    Ok so basically, I am bulking up right now. I am 5'7, 175, pretty solid with a wide frame. However I have a tiny gut on me, nothing big to the point where I dont look good in a tank top, just something I want to lose.. However as I am bulking now, I am not doign cardio training, but I want to lose a tiny bit of fat around my belly/waist.

    My buddy swore by the Ripped Fuel (with epehdra), but nobody carries it anymore. I went to GNC and bought a bottle of "Thermo Burst" for like 19$.

    Basically a simple rundown, it has aroudn 190mg of caffeine (sourced from ginger, guarana, yerba extracts, Vitamin C and B6. Im not sure how well this stuff works, Im just looking to shred some fat off while Im bulking, that is all.


    any input, etc?

    I also read a bit up about the famous "ECA Stack" deal, and I read some people take these fat burn products WITH apsirin? What is the purpose of that? I may have misread, but educate me, as I hoenstly do not know a whole lot about fat loss.

    Thanks

    BTW Im not a GNC sackrider, never go in there much honestly , but I thought this stuff may work, and its loaded with caffeine. I suppose if it makes me TOO jittery, i just wont take it.

    If you're bulking, don't even worry about thermos. Clean bulk- eat good food and lots of it- and stay away from excessive use of stimulants :p..oh yeah and lift heavy.

    ECA and other thermogenics won't get you cut in the first place; they can help you wring every last bit out of your program but you need to have your diet and workout spot-on first or they're worthless.

    read the fat loss sticky

    If you are bulking, you will not be losing fat (unless you have never lifted before)
