CAFFEINE

Although research about the connection between caffeine and weight isn’t definitive, there are a few theories about how caffeine might affect weight, including:

  • Appetite suppression. Caffeine may reduce your desire to eat for a brief time, but there’s not enough evidence to show that long-term consumption aids weight loss.
  • Calorie burning. Caffeine may stimulate thermogenesis — one way your body generates heat and energy from digesting food. But this probably isn’t enough to produce significant weight loss. Thermogenesis converts calories into heat energy. The additional calories used by thermogenesis can potentially aid in weight loss and fat burning. The mechanism by which caffeine stimulates thermogenesis, however, is not known. A study published in 2012 in “Food & Function” noted that caffeine is a thermogenic agent that may be useful in maintaining a healthy body weight and that its effects are dose-dependent. The study also noted that although caffeine does enhance thermogenesis, it also simultaneously restores energy, which may compensate for the additional energy spent.

The bottom line: Be cautious about using caffeine products to help with weight loss. When used in moderation (400 milligrams or less) by healthy adults, caffeine is generally safe. But too much caffeine might cause nervousness, insomnia, nausea, increased blood pressure and other problems.

CAFFEINE RIGHT BEFORE EXERCISING ASSISTS IN FAT LOSS

What caffeine does is increase free flowing fatty acids from your fat stores allowing you to access fat instead of carbs or lean muscle for energy. If you have a bit of stubborn body fat, a bit of caffeine right before working out can help you isolate it. If you do chose to ingest caffeine before working out, make sure and make the most of your workout. Push hard! Also…drink a bit of water, because caffeine is a slight diuretic and you don’t want to get dehydrated.

 

 

CLENBUTEROL

Clenbuterol falls into a group of drugs known as beta-2-agonists. Clenbuterol shares similarities with stimulant drugs (i.e. increase heart rate, blood pressure, perspiration, etc.) such as adrenalin (ephedrine) and amphetamines.

Clenbuterol was initially developed as a bronchodilator for the treatment and alleviation of symptoms of equine asthma.

Clenbuterol

 

 

 

 

Clenbuterol helps to promote fat loss, a bit of water loss from diuresis, and the potential for a gain in lean muscle mass. The loss of fat,particularly when using Clenbuterol, is a process with many steps, two of which are especially important. First of all, fat storage occurs in fat cells, also called fat sacs. These fat cells store fat tissue as triglycerides. As the fat cells are filled with increasing numbers of triglycerides, they become bigger and bigger. This is lipogenesis, the process by which fat is stored. The fat sacks only get bigger by storing more triglycerides, and their size only decreases when triglycerides are removed. The fat cells themselves don’t ever die, and the only way to remove them is through radiation or surgery such as liposuction. The process of fat storage is called lipogenesis and the process by which fat is lost is called lipolysis.

Overall fat loss begins with lipolysis, the method by which triglycerides (fat) are taken out of the fat cells, broken down into free fatty acids and carried away into the blood stream. Once they are circulating in the blood, they are then oxidized. Until this oxidation process, the fatty acids aren’t metabolized into fuel. In the step of free fatty acid oxidation, cells within the body use the circulating free fatty acids as fuel within the cell mitochondria. The fatty acids will make their way into the fibers and cells of the muscles and other body cells, so that the mitochondria can use them as energy. This oxidation is the step that limits the rate of fat loss. Because of this, the body can only lose fast as fast as it can convert the free fatty acids through oxidation.

The above explanation of the process of fat loss, including lipolysis and the oxidation of free fatty acids, needs to be maximized if you want to get the most out of your fat loss on Clenbuterol. The oxidation of free fatty acids is the step that limits your rate of fat loss. In the case of Clenbuterol, the process of lipolysis will be sped up so that there are more fatty acids in the bloodstream. However, if you aren’t burning these off through exercise and diet, these free fatty acids will still be released because of the Clenbuterol. But they can only be used as the cell mitochondria burns them. If they aren’t being converted to energy, the body will only turn them back into triglycerides and put them back into storage in the fat cells they came out of in the first place.

In simple terms, if you don’t burn more calories than you take in, you won’t lose weight with Clenbuterol. Also, if you dont exercise & train properly  so that the body’s mitochondria use the excess free fatty acids, you will limit the results you experience with Clenbuterol. Clenbuterol does boost your metabolism by a significant degree, but to get the most from this fat burner you will need aerobic exercise and/or a healthy diet that creates a calorie deficit. If you have these two components, your body can then burn the free fatty acids that Clenbuterol releases, through the cell mitochondria, so that they are used for energy and metabolized effectively.

 

 

T3 & T4 HORMONES

T3 means triiodothyronine

T4 means tetraiodothyronine

Both are the thyroid hormones. T3 is only 20% of the amount of thyroid hormones synthesized. The other 80% is T4.

Thyroid stimulating hormone is released from the pituitary gland and forms a feedback loop with both T3 and T4. Therefore, when the plasma levels of the thyroid hormone falls, TSH production is increased and when the thyroid hormones rise above their normal plasma levels, TSH production is reduced.

The control over the release of TSH itself is found in thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) which is released from the hypothalamus.

T3 T4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Medications like T3 and T4 are used to manage thyroid conditions, particularly an under-functioning thyroid. While they do cause weight loss, these drugs should not be used to help you lose weight if you have normal thyroid function.

Thyroid medication causes weight loss by speeding up your body’s metabolism. It will make your body burn more calories each day, even while you sleep. If you have an underactive thyroid, taking this kind of medication will result in rather rapid weight loss, especially if you are already dieting and exercising. If your thyroid is functioning normally, you will not lose weight taking normal doses of thyroid medication. The only way to lose weight would be to overdose on it. Such an overdose can cause severe and even life-threatening problems. Furthermore, thyroid medication causes you to lose muscle, especially if your thyroid is normal, according to a study published in the March 1997 issue of “the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.” While the combination of fat loss and muscle loss will make it seem like you’re losing a large amount of weight at the beginning, your weight loss will slow and eventually stop. Muscle tissue burns a significant amount of calories, so its loss will slow down your metabolism, making it harder to maintain your weight loss or lose weight in the future. Furthermore, most people, especially athletes, find excessive muscle loss unappealing.

 

 

ORLISTAT

Orlistat is a medicine that can help you to lose weight if you are obese or overweight. It works by blocking chemicals (enzymes) in your gut which digest fat. Nearly a third of the fat that you eat is blocked by orlistat. The undigested fat is not absorbed into your body, and is passed out with your faeces (stools). The normal dose is one capsule – 120 mg, three times a day with each meal. However, you do not need to take one if there is no fat in the meal or if you miss a meal.

Orlistat is the only medicine available to prescribe to help with weight loss.

Take this medication as directed by your doctor, by mouth with liquid sometime during each meal that contains fat or within 1 hour after the meal, usually 3 times daily. If you miss a meal or your meal contains no fat, skip that dose of the medication. To decrease the chance of unpleasant side effects, it is very important that no more than 30% of the calories in your diet come from fat. Your daily intake of fat, protein, and carbohydrates should be evenly spread over 3 main meals.

The main side-effects are caused by the fat which is passed out with your faeces. You may get fatty smelly stools, urgency to get to the toilet, oily spotting on your underclothes, and excess wind. These side-effects are less likely if you eat a low-fat diet. They tend to settle with time, possibly because if they occur they remind you that you should be eating a low-fat diet. Other side-effects are rare.  Please see the leaflet that comes with your medicine for full list of possible side-effects and cautions.

Because this drug can interfere with the absorption of certain vitamins (fat-soluble vitamins including A, D, E, K), a daily multivitamin supplement containing these nutrients is recommended. Take the multivitamin at least 2 hours before or 2 hours after taking orlistat (such as at bedtime).

 

 

METFORMIN

It’s one of the single most prescribed medications for type 2 diabetics.

Metformin is used to treat diabetes, but several studies show that it also helps non-diabetics to lose weight by reducing hunger.

You may be overweight because your body makes too much insulin, especially if your store your fat primarily in your belly. When you eat, your blood sugar level rises. The higher it rises, the more insulin your pancreas releases. Insulin makes you fat by acting on your brain to make you hungry, your liver to manufacture fat, and the fat cells in your belly to fill with fat. So the treatment for this type of obesity is to avoid foods that cause the highest rise in blood sugar and to take medications that prevent your blood sugar levels from rising too high. Avoid bakery products, pastas and all foods made from flour, fruit juices and everything with added sugar. Eat fruits and root vegetables such as potatoes only with meals.

Metformin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After you eat, sugar goes from your intestines into your bloodstream, and then immediately into your liver. Then your liver releases sugar back into your bloodstream to cause your blood sugar level to rise. To keep blood sugar levels from rising too high, your pancreas release insulin into your bloodstream. Insulin makes you hungry all the time and causes your liver to convert extra calories to fat and it constricts arteries to cause heart attacks. You need insulin to keep blood sugar levels from rising too high to cause diabetes, nerve damage, heart attacks, strokes and kidney damage. Metformin reduces sugar release from your liver to prevents blood sugar levels from rising too high, so your body doesn’t need to produce as much insulin that makes you hungry and causes your liver to make fat
