Do low intensity cardio on an empty stomache in the morning. As far as supplements go, you have to pay attention to the ingredients. CLA works well, but you have to use it consistently for several months as it involves a completely enzymatic process of shrinking fat cells. Beyond that, look for thermogenic pills with caffeine, synephrine, yohimbine HCL, E & Z guggelsterones, green tea extract, and L-Carnitine. Or buy Yohimbine and L-Carnitine straight. Right now I take one pill of Twinlab Ripped Fuel and one pill of Lipo 6 at the same time to combine ingredients.
