Grenade Thermo Detonator floated across my radar a few years ago but I immediately ignored it.
Almost all weight loss supplements are overhyped and this product, with its gimmicky macho marketing, screamed branding over substance.
I quickly decided this was a product reserved for twenty-something males who will literally swallow any old claptrap provided it comes in a shiny wrapper and is endorsed by Craig David.
This mild disdain was further cemented when my friend Simon started raving about it.
Imagine Gareth from the Office wearing an All Saints cardigan, drinking a skinny caramel latte, and crying on the lat pull down machine because his wife’s just caught him sending pictures of his ballbag to another girl.
This is the sort of clientèle we’re talking about here, a massive mustard cock of a man.
However, to my surprise, the product started to get some good reviews from a lot of respected guys in the supplement industry, as well as some noticeable awards, and after receiving many requests from our readers to review it, I decided to jump off my high horse and give it a go.
And I have to say, as much as I really, really wanted to hate this product, it’s actually a genuinely awesome supplement and easily one of the best weight loss products currently on the market.
Grenade Thermo Detonator is first and foremost a fat burner.
It contains all the classic fat burning ingredients which should be the cornerstone of any product of this genre, such as caffeine, green tea, cayenne and orange peel extract.
These are all safe, standard ingredients which have been scientifically proven to help with weight loss.
You can buy all these ingredients across the counter.
There is nothing remotely dodgy here, such as DMAA, or anything that will make you jitter and spume like a crackhead with rabies.
And what’s good about Grenade Thermo Detonator is that it contains no dodgy propriety blends either.
It gives you the exact ingredients, something you’ll rarely find with any of these miracle “get shredded overnight” pills.
If you’re stupid enough to fool for these pills, you deserve to be fleeced of every penny you have.
However, there is an absolute avalanche of caffeine here (225mg per serving to be precise).
I personally handled the caffeine dosage with no problems, as I’m used to hoovering up litres of tea every day, but beginners and those receptive to caffeine should start with half servings and work their way to a full serving, as it’s very strong.
Also remember to steer clear of drinking too much tea or coffee while using Thermo Detonator (unless you enjoy anxiety attacks), and be careful not to get too hooked, because caffeine can easily become addictive.
I took Grenade Thermo Detonator for two months during my recent cutting cycle and lost 6kg, which I was pretty impressed with.
I took four servings a day, two pills in the morning and two pills midday before my workout (more than six hours apart, as instructed by the label).
While it’s primarily a fat burner, Grenade can also work as a pre-workout due to the high levels of caffeine.
It certainly managed to keep me focused after a long day at work, meaning I was still in the mood for an evening workout rather than a pot noodle and a wank.
Indeed, while dieting can leave you feeling lethargic like a deflated balloon, this product helps you keep energy levels up, and what’s more I experienced no crashes whatsoever.
It’s also important to bear in mind, as I’ve reiterated on numerous other reviews, that supplements are not miracle products.
You absolutely have to put the work in with your training and diet to see results.
So if you’re taking Grenade Thermo Detonator as instructed but sneaking in a few chicken kebabs along the way, don’t be surprised if it does naff all.
But if you’re eating clean and training hard, this supplement will definitely help you shed a few extra pounds.
My only criticism would be that this product doesn’t work very well as an appetite suppressant, as it is advertises, as I found it a test of will to avoid snacking.
However, this might be a personal thing, as I’ve seen many other reviewers who have said the opposite.
I noticed a little bit of heartburn during the first few days, however after upping my water intake this soon went away.
Also – and this should be common sense – do not take Grenade Thermo Detonator before bed.
You will NOT be able to sleep one wink.
Moreover, if you have any kind of problems sleeping at all, I would definitely recommend steering well clear of this product.
100 capsules will cost you around £30 in the UK and $40 in the USA.
So if you consistently take four pills a day you don’t need to be Carol Vorderman to work out this will last you 25 days.
Suitable for both men and women, Grenade Thermo Detonator is perfect if you’re looking for an effective fat burner with natural ingredients to help shed a few extra pounds.
This supplement delivers in every area that a thermogenic should, lovely stuff.
I would definitely use Grenade again and heartily recommend it to anyone looking to loose weight fast.
A rare case of an overmarketed product that lives up to the hype.
And, bottom line, this advert for Grenade is still one of the gayest things I’ve ever seen:
The best place to buy Grenade Thermo Detonator is usually at Amazon where you can usually find it for much lower than the recommended retail price.
If you’ve tried this supplement, or any other fat burners or products from Grenade, I’d love to hear from you!
