JILLIAN’S TIP OF THE DAY
If you’re interested in caffeine for its fat-burning benefits, try it in the form of a guarana
pill or drink. Guarana is a tropical plant native to the Amazon jungle
. It contains caffeine, but instead of producing a sudden energy surge and quick drop-off, guarana is absorbed slowly and therefore produces a more moderate energy boost that escalates gradually. Try 5 mg of guarana per pound of body weight
, and take it about 40 minutes before your workout.
