    Angry No results. Should I try hydroxcut

    Hey guys, I've been working out for about 3 months now, lifting, and plenty of cardio. Pretty much everyday, with a few exceptions, but I'm not seeing any results at all. My friends have already seen changes. But nothing with me. I'm not taking any supplements, just doing it all natural with a good diet. I'm trying to lose fat, and build muscle. Love handles, and chest fat are a huge problem to me. What hydroxcut should I take, black, elite, hardcore elite. Which one. I'm currently 6' 0" 190lbs.

    The answer is neither.... (IMO). Are you sure you have a good diet? Do you know how many calories you are eating a day and what that is broken down macros wise? Also you should stick to one goal at a time. It is really hard to try to do both. So either lose fat, or decide to bulk. Also at 6 foot 190 are you really that fat?

    If you aren't eating to lose weight (you aren't obviously) then no fat burner is going to help you. Check out the nutrition forums and learn about calculating how many calories you need to lose weight. Learn how to track and count calories. Its entirely possible to eat "healthy" and not lose weight.

    Where to begin?
    First off 3 months is not that long in terms of working out.
    If you aren't seeing results, either your diet is out of whack or your exercise routine is.
    I would start here:
    https://forum.bodybuilding.com/forumdisplay.php?f=13

    Honestly I would avoid looking into Hydroxcut at the moment until you get a better understanding of how fitness works.

    Echoing what everyone else is saying here. If you aren't losing weight, it's because you aren't eating in a caloric deficit to lose weight. If you cannot lose weight without supplements, you for sure won't lose weight with supplements.
    Progressive overload + progressive eating = gains. Simple as that!

    Hydroxicut won't do anything for you, or any other supplement for that matter, until you get your nutrition and exercise routine in order. Also, you must have patience

    The "lose fat build muscle" thing is somewhat debatable. Most would advise you, as would I, to lose the fat first (while keeping your Protein up and lifting heavy) and then to do a slow bulk. Trying to shed the fat and build muscle at the same time might just cause to spin in circles. Pick one and go with it.

    What specific results are you looking for?

    I wouldn't say I'm fat, but I'm definitely (insecurity alert) not comfortable with my taking my shirt off at the beach of something. I've got some chest fat, plus my nipples are puffy, and my love handles still poke out. I stay under 2500 calories a day. Lots of fruits, peanut butter, yogurt with granola protein. And what ever I make for lunch. And it's all healthy stuff, I'll admit though I definitely cheated this Easter 😅, but other than that it's pretty strict

    I am eating to loose weight. I stay under 2500 calories a day. When your working out your body is going to need more than 2000 a day so I'm just barely going over it. I've got a pretty good diet.

    If you aren't losing weight, you need to lower the calories.
    Weight loss come down to calories in vs calories out. No supplements are going to change that.

    How do you know you are eating 2500 calories a day? What you listed above makes me question that.... Also have you ever figured out your TDEE's? IF you haven't please do and let us know. Then actually calculate what you each every day. Once you do that we can be more helpful.

    I'm looking to she'd fat, and get lean. I'm not really fat, just a little chubby here and there. I've got muscle. I lift the most weight of my friends, so I just want to lose the fat so the muscle is what you see

    I'm using the nutrition information on the back of what I'm eating. And then a app to see how much is in the produce I consumer. From what I've added up it's right around 2500

    Are you weighing your food?
    You would be surprised how off "guesstimating" can be.

    If you're not losing weight, that means you need to eat less than 2500 calories. Whenever you plateau, you must drop the amount of calories you're eating to continue getting results.

    What do you eat during the day? By you saying you do not weigh your food I will go on a limb and say you probably are not eating 2500 cals a day.

    Alright... you have not really counted your calories.
    Not from the way you are describing it.

    You can start >>> HERE <<< and then read a couple other stickies in that same forum section.

    You will have to calculate your TDEE, weigh your food, stay some 15% under your TDEE, and maintain that for a while. Then you can begin to see some of the weight drop.

    Op three months is not a whole lot of time be expecting huge results. I would keep your diet the same but consider doing more cardio, or try some high intensity interval training (HIIT).

    Then you cannot tell me you are getting 2500 calories if you don't weigh your food. Half a cup of rice vs a full cup of rice will have double the caloric value. So you are inconsistently coming in below or above 2500 calories. Need to start weighing as well and keep an accurate account of your calories to know what adjustments you need to make and that you aren't going over your daily macros.
