Have you noticed that some fat is much harder to lose?

Not just any fat, either, but the fat you want to get rid of the most? You know—the jiggly bits covering your stomach, hips, and thighs?

Have you also noticed that your face, arms, and shoulders seem to lean out a lot faster than other areas of your body?

Well, you’re not imagining things.

Quacks will tell you it’s due to sugar, gluten, insulin, hormones, or some other biological bogeyman, but here’s the reality:

“Stubborn” fat is a very real phenomenon, and while it ultimately yields to regular exercise and proper diet, it can take its sweet, sweet time.

There aren’t many things you can do to speed this process up, either, but there’s one strategy you should know about:

Fasted exercise with yohimbine supplementation.

Not only can this significantly increase fat loss, research shows it can also help you burn stubborn fat faster.

The science is fairly complicated, but the long story short is yohimbine increases your energy expenditure and interacts with your fat cells to make them easier to mobilize.

Simply put: most natural fat loss supplements are duds, but yohimbine is one of the few actually worth taking.

That’s why we created Forge, which contains a clinically effective dose of yohimbine along with two other ingredients that help preserve lean mass and workout quality while dieting (HMB and CDP-choline).

So, if you want to lose fat faster—and especially belly, hip, and thigh fat—while also maintaining lean mass and workout performance . . . you want to try Forge today.

You won’t be disappointed.

In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Forge, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or return necessary.

You really can’t lose, so order now and get ready to enjoy more fat loss, and stubborn fat loss in particular, as well as more energy and focus during your workouts.

If you’ve ever looked for advice on how to lose fat faster—and especially “stubborn” hip, belly, and thigh fat—you’ve probably read about exercising on an empty stomach.

According to many experts, training on an empty stomach is a simple but powerful way to increase the amount of fat your body burns while you work out.

There’s some truth here, but it’s not that simple.

How empty of a stomach, exactly? What types of exercise work best? Are there any drawbacks?

Well, the first thing you need to understand is that it’s not enough to simply have a stomach that feels “empty.” This guarantees nothing in the way of accelerated fat loss.

What can help you lose fat faster, however, is training in a “fasted” state, which has to do with the levels of various hormones in your blood that affect fat loss, not how empty or full your stomach is.

You see, when you eat food, your body’s insulin levels rise, and it begins breaking down, absorbing, and using and storing nutrients.

This is known as the “postprandial” (prandial means “having to do with a meal”) or “fed” state, and it can last anywhere from two to six or more hours, depending on how much and what types of food you ate. [1]

Eventually, your body finishes processing the meal, and insulin levels drop to a low, stable baseline level, where they remain until you eat again. This is known as the “postabsorptive” or “fasted” state.

Every day, your body flips back and forth between fed and fasted states.

Exercise done while your insulin levels are elevated and your body is still processing your last meal is “fed training,” and exercise done when your body isn’t working to digest and absorb food and insulin levels are low is “fasted training.”

Now, there’s nothing wrong with training in a fed state when you’re wanting to lose fat. Any exercise burns energy, which supports your weight loss efforts.

Training in a fasted state offers several unique fat loss benefits, however:

  1. Research shows that exercising in a fasted state increases both lipolysis and fat oxidation rates. [2][3]

    In other words, your body is able to both mobilize and burn more fat during a fasted workout than fed one.

  2. Research shows blood flow in the abdominal region is increased when you’re in a fasted state, which helps you burn the “stubborn” fat in this region. [4]

    One of the problems with stubborn fat is reduced blood flow, and fasted training can help with this.

There’s a downside to fasted training, however: it significantly increases muscle breakdown rates. [5]

This is undesirable because if you damage and break down too many muscle cells in and after your workouts, your body won’t be able to keep up with repairing your muscle tissue.

Another downside to fasted exercise is lackluster workouts.

Many people find they have less energy and focus when training in a fasted state and thus can’t maintain the level of physical and mental intensity they’re used to.

So, as you can see, fasted training is a double-edged sword—it can be good for losing fat faster, but it’s not so good for maintaining muscle and enjoying your workouts.

With Forge, however, you get more of the good and less of the bad.

Specifically, it amplifies the fat loss benefits of fasted training, reduces muscle protein loss, and raises energy levels and sharpens focus.

Not only that, but we created Forge to work synergistically with our fat burner Phoenix and pre-workout drink Pulse.

When taken together, these three supplements are a powerful fat loss “stack” that helps you lose fat as quickly, healthily, and enjoyably as possible.

So, let’s take a closer look at Forge’s formulation and see how it works.

Yohimbine

Yohimbine is a naturally occurring substance called an alkaloid, which is a bitter-tasting compound that can cause various types of chemical reactions in the body.

It’s found naturally in several types of plants native to central and western Africa, including the bark of the yohimbe tree.

Yohimbine stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, thus activating the body’s “fight or flight” response. [6]

This causes chemicals called catecholamines to be released into your bloodstream (adrenaline and noradrenaline, mainly), which can bind to fat cells via receptors known as adrenergic receptors and initiate fat burning.

You can think of this as a lock-and-key-like mechanism whereby catecholamines act as “keys” that fit into the fat cell’s receptors (“locks”) and trigger the release of stored energy.

This is why studies show that yohimbine accelerates fat loss, but how it does so is a little complicated. [7]

Many people assume yohimbine simply speeds up your metabolism and suppresses your appetite like other natural stimulants, including caffeine and synephrine.

Well, yohimbine is a mild stimulant and can help suppress appetite, but there’s more to its fat-burning properties. [8]

We recall fat cells have receptors for catecholamines and the primary catecholamines involved in fat burning are adrenaline and noradrenaline.

Well, fat cells actually have two types of receptors for these chemicals:[9]

  1. Alpha receptors

  2. Beta receptors

And these receptors operate very differently.

The physiology is quite complex, but what you need to know is when catecholamines bind to beta receptors, fat cells mobilize for burning. When the chemicals bind to alpha receptors, however, the cells don’t mobilize.

That is, in terms of fat loss, beta receptors are the heroes and alpha receptors are the villains.

Furthermore, some adipose tissue (fat) in the body contains higher levels of alpha receptors than others, which makes it more resistant to mobilization than other fat deposits.[10]

This is the “stubborn fat” people complain about and it helps explain why some fat stores can be so hard to lose, like the last couple pounds in your lower abs (most guys) or hips and thighs (most gals).

Enter yohimbine.

This sneaky little molecule has a high affinity for alpha receptors, which means it binds to them more easily than beta receptors.[11]

Moreover, once yohimbine has bound with a fat cell’s alpha receptor, it turns it off, so to speak, which allows more catecholamines in your blood to bind to beta receptors instead.

In other words, yohimbine prevents your fat cells’ alpha receptors from preventing fat loss.

And as the fat deposits generally highest in alpha receptors are the “hard-to-lose” bits that we want to eliminate most, yohimbine helps you lose this fat in particular faster.[12]

This is why it’s often sold as a way to help with “targeted fat loss,” which, in this case, is a fairly accurate statement.

It should also be noted that research shows that yohimbine reduces fat mass without affecting lean mass, which is important for optimizing body composition.[13]

It may also improve exercise performance by staving off physical fatigue, which is a welcome bonus given the fact that a calorie deficit can reduce workout performance.[14]

There’s a slight catch with yohimbine, though.

Elevated insulin levels completely negate its weight-loss effects. [15]

That means that if you want to reap its fat loss benefits, you want to use yohimbine only when you’re in a fasted state.[16]

It also seems to be particularly effective when combined with exercise, which makes sense given the fact that exercise greatly increases catecholamine levels. [17][18]

The clinically effective dose of yohimbine is between 0.1 and 0.2 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.

Forge contains 10 milligrams of yohimbine per serving.

We chose this dose per serving of Forge and just 2.5 milligrams per pill to allow for maximum flexibility in dosing, as optimal intake depends on body weight.

This also allows for maximum safety.

While yohimbine is generally well tolerated in lower (but still effective) doses, overdosing can cause various negative side effects, including agitation, anxiety, hypertension, and tachycardia.[19]

This is why people with anxiety and panic orders are not advised to take yohimbine.

So, for example, a clinically effective dose of yohimbine for a 150-pound woman would be 7 to 13 milligrams, and one serving of Forge (4 pills) fits nicely in the middle.

Furthermore, if she feels good at this dose, she could add an additional capsule to each dosage and reach the top of the clinically effective range.

A clinically effective dosage for a 200-pound man, however, is higher: 9 to 18 milligrams.

In this case, he could start with four pills per dosage to assess tolerance and move up to six to seven for the maximum dose for his body weight.

β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate

β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate, also known as HMB, is a substance formed when your body metabolizes the amino acid leucine, which is an amino acid that directly stimulates protein synthesis. [20]

HMB is often sold as a muscle-building aid, but the research purported to demonstrate these benefits is shaky at best. [21]

Thus, we aren’t comfortable making any claims about muscle growth.

Well-designed studies do show that HMB is an effective anti-catabolic agent, however. [22]

That is, it’s good at reducing muscle breakdown rates, which can help you recover faster from your workouts and experience less muscle soreness.

This also makes HMB perfect for use with fasted training because its anti-catabolic effects can counter the increased muscle breakdown rates that occur when exercising in a fasted state.

In this way, HMB help you reap all the fat loss benefits of fasted training with fewer problems related to muscle loss.

It’s also worth noting that HMB is superior to leucine in suppressing muscle breakdown. [23]

This means it’s also more effective than BCAA supplements because they rely on leucine for their anti-catabolic effects (isoleucine and valine are very weak in this regard). [24][25]

The clinically effective dose of HMB is between 2 and 3 grams.

Forge contains 2.5 grams of HMB per serving.

CDP-Choline

CDP-choline, also known as citicoline, is a chemical that occurs naturally in the brain and increases levels of another chemical called phosphatidylcholine, which is vital for brain function.

Research shows that supplementation with CDP-choline improves attentional focus. [26]

Most people find fasted training more mentally draining than fed training, and CDP-choline can help counteract this.

For attentional purposes, the clinically effective dose of CDP-choline is between 250 and 500 milligrams.

Forge contains 250 milligrams of CDP-Choline per serving.

How to Get the Most Out of Forge

As you know, after eating food, insulin levels remain elevated for several hours while your body processes and absorbs nutrients.

The more food you eat, the more insulin your body produces and the longer it takes to return to a fasted state. What you eat affects this as well.

For example, research shows that a scoop of whey protein elevates insulin levels for between two and two and a half hours. [27] A larger mixed meal of protein, carbohydrate, and fat, however, can raise insulin levels for five or more hours. [28]

This is why many people prefer to do their fasted training first thing in the morning, before eating breakfast.

This ensures insulin levels are at baseline, and interestingly, research shows that fat oxidation rates are at their highest after six or more hours without food. [29]

If you can’t train first thing in the morning, however, you can still benefit from Forge.

You just need to make sure you’re in a fasted state when you take it, and that means you need to plan your meals accordingly.

For example, you could eat a light breakfast or lunch consisting of 30 to 40 grams of protein and the same or less carbohydrate and then train four to five hours later. This would give your body plenty of time to finish processing the food and reduce insulin levels.

Many people also use this strategy to train in a fasted state twice per day—once in the morning and once later in the day or early evening.

Where’s the Caffeine?

While Forge is a potent fat burner by itself, it works synergistically with caffeine yet doesn’t contain any.

Why?

Well, we surveyed thousands of our customers and followers and found that most people prefer to get their caffeine from other sources such as coffee or a pre-workout drink like Pulse.

It made sense, then, to leave caffeine out of Forge.

The Bottom Line

Forge is a fat burner that helps you lose fat—and “stubborn” fat in particular—faster, preserve muscle, and maintain training intensity and mental sharpness.

Yes, “stubborn” fat is a very real phenomenon, and while it ultimately yields to regular exercise and proper diet, it can take its sweet, sweet time.

There aren’t many things you can do to speed this process up, either, but there’s one strategy you should know about:

Fasted exercise with yohimbine supplementation.

That’s why we created Forge, which contains yohimbine along with two other ingredients that help preserve lean mass and workout quality while dieting (HMB and CDP-choline).

The reason it’s so effective is simple:

Every ingredient is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research and is included at clinically effective levels.

That means the ingredients and doses in Forge are based on published scientific research demonstrating real benefits, not the restrictions of razor-thin production budgets or gluttonous profit margins.

So, if you want to lose fat faster—and especially belly, hip, and thigh fat—while also maintaining lean mass and workout performance . . . you want to try Forge today.

You won’t be disappointed.

In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Forge, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or return necessary.

You really can’t lose, so order now and get ready to enjoy more fat loss, and stubborn fat loss in particular, as well as more energy and focus during your workouts.
