Heat Production And Fat Loss - Thermogenesis


In the world of weight loss, there is an obvious link between fat loss and heat production. More often than not, you find advertisements that encourage subjecting your body to heat to get rid of your fat. This popular process of getting rid of fat is commonly known as Thermogenesis.

How Does It Work?

Whenever you fry bacon, or simply heat it in the microwave, you instantly see oil coming out of the food. When subjected to heat, the fat in the bacon come out in the form of oil. This analogy is a good illustration of how Thermogenesis works.

It is the process in which your body generates energy or heat, by increasing your metabolic rate to above normal levels. Once you obtain the rise in your metabolic rate, this is what you call the thermogenic effect. Some schools of thought refer to it as the Specific Dynamic Action (SDA) or thermogenic response.

How Can You Get Thermogenesis?

You are able to attain Thermogenesis via a number of methods, some of which include: supplements, exercise, nutrition, and cold exposure.

Nutrients And Their Thermogenic Effect

Among the nutritional sources of thermogenesis, the different macronutrients have different effects in regard to the thermogenic response. Whenever you consume food, you experience an increase in your metabolic rate. In fact, it goes way above your fasting level.

As for protein, it is processed to be used as energy, which is in turn used for repair and growth of tissues. Conversely, carbohydrates and fat primarily function as fuel and are used more efficiently by the body. Hence, fat and carbohydrates have lesser thermogenic effect compared to protein.

Heat Creating Supplements

Supplements that have thermogenic functions usually have key ingredients such as: ephedra, salicin and caffeine. They boost your metabolic rate, which makes the body burn more calories at a faster rate. They also help curb your appetite. This can also be achieved with some Herbal Teas that are founded on a green tea base.

These agents are intended to counter your body's mechanisms for fat storage by preserving a high metabolic rate. In consequence, it turns your internal thermostat.

With thousands of supplements that fall into this category in the market, it can be very confusing. Most thermogensis products, similar ingredients but may differ with one or two special contents.

Keep in mind that getting the best thermogenesis products would mean achieving all its effects minus the side effects, which include: heart palpitations, jitteriness, or nervousness.

On Dosage And Caution

This doesn't mean the higher the dosage of your heat creating supplement the faster the weight loss results. What happens is you get the same effects, yet the side effects are simply increased.

There are precautionary actions that you should keep in mind, if ever you use thermogenic supplements. First off, you don't want to get dehydrated. You should drink plenty of water. Don't skip meals because you'll have low blood sugar when using this kind of program. Don't take these supplements at night. Keep in mind that they have caffeine content, which can lead to being awake all night long.

Popular Heat Makers

One popular heat creator for the body is green tea. Drinking this kind of tea through the day can actually aid you in burning extra 70-100 calories in a day via thermogenesis. Studies show that EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is a chemical in this kind of tea, is responsible for its fat burning properties.

Additionally, some studies show cayenne peppers have chemical compounds that are able to increase the body's thermogenesis. Just like green tea, it is able to heighten your metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Some research shows that it can decrease your appetite, which is similar to what thermogenic supplements do.
