Raspberry ketone-based fat burners are the current supplement “du jour” for weight loss, being touted as a miracle fat burner by numerous celebrities, including the ever-popular Dr. Mehmet Oz. After it was featured on the doctor’s show, it was as if the world went crazy and raspberry ketone supplements flew of the shelves. Some retailers being forced to put up signs stating the product in question sold out quickly to avoid problems with disgruntled consumers who hadn’t been successful in purchasing the product.
Of course, savvy supplement manufacturers jumped on the train of opportunity and, now, almost every supplement company and their pet dog offers some form of fat-burner based on raspberry ketone. And people keep on buying it in the hopes that it is the miracle Dr. Oz and others have claimed it to be.
It’s important to get one thing straight from the get-go. There is no such thing as a miracle weight-loss solution, whether it’s a pill, a tea, or some strange ritual involving the full moon and plant sacrifices, that will work without a healthy eating regimen and exercise. If there were, there wouldn’t be so many overweight people in the world and it would be selling for a fortune.
Does that mean raspberry ketone doesn’t work as a weight loss supplement? Not at all. It simply means that if you expect to pop a few raspberry ketone pills and watch 25lbs melt away in a week while you sit on the couch watching your favorite TV show and eat pizza and chips with a chocolate and cookie chaser, then you are going to be very disappointed.
What Is Raspberry Ketones Good For?
Raspberry ketone supplements can provide excellent support to your weight loss endeavors but it isn’t a miracle fat burner. But you probably already knew that. Yes, it’s easy to allow ourselves to believe the hype for a moment because we’re all looking for the easy way out. The truth is that there is no easy way out. We have to put in some effort but, in a way, it’s a good thing, because then we appreciate the results much more.
