I have done my fair share of research but I am still left without answers. I always have my diet in check and have tweaked my diet in many different ways to achieve what I want to no avail.
I'm 24 years old, 5'7 about 180lbs with approx. 20% body fat and 4 years lifting experience. I want to reduce body fat to 12% or less. I have done many different workouts and I do cardio but it only works for the first 2 weeks then the results die down very quickly.
I take protein, creatine, vitamins and oils. I have tried many different supplements with little effect such as, Novadex XT from Gaspari, , the Swole stack and a bunch of fat burners with no effects seen at all.
I went to the doctor for a blood test and my test levels were exactly in the middle range (I forget the actual numbers), which seems odd to me. I exercise regularly, always eat cleanly and I always get enough sleep, yet my test seems on the low side. I'm starting to think that I just cant beat my genetics (most of family is overweight).
So, I'm trying to find something that is mild and safe and will help me achieve my goal. Have I been trying the wrong supplements or am I just genetically unlucky?
