In brief: No dose for weight

L-carnitine has many benefits but there is no research showing it causes weight loss.
It helps burn fat for energy so could help some combined with a healthy diet & exercise, but this is unproven.1000 mg/day is a reasonable dose. See http://www.Umm.Edu/altmed/articles/carnitine-l-000291.Htm anyone with fatigue & depression should try vit d & a b complex that contains the l-5-mtfh form of folate (folic acid).

While there are no magic pills for weight loss, there is science to suggest that Mangosteen, Sphaeranthus indicus and Irvingia may help: See http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2008/ss2008_report_more-weight-loss.htm?source=search&key=irvingia & http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2011/jul2011_Shed-Pounds-by-Inhibiting-Cellular-Fat-Storage_01.htm My favorite diet for weight loss and overall health: http://www.drfuhrman.com/library/what-is-a-nutritarian-diet.aspx
