Everyone is always looking for an easy way to burn fat. Well let me start by saying that this is not a magical fat burner that requires no effort. Grenade Thermo Detonator is said to be the number one best selling fat burner on the market. It consistently has, on average, good reviews all over the internet and is the most popular fat burner. This in conjunction with a persuasive advertising video made me buy this fat burner.
The design and whole feel of this product is spot on. Grenade make a variety of supplements for the likes of fitness and bodybuilding, and this is perhaps their most well-known. All their products have a military theme to them, hence this is called Grenade Thermo Detonator. It is quite clever as their main market (teenagers and young males) are attracted by this image of strength and power - both physical and mental.
This product comes in a box with a plastic window displaying the grenade inside. The container is shaped rather accurately like a frag grenade, which looks really cool. The lid is the most annoying part of the product. Once you finally figure how to snap the main lid off using the handle, you are faced with one more layer to get through. There is an oval lid covering the capsules within. This is extremely hard to get off, and did not really get any easier throughout using and becoming familiar with the product. What tends to happen is you finally get this lid off and the capsules inside fly all over the room - this happened countless times with me so be warned!
The capsules inside (there are 100 of them) are green in colour and of a reasonable size. They look like hardcore drugs, and they do contain some kick.
*How To Use*
It is advised that you take:
* 2 capsules first thing in the morning on an empty stomach before breakfast
* 2 capsules before lunchtime
You should take both capsules with a reasonable amount of water so they don't get stuck in your throat as they aren't that small. If you have never used anything like it before and do not have a high caffeine intake, it is best to test your tolerance by taking one capsule twice a day for a week or so first. You are advised to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day - basically keep hydrated! The ingredients in these capsules can make you lose a lot of body water, so it is vital to keep well-hydrated. I have no problem taking these and they do not cause me any problems such as reflux.
I would recommend taking the maximum dose (2 capsules twice a day) for three days and then having an off day. This gives your body a chance to adapt once you start taking them again. Not only does this improve your body's response to the capsules, but also they will last that bit longer! This regimen got me the best results so I would recommend this.
*How They Work*
Grenade Thermo Detonator contains the following active ingredients:
Per two capsules:
Green Tea 500mg
Bitter Orange Powder 420mg
Green Coffee 10mg
This mixture of ingredients is all natural and has some evidence to support fat and weight loss. The caffeine adds to this and enhances your metabolism, also providing you with focus and alertness if used alongside training. The most effective ingredient is probably the Green Tea extract, as this has solid evidence behind it supporting fat loss. The other ingredients (besides caffeine) are somewhat limited in evidence. The green tea extract is of highest concentration in these capsules compared to any other product on the market, making it a great choice.
*Achieving Fat Loss*
It is vital to understand that these 'fat burners' alone will not cause your fat to fall off! Two other things come into play:
Firstly, you must have a healthy diet and ideally reduce your daily caloric intake to maximise the benefits of these capsules. This is something that I learnt after taking them for a while. A healthy diet should consist of three balanced meals a day including a good variety of meat (protein), GOOD carbs and GOOD fats. Good carbs include ones with a low glycaemic index (if you're not sure what this means, look it up) with the likes of sweet potato, wholegrain pasta and rice, beans and vegetables. Good fats include those with a LOW SATURATED fat content and higher in mono/polyunsaturated fats and the Omega 3s and 6s. Some foods include oily fish, flax seed oil/powder, nuts, avocados and olive oil. Cutting your portion sizes and therefore reducing the daily calories you take in will help to shed the extra fat as your body will burn more in order to keep functioning - especially alongside these capsules.
Secondly, exercise is key to success. Anything that will get your heart rate up should work fine. You need to push yourself through the mental brick walls to succeed. Running, swimming and cycling are all great. Doing cardio with high intensity interval training (HIIT) methods work well alongside these capsules.
So whilst taking the recommended doses of these capsules with a good diet and at least 30 mins of exercise 5 times a week, I would be very surprised if you did not see some results.
*What Else is There To Know?*
1. These capsules contain a lot of caffeine! 225mg every dose (2 capsules) is equivalent to three cups of coffee. This helps with the fat burning process and in providing you with some energy, but has all the effects of caffeine at the same time. If you are sensitive, you may get insomnia and headaches. It also makes you wee a lot!
2. I cannot express enough how important diet and exercise are in conjunction with taking these. I took these for about a month with a lacking diet and exercise regimen, and I barely saw results. To achieve results and get value for money, it is important to plan your diet and exercise routine before using these.
*Price & Availability*
The cheapest you will find these is for around £30. This contains 100 capsules. There is also a new 44 capsule grenade available, which costs around £21. You can buy Grenade Thermo Detonator online at places like Amazon and eBay. It is also available offline in fitness shops and even Holland & Barrett.
Firstly, I have to say the main flaw in the product is the lid design. I have had capsules flying all over the room trying to get it off until it finally gives way! Regarding the use of the product, I saw myself the benefits of having a healthy diet and good volume of exercise whilst using this product. I was able to lose body fat (measured on scales at the gym) whilst taking these, which was more than normal. I also feel full of energy whilst taking them due to the caffeine and the fact that I know they are doing something good. They are easy to take and in the form of pills they are very portable to be taken away with you so you don't miss your dose.
Grenade Thermo Detonator is a useful adjunct in the battle against fat. Having stressed the importance of diet and exercise, I can assure that you should see results with these capsules. If not, I would try to further improve your diet and do more exercise. It's all a matter of balance - what goes in and what comes out! The more you eat, the harder it will be to lose fat. The less exercise you do, the harder it will be to shift the fat. Although reasonably pricey at £30 for around 33 days worth (using my recommended regimen above), I think it is worth it for their results. They are great for bodybuilders and for everyone willing to put the effort in to lose fat. Having browsed many other fat burners on the market, these are one of your best bets at getting the job done.
I have bought this over the last year 3 times.
I was quite wary of certain products which had claims of burning fat, like they were a miracle pill. This is not that. Although you can feel it working, you do get a feeling of heartburn if eaten on a empty stomach. Can leave a funny after taste and due to the size of pills can be hard to swallow for people who have trouble with pills.
I would take this an hour before my work out and the sweat would just pour off, in comparison to the days i didnt take it. Now some people might think this is similar to what happens when you wear a sweat suit, but it is not. A sweat suit just, as it says makes you sweat more, so you really only lose water weight. This actually increase you metabolism, even standing still you can feel its effect. The first time i used it i had to sit down, it is that powerful. One warning is that you must drink alot of water, and keep on eye on how hydrated you are.
I used this with other products such as creatine and protein shakes for just over one month and had lost over 5kg. While this seemed alot more due to an increase of muscle i must of built up during this time. This in contrast to me just using creatine and protein prior to this made a massive difference.
plus when you open the 'grenade' it is so hard to open it will pop open and explode pills everywhere if you arent careful.
Today I am reviewing a supplement called 'Grenade'. Grenade is one of if not the best fat burners on the market today. This product is sold in most if not all health and supplement stores, this is the perfect fat burner for the typical type of bodybuilder to someone who is just wanting to lose weight male or female.
You can buy this supplement from a lot of bodybuilding web sites, or in my case the best place you can find them is at www.ebay.co.uk and they range from as little as £30.
The reason why I have used Grenade is because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about with it being claimed as the top fat burner on the market. And also to help shed that extra bit of fat ready for the summer.
Information on Grenade
Grenade fat burner comes in a green Grenade like looking tub. There are step by step instructions on the box and contained inside the packaging. The tub it self is very hard to open so be careful that you do twist off the handle too much that the pills go flying around. The product comes in one standard size of 100 capsules.
This supplement contains:
Green tea 500mg
Bitter orange peel 420mg
Green coffee 10mg
Other ingredients are: magnesium stearate, gelatin capsules, (purified water colours are E133, E102 & E129), titanium dioxide.
Take two capsules upon waking; take two capsules 30 minutes prior to lunch with water.
My advice is to start by taking 1 capsule 2 x daily. If you can tolerate this then move on to 2 capsules 2 x daily.
Stay well hydrated!
Once you have taken your capsules you will and should notice a burning feeling inside your stomach, this is perfectly normal as this is part of the process of the fat burner to indicate that it is working.
You will also feel full of energy and also sweat a considerable amount. Whilst on these fat burners and at there peak use to its advantages by doing cardio or the gym or any physical type of activity.
This supplement left no bitter or foul taste during or after being swallowed. The tablets are large in size so if you do tend to struggle taking tablets then maybe this product is not for you.
Value for money
I found this product excellent in price and a fair amount of capsules to be given. I truly thought that this product was just another gimmick on the market as a selling point. But once I tried this product I was amazed to see results from as little after my first tub. This supplement helped me gain confidence back in my ability to walk around with my shirt off and also give me no fear once stepping into the pool.
Difference in appearance
For me this supplement worked from as little after my first tub, for others this will take considerably longer. In my opinion I would buy two tubs and run them back to back then take one month solid rest before starting again.
You will see differences not only in yourself but by the shape of your body and the way that your cloths are fitted on you. After taking two tubs you will not feel any come down effects or cravings regarding wanting to take this supplement. I did notice that I wasn't as full of energy once I had stop taking these.
I will continue to buy this supplement again as the results for me combined with a controlled diet and exercise program truly worked.
Overall Grenade is the leading and best fat burner on the market. It does what it says by burning fat and increasing energy. This product will help those lacking confidence, once taking or after the cycle. Be sure to stay focused and eat clean and stay controlled with your eating habits, and you will see results. Always consult your doctor before taking these or any other type of fat burners and stay well hydrated.
I bought the Grenade fat burner pills after I've done one month online research. I bought them online on a next day delivery as I was desperate to try them. Nice and attractive packaging and they actually come in a grenade shape bottle which is quite cool. I do understand that all bodies are different and they do function different, I also suffer of hypothyroidism, however these pills really made me sick, no energy at all and I was eating much more than usual. I have taken the pills for a month because with some of those supplements the body needs to get used to them so you do need to give them a chance, I was also on a calorie control diet but not exercising a lot just a 20 min walk a day. The only positive thing was that I was quite thirsty and it made me drink a lot of liquids which I never did before. I found them also difficult to swallow as they pretty big. They are a lot of positive reviews on this supplement but if you have a thyroid condition I think they will not work for you.
Grenade Thermo Detonator is a state of the art fat burner designed to energise your metabolism; Thermo Detonator is possibly the strongest legal fat burner supplement on the market.
