Dear doctor. I'm200 CM tall.116kg andabout a month I use p.Whey & ceratine but I want to take l-carnitine to loose abd fat. Pls help me (4months fitness)?

Dear doctor. I'm200 CM tall.116kg andabout a month I use p.Whey & ceratine but I want to take l-carnitine to loose abd fat. Pls help me (4months fitness)?

No magic here: Simply staying physically fit, getting into a fitness lifestyle and really hitting the aerobic exercise hard will do far more for you than carnitine pills. Go ahead with them if you wish. Unless you're a heavily-muscled bodybuilder (you're taking creatine I see), you could really stand to lose some fat, and I'm pleased you're doing so. Join the treadmill guys at the gym -- more fun than pills. ...Read more

What's health vs fitness?

What's health vs fitness?

Good question: Health is overall wellbeing of body/mind. Fitness usually seems to apply to the ability of physical action. A 53 year old man I knew was the "fittest" guy in those terms. He dropped dead while referreing basket ball, so he obviously was not healthy. Body chemistry is maintained by good diet, the fuel that cells have to burn in order to furnish the required energy for their function. ...Read more
