    Does CLA help burn belly fat?

    1st i would like to intoduce myself, Im Ykiki and im new here, and im on a mission to get in the best shape of my life (figure model body type), And i seem to have a small genetic problem, my stomach, its the biggest part on my body, and i know i have to do cardio and im doing so along with weight lifting and eating a low carb, high protein diet, my belly does not get along with bread and pasta, trust me i know through experience. Ive only been going strong for about a month and have 30lbs to lose. I could use a boost with getting rid of it completely and would like to know has anyone experienced extra belly fat lost taking CLA, or do u know of some1 who it worked great for and also how much should be taken? Thanx

    At 5'7" 180, it's a long while before something like CLA will make any kind of difference. Even when lean, the effects of stuff like that are marginal at best. If you want to lose your belly fat, you have to lose fat.

    Hey there, you cant just target one area of fat, you have to aim to reduce your total body fat percentage !

    Yes i am very aware of that, and that is my plan, but since it is my problem area, just wanted to know if CLA would be of any assistance with the burning process thanx.

    Agreeing with all above posters, there is no magic cure for stomach fat. Fat on your body is lost as a collective percentage. For males, the mid section is always where the majority of fat is stored, hence it always being the largest eyesore. It'll be the first to appear and the last to go. After 5 years, I'm still fighting to get the small amount off and get the skin to firm up a bit. Just keep up on your macros and your physical activity, its the only way to lose weight.

    Rep for Gusthebus due to the fact that I agree with almost all supplements and "fat burners" being snake oils. Only two I have found effective: Creatine and Protein.

    I hear fire directly burns stomach fat efficiently.


    Genetics determine where fat accumulates most/first/least/last. Lose fat overall to lose fat in your problem areas.

    I'm in the same boat with not being able to eat wheat and other grains without causing stomach troubles for myself. A sight I visit about eating wheat free had a recent writing about weight loss. Since you are having trouble with the last 30lbs of loss, you might take a look at your thyroids health.

    With that being said how about wearing a sweat sauna top since that adds lots of heat while working out, like slowly cooking bacon.

    All that does is make you flush water. If you're not making weight for a boxing match or something it's pointless, and fairly dangerous. It doesn't burn fat any faster.

    Takes a lot more heat than that to actually "burn" fat. cooking yourself doesn't work, like nlite said. And even if it's true that it ups calorie usage by 3%, it's not worth dehydrating yourself, you'll likely burn out faster on any given exercise and use less calories anyway.
