5 Great Ways to Burn Fat with No Jitters!

Check Out The Top Supplements That Will Help Enhance Your Workout & Results!

Posted by BodiesByTim - January 14th, 2014

If you want to burn fat fast during your workout, Pyruvate can definitely help. When burning fat it’s important to keep a constant intensity in your workout session and when the intensity drops, that's when you're likely to see a decline in performance and results.

Since pyruvate is a limiting agent to ATP's cellular process, using pyruvate can be very beneficial in keeping your body optimized for burning that stubborn fat when you're in the gym. While using pyruvate, I make sure to drink lots of water or a sports beverage.

Typically, taking 1 gram of pyruvate for every 10 pounds of bodyweight you currently have is normal. Never exceed 30 grams of pyruvate, and make sure to follow any pyruvate product's package directions to make sure you are using it correctly and safely.

Green Tea
Because of the anti-oxidant protection and natural caffeine, green tea is an excellent supplement to take when doing cardio or any other strenuous exercise routine. It will speed up your metabolism and help you concentrate mentally when you train. Green tea is a complete supplement and can definitely be taken by itself in extract form, generally ranging from 250 to 500mg per day.

If you trying to lose fat and transform your body, L-Carnitine would be a great addition to your weight loss stack. L-Carnitine encourages a healthy environment for lean muscle growth and development, which means you'll be helping your body get lean, strong, and defined. L-Carnitine is a NON-stimulant fat burner with the many other general health benefits.

In order to get the most out of using L-Carnitine, you'll want to be sure you're taking the right dose. Read the package instructions on the particular brand you're considering and take as directed. Most people will do best taking 2 - 4 grams of L-Carnitine per day spread out over 2 - 3 doses and placing one of those doses near your workout time.

A naturally occurring lignan found in sesame oil. Research suggests that Sesamin can help maximize fat loss, support liver and kidney health and maintain healthy lipid profiles. This Non-stimulant fat burner is a great addition to any current weight loss routine.

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
Looking for support to aid in lean muscle development? Then look no further. CLA uses stored body fat as fuel and promotes recovery from intense exercise. With added Immune system health, Anti-catabolic (anti-muscle-breakdown) and Anti-oxidant benefits, there really is no reason not to add a little CLA to you stack.

The actual serving sizes will vary for CLA depending on the product you purchase. But you'll see the best-intended results by taking anywhere between 600 and 1000 mg per day. Be sure to read the package directions for the particular product you pick up and follow them accordingly.

How To: Barbell Bicep Curl

Today we’re going to be going over proper form for a barbell biceps curl. Before we get into the 3 golden rules, I just want to do...


Not trying to start a war here :-) but i've always heard taking supplements to assist in weight loss doesnt really matter as long as your calorie/macro intake is correct and supplements give only temporary weight loss which comes back once you stop taking them?

Speaking from experience, weight loss supplements are temporarily effective! Waste of money. Nothing beats, a good old fashioned regiment. Lift weights, run, eat clean lol

I've been free from using fat loss products now for two years. Upping my protein intake has helped me lean out  better than using pills

right on @joehurricane

@esscee, I think the message is that if you are ONLY taking supplements for weight loss, you are wastingy oru time.  But if the meal plan is on point and the routine as well.. then supplements have their place.

If you're taking something like a fat burner, then it's only going to have a minute effect on your outcome, you're right, it really comes down to getting yourself into a caloric deficit and staying there to get the weight off. That being said, if you take a fat burner and then continue to eat in a deficit, the weight should stay off if you are eating healthily.


Great article Tim!

just a question on l-cartine.


i just picked up 60 500mg tabs for half price at H&B and the dose on the back of the packet says to take 1per day (500mg) preferably with a meal.


The benfits of l-cartine are pretty clear however is just 500mg going to make much difference Whilst looking to gain lean muscle?
