So recently I was talking to the dude @ the healthfood store whos pretty jacked and I asked him what he thought of thermal fat burners. I myself didnt really know much about them but I'm generally pretty skeptical and a lot of them claim amazing weight loss (magic diet drug!). Since i'm trying to shed some fat but keep the muscle i've built, he recommended them.
My only concern is that the one i bought has a bit of ephedrine in it (it comes from Ma Huang a chinese herb, its like 8% ephedrine out of 150mg so 12mg). I've heard some scary things about it. So getting to the point of this post:
1) do thermal fat burners really work? And when should I take them (the container recommends b4 breakfast)
2) Should I be concerned about the ephedrine in the pills?
