The Top Five Fat Burners of 2018

With the huge turnover in supplements coming in and out of the market, it’s not long before a top supplement list is obsolete, thanks largely to TGA bans (such as DMAA) and moving trends in the supplement market. So, to keep things nice and fresh, we’ll update our top five lists for 2018, starting with Fat Burners!

For the Top Five Fat Burners of 2018 list, we classify our top five using a variety of criteria, including: taste, value for money, effective dosing and ingredients. We’ve also only included powdered fat-burners on this list – mainly because of the dosing element (it’s hard to give great doses in small capsules!). Of course, it’s no good having a candy-tasting fat burner that does nothing, or a mega-stim-taste-like-dirt fat burner that costs the world. So, with our best judgement, and without any further ado, here are our Top Five Fat Burners of 2018.

5) BPM Labs Annihilate
BPM Labs Annihilate - Protein King

Taste: 7/10
Value for Money: 6/10
Effective Dosing: 8/10
Ingredients: 7/10

BPM Labs always seems to make our top supplement lists, mainly because they keep putting out effective supplements that people love. They’ve gone through several re-branding/re-formulations over the past couple years, but BPM Labs chugs on as a mainstay at least in the fat-burner and pre-workout markets, and their latest version of Annihilate won’t disappoint their fans. At $71.95/50 serves, it’s the highest-priced supplement on this list, and most people will take two serves a day, bringing the cost to approx. $2.88/day at the full dose. This is still quite reasonable given that many people will spend in excess of $10/day on a coffee habit.

Overall, we love the heavy stims in Annihilate that make you feel like you’re drinking something that works. We get intense focus and energy almost instantly, which is a big plus for a good quality fat burner. Taste isn’t BPM Labs’ strong point, but Annihilate tastes good enough to drink every day. We would have loved to see some carnitine or other more ‘solid’ fat burning ingredients in the mix. Definitely a good choice, however!

4) Body Science Hydroxyburn Shred
Body Science Hydroxyburn Shred - Protein King

Taste: 8/10
Value for Money: 7/10
Effective Dosing: 7/10
Ingredients: 7/10

The Body Science Hydroxyburn series has always been popular, thanks to not only attractive marketing, but also good value-for-money, taste and ingredient profiles. Hydroxyburn Shred doesn’t disappoint, with some great flavours (on the sweet side…), and decent value at $2.33/full daily dose. In that full daily dose, we love that the simple (but effective!) ingredients panel delivers 4g acetyl-l-carnitine, 300mg caffeine and 1000mg tyrosine, as well as a few other ingredients.

A strong contender this year, Body Science Hydroxyburn Shred comes in at number 4 on our Best Fat Burners of 2018 list.

3) EHP Labs Oxyshred
EHP Labs Oxyshred - Protein King

Taste: 8/10
Value for Money: 7/10
Effective Dosing: 7/10
Ingredients: 8/10

Always a solid performer on these lists, Oxyshred  features at number three on our Best Fat Burners of 2018 list. By now, we all know that Oxyshred tastes great, delivers decent value for money at $2.33/day (at the full daily dose), and has a nice mix of ingredients to boost fat loss, energy production, mental focus and overall wellbeing.

If you haven’t tried Oxyshred as yet, make sure to give it a go!

2) BSN Hyper Shred
BSN Hyper Shred - Protein King

Taste: 8/10
Value for Money: 10/10
Effective Dosing:  7/10
Ingredients: 8/10

A newcomer to the fat burner market, BSN Hyper Shred has made a big splash, taking out second place in our Top Five Fat Burners of 2018 list. You can’t beat the value for money, at just $1.33/day, and the three current flavours of Strawberry Orange, Blueberry Lemonade and Citrus Pineapple are all tasty. At a 7.5g daily dose, you’re getting a little less ingredients than Oxyshred and Hydroxyburn Shred, but having said that, each daily intake provides 1500mg acetyl-l-carnitine, 250mg caffeine, 500mg tyrosine, 200mg green tea extract, 150mg red pepper extract and several other ingredients as well. This is quite a strong line-up, particularly of fat loss and focus ingredients.

With a price point of just $39.95, Hyper Shred can fit into almost anyone’s budget, and is a worthy #2 on our Top Five Fat Burners of 2018 list!

1) Body War Body Shred V3
Body War Body Shred V3 - Protein King

Taste: 8/10
Value for Money: 7/10
Effective Dosing: 9/10
Ingredients: 9/10

The winner of our Top Five Fat Burners of 2018 list is Body War Body Shred V3!

The recently re-formulated Body Shred V3 delivers a huge kick of energy and focus ingredients – for us easily the best on this list – whilst still giving excellent doses of key ingredients such as acetyl-l-carnitine (3000mg), choline bitartrate (700mg), green tea extract (250mg), caffeine (215mg) and a long list of others. Each serve costs $1.71, with a maximum of two serves in any 24-hour period, but don’t be misled by this – we don’t think you need any more than one serve per day (we definitely didn’t).

The stimulants list is lengthy – (we counted eleven), so you know you’re going to definitely feel a serious boost after taking a serve of Body Shred V3. Taste-wise, it’s just as good as any other product on this list, with the added benefit of no nasty colours, and with natural sweeteners (erythritol).

Overall, Body Shred V3 is an excellent product, and a deserving winner of our Top Five Fat Burners of 2018 list!
