A couple of years ago I wrote about the Ultimate Fat Loss Stack. This stack contained ingredients to help you burn body fat and my fat cutter recommendations. In this article, I wrote about buying single ingredient fat cutter supplements. When you buy single ingredient fat cutter supplements you can be sure of two things
- that you are getting branded ingredients. It is very important to buy branded ingredients when it comes to dietary supplements. If the ingredients are not branded, especially fat cutter ingredients, you may and most likely will be getting synthetic garbage from China.
- When you buy single ingredients you don’t have to worry about getting short-changed on the dose. Most of the time supplement companies will dump in a thousand ingredients into their fat cutter supplement to make it seem better. More is better right? Well in the case of dietary supplements, more is worse. You want to use ONLY one ingredient in a capsule product to make sure you are dosing it correctly.
As you can see, it is very important to buy single ingredients when it comes to supplements. If you do not buy single ingredients, then you’ll never really know what works and what does not. Most people that use fat cutter supplements simply look at the front of the label are persuaded by Instagram influencers, and never do any actual research on if the ingredients in the fat cutter they just bought will help them lose fat.
I have updated my Ultimate Fat Burning Stack, call it the Ultimate Fat Burning Stack 2.0.
The first change is to Capsimax. Capsimax is pretty much the only product in the dietary supplement industry to increase heat in the body. When this occurs you will burn more calories than you normally would. You can use Capsimax pre-workout. This product that I recommend is 100% Capsimax. It is the only 100% Capsimax product that I have found. I did find some fat cutter supplements that contain Capsimax but most are combined with other supposed fat burning supplements. Remember you do not want this, you want single ingredients.
The second change is to the Advantra Z product. The company that used to sell Advantra Z, called Nutratech seems like they might have sold the ingredient. Their website is gone. A company called Novel Ingredients seems to be selling the ingredient but since has updated the name and improved the formula. The new name is called Kinetiq and here is their new website. They have a new formula that combines a couple of ingredients from the citrus aurantium fruit.
On their website they claim the following:
Standardized citrus aurantium extract PLUS bioflavonoids narigin and hesperidin, which are naturally occurring in the citrus aurantium fruit. This combination was shown in a recently published study to help boost resting metabolic rate significantly.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find this ingredient sold as a single dose yet. In the mean time here is the product that I recommend.

Finally, I’m always on the lookout for new ingredients and new supplements. The fat loss and weight management category is by far more promising that a muscle building category. But for some reason, not one single ingredient manufacturer can come up with a decent fat cutter. When I look on Bodybuilding.com it is the same old ingredients, over and over again, just packaged differently by supplement company after supplement company claiming their fat cutter is the best and most effective.
Here is what supposedly is the best selling fat burning supplement on Bodybuilding.com
First and foremost, it is a bunch of ingredients tossed into one supplement. Bad! Remember you only want to buy one ingredient supplements. But anyhow let’s take a look at the ingredients they decided to use.
- CLA. This product has been around since the 1990’s. In my opinion, it is one of the weakest fat loss supplements you can buy. Personally, I don’t even think its a weight loss supplement. In addition, if you were trying to use this as a fat loss supplement, you need at least 1.5 grams, three times a day. Therefore you would have to take this product 5 times a day for a total of 25 grams. Which would then this supplement would only last you 6 days. This is a classic example of an ingredient in a supplement that is under dosed, despite the fact that I do even think it should be in there in the first place.
- The next three ingredients are simple ingredients that have been around for almost 20 years or even more. It is amazing that consumers wanting to use a supplement to help them lose fat STILL have to use ingredients that are that old. Again this is a classic example of a fat cutter supplement that is just repackaged and sold as being the latest and greatest.
You’ll notice that most of the fat cutter supplements on sale today use the same ingredients.
- raspberry ketones
- guarana extract
- green tea
- and of course caffeine
Thus not only are you getting all the same ingredients, but you can surely expect the same results, DISAPPOINTING.
That is why I recommend buying single ingredients. You try one, if you think it works, good it works. However if it does not work you know that you did not like and you can move onto the next ingredient that is supposed to help our with weight loss or fat burning.
