Need Some Advice - Hydroxycut??
Got a question for you....
Lately I've started to develop a gut. It's not huge, but it's enough that my pants are noticeably tighter now (waist is an inch bigger in my new jeans). I know it's from beer and not watching my diet. I've cut back on the alcohol and tried to start watching my diet a little bit more closely, but the gut still remains.
I'm looking at taking Hydroxycut or Hydroxycut Hardcore, but I don't really know if it's for me. I mean, I'm not obese. I'm in pretty good shape, I just have a small gut that I want to get rid of. I'm a full-time Firefighter, which helps to keep me active, and I either work out or run just about everyday, but still can't seem to cut up my abs.
I guess my question is... Does Hydroxycut work? and does it make you feel all jittery and screw with you, or is it okay to take? I took Anevol and that stuff really messed with me - after about three weeks it made me feel sick and depressed (It worked to gain muscle, but I'm glad I'm done with it and probably won't take it ever again).
I recently came off a cycle of anevol, and right now all I take is 100% Pure Whey Protein, CellMass, a Liver Support pill, and Restore (which I am almost done with). Once in awhile I take NO Xplode. Is it okay to take Hydroxycut with these?
Another question... I realize beer/ alcohol can help put on some weight... but what about drinking a Mountain Dew or a Red Bull (or coffee) per day? Will one or two of those a day add to your gut?
What do you guys advise? Anything I should do or take instead of Hydroxycut? or is Hydroxycut a go?
Thanks a ton for any info!

hydroxycut might make you jittery, its kind of individual. Definitely look closer at what you are eating, and try to clip out unnecessary calories. Subbing in unsweetened iced tea for sodas works well. If you normally have just 3 cans of soda a day, doing that will have you loosing a pound every 10 days or so.

Okay, the search function is my friend. Did a little more research on Hydroxycut... kinda got the idea it is worthless, except for giving you the jitters and shakes.
How about BSN's Thermonex? It claims to have eliminated side affects such as shakes, anxiousness, shortness of breath, raised pulse, etc. Anyone ever tried this?

yeah leviathan is the best fatburner out there imo. It will help you loose fat and even gain some muscle and without the jittery feeling. Lipo 6 also worked pretty good for me too.

I use the low carb/sugar free versions of the energy drinks, so I get the caffeine and energy w/o the calories.
More of :clean: and less is the idea
Also I heard they reformulated Hydroxycut and that the new formula isnt anywhere as good as the old. Is that true? Anyone tried the new formula?

Try to avoid excess carbohydrates that come in the form of sugary soft drinks or alcohol if possible. Instead of one a day, maybe minimise it to one a week? Saves you from doing cardio to kill off those calories too!
As far as a fat burner - definitely check into leviathan.. it is potent, you could also add in DCP which complements the leviathan nicely and a lot of people have had success with this combo (just waiting on it to come back in stock).
If you could relay your diet out here, it would be helpful for us to check if you're on the right track.

But basically, I'll try to eat:
*cheerios w/ milk in the morning
*some sort of fruit and peanut butter/ crackers mid morning
*a can of spaghetti-O's or some crap like that for lunch w/ chips
*a burger or cheap steak for dinner
*more peanut butter/ crackers in the evening
*during the day I'll usually have one Gatorade, one V-8 Fusion, and a can of Diet Mountain Dew. Sometimes I'll have a cup or two of coffee in the morning. Working for the FD can run you down, so that's why I resort to the coffee/ mtn dew.
*I try to eat smaller portions of whatever I'm eating because I know my diet sucks.
So, what should I be eating??
Thanks a ton.

Is the can of spaghettios more from a cost perspective, or just that it doesn't require refrigeration? Instead of the one of the peanut butter + crackers, would cottage cheese work? Instead of a burger, the cheap steak or grilled chicken with veggies rather than fries on the side is a better bet

Im liking that buger for grilled chicken swap. That will remove sat. fat and put in some healthy Monosurated fat.
and again..small fry 20g fat. vs. veggies with no fat. Another good swap.
Good thinking, Easy
