I'm 5'7" and am 170lbs I'm at about 10 percent or so now I think (I was 9% in highschool at 155lbs, Martial Arts and lots of them). I lift 3-5 times a week and ride (road bike) 10-40 miles a week. Just have to exercise and eat correctly. I recomend Cytosport Muscle Milk it seems to be helping me alot!!! I can't recommend it enough!!!

Rican what are we playing for? I don't really have that far to go anymore....

strider you pretty much have me outdone right now, Im still at 200, my goal is 175-180 in the next 2-3 months, significantly reducing fat levels while increasing muscle mass, which means a 50-30-20 balance between proteins,complex carbs and healthy fats that boost fat burning hormones and keep balance within the body, 3-4 days of intense workouts followed by intense rope work on days I stay out of the weight room 40 minutes in total split in between by 10 min for best fat burning effect, CLA a proven fat burner will be my best friend 3 times a day with meals to aid in fatloss while retaining muscle.

1. What is it and where does it come from?

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), is a naturally occurring free fatty acid found mainly in meat and dairy products, in small amounts. CLA was discovered by accident in 1978 by Michael W. Pariza at the University of Wisconsin while looking for mutagen formations in meat during cooking.

CLA is research proven to build muscle, reduce body fat, and induce an optimum cellular environment for improved health!

CLA occurs naturally in foods such as milk, cheese, beef, and lamb as well as many processed foods. One processed food in particular that's high in CLA is Cheez Wiz. But getting enough CLA from your diet for the preferred benefit would require considerable intake of these types of foods. This is not only impractical, but would also have a seriously negative impact on your metabolism due to the high caloric penalty you would pay.


2. What does it do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?


[ Top 5 Sellers ]
1. PrimaForce Max CLA
2. Goliath Labs Thermoloid
3. Higher Power CLA
4. NOW CLA
5. Ultimate Nutrition CLA


Since this research has surfaced, a more economical and efficient way to get the required CLA has been devised. Through advanced lipid technology, a CLA synthesizing process allows for precision intake through premeasured softgel capsules. This allows for precise CLA intake at determined time intervals without the high calorie food consumption. Not only has CLA been shown to increase muscle mass while reducing body fat, studies have also shown remarkable anti-catabolic, antioxidant, and immune enhancement benefits. All this from a structured lipid. A designer fat if you would.
For many years, performance nutrition experts basically dismissed fats, assuming they didn't have any useful role in nutrition. Instead, experts focused on the protein-sparing and energy-producing effects of carbohydrates, and studied how amino acids and various proteins might affect nitrogen retention, anabolism, and catabolism. Perhaps "inquiring minds" were influenced by the mass media's "all-fat-is-bad" campaign. But now the scales are tipping toward the contrary. Nutritional geniuses like The Zone author, Dr. Barry Sears have shown us how fatty acids are not only essential for proper health but also how the proper use of such compounds may have numerous positive effects. Dr. Sears is certain that fatty acids directly influence the body's growth-promoting hormones.

Although all the intricacies of CLA are not fully understood, it is widely accepted in the research community that CLA counterbalances the negative effects of linoleic acid and regulates fat and protein metabolism in animals. Pariza, director of the Food Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin said, "A growing body of data indicates that CLA is a newly recognized nutrient that functions to regulate energy retention and metabolism." CLA can best be described as a Growth Factor.

Food intake efficiency! CLA has been shown in animal studies to increase growth rate through increased feed efficiency. In controlled studies, animals that had their diets supplemented with CLA increased their body protein (muscle tissue) while at the same time, had a significant decrease in body fat. This all occurred in the CLA supplemented animals while their food intake was decreased. Their lean mass increased even though they were eating less! This indicates that CLA increases feed efficiency and also points to a potent nutrient repartitioning effect.

This significant change in body composition can also be attributed in part to CLA's effect on immune function. CLA has been shown to inhibit the lean tissue wasting caused by high levels of these cytokines.

Actual human studies are on the way with anticipation of similar outcomes. CLA may be the most significant bodybuilding nutrient discovered in this decade. With anti-catabolic effects rivaling even the strongest pharmaceutical compounds, CLA is a naturally occurring nutrient with the ability to help you pack on lean muscle, reduce body fat and at the same time possesses health promoting properties.

Learn more about the benefits of CLA on Clayton South's Health Facts.



3. Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency?

To the athlete looking to add more muscle and drop body fat, CLA is a unique discovery that will make accomplishing this feat easier and faster, all the while having positive effects on immune function and antioxidant status.

4. How much should be taken? Are there any side effects?

CLA is typically found in capsules or softgels between potencies between 600mg and 1000mg. All preliminary evidence shows that CLA is nontoxic and safe at recommended dosages.

Having 3-4% BF at like 190-200 lbs is impressive (depending on height) but being an XC runner I would imagine your like 5'11 155. At that point 3-4% isnt such a good thing ! Whats your height/weight?
