Stubborn Fat Stack, Part II: Making Your Trouble Areas Disappear!

Part II: example supplement stacks and dosages. In part I we learned about physiological factors controlling fat loss and beneficial fat loss supplements. In part II we lay out a supplement stack with dosages for men & women.

By: Derek Beast Charlebois

Part 1 | Part 2

In part I of this Stubborn Fat Stack series we examined supplements that can help get rid of that stubborn, pesky fat:


Supplement Summary

  • Yohimbine blocks Alpha2 activation allowing for greater fat breakdown to occur and also increase blood flow to adipose tissue, making it perfect for targeting stubborn fat.
  • Caffeine increase lipolysis by inhibiting the Adenosine receptor and PDE and also increases energy and delays fatigue.
  • ALCAR increases the transportation of FFAs into the mitochondria and enhances fat oxidation.
  • Green Tea Extract inhibits COMT thereby increasing lipolysis
  • Sesamin increases the genes involved in fat oxidation, increasing one's capacity for fat loss and also decreases fat storage

The combination of Yohimbine+Caffeine+ALCAR+Green Tea Extract+Sesamin would make for the PERFECT Stubborn Fat Stack.

Now that we know what supplements work, we need to know how much and when we need to take these supplements. Stubborn Fat Stack Part II will lay out example supplement stacks and dosages for both men and women.


Choosing Your Supplements

When trying to create the Stubborn Fat Stack you could either try to find products with all the desired ingredients in them or buy single ingredient products. One good thing about single ingredient products is your can vary your dosage depending on how you respond. Bodybuilding.com carries all of the supplements we want in single ingredient products. Let's go over the dosages of each ingredient.

Now that we know how much we need to take, let's set up some schedules.

Choosing Supplement Brands

There are a ton of companies to choose from when buying supplements. For the above stack I recommend going with Primaforce. Primaforce carries the ingredients we want in single ingredient formulas, which allows you to vary the dosage of each ingredient and find what works best for you.

Yohimbine HCI

Stack those with Sesamin and you are good to go.

Now you know how much and when to take the recommended supplements, so it is time to get to work and get rid of that stubborn fat! If you have any questions feel free to email me at derek@scivation.com and I will help you out.

I take this stack with less caffeine but add octopamine. I've seen great results cutting this year, especially around my midsection
