All the major supplement companies claim to have the best supplements for fat loss…and most are lying. Here’s the truth.

Among all genres of supplements fat burners are surrounded by the most misinformation and blatant lies.

We’re going through an obesity epidemic and it’s reaching far more than just the US. I mean, a third of the entire damn world is overweight according to BMI. The. Entire. World.

It’s clearly an issue of habit formation, easy access to food that happens to be unhealthy but oh so delicious, and a society that places more value on mind than body leading to a lot more sedentary work than before.

But as long as there is science to suggest that a pill could help you lose fat, which there is, and people promising that their pills will make all the pain go away, then there’s going to be a market for them.

Don’t get me wrong, I do believe in the concept of fat burners. Even the best ones are far from magic bullets, but they can help speed the process up a bit…
