I've been working out for 40 days straight...3 days a week strength-training and haven't lost a single pound. I think I've even gained 2. Long story short, I read about L-Carnitine and how it helps to break up fat deposits so I'd like to try it. Has anyone used it? If so, how long does it take to kick in? Did you see any results because my fat isn't budging!

Give it more time. At least 30 more days. You may be losing fat and replacing it with the same weight in muscle.

You say you lift weights 3x a week. Do you do any form of aerobic exercise? If not you'll want to add at least 3 to 4 workouts where you do some sort of cardio for 20 to 30 minutes.

Best of luck to you, wish I knew something about the supplement!

I don't do the aerobics classes anymore. I did step & kickboxing but have laid off those because I was getting burned out from being at the gym 24/7. Now I go 3x a week, with a day rest in between. But on the gym "rest" days, I am still hitting the bike, treadmill, etc. so everyday I'm working out. This enables to me to still enjoy my workouts. When I'm on the treadmill, sometimes I run and sometimes my incline is up to 10%....does that count as aerobic?

I have heard about this supplement on a web site for aspergillus support. All the people who I know who have tried it have been on steroids for medical purposes. I have heard that it does work well. I wonder if it is only water weight that was lost w/the population on the site I visit. That's really all I know. You should check with the sales person at a GNC for specifics and check the manufacturer's web site for any/all known side effects. That's my recommendation.

Just to let you know...

I was reading my fitness magazine about the research of losing weight. It said the did a test on working out vs. dieting alone, the people that exercises for 6 weeks alone only lost on average .4 of a pound and the people that dieted alone for 6 weeks lost on average 5-6 pounds. And the people that combined both lost on average i think 11 pounds which is a 40 percent increase then dieting alone. Focus more on what your eating if losing weight is your priority. i am sorry this has nothing to do with L-C hope it helps though

You're getting exercise. Now cut back on the quantity of food you eat. The amount of food you are eating is supporting your weight at it's current level.
