In 2012 I spent the year adding mass, lots of it. I gained 30 pounds, but not all of it was muscle. In 2013 I began a cutting phase that has been very successful by way of The Peak Fitness Strategy of High Intensity Interval Training as defined by Dr. Mercola. I have had dramatic results over the last nine months; however, my body had changed (remember: I have been 24 for a very long time after all), and I simply could not get the last bit of body fat off. I went looking for a fat shredder, but I didn’t want something pre-mixed, so I kept looking and found a recipe that I wanted to try. This fat burning stack has been great, and I am already very pleased (see original article)
I have been using the following combo based on the BodyBuilding.com article, and after 3 days I can already see the results (I am not a coffee/tea/soda drinker, so the caffeine buzz was intense – I mitigated that with 24 ounces of water each time I took the stack):
Fat Releasers: 200 mg Caffeine 3x/day
Calorie Burner: 500 mg Green Tea Extract 3x/day
Fat Transporter: 2000 mg L-Carnitine 3x/day
Fat Stopper: 1000 mg CLA 3x/day
Gene Activator: 2000 mg Fish Oil 3x/day
I wanted to go with the minimum effective dose, so I kept the portions of each component to the low range of Dr. Stoppani’s suggestions. I’m 5’6″ and weigh #160 pounds. My goal was to shred off the last bit of belly/lower back fat that I couldn’t get rid of after nine months of high intensity interval training. I didn’t have a lot to lose, but as of day #3 (dose #7) the fold of skin near my kidneys is gone, and the flesh between my belly button and pubic bone is taught and flat. I will do this for a few more days, but don’t intend to continue past a week. It’s good to know this is effective for my body, so that I can use it whenever I need a touch up and have only a few days to get ready for a shoot/event/appearance.
