Read a very interesting article today
A bunch of big fat women were taken and put on a restricted calorie diet. they were then given one of 5 substances in a gel form or an injection on one of their thighs 3x a day 3-5x a week. On the other thigh was a placebo. I think they did it for 5 weeks and the thighs that had yohimbe (legal and very easily obtained) reduced their cross sectional mass "substantially" more than the leg treated with a placebo.
Now I have always been skeptical of topical fat loss stuff. Until now I had NEVER seen any research from reliable sources. But yohimbe is CHEAP I think that trueprotein.com even has it.
The difficult part is making up a solution yourself that will work transdermally. DMSO will shuttle almost anything through the skin the only drawback is it stinks to high heaven. SO I am looking for an alternative right now. I have some alpha-yohimbe on order and im goign to use myself as a guinea pig and put the stuff on my lower back the last little stronghold that guys hold fat.
You can also simply take yohimbe orally and it works fairly well. The good thing about it is it does not increase adrenaline like ephedra does adrenaline causes stress which in turn impairs glucose metabolization causing fat to be preferentially stored in the abdomen. So this is huge for yohimbe it increases your metabolism with almost zero effect on your heart rate.
I'll keep you guys up to date on my self experimentation.
If any of you are interested in trying it PM me and I'll give you a link to a "research chemical" company.
