I don't see this on most food labels on thermogenic products, though I came over the information that over time, they decrease in effectiveness. A site argues that point,
"Studies have shown that thermogenics to effectively reduce fat when used for less than 5-6 weeks, after which time, the effectiveness begins to disappear over the next 4-5 weeks. with over 8 weeks of continual use, tolerances establish and you see very little weight loss improvements."
The article then recommends to take 'some time off'
Anyone want to contribute with their experiences with uses of thermogenics, and cycling if you will?
I have only ever bought a months supply, then not bought another for a few months, and so avoided this problem.
I want to use them over an extended time to lean down for a fight in July (so 8 weeks), and hence I'm curious if I should do 3 weeks on, 1 off, repeat up to the fight, or continously supplement over the following 8 weeks.
The question is angled from fighting, but I'm sure bodybuilders trying to lean down for competitions 2 months off face the similar dilemma?
I forum searched thermogenics, cycling and pause/break, sorry if this has been brought up somewhere else.
Thank you for reading,
