Hey all.

I'm cycling 7-10 miles a day, with a good 20 miles over a weekend trail riding.

I eat healthy but only around 1000-1500 Cal a day, which I know is low, but I cant seem to eat any more.

So I was flicking through the Argos book and saw weight loss fat burners.
Has anyone got any advice? I was thinking of popping Holland and barratt and taking advantage of their sale.

I do prefer a shake rather than tablets.

Advice welcome but no piss taking please. [/img]

Seriously, what is it exactly that you are trying to achieve?

The title in the Thread is "weight loss suppliments", which is itself an oxymoron................ Confused

should adequately stimulate long term weight loss unless you are unbelievably sedentary or getting every calorie from carbohydrates.

Please don't think I'm being arsey. I'm just genuinely confused by your post, and it would be great if you could be clearer. Wink

Sorry.

Basically I'm 15 stone I want a smaller middle currently around a 38 waist.
my diet is potato, meat and some veg on average.

So I'm looking for something to help "burn" extra fat away. Would like to be around 12-13 stone by September.

cycle more, i was 17st with a 40" waist and i'm a short ar$e at 5'6" but i started to cycle 15 miles a day and a year later i was 12st with a 34" waist but i ate what i wanted. if i had stuck to a healthy plan i would of lost it quicker i'm sure but theres no need to use fat burning pills, just hard work
i've since changed jobs and for 3 months stopped cycling and put a stone on again, still got a 34" waist but all the tops i brought when lost it all are now a bit tight so i've started cycling again but now i have to do 34miles a day and it's hard but determination to do it is winning and i'm up to 4 times a week now on the bike but the ol' leg muscles do hurt!!

I wouldn't touch em mate! Just change ya diet! The main thing is to make sure you eat plenty!!! But plenty of the right types of food!! Watch out for those high carb foods like bread potatoes etc they will not help you loose weight in fact may help you put more weight on!! I'm not saying don't eat em at all just eat in moderation!!

Well, that's achievable. But the "something" you need to burn the fat away isn't "suppliments", it's more cycling and less carbs.

Is there no way you can up your weekend trail riding, 20 mile is not really a lot, and what about upping your other rides to 16 mile even if it means dropping a day.

How do you mean dropping a day?

Say do 4x 15-20 miles a day and one day of 10 miles?

I guess my diet needs attention just don't know how.

Do one day without training if it means you are able to up your mileage on the other days. If you don't need to drop the day, then keep it up even if it means doing slightly less mileage.

Well I commute with my bike, so I could up the mileage a bit. Even if it means short route to work, and a proper slog home.

Gunner,

Just a thought, based on that article you sent me. If he is eating 1000 - 1500 calories a day, his metabolism must be slowing. According to that article, the body compensates for low intake by cooling a couple of degrees. Will 'fat burners' not provide the extra heat to sustain weight loss? Are they scientifically proven?

The body also, and more importantly, compensates for low calorie intake by making every calorie count on intake and slowing down the metabolism so that every calorie counts there too.

Essentially, he should be upping his calorie intake, ideally proteins and kickstarting his metabolism with longer or more intense activity.
