In brief: Not that much
Not the first agent i would choose for weight loss.
Other things are more effective.

In brief: Improves weight loss
Study done - one group was given 2000 mg of carnitine, and the other a placebo.
In the placebo group, the average weight loss after 12 weeks was one pound. In the carnitine group, weight loss averaged 11 pounds. That’s an eleven-fold increase in weight loss, simply by increasing carnitine levels.
