HOT-ROX Near a Carb Meal?


#1

Can HOT-ROX be used near or around carb meals? Is it not a good idea like MD6 and because of the caffeine content?


#2

How would caffeine have any impact when taken near carb meals?


#3

The issue with carbs and MD6 was because of the yohimbe being negated by insulin. I wouldn't be too concerned about the caffeine in HOT-ROX negatively impacting insulin resistance. The amount is low, the positives of the supplement would far outweigh any negative impact and really does it even matter if you are in a negative calorie balance?


#4

I believe that Cy had said on one of the HOT-ROX threads that it was best to take before a lipid meal, but that benefit might be small. More important would be following the "empty stomach" direction, which generally means 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.
Good luck.
