Afterburn Effect - Exercise Workouts and How to Lose / Burn Fat

I'm in a diet regimen today and discovered online about afterburn effect while searching for a better way to loose weight and gain some muscles after an effective raw food diet that made me lose 5 pounds in 19 days. Afterburn is "claimed to be" a revolutionary way to loose some excess fats in the body.

According to a video I just watched, this series of exercise regimen just needs to accomplish in just minutes a day plus all you need is get 7 out of the list to become your most favorite and will do everyday in the comfort of your own home. Just imagine a few minutes is all it takes according to the promise and there is also a guarantee?

To a certain Mike Chang, it is a series of exercises targeted at losing fat in the fat cells by triggering Leptin, T3 and T4 (if i'm not mistaken).

Is it really effective? I mean 1+1=2 so how come the promised results? Shying away some of the best personal trainers there are even in Hollywood?

How could this guy expect me to believe something that defies even simple math?

Less exercise will only mean little results and there is even no need for common sense here.

Anyway, what I did was to make a comprehensive research at what people have experienced and the opinion of other experts and non-experts with high value in common sense.

Review: How to do Exercises for Maximizing Afterburn Effect

Fact: Exercise takes effect immediately and how the body responds to it is still a mystery but there are certain definite measurements with which we can base the results whether we lost weight or not by simply making track of the weight.

According to a Google ad that says loose weight using some odd tips from a certain Mike Chang with his body dangling all over the ad clearly saying he did it with just a few exercise. I say it's full of *hit simply because that body is clearly contoured to what it looks like using not just some exercise. Although it doesn't say it is, I know and we all know and could easily comprehend with it. So what I did was to go visit the link.

Watched the bat-*hit video and listened carefully as the guy every now and then say he will soon reveal the routine exercises. Yeah he did! He did reveal it using just another lure to click and buy the regimen in a series of CDs. I know it but before I get led to the buying spree, I opted out. The promise was delivered... Just not the right one - free video on how to do the afterburn exercise and series of exercises are included on it. You will have to buy the CDs first to see it all... hahaha!

I took time to get the research and found out what other people have to say about losing body fat convincingly to gaining some body muscles in mass. Below are some comments and reviews about afterburn effect and it's all up to you to believe it or not.

Review of Afterburn Effect from Yahoo Answers User - Clickmaster

Yahoo Answers - A certain "clickmaster" said these quotes

"Exercise is a poor way to try to lose fat anyway as you can see if you read the following fitness facts.

• If you consume fewer calories than you burn, you have to lose fat eventually. There are no exceptions to this fact.

• A pound of fat will yield about 3500 calories (Kcal) of energy.

• An average person must run or walk about 5 miles (8 km) every day to burn one pound of fat per week BUT THEIR DIET MUST ALLOW IT.

• An average person must run or walk about 350 miles (563 km) to burn 10 pounds BUT THEIR DIET MUST ALLOW IT. If they walk 350 miles (13.4 marathons) at 3mph it will take them 117 hours or about three full 40 hour work weeks to burn 10 pounds of fat.

• If an average person consumes 500 calories per day less than they burn, they will lose about a pound a week with no extra time or physical effort required.

•Running does not burn any more fat than walking as long as the distance remains the same.

• It does not matter if a person runs or walks a given distance…they will burn the same number of calories. Calories are energy and energy expenditure is not time dependent. How fast a person runs has nothing to do with how many calories they burn. Only the distance determines the calories burned.

• It is not necessary to do "cardio" to burn fat. Cardio is aerobic exercise while maintaining a heart rate of 80% of max or more which is used to maintain cardio-vascular fitness. You can burn fat in your sleep.

• Most of the calories you consume will be spent just keeping your body temperature at 98.6F.

• It doesn’t matter how hard or how long you exercise, you will not lose any fat if you eat too much. You can always eat more calories than you can burn. When it comes to burning fat, diet always trumps exercise.

• There are no supplements which will make your body burn fat. Only you can do that with diet control.

• An average natural bodybuilder who is just starting to train may gain as much as 4-8 ounces of muscle in a month. An average dieter who is burning fat will lose about a pound a week. Anyone can gain a pound in a few minutes just be drinking a pint of water."

Here's What Wikipedia Had to Say About Afterburn Effect - EPOC (Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption)

You can find the review article here.

Afterbrun Effect Claims

There were claims widespread all over the internet that this system actually takes people to continually lose weight even after a series of calorie-burning easy exercise cheats. Yes, even after workout. I say I laughed at it out loud simply because we all know that during and eventually after every exercise we do, we tend to lose weight depending upon the metabolism of our body. The more sweat, the more weight loss. Take for example boxers, how do these guys lose weight when they become overweight during a weigh-in before a fight? Get it?

We don't have to do a research on this at all. It's all about common sense - Lose liquid and lose weight and we don't even need to understand what afterburn effect is all about. Fact is, we lose by sweating and we lose wight hoping some toxin goes with the sweat including the fats stored in fat cells inside our body. So what's there to explain?

One thing for sure, diet, exercise, body condition and metabolism will absolutely play the biggest role in losing weight. We can't just expect to have 6-pack abs by doing simple series of exercises stated in the afterburn effect regimen. We have to work out and yes, sometimes it had to be hard ones.

For a tip, do a raw food diet and you'll definitely be amazed at what changes will occur to both the mind, body and soul. I did it for 19 days and I lost 5 pounds on a gradual slow but sure basis. It's proven and I don't even need to put here any explanation. Why do I need to anyway? Is eating healthy fresh raw salad bad for health? If not, then what's wrong with going through with it? We all know too much exercise can lead to burnout body and exhaustion so, we do it moderately, on timing and on a managed duration or time frame. Good luck to all in their afterburn effect workout!
