Will L-Carnitine help you lose weight?

Filed under:

No, basically, it won't. Not supplements of it, anyway. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that helps body fat travel from storage areas to "burning areas," but your body makes it's own naturally so if you eat right and exercise you shouldn't need to supplement it. It's not a "more is better" kind of situation.

It's one of those things that sounds good in theory, and if it makes you feel better then do what you gotta do. But just make sure you're not using it as an excuse not to worry about your diet or activity level, because bottom line (I know, it sucks!) diet and exercise are the real keys to success.
