What Are Weight Loss Supplements and Do They Work?

“I need to tone up.”

“Why can’t I burn this stubborn fat?!”

“I want to look leaner.”

Chances are, one of these thoughts have crossed your mind at some point on your fitness journey. The internet is awash with fitness bloggers offering expert advice on how to shred fat, burn calories and with programs promising to transform your body after a mere week or two so, you’d think losing body fat would be a doddle – right?

The fact of the matter is, there are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to shredding body fat. Of course, diet and exercise are key – it’s not rocket science! But weight loss supplements can contribute to a leaner physique and decreased body fat.

Now, *disclaimer alert*, we’re not saying that popping a tablet or two will melt away unwanted fat. Weight loss supplements can assist in fat loss when used alongside a healthy diet and an active lifestyle. But remember to use any supplements as per the directions on the packaging for best results. Want to know more? Well, here’s the lowdown on our weight management product range, including the legendary Thermo Detonator®.

What are weight loss supplements?

There are a variety of different weight loss supplements on the market. Our Thermo Detonator® and Black Ops® capsules are both made from high-quality, fat burning ingredients, including green tea extract and cayenne. They also include caffeine, which provides you with the energy needed to power through your workout and achieve your desired results. Thermo Detonator® and Black Ops® can support weight loss and a leaner physique, however, it’s important to remember that these results are dependent on using the supplements alongside a healthy, balanced diet and a regular training regime.

How Do Weight Management Supplements Work?

All weight loss supplements work differently and it’s important to refer to the packaging for each supplement to ensure you are using them correctly. Thermo Detonator® and Black Ops® feature ingredients that help promote fat loss, such as green tea extract and cayenne. They also include high levels of caffeine, helping to power your workouts and ensure you get the most out of your session. This boost of energy will enable you to work hard, meaning better results.

Are they effective?

The efficacy of weight loss supplements varies per person. When taking Thermo Detonator® and Black Ops®, it is important to remember that best results are achieved when used alongside a healthy, balanced diet and a regular workout regime. Weight loss supplements should not be used as a quick fix; as the word supplement suggests, you can supplement your existing healthy regime with these products to enhance your results.

When should you take them?

It’s essential that you follow the instructions of use for each supplement, as every weight loss product will vary. However, when taking Thermo Detonator®, it’s recommended that you take 2 capsules upon waking and a further 2 capsules at lunch time. If you’re new to Thermo Detonator®, take just 2 capsules per day for the first week to assess tolerance. Black Ops® should be consumed the same way as Thermo Detonator®, however, due to it’s shorter duration of action, you can take your second serving of Black Ops® later on in the day if you prefer and, despite the fact it contains caffeine, this won’t interfere with your sleep. Black Ops® provides a short burst of energy, while Thermo Detonator® provides sustained energy throughout the day. This makes Black Ops® an ideal option for later workouts or sessions where an intense burst of energy is needed, such as HIIT.

How often should you take them?

All weight loss supplements differ, so always refer to the packaging to see when and how often you should consume. When taking Thermo Detonator® and Black Ops®, it’s recommended that you consume up to 4 capsules per day for best results; take two capsules upon waking and a further two at lunch time or, with Black Ops®, you can save your second serving for later on in the evening ahead of a post-work gym session. Due to it’s shorter duration of action, consuming later on in the day won’t interfere with your sleep.

Are there any side effects?

It is recommended that you assess tolerance of Thermo Detonator® and Black Ops® by taking just 1 capsule per serving for the first week. Always read the ingredients label before consuming any supplements to ensure they do not contain any ingredients that you are allergic to.

What should you consider before buying them?

Before purchasing weight loss supplements, it is vital to understand that they are not a magic fix. In order to get the best results for your supplements, you need to take them alongside a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise. It’s also important to read all of the supplement ingredients and information before you buy to ensure you’re comfortable with the ingredients they contain and to make sure you’re aware of how and when to consume them.

It's predominantly aimed at male users but is safe for women to use too.
