    Hey dudes,

    Okay, so I know this is going to sound a bit superficial, but I've been hitting the gym pretty hard lately, eating clean, drinking lots of water, the whole spiel....

    BUT....

    ....there is still that last 5-10 lbs of flab that doesn't want to move from my midsection/love handles. I've been entertaining trying some of these fat burner supplements, but friends have been on them before and have gotten the "shakes" or experienced tachycardia (fast heart beats) and sometimes even shortness of breath.

    Are there any fat burners you guys had good results with, without nasty side effects? Or should I just stick to the green tea and the crazy cardio (which I plan to do anyway).

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    GG

    Quantify the amount of calories you're consuming. Create a caloric deficit. This is how you'll reduce your body fat. You'll also need to re-assess what your diet consists of. You want to consume less calories but constantly eat to keep your metabolism burning high.

    Save the money and skip the pills.

    Models, and muscleheads, all use T3 or T4. If you aren't consuming enough calories your body will slow to a crawl and you won't be able to get much leaner. Make sure you EAT. Any doctor can run a thyroid test. If they're cool, they can bring you up to high normal, or like anything else, you can get it online about anywhere. T3 is NOT a controlled substance and is legal in research quantities, so, it's real easy to come by. HIIT is integral to any program where you want to stay lean. At your age (30), your testosterone is starting to fall and you are probably a good candidate for HRT (testosterone) as well. Best to do it sooner, rather than latter, to start getting the benefits right away.

    Note that guys on mags (be they models, or muscleheads) are often on T3, and diuretics, as well as understand how to load to get a certain look. Unless you understand the science you won't look as they do. With a good clean diet, with plenty of calories, lifting, and adequate HIIT, though, you can come close.

    The ECA stack is tried and true, and works for most. Caffeine will do about as much as anything to allow you to train at high levels.

    I found Hot Rox Extreme to be pretty effective - and it gave me a lot of energy as well. The only problem is I would have to make sure not to take it withint 6 hours or so of bedtime or I wouldn't be able to sleep.

    Red Line and Meltdown are great energy and fat burners. They are liquid drinks, I suggest taking half of the bottle for the first week. they can be strong but work

    I reviewed the scientific literature (not the marketing hype you read on sites selling supplements) concerning CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) for another post earlier this month. The details are in this post
    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/894425/

    The results were surprising...CLA causes statistically significant weight loss in sedentary obese individuals but not in trained athletesicon_confused.gif

    Fish oil for weight loss was also discussed.
