    fix your diet and forget about supplements for now. you dont need them nor are you ready for them.

    Haha, I got the same response when I asked about Hot Rox. Go figure. Well, they were right. While, Hot Rox did seem to do a good job in cutting fat, I wasn't ready for it.

    With better eating habits, and exercise, you'll get the results you want. It just takes time and dedication. Once you're around 9-10% bf and you need that extra 1 or 2% gone, then you can try Hot Rox, Lipo-6, Hydroxycut or whatever.


    Cliffs: Eat right, exercise and you'll get the results. Imagine that! It's quite a revelation, huh? :p

    at this point diet and exercise are your best bet. save the supplements for when your weight loss stagnates and you need that extra boost.

    but if you do decide to go that route, might as well get a good deal. forget the brand name shit like hydroxycut or hot rox, ephedrine + caffeine is just as effective at half the price.

    i've also had pretty good results with their ephedra extract... similar effect but less shakes and jitters

    Cool...yea my diet and exercise has been pretty stable for the last 2-3 months.

    Ephedra is the plant, ephedrine is the strongest alkaloid (chemical) in the plant. Ephedra will typically be standardized at 8% ephedra alkaloids. So 100mg ephedra = 8mg ephedrine/pseudoephedrine/whatever

    ok so ephedra is the banned substance that was "killing" people and giving heart jumps correct? While ephedrine is legal?

    Ephedra is the plant, ephedrine is what gives people heart palpitations in large quantities. Yes, ephedrine is legal, but it's going to have limitations on purchase quantity soon.

    A lot of things that are 'effective' will make you ill if not taken @ proper dosages or with consideration for other health concerns. How many medications have no side effects?

    It is caus and effect.. you want to speed up your metabolism chemically their will be side effects.

    IMHO ephedrine is perfectly safe for those w/o existing heart conditions and at reasonable dosages.

    I just started my EC Stack today, 25mg of Ephedrine and 200mg of caffeine. Just a little jitters, but I figure i'll get used to those.
