It’s great that you’re getting in shape!
I had my best results in fatloss from taking cod liver oil at high doses (some recommend 30-45gr of oil per day), and cycling at an interval intensity after each workout while watching my diet.
Just search the site and find something you could implement. Search for John Berardi’s success with Dave Tate. Though results will vary on your own commitment, JB’s Precision Nutrition seems to be the dietary plan many people have had astounding results on. He heavily recommends fish oils and Greens+, and is less enthusiastic about stimulants, such as your HOT-ROX.
Lonnie Lowery has a fitness plan called “100 workouts from ripped city” that stipulates 45-60 minutes of non-panting cardio workout, such as cycling, performed before breakfast will provide good lipolysis. Though the jury is still out on his scheme, if you could cycle or walk briskly to work or school every morning and eat your oatmeal there, there’s probably nothing but benefit in it.
What’s certain is that resistance training such as lifting weights combined with cardio workouts and a clean diet of whole foods and supplements where needed is where the real magic happens.
You have to be certain you can sustain the level of activity you choose for a long haul. Consistency is king here.
Take a measurement of your belly now and jot it down, it’s the most important statistic at this point. You really want that measurement to go below 37" (94cm). Also take some pictures. They’re good for gauging success.
Never doubt you’ll get there.[/quote]
thanks for the advise. im doing the resistence and cardio stuff 5 days a week and i take the suppliments to bring up my testosterone level because after reading many of the articles im assuming my estrogen level is causing me to retain all this fat. are there are any better suppliments i should take for my situation?
