My Twin Lab Mega Citrimax Fat Burner Review
I have had a shocker today.
Being hungover has meant that all I have eaten is junk food.
My head hasn’t been straight at all and concentration levels at an all time low.
I’ve had about 8 cups of coffee that I couldn’t taste and I feel really bloated and shitty.
However, it is all the chocolate, potato chips and soda that I have been throwing down my neck at a rate of knots that is the big problem, especially as I go on vacation soon.
I do need to hit the gym later and annoyingly I didn’t cycle in today because I could barely see let alone coordinate multiple limbs.
I am not particularly happy with myself and I should get an early night in bed this evening before I do anymore damage.
However, at nearing 34 years of age I am keen to ensure that just because I am lifting weight, that it will also ensure that I am beach body ready. It is not necessarily true.
It is fact that lifting weights burns calories, in fact it raises your metabolism for much longer than then you finish your cardio set of jogging for two hours along the sidewalk looking gaunt and upset with yourself.
I know which I would rather choose. However, I must admit, after eating all of that shit I did feel guilty and I know that I need all the help I can get.
However, I also know the lifestyle changes that creep in when you age.
This is not to say, I cannot gain more momentum and increase my performance any further…
This is exactly where an effective fat burner can help.
Fat burners can give you that edge whereby you burn the extra calories required which help toward creating that deficit which can lead to fat loss.
This one actually looks quite dated with the transparent brown bottle, it looks like something from the 1980’s that a physician would prescribe.
What can a fat burner really do?
You may well be surprised actually.
The idea that an effective fat burner just magically makes your waist smaller is far from the truth.
However, only the effective fat burners contain a number of ingredients in correct doses that work harmoniously and through a number of outcomes help you lose fat mass, not muscle.
Their benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Increase energy – This will help you be more active and stimulate you for effective workouts
- Thermogenic – These ingredients will increase the temperature of your core which increases calorie expenditure
- Appetite control – The ability to feel fuller and not to fall for sweet, calorie laden treats
As a result I tend to supplement my exercise regime with a fat burner supplement.
I have found Instant Knockout to offer the best results and as a result I try to use that daily.
Ingredients: The Science
This mineral helps your body use fats and carbohydrates more effectively for energy production.
It also helps move glucose from the bloodstream and in to the cells for energy.
Supposedly helps people lose weight, however, trials have been unsubstantiated or at least unimpressive.
Any tests run where there has been a glimmer of hope have been in stage 1 obese people.
Two pills to be taken daily. This is to be split in to two doses of just the one pill.
We prefer at least 4 pills spread out across the course of the day to ensure our body has a constant supply of ingredients to process rather than peaks and troughs.
If you get too much of certain ingredients, that what the body doesn’t need at the time will be wasted and you will not feel the benefit.
Therefore, if you have a massive dose of Magnesium for instance yet your body is still processing and utilizing Magnesium from a meal you’ve recently had it will only use what is required.
What the body doesn’t require at the time will let it pass. Thus, a higher chance of waste and less benefits.
It is better to have a continued trickle effect.
This results in a daily dose of 1400.2mg which is below most effective competitors.
Well, it is cheap. Very cheap.
However, there is probably a reason behind this, but we can come on to that later.
Let’s have a good look at the ingredients and see whether this is a good buy or not.
Chromium is key for your body to use fats and carbs, again, this is for effective energy production.
It also helps transport glucose from the blood into cells for energy as well. This is found in the best rated fat burner supplement, Instant Knockout.
Garcinia is administered to us in great big dollops. 1400mg per day to be precise.
Now, this is a difficult ingredient to really confirm its effectiveness.
That is because there’s largely no evidence to say it promotes fat burn.
However, during some testing it seems it may have a slight positive impact on people who are clinically categorized as stage 1 obese.
Well Chromium is tried and tested with inconclusive results from the Garcinia, unless you are in the early stages of obesity, and you may see some benefit.
However, the biggest problem with this fat burner supplement from Twin Lab is that it is missing so many other ingredients which are proven to increase energy levels and have thermogenic properties that will help you burn more calories.
Take a look at these ingredients below which would have been useful to be included.
- Green coffee
- Vitamin C
- Green Tea
- Green coffee
It certainly does offer close to the fat burning performance we want and is available in other fat burning supplements such as Instant Knockout.
My Twin Lab Mega Citrimax Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
This is cheap.
But for good reason, too. It omits many proven ingredients and only contains one ingredient that is conclusive.
The second ingredient may help those who are stage 1 obese, but that is a slim demographic compared to all of the different people who would benefit from a fat burner supplement or make use of one.
So where does this leave us?
Well, essentially that means this supplement merely contains one ingredient to help fight the flab, not great when you consider the best fat burners usually contain over eight separate ingredients with a large body of evidence to prove their effectiveness.
Anything else worth adding to this review..?
Yes, there are some other products such as those in our top 3 fat burners are more attractive propositions.
