Burn Fat Not Sugar!

Written by Michelle Wollaston

You are going to be pleasantly surprised! Most people think that in order to lose weight you have to do strenuous exercise, continuously, and lots of it! Well, Guess what? NOT TRUE!

I know you are thinking? That's crazy! It doesn't make any sense! I thoughtrepparttar same thing, when I first heard this. But it all comes down to understanding how your body works.

By exercising 20 minutes a day average, you can reduce your craving forrepparttar 131183 wrong kinds of foods that result from your life stresses. SO let's explore that concept of howrepparttar 131184 body really works! Your body has two ways to create energy. Your body can turn fat into energy, or it can turn blood sugar, glucose, into energy. But it can't do both atrepparttar 131185 same time. At any time, your body is either burning fat, or blood sugar. When your energy demand is low, your body burns fat. When you are walking, working at your desk, driving a car, and even sleeping -repparttar 131186 demand for energy is low sorepparttar 131187 body is burning fat. But as soon as your activity levels increase - your body turns to blood sugar since fat cannot be converted into energy quickly enough.

Let's take an example. You are walking downrepparttar 131188 street torepparttar 131189 bus stop (burning fat), and you see your bus start to closerepparttar 131190 doors and ready to leave. You start running - and very quickly your heart rate and your breathing will increase, and your body will begin to burn blood sugar instead of fat. Constant strenuous exercise conditions your body to burn blood sugar, instead of fat. Wow! That is an eye-opener, isn't it?

These types of strenuous exercises are great forrepparttar 131191 heart, lungs, and circulation, and you may want to do these AFTER you loserepparttar 131192 weight. Until then, try anaerobic exercise that doesn't increase your heart rate. Try long, slow walks, because they are burning fat while you walk - but as an added bonus, you are conditioning your body to burn fat, opening up fat burning systems, burning calories, and building muscle

Buyer Beware! Purchasing Fat Burners and Other Supplements Online

Written by Paul Crane

Each month I receive hundreds of e-mails from consumers who have been bilked out of their hard earned dollars by unscrupulous supplement / fat burner manufacturers. Manufacturers who have added them to monthly recurring billing cycles without their permission. Manufacturers who don't honor their money-back guarantees, and, while providing a 1-800 number for refunds, but don't hire a real, breathing person to monitor this number. These manufacturers treat their customers with disdain, and in general, regard them as little more than sheep who need to be parted from their money.

The vast number of complaints I receive involve products marketed almost extensively via...

i) radio advertisements

ii) internet e-mail and advertising campaigns

iii) television infomercials

These products tend to be marketed by companies who do not have a regular presence inrepparttar marketplace. These companies like to make this sound like a good thing (i.e., "exclusive T.V. offer!", and "this product is not available in any stores, so order now!"). However,repparttar 131181 opposite is generallyrepparttar 131182 case. Why? Selling viarepparttar 131183 'Net, T.V. or radio makes it very easy forrepparttar 131184 manufacturer to...

a) avoid accountability torepparttar 131185 customer

b) continue to sell an inferior product to a receptive audience

To further outlinerepparttar 131186 issues, let's create an example scenario with fictitious companies "X" (which will sell its products in stores), and company "Y" (which sells online).

Suppose company "X" creates a new fat burner product with a full money back guarantee. They sell it in local marketplaces through well-known retailers. Suppose you come in torepparttar 131187 retailer and purchase that new fat burner. Four weeks later, in accordance withrepparttar 131188 label guarantee, you bringrepparttar 131189 empty bottle for a refund, feelingrepparttar 131190 product didn't live up to your expectations.

A quality, customer focused retailer will refund your money right away, no questions asked (if they don't, make it clear you'll be taking your business elsewhere). That retailer will then demand their own refund from manufacturer.

What's my point here?...

1) Inferior quality products threatenrepparttar 131191 local merchant's credibility, and their ability to do business withrepparttar 131192 local audience. After all, no merchant who claims to have your best interests at heart while flogging an inferior product can stay in business for long.

2) It is impossible for any manufacturer to avoid accountability inrepparttar 131193 local retail market. If a product yields too many refunds,repparttar 131194 local merchant will have to stop selling it. That's because that merchant needs your repeat business for his/her other products. Ifrepparttar 131195 merchant does not treat you well, s/he losesrepparttar 131196 risk of losing ALL your business. Regardless,repparttar 131197 bottom line is thatrepparttar 131198 local retailer has to stop ordering fromrepparttar 131199 manufacturer.

3) Products that generate lots of refund requests are much more work forrepparttar 131200 retailer than ones that do not. Merchants will not carry such a product for long.

OK, now forrepparttar 131201 other side ofrepparttar 131202 coin.

Suppose company "Y" creates a new fat burner (covered by a 100% money-back guarantee) and markets it via infomercials, radio ads, andrepparttar 131203 Internet. Suppose "you" purchaserepparttar 131204 product, and later try to get a refund when you findrepparttar 131205 quality ofrepparttar 131206 product unsatisfactory. Here's where things get interesting...

Unlike your local merchant, who needs to keep you happy to earn your repeat business, company "Y" knows it is unlikely to ever hear from you again. So it makes it as difficult as possible to obtain a refund. Its 1-800# plays an endless loop message for 45 minutes. It's nearly impossible to get a real human being to talk to.
