True Protein Burn (fat burner) Question

Postby VegRugby » Sat Sep 24, 2011 7:11 pm

Basically, I took Burn from TrueProtein, and stopped. It's a fat burner, and I'm wondering... Do fat burners eat away at my muscle mass? I'm looking to cut fat and gain muscle at the same time.

Here's a link:

Any advice will help. I'm trying to get back into rugby shape as I start as a freshman next year, and I know how I want to look and feel. Thanks.

Shouldn't hurt muscle mass, it's mainly caffeine, chilli, green tea and some plant sterols that have a slight steroid like effect. Maybe look for some vegan sources of Guggulsterones and phytoecdystrerones (powerlifter should be able to point you in that direction) and then nail some more coffee than normal?

Red bull'd be good for most of that too.

Or you could just go mental on the hill sprints...

There will be plenty of hill sprints in my regimen. A quick run from my campus is a mountain range, that I will be taking full advantage of on cardio days.

Trying to lose fat and get muscle at the same time is hard. You might end up achieving neither.

Taking fat burners but eating over maintenance is kind of pointless, also.

Choose one goal and stick to it.
