People are always looking for quick and easy ways to shed pounds and get into better shape.

This is why fad diets were created, but they are rarely effective. If only it was as easy as losing weight overnight and waking up with the body you’ve always dreamed of.

But that’s not possible, right?

Not quite, but our bodies do burn fat and calories while we sleep.

So, maybe we can use this to our advantage when trying to lose weight. Are there certain things you can eat or drink before bed to help boost this process?

This article has everything you need to know about how to lose weight in your sleep and the best foods to help you do this.


How To Lose Weight Whilst Sleeping

We know that exercise is important for burning calories, but did you know that your body continues to burn through them while you sleep?

Digesting food, repairing cells, maintaining body temperature, and even dreaming – these are all vital functions that your body sustains while you sleep. You are using energy to perform these functions and, therefore, expending calories.

How many calories do you burn while sleeping?

This depends on various factors, including your weight, metabolic rate, and the quantity and quality of sleep you’re getting. On average, we could be burning between 300 and 500 calories just by getting a good night’s sleep.

That’s not a number to be sniffed at!

The amount of sleep you get could also determine what your body uses for the energy it requires. One weight loss study found that participants getting 8.5 hours of sleep per night burned more fat, while those getting only 5.5 hours burned more muscle, as well as losing less weight as a whole.

So, getting a good night’s sleep not only burns calories more effectively, it also helps you to shed fat rather than losing precious muscle mass.


Why sleep is so important to weight loss

Why sleep is so important to weight loss

Rest is just as important as activity when it comes to losing weight, maybe even more important.

If we don’t sleep for long enough or if we constantly wake up during the night, then we experience less REM sleep and feel less rested as a result of not getting enough deep sleep. The REM stage is also when we dream, and our brains need a lot of energy to function during this stage.

That’s right, dreams burn calories!

A lack of sleep could also affect our behaviour during the day. You’ll have less energy if you haven’t had a good night’s sleep, meaning you might be less motivated to exercise or generally be active throughout the day.

TOP TIPS

We burn more calories during the REM stage than any other stage of our sleep cycle. REM is the fourth stage of sleep and the deepest of them all.

It can also create cravings for unhealthy foods and larger portions of food. This is because the hormones leptin and ghrelin, the ones that regulate appetite and satiation, are affected by our sleep cycles.

When we don’t get enough sleep, the body produces less leptin – the hormone that tells us when we’re full – and more ghrelin – the one that tells us when we’re hungry. So, you’re more likely to feel hungry and crave larger portions during the day after not getting adequate sleep.

It also comes down to your cortisol levels, aka, the stress hormone. Your body’s cortisol levels are raised by sleep deprivation, and this can also increase your appetite. You’re likely to crave foods that’ll give you a boost of serotonin, things like chocolate and other sweet treats.

What’s more, your body becomes less effective at breaking down sugar while you’re stressed, causing your blood sugar levels to spike. This can continue the cycle of energy crashes and cravings for sweet foods, also prompting your body to store more fat due to increased insulin levels.


Going to bed on an empty stomach

Going to bed on an empty stomach

There are plenty of “fat loss rules” that are spouted and hotly debated – rules like “no carbs after 5pm” or “no calories after 8pm”. But are there actually any downsides of eating late in the evening?

Going to bed on an empty stomach

There are plenty of “fat loss rules” that are spouted and hotly debated – rules like “no carbs after 5pm” or “no calories after 8pm”. But are there actually any downsides of eating late in the evening?

As we’ve said already, your body is still working on digestion while you sleep, so eating at night should not be a major cause of weight gain. The only downside of eating too much food late at night is that it could disrupt your sleep.

Consuming lots of sugar or caffeine at night might make it more difficult to fall asleep, while eating fatty, greasy meals could keep you up with problems like heartburn.

As long as what you eat at night doesn’t disrupt your sleep pattern, then there’s no reason to starve yourself before bed.

What about the advantages or disadvantages of going to bed hungry?

You might find it more difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night because your body and mind are preoccupied with your hunger.

You might also wake up craving a bigger breakfast or unhealthy foods, and your appetite and cravings might be increased throughout the day.

However, many people swear by the process of intermittent fasting to help them lose weight.

This involves restricting your calorie consumption to a specific time period during the day, between 10am and 8pm, for example. Stopping eating early in the evening could help you follow an intermittent fasting schedule.


TOP TIPS

While being active during the day can help you sleep better at night, exercising too late could have the opposite effect.


Foods To Eat At Night Before Bed

Foods To Eat At Night Before Bed

What is the best food to eat at night to lose weight? Getting plenty of foods rich in certain components in our diet, especially before bed, can make it easier when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep.

Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone that occurs naturally in our bodies. It is produced at night as a way of signalling to the body that it should wind down in time for sleep. Melatonin also occurs naturally in some foods, while other foods promote the production of melatonin.

Including these in your diet could make it easier for you to fall asleep at night:

  • Tart Cherries
  • Rice
  • Walnuts
  • Flaxseed
  • Tomatoes
  • Pomegranate
  • Asparagus

Tryptophan

Tryptophan is found in a variety of meats, nuts, seeds, and dairy products. It is an amino acid that helps to increase serotonin levels in the body, and serotonin is a precursor of melatonin. So, tryptophan = more serotonin, and more serotonin = more melatonin.

Here are some great sources of tryptophan in foods:

  • Turkey
  • Chicken
  • Lamb
  • Almonds
  • Cheese
  • Bananas
  • Eggs
  • Soybeans

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that doesn’t occur naturally in the body. This means we rely on our diet, or supplements, to get enough magnesium.

In relation to sleep, magnesium deficiency can lead to symptoms of insomnia and restless sleep, most likely due to its relationship with the neurotransmitter GABA.

For a magnesium-rich diet, try adding these foods to your plate:

  • Leafy greens
  • Broccoli
  • Bananas
  • Avocado
  • Legumes
  • Dark chocolate
  • Seafood
  • Whole grains

Which foods should you avoid before bed?

Now you know what foods can help you get a good night’s sleep and maximise your ability to lose weight while sleeping, let’s look at the foods to avoid.

Sugary foods – Sugar is a fast-release carbohydrate, meaning it gives you a rush of energy soon after you eat it. Eating too much sugar before bed could leave your body too energised to fall asleep.

Foods with high water content – Although apples, watermelon, and celery have lots of health benefits, they might not be the best choices before bed.

Because of their water content, you could be up in the night desperate for the toilet, disrupting your sleep as a result.

Fatty foods – Greasy and fatty foods can lead to problems like heartburn and acid reflux, especially when eaten in large portions before bed, making it difficult to sleep.

Spicy foods – Similarly, really spicy foods can be a cause of indigestion and other digestive issues that might keep you up at night.

Cheese – Although we’ve mentioned cheese as a good source of tryptophan, it can also be detrimental to your sleep.

You’ve probably heard about cheese causing nightmares. Well, there is some truth to it due to another amino acid, tyramine, which can increase your brain’s alertness.


TOP TIPS

If you’re eating a big evening meal, don’t have it too close to bedtime. Eating your meal 3-4 hours before bedtime and then having a light snack later can keep you satiated without any of the disruptive side effects.


Should you drink before bed?

Should you drink before bed?

It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day, but drinking too late might leave you needing the toilet at night. If you want to enjoy restful sleep all night long, then it’s best not to consume too much liquid close to bedtime. It’s a good idea to stop drinking 90 minutes before you go to bed.

There are different drinks you can try that will help you get to sleep more easily and aid your overnight fat loss.

Here are a few:

Tart cherry juice

We mentioned tart cherries as a good source of melatonin, an important component in getting to sleep at night. So, why not mix it up and gulp down some tart cherry juice before bed? As well as the melatonin, it has lots of other health benefits thanks to being packed with antioxidants and vitamins.

Herbal tea

Green tea, chamomile tea, jasmine tea – whatever your tea of choice, people swear by them for helping them get to sleep. They don’t have the caffeine found in regular tea, and the warmth is comforting, helping you to feel sleepy. Green tea is also thought to have metabolism-boosting effects that could increase your calorie burning through the night.

Warm milk

Warm beverages, in general, are thought to make us sleepy. Warm milk and hot chocolate are good options thanks to the tryptophan in milk, although we wouldn’t recommend it every night due to the sugar content.

Chocolate milk can also be beneficial for sleep and weight loss. It’s thought to be the perfect drink for post-workout recovery due to its protein content. Just be aware of that lactose-free milk is a healthier choice.


What to avoid

What to avoid

You probably know the key players to avoid before bed, but let’s look at why they can be detrimental to your sleep and weight loss.

Alcohol

Alcohol can help you fall asleep more easily, but it also promotes more disruptive sleep and makes you less likely to reach REM sleep. This means fewer calories burned overnight and you’ll be left feeling groggy the next day. Try to avoid drinking alcohol at least 3 hours before you go to bed.

Coffee

Obviously, coffee is high in caffeine. Drinking it too late in the day will leave you feeling more alert around bedtime, making it more difficult to fall asleep. Everyone’s caffeine tolerance is slightly different, but a good rule of thumb is to stop drinking coffee at around 2pm if you’re keeping a regular sleep pattern.

Sugary drinks

Like caffeine, high levels of sugar can increase your alertness levels and leave you feeling wide awake when it comes to bedtime. Cut out drinks that are high in added sugars from your evening routine to help you fall asleep while also cutting down on empty calories.

TOP TIPS

When it comes to weight loss, an easy change to make is to drink fewer calories. Apart from your bedtime drink to help you sleep and the odd cup of coffee during the day, try to rely on water for your hydration as much as possible.

Conclusion

By combining food and drink that help you sleep better at night and offer other health benefits, like making you feel full and boosting your metabolism, you can maximise the number of calories you burn overnight.

Remember, the key to weight loss is making sure you are constantly in ‘calorie deficit’, allowing your body to expend useless fat.

A natural supplement like Leanbean includes ingredients to help you cut out sugar cravings throughout the day and before bed, so you can stay on track towards your fat loss goals.

Just about everyone is searching for a natural solution to weight loss – one that works quickly and is free from side effects. One natural weight loss option is to take a supplement whilst following a ​​​​​​​healthy ​​​​​​​diet and getting enough exercise.

Are you a connoisseur of natural ingredients?

If so, you may have heard the hype surrounding Quercetin.

A lot of people think it can improve your health.

But can a Quercetin supplement really help you fight to off infection? Or lower your blood pressure? Or even improve your energy levels?

And – more importantly – could it be the answer to quicker weight loss?

Let’s dig deeper into our list of the 8 things you should know about Quercetin….


1. Quercetin is a naturally occurring substance

Even if you have heard of Quercetin, it’s likely that you’re not quite sure what it actually is…

Quercetin is a polyphenolic nutrient compound known as a flavonol, a type of molecule that also functions as an antioxidant.

The compound is commonly found in fruits and vegetables such as berries, onions, capers, leafy greens, and tomatoes.

But when it comes to most peoples’ diets, it typically comes from humble apples and potatoes.

On top of this, several studies have found that organically-grown fruit and veg tends to contain more Quercetin than those that are grown conventionally.


2. It might help boost your health!

The scientific community has known about Quercetin for a while now, as it is understood to help reduce inflammation in the body.

This is thought to be because Quercetin may play a role in the inhibition of cytokines, a type of cell that promotes inflammation.

As a result, it has been hypothesized that quercetin could potentially be used to control inflammation associated conditions, including:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Heart disease
  • Autoimmune illnesses
  • High Cholesterol
  • Obesity.

According to certain studies, Quercetin has been shown to decrease the incidence of illness following intense exercise, especially upper respiratory infections such as coronaviruses and adenoviruses.

One double-blind study found that dosing with a 1000 mg dose of quercetin before, during and after a winter cycling regimen resulted in far fewer upper respiratory infections in participants.

Another study found that 2 weeks of daily 1000 mg quercetin supplementation reduced the rate of any illness in untrained young males compared to a placebo.

Sounds good, hey?

Other studies have called into question the benefits of this natural extract, however, and at best it seems the depth of Quercetin’s effects can vary. So it is not entirely understood at this time just how helpful Quercetin might in the battle against infections and illness.

TOP TIPS

Most studies regarding quercetin and blood pressure have found that daily doses of 150 to 500 mg over several weeks can decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.


Quercetin may help reduce your blood pressure

3. Quercetin may help reduce your blood pressure.

As a flavonoid, quercetin is known to play a role in the regulation of blood pressure.

Flavonoids are natural substances supposedly affecting vascular resistance, total blood volume, vascular contraction rate, as well as the overall strength of cells within the cardiovascular system.

Quercetin also acts on cells associated with the kidneys to adjust sodium reabsorption as needed based on blood volume, which in turn adjusts blood pressure.

Most studies regarding quercetin and blood pressure have found that daily doses of 150 to 500 mg over several weeks can decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in participants with stage 1 hypertension, but it is important to note that these effects have not been found in people with prehypertension.


4. The optimal dose of quercetin is not yet known.

While it’s clear that quercetin supplementation may have merit when it comes to things like controlling blood pressure and reducing inflammation, narrowing down an effective dosage is difficult.

Quercetin supplements tend to have low bioavailability, meaning that the amount consumed is very high compared to what is actually absorbed and used by the body. This means that unrealistically large doses may be required each day in order to see any benefits, something that is likely down to the fact that it is not well absorbed by the intestines.

To explain this further, absorption of the naturally-occurring form of Quercetin, Quercetin glucoside, has been estimated at between just 3 and 17 percent in healthy individuals, and some studies have concluded Quercetin’s bioavailability to be only 2 percent for a single dose.

Additionally, individual factors such as vitamin C intake, gender, and type of foods consumed can affect the bioavailability of quercetin.


There is little evidence that quercetin boosts exercise endurance significantly

5. There is little evidence that quercetin boosts exercise endurance significantly.

Another possible function of Quercetin is its apparent effect on capacity for endurance exercise, typically measured using VO2max (the measurement of aerobic capacity).

Various studies have been done in order to try and prove a link between this antioxidant and endurance.

One research paper by the Georgia Institute of Technology has concluded that taking 1000 mg of Quercetin per day for 2 weeks did indeed provide a statistically significant increase in VO2max and endurance exercise capacity.

If you’re not a scientist, these results might sound promising…

But unfortunately statistical significance does not always mean real-life significance.

So whilst the study did find a link between Quercetin and improved exercise performance, the benefit was so small that the authors referred to it as trivial.

Additionally, a number of other studies have concluded that quercetin supplementation does not play any role in endurance exercise capacity, these conflicting results make it quite difficult to determine if such an effect even exists at all.


Quercetin is unlikely to help women burn body fat

6. Quercetin is unlikely to help women burn body fat.

The million-dollar question:

Can Quercetin help you burn fat?

Theoretically, quercetin has the ability to decrease the creation of new fat cells (adipogenesis), whilst increasing the rate of at which fat cells are destroyed (apoptosis). It is also thought to control the rate at which enzymes associated with fat storage go about their functions.

So far so good.

Additionally, studies on mice that were fed a high-fat diet have concluded that Quercetin supplementation did decrease the onset of obesity when compared to other mice consuming the same diet without a Quercetin supplement (11). Scientists went even further and concluded that this effect was down to Quercetin’s effect on genes related to fat metabolism.

So, quercetin can help you beat a bad diet and burn body fat, right? Not so fast!

Although animal studies can be relevant in some situations, it appears that humans are quite different from mice when it comes to losing weight. One study of normal-weight women found no compelling evidence that Quercetin had a thermic (fat-burning) effect in humans when compared with placebo group (12).

On top of this other animal studies have also been inconsistent, with some even reporting weight gain as a result of Quercetin supplementation (11). More research is certainly ideal at this point, but it appears that fat-burning is just not something Quercetin can help with in in humans.

TOP TIPS

Additionally, studies on mice that were fed a high-fat diet have concluded that Quercetin supplementation did decrease the onset of obesity.

Studies show no effect on weight loss or body composition in humans

7. Studies show no effect on weight loss or body composition in humans.

Although exercise performance may get a slight boost as a result of Quercetin intake, this does not necessarily equate to a decrease in body fat or overall weight loss, and using supplemental quercetin on its own without any other lifestyle changes certainly will not do the trick. In order to yield these types of results, longer duration and higher doses of supplementation would likely be necessary.

Unlike mice, the human body appears to have minimal response to quercetin when it comes to weight loss and body composition change, and human studies have typically concluded that there is no effect.

For example, one study in Germany concluded that 6 weeks of quercetin supplementation at 150 mg/day resulted in no change in weight, body fat mass, lean muscle mass, or waist circumference. Sadly, it seems that quercetin is not in fact a miracle weight loss ingredient.

TOP TIPS

Unlike mice, the human body appears to have minimal response to quercetin when it comes to weight loss and body composition change, and human studies have typically concluded that there is no effect.


8. Conclusion: Should I supplement with quercetin?

Studies surrounding the effects of Quercetin on athletic performance and weight loss have had mixed results. Additionally, inconsistent outcomes regarding the bioavailability of quercetin make it difficult to determine whether or not your body will actually absorb and make use of it.

That said, quercetin is generally regarded as a safe supplement, and whilst its effectiveness may vary depending on many factors it is still conceivable that you could see some benefits. You may even find that your results vary compared to a friend or even research studies, depending on your personal health status, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, or other factors.

If you do choose to try quercetin for any reason, be consistent with taking it each and day and realize that it may be several weeks or even months until effects occur (if they do at all).

When it comes to losing weight, it is hard business. Know what makes it even harder? Being female.

Yes, we’ve said it…

Women are inherently dealt a stacked deck when it comes to fat loss, since our bodies are fundamentally different from men in a couple of ways, it makes it harder to achieve the body of our dreams.

LOOK:

The fact of the matter is much of the weight loss advice you will find is more appropriate for men interested in achieving ripped muscles.

But as a woman this is not your goal.

The good news is, we have put together some of the best fat loss tips for females you can find anywhere, and ones that you might not have already considered when trying to lose weight.

Ready to arm yourself with the knowledge required for a bikini body?

Here are some of the best weight loss secrets for women…


1. Women Crave More Than Men

It is well known that a pregnant woman can develop the strangest cravings, and this is often attributed to the growing baby. However, what is less understood is the role hormones have on cravings, since there are distinct differences between male and female cravings.

The fact is:

Men typically crave bulkier or savory meals; whilst this isn’t an ideal way to get your calories in, it is still the lesser evil as these foods are more likely to be loaded with protein, generous amounts of fat and less carbohydrates.

Women’s cravings are vastly different[R]:

Think of it like this – sugar and spice and everything nice! That sums it up in a nutshell. That means candy, chocolate, ice cream and packaged goods that have a sweet kick. Know what complicates it even more? Hormonal variations during the monthly menstrual cycle.

Female fat loss tip – Leanbean

So the key question, How to lose fat?

A great plan of action for is to start off by:

  • Eliminate sources of sugar and fast digesting carbs that you can absolutely do without – think of soda and sugary drinks.
  • Increase your protein consumption in order to reduce your appetite and burn more calories.


Females Have A Slower Metabolism Than Men

2. Females Have A Slower Metabolism Than Men

Another key consideration to keep in mind when planning for weight loss is the fact that women are genetically programmed to have a lower metabolic rate[R], and they burn less calories daily at rest.

What’s more…

This gets even harder with age, meaning that female fat loss for women over 40 can be doubly difficult.

Why do women find it harder to lose weight?

It boils down to differences in body composition. Men, thanks to higher levels of natural testosterone have a greater amount of lean muscle, as well as lower body fat percentages…

A woman’s body naturally has lower muscle mass and greater fat, and evolutionary trait that helps prepare her for childbirth. This is why for female fat loss your workout and diet plan need to be on point!

Female fat loss tip – Leanbean

Here are a few suggestions if you’re looking to lose fat fast in a week.

* High intensity interval training can help shock your body into rapid weight loss – it is much better than regular cardio as the after burn effect will help you lose calories far quicker.

*Lifting weights to create toned muscle and improve metabolic rate at rest.


3. High Estrogen Levels Can Cause Weight Gain

Estrogen is the primary female hormone and is the one that could bring your weight loss efforts to a screeching halt…

In premenopausal women, estrogen is produced primarily by the ovaries, but to a lesser extent also by fat cells. What this means is that women with a higher percentage of body fat are likely to have greater levels of blood estrogen, making it harder to lose weight.

In young women estrogen causes body fat to be distributed around areas of the hips and buttocks[R].

This is likely not helped by the fact that this hormone has somewhat of a blunting effect on the thyroid gland[R], which plays a key role in regulating a number of metabolic processes.

The best way to make estrogen your ace, and not your handicap is to ensure you do not gain more fat than you need. Start with carbohydrate restriction, and incorporate weightlifting exercises with short burst high intensity interval training and you have a solid strategy in place.

Female fat loss tip – Leanbean

Here are a few ways that should help prevent toxic estrogen exposure:

  • Eat more cruciferous vegetables including Broccoli, Cauliflower and cabbage.
  • Limit processed foods and ready meals – Xenoestrogens are found in packaging associated with these types of products.
  • Supplement your diet with estro blockers like Green Tea, Vitamin B and Turmeric.


Intermittent Fasting For Female Weight Loss

4. Intermittent Fasting For Female Weight Loss

Intermittent fasting can be one of the easiest dietary interventions you make that contributes to weight loss.

One of the easiest ways to start is via the “Leangains” style approach, which involves fasting completely from food for 14 hours each day [R].

It is very easy actually:

The rest of the day (in this case 10 hours) you spend re-feeding in order to prevent the body’s starvation survival mechanism from kicking in.

This is also an easy way to reduce calorie consumption each day so that you come closer hitting your lean body goals.


You Can Burn Fat Fast At Home

5. You Can Burn Fat Fast At Home

If you have a busy work and home life this may include keeping a house, raising children and juggling a full-time job.

Where do you find the time to go to the gym?

Simple. Bring the gym to you. You can get an effective total body workout using anything but the resistance your body provides.

The key is to create a high intensity training circuit of around 20 mins that you can repeat easily several times a week

As you progress, you can then invest in a few pieces of workout equipment that may help you along the way, such as a set of adjustable dumbbells.

Make it simple and enjoyable:

Have your workouts while watching your favorite TV show, or while that meal simmers on the stove, or the baby sleeps. With such an arrangement you have enough to go very far and see a significant amount of weight loss.


In Summary

That brings us to the end of our top 5 tips for female fat loss.

What have we learned?

Well, above all else you need to have a strategy. Winging it may work for a short period of time, but you are unlikely to see meaningful and long-term weight loss like that.

Wanting to quickly burn fat from your stomach and hips?

Regular workouts as well healthy eating and the right supplementation will help you get faster results than ever before.

Wondering what it takes to look like a fitness model? Or more specifically, how these professionals shed the excess fat when they want to look lean for a photo shoot?

Fitness models work hard to attain their athletic figures…

But the good news is that with the right steps, you too can get that look too. Your approach is going to depend slightly on how much fat you have to lose overall, however, many of the principles will be the same regardless.

What are the key steps fitness models take to burn fat?

Let’s see:

THEY TAKE THEIR DIET SERIOUSLY

When it comes to fat loss, the smartest of fitness models know that their diet will make a huge difference in the results they see.

A truly fit and lean fitness model has her eating down to a science. She makes sure that she’s getting sufficient amounts of lean protein with each meal and timing her carbs around the times of day when she’s most active – such as before and after a workout session.

Some of the techniques fitness models use to optimise their diets include:

  • Reducing sugar and carbohydrate intake (keep carb intake to 50g per meal)
  • Avoiding sugary drinks and milky coffees
  • Eating lots of protein including chicken and fish
  • Eating more vegetables and leafy greens
  • Drinking plenty of water.


One of the key factors that fitness models also know is that what you put in is what you get out. If you put in processed, unhealthy food that doesn’t provide much in the way of nutrition, you’re going to get back a body that isn’t fit or healthy.

Fitness models understand that if they want to push themselves in the gym each session, they need to be fuelling their body right.

As such, they consume mostly only natural foods – foods that come straight from the ground or the wild. You won’t catch them eating pre-packaged foods or convenience items.


TOP TIPS

Consume mostly only natural foods – foods that come straight from the ground or the wild. Avoid eating pre-packaged foods or convenience items.


They lift weights to burn fat, not to get bulky

They lift weights to burn fat, not to get bulky

Many women worry that lifting weights will make them bulky and masculine, the reality is that women lack the necessary testosterone to get ‘bodybuilder big’, and the chances of the average of woman creating big muscles without pharmaceutical help are slim.

All successful female fitness models lift weights. They aren’t afraid of strength training and know that creating toned muscles is an incredibly effective way of burning fat. This is backed up by a study in the ‘Journal of obesity’ that found ‘Statistically significant improvements to BMI and body fat percentage’ in women who performed strength training two times a week and also noted that lifting weights can ‘improve insulin sensitivity’, something that is vital for shedding fat.

The workouts done by female fitness models focus on compound lifts, which stimulate the greatest amount of total muscle fibers in the body and therefore, ensure that they are burning calories rapidly.

This means focusing on lifts such as:

  • Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Bent over rows
  • pull-ups.


When they execute these exercises, they’re lifting a weight that challenges them in the 8-12 rep range for the most part and still keeping their rest periods on the shorter side.

This is what creates a strong metabolic effect on the body, helping them torch maximum calories in a minimum amount of time.

They also ensure that they’re well fed before and after each workout session.

No empty stomach strength workouts – fitness models know that skipping their pre-workout meal will only make it hard to achieve the intensity needed and put them at a greater risk of fatigue.


TOP TIPS

Many women worry that lifting weights will make them bulky and masculine, the reality is that women lack the necessary testosterone to get ‘bodybuilder big’, and the chances of the average of woman creating big muscles without pharmaceutical help are slim.


They use high intensity cardio to burn fat

They use high intensity cardio to burn fat

When most people look at fitness models, they often think of someone who is doing hours of cardio each week – sometimes twice-a-day sessions.

And while there is the occasional fitness model who does this, it isn’t the norm.

Fitness models who understand the principles of fat loss instead focus on nutrition first. The less cardio they have to do while sustaining the desired rate of fat loss, the better off they’ll be.

When the time comes that they do need to add cardio training into the mix, they’re focusing on intense interval style training.

This includes:

  • Treadmill sprints
  • Cycle sprints
  • Short blasts on the rowing machine
  • Short blasts on the rowing machine


TOP TIPS

Green coffee is another very effective ingredient favored by athletes and has numerous proven benefits.


They Add In Smart Supplementation

They Add In Smart Supplementation

Finally, when fitness models want to burn fat and get leaner, they know where to get help. They turn to smart, proven supplements that they know will not harm their body but will help accelerate the process and make fat loss easier for them.

They supplement their diets with proven ingredients such as cayenne pepper green tea extract , and cayenne pepper green tea extract , which have been shown to help increase the rate of thermogenesis (fat burning) taking place in the body, whilst also giving them a natural energy boost.

Green coffee is another very effective ingredient favored by athletes and has numerous proven benefits. One such study was published in ‘The Journal of International Medical Research’ and showed a controlled group of people taking green coffee extract and losing on average 5.4kg over a twelve week period.

Another important aspect that fitness models have to consider when getting ready for a show is cravings. Just like the rest of us they can often find themselves exposed to powerful sugar urges.


Conclusion

Glucomannan, is a naturally occurring fiber that helps them to combat cravings and stick to their carefully crafted eating plans.

By using natural ingredients like these found in proven supplements, they can effectively increase their overall results.

They do not, however, rely on supplements to do the work for them. They understand that a supplement is only there to assist and boost the efforts they are already putting in.

So if you want to burn fat like a fitness model, make sure that you add these principles and steps into your current program.

If they aren’t, make a few changes so that you can achieve your goals and sustain the results over the longer term.

The popular keto diet has been on fire for a number of years, with everyone jumping on the low carb bandwagon to try to lose weight.

The diet involves drastically reducing your carbohydrate intake while increasing the amount of protein and fat you consume.

This puts your body in a state called ketosis where you burn stored fat instead of sugar, causing rapid weight loss.

Why Follow the Keto Diet?

Whether this is a healthy diet to follow has been the subject of some debate, with arguments on both sides. Some people think the amount of fat you consume could be too much.

They recommend taking in a lot of unsaturated fats like nuts, seeds, and tofu on the diet rather than unhealthy saturated fats.

One thing that’s certain is that this diet does work as far as taking off the pounds. There are many anecdotal reports from dieters who claim to have lost a great deal of weight following this regimen.

In addition, research indicates that people following a low carb diet lose more weight in the first 3-6 months than those on a regular diet. The keto regimen also lowers serum triglyceride levels ( 1 ).

Best Keto Supplements for Weight Loss

A popular option is to take substances considered to be weight-loss supplements while you’re following the keto diet, to intensify the effect. There are numerous different options to consider, each with their own benefits.

Top Tips

Some of these substances may also reduce the flu-like symptoms which can go along with the keto diet, making it easier to follow.

Learning about different nutrients and supplements can be quite intimidating if you are just starting your diet regime. Thankfully, websites like Supplement Lexicon can be a great source of knowledge to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Here are the top weight-loss ingredients you can take while following the keto diet.

BHB (Betahydroxybutrate) Ketones

Ketones are released by your liver naturally when you drastically cut down on your carbohydrate intake. This allows you to go into the state of ketosis, where your body burns fat instead of glucose because it’s starved of those sugars.

In addition to the ketones released by your body, many people take an extra dose of exogenous ketone salts which can be found in over-the-counter supplements. This could increase the number of ketones in your system, ensuring that you stay in ketosis.

There is research to support the efficacy of exogenous ketones at putting the body into ketosis. One study found that the ingestion of ketone drinks not only caused participants to enter ketosis, it also lowered blood glucose, free fatty acid, and triglyceride counts ( 2 ).

Apple Cider Vinegar

Many keto supplements add apple cider vinegar as an extra ingredient, because of its purported weight-loss properties. If you’re following the keto diet, you can add it to your regimen in supplement or liquid form and possibly intensify the weight-loss effects.

The body of evidence to support apple cider vinegar as a weight-loss agent is not huge, but some research has found a positive effect. A study of obese participants that took place in Japan, for example, found that taking ACV for a 12-week period led to weight loss ( 3 ).

Apple cider vinegar also has other medicinal benefits for the keto dieter. It’s filled with healthy antioxidants that strengthen the immune system ( 45 ). In addition, it can lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels ( 45 ).

MCT Oil

This is a form of fat called medium-chain triglycerides, which are easily absorbed into your system. MCT oil is found in high amounts in coconut oil.

It’s an effective weight-loss substance largely because it releases hormones that promote a feeling of fullness. In addition, its absorption into your body can cause you to burn calories more efficiently. ( 6 )

There have been studies showing that MCT oil leads to weight loss, and can even prevent obesity ( 7 ). This substance may help you drop the pounds through several means.

It increases the growth of good bacteria in your intestinal lining, which can lead to more efficient weight loss. For people who are following the keto diet, MCT oil is particularly ideal ( 6 ).

MCT can turn into ketones, which helps keep the dieter in the state of ketosis ( 6 ).

Garcinia Cambogia

Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit that comes from Indonesia. It’s very high in hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is a known weight-loss substance.

Garcinia can both help burn fat and prevent the formation of new fat on the body. It’s also a potent appetite suppressant that can prevent you from over-snacking while you’re trying to lose weight ( 8 ).

The potency of Garcinia as a weight-loss substance is backed up by the research. For example, one study had overweight adults consume this substance for a 16-week period. They concluded that Garcinia was useful for reducing visceral fat ( 9 ).

Due to its powerful weight loss properties, Garcinia is an ideal supplement to the keto diet. It’s often included as an ingredient in weight-loss and keto products.

Low carb foods for the keto diet

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

These are polyunsaturated fatty acids which are often found in fatty fish oils. They are essential for our bodies, but we don’t produce them – we have to get them from food.

These fatty acids are key parts of the cell membrane, and they also perform other essential medical functions like regulating the hormones that lead to blood clotting ( 10 ).

Due to their key role in the body, omega 3 fatty acids have many health benefits. This includes lessening the chances of heart disease and stroke and treating rheumatoid arthritis ( 10 ).

Omega 3 fatty acids are a good accompaniment to the keto diet because there’s some evidence to indicate that they strengthen the effect of the diet. They can also lessen insulin and triglyceride levels ( 11 ).

In addition, adding extra omega 3s is good for people following a high-fat diet, as it helps to even out the omega 3 to omega 6 ratio in your body ( 12 ).

Chromium

Chromium is a mineral that is found in the body in small amounts, and we get the rest from food. It’s a very popular supplement among keto dieters because of its helpful properties.

Chromium regulates insulin, lipid, and glucose levels. It also plays a key role in the metabolizing and storage of fats, carbs, and proteins ( 13 ).

Chromium is considered to be a potent appetite suppressant, and research does support this finding ( 14 ). Keto dieters find this substance especially useful because it helps them to control their cravings for carbs.

Chromium is more helpful for curbing appetite than for actual weight loss. There is some evidence that this mineral directly leads to losing weight, but it’s limited ( 15 ).

Caffeine

Caffeine is a common ingredient in keto supplements, because of its powerful weight-loss properties. It speeds up metabolism, putting the body into the state of thermogenesis where it burns fat rapidly.

This leads to rapid weight loss, and can certainly accentuate the fat burning effects for people following the keto diet. There’s a lot of evidence supporting the properties of caffeine.

A study in the European Journal of General Nutrition 16 looked at people in the general population and their coffee consumption and compared it with weight-loss maintenance. They found that caffeine intake is related to successfully keeping off weight ( European Journal of General Nutrition 16 ).

Caffeine also has other benefits for the keto dieter, such as improving workout performance and providing you with additional energy to be active. Research has shown that ingesting caffeine can be especially helpful for athletes who are beginning a keto diet ( 17 ).

Magnesium

Magnesium is not a weight-loss substance, but it has many other benefits which make it a very useful supplement to take along with the keto diet. This mineral is found in high amounts in the body, and it also exists in many foods.

Magnesium is responsible for protein synthesis and blood glucose control, among several other bodily functions. It’s also a key element in energy production ( 18 ).

Many of the foods that are high in magnesium also contain a lot of carbohydrates and are not allowed on the keto diet. For this reason, supplementing with magnesium is especially useful if you’re on this regimen ( 12 ).

Low levels of magnesium could lead to some symptoms of the keto flu, like headaches and tiredness. There are some low carb foods that are high in magnesium, including spinach, pumpkin seeds, and mackerel ( 12 ).

Forskolin

This is an herb called Coleus Forskohlii which is included as an additional ingredient in some keto supplements. You can also find it as a separate product to take on its own while following the keto diet.

Top Tips

Forskolin is considered to be an appetite suppressant. It may also speed up your metabolism, which leads to rapid fat-burning and weight loss.

The evidence for Forskolin as a weight-loss substance is not overwhelming, but research has found support for this conclusion. A 12-week study of overweight men on Obesity Research 19 found that consumption of Forskolin did lead to weight loss, as well as an increase in bone mass and testosterone levels ( Obesity Research 19 ).

The metabolism-boosting and weight-loss properties of Forskolin make it an excellent supplement to accompany the keto diet.

Keto Diet Supplements

There are numerous supplements on the market which are designed to be taken along with following the keto diet. Most of them include some of the ingredients discussed in this article.

The purpose of these supplements is to provide additional benefits in order to greatly accentuate the weight loss you are already experiencing. One of the most effective supplements for women to take along with the keto diet is our own Leanbean.

Leanbean

Leanbean is a powerhouse fat burner that was made specifically for women. It helps you lose weight quickly and effectively without including any stimulants.

Leanbean has ingredients like Garcinia Cambogia which speed up the metabolism, helping your body burn fat more quickly. This makes it an ideal product to take along with the keto diet since it helps you lose weight faster.

In addition, Leanbean includes substances like glucomannan, which are able to suppress your appetite ( 20 ). This can stop the keto dieter from giving in to temptation and eating carbs.

Leanbean also has numerous health benefits; it’s very high in antioxidants, which greatly strengthen your immune system.

Top Tips

Leanbean also contains healthy B vitamins, and minerals like chromium, zinc, and potassium.

If you’re looking for the perfect supplement to take while you’re following the keto diet, Leanbean could be the one that fulfils all of your needs.

Conclusion

The keto diet has been around for many years, because of its great effectiveness in helping people lose weight rapidly. Along with the diet, there are a number of supplements you can take which could accentuate the effect and move your progress forward.

The supplements discussed in this article provide both additional weight-loss benefits to go along with the keto diet, and numerous health properties which are beneficial for your body.

Some of these supplements may also help to diminish some of the symptoms of the keto flu which can go along with the diet. This can make it easier to stay on the regimen for longer.

If you’re planning on following the keto diet, we do recommend that you include one or more of these supplements in your routine.

Use Leanbean for 90 days. See Results, or your money back

Getting beach-ready does not have to be an impossible quest. Leanbean will give your body the natural boost it needs to start burning fat. What’s more, if you use Leanbean four times a day for 3 months and don’t think it’s helped you get results we’ll give you a refund.

Many people struggle with stubborn body fat around the thighs. It can be challenging to know what to do in an attempt to remove it.

To worsen matters, there is a great deal of conflicting information out there. This makes it difficult to know what approach should be taken.

This article will provide the essential information that you need and show you how to lose weight in the thighs.

What Causes Fat Gain

Before considering the steps to take to reduce fat around the thighs, let consider what causes body fat to increase.



You may have heard a multitude of potential reasons for fat gain. It’s not uncommon to hear it suggested that eating carbs, your genetics or a lack of exercise are the definitive reasons.



However, although these may contribute towards fat gain, they are not the direct cause.

The Impact of a Calorie Surplus

The main cause of fat gain is a calorie surplus. This is where more calories are consumed than burned.



As a result, the body stores the excess calories as body fat. Stored body fat’s primary purpose is to act as an energy reserve.



Should calories be restricted, the body will break down these fat stores to continually supply the body with energy.



If you consume too many calories over a prolonged time period, significant fat gain can be expected.

Fat Storage

Although fat is stored throughout the body, why does it feel like fat is stored in greater quantities in specific places? 



The thighs, stomach, and hips are prime suspects, and many find it challenging to reduce fat in these areas.



It’s important to understand fat storage differences between genders and the role of genetics.

Firstly, women are prone to have a greater body fat percentage and tend to store fat in different areas to men.



Women are more inclined to fat storage in the thighs and hips while men tend to store more in the abdomen. ( 1 )

Further studies have investigated the role that genetics plays in fat storage. There is evidence to suggest that body fat distribution is largely determined by your genetics. ( 2 )

Therefore, it is very possible that some individuals are more susceptible to storing fat around the thighs than others.

How To Lose Thigh Fat

Regardless of body fat percentage, gender, or genetic disposition, it is still possible to get rid of thigh fat.



So, what is the best way to lose thigh fat?

Well, there are three lifestyle factors that can significantly influence weight loss:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical Activity
  • Sleep

Nutrition

Firstly, when it comes to fat loss, nutrition plays a critical role.



Your body uses calories for energy. By restricting calories, the body needs to find energy from another source.



Therefore, the body has no option other than burning stored body fat to supply the body with energy.



If you maintain a calorie deficit for a prolonged time period, significant fat loss will occur.



However, temper your expectations as results will not come overnight. Be patient and consistent.



As a consequence of reducing calories, body fat will be used up – this includes fat stored around the thighs.

Top Tips

If you maintain a calorie deficit for a prolonged time period, significant fat loss will occur.

Physical Activity

Regular exercise can help to reduce body fat too.



Physical activity requires movement and movement requires energy.

Therefore, the body will use calories from food or stored body fat as energy to fuel exercise.



As a result, regular exercise can significantly contribute to significant fat reduction. 



However, it’s important to recognise that you cannot spot reduce fat through exercise.

This is where targeted exercises are used in an attempt to bring about fat loss in specific areas of the body.



Unfortunately, there is a widely-held belief that spot reduction is possible. Scientific research would suggest otherwise.



Whilst exercise can improve muscular strength and endurance, they do not directly lead to fat burning in the working area.

One study that highlights this looked at the impact of abdominal exercise on abdominal fat.



After six weeks of training, muscular endurance had improved, however, abdominal fat remained unchanged ( 3 ).



Therefore, performing leg exercises may burn fat generally but will not specifically burn fat stored in the thighs.

Sleep

When it comes to fat loss, the importance of sleep is often overlooked.


Getting good quality sleep can evidently prevent fatigue and tiredness, however, it can bring many more benefits.

There is an abundance of research on sleep.

Studies have found that adequate sleep may lower the risk of obesity, maintain a healthy appetite, and generally promote health. ( 4 )

As a result, it is vastly important that sleep is prioritised. Something as simple as establishing a bedtime and a night time routine can have a huge impact on sleep.



It is recommended to aim for between six and eight hours of sleep per night.

By addressing these three lifestyle factors and applying simple changes, you can substantially reduce body fat.

Top Tips

Studies have found that adequate sleep may lower the risk of obesity, maintain a healthy appetite, and generally promote health.

The Best Exercises to Tone Your Thighs

Okay, so sadly it’s not possible to burn fat exclusively in the thighs. But we can improve the definition of the thighs through exercise.



By reducing calories, body fat will reduce and allow the underlying muscle to show more clearly.



Additionally, you can use strength training exercises to improve the tone of the thigh muscles.

By simultaneously decreasing body fat and increasing muscle definition, the thighs will look much more toned.



This section will highlight four key leg-based exercises to increase muscle definition.

Top Tips

By reducing calories, body fat will reduce and allow the underlying muscle to show more clearly.

Squats

The ultimate leg exercise. The squat will primarily work the quads, the muscle at the front of the thigh, and the glutes.



While this exercise can be completed using only bodyweight, there is great benefit in performing barbell and dumbbell squats.



Squat Technique:

Place the feet at shoulder-width and stand tall with the chest lifted and core engaged.
Hinge the hips and bend the knees to drop your backside towards the floor
Push hard through the heels and drive back up to standing

Deadlifts

While squats work the front thigh muscle, the deadlift will work the rear thigh muscle – the hamstrings. It will also place a demand on the glutes. 



If this exercise is new, you may wish to start with a dumbbell deadlift and then progress onto the barbell version.



Deadlift Technique:

  • Start with the feet under the hips, stand tall, and pull the shoulder back and down
  • Come down to the weight by pushing the hips back and slightly bending the knees
  • Grasp the weight and drive through the heels until in a standing position
  • Squeeze your glutes together tightly before reversing the movement back to the floor

Lunges

The lunge is an excellent single-leg developer. It requires powerful contractions from the quads and activates a number of smaller leg muscles for stabilisation.



As with the squat, this can be performed using bodyweight only. Barbells and dumbbells can be used to provide a further challenge.

Lunge Technique:

  • Place the feet under the hips, stand tall, chest up and pull the shoulders back
  • Take a step forward and bend both knees to drop the trailing knee to the floor
  • Focus on driving through the heel of the front leg and return to standing
  • Change sides and repeat

Glute Bridges

As the name suggests, this exercise will develop the glutes. The movement also activates the hamstrings highly.

For single-leg development, perform a single-leg glute bridge. For this, simply lift one foot from the floor and perform a bridge as normal. 



Glute Bridge Technique:

  • Lie on the floor with the feet flat and the knees bent at approximately 90°
  • Engage the core and then drive the hips up, squeezing the glutes at the top
  • Drop the hips back to the floor in a controlled manner

Nutrition for Fat Loss

As briefly mentioned earlier, a calorie deficit is most important when it comes to fat reduction.



Therefore, your priority should be on establishing and maintaining a calorie-restricted diet.



Making small changes to your daily routines can go a long way. 

Simple things such as smaller portion sizes and swapping out snacks for healthier alternatives can massively impact calorie consumption.


Calorie counting is an option too. There are many apps that will allow you to track your nutrition to ensure that you are consuming the right amount.

Finally, it is recommended to increase your daily protein intake.



A high protein diet has been found to be beneficial during fat loss. 

Protein foods have an impact on satiety levels. Therefore, by consuming a high amount of protein, you will feel much fuller for longer.



Research has also looked at the impact of high protein diets on weight loss. It appears that high-protein diets can lead to a greater rate of weight loss. ( 5 )

Top Tips

There are many apps that will allow you to track your nutrition to ensure that you are consuming the right amount.

The Final Word

So there you have it. You now have all the information you need for slim thighs.



While other lifestyle factors can have an impact on fat loss, the focus should be on nutrition first and foremost.

Be consistent with your nutrition and, soon enough, your thighs will be noticeably slimmer.

According to the media phentermine is America’s diet drug of choice. But is it safe? And what are the alternatives if you don’t want to take a pharmaceutical approach to losing weight? Let’s find out.

What is phentermine?

Phentermine is an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite. It comes as an oral capsule, tablet, and a disintegrating tablet.

It acts as a short-term weight loss (a few weeks) treatment for very overweight or obese people with certain health risk factors, including high blood pressure, raised cholesterol and diabetes.

Phentermine is intended for use as part of an overall weight-loss plan such as exercise, behavioural change, and calorie reduction belonging to a class of drugs called anorectics also known as appetite suppressants.

Phentermine works by increasing the release of three chemicals from nerve terminals in your brain, which helps to reduce appetite: norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. When the levels of these chemicals increase, the feeling of hunger decreases, helping you to eat less and therefore, over-time, to lose weight.

It is possible to build a tolerance to the weight loss effects of phentermine within a month or so. If this occurs, the product’s use should stop. Phentermine is FDA approved for short-term use only, as there are no long-term studies on its safety. However, the FDA has approved phentermine (at a lower dose) combined with topiramate for long-term use.

Key brands: Adipex-P, Lomaira, Fastin, Suprenza


OTC phentermine – Where can I buy it?

Like similar prescription medications, phentermine, is not generally available over the counter. To buy this product you likely need to receive a prescription from a doctor and collect it at the pharmacy.

If you don’t want purchase phentermine from a store then there are alternative methods of getting it.

Brands such as Adipex-p, Lonamin and pro fast are often available from CVS, Honeybeehealth, Rite aid and other online pharmacies, making the process somewhat more convenient, though you will still need a medical prescription to purchase them.

Top Tips

Phentermine is not available at retailers like GNC or Walmart, but it is available at Walgreens.


Is phentermine safe? Side effects explained…

Is phentermine safe?

When choosing prescription medication such as phentermine, there will inevitably be certain side effects. Reported side effects of Phentermine include:

  • heart palpitations
  • fatigue
  • nausea
  • restlessness
  • vomiting
  • constipation
  • tremors
  • headaches
  • loss of libido

Although further research is needed, some studies have reported that phentermine and similar products may increase the risk of hypertension in humans.

A further study referenced a female who experienced pulmonary arterial hypertension after five weeks of taking phentermine and suggested that further research is needed to establish the safety and recommended dosage level of the product.

Phentermine can be taken alone or used in combination with other medications for promoting weight loss. Fen-phen was a popular combination of phentermine and fenfluramine or phentermine and dexfenfluramine.

However, both fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine were removed from the market in 1997, when it was revealed that they may cause serious heart and lung problems. It is not clear whether phentermine alone may cause similar problems.

Phentermine should not be taken if you have heart disease, hyperthyroidism, glaucoma, or if you are pregnant or nursing. Your doctor will determine whether the product is appropriate and safe for you.


Best phentermine alternatives – Pharmaceutical options

Best phentermine alternatives

Orlistat

Orlistat is a weight-loss agent with a novel mechanism of action and acts as a treatment option for obese people who want to lose weight.

It works by inhibiting gastric and pancreatic lipases in the lumen of the gastrointestinal tract to reduce systemic absorption of dietary fat. Treatment with orlistat may also offer small improvements in total cholesterol, LDL, blood pressure and fasting glucose.

Importantly, orlistat may reduce the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, taking a multi-vitamin during orlistat therapy is recommended to prevent deficiencies.

Reported side-effects include severe gastrointestinal discomfort, oily rectal leakage, body aches, diarrhea, flatulence with discharge and fever. Key brands: Xenical and Alli.

Lorcaserin

Lorcaserin is a selective serotonin 2c receptor agonist, approved by the FDA in 2012 for weight management. It affects chemical signals in the brain that control appetite, helping you to feel full by eating smaller meals. Lorcaserin is used together with diet and exercise to treat obesity.

A 2019 systematic review based on 9,452 patients showed favorable effects on blood pressure, heart rate and metabolic syndrome.

Commonly reported side effects of lorcaserin include: headache, euphoria, serotonin syndrome, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, upper respiratory tract infection, rash, urinary tract infections, back pain and dizziness. Key brands: Belviq, Belviq XR.

Liraglutide

Liraglutide induces weight loss in a population of obese patients, including those with hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, and obstructive sleep apnea, and offers the benefit of improved glycemic control.

The drug delays gastric (stomach) emptying, slowing the absorption of glucose by the gut and reducing appetite. The most common side effects, which occur in more than 5%, of people, include nausea, hypoglycemia, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, headache, dyspepsia, fatigue, dizziness, abdominal pain and increased lipase.

Gastrointestinal intolerability is also common; it was cited as the main reason for people discontinuing the drug during trials. Key brands: Victoza, Saxenda.

The best phentermine alternatives – Natural options

The best phentermine alternatives are natural ingredients that help you to reduce your appetite and calorie consumption while carrying a lower risk of side effects that come with prescription drugs.

The following are safe ingredients that work similarly to phentermine but are available without a prescription:

Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a water-soluble, fermentable dietary fiber

Glucomannan is a water-soluble, fermentable dietary fiber extracted from the tuber that contributes to weight loss in the context of an energy-restricted diet.

It appears to promote weight loss by delaying stomach emptying and producing satiety, as it sponges up water in the digestive tract, reducing the absorption of carbs and cholesterol.

What’s more, glucomannan feeds the good bacteria in your intestine, which turns it into short-chain fatty acids (proven in animal studies to protect against weight gain). A 2008 systematic review showed that Glucomannan also appears to positively affect total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

The weight-loss results achieved with glucomannan are impressive, with one study reporting that the use of glucomannan fiber alone resulted in participants losing an average of 5.5 pounds over eight weeks without additional diet or lifestyle changes.

Glucomannan is available as a supplement and in drink mixes, or can be added to food products, such as pasta and flour. It is best taken between 15 minutes and one hour before eating, with the sufficient dosage for weight loss set at 1 gram mixed with water three times a day. Side effects, while uncommon, include mild flatulence, bloating or soft stools.

Natural caffeine

Numerous studies report natural caffeine as playing a significant role in weight loss, thanks to its ability to increase calorie burn and fat breakdown.

Additionally, coffee can work as a natural appetite suppressant, further supporting weight loss.

Consuming caffeine 30 mins to 4 hours before eating may influence stomach emptying, appetite hormones and hunger levels. This effect can last through to the next meal, so people are more likely to opt for smaller portions during lunch or dinner, and throughout the day.

Caffeine may also support weight loss by helping to boost metabolism by up to 10%.

Top Tips

Consuming caffeine 30 mins to 4 hours before eating may influence stomach emptying, appetite hormones and hunger levels.

Vitamin B

B vitamins play an important function in metabolism

B vitamins play an important function in metabolism; one of its key roles is to support the body in metabolizing fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

Thiamine (B1), for example, supports the body’s cells in converting carbohydrates into energy. Sub-par levels of this, or indeed any B vitamin, means your metabolism will be operating sub-optimally, which may lead to weight gain and potentially obesity.

Cobalamin (B12) is not available through plant sources, making it more difficult for those following a vegan or even a vegetarian diet to get enough.

Choline

Choline is an essential nutrient that plays an important role in maintaining health, including adequate lipid metabolism and the transportation of cholesterol and lipids.

A 2016 study of 3,214 people confirmed that high dietary choline is closely associated with favorable body composition in humans and that low choline levels were linked to obesity.

Garcinia cambogia

The peel of Garcinia gummi-gutta fruit contains hydroxycitric (HCA), which may help contain weight loss properties. Animal studies also show that supplementing garcinia cambogia may reduce food intake.

Garcinia cambogia also appears to increase serotonin levels, which then communicate with the brain to produce satiety signals, making it a possible natural appetite suppressant.

Turmeric

Turmeric has shown potential as an anti-inflammatory agent and may support skin diseases, digestive issues, liver conditions and obesity.

With weight gain, white adipose tissue increases. Brown adipose tissue helps produce heat by burning fat. Research has found that turmeric may trigger white adipose tissue to turn brown, leading to weight and fat loss.


Conclusion

We have now discussed each alternative to the well-known drug phentermine, including natural options, for those looking for a safer way to lose weight.

While phentermine can be a useful short-term weight loss method, the reported side effects are many and further research is needed to rule out the worrying links with hypertension.

All this goes to show that, choosing a natural product and combining it with a diet and lifestyle change can help you achieve safe and long-lasting weight-loss.

Do vitamins provide energy? Which vitamins boost metabolism? And which are the best vitamins for weight loss in females?

There is a long list of vitamins and minerals, and you probably have just as many questions about what they are and what they do. This article will tell you everything you need to know about vitamins that help weight loss. We’ve dug deep to make sure the claims are supported by scientific literature.

We’ll begin with a few definitions.

What Are Vitamins?

Vitamins are a group of organic compounds required by the human body for normal bodily functions, including growth, metabolism, and nutrition.

The body cannot produce vitamins, so they must be ingested through foods (where they are naturally occuring) or through supplements. Vitamin D can be produced by the body, but the process requires exposure to sunlight.

What about the difference between vitamins and minerals? The two are often mentioned together, but what actually distinguishes them?

Vitamins are organic, meaning they derive from living matter, whereas minerals are inorganic. This means they are “created by non-living natural processes or human intervention.” (1)

Minerals include elements in their pure form – zinc, magnesium, selenium – as well as compounds, which are molecules composed of different substances. Compound minerals include things like choline and chloride.

Vitamins in the Diet

Vitamins play an important role in our body’s ability to metabolize fats and carbohydrates, as well as breaking down food and using it for energy.

Pretty much every type of food contains vitamins, so if you eat a balanced and healthy diet it is unlikely you’ll become deficient in any. Because of the way vitamins are removed from the body, it is not dangerous to exceed the daily allowances, meaning supplements are safe and sometimes encouraged.

(Note: Any vegans reading this should be aware that vitamin B12 is not naturally present in any foods compatible with vegan diets!)

You’ll see the term ‘body composition’ in this artice. This refers to the ratio of fat, bone, water, and muscle in your body.

Does Vitamin Deficiency Cause Weight Gain?

Deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals have been found in people who are overweight. We explore these in more detail later in the article.

Weight gain can be caused by a lot of things, including (but not limited to):

  • Eating more calories than you burn through activity.
  • Oversized food portions.
  • Lack of exercise.
  • Limited access to healthy foods.
  • Frequently eating high-fat and high-sugar snacks.
  • An underactive thyroid.
  • Certain medicines.
  • Stress.
  • Poor sleep.

In short, it’s unlikely that a vitamin deficiency alone would cause noticeable weight gain, but having vitamins and minerals at the right levels contributes to bodily functions that lead to better weight management. Keeping on top of your vitamin intake may play a part in maintenance of your desired weight.

The thyroid is a good example of a body part whose function can lead to weight gain. It plays a large part in the body’s metabolism (2), meaning that interruptions can change your metabolic rate. Hypothyroidism is a condition where your thyroid doesn’t produce enough hormones, and your metabolism slows as a result. This means fewer calories are required for your body to perform its basic functions.

The result?

All the unused calories are stored as fat, instead. This is a fine example of how weight loss can occur even though no additional food is being eaten.

Many vitamins are associated with healthy thyroid function, including vitamin D. A study – published in the journal Nature (15) – found that 72% of people with hypothyroidism were deficient in Vitamin-D, as opposed to 31% of people with healthy thyroid function.

What Are The Best Vitamins For Weight Loss?

Vitamins and minerals can contribute to weight loss via different mechanisms. The two mechanisms we will look at in this piece are the reduction of appetite, and increasing metabolic rate.

Reduction of appetite is fairly self explanatory: If you feel less hungry, you will eat less food and ingest fewer calories as a result.

Metabolic rate, as we have seen previously, determines the amount of calories required by your body to fulfil its basic survival needs. A higher rate, therefore, means that more calories are used up by metabolism, and fewer are stored as fat in the body.

The best Vitamins for Metabolism and Energy

These vitamins and minerals are associated with healthy body metabolism, which itself is associated with efficient use of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. By maintaining a healthy metabolism, you give your body the best chance to use the fats in your diet, rather than storing them in your tissue. This contributes to less weight gain.

1. Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 – found in high quantities in pork, poultry, and fish – plays the role of coenzyme in over one hundred chemical reactions in the human body, associated with metabolism of glucose and lipids (fats). Its role as a coenzyme means that its presence is required for chemical reactions to take place.

Its role has been known for a long time. In 1959, the Journal of the American Oil Chemists Society concluded that “Vitamin B6 is one of the B vitamins which are required for the normal metabolism of the fats and essential fatty acids.” (3)

There are many subtly different forms of Vitamin B6, but the one we are interested in is Pyridoxal 5′-phosphate, known as PLP for short. This is the metabolically active form, which means it is used in metabolic reactions (those involved in metabolism).

Vitamin B6 is also involved in a process called glycogenolysis, in which the body’s energy stores (glycogen) are broken down into readily usable forms. In short, it contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, giving your body the energy it needs.

It is also an essential component in the biosynthesis of sphingolipids (4), which in layman’s terms means the construction of a substance built with fats. Fats stored in the body are used for energy or for other purposes including the construction of cell walls and other structures: Either of these uses reduces the amount of fat stored in your tissue.

2. Vitamin B12

This is another big player: It is involved in the metabolism of every cell in the human body.

As with B6, B12 is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids, and contributes to essential biochemical reactions involved in the metabolism of fats. By helping the body to convert fats into energy, it again contributes to fewer fats being stored in your tissue. B vitamins are water-soluble, meaning your body gets rid of excess B6 and B12 along with other water-bound waste products (5).

B12 is found in highest quantities in animal liver and kidneys.

3. Vitamin D

Your body produces this vitamin after exposure to sunlight, and it is thought that 10% of American adults are deficient (6).

Vitamin D is found in foods – such as fish, beef liver, and cheese – but not in the quantities required in the human diet. It’s not always easy to spend more time in the sun, so vitamin D is often taken as a supplement.

We mentioned the link between Vitamin D and hypothyroidism earlier. A 2004 study also found that concentrations of vitamin D “fall with increasing adiposity” (7), suggesting a link between low vitamin D levels and adiposity, or, higher body fat.

It is unknown whether this relationship is caused by the amount of vitamin D in the body, or through factors associated with higher body fat, such as lower exposure to sunlight. Either way, vitamin D supplements are a reliable way to boost your body’s levels.

Unlike B vitamins, which are water-soluble, D vitamins are fat-soluble. This means leftovers are stored in the body.

4. Chromium

This mineral – found most in broccoli, green beans, and other veg – “has been shown to attenuate weight gain” (8). Chromium picolinate, the form of chromium used by the body, is associated with this reduction in rate of weight gain.

Chromium provides support for healthy glucose metabolism. It helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, and helps also to metabolize fats (9).

Chromium also affects the amount of energy we get from food. The exact mechanism is not understood, but it is thought to involve “regulation of eating behavior, mood, and food cravings” (10).

5. Choline

This mineral – high quantities of which are found in eggs, liver, and peanuts – supports natural lipid metabolism and normal homocysteine metabolism.

Lipid transport and metabolism involves your body breaking down fats, and storing them in the right places while they are waiting to be used. A more efficient metabolism means that less fat is stored in the body, contributing to weight loss efforts (11).

6. Zinc

This mineral – found in large quantities in meat and shellfish – supports normal carbohydrate metabolism, normal macronutrient metabolism, and the normal metabolism of fatty acids.

One study found that “zinc nutritional status in obese individuals is altered” (12), suggesting a similar link between deficiency and higher weight (as we saw earlier with vitamin D).

7. Magnesium

This mineral – found most in green, leafy veg, is involved in the production of energy.

An associated effect is reduction of fatigue, which may give you a boost to do more physical activity. As we know this is one of many factors involved in the type of healthy lifestyle associated with weight loss.

8. Selenium

This mineral – which is found in high quantities in Brazil nuts – plays a role in thyroid function, helping it to create the hormones required for effective metabolism (13).

A healthy thyroid plays a role in weight management by releasing hormones that affect the use of fat, carbohydrates, and proteins in the body. Selenium can therefore be associated with normal metabolic function in the body.

9. Iodine

This mineral – abundant in fish – is involved in the production of thyroxine in the body. This hormone is used by your body to regulate metabolism and the rate at which fat is burned. Thyroxine is made in the thyroid (14), meaning idoine is another mineral associated with healthy thyroid function.

The Best Vitamins for Appetite

We mentioned the impact on appetite of chromium, although the primary purpose of that mineral is metabolic, so it was included in the previous section.

1. Chloride

This mineral – found in table salt (sodium chloride) – is associated with reductions in bloat, and with proper digestion.

Ensuring you have enough chloride in your diet means that your appetite will be more natural, and you will be more likely to eat the correct amount of food. Bloat simulates feelings of fullness, but it is not good for the body.

In conclusion…

Vitamin deficiencies are a common theme when it comes to obesity and poor body composition, so making sure you are not missing any essential vitamins or minerals from your diet is important. Supplements are a way to top up levels of compounds you may not be getting enough of in your diet.

Many vitamins and minerals contribute to your body’s natural metabolism, ensuring that your metabolic rate is optimal. This is important in making sure fats you ingest are used as energy or for internal processes, rather than stored in your tissues.

Remember on their own vitamin supplements won’t cause you to magically lose weight, they are just another piece in the puzzle when it comes to optimizing your training and lifestyle plan.

When you pop ‘weight loss pills’ in the Amazon search bar, over 1000 results come up. So which ones are worth your while?

We’ve written this guide to answer all the questions you may have about buying weight loss pills on Amazon.

After reading you’ll have all the information you need to buy fat burners on Amazon, or elsewhere on the internet.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • A brief history of fat burners.
  • A guide to buying fat burners on Amazon.
  • How to avoid illegal fat burners.
  • Amazon’s Choice and Best Sellers: What they mean.
  • Reasons to buy fat burners on Amazon.
  • The best fat burners on Amazon.
  • An answer to the question “is Leanbean sold on Amazon?”
  • A rundown of Leanbean ingredients and how it works.

Let’s get started!

A brief history of fat burners

We’ll begin with a quick look at the history of fat burners. We’ll introduce the concept if you’re not familiar, and put your mind at rest about their safety.

The term ‘fat burner’ refers to supplements that help you lose weight, and they achieve this in a few ways:

  • Increasing your metabolic rate.
  • Reducing the amount you need to eat.
  • Giving you an energy boost to facilitate more activity.
  • Reducing the amount of fat absorbed from the food you eat.

All fat burning products will use one or more of these mechanisms to help you lose weight, and ‘help’ is the operative word: All must be taken alongside a healthy diet and healthy exercise, as part of a lifestyle with a healthy caloric deficit.

A brief history of fat burners- female exercise

Fat burners have been popular for many years, and this type of supplement has a large – and growing – body of literature supporting it. Research is carried out into the efficacy of fat burners as a whole, as well as detailed investigation into each ingredient.

Fat burners are just one part of the weight loss industry: A huge contender that was worth over $66 billion in the United States in 2017 (1).

There has been a trend over time for fat burners to include ingredients with proven effects, rather than those that make spurious claims. Organisations like the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) carry out analyses of ingredients, along with reviews of scientific articles and other literature. They then publish official opinions on whether ingredients achieve their stated claims.

This is what separates the good fat burners from the bad – and the safe from the unsafe.

When buying fat burners online, choosing a trusted seller is the best way to avoid getting something dangerous.

Which leads us to Amazon…

The Amazon buyer’s guide to fat burners

If you’re in the market for weight loss supplements, the first thing you will probably do is pick up your phone and whack “fat burners” into Google.

And guess what?

You’ll be greeted with literally millions of results. As we said: this is a big industry.

At this point you’ll start to ask questions like “which fat burner is right for me?” Or even, “how do I know which fat burners are safe?”

Because this category of supplement has not been totally free of controversy.

In the past, people have fallen ill – or even died – from taking fat burners that contained dangerous ingredients. In an industry where regulatory approval isn’t needed before products go to market, it is incredibly important to tread carefully, and to fully understand what you are buying.

Top Tips

An increasing amount of Amazon lockers means you can arrange delivery to a convenient location if you will be out of the house.

This is especially important in the age of online shopping. Whereas before you would have to visit a shop and ask a clerk for advice and information – safe in the knowledge that any product that made it to the shelves of a reputable retailer had been vetted – now you can access hundreds or even thousands of products at the click of a button.

This means that before you buy a fat burner online, you should:

  • Trust the seller.
  • Understand what each ingredient does.
  • Understand the role fat burners play in weight loss.
  • Be sure that the supplements are safe in general.
  • Be sure that they are safe for your specific physiology.

Your next port of call will most likely be Amazon, the ubiquitous marketplace that shows up at the top of pretty much every shopping search nowadays.

Their dominance extends to the sale of weight loss supplements, too: According to a recent report, Amazon is responsible for a whopping 77% (2) of all supplement sales made online.

Are there illegal fat burners on Amazon?

You might be surprised that Amazon are profiting from the sale of fat burners, given the reputation for dangerous ingredients we mentioned earlier.

Perhaps you’re even asking yourself perfectly reasonable questions like: “are there illegal fat burners on Amazon?”

Well in truth, the answer is probably not.

Amazon appears to take a sensible approach to the products it lists for sale, with particular care given to those featuring the Best Sellers and Amazon’s Choice tags.

It’s also worth noting that even the sponsored listings are monitored in order to ensure these products meet strict FDA regulations. Ingredients that fall foul of the DEA controlled substances list are not featured, either.

This is why buying fat burners on Amazon is the route many people choose.

’Amazon’s Choice’ and Best Seller fat burner supplements

If you’ve not seen these tags, here’s what they look like:

’Amazon’s Choice’ and Best Seller tags

Best Seller is pretty self explanatory: These are the products that sell best in their respective categories.

It’s worth noting that you may see different Best Seller results depending on the search term you used. See below for an example: The left was the first best seller for “fat burner”, the right was for “weight loss supplement”.

The left was the first best seller for “fat burner”, the right was for “weight loss supplement”.

Amazon’s Choice on the other hand, is a bit more mysterious. The company has been secretive in exactly how these products are chosen, refusing to confirm whether the decision is made by a human being, an algorithm, or some combination of the two.

Why does this matter?

Well,

If a human being is choosing the Amazon’s Choice products for a certain category, it raises the question of their qualifications and authority. Is it an unpaid intern deciding based on which picture looks prettiest, or an industry expert deciding based on the relative merits of each product?

And if an algorithm is making the decision, which factors does it consider? The ratio between 5 star and 1 star reviews? The frequency of negative sentiment in all reviews? Or, as the cynics amongst us might suspect, the products which will make Amazon the most money?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to know.

But what we do know is that Amazon’s Choice products tend to be well received, and make a good starting point for your buyer journey.

If you’ve been wondering how to know which fat burner supplement to buy from Amazon when there’s so much choice, Amazon’s Choice and Best Seller tags would be the place to start looking.

You may also come across advertorial listings, which are marked with the word ‘sponsored’:

Fire bullets sponsored Amazon

For these listings, sellers pay Amazon a fee to appear above the other results. The idea being that people are more likely to click products higher up the page.

But are these products still safe?

Again, the answer is most likely yes. It’s in Amazon’s best interest to feature only safe products, and their sponsored listing information pages explain that adverts are vetted for suitability. There are also “closed categories” where adverts aren’t allowed, suggesting a good level of vigilance and consideration for which product adverts are given the green light.

Top Tips

Reading Amazon reviews can be a good way to get a feel for what people think of a product, but bear in mind these can be manipulated by competitors.

Take what you read with a pinch of salt, and make sure you seek information from a variety of sources before choosing a supplement.

Reasons for buying fat burners on Amazon

There are some pretty convincing reasons for buying fat burners on Amazon:

  • It has become a one stop shop for nearly every category of product you can imagine.
  • Their vast inventory enables them to satisfy customer needs in nearly every sector.
  • Products are vetted to ensure they are trustworthy.
  • Fulfilment centres dotted around the globe mean products can often be delivered directly to your door the next day.

When making the decision to buy a fat burner on Amazon, you’ll want to look at the following things:

  • The seller of the product: Do they exist as a company outside of Amazon? If so, do they have good credentials? Do they offer visibility on where their company is based in real life, and is there an address on their profile?
  • The star rating: This is at-a-glance information about the product’s rating. The higher, the better.
  • The number of reviews: A five star rating with only one review is less reliable than a 4.8 star rating with thousands of reviews.
  • The content of reviews, good and bad: Spend time reading reviews and testimonials to understand the experience of other users.
  • Do reviews contain before and after pictures? This is a must when deciding, as they’re a good indicator of a product’s effectiveness.
  • Any recurring criticisms? If lots of users have mentioned the same problem, this could be a red flag.
  • Any answered questions?: Amazon users can ask questions about products which can be answered by the seller or other customers – these are a good source of info.
  • The product description: Does it sound legitimate? Are any wildly unlikely claims made?

There are also a few things you can look at outside of Amazon, to strengthen your understanding of a product. We recommend putting in the time and effort to research any fat burner that you are considering buying.

  • Reviews outside of Amazon: Try to find reviews in reputable industry publications, written by knowledgeable authors.
  • News articles: Type the name of the supplement and click the ‘News’ tab in Google, to see if there is any bad press coverage.
  • The manufacturer’s website: Do they rank in Google for their own name? Does the site look legitimate?

At this point, you should have a pretty solid understanding of the fat burner product you’re considering buying.

What are the best fat burners on Amazon?

As we’ve said, there’s an enormous selection of fat burners on Amazon. Browse through them and you’ll see so many buzzwords – premium, advanced, xtreme, thermogenic, vegetarian – that it can be hard to keep track of what you’re looking at.

If you’re looking for a bit of guidance, these are our favourite fat burners available on Amazon, based on our extensive knowledge of the industry.

We’ll include the usual disclaimer here: There is not a magic pill for weight loss. All of the fat burners below – and all of the fat burners on the market – should be taken alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise. Weight loss is achieved by maintaining a healthy caloric deficit, and supplements are designed to support these things, not replace them.

Rockstar Skinny Gal Weight Loss Pills For Women

Just like Leanbean, Rockstar Skinny Gal is formulated for female physiology. Their ingredient list claims to be suited to the special requirements of a woman’s body, and tailored to the increased cravings that are experienced by women (this is something documented by scientific literature (2)(3) – we’re not making it up!)

Garcinia Cambogia 95% HCA Pure Extract with Chromium

Garcinia Cambogia can help you to lose weight by making you feel more full after eating, and this mechanism is at the core of this supplement. The formula also includes potassium and calcium to facilitate better absorption.

Burn-XT Thermogenic Fat Burner

As the fire-themed name might suggest, this product focuses on thermogenic ingredients to deliver its weight loss benefits. If you’re not familiar, thermogenesis refers to an increase in temperature, which is linked to an increased metabolic rate. And when your metabolism is working faster, exercise – from workouts to daily activities – burns more calories than it otherwise would.

alli Weight Loss Diet Pills

This supplement reduces the amount of fat your body absorbs from the food you eat. When taken alongside three balanced, reduced-calorie meals per day, alli claims that for each 5lb of weight you would have lost through dieting alone, you can expect to lose another two or three.

NatureWise CLA 1250

These pills use CLA – or Conjugated Linoleic Acid – to stimulate the burning of fat through a thermogenic effect. The CLA is extracted from non-GMO safflower oil, and this supplement contains no stimulant ingredients – a popular option for people who don’t want to take caffeine or other stimulants.

Premium Keto Diet Pills

This product claims to work by encouraging your body to achieve a state of ketosis. If you’re not familiar with ketosis, it’s when your body burns ketones from fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. When taken alongside a low-carb diet, this supplement may help your body to burn through its fat reserves.

Top Tips

The Amazon’s Choice and Best Seller tags signpost the way to trusted and popular products.

Is Leanbean – the female fat burner – sold on Amazon?

Short answer? No, it’s not.

Because despite the merits of buying fat burners through Amazon that we mentioned earlier, there are some aspects of the website that aren’t so great.

The ambiguity of the Amazon’s Choice listings, for example. Or the fact that people can pay to have their product shown above those that may be more effective or popular.

There is also the risk of decision fatigue caused by information overload. When you’re faced with thousands of products it can be hard to know which one to buy, and which information to prioritise. Also, many products on Amazon are often poorly formulated, and we don’t want Leanbean – a premium product with clinically proven ingredients – to get lost amongst lower quality ones.

So we made the decision to sell Leanbean only through our official website.

By doing this, we can ensure customers have access to all the information they need to make an informed purchase.

We can also guarantee that our customers are getting the genuine article.

We realise a lot of people appreciate the convenience of buying things through Amazon, however, so we have made the decision to allow payment on our site to be made with Amazon Pay.

This means payment can be made through your Amazon account, even though you’re not buying through their site.

So to recap, here are the reasons to buy Leanbean through our website:

  • It’s guaranteed to be the genuine article.
  • You have a choice of convenient payment methods.
  • Our support team is on standby.
  • You can enjoy speedy delivery.
  • There’s a no-quibble 90 day refund policy.

In the very unlikely event you have seen Leanbean on Amazon, they are not the genuine article.

Information about Leanbean female fat burner

This section of the article breaks down the ingredients used in Leanbean, giving a bit of information about how each one contributes to weight loss.

Here’s our ingredients list:

Leanbean female fat burner ingredients list

We believe transparency is important, and that our customers should know exactly what they are putting in their body, how much they’re taking, and what each ingredient will do.

Konjac fibre

This is also known as glucomannan, and is a naturally occurring fibre found in the root of the konjac plant.

It’s particularly popular as a weight loss supplement, thanks to its ability to expand when saturated with liquid. The konjac fibre in Leanbean takes up a little bit extra space in your stomach, meaning you feel full more quickly than you otherwise would.

This effect has been specifically acknowledged by the EFSA (the European Food Safety Agency, if you missed the acronym earlier) as effective in a weight loss context (4).

Vitamin B

This vitamin is linked to normal energy-yielding metabolism in your body, which is the process by which you break down fats and sugars into energy to fuel your activities (5)(6).

Keeping your metabolism ticking over at the right rate is important for overall good health, and for making sure your body can correctly burn the fat reserves it has built up when you are exercising.

If you’re looking for more info, you can read our detailed blog post all about vitamin B6 for weight loss.

Chromium

Leanbean uses a form of chromium mixed with picolinic acid called chromium picolinate, and this version has been chosen because your body is able to absorb it more effectively.

The EFSA found that chromium contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism, which is slightly different from the energy-yielding metabolism we saw just now (7). While both keep your body ticking over, this type of metabolism ensures all macronutrients in your body are broken down correctly.

Chromium is also associated with other weight loss effects, including “reduced food intake, hunger levels, and fat craving, and tended to decrease body weight” (8).

We’ve written an article about chromium for weight loss, too. You can read it here.

Natural caffeine

Caffeine is famous for giving you an energy boost, but did you know this can help with weight loss, too?

Scientific studies have found that caffeine boosts exercise performance by increasing stamina, endurance capacity, and alertness (9). All very helpful in fuelling the exercise that forms part of any healthy lifestyle.

Caffeine will also boost your metabolism, too (10).

The caffeine in Leanbean comes from green tea extract, and from green coffee beans (it’s extracted before they are roasted).

Turmeric

A chemical called curcumin can be found in turmeric, and it is thought to be linked to your body’s ability to break down brown adipose tissue (BAT) (11).

When burned, BAT releases heat from the energy stored in fat. This has the combined benefit of reducing fat reserves, and increasing your body temperature. The thermogenic effect of which may help boost your metabolism and burn a few extra calories.

Choline

This mineral contributes to normal lipid metabolism, meaning it helps your body to break down and use fats in the correct way (12).

Your body needs the energy in fat to fuel itself, so it stores excess fat around the body for use later. Everyone has this, and its presence is healthy and necessary.

When you’re losing weight, however, you want to encourage your body to burn more fat than it would otherwise. This is why a healthy lipid metabolism is important!

Choline has been found to help reduce body fat quickly without negative side effects (13)

And there you have it…

Everything you need to know about buying fat burners online, whether you choose to go for Amazon’s expansive marketplace, or the official website of a fat burner like Leanbean (here’s the link to buy Leanbean, if you’re interested).

Hopefully after reading this article you’ll know what to look for, where to look, how to evaluate trustworthy information, and how to choose a fat burner you feel comfortable and confident taking.

We’ve given you a rundown of some of the better fat burning supplements on Amazon, as well as explaining how the ingredients in Leanbean can help with weight loss.

You should be able to find a fat burner that will help you see results. Just remember: healthy diet, good exercise, and a caloric deficit are what lead to weight loss! Fat burning supplements are there to give you that little bit of encouragement.
