Fat-Burners and Fat-Burning Weight Loss Supplements

When the word “fat burner” is used to describe a diet pill or weight loss supplement, the product may contain an amphetamine-like compound with potentially lethal effects on the central nervous system and heart.

The Truth about “Fat-Burners”

“Fat-burners” or “fat-burning” weight loss supplements do not burn or reduce fat in a healthy way.
They do not help you to lose weight.
They are not a safe or effective method of weight control.
They are likely to cause weight gain not weight loss.

Side-Effects of “Fat-Burners”

May include:

  • Rapid or irregular heartbeats (heart arrhythmias).
  • Raised blood pressure.
  • Depression
  • Nervousness.
  • Insomnia.
  • Heart attack or stroke.

Over the past 12 years, the FDA has issued several warnings to consumers of diet products and supplements containing these dangerous “fat-burning” compounds.


 A Note about Healthy Weight Control
Fad diets, unbalanced diets, diet pills, diet supplements, weight loss surgery and other short term weight loss methods are not recommended for permanent weight control. The best way to lose excess fat and maintain a healthy weight in the long term is to follow a balanced calorie-controlled diet (that improves your eating habits) and take regular aerobic exercise.
