I'm about 150lbs but trying to get lean. Aiming for 142lbs. Want meet my weight goal within 2-3 weeks. Exercising plenty, trying to limit food intake but not starving myself as I need energy to complete and recover from daily training. Is there any oral supplement I can take that will help me shed some weight?

Go for high protein, very little (or even no) carbs, lots of water, resistance (in the evening) and cardio training early in the morning with 40-50 grams of whey protein plus some BCAA's as a pre-and-post-training meal. Maybe you might want to include some green tea and/or black coffee as well. Has been working for me a lot.

Thanks for responses so far. According to Tanita BF scales I'm at about 4% BF.

damn! yohimbine HCL 15 minutes prior to cardio on an empty stomach with a strong cup of coffee. start low ~5mg and work up to no more than 20mg. remember, as soon as you eat, the fat burning effect will cease.

Dude....I sincerely hope you are pulling our legs!!!

I don't want to sound like an ass but I just don't follow what you're trying to do. Here's just three of the many reasons why I think you should NOT try to get any leaner if you are actually at 4% bf.

1. You're a cyclist at 4% bodyfat and you want to cut another ~6% of your total body weight (8 lbs.)???? Lance Armstrong is at 5% at the begining of the Tour De France and doesn't get down to 4% bodyfat until the END of the TOUR!!!!

2. To cut 8 lbs. of fat in 21 days, you will have to run a calorie deficit of 1333 kcal a day!!!! HOW WILL YOU TRAIN??????

3. Anything less than 4% is unhealthy in many, many, ways. Do some research on what very low body fat will do to your immune system.

This is just my two cents. Good luck and keep us posted because I'd like to see how you perform after loosing another 8 pounds.

Hey, wait a minute, if one is an endurance athlete, maybe it's not a good idea to cut carbs, sorry my bad, but I didn't know that.

@wheelies.. some good points dude. I probably don't have much to lose.. not much fat.. mainly muscle. the 4% is what Tanita scales tell me so I take that measurement with a pinch of salt because they are supposedly not accurate for the "serious athlete" even though I've got the athlete version. I think calipers often read about 1-2% higher... for me.

@guijr... yep, an endurance athlete I am. Need carbs bro.. but, most of my workouts are fairly short and intense so overall I probably don't need that many carbs on a daily basis right now.

@anyone else Won't be this lean ALL season, mainly trying to cut to the bone for a couple of specific events but sounds like I shouldn't take myself too close to the edge. However, I'm not Michael Rasmussen (google him)! I'd last a week without food, I think he'd struggle after a day or two LOL.

may I ask what your interest is in building muscle if any at all? 142 lbs? I think that was my birth weight.

No my mom doesn't have a big cooch.

You don't stop working out because you grow old. You grow old because you stop working out.

imho, based on all your input this would be best bet for safety and health

assume you know what you're doing yet gotta ask, how important are these events?

ask that cause, let's say even if you did it, most likely at said events you would feel like total crap and possibly not enjoy them, and then you might feel like crap for 5-10 days after until your body get's over the stress of achieving that goal

good luck
