    I am totally new to cycling, my husband used to be a semi professional cyclist many moons ago... anyway, I am learning, and enjoying it very much.. I just have one question, can any one tell me if drinking Aminoacid supplements is a good idea - I am drinking Aminoliq - fat burner. Yes I do want to burn all the fat in my thighs :p
    Is it beneficial, is it worth for my body? it works great for my skin...

    You can get all of the amino acids you need from your food, there are essential and non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cant be made by the body and are only available from food. Vegetarians and Vegans can struggle to consume the full range of amino acids, but can easily get around the problem by eating a number of sources of protein.

    As long as you are eating a balanced diet then you should find no benefit from the extra protein. To lose the body fat just eat less Kcals than you expend.
