Calories In Fats, Oils, Salad Dressings
Fat Burners, Healthy Option or Not?

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Fats, Oils and Salad Dressings are one of the most crucial areas of your diet.  

Most are nothing more than globs of tasty fat.  

The good thing is that most people don't dump a cup of butter on their veggies or bread because a little goes a long way.  But it's that 'little' that costs you so many hefty calories in your diet.  

When possible, opt for the non-stick cooking sprays for cooking purposes.  Most are available in all sorts of flavors - from butter to herb.  

Rather than dot your potato with real butter or margarine, try using the no calories refrigerated butter sprays and use them generously.  

Some people actually prefer the taste of the no calorie sprays more than they do the 'real' thing.

Fat Burners for Weight Loss

Questions & Answers regarding weight loss, calories and burning fat.

Rapid weight loss that is attempted by using over the counter fat burners may pose serious health risks, more for some individuals than others.

They tend to work by speeding up the heart rate. The dieter may feel sick at their stomach, dizzy, they may tremble or faint due to increased blood pressure levels as a response to the fat burners.

How to burn fat while dieting.

- Fat is such a stubborn little donkey. Many times, it tests the dieter to a breaking  point.

Weight Loss Success may translate into 'who' can hold out longer - Fat or the Dieter. Although fat is stubborn to get rid of, it certainly can be done! 

Here are some good diet tips that help burn fat. The amazing thing is that they are all simple:

- Get in your full night's rest! Studies indicate that individuals who get their forty winks get better weight loss results.

- Don't starve while dieting because this slows down the metabolism.

- Eat breakfast and get a leg up on your diet. Eating breakfast jump starts your metabolism.

- Studies indicate that three cups of milk per day increases weight loss. We recommended skim for your ounce-an-hour.

- Choose activities that you enjoy to burn calories. If you know that you won't do the treadmill because it's just too boring and unfun, then head out shopping.  

In Summary

Never use an over the counter or a miracle drug or remedy without your doctor's approval. Sometimes the damages to health are not reversible and the risks include death.
