I would like a formula that changes lead into gold..know any? You cannot change muscle into fat or vice versa. You can however lose the fat and build the muscle. The product that does this is called eating healthier and working out. Its new, its crazy and it just might work.....You owe me $80 now please.

You would have to remove 3 * 6.022x10^23 protons from your block of lead to create 197 grams of gold. Now considering my answer is more beneficial to you and not acting like a dbag you owe me $160

So far diet and exercise seem to be the major potentiaters of fat loss, and resistance training is deemed quite effective in building muscle.
There are products that can help you lose those last few pounds if your diet and training in on, but nothing will turn fat into muscle.
Look into cortisol blockers and fatburners if you want to see whats out there for weight loss.

fat cannot turn into muscle. they are completely separate layers of each other. fat overlays muscle, hiding it in a sense. thats why lean people look so musclar. they dont have fat overlapping there muscles. i hope this makes sense.

I'm logging a Slim Etreme, Lean FX, and Reversitol stack. So far, so good. You can check it out if you want in the log section. "Not your grandma's recomp"

If you are looking to lose the fat from your midsection, I suggest that you target your DIET for fat loss, since diet is the MOST important component of fat loss. Otherwise, you cannot spot reduce fat from your body (it's like trying to empty a pool of water from one side first, and this cannot be done); when you lose fat it goes from all over (as the water when you empty a pool goes from everywhere).
And unless you're already relatively lean (<10% BF for a male) you DON'T need a fat burner!

BTW lead is stable, forcing it to release three protons requires a vast input of energy, such that the cost of transmuting it greatly surpasses the value of the resulting gold.Which means your formula costs me money, while the product I gave you, has benefits which can last a lifetime and is priceless.
Eat healthy and exercise and the fat will disappear! I can go into detail when you have done some research on your own if you would like more information. There is no "Magic" pill you can take to do what you asked, sorry. There are supplements that can help you "burn" fat by increasing your metabolism but that wasn't the question you asked though was it?

sounded like a normal newbie question to me. to OP, congrats on trying to get into shape their is much to learn and you wont be flamed like that by everyone. like the others said, dont go looking for a miracle pill. just learning to eat/work out right will give you the results you are looking for.

Tips on Diet for Fat Loss
ROSIE'S DIET TIPS FOR FAT LOSS
1. First, you need to work out what your MAINTENANCE calories are (There are various methods and equations that you can use to calculate this; most take into account current body mass, height, and activity level). Then, to lose fat, you need to make sure that you’re having up to 500 calories LESS than maintenance. Depending on how fast or slow you lose the fat, you can adjust and tweak your calorie intake each week.
2. Eat every 2-3 hours after waking. This helps keep the metabolism going throughout the day, as well as keeping insulin levels stable (so, you can see that 3 meals is simply NOT enough, even small portions).
3. EVERY meal should have complex carbohydrates [CHO] (i.e. kumara, rice, oats, etc.), QUALITY LEAN protein (chicken breast, fish, tuna, salmon, lean beef, egg whites, etc.), and FIBROUS CHO (i.e. vegetables, green ones in particular).
4. Drink 4.5 litres of water per day. This will help keep the system clean.
5. It has been proven that TWO servings of DAIRY per day helps lose MORE fat than if one avoids it altogether.
6. Do NOT avoid fat (The only fat she should be avoiding is Saturated fat and Trans fats). You NEED fat in your diet, as fat plays major roles in energy metabolism and other parts of your body (Wardlaw & Hampl, 2007). Make sure to have at least 30 grams of GOOD fats (i.e. flaxseeds or flaxseed oil, fish oils, peanut butter, nuts - especially almonds and walnuts, hempseed oil, olive oil, etc.) per day (i.e. this is ~2 tbsp of flaxseed oil or peanut butter).
7. Don’t drink tea or coffee. Try drinking GREEN tea instead; it helps with thermogenesis, and is especially good if you take it one hour before doing cardio first thing in the morning.
8. Don’t drink alcohol. Alcohol has NO nutritional value and is full of calories.
9. Minimize adding salt to food. Instead, flavour a meal with herbs and spices (i.e. ginger, cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, chilli powder, and garlic all help thermogenesis a bit).
10. The only sugar needed on a regular basis is the NATURAL sugars found in food; these are mostly found in fruit. Too much sugar plays havoc with insulin levels and these should be as stable as possible throughout the day. The best time to be having sugar is straight AFTER a RESISTANCE workout, when the body is trying to replenish muscle glycogen stores (Burke, 2006).
11. Do NOT avoid CHO. You NEED at least 50-100 grams of CHO per day for your body to burn fat effectively. A good guideline is to have at least 1 gram of CHO per kg of body mass per day as a MINIMUM (Burke, 2006).
12. Eat most food as 'natural' as possible. This means fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, grains, etc. Try not to eat too much packaged food, as it is full of extra calories and sugar.
13. Most importantly, remember that it IS OK TO CHEAT every now and then. Actually the body NEEDS cheat meals and day. By throwing all the guidelines I have just mentioned above out of the way and having a day where you eat what you want it helps, and will also help prevent your body from going into starvation mode (where the body battles you to hold onto the fat as much as it can). If you prefer NOT to ‘cheat’, then adding in 1-2 higher CALORIE days (i.e. go up to Maintenance, or even Bulking, or even slightly higher), with the extra calories coming from quality COMPLEX CHO, you should be ok.
Supplements should NOT be a big deal, as most fat loss can be done through simply eating the right food at the right time. And unless everything that you’re doing is already done to ensure the maximum results in the timeframe that you want to achieve it in, and then supplementation should not be the focus. However, there ARE a few supplements that I think are important to any regime:
1. A multivitamin. (Although you should be eating as much of a variety of food as possible, in order to meet the RDI/AI of most nutrients from actual food).
2. Creatine monohydrate. Creatine helps the body to recover faster, as well as aiding in increasing strength levels and lean body mass [LBM].
3. Flaxseed/Hempseed/Fish Oil. This is the GOOD fats. Flaxseed or Hempseed oil is great with breakfast or in protein shakes.
4. Protein Powder. This just helps for the in-between meals, or after the gym, and to make sure that you get enough protein in (You should be having 1-1.5 grams of protein per kg of body mass per day; this is so that muscle loss is prevented, and can even assist in small gains in LBM).
Apart from these 4 ‘base’ supplements, you don’t need a lot (supplements are just a way for companies to make money. You can do everything without them!). And forget about using fat-burners or thermogenics; they are a waste of time unless you are ALREADY lean and are looking for that ‘extra edge’ to lose the last 1-2% bodyfat (i.e. like a fitness competitor, etc.)
If you're looking for more of a recomp (i.e. lose BF whilst gaining muscle), then you had BETTER get your diet sorted, since diet manipulation is the key to recomp success. A recommended way of eating would be calorie cycling: 3-4 days low below Maintenance calories, and then 1-2 days above Maintenance calories (although you can make variations of this).

everyone was ignorant at one point, i can handle ignorance because he is clearly asking questions about something he knows nothing about. you hear people asking about a 'magic pill' all the time because most of america thinks theirs a pill for everything. assuming everyone knows exactly the best info and stats to put into their first post is useless, and i would assume everyone would be used to it by now. i have also heard alot of people asking "how to turn fat into muscle" quite frequently again it goes to show americas general outlook on fitness is ignorant.
