    OK, guys..

    I know to most of you the idea of taking a fat burner, seems like complete and utter cheating, but I'm way past that by now! icon_smile.gif

    I'm 6'2, and a little over 180lbs.

    My mid-section has been wrecked by fat, that I can't seem to get rid of, now matter how much cardio I try to add to my routine at the gym. Or, by manipulting my diet.

    I'm 26, miss my abs, and want them back!! Have any of you taken any fat burners that you would recommend?

    Let me know.

    Thanks!

    Lipo 6 is one of the best fat burners out there! the ingredients found in it do work with a persons metabolisim to increase it, if a person uses it, maintains eating healthy, and working out it can greatly increase your chances of seeing those abs again

    Good question! I have been looking to try one but having a hard time finding reviews online. A friend suggested Hot Rox. The site says its the best thing in the universe but that is expected.

    justjk,

    Have you tried Lipo 6, yourself?

    If so.. How long did it take to see results?

    Thanks for the info.

    Don't waste your money on Biotest products (Hot Rox). They're overpriced and quickly becoming the next Muscletech when it comes to servings per container. The best fat burner that I've ever used has been Jet Fuel by German American Technologies. It gives you a pretty smooth level of energy and works great with cardio.

    Bodybuilding.com has a section where guys can comment on supplements. Haven't looked at it for awhile, but it may be a good source of "user" opinion. I think it's in the forum section.

    I've used Hydroxycut for some months and I get fairly good results, but I've never gone beyond the 2-tablet a day stage 'cause it gives me TOO much of a buzz. For a young guy like yourself, it might be fine.

    I don't think it is so much seen as cheating so much as a waste of time and money. I would be curious to hear more about your workout and eating habits. Chuckystud is way better at dispensing useful information for these types of questions than I. Maybe he will chime in on this one.

    Instead of ingesting crap like that, why don't you change your diet? Cut out sugars and you'll watch the pounds melt away. We're all so overly sugared up these days. Try cutting out grains, starches, and milk products for a week or two and you'll drop some serious weight. And feel a lot better!

    I started a pretty extreme diet a month ago (for medical reasons). All I eat is meat, veggies, oils, spices, herbs, and a limited amount of nuts. I also cut out all caffeine. The first week sucked bad, but by week two I had more energy than I've had in decades. I don't get cravings, my blood sugar is steady, my endurance is through the roof, I can see my abs for the first time since high school, and I just feel awesome.

    I've now been allowing myself small servings of healthy alkaline-forming grains like quinoa and amaranth. I also cook with a lot of coconut oil (instead of butter). Not only is it healthier, but it is anti-fungal, so it helps keep yeast under control. Another good thing to add to your diet is Xylitol instead of sugar. It's sweet just like sugar, but is also anti-fungal. No aftertaste and it's not a chemical like aspartame and sucralose, both of which are *horrible* for you.

    Everyone's looking for the magic pill, but that stuff is unproven and I'll put money on it that people who take a lot of these so-called nutritional supplements will find themselves with also sorts of stomach, kidney, and liver problems when they get older. Not much of that stuff is well tested and even the stuff that is hasn't been on the market long enough to really appreciate the long-term effects.

    Change your diet. Change your life.

    haven't tried hardcore but regular hydroxycut when combined w/reduced calories and routine lifting helped me lose an inch off my waist in a week and a half. think I'm gonna try lipo 6x this year just to see how much better it works. lemme know what you decide on.

    xylitol is a chemical, too. As is...EVERYTHING!

    Back in June when I really started hitting the gym, I was about to start taking Ripped Fuel. I had used it back in high school when I was in swimming and noticed results pretty quickly with but a friend had told me about Lipo 6. I asked one of the trainers at my gym about Ripped Fuel, Lipo 6 and Hydroxycut. I never really noticed much with the regular form of Hydroxycut so I was considering Hydroxycut Hardcore.

    According to the trainer, Lipo 6 was a bad choice because it not only burns up fat but also breaksdown muscle. He said if you want to burn just fat its better to stick with Hydroxycut Hardcore. Ive been taking it since and I have seen pretty good resuls rather quickly. In about a months time I went from a 42 in waist to a 36-38. totally amazing results as far I am concerned. I jus didnt want to breakdown muscle.

    An ECA stack ACTUALLY WORKS, I think it's illegal in the states, but you can get it off Astronutrition.

    I used HotRox for a while last year...I thought they were pretty good at helping me cut fat, but while on them I had a really hard time gaining muscle...never lost any, but couldn't make the gains I was hoping for. they did help me get down to a ridiculously low body fat percentage...got down to 3.5% and decided that I didn't need the HotRox anymore!

    Thermonex from BSN works pretty well. You just have to watch the dosage. Start w/ one and then maybe 2 tablets to see how your body responds. 3 is too much of a buzz for me.

    I recently purchased a bottle of MX Lean System 7 and was wondering also if this one has gotten any good feedback from anyone here. I've heard good things about Hydroxycut HC and the Lipo 6 one but the MXLS 7 has been getting some great feedback by men specifically and was wondering if getting this one is worth it.

    Ive used alot of these types of products...I hate anything by Muscletech. I think they are just a big ripoff and you have to take massive amounts (they say) so you have to buy more!!

    Lipo 6 was ok, but the best I have used so far is a new product by MHP called Dren. It makes my stomach feel a little queasey sometimes but my energy level is steady when I take it and...

    you only have to take 1 pill for 12 hours!!!! Thats right 1!!! I love it!! Its a good product.

    They're all toxic. It's funny; fans of the uppers are all the same.

    First, no pill will rid you of fat. It will give you energy to push yourself, but will also suppress your appetite, probably cause dehydration, muscle tension, and in the worst case, cause you to overlook your body's natural signs of fatigue. These signs signal when the workout should come to a natural end.

    Stay on them and you'll be bitchy, crash once they wear off, starve, binge once your appetite returns and have strange sleep patterns.

    Lastly, if you need a boost, try a 6 oz cup of coffee or black tea. Plenty kick and none of the weird side effects, except maybe a massive bm. icon_smile.gif

    Since my first post on this thread I've been on Lipo6 and have not particularly liked it. No bad effects, but I don't get the energy or "buzz" that Hydroxycut gave me. With Hydrox. I was ready and eager to get in a workout. With Lipo no such feeling. I am going back on Hydroxycut tomorrow.

    Maybe which product works for you has something to do with one's metabolism?

    If you have been on fat burners since December and prior to that by the sound of it I would sort your diet and training out as the fat burners are not doing much then as you probably wouldnt need to be on them now if you had the diet and training right.

    Save your pennies and get wise icon_cool.gif

    Guys, what about Lipozene?

    Do you have excess body fat? Body fat is hard to get rid of. Body fat gathers around your midsection and causes love handles.

    NOW you can lose pounds of body fat without changing your life.

    Lipozene is only for those who are serious about losing pounds of body fat.

    Pretty much all of these "fat burners" are caffeine or drived from caffeine, and other natural herbs that have no clinical studies to prove they burn fat.

    Most of these used to contain ephedrine, which was outlawed because it was used in the production of meth. There were other ingredients that were tried, but they were banned by the FDA because of claims of rapid heart movements and someother health concerns.

    So now they have ingredients that do little more than provide a super-boost of caffeine, but no real fat burning properties.

    Haha! I especially like how the commercial shows a diagram of a fatty male body and says "Body fat increases with having kids." Ha!

    Well not strictly true most of these herbs are toxins as is caffeine. A toxin stimulates your metabolism by the very process of the body working hard to rid itself of it. Hence the term "stimulant".

    But I agree most of these are a waste of time. Diet and hydration are the key, if you look at half these fat burners and the reccomendations they make on water consumption and then look at the studies on the impact of increased hydration you start to think why bother with the pill aspect as it doesnt account for much.

    Eph was also banned because of its impact on heart and other organs

    Is there still fat you are trying to get rid of, or is it that your skin is not shrinking along with the fat loss? Extreme changes in body composition cause your skin to stretch, unfortunately the rebound is problematic if you lose weight rapidly...

    If the problem is not excess skin:

    MODIFY YOUR DIET...

    No sodium, white bread or rice, sugar or other complex carbs (potatoes)

    Drink water, drink water, drink water!!!

    This is a diet that I use when I am training:

    MORNING: Four eggs
    One package of instant oatmeal
    Fresh Fruit

    WATER

    MID-MORNING: Protein shake

    WATER

    LUNCH: One boneless/skinless chicken breast < it can become monotamous, use BBQ Sauce, lemon, etc.. if you can not handle eating chicken every day>
    Vegetable < fresh veggies are ideal, canned veggies are ok also>
    Three red potatoes

    WATER

    MID-AFTERNOON: Protein shake
    WATER

    DINNER: Lean fish, boneless/skinless chicken breast, low fat beef and fresh salad w/ low fat dressing and/or vegetable < fresh veggies are ideal, canned veggies are ok also>

    WATER

    AFTER WORKOUT AND BEFORE BEDTIME: Protein shake

    WATER


    I hope this helps... please let me know!!! icon_biggrin.gif
