinical studies carried out over a 22 week period showed that those taking Chlorogen 800 lost, on average, 10% of overall body weight.
There used to be a weight loss drug around called Phentermine. While it was effective in burning fat, it came with many adverse side effects and was consequently banned from sale. Phen375 was produced to emulate the fat burning effects of Phentermine, but with none of the nasty side effects, and using only natural ingredients. Speaking of which, the ingredients list is below:
- Calcium Carbonate
- Citrus Aurantium
Phen375 works as both an appetite suppressant and a fat burner. This mix of metabolic stimulants and appetite suppressants work in combination to burn that fat off and keep it off, and results have shown that it works fast when combined with a sensible diet and regular exercise regime.
HCA Fit Garcinia Cambogia
Garcinia Cambogia has been on the market for quite some time now and is another weight loss supplement that came to prominence when featured on popular American TV shows. I’ve personally used Garcinia myself to remove stubborn body fat and I was happy with the results.
The active ingredient found in this natural plant is HCA, or Hydroxycitric Acid. What this acid does is twofold. It raises serotonin levels in the brain to work as an appetite suppressant, and it also has the capacity to block citrate lyase; an enzyme in the body that likes to store fat from starches and sugars. It is particularly effective against that old enemy to a lean physique: Carbohydrates. Once again it helps prevent the body from storing unused carbs as unwanted fat.
The stronger the concentration of HCA per capsule, the more effective this pill is when it comes to fat loss. I also recommend taking more than the dosage suggested on the container as the results will be quicker.
An all-natural herbal weight loss supplement, Zotrim combines the ingredients of three South American plants to achieve results.
- Yerba Mate
Combined with Guarana, Zotrim also contains caffeine to help burn fat, while the other ingredients work as appetite suppressants by slowing down the digestion and absorption of food in the stomach. This leaves the supplement taker feeling fuller for much longer and leading to less food intake.
As an added benefit, when you exercise on Zotrim, the supplement gives the body the ability to derive more energy from burning fat cells, making for a more vigorous and energetic workout whilst trimming off that excess weight.
Being an appetite suppressant and mood elevator in one, 5-HTP Max works more on the mental side of weight loss by keeping the user in the right frame of mind to lose weight and stick to their goals, as well as tricking the brain into thinking the stomach is full by naturally increasing serotonin levels. When serotonin is increased, a person’s mood is elevated and the body experiences less food cravings. This helps to keep your diet in check.
Benefits of taking 5-HTP Max include:
- Mood enhancement
- Balanced serotonin levels in the brain
- Appetite suppressant
- All natural ingredients
While this supplement is not a fat burner as such, it helps you lose excess weight by lowering your food intake without the nagging cravings. It’s not as quick a weight loss fix as the products listed above, but still well worth mentioning here.
So there’s my top 6 fat burning and weight loss supplements. It’s by no means an exhaustive list. If you have a favourite fat burning or weight loss pill that’s not mentioned in this post, please tell us about it in the comments below.
