What You Should Know
Bally Total Fitness Fat Burning supplement contains only a few ingredients. There is no ephedra in the supplement, as listed in the product description. This could mean the formula used to contain ephedra. Ephedra is still available in the United States, but it is not available for use as a dietary supplement. There is no official website for Bally Total Fitness supplements, but they are listed on Amazon.com for sale. Amazon lists the ingredients, but little additional information.
List of Ingredients
Chromium, Carnitine, Guarana, Green Tea, Bitter Orange.
Chromium is the first ingredient in Bally Total Fitness Fat Burning supplement. This is not a fat burning ingredient, but it is important to dieters. Chromium helps to regulate hunger by controlling blood glucose. If blood glucose drops too low, the brain signals hunger even if the dieter does not need any additional calories. This could cause overeating and weight gain.
Guarana is a stimulant, but not a proven stimulant like caffeine. Guarana increases heart rate and blood pressure. The dieter will feel more awake, but this effect has nothing to do with metabolism. Bitter orange, also known as synephrine, increases the effect of guarana on heart rate, because it is also a stimulant. Synephrine is a cousin to ephedra, without the proven weight loss benefits.
Green tea is a proven ingredient tested for a long list of health benefits, including weight loss. Dieters taking green tea gain the benefits of EGCG and caffeine. EGCG is a natural metabolism booster that does not require stimulation to work.

Bally Total Fitness is a gym, not a supplement company. The ingredient list is rather light, compared to other fat burners, but there are two proven ingredients. Chromium helps the dieter gain control over hunger and green tea helps the dieter lose weight by boosting metabolism. There is no price listed for the supplement, which could mean it is no longer for sale.
We like the green tea and chromium, but the synephrine and guarana are nothing more than heart racing stimulants. The dieter should ask a physician before taking this supplement if there are any health concerns or illnesses.
