Fat Loss Supplements Are Dangerous

Hydroxycut fat loss supplements are dangerous! There I’ve said it! I’ve been hesitant to outwardly state it, but now there’s finally proof. The company that makes the Hydroxycut products has removed 11 products from the shelves of stores in Canada plus an additional three products not sold in Canada after 23 reports of serious liver damage and one death of a 19 year old boy after use of the Hydroxycut products in the US.

I get no satisfaction from saying so, but “I TOLD YOU SO!!”. If you’ve known me for any time, you’ll know that I have never promoted fat loss supplements to my clients or to anyone asking for my advice on how to lost fat.

Whatever small advantage supplements can give is largely negated by the horde of nutritional mistakes most people who seek out these products are making anyway, so to me it’s a complete waste of money.

It works something like this. If you choose to continue to skip breakfast (my number one most important fat loss rule is to have a good breakfast), then you will undoubtedly make poorer food choices all day long including over-eating at dinner and in the evening. So yes, you could take some fat loss supplement like Hydroxycut that costs you $5 a day and maybe, just maybe, it might help counteract this nutritional mistake, but folks, this is a $5/day band-aid for poor eating habits. It doesn’t even begin to help you actually lose fat, it’s just possibly reducing how much fat you are gaining by how poor your nutritional choices are.

This is presuming that Hydroxycut or any other fat loss supplement actually works. A few years ago legislation passed that made ephedrine illegal in the U.S. Ephedrine is probably the only substance that actually has a half decent fat burning effect that in small enough doses in relatively healthy individuals won’t cause any health problems. But of course, marketed to everyone, including severely obese people who have cardiac issues in the first place, ephedrine can be problematic, hence the legislation against it.

So with ephedrine largely off the market, any fat loss supplement that you’re spending your money on likely doesn’t do anything other than burn a hole in your pocket book. And if you haven’t checked, some of these fat loss supplements like Hydroxycut are ridiculously expensive!

If you are serious about fat loss, here are some important rules that you must adhere to. If you can’t manage to stick to these rules, then fat loss just isn’t in your life trajectory!

If you aren’t moving, you aren’t going to lose fat PERIOD! And you don’t have to spend hours on end on boring cardio machines to make it happen. But you do have to work hard enough to generate a serious sweat. Two to three 20-30 minute high intensity fat loss intervals a week is enough.

Strength training, whether using weights, or bodyweight exercises like pushups, chin-ups, and lunges can all help you to build muscle. Muscle uses more calories than any other tissue in your body (except the brain) so the more muscle you have the more calories you burn 24 hours a day!

Have a sensible breakfast that includes a protein, fat, and carbohydrates from healthy sources. For example:
2 eggs (whole… yes including the yolk!!!)
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup milk
1/2 banana
2 tsp Udo’s oil or a few walnut pieces

Research has shown that to maintain energy levels throughout the day and to prevent overeating at main meals, having a small nutritionally balance snack, mid-morning, and mid-afternoon is the key. Snacks should consist of fruit, vegetables, and dairy products, although the limit is your imagination.

Healthy examples for mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks are:

Handful almonds
1 apple
1 oz 2% cheddar cheese


Handful walnuts
1/2 cup organic plain yogurt
1/3 cup blueberries

How much you eat at your snacks depends on your activity level and your bodyweight. Smaller people generally need to eat less and if you’re nursing a desk all day long, then opt for vegetables instead of fruit if possible.


Chicken salad with spinach, pine nuts, tomato, and a low fat dressing

I already covered breakfast, but the same principle applies for lunch and dinner. Start with a protein choice, add a healthy fat choice, add unlimited vegetables, and finish with appropriate carbohydrates depending on your energy requirements.

If you’re going out to play hockey in the evening, then eating chicken and spinach isn’t going to provide you with much energy to play. So be sure to have a serving of brown rice or sweet potato. You could even have a mixed bean salad with dinner which would provide you with enough carbohydrate energy to last you through your hockey game.

If your evening activities are limited to helping the kids with homework and making their lunches, then your dinner can skip the starchy carbs (if fat loss is your main goal) and focus solely on a variety of vegetable sources.

It seems for some that dessert is just part of the day. Some people eat dessert every single night. I think it starts as a kid, and depending on whether or not your parents gave you dessert every night, many people carry this throughout their lives.

Folks… you don’t HAVE to have dessert every night! Yes, it’s nice.. I enjoy it too. But if you have fat to lose, daily dessert is guaranteed to keep your bodyfat right where it is, and possibly even increase it. Think of it this way. Eating a dessert is like not doing 30 minutes of exercise. So if you want to eat a dessert each day, you’ll need 30 minutes of exercise daily to counter it so that you don’t gain any bodyfat. So if you actually want to lose bodyfat then you need to do even more.

It’s much easier to skip the dessert 4 or 5 nights of the weekk, enjoy it the other two or three nights, get your 2-3 sessions of cardio in, and lose the bodyfat!

Other than milk, if you drink soft drinks or juices (sugar free or not) you can forget about losing body fat. It’s just that simple. Liquid calories are one of the main causes of increased body fat. Diet soft drinks in very small quantities are ok, but if you’re putting back more than one can of diet soft drinks a day, then you will also have a hard time losing body fat. Your brain recognizes the sweetness of the artificial sweeteners in these products and releases insulin in much the same way as it does in response to actual sugars! Can’t trick your brain!

I can almost guarantee that everyone who has too much bodyfat drinks too little water. Get your water consumption up and you’ll be surprised what it can do for your fat loss efforts. Starting with reducing your cravings for junk, much of the time people confuse the early signals for thirst with hunger.

One to two hours after each meal, drink 250-500ml of water and notice a reduction in cravings for junk food. It’s a free, no brainer! Mess this one up.. and well.. stay as you are! Your choice!

Alcoholic beverages like wine have a somewhat culturistic place in our society it seems, and some people feel like it is an afront to their righs and dignity to suggest that they shoudn’t have their wine with dinner. And while for folks who are lean, and who exercise and eat a generally healthy diet, their wine consumption isn’t a problem. But if you aren’t doing everything else right (diet & exercise), then wine is just like dessert… extra calories!

Beer, mixed drinks, and wine all contribute to increasing calories. Don’t fool yourself into justifying yourself out of getting the fat loss results you seek. Trust me, once you get rid of the body fat, you can re-introduce these pleasures with little effect, but until then… their consumption is your choice to not change your body!

I know…. I’m mean!

Well I hope this information helps give you some concrete steps you can take towards getting rid of any unwanted body fat without the use of harmful (and mostly useless) fat loss supplements!
