Welcome! Higher carb/lower carb, doesn’t matter, what matters most is calories in calories out. If you’re in a deficit and trying to lose fat, they’ll help. Ultimately your training and nutrition have to support fat loss and you must be consistent. Cumulatively, over time, if you’re very consistent, you’ll get leaner with HOT ROX than without them. I added them in 4 weeks before my last contest when calories were already low, also implementing the morning fasted cardio, and it really turbo charged things. I’m taking them again now preparing for my next show in 6 weeks, they’re definitely getting me down to where I need to be.
One thing to possibly keep in mind, is the maximum effects of yohimbine can be inhibited by insulin. So, I wouldn’t recommend having Hot Rox then eating a bagel right away. I take them first thing in the morning, then do my 20-30 minutes of fasted low intensity cardio, then eat breakfast which has carbs, about 30g. I also take them in the afternoon, take a 30min slow walk, then have my pre workout meal which has 70g carbs. So again, it’s not as much the macro balance as whether or not you’re in a overall caloric deficit.
