    Fat Burners while bulking?


    I know this sounds like it would defeat the purpose of bulking, but here is what I've been thinking. I've been bulking for a good time now, prob close to 2 years. I started at 140lbs and I'm now 170ish. I'm 26 years old and and I'm 5'9". I have noticed a rounding stomach for the last few months, which i completely attribute to my diet. I also think that my whey protein of choice, chocolate Met RX, is a big contributor to the fat category.

    While on Vacation this week, a much needed break from lifting to reset myself, and doing cardio all week I realized that I would like a more clean bulk. I'm wondering about a few things now.

    Can taking a fat burner while bulking aid in putting on clean bulk? if so which do you recommend?...also are there any that dont work by suppressing appetite?

    Are there any whey proteins that are not as likely to put on fat? I read that Muscle Milk aids in fat loss.

    Does taking something like PowerFULL/Novadex XT cut down on fat gain?

    Has anyone been in a similar position and had a solution that worked for them?

    Thanks

    Things that promote muscle gain will mask fat gain because it will increase the probability of calories to be stored in muscle. So PowerFULL and Novedex Xt will help against fat gain. A clean diet is even better.

    I think musclemilk is garbage: it contains MCT's and crap loads of Canola oil (for reason's I'm yet to understand) as well as some rather dangerous ingredients which they claim to be synergistic. I wouldn't take that stuff if you paid me. Stick with just a simple Whey protein Isolate or (if you're a poor college student like me) Blend. ATW and TrueProtein will hook you the f*ck up with some ill prices.


    What sort of fatburners are we looking at?

    I've never taken a fat burner before, so I dont really know the good ones. I have Yohimbe HCL at my house, which I know promotes fat loss....but I think it curbs your appetite which is a big no no for me. I've also looked into RapidCuts, by Allmax nutrition.

    Good heads up on the Muscle Milk.....ill stay away from it

    Not really sure what's in Rapid Cuts, but stimulant fat burners I don't think are something you would want to be taking throughout the day while trying to 'bulk up'. Here's some good'n's for Bulking Damage control:

    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product/1185/dcp.html
    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product...-sesathin.html

    Other good things to that will help with glucose storage/insulin control:
    Alpha-Lipoic Acid
    Chromate (Chromium polynicotinate)
    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product/1430/p-slin.html
    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product...olic-pump.html

    If you're gonna take a stimulant, you should try to only take pre-workout. Here's some excellent pre-workout stim choices:
    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product...ant-x-2-0.html
    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product/1365/rpm.html
    http://www.suprememuscle.com/product/645/amp.html

    Now USPLabs, Applied Nutriceuticals, Ergopharm, and Anabolic Xtreme better cook me some smiley-face eggs'n'bacon for pluggin' them so hard tonight

    The Chromium and ALA are underrated supplements IMO, and are great anytime. Good for your cholesterol and liver health as well as energy storage metabolism.

    I would think DCP + Anabolic Pump would be a hella sick stack. It's possible to lean out but still gain poop loads of muscle with this.

    P-Slin + Anabolic Pump is a new stack USP's pluggin' away. I'm yet to try P-slin yet so I can't really comment on it.

    Any one of those stims will do a great job at gettin' ya moving and increasing lypolysis (fat burning) during your workouts. If you're like me and train first thing in the morning, these guys can be a life saver. They're all so top-notch, I don't really want to recommend one over the other.

    Plenty of time to try all of them..I have to call my supplement store and see if they carry USPlabs because from what I hear they are the real deal....which is hard to come by these days

    USP makes some tight stuff. It'll cost more than some of their competators, but they use the highest quality ingredients available and it shows.

    I'm about to order some, but I've heard Leviathan is actually a real good product to take during a bulk.

    Sinner, what do you have against MCT Oil?? I understand your concern with Canola, but MCT's?? They have a lot of promise - no cholestrol.... full of Omega 6's...

    I think its more the how much, and that muscle milk makes the claim that having more fat in it burns fat
