In a couple weeks I want to start focusing on burning excess fat and cutting water weight. I eat lean and I lift daily, do 2 hours of cardio a day and train in MMA by night so I have a pretty busy exercise regimen. However, I want to look into accelerating the process of burning the fat and cutting water so I wanted to do some fishing for ideas.
There's are so many thermogenics/fat burners out there that I just don't know where to start. What are some good options? Are there any "best results" type products?
Secondly, for the water weight I am looking into a diuretic of some sort to help shed the weight. Anything that will help me dry out a bit would fit the bill just fine.
Any info offered up on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look into SAN Blaze Xtreme is a mild stim fat burner that helped me burn fat very fast, it gave me edge when i had a good diet and workout regimen (the basis of any fat loss programm). Also DCP and Lean xtreme are good choices for non stim.

I agree that I wouldn't even consider trying to cut out any water unless you are getting ready for a weigh in. Cutting water is dangerous and pretty much makes you feel like ****...Stan Beres Jr. - NABBA Competitor

Thanks for the response, Ponshoe! I can't say that I'm familiar with the term carb cycle, I'm going to assume it's like cycling anything else so this leaves me with another question; Should I stop my carb intake? I ask because I only consume complex carbs. Sweet potato, brown rice, quinoa... that's pretty much it. I don't eat breads, pastas, etc... Other staples of my diet are eggs, fat free cottage cheese, occasionally fat free milk, tofu, fruits, vegetables and whey protein shakes. I'm a vegetarian so I don't get any fat from meat consumption. I prepare all of my own meals and I add nothing fatty apart from the EVOO I cook with and I add no salt.
I will look into XPel and the SAN Blaze Extreme as I haven't heard of the latter before. Did you have any side effects from it such as being jittery?

The only product I've used with success (for fat loss) has been Venom by ****. Sure, other products have given me energy but not much else beyond that. And trust me, I have tried my fair share of them. Venom not only gave me energy, but it cut my cravings and over time proved to assist me in losing weight. I have used it several times since and I have never been disappointed. I would definitely recommend it.Currently (October 2008)
