Why are fat burners in my protein?


To fat burning protein powder or not to fat burning protein powder? That is the question. Choosing a fat burning protein powder over a regular protein powder has some obvious benefits. However there are advantages and disadvantages to having a 2 in 1 fat burning protein powder. Let’s take a look at exactly what’s in fat burning protein powders, what it does and why you might prefer it over your typical protein powders.
Weighing It Up

  • Facilitates increased fat burning
  • Contains ingredients to support fat burning not typically found in pure fat burning products
  • Simplifies your supplementation
  • Cannot separate fat burning and protein dosage times
  • Typically lower strength fat burning than a pure fat burning product
  • Can be more expensive than regular protein

As far as the advantages and disadvantages go most people stop at advantage number one, “facilitates increased fat burning”. Beyond that the disadvantages are relatively small negatives especially considering that you can of course stack a pure fat burning product with your fat burning protein powder.
