Shedding stomach fat while gaining muscle
I was just wondering what would be the best way/if possible to shed some stomach fat while putting on a good bit of muscle? I havent been working out as much lately due to my college classes so i lost some muscle. Ive been trying to eat clean and am currently taking gnc thermo CLA's to burn some of the stomach fat, and also taking creatine(not sure if it contradicts the fact im taking CLA's since it takes out water weight) multiv and protein to try and put on some more lean muscle. Ive gotten around 6% BF last summer and i was just wondering if anyone had any tips on gaining a good amount of muscle while still losing some stomach fat (workout tips,eating tips,supplements to try, etc.)
Thanks for the Help!!!!!

You cannot lose fat in spots it has to be all over, Rosie is right: and HOT! (Love the new avatar Rosie)
What's a good topical you recommend?

Re topicals, I recommend (in order):
* Taurus Nutrition's 7-keto DHEA
* Genomyx's Eviscerate (if you can handle the burn)
* Genomyx's Eviscerate Smolder
* LG Sciences' LipoBURN (no water retention during usage)

Thanks Rosie, also what exactly does a topical do? Do you stack them? and im not sure if i can ask this or not but could i get them off the supplement store pages on this forum? (if you cant answer the last question thats fine). Thanks again for your time.

i just ran a bottle of HGHup and lost stomach fat and gained 4 pounds so it is possible to do both. its just all about diet. i was very strict but at the same time kept my carbs and protein very high, healthy fats the same, and unhealthy fats didnt even come close to my mouth. plus a bunch of green tea and water

You're welcome. In saying all this, going from your queries here, sounds like you need to just look at the basic factors of nutrition and training and stick to the basic staple supplements.
No place in the US is that warm right now - I miss my New Zealand summer!
Your nutrition must be individualized specifically for YOU - there is no point following what someone else has done, because they are not you.
I recommend reading more on nutrition and training for recomping. Otherwise, pick a goal - fat loss or muscle gain, and go with that, and then do the other.

I can't believe that noone mentioned Need2slin yet for a recomp...I have not used the others but I know that the slin works.

This is just one of those things where you have to do your own trial and error and dial in a diet that is right for YOU. You can hand a diet to one guy - and it'll work great but, hand it to another - and it might not. There's a lot of factors that go into when and where fat is burned and you have to learn your own body.
Anyone can do a radical "crash diet" and eat nothing ... and lose a lot of fat ... and they will also lose a disheartening amount of muscle with it - no skill involved to do that. You have to find a diet that balances with your metabolism, dna, and exercise exertion levels - and even then you can't control where the fat is going to come off.
Like for me ... when I cut, my legs are the FIRST to shed the fat - they get shredded fast. Next comes my shoulders and upper body ... last (dammit) is my waist. I laugh my ass off at those "ab cruncher" commercials that say you can spot reduce fat on your stomach using their little machine - it's funny. Same goes for the thigh master and all that other snake oil being peddled out there.

tabatta cardio, interval training and cardio, supps that keep glucose low like pslin, recompadrol etc, a topical 7keto wouldnt be bad either. L trypophan maybe pre bed- increase seratonin than the metabolism
