CLA ... Anyone Use It?

Ok,here’s a question that I’ve often wondered…does anyone religiously take CLA? Curious, because I was introduced to it about a year ago and the all buff-bulging-out-of-his-GNC-shirt dude raved about it, he takes it before he goes to the beach…this of course struck a cord with me (26 year old female, trains hard always trying
to look good and improve her physique) and bought it. He said that it restricts your fat cells from getting bigger. It also stretches the skin over the muscle for a more visual effect.

I swear by CLA…thing is, I’ve NEVER heard about it from other people. I tell people about it at the gym, etc. But nobody seems to recognize or care. What gives?

And so, does anyone take it? Like it? Hate it? lemme know, just wondering.

I take it. It’s in Flameout too. Read the Flameout thread if you want more info.

I take it too. Usually with my fish oil pills, which are only EPA and DHA.

I tend to get my CLA from lots of good ol fashioned raw dairy products (pasture-fed beef, raw cream, raw milk, colostrum, etc…)
As far as taking it goes, if it works for ya, keep on doing what your doing. Who cares if nobody recognizes its worth… just consider it your secret weapon in your training/diet arsenal:)

Ive taken CLA 2000 mg three times a day over the past month

It’s a good fatburner, as quoted above it reduces fat build up in your cells , but also acts as a diuretic , ( good results on thos high protein diets . to get unstuck )

I cant post objective actual fat loss results but the mirror accused some improvements.

Overall its not a magic but I certainly include it as part of my supplement plan

I take it. Comes free with Flameout!

Yep. 3g whenever I take my Fish Oil.

I take it…but it’s wayyyy cheaper from a drugstore then from GNC
