Coming up to the summer each year, what do all guys do, including myself? Try and get ripped for the beach, and this is the supplement to do it with!
As the name would suggets, Ripped Fuel is exactly that; gives you that extra push to lose fat. I have tried other fat loss supplements in the past, but find this to be most effective, as you can really start to notice the results.
Now it obviously goes without saying, that you do need to exercise, otherwise you wont see any difference, but this will boost your workouts in the gym. After taking the tablets, which come in capsule form, I found I got a energetic feeling about 30 minutes after, and cant sit still-just what you need when you are about to workout!
So it gets you pumped up, ready for exercise and actually speeds up your metabolism so you burn extra caloires, but thats not all it does. This actually surpresses your appeitite, so you are not as hungry, which I would normally find myself feeling that way as I diet at the same time as taking these to maximise the effect.
One of the problems I have when trying to lose weight is that i tend to lose a lot of muscle too, but this tends to slow down and protect the muscle you have.
A bottle of these will last around a month, and you can pick them up for around £30 depending on where you shop, so they actually work out quite good value for money. They dont escaspe the fact that you will need to be strict with your food and exercise enough, but they will give you that added boost. Its also important to remember tht when you lose fat, you lose it everywhere. Its almost like taking layers off yourself each time you lose the fat, so the last place the fat normally comes off is the stomach, becuase we tend to hold the most there.
Twinlab's Ripped Fuel comes in two distinct versions. The One sold in the UK and the one sold in the US. The US version is a combination of Ephedrine and other products which creates a fantastic fat burning effect. University studies show that Epehdrine and Caffeine combined can increas the amount of fat burned daily by as much as 413%. However, and this is the big problem with the UK product, Ephedrine is not available in the UK. This means the products have to use a variety of other substances (normally Nor-ephedrine or as in this case Synephedrine) which while they may be effective are not quite the same. Now that is out of the way, what is Ripped Fuel like? Well when you first try it you really notice the effect. About an hour after your first dose you start to get a little bit hyper - nothing over the top, just very active. This is the ideal time and it really lets you know something is working. The downside is that this effect does wear off after a week or two of use and long term the fat burning effects are not that great. Look at an increase of about 1/2lb a week over your normal diet and exercise. If you are a total couch potato you will lose about 1lb a week on this as it also suppresses the appetite. In conclusion, I dont really think this is all that good a fat burner - its best use is as a pre-workout stimulant. For that it is excellent. Take two tabs about an hour before you exercise. Bonus!
