stomach and ensure that it’s passed through your digestive tract instead of being absorbed. This means that many of the calories you would have previously taken onboard as a result of digesting this fat are no longer an issue. Fat binders may not be the most effective way of shredding a few pounds, but they can make a difference. And when you’re attempting to lose weight, every little shove in the right direction could be the deciding factor between hitting your goal weight or simply failing to.
Fat is a fairly efficient form of energy. As a result, metabolising it for energy can bring onboard additional calories that you didn’t need. Whilst it’s important to still get a healthy dose of fat in your diet as it’s a vital macronutrient, you aren’t necessarily going to need every little bit of fat you consume.
Fat binders are also particularly useful for anyone who has to go on a low fat diet for medical reasons. Although they are not currently prescribed on the NHS for these purposes - so official recommendations can’t really be made. But it stands to reason that anyone who would benefit from having less fat in their diet could potentially benefit from the use of this style of supplement.
Using this in conjunction with an active lifestyle and a calorie restricted diet will allow you to see results much faster than you’d initially predict. Just make sure you’re actually operating on a deficit - fat binders won’t work if you’re taking in the majority of your calories through carbohydrates anyway. They also won’t work if you physically manage to eat enough calories to cancel out the benefit they provide.
