    Hello,
    I am trying to lose belly fat. I am not overall very fat and the last time I measured my body fat using hydrostatic testing http://www.fitnesswave.com/portal/portal/getdunked/services/underwater I measured at 9%(I probably believe I am at 12% since I don't see a 6 pack). I want to get under 8% and was wondering if I should use an EC stack http://www.hotnfit.com/ecstack . I eat about 3000 calories a day and play about 10 hours of volleyball a week(4 days) in addition to 5 hours of exercise in the gym. I have a shoulder injury that has been preventing me from doing upper body exercises for the past year and I usually do HIIT(30 mins) followed by ab or leg exercises. A EC stack is not recommended before a HIIT so should I consider alternatives?

    hi
    you are relatively lean aldready and very active. I wouldnt advise using any form of Ephedrine as potential side effects with raised blood pressure
    as you said especially no good prior to HIIT as increases heart rate .
    You need to look into adjusting your /weight training regime to lose last few pounds round your belly, you will not be able to spot reduce, if will go eventually just have to keep at it . =)

    Focus on achieving a caloric deficit every single day, if you can track your calories using a scale, measuring cups and MyFitnessPal it would be best. Stay away from fat burners, they are just a waste of money - in time you will lose fat, aim for a 500-1000 caloric deficit per day and the fat will come off 1-2lb a week slowly but surely. Lots of advice on this forum just have to look around, educate yourself and stay away from quick fixes.
