I think with my busy life it would be awesome to have that extra get up and go when I don’t have time to hit the gym. A little bit of extra push to help me melt away the pounds would be nice. And not having to depend on coffee would be a big plus.
This is the reason I decided to look into this whole green tea thing. I like green tea so I didn’t think it could hurt. I took a look at Applied Nutrition's Green Tea Fat Burner with EGCG.
How Does Applied Nutrition’s Green Tea Fat Burner Work?
According to the product description on Amazon, Green Tea Fat Burner “maximizes powerful thermogenic action in fast-release Liquid Soft-Gels.”
I wasn’t sure exactly what that meant so I had to do a bit of research. It turns out that EGCG boosts the metabolism significantly. A rough 600mg per day dose can be equivalent to thirty minutes of light exercise.
The combination of EGCG and caffeine found in green tea helps to suppress appetite while slowly burning calories. I would find general use simple enough. The directions state to take one pill three times a day.
What Others Are Saying About Applied Nutrition’s Green Tea Fat Burner
As far as fat burners go, consumers want a product that is easy to take without any serious side effects. Many users have experienced consistent results while using this product.
Opinions seem rather parallel to reviewer K. Medeiros, that Green Tea Fat Burner does little to help burn fat, but instead provides a nice energy boost throughout the day. "My appetite has definitely been curbed", Medeiros says in his review.
A couple other reviewers, like Sam Nelson, talked about great success with this program. Weight loss was rapid and controlled with no discomforts. Sam can now fit in a shirt that wouldn’t fit him before.
Tina, who has been taking the pill for two months, mentioned a toning effect. General flabby fat started to disappear from around the thighs, under arms, and love handle area. It did not appear like weight was being lost, but just had a slimming, toning effect. “My back has less fat, my thighs have slimmed down”, she says.
How Much Weight Will You Lose?
Mileage may vary between consumers. I could not find an advertised amount of expected weight to lose from Applied Nutrition. Nor could I find any figures from reported weight lost. The few that did lose weight mentioned pounds a day, but no hard numbers.
The biggest side effect I noticed is jitteriness and anxiety. This often occurred from users who stated that they ingested more then the recommended pills each day, or are sensitive to caffeine. Green tea does contain caffeine so I would regulate the amount of coffee and soda you ingest with these pills.
Dehydration was also reported. A constant feeling of thirstiness had been felt, along with frequent urination. Many suggested that drinking plenty of water did not remedy the situation either.
One person did report feeling queasy from taking the supplement. Shortly after digestion, the stomach began feeling uneasy and having a constant feeling of needing to vomit. A remedy was easily found by just taking the pill along with a full meal.
The last complaint was head aches. A few users reported mild headaches after use. Headaches varied in strength from mild to migraine.
Problems And Complaints
Not unsurprisingly, many of the complaints are the side effects felt during use. H. Malinowski stated, “I repeat, do not take more than three pills a day” after experiencing a terrible migraine from ingesting five pills spread throughout the day. Others found the dehydration worrisome. And others felt the jitteriness. Outside of the side effects, I could not find any other complaints.
Did You Know?
EGCG is one of the few weight loss supplements that has been clinically proven to assist in loosing weight? Multiple studies have shown that the caffeine and antioxidants help rid your body of free radicals while suppressing appetite. Other studies have shown that significant levels of EGCG can actually burn as many calories as light exercise. It’s also a completely natural substance.
How Does Green Tea Fat Burner Rate Over All?
Weight loss was seldom reported, or was slow. Green Tea Fat Burner assisted a lot more with energy and to suppress appetite. The over all effect didn’t seem to vary much from a few cups of coffee but with the health benefits of green tea. As far as fat loss supplements, the price is much cheaper then others but I would consider this more of an energy booster.
