..... -> Supplementation: .....

    All supplementation should remain the same except for the inclusion of L-Carnitine. This supplement should be taken prior to exercise and will assist in the use of fat cells being required tor energy. A tablesppon at this time is adequate. Twinlab has a good L-Carnitine product that I recommend.
