Hey guys so Im wondering about this whole supplement thing. Last summer I tried out a fat burner with some nice results. I pretty much mirrored everything and I noticed I leaned out a lot. That was my first attempt at cutting. My diet was pretty much on point more or less (I know some of you will attack the ‘more or less’ but my diet was pretty much low/no carbs and high protein.
I didnt really pay much attention to ratios or fat content or anything, plus I was eating in a college dining hall. For example, some days I could eat sloppy joe( without the bun) and broccoli)
In addition to the diet I was working out almost everyday, following the workouts in the Arnolds Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding. Im not sure how much the fat bunrer worked or how much of it was the diet or exercise. I am about to start cutting again and although the last fat burner worked I want the best supplement, something that will curb my appetitite and stimulate maximal fat loss.
With that in mind, I thinking about ordering HOT-ROX or Lipo 6 but Im not sure if its worth it. Im pretty lean now and Im sure I could reach my goals with just dieting (maybe V-Diet) and exercise. What are some of your thoughts?
How do you know if its actually the supplements accelerating fat loss or if its just a placebo effect? Also, if you do think that these supplements really do accelerate fat loss, by how much? If Im losing 1-2lbs per week, would something like HOT-ROX or Lipo 6 up the fat loss to 4-5lbs per week?
If that is the case then I would say these supplements are very useful but if its only an extra lb then I would argue that strict dieting and intense exercise is more than efficient. Just let me know your thoughts.
Bottom Line: Is HOT-ROX or any other supplement worth it or not? If so why and please provide empirical data from personal experience (if possible).
12-15% Body Fat (thats just from mirroring it, I’ve never actually measured, it could be less though but def. not over 15% cause Im pretty cut, sorry, no camera or I would post pics)
Btw, sorry if this is incoherent, I have a million other things to do and its kind of like a stream of conscious type thing.
