Citrulline won't in and of itself aid fat loss, though it may allow you to increase the level of intensity and duration of excercise, as well as aid recovery.

What's something to aid in fat loss (not scale weight)?

If you are looking for fat loss, then look towards ppar-alpha supplements like SesaThin and TTA.Originally Posted by R3d
ALCAR and citrulline will help in an indirect way for fat loss, although ALCAR does have a direct manner of helping. Try that stack for a while and add some K-R-ALA or Na-R-ALA for glucose sensitizing and nutrient repartioning.

If stim's are a go - then add EC to the above stack. Other options are availible, but these should be fat loss staples for most.

I don't think stims would be a good idea b/c he is more concerned about endurance and they might make his cardio suffer, but I still see your point.Originally Posted by Stay Puft

The reason I'm trying to improve my cardio performance is so I can drop BF.
If a stimulant reduces my ability in cardio performance (assuming it doesn't interfere with weight training), but makes up for it with fat loss, then I don't mind .

Any other recommendations?
How accurate are these compared to a stim?ppar-alpha supplements like SesaThin and TTA

I'm not sure accurate was an appropriate word choice. Perhaps you could clarify this question and I will gladly respond .Originally Posted by R3d

According to this:Originally Posted by Rodja
alpha lipoic acid | acetyl L-carnitine
another very good reason to take some form of ALA with ALCAR is that ALCAR without ALA will cause an increase in oxidative damage.

I've read the studies that suggest ALA/ALCAR to be taken together, but it I've never wasted my money on ALA, partially due to the quality issues of commercially availible products.
