Smile FAT BURNERS!!

Hello All,

I'm currently in contest prep and using fat burners. I was using Lypoleze and Somaleze by Species Nutrition. I like the Lypoleze b/c I'm able to take my daily nap....however, they are very expensive. W/ shipping and handling I'm paying about $100 every 4 weeks.

Any suggestions on what you have used and if it worked. I tried Lipo 6 prior to get'n on the other fat burners and it didn't help me at all.

Thanks, I'll do a search on those 2! Don't have much time....so if I can't find a product that works..I'll just have to spend the extra cash.

I like fat burners, especially for appetite control and energy. I used Thermo Fire last season for my stim and will again for my prep this year. My plan (on a 16 week cut) generally looks like this:

Week 1-4 - Diet only, no fatburners
Week 5-8 - Stim
Week 6-12 - Non-stim
Week 13-16 - Both stim and non-stim

I use Gaspari Products. Last year, for the final 6 weeks, it was a combo of Third Degree Burn and Thermogenic Thyrotabs.

This year, they have discontinued Third Degree Burn...I squirrelled away two bottles last year, which I will use. But if I run out, I will switch to Cytolean, which I have heard good things about. I will run both with the Thyrotabs, which I love!

No, but that's why I take it in combo with the Thyrotabs. They are thermogenic...both Gaspari products and they work well hand-in-hand.

I didn't get jittery AT ALL on the Third Degree Burn, which is why I loved it. I absultely hate the jitters, which is why I will never use ephedra.

I haven't tried the Cytolean yet, but some people say it makes you feel euphoric but not jittery...sounds interesting.

No jitters on the Thyrotabs either. The Thyrotabs sure did dehydrate me though....I was always thirsty and always going to the bathroom lol. You have to drink a ton of water when taking them, and I recommend a taper on the thyrotabs, up and down, because they are strong and can make you rebound if you are not careful with them.

I did two Third Degrees before AM cardio, and two more in the afternoon...along with 3 thyrotabs per day (morning, noon, night). But I started with one thyrotab per day, went to two/day the second week, and then three/day the third week, and I tapered down the same way when I came off them. I only used them for 6 weeks, not including the taper down.

I may take you up on that. I have two bottles, which should get me through my first contest prep (NAs) with some to spare. I don't like using the same one for more than 6-8 weeks, so I'm not sure yet what to do for the second contest prep.
But if you're not gonna use it..........

I have used all kinds of things in the past, but nothing really seems to work so I stopped. I have never taken Thyrolean or some of those others, I have tried Ripped Fuel, Lipo 6, Hydroxcut hardcore, Jet fuel none of them seem to work except make me become an ITCH with a capital B.
