MELT is meant to be taken while in a calorie deficit. When breastfeeding you should be at maintenance + 500 calories; therefore, you won’t see much, if anything, from using it while breastfeeding as the product is intended to amplify the results while in a deficit. With that being said, we do not recommend it until you are done nursing.
Q: When should you take MELT?
There is no “better” time to take MELT. You can take it in the morning, before your workout, after your workout, during your cardio session, with lunch, etc. Take it whenever it works best for you, but we do recommend being mindful of how late in the day you take the stim versions as there is caffeine in them.
Q: Will MELT break my fast?
If you are fasting for fat loss, then no MELT will not break a fast, but if you are fasting for cellular autophagy then yes MELT will break your fast.
Q: What’s the difference between stim and stim-free?
Our non-stim MELT will provide the same amazing benefits and results as the stim version except we removed the following ingredients: Caffeine, Bitter Orange, Theobromine, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin E, and Rauwolfia Root Extract. In place, we added CitraPeak and Ferulic Acid. Alongside the removal of some ingredients, we also adjusted the dosing on others such as Acetyl L-Carnitine, Ashwagandha, Green Tea Leaf Extract, and Taurine. The dosing adjustments, ingredient removals, and ingredient add-ins were necessary to ensure you still receive the same incredible results and benefits from the stim-free version as you would the stimulant. This makes the stim-free MELT perfect for those that are caffeine/stimulant sensitive or want to consume their caffeine elsewhere! For an in-depth breakdown of the two click here.
Q: How does MELT work?
MELT works in 3 ways: mobilizing fat, oxidizing fat, and improving metabolic efficiency. The physiological process of fat loss occurs when fats are liberated from fat cells into circulation to supply the needed energy.
Fat is stored in adipose tissue as triglycerides. Fat mobilization is when there is an increased breakdown of these triglycerides (fat) with the release of fatty acids into the bloodstream. MELT contains ingredients, such as Capsimax, that will increase fat mobilization (the breakdown of fat). Once fat mobilization is completed, fat oxidation begins. Where the fatty acids that were released during fat mobilization can then be oxidized (burned/used) for energy. There are also ingredients in MELT that improve fat oxidation (fat burned for energy) such as Acetyl-L-Carnitine!
So if more fat molecules are being released into the bloodstream through fat mobilization and used for energy through fat oxidation that means you're burning more fat for fuel and preventing fat storage.
Now let’s discuss metabolic health. During fat loss, it is not uncommon for your metabolism to slow down. Your metabolism is the chemical processes that occur in the body's cells that provide energy for vital functions required to maintain life (aka keep you alive). If you are operating at a 4 out of 10, your fat loss will operate at the same level too. Therefore, even if you are doing everything right, it is imperative to ensure you are fueling your body with the proper vitamins and nutrients for it to function as best it can. This is why we included additional vitamins and ingredients to ensure you are operating at a 10 at all times, not just for fat loss reasons, but for overall health reasons as well.
MELT also contains several ingredients that make calorie cutting easy by crushing your appetite and reducing food cravings!
Q: Does MELT replace PREworkout?
MELT is not a PREworkout, but you can take it prior to your workout if you’d like. We personally prefer to take our PRE prior to our lifts as the ingredients are geared towards weight lifting (improving blood flow, increasing the pump, reducing muscle fatigue).
Q: Can you take MELT and PREworkout together?
Yes, you can combine the two! If you’re using the stim versions, just be mindful of your total daily caffeine intake. 1 scoop of stim MELT has 50mg of caffeine and 1 scoop of stim PRE has 125mg. Those numbers double if you take 2 scoops of stim MELT and 2 scoops of stim PRE.
Q: Do I need to workout to use this product?
No, you do not have to workout to use this product. You just need to be in a calorie deficit.
Q: Can I/Should I use MELT everyday?
MELT should only be consumed if you’re in a calorie deficit; therefore, if you're in a deficit then yes you can take it daily! This includes rest days. Calorie deficit is a weekly average, not a daily one. So the rest day should be calculated into your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure – the amount of calories you burn on a daily basis when exercise is taken into account).
Q: Can you mix MELT with other products?
You can mix virtually any of our products together; however, we don’t recommend mixing fiber with anything else as you need to drink it quickly. Other than that, pairing one product with another will not negate the effects of either product.
Q: Should you start with 1 scoop or 2?
We recommend starting off with 1 scoop to see how your body responds/how you feel for at least a week. The amount is going to vary from person to person as everybody is different. You may only need 1 scoop then the tub will last twice as long. And if you’re noticing results on 1 and want to see what you experience with 2, have at it and see how it goes!
Q: How much caffeine is in MELT?
There’s 100mg of caffeine per 2 scoops of stim MELT, but we recommend starting out with 1 scoop and seeing how your body tolerates it before moving onto 2 scoops. Our stim-free MELT contains no caffeine.
Q: Will MELT make you feel nauseous/jittery/itchy?
It will vary from person to person. Some people feel that way from just a cup of coffee, which is why we recommend starting out with 1 scoop of MELT. We personally have never felt this way and haven’t had customers report feeling this way either.
Q: What is a calorie deficit? How much of a deficit do I have to be in to maximize results?
In order to lose weight, you have to be in a calorie deficit, meaning you need to be consuming less calories than you burn. Your calorie intake should be between your basal metabolic rate and total daily energy expenditure. Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the amount of calories you burn without activity/exercise. It’s the calories you burn at rest and is the minimum amount of calories you need in order to maintain vital functions within the body such as breathing and brain function. You never want to consume less than your BMR as it can lead to metabolic damage and hinder your ability to lose weight. Your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) is the amount of calories you burn per day when exercise is taken into account (BMR + activity). When it comes to weight loss, it’s how many calories you can consume without gaining or losing weight. So in order to be in a deficit, your calorie intake needs to be between your BMR and your TDEE. We recommend finding your TDEE and subtracting 25% of that number to find where your calories should be to be in a calorie deficit. You can find how to calculate these numbers here.
Q: Can you take MELT while reverse dieting?
We recommend taking it until the day you are no longer in a deficit (once you hit your maintenance calories).
Q: Can you take MELT when you’re at your maintenance calories?
It’s most beneficial to take MELT while in a deficit, but if you are at maintenance, tracking progress closely, and still wanting to take MELT please let us know if you see any body recomposition changes.
Q: When you stop taking MELT will you gain weight back?
Not taking MELT won’t grow new fat cells nor will it make fat cells grow. Only a surplus will do that.
Q: Is MELT vegan friendly?
No, there are two fermented ingredients in it.
Q: Will MELT increase your heart rate?
It will vary from person to person. We personally haven’t noticed any changes in our heart rates. If you typically notice an increase in heart rate from caffeine, the caffeine in our stim MELT could cause it. But this is why we recommend starting off with 1 scoop of our stim MELT at 50mg of caffeine or using our stim-free MELT to see how your body tolerates it.
Q: Will MELT make you more hungry or less hungry?
Again, this can vary from person to person because everyone is different, but most customers have noticed a decrease in their appetite.
Q: Can you take MELT while on KETO/low carb/Adkins/etc?
No matter what diet plan you are on, you have to be in a calorie deficit to amplify fat loss with MELT.
Q: Can MELT be taken on an empty stomach?
You can take MELT with or without food!
Q: Can you take Creatine13 and MELT?
These products can be stacked together. If the concern is too much chromium please note that the body will expel excess vitamins, including chromium, if it’s getting too much.
Q: If you only take 1 scoop a day will that lower the effectiveness?
It may take longer to start to see a difference, but it won’t be any less effective.
Q: Will this negatively affect your metabolism if you stop taking it?
No, the metabolism will simply revert back to how it functioned prior to taking it
Q: Is MELT a thermogenic?
MELT has several ingredients that could raise internal temperature but that is not the intended purpose
Q: Why does MELT taste spicy to me?
There's an ingredient in the Capsicum Extract that gives pepper its spiciness. This is why some customers say it has a little "kick" to it.
