Done my Research.. few q's
So heres the deal, i am thinking of incorporating Hydroxycut into my diet. I have a source who can get me the USA version for a good price since the CDN stuff is garbage and expensive.
Does it suppress strength in any way?
I know it works for sedentary people so with a solid training program and mild cardio twice a day should i be aware of losing too much too fast?
Should i boost/reduce my diet in anyway to help/compensate for HC's effects on the above q?
Just wanted it know before i take it and see any muscle loss. I know that alot of people have either maintained or gained mass while on HC so just wondering if there is anything that one should do in order to maximize gains or retain gains made.
Thanks in advance!

Instead of having to worry about getting Hydro to you for the US price, why don't you just make your own ECA ?? (ephedrine, caffiene, aspirin) - that's all Hydro is anyways.

Binx my wife and I both did that, for a total of 4 weeks and we noticed no difference in weight. A little more aware but that was it.
Binx started a HC cycle last sunday and of this morning she has dropped 4lb. The only difference in her diet/training was the addition of HC.
I know that HC has a carb inhibitor in it so i was wondering if the body just enters a low carb type mode while on HC. Hence my q about diet above.

If you wanna do any type of ECA (whether it be Hydro, Rip Fuel, etc.) and are lookin to lose weight, of course your'e gonna have to change your diet up a bit. Ease up on the carbs later in the day so they're not stored as fat. Remember - excess protein will be stored as fat too.

excally all the "fat burners" in the world are no help without proper diet.

Thanks for the responses.
My diet is good/clean and while i have built up a substantial muscle base in the last year i am still hovering around 20% BF. This is why i am looking to drop it a bit. I do have lower carb ratios in the late afternoon/evening as i know that is what happens.

Not only cut carbs, but eat complex carbs other than post workout, you should take in a few g of of simple carbs then. You may need to add some cardio in a well, ideally 1st thing in morning but if not after your workout. Depending on your bodyweight i would suggest about 150-400g of carbs per day, cycled, so one day 200g, another day 300g, you get idea, w/ 1 day you carb up to a degree 500g range.
