First off, I don't want to sound pretentious, but anyway, as I've been reading on recomp and fat loss supplement reviews I've noticed a general trend among some supplements that get the extreme reviews, and by that, I mean you mostly see 5 star reviews or 1 star reviews. Something I've noticed in a lot of the 1 star reviews where I can click on the name of the reviewer and see what they look like is that they're often times not in shape at all.
So if you're taking something that's supposed to lean you out and you're already fairly lean, you may notice some differences, but if you've got quite a bit of fat on you already, while the supplement may be helping, more often than not you're not going to see drastic changes. For instance, recently I've been on an / stack and I noticed it really dried me out and increased vascularity. Now, I'm already fairly lean, so I noticed the effects fairly easily. But if I were say, a little chubby, I probably wouldn't have noticed the slight change in leanness that it gave me, or the increase in vascularity, I suppose since fat would be obscuring the muscle.
Does anyone else ever notice this? I'm all for people wanting to get in shape, I just think it's nuts when someone says that they didn't get anything out of it and then come to find out, they're not really in shape to begin with. Maybe they were expecting more than possible?
I hope I'm not coming off as a douche, but surely someone else has to know what I'm talking about. Thanks for hearing me out.
