Decoding Weight Loss and Fat Burning

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

Almost everyone we know is looking at losing weight and is trying all sorts of diets to Burn Fat and get in shape. Let us explain 2 terms that are often associated with fat loss or weight loss and fat burners.


Thermogenesis is a metabolic process during which your body burns calories to produce heat. Several factors induce thermogenesis in your body including exercise, diet and environmental temperature. Thermogenesis can promote weight loss because it increases your body’s calorie burn. Although inducing thermogenesis can help you burn more calories, a low-calorie diet and regular physical activity are the best ways for you to lose body weight


Lipolysis is the breakdown of lipids and involves hydrolysis of triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids. The following hormones induce lipolysis: glucagon, epinephrine, norepinephrine, ghrelin, growth hormone, testosterone, and cortisol.

During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. Lipolysis can be defined as the process in the body of breaking down stored triglycerides (or triglycerides in the blood for food we’ve just eaten), into two main components, glycerol and fatty acids

Think of fat burner supplements as the final 10% of your artillery used in the fight against fat.

Let’s say that Diet is 70% to 80%, Exercise is 10% to 20% and fat burners are that final 10%, the final weapon being brought into the play to support all of your persistence and hard work to maximize the amount of fat loss that your body achieves throughout the fat loss period of your training.

Caffeine and Fat loss

Research shows that caffeine Improves strength, Improves muscle endurance and anaerobic performance and last but not least, accelerates fat loss

Caffeine accomplishes this last feat by increasing the amount of catecholamine’s in your blood, which are chemicals that mobilize fat stores to be oxidized. This, in turn, raises your body’s basal metabolic rate, which is the amount of energy it burns at rest.

The more energy your body burns every day, the more bodyfat you can lose, and that’s why caffeine is an effective fat burner.

L-Carnitine and Fat loss

Carnitine plays a key role on the mobilization of body fat for fuel in the body. It is for this reason that it has become popular as a dietary supplement. The theory is, the more L-carnitine you can ingest, the more fat your body will burn because the L-Carnitine transports the fatty acids to the mitochondria where the faty acids are oxidised for fuel, thus the bodily levels of L Carnitine are a rate determining step in this process.

Along with boosting metabolism, Biotin can also aid in weight loss. Essentially, consuming or ingesting biotin elevates your resting rate of metabolism. As this vitamin increases your metabolism, it can help accelerate weight loss.

Thiamine, also known as Thiamin or Vitamin B1, is one the of B vitamins. Thiamine helps to turn food into energy to keep the nervous system healthy. It helps the body cells convert carbohydrates into energy, which helps in optimising weight loss.
