While the rest of the country ponders how to lose weight, Hollywood came up with its own solution. In la-la land, when it comes to a quick fat loss, Clenbuterol [also known as "Clen"] is the latest craze.
Technically, Clenbuterol is not a steroid. It is, however, a drug commonly prescribed to treat respiratory problems in horses. In higher than therapeutic doses, it has an ability to induce muscle grows, which is why it has also been used [illegally] in livestock.
In humans, Clenbuterol can promote eye-popping fat loss. Similar to ephedrine, Clen [unlike ephedrine] does not interfere with sleep, and it stays in your system longer.
It does have similar [to ephedrine] side effects; it could cause jitteriness, accelerated heart rate, elevated blood pressure and a nasty headache.
Still, in bodybuilding and other sports, it has been a popular drug for weight loss – - which is hardly surprising. But according to Star magazine, Clenbuterol has been discovered by Hollywood – - great, all we need now is another weigh loss fad.
Where do they get Clenbuterol? It is illegally imported from Mexico, Canada and it is illegally sold on some Internet sites.
In the case of some starlets, their stylists give it to them. [...] Insiders even refer to one well-known, Clen-dispensing celeb stylist as a “horse”, and her stable of young, beautiful movie and- TV-star clients as “mares!”
The trainers here laugh themselves silly listening to celebrities talk about their ‘diets’. [...] While Clen may be able to carve out near-skeletal, couture-perfect proportions in a flash, it also has repercussions!
Since Clen builds up quickly in the body [...] after three to four weeks, it can have the opposite effect and users can gain weight!
That could be why so many Hollywood’s skinnies seem to gain back the pounds as fast as they lose them – before starting the dangerous cycle again and again! – - according to Star.
Please keep in mind, Clenbuterol is illegal and dangerous for humans. In my opinion, its weight loss and fat loss effects are overrated. The so-called Hollywood’s latest diet pill [Clen] is just a fad, which I hope will pass quickly.
