    I've put on some solid muscle and would like to quickly lose some of the fat around my midsection. Any suggestions? I've started doing cardio first thing in the morning (have seen some results) but want to quickly lose the fat. Any great supplements out there?

    Thanks for the help!

    Youre going to hear the mantra over and over again: abs are made in the kitchen. If you want a tight section, you gotta get pretty drastic on your diet with the cardio. Gotta cut sugar and basically eliminate refined carbs all together. Veggies, meat, and ease on the sodium. But for supplements, fish oil. A really really super fit friend of mine swears by it. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

    I don't believe there is a supplement that will truly help you lose the fat, though a billion dollar industry catering to gullible people would beg to differ. A healthy diet that focuses on when you eat and portion control, plus a workout regimen that includes at least 20 minutes of break-a-sweat cardio is all you need.

    there are lots of fat burners on the market - most of them have ingredients like caffeine, bitter orange etc..

    Others approach the fat loss from introducing lipids to the body, so it feels like theres no need to retain or store fats..

    Ive tried both, with moderate success, but the cardio is the key that I think makes it work.

    Nutrabolics 'superfats'

    Nutrabolics 'thermalxtc'

    Are two products I've used..

    Bronkaid + vivarin = energy & appetite suppresant

    Honestly, cardio doesn't really burn much fat for me, but for some reason, leg presses have really helped me cut down without having to change my diet much.

    Easiest way is to drastically cut carbs to 50-75g (or lower if you can), and do a butt load of high intensity cardio. Lower carb fruits (early day only), nuts, seeds, lean meats (not bacon), lots of eggs, tons of vegetables, and some dairy. Some grains are acceptable, but only in low doses, and best if kept to a cheat meal.

    Intermittent fasting has been proven to cut fat while maintaining muscle structure. There was a graduate thesis in nutrition that was turned into a book, called eat-stop-eat, that basic lays down the ground work and science behind the program. Try it out if you want...it's a pretty no-nonsense way to cut fat, reduce heart disease risk, and decrease your potential to get Alzheimer's.
