Well I would guess that NO it doesnt boost BMR that much and I dont think thats what Tim was saying. Also I feel that it is possible that the product could allow 5 lbs a week of fat loss. If you take the whole picture and bonuses the product allows the dieter.
How?? Well you have to remember the muscle presevation factor of the Max Strength HOT-ROX and now even more so the HOT-ROX Extreme.
So while its usually recomended to those wanting to shed fat to cut intake and up activity enough top lose 1-2 lbs a week well say two which would be approx 3500-7000 k/cals a week deficite from combined diet and activity and NO HOT-ROX Extreme.
Add to that equation the HOT-ROX Extreme the boost in BMR that comes from it and the other fators from the ingredients at freeing apidose cells muscle presevation etc. Just the boost lets say that adds one more LB a week 3500 k/cals. Then due to the muscle presevation property we are able to Lower intake more than without and/or up activity safely. there were burning more fat.
Yet abother thing is he said FAT lost not weight lost. It could also be you are getting Body comp changes for the positive. adding muscle burning fat.
So Id say its possibe do to the multi facted bonuses from the product. Have to look at the big picture. The boost in BMR from the product itself. The ability to safley increase activity or lower intake and preserve or hopefully gain LBM, etc. etc…
I would also add if unlike DNP which make you weaker (see Anthony’s article) I know Max Strength HOT-ROX (havent tried the HOT-ROX Extreme version yet) I was able to gain strength, making w/o’s better have greater pay back etc.
That help. Just my take,
Thank you for the reply. However, I think this is faulty reasoning. The product says “Burn 5 times as much fat than with diet and exercise alone”. Ok, so both you and Tim say .5-2 lbs a week on a normally suggested diet. That is the diet and exercise part. So taking from the middle of losing 1lb a week with diet and exercise, HOT-ROX will give you 5lbs of fat loss (I’ve never said weight loss) a week, as was mentioned by Tim.
Mentioning the Muscle preservation qualities of HOT-ROX is irrelevant for two reasons. One, muscle does not burn that much more than calories than fat, and two, we have no idea if it does so or not. Perhaps the study that they performed shows this.
