    After doing a search Hot Rox, hydroycut and thermorexin, it looks like thermorexin is the more recommended of the three, and it seems EC stacks are the way to go...

    only problem is, i'm new to this and don't know what an EC stack is... if I read correctly its ephedrine and caffeine, but I don't understand the concept of a stack...

    I'm looking to cut a fair bit of weight (like 50lbs maybe over the next year or so..), and I'd welcome some supplemental help if there is anything worth its weight out there...

    I've been going to the gym every other day, doing cardio and weight training for about 90 minutes total a day, and i've been eating healthier, and less, and the fat is starting to come off slowly (its been 3 weeks, and i'm down 4 lbs)... but I was wondering if any of these supplements would make it easier, or is it just not worthwhile?

    a stack is when you take multiple supplements concurrently (at the same time)

    dont worry about it yet. you just started working out. get your diet in order first then worry about a stim/fat burner. Diet is the number one tool in achieving your goals. Make sure you are eating the right amount of cals a day for your size and make sure your carbs are coming from healthy sources.

    Save your money. If you insist on buying anything, try Sesapure and Glucorell from the forum sponsor. Glucorell is one of the best supplements I have ever used.

    LIPO 6X..any thoughts?
    I've been taking it but not really sure its doing anything other than making my wallet a helluva lot lighter. Is really good for energy tho. I'v dropped about 5-6 lbs since started taking it, but i've also been at a large calorie deficit, and was doing 20 mins of cardio for most that time. All in all i'd recommned not spending your money on it, but wondering if anyone else on here had tried it.

    (5'11" 183-184, so i wasn't a fat guy trying to lose weight, rather an athletic dude trying to get a chiseled 6 pack....fail.)

    EC is ephedrine/ephedra and caffeine. typically at a 1 to 8-10 ratio, ie 25mg ephedrine 200-250mg caffeine.

    thermorexin is provides similar or better metabolic boost and generally better endurance enhancement, though it is not as strong of a central nervous system stimulant (ie EC will jack you up more).

    lipo6 and lipo6x both contain guggulsterones, which are progestins and anti-androgens- they have no place in supplements, especially for men. Other wise they are fairly basic SYC stacks.

    if you're truly committed to your diet i'd say they could help.

    i find for most people they don't do much since they think it's burning off extra calories so it's another incentive in the back of their mind to cheat.

    I'd say there is no point in worrying about Thermos yet. Start losing weight as it will be easy to do without thermos, then when you get within 15-20 lbs of your goal weight toss in the thermos for an extra boost.

    Yeah, if you aren't already losing fat at the rate you want to, adding EC isn't going to make a hell of a big difference. Concentrate on diet first to drop the pounds, and then when you hit a plateau, think about incorporating caffeine/ephedrine/geranamine/ect.

    Has anybody done thermorexin while on EC? I'm looking at supps to aid in cutting as I've just about reached a comfortable goal in terms of bf% - sitting at around 12% but want to drop perhaps 4% off that.

    manly=androgen
    anti-androgen= unmanly

    progestins can cause or exacerbate gynecomastia. They also tend to suppress the HPGA (act as negative feedback enhancers of estrogens action on the endogenous production of testosterone)

    EGCG (the prime "mover" catechin in green tea) is generally a good addition to any thermogenic stack ( why its found in thermorexin, cardio breeze and levorex).

    reccomending amphetamines, even meth, orally is one thing. smoking meth or injecting it is just asking to be eventually homeless and toothless.

    the neurological effects of the different forms of administrations are pretty much worlds apart.

    truth. hope everyone caught the sarcasm, but glad you pointed this out if not. meth can be extremely addictive, especially when smoked/injected. and can lead to psychosis (among other things) especially when smoked/injected in high doses for extended periods of time.

    I remember back in '06 when I weighed 210, the heaviest I ever was in my life. 5 months later I dropped 60 pounds. I did 30 minutes of cardio 4x a week while on the supp. "Stacker 3," along with cutting watching my caloric intake
