Fat Loss Supplements

When we talk about wanting to lose weight, what we are really talking about is a wish to lose body fat. This is because having too much fat and where it is stored in our bodies are what pose risks to our health. Excess fat stored in the waist is linked to a higher risk of heart disease, high blood sugar, and many other health issues. The basis of any weight loss plan should involve eating healthy foods and getting daily exercise. To lose weight we need to take in fewer calories than the body uses each day, increase the calories you burn through exercise, or both. The body gets energy it needs from food through a process called metabolism. Some alternative health providers think herbs and other ingredients in fat loss supplements may help raise metabolism. Studies are still needed to support their use as a safe and effective aid to weight loss.
