Hi, so I’ll provide some insight from my n=1 experience with some body fat that was covering my abs. It appeared to have come about by trying to always eat at a surplus as well as extra fruit at night.
Note: I thought this was water retention until asking around Reddit. And this is at 10% bf!

But to make a long story short, the supplements I’m taking now daily is
> Decaf EGCGs with all or all-1 meals https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RH5I8U0

(I have up caffeine back in 2016 due to adrenal fatigue)

> Coleus Forskolii 1x a day https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0747YVVCB

> 2x l-carnitine furmarate inbetween meals https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0013HXKC4

These have helped along with implementing carb cycling, IF, and some minor morning HIIT mainly with jump rope.

Here’s how I currently look now after these experiments from the past month, to today (greater Serratus visibility, 4pack looks “healthy”, and overall a lean but anabolic appearance)

Background: my diet is pretty bulletproof being a low carb, low FODMAP, AIP Paleo. I’m 29 and 5 8. I also run once a week at a distance of 9miles, but my job is someway sedentary. Before implementing these changes, I was under the belief that calories don’t matter at all when eating a whole food approach. Now I’ve revised that thinking to say they PARTLY matter, but really it’s moreso about your selections of Whole Foods, and not always opting for say, berries.

To get here, last month I started out by doing a 10 day Keto (was going to do 3, then 7, then made it to 10 before I said F-this I want to be able to do push-ups again, lol)... so definitely I found insanely difficult primarily from just having no workout strength. The Keto community will say that that is not long enough to see results, but I did, and I know I can be in ketosis in as little as 24h or less due to already beings fat adapted and low carb inherently due to intolerances (as shown by some Organic acid testing) The willpower of also only consuming greens as my carb source rather than say butternut squash was also starting to play games with me. Carb cycling (3 days off such as only greens with your fat and protein, 1 day with whole food carbs) is much better for us smaller body types, that don’t have THAT much fat already. Carb cycling was something that I heard Chelsea Axe (Dr Axe’s wife) talk about in something she implements and has excellent success with. I found this very interesting and have had past acute success with (as noted by the first image, thinking I was holding water but was actually small “smooth” body fat)

However right now I’m not even really doing carb cycle. In fact the opposite, whereby i like to carb backload since I workout in the evenings, but instead of fruit I instead opt for a organic rooty starch like Pumpkin or Butternut Squash, and I’m doing this nightly. I may have like 5 frozen strawberries and raspberries if desiring that sourness. This was never something I did before, thinking that rooty startchy vegetables where causing this “water retention”... which was actually bodyfat. So now doing these starches instead, nightly only, at 1 meal (idk if eating these earlier would have any difference in effect, I just like to carb backload again due to schedule, but also biological knowledge about being more insulin sensitive in the evening too), I’m noticing good results. So why perhaps?
Maybe I’m increasing thyroid output and overall metabolic rate, while NOT intaking a bunch of extra glucose.

I’ve determined that getting my 2014 Keto caffeine abs back isn’t too sustainable

Here I was in a very fatigued, catabolic, but low bf% state, whereby I killed off all of carbs, and really wasn’t eating enough raw material, despite building these blocky abs from them being my complete workout focus. However I was also doing a TON of yoga at the time, and too much running as well. I was also fully caffeine dependent using it like a biohacker that had gone mad where I’d have beside teabags “brewing” in water bottles for the morning wake up. Anyway...

Last thing... This article was also handy and my main takeaways from this was:

  • IF fast (which I can do easily)
  • do HIIT (mines more like jump rope, and some random higher acute cardio stuff)

    Final thoughts:
    If you want to abstain from caffeine for a week, you should note some greater effects when introducing it back in. This isn’t feasible for me, but I noticed this when forgetting that 90% cacao chocolate is loaded up with caffeine and seeing some crazy results. Personally I would go that route. Cut coffee and such. Then I member super dark chocolate 85%+ (not working about the fat or calories), and also Impelenbt matcha green tea powder to get loaded up on EGCGs.

    Otherwise, check out those 3 supplements, and do some IF. My fast simply is not eating until noon or 1p the following day after final meal is at 11p. If you haven’t already, switch to a high fat, high protein diet. I personally wouldn’t bother counting calories once your body setpoint is working and you can be easily satiated (and blood sugar stabilized with lots of fat) for hours with say, grass fed beef and ghee/refinded coconut oil.

For losing weight I'd suggest Animal Cuts I've lost a crazy amount of weight using them, while maintaining muscle mass. Some people will likely disagree with me but that's my ten pence and my source is personal experience.

[EDIT] These sups can feel very intimidating but you will quickly adjust.

Creatine is wank. You will manage a rep or two more but for the most part its superficial gains that will vanish when you stop lifting. Granted whatever you do gain from the extra reps, you will keep but its simply not worth it. Again my suggestion is my suggestion but I'd recommend a pre workout mix laced with amino acids. I would point you in the direction but I'm using C4 and I wouldn't recommend it if your very overweight as it could raise your heart rate to dangerous levels. Something from ON nutrition like This.

Don't be too concerned about keeping up as its all individual in crossfit and your personal best is YOUR personal best. Just give it your all until you can give any more.

You'd be surprised how fast weight loss happens initially. It kinda sneaks up on you, other people will likely notice before you. Plus you will start to feel better in general! But everybody is different, give it 2 months and there will be a noticeable difference. Just remember your diet and you will make real progress.

[EDIT] The mirror is your enemy! Don't believe what it might tell you... Unless you look beast!

Your perception of yourself/your changes will always be off. A real response comes from others who don't see you naked everyday.

[EDIT] Take really unflattering pictures prior!! I couldn't recommend this more! Seriously when your feeling like your not progressing look at them and feel humbled by the progress you've made.

u/Clareffb · 2 pointsr/SeasonalAffective

It’s rough in the UK isn’t it, the winter is so long! I found an antidepressant helps, these super strong vitamin supplements from amazon (LINK going to the gym (I know I hate it too but it helps).

But the thing that helped most was developing indoor hobbies. I have a huge indoor plant collection (succulents are fun!) and baking, bread, cakes whatever. Keeps you busy. My other half loves to paint warhammer models, whatever floats your boat. Something that makes you feel less ‘locked in’ and makes being indoors in the rain fun. Good luck man, we’ll get there!

u/throwcrapawayid10t · 1 pointr/sex

I've had chronic UTIs before as well as another male friend of mine for various health issues that actually weren't related to sexual activity, but here's what worked for us: d-mannose. This was recommended by my urologist who basically said the cranberry thing was a scam.

It works by binding with the bacteria present in the bladder and flushing it out with the urine stream. When my UTIs were chronic a few years ago I took it regularly and drank lots of water to help prevent them and it did the trick. So well in fact that I stopped taking it after awhile though I'm taking it again now that I'm with someone new.

My friend's illness usually causes chronic UTI's due to his need to use catheters all the time, the doctors are amazed that he has had hardly any compared to many other patients.

It comes in powder or pill form but I prefer the powder. It's quite pleasant actually, like icing sugar. You dissolve it in a little water or just take a spoonful of it straight if you're in a hurry. This is the brand I buy but I haven't tried others so there could be better out there.

Have you ever heard of "The Four Hour Body" by Tim Ferris? It's essentially a health, sports, and fitness book written about the best methods for losing weight. In it, Tim Ferris experiments with different techniques for losing weight and achieving the ultimate healthy body. He promotes the "Slow Carb Diet", and his main claim for helping him lose the weight? A group of four compounds that promote fat loss and muscle gain, otherwise known as PAGG Stack. "PAGG" Stack is a supplement combination made up of four basic supplements that work together to create a synergistic effect when combined. (i.e. 1+1+1+1=6)Together they work better than they would on their own. It is comprised of:
-Policosanol (20mg)
-Alpha-lipoic acid (300mg)
-Green Tea Flavanols (325mg)
-Garlic Extract (200+mg)

Policosanol improves your fat loss by lowering the LDL cholesterol and raising your HDL cholesterol.

Alpha-lipoic acid:
Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant. It helps aid in fat loss by delivering more carbs from the foods you eat to your liver and muscles, rather than to your fat cells. Alpha-lipoic acid, for obvious reasons, is one of the main supplements used by endurance athletes.

Green Tea Flavanols:
Green Tea Flavanols has been proven to decrease your carbohydrates storage in the fat cells. They have even been shown to increase the chances of your fat cells dying rather than shriveling up and lying in wait to enlarge again sometime in the future.

Garlic Extract:
Garlic extract has high Allicin content and helps you prevent regaining the fat after you have lost it.

How to take PAGG:

PAGG Stack comes in two bottles, one for Daytime and one for Night. It is taken four times a day -- before each meal and before bed. Never take all four pills at the same time! It is taken 6 days a week, with a 1-week rest break off of it every 8 weeks. PAGG Stack is meant to maximize the benefits of diet and exercise regimes. It can also be used when either excerise or diet is proving too difficult.

Is it essential to take PAGG Stack?

Taking PAGG Stack is not crucial, but it can greatly enhance the effects of your diet and exercise program. Through regular use, it can produce better results than one would with their diet or exercise alone. Think of it as the perfect icing to your cake!

The easiest solution is exogenous ketones. I use Giant brand from Amazon as my preworkout.

KETO FAST™ - Exogenous Ketone Supplement - Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Salts For Fat Burning & Weight Loss. Support For Ketosis, Energy and Focus. Delicious Formula For Metabolism, Lemon Lime Flavor https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074HFLTSN/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_4UhaAbV0HKWZ7

I treat keto salts like people use sugar water to play sports. They fill the tank the same way. And for them actually working, verses comments that they just make your pee purple, I would argue that the squash players that play 3-4 hours with nothing else in their system and use them during tournaments to keep fueled might have a little more experience than skeptics. It’s the greatest product for keto enthusiast and we use it as a family almost daily. Prices are falling as more companies enter the market. It’s only been taking off for about a year.

u/herman_gill · 3 pointsr/fatpeoplestories

You can get aminophylline/theophylline creams to help with topical fat loss ("loose skin" which is mostly just edema/water weight and excess fat, not a whole lot of actual extra skin if it was only 60 pounds).

You still need to maintain a caloric deficit (you won't magically spot reduce body fat if you're not actually eating at a caloric deficit). Also these chemical can be extremely cardiotoxic if they enter systemic circulation (interestingly enough they're used acutely in heart failure and stuff IV), but topical application doesn't produce any systemic increase.





There was one trial I saw with aminophylline reducing cellulite as well (*while maintaining a caloric deficit) compared to controls, and an actually change in the histology of the tissue (subq fat dropped and the puffed out skin because more normal looking in section).

You can buy this from smartpowders or this from amazon.

Eviscerate probably works better (more ingredients making up a larger percentage of the solution) but burns like a motherfucker (Eviscerate Smoulder apparently burns less but has less active ingredients). I haven't used the other cream so I can't comment on how much it burns (probably a lot less cuz no capsaicin <--- the stuff that makes things spicy).

Also be sure to check out the /r/loseit and /r/fitness FAQs if you haven't already. Best of luck on your journey =D

Amazon, free shipping if you are a prime member also.

EDIT: I've been buying more of my sups at amazon then anywhere else lately, I have a prime membership so I get them in 2 days. Cellucor C4 is way cheaper on Amazon, there may be better deals out there, but I haven't really seen them for the C4 unless it was a special promo.

EDIT2: Even cheaper from this seller on amazon, still free shipping with prime. 39.99 for 120 count. You are now saving 23.99 and paying 2/3 the price

u/ContractorConfusion · 2 pointsr/intermittentfasting

I use Bronkaid, with 200mg of caffeine in the form of these pills, as well as a baby aspirin.

I take it in the morning, and it seems to do the trick for the rest of the day. I used to do two dosages, once in the morning, and then again around lunch time...but I found that kept me awake for far too long.

I typically don't take it on the weekends, simply because I think it helps to not become too accustomed/tolerant to it.

It REALLY helps with appetite suppression, which is the main reason I do it. As a minor side effect, I feel like it helps to burn more energy during the day.

u/nishnasty · 1 pointr/Fitness

Hi everyone,

I hope I don't get flamed but I searched fittit, googled, checked out the sidebar, researched on Examine, and Amazon -- and I still had some questions. I am trying to get take care of my health better.

I am under 30, M, lacto-ovo vegetarian (allergic to eggs) trying to lose weight, gain muscle overall. I have currently ordered the follow:

  • Omega 3 - Algae capsules

  • Opti-Men multivitamin

  • Vintage Burn

  • Methyl-B12

  • Whey protein powder (I take it with hemp seeds (or nuts some nuts), skim milk, banana, and peanut butter powder)

  • and Creatine powder

  • Fiber Pills

    How I stack it currently:

    Sometimes, I put my creatine powder in my protein shake before I head to work. I take 1 Omega-3 capsule, 1 multivitamin, 1 fiber pill around lunchtime. Then after a mid-day snack at some point, I take 1 methyl-B12. I head to the gym after work, then take another protein shake (this one is just with skim milk and whey powder).

    Could anyone provide guidance? Am I on the right track? Thank you so much!

Nice job and congratulations :)

Okay, for folks with a gadget obsession - these things can really help you understand your calorie expenditure: http://www.amazon.com/GoWear-Lifestyle-Calorie-Management-System/dp/B001HX36A0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hpc&qid=1252989883&sr=8-1 (no, it's not an associate link or anything like that). If you've ever watched Biggest Loser - this is the same company that makes the armbands they use, but these are the cheaper versions.

It tells you how many calories you burn ~and~ how much sleep you get at night. I find the sleep information really interesting because I sleep sooo much less than I thought I did. I thought I was getting 8-9 hours of sleep and I really only get 5-6 hours... sometimes less :(

I've also seen them on eBay and on sale for even less at Amazon. There is a montly charge, but even using one for a month can give you a lot of valuable information then resell the unit. Some athletic clubs rent similar units for 3-7 days for you to get a baseline.

If you have no idea how many calories you burn in a day - it might be worth looking into one.

u/haole1 · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Thanks for the reply! I bought this (I'm not trying to promote it). It's supposedly third party tested. It says "premium Rauwolscine" on the front label, but on the "supplement facts" box it says "Rauwolfia vomitoria (not bark) (std. 90% Alpha Yohimbine) 2 mg".

So far it seems to help with my physically demanding job and so if you know of a better source, I'd try that instead?

u/mitsuboy · 2 pointsr/Supplements


This is the supplement I’ve been using for the last four weeks with great results! I’m already down 12 lbs thanks to this supplement, exercising, and intermittent fasting. It has certainly helped me with getting through my fasting periods and has controlled my hunger.

Anyone tried Garcinia Cambogia as a supplement before? Thinking of getting this product (PURE Extract from Amzn), but I'm worried about side-effects and overall effectiveness of the product. I did some research here, but am interested in what Fittit thinks of this product as well (fat burn and muscle retention/gain - basically for body recomposition). Would appreciate any advice.

It's just a cheap 24" LG monitor I got on Boxing Day clearance. It's only 1080p, but does the job. I have it attached to this monitor arm which really surprised me how sturdy and stable it is. If I needed to I can rotate the monitor to portrait mode, not that I ever need to do that.

u/vendorcentraluser · 1 pointr/FulfillmentByAmazon

I am actually a vendor central user, not a 3rd party through FBA, but I was wondering if you guys have seen this before and suggest how to approach this.

We sell one particular product in one size, one box

Several months ago we noticed a 3rd party create virtual bundles and variate with this size (they offer 2,3,4 and 5 pack bundles) What this resulted in was our page losing reviews until a customer picked our size.

It doesn't seem like this 3PL wants to make money, as the pricing for this product is absurdly expensive.

Example ASIN: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017DCF2VE

We did a test purchase and bought the product, which was delivered to us successfully. We also initiated a return and obtained a return address, but that avenue closed as the address was a UPS store.

Can anyone offer insight as to why they are doing this? This 3PL is only targeting our products, so I wonder if it's one particular vendor of ours that we cut off and they are getting back at us

u/gigi-has-issues · 4 pointsr/proED

Ugh that sucks! Tbh vaping helps a lot too. Also was considering getting this recommended by someone here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LXDJ207/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 It's a thermogenic, not an appetite suppressant, iirc. If I get it and it helps, I'll let you know. :)
