Fat burners actually do help in aiding a person to lose fat. The reason why there is a big stigma around them is due to the fact that people are uneducated on how fat loss actually works. To lose fat, you need to be in a caloric deficit. When you eat less calories than you burn ( caloric deficit), you lose bodyfat as your body needs to get energy from somewhere. When adding a fat burner to an already existing caloric deficit, you are actually going to lose more fat due to the thermogenic effects and appetite suppression that fat burners give you. What this means is that if you are in a caloric deficit, then you will benefit from this. The average joe thinks that taking a fat burner means you will lose fat while eating junk. The case is that you must already be on top of your diet game and then adding this will give you that extra edge to lose more fat. Don’t get me wrong, you can easily lose a lot of fat without taking a fat burner but if you are already eating in a caloric deficit, adding a fat burner will make you lose even more fat. If you are eating in a caloric surplus, then this will be very useful and unhelpful. This is why you may hear from people that the fat burner did not work but it actually was their diet that was off.
For example, if you are a busy person eating your regular diet of 3000 calories and your maintenance is 2500 calories, taking this fat burner wont help you lose fat. The way you lose fat is eating under the 2500 calories maintenance and then taking this product.
