    Take CLA before workouts to accelerate fat loss?

    Does anyone have any substantial proof either way? I have been taking CLA 2x daily, once in the morning and one before workouts & before bed on non-workout days. I just wanted to know if there is any point. Anyone? Reps

    i've taken it in the past and found it completely useless on it's own. There are so many better and more beneficial things to take

    I actually take it with fish oil and sometimes flax seed....and noticed that it has DEFO helped drop by BF from 18.5% to currently 15% +/-

    I didn;t notice any real change until my second bottle, and I still have one more to go. So far so good, just a VERY slow crawl to achieve belly fat loss. I truly think it's working though...you just have to be consistant and take alot of it

    Or maybe you lost weight because of your training and diet.
    Spike92 is 15.
    ^ place this in your sig to remind the world that Spike92 is indeed 15 and will never be anything other than 15.


    When im not hungry I eat. When Im tired I train. When I feel like giving up I push harder.

    See that's where I am completely unsure, it's hard to isolate one specific variable unless you isolate the rest and test it...just a waste of time to go through all that IMO. I dunno, maybe it's helping or maybe you are right and it's mainly from diet and exercise, but I do think it's helping a bit. I am seeing more ab cuts and chest definition as I approach 13-14% BF

    Well there certainly are a lot of good, solid studies showing the positive benefits of CLA. Obviously, you aren't going anywhere without the diet and exercise. So you have to choose your supplements wisely, and in all honesty, you will probably never know just how much they did or did not help. I often find myself obsessing over supplements and dosing, but then later that day I'll skip my workout to go bang a broad.

    Anyway, I take 6 grams of CLA, 2 grams with morning, afternoon, and evening meals. I don't think this is a supplement where timing during the day matters all too much.

    Ive heard you gotta take it over a longer period of time to benefit completely from any fat loss perks. Ive been taking it awhile and from what I can tell its a good supp.

    there are tons of studies out there that support the benefits of cla. Most of them point to taking around 6 grams per day. I get 6 grams per day through iron tek cla and smart blend fish oil
