These both sound like broscience/weight loss myths to me. I have heard a little bit about cinnamon, but more just because it's fiber dense when eaten in large amounts and can add a kind of sweetness to yogurts and oatmeal without adding sugar
I'm 5'8" stinks being shorter
Summer 2011- 215 lbs. Peak weight
Christmas 2011- 200 lbs
Start of summer 2012- 170 lbs
September 2012- Made my goal of competing at feather weight for Bjj (under 149 with a little water cut)
Now I'm just trying to maintain around 152ish to leave me in easy cutting range. Also trying to relax and eat more like a normal person now, balancing enjoying life and staying healthy.
