    Found liquid gel caps in cupboard started taking them with carb meals.

    Definitely get a heat increase for 30 to 40 mind after taking them. Not too dissimilar to dip but obviously not intense

    You guys have similar experiences,?

    Weirdly I just started using some I had in my stash, using 2g x 2 per day with meals, l-carnitine l-tartrate powder capsules. Not noticing anything like you are seeing, only ever heard of those acute effects from the injectable kind.

    Which brand you using mate?

    It’s supposed to switch your body to using stored fat preferentially over carbs mate. I just take it spread out over the day with carb containing meals.

    Asked my coach about it, mostly for my missus as shes going on a shred cycle when gyms reopen, see if it would benefit her more than me, im bulking.

    He came back and said yes, she can take it. He mentioned theres not that much research on it but when he had a coach, about 8 years ago, coaches himself now, he was told to take it, and has continued to take it ever since.

    He also said that obv diet and cardio are the key factors for weight loss, followed by controlled amounst of T3, Clen and Yohimbine (for the missus) but some L-Carn will add a littie extra to the overall plan. Basically for the price of it, cheap, its worth including for a cut.

    She'll be taking 3g every morning in one go. Coach also told me the difference between the Acetyl and Tartrate versions, Tartrate being the better of the two.

    yeah i got one last year, September October time. Josh Maley.
    he trains one day a week at my gym to PT some of his clients and train himself, saw how well his clients were doing under him and my missus wanted to get into BBing more, so i spoke to him and got her joined up. Then about two weeks later when i saw her dieting and training plans come in it made me realise how much my training and diet and slipped over the years, so i joined two. Was good timing as a few spaces had opened up and he wasnt taking anymore clients after me due to him training/competing for his 2nd Mr Uni title, which he won. Great guy, massive unit but hes a really decent bloke, down to earth yet 100% focused on his training and clients.

    Yep acetyl more of a smart drug.
    Plenty of studies here if anybody interested https://www.ergo-log.com/l-carnitine-archives.html

    Mostly says it works but need to have insulin in your body to store it and you need to build up levels. Some of the studies done with injectable version which as you’d expect is more effective, a lot of the guys on pro muscle like the inject version but it’s probably something you’d only consider if you were competing or a ugm millionaire.

    I’ve been using 2 x 2g with meals @mick_the_brick for a couple of weeks and not noticed owt yet really but levels need to build apparently. It’s cheap and it’s not gonna harm anyway is it is my view!
