    Tell 'em to eat less, sleep more.

    or eat more, at regular times 5-6 times a day.

    I used it as a stim when I was cutting all my weight.

    Its not a magic pill that loses the weight for you.

    Its not really comparable, but its the same relationship as gear imo.

    (what i mean by that comment is that nothing will just magically make you stronger/bigger/leaner, it may assist, but thats all)

    Stims and supplements may have some effect, but they'll always need hard work.
    For me, the caffeine and green tea helped me to stay focused and energetic so I could work harder/longer.

    To each his/her own :dunno:

    being that it's muscletech that's almost a certainty that it's overpriced. i have some hydroxcut: hardcore (light weight!) right here and it has a decent amount of caffeine, green tea extract, and yohimbine in it; all good signs of a good thermogenic.

    I used to take that shit to stay awake in my Naval Schools... I dunno if I actually lost that much weight but holy shit would I be wired. I'd also think it was hot when everyone else would think it was normal or cold. It also raised my resting heart rate like 10bpm.

    I would feel full of energy all day then around 10 or 11pm would hit and it'd be like someone hit me with a bat.

    There are better and cheaper products out there. Stuff is overpriced.

    I think you could do better and cheaper by taking more pills...caffeine is like 5 bucks for 90 caps, green tea extract is cheap as well, throw in some B vitamins.......

    its loaded with caffeine, which is why some people have issues with it. It tested at over 350mg caffeine. Its a cheap way to make people think its "working".

    Pure EC
    and
    Thermorexin

    are MUCH better choices.

    there are a number of decent SYC stacks out there, but avoid any that have guggulsterones (gugguls are progestins and anti-androgens and they do fuck all for thyroid- thier claimed effect).

    hydroxycut does help with energy if taken before your workout (if doing cardio)

    caffeine will do that :), though on the whole hydroxycut (all variants) is a low grade pretty over priced burner.
