    I have a really nasty metabolism, which means really slow. That means he's not eating more than he needs, hes eating healthy, but he puts on weight, and is in a miserable physical condition. I once knew a girl that had a extremely speedy metabolism (she was skinny and lost weight even if she ate tons of food). She finally decided to get something to slow her metabolism and that way she got her problem under control.

    I was wondering if there is anything that works the other way (increases the metabolism). Should swim try clenbuterol???

    First of all You needs to get checked out by a doctor: Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is a common cause of weight gain with a normal/reduced food intake.

    From what she can recall:

    Clenbuterol is a B adrenergic agonist, primarily used as a bronchodilator. It also increases blood pressure, oxygen transportation and acts as a CNS stimulant.

    It is thermogenic and reduces the rate at which glycogen is stored by the body and increases fat and protein utilisation.

    She knows it is banned by the IOC as a performance enhancing drug.

    She also vaguely remembers some studies linking it to cardiomyopathy (stiffening of the heart muscle) but would have to dig for those.

    AnyYou with any more info?
