Top 5 Best Fat Burner Supplements of 2014

Have you ever wondered how fat burner supplements can help you ‘really’ lose weight? And what is the best fat burner? 

Best Fat Burner

Fat burners have commonly been marketed as a “magic pill” which will help you shed pounds of fat while you’re sitting on your couch eating potato chips. I assure you this is NOT the case. Don’t get me wrong, fat burners WILL help you shed excess weight fast, but only if you work hard in the gym and have sound eating habits to go with it.

It’s difficult to stay strict on your diet when you’re working out – the more you work-out the more hungry you feel, and then you find yourself in a McDonald’s eating a double cheeseburger. However, if you want to reap the benefits from your fat burner supplement it’s a necessity to stay strict and focused. Remember, when your body depletes its’ glycogen stores it will look to burn fat for fuel so don’t pour in excess carbs with junk food.

How Do Fat Burners Work?

Fat burners will help suppress your appetite with ingredients such as bitter orange extract while simultaneously keeping you energized while on calorie restricted diets with stimulants like caffeine. With their complex blend of ingredients, fat burning supplements  can help you burn more calories during exercise by increasing your body temperature. When your body temperature is increased this stimulates your metabolism resulting in the fat stores being called upon for energy. This process is referred to as thermogenesis.

3 Fat Burner Ingredients Worth Looking At:

L-Carnitine – An amino acid which is responsible for shifting fatty acids into the mitochondria (our energy power house) and use it for energy. Effective doses are around 2000mg pre-workout.

Green Tea – A natural fat burner packed full of antioxidants which boosts your metabolism. Drink this instead of your daily coffee/tea’s. Many good fat burners come with green tea extract so be sure to read the label before you buy.

Phosphatidylserine – Responsible for controlling cortisol. Cortisol is the stress hormone and when elevated it can cause more fat storage. Those who weight train are susceptible to an increase in cortisol therefore supplementing with phosphatidylserine is beneficial as it will block the secretion of cortisol allowing you to recover quickly and burn more fat. Recommended dosages are between 500-800mg post workout.

Thermakor Review:

Although a relatively new company, their first product Thermakor is a powerful start. Reviews of the product online are very supportive and many users have reported positive results.

We particularly like the ingredient profile and believe it poised for noticeable fat-burning results. Ingredients are what make the difference in weight loss products, and is why we prefer Thermakor. Some of the ingredient highlights of Thermakor are: Green and White Tea Extract, Yohimbe, Inula Racemosa Root, and Quebracho Blanco Plant.

We recommend taking 1 capsule after big meals for enhanced metabolism and insulin regulation, or before a workout for increased workout intensity.

2. BSN Hyper Shred – 9/10

Pros -
BSN Hyper Shred fat burner

  • Increased Energy
  • Good Thermogenic Effect
  • No Crash
  • Effective

Cons -

  • Proprietary Blend

Hyper Shred Review:

Hyper Shred is our 2nd favorite fat burner. It keeps you motivated throughout the day and increased that “feel-good” factor. This is essential when approaching any diet or competition. It’s easy to sway off your diet with a cheat meal here or there but when you have the mind-set of someone who is focused and wanting to yield results, that’s what causes results.

For those who have tried caloric restricted diets, you know that this can impact harshly on your energy levels, but when supplementing with Hyper Shred you’re energized enough to battle through an intense workout as well as your daily routine.

Pros -

  • Increased Focus
  • Increased Energy

Cons -

  • Too Expensive
  • Doesn’t Supress Appetite Enough

Stim-Elite Review:

As mentioned earlier, the most effective fat trimmers provide a quick release of energy, thermogenesis and appetite suppression, Stim-Elite packs all these with a punch. As opposed to a traditional pill, Stim-Elite is in a powdered form making it easier to digest and also provides a great taste. The key ingredient in this being L-Carnitine which helps the body use fat for fuel.

Cellucor Super HD fat burning supplementPros -

  • Increased Energy

  • Mental Clarity
  • Diuretic

Cons -

  • Expensive
  • Takes a while to kick in

Super HD review:

Super HD is described as the “high-def” fat targeting agent and with its’ increased popularity among users it has been promoted to our top 5. Super HD includes Yohimbe extract which helps promote dopamine, decrease serotonin and helps prevent the breakdown of norepinephrine. Yohimbe is also responsible for the “fight or flight” responses similar to ErgoShred.

Dandelion extract is another key ingredient as it is a natural diuretic meaning it helps excess water leave the body through urine allowing you to look leaner and more vascular; great for pre-contest.

  1. randy says

    Hi taylor I just changed my diet up I’m eating less calories and more protein. I want to lose fat but maintain / build muscle (lean mass) is a thermogenic a good supp and do you have any exercise routines or circuits to help. Plus I have boxing bag double end bag if that help plus power blocks and Smith machine.

    • Taylor Scott says

      Hey Randy, it’s not so much about eating less calories… it’s more about what kind of calories you’re eating. You want to minimize carb-intake and incorporate more fresh greens into your diet.

      As for a thermogenic supplement, Thermakor would be a perfect fit to lose fat, but maintain/build muscle (as long as you’re strength training). For a workout I would start off with 20 minutes of cardio on the elliptical, etc. And then do a strength training routine for around 30 minutes give or take, depending on how much you want to achieve. For some great workout routines, checkout the mens workout routines here.

  2. Adrian says

    Hi taylor! Need a little help, I work out 6 days a week lifting free weights doing push ups and pull ups and tons of different ab workouts, i’m not really focused on size but I really want a 6 pack showing. I was wondering if a testosterone booster is needed if i’m 18 or would it harm my hormones? Also is there any stores that hold thermakor? Or should I go with bsn? Any feedback or ab tips would be greatly appreciated :)

    • Taylor Scott says

      Adrian, good to hear you’re working out 6 days/ week, nice determination! Checkout the workouts category for other great workouts to change things up. I promise more will be added soon :)

      For your 6 pack, Thermakor will definitely help achieve it. Right now, you can only buy it directly from As far a a test booster, it would definitely be a great option as well. Go with a natural test booster. Natural meaning it has all-natural ingredients which is perfectly healthy to take and won’t mess with your hormones.

  3. James says

    Hey, I want to get rid of some fat that I have and have more definition. I lift usually 3-4 days a week and do cardio 2 times on top of that. Looking into a lot of supplements and a lot of scams or no results… Any ideas?

    • Taylor Scott says

      Hey James, have you hit a plateau in your workout routine? Checkout some of the workouts in the ‘workouts’ category.

      As for the supplements, you are right. Many supplements do not work as intended. This is why rates the absolute best supplements per each category, filtering out the crap products that are all marketing, but don’t produce results. For your situation, try a fat burner product like Thermakor to burn fat, tone and give you great energy. If not a fat burner, then go with a natural testosterone booster. With increased testosterone levels, you’ll see belly fat loss and will tone/ build muscle much more easily, along with a number of other great benefits.

        • Taylor Scott says

          Yes you can definitely take a test booster along with a fat burner. This will accelerate your results. Just make sure you stay dedicated and set out a specific weight loss/ muscle building goal for yourself and stick with it everyday. Both supplements will help you achieve your goals much faster than without them and keep you motivated.

  4. victoria says

    Hi Taylor, I recently just had baby number 4. I’m 37, and I really need to get rid of this excess weight. I’m 30 pounds over weight, and before this pregnancy I was an avid runner. Do you have any suggestions for a fat burner that will help me get rid of belly/excess fat?!. Thank you.

    Also, as far as my workout now. It consists of the treadmill for 30 min 3 days a week. And the elliptical for 25 min 2 days a week.

    • Taylor Scott says

      Hey Victoria, congrats on baby number 4! As far as a fat burner, any of the top 5 above are excellent choices. However, the best fat burner currently is Thermakor. This will help to shred belly/ excess fat and give you more energy to get back into your running/ workout routine.

      Your workout is definitely a good start and a good cardio routine. When you regain some of your energy back, you should try to incorporate weight lifting along with your cardio to tone. Checkout these workout routines here: Note that these workouts are from pro’s, so I guess you can say they are expert level. I would briefly overlook the workouts and just start incorporating a couple exercises for each day (on top of your cardio).

      Hope this helps!

    • Taylor Scott says

      Hey Mahdi, what kind of products have you been trying? In your case, I would definitely go with either a fat burner supplement like Thermakor or go with a testosterone booster. It really depends what your goals are. Do you want to just lose belly fat and tone?.. then go with a fat burner. Do you want to lose belly fat as well as build muscle in the process?.. then go with a natural testosterone booster here.

      Also, what kind of workout routine do you currently have? Checkout these full workout splits to follow.

      • Mahdi Albaz says

        I used XCESS, Hyper Shred and Lipo! I lost a little bit but it wasn’t that good results that i had! I want to lose belly fat as well as building muscle in the process but the most important thing is to lose the belly fat! I checked out the testosterone booster Link ! Which one you advise me to use ?
        I checked out the workout routine link and it’s awesome thank you so much it will help me a lot.

        • Taylor Scott says

          Definitely checkout Testofuel for a testosterone booster. It will help you lose belly fat while building muscle along with receiving a ton of other excellent benefits. Checkout the top 5 testosterone booster review to see the benefits.

          Glad the workout routines helped! More will be added very soon :)

    • Taylor Scott says

      Hi Joe, yes you can stack a fat burner with a testosterone booster. Note that a test booster alone will help you lose belly fat, but taking it with a fat burner supplement will enhance the fat burning capabilities all around.

      It really depends on what your goal is… if your want to just lose weight then go with a fat burner. If you want to lose weight and build muscle/ strength then go with either the test booster or both to enhance results.

  6. James says

    I’ve been looking for a good fat burner for a long time. Im gonna give thermakor a try and see how it works. Just hoping to drop a few body fat percentages.

  7. Melanie says

    I tried the cellucor HD and all I saw was a little burst of energy, nothing else. I heard great things for Thermakor and tried it out. This is a super fat burner! Just what I needed, it gives me energy all day, my waistline dwindled down and I’m toning up nicely only 2 weeks in! Plus it feels natural taking it, not like the other fat burners that make u feel jittery. GLad I bought the discounted 3 month supply!

    • Taylor Scott says

      Hey Melanie, glad to see Thermakor is working for you! Their ingredient list is powerful for fat burning. I hope you reach your fitness goals soon!
