Gout Gout is a type of arthritis in which uric acid crystals deposit in joints, causing sudden pain and inflammation. The most commonly affected joint is at the base of the big toe. Gout is most common in middle aged men. It often runs in families and can be exacerbated by alcohol consumption. If you suffer from red, hot, tender, or painful joints, see your doctor. 2. Vitamins & Supplements Chromium: Fat-Burning Muscle-Builder Chromium helps insulin, a hormone that controls hunger and fat storage, work more efficiently. As a result, your body stores fewer calories as fat and uses more of them to develop muscle. Ultimately, you'll lose weight as you burn more calories. Some studies show that you will gain some weight (as muscle weighs more than fat) but become leaner. For weight loss, take 400-mcg to 600-mcg of chromium a day between meals. For best results, take it for more than 12 weeks. Chromium may alter your body composition by building lean muscle tissue and reducing fat. However, don't expect dramatic changes in a short time. Results will certainly improve when you combine the supplements with an exercise program and healthy diet.

Even I have few tips for burning fat, simple diet and exercise. Just remeber its not so much what u eat. As how much u eat. Anything in moderation is fine even chocalate and cheeseburgers. Most people think u need to eat lots of vegetables and fruits. You should have these vitamins but what u really need to do if u wish to lose weight is. Figure out what your daily calorie intake is and not eat more than the aloted calories. Then with exercise. You will drop the pounds easily. In my case I'm 29 and semi fit so I only need about 1800 to 1400 calories a day. When I was in the college and very active I ate antwhere from 2200 to 3200 calories a day. i am not nearly as active as I was so I have dropped my calorie intake to make up for the lack of exercise.
