Speeding Up Your Metabolism

          To get that sought after ripped physique you have to get your body fat percentage between 8 - 10 %.   So in order to burn fat you have to find ways of speeding up your metabolism. Speeding up your metabolism helps you burn more calories which will make your body access fat stores to provide your muscles with energy.
         When it comes to weight loss supplements and fat burners there is a lot of choice on the market and it's not always easy to pick what's best for you. When picking a weight loss supplement and fat burner there are 3 categories that you should be looking at :-

         1. Thermogenic Metabolism Boosters

         2. Fat Mobilising Transporters

         3. Whey Protein Powders

        Thermogenics - A 'Thermogenic Fat Burner' is a nutrition supplement that provides the fastest results and the most powerful way to target fat. Thermogenics are formulations of specific ingredients ( usually in capsule form ) which speed up your metabolism functions, which leads to burning more calories which will cause your body to access body fat stores to provide the extra energy needed. In giving you a dramatic energy and motivational boost, you can train harder and longer which will turn yor body into a fat burning machine. 2 -3 Servings a day to be taken on an empty stomach are the usual recommendations for 'Thermogenic Fat Burners'. Also to maintain the long term effectiveness of Thermo's it's best to 'cycle' them by making sure you have consistent 'off ' breaks.

        Fat Transporters - ' Fat Transporters' or ' Fat Mobilisers ' are an alternative for those who prefer to avoid the stimulation of Thermo's. The amino acid called L-Carnitine is the key active ingredient in this category. There are different forms of L- Carnitine including L-Carnitine Tartrate, L-Carnitine Base but the most effective is L-Carnitine Fumerate. L-Carnitine is naturally found in your body and the foods you eat. It is mainly used to transport fats from your bodies fat stores into your muscle cells for use as energy.
       To 'turn on' optimum fat burning and weight loss by supplementing your diet with L-Carnitine, you will increase the bodies reserves of this essential fat moving nutrient. L-Carnitine will also give you increased feelings of energy and exercise endurance, plus will improve your recovery. As with Thermo's, L-Carnitine is best taken twice a day on an empty stomach because there are some foods that will block the effect it has on the body.

        Whey Protein - An excellent fat loss tool is Whey protein. As you'll know, if you are into your nutrition, all protein foods are Thermogenic. Protein foods cause your body to burn calories to digest them, which therefore boosts your metabloism. You can take advantage of this calorie burning effect plus provide impoortant building blocks for lean muscle preservation by regularly taking a Whey protein shake.
        Another benefit from taking a Whey protein shake regularly is that the amino acid L-Phenylalanine is present, which keeps your appetite under control by promoting feelings of fullness. The reasons bodybuilders and fitness models drink a lot of Whey protein shakes when dieting is because it contains naturally high levels of  L-Phenylalanine. 2 to 4 servings a day is best for maximum fat loss benefits. Also Whey powder is an ideal additional source for breakfast and post workout meals as these are the most important times of the day to eat protein for a bodybuilder.
