Ran out of l-carnitine

 

Didn't want to have too long without while online place ships

 

Went to GNC, was offered all kinds of sweet sales and shit if I bought a gold card, tried to be nice but they are so damn persistent in those places. Ended with a slightly raised voice from me and awkward silence as I got rung up.

 

I hate GNC. So much.

OP, how do you use L-Carnitine? Is it part of a weight loss stack?

This. This exactly. They must hire former drug dealers with the way they push products in those stores.

I started using it like 18 months ago for weight loss and it has since become a staple of sorts. I'll down a few grams anytime I eat a bunch of carbs. I might've been experimenting with injectable l-car for a period, and it might've yielded really awesome results, but it also might've hurt like fucking hell and wasn't cheap either.

 

Went back to the oral route for the time being

Depends on the particular store. They get paid commission so they are just doing their jobs. Ain't nothing wrong with wanting to make more money.

Interesting. I always saw this stuff recommended for fat loss stacks but I've never actually tried. The dosing around carbs, interests me though, thanks for sharing!

Check out dats forum regarding the use of carnitind for endurance and fat loss. It's pretty interesting and useful

If I must resort to buying in stores I will go to vitamin shoppe. Not pushy at all for the couple I've been to around here. I avoid gnc like the plague. I really do like there mass gainer protonz though, that shit is amazing. Too bad I can't go in there without some 16 year old kid that weighs 115 lbs telling me what I need to get big. :facepalm:

I used to frequent a gnc because I had a working arrangement w the store manager. He realized it was better to sell me 4 tubs of protein for 10-15% margin than 0 at 30% lol. I was willing to pay a small premium so I didn't have to wait for shipping.

Since then, I've had one tell me that all the stuff online is old and expired and that's why it's cheap. Or that it will be settled and nasty. Or they tell me that it's on sale...to which I usually reply that I can buy two online for the price of one in store lol.

Since then, I've had one GNC guy tell me that you can use Trident Gum as a sure-fire birth control and that reposting things that other people posted on other forums, and then pretending that stuff is actually about you - is all OK. The same guy also asked me if I could help him change a tire. The weird part, then he asked me if I could help him dress up as a fireman for Halloween.


You know, some of this sounds familiar. You don't suppose ...

I don't know what a gnc store or guy is, pretty sure a supplement shop in y'all country.
So why don't you do what us Aussies do when we get hassled in a shop by pushy sales people..........and this is apart from quick kidney punches which is usually the norm lol


Scream really loudly and if sale dude..............'did you just touch my penis, did you just touch my penis, why did you touch my penis? I said you can only touch my children's penis if you give me this protein tub for free!"

Scream really loudly and if sale Dudette.................."OK then, I'll try your tub of protein after you try my tub of protein stick that's just about to hit your lips! Hit the floor, showering time is here!'

Sheesh Mericano's, cmon get on the program!

My girlfriend went to GNC not too long ago...charged her over $100 for CLA, green bean coffee pills, and hydroxycut and they charged her for a gold membership without her consent. 

 

Dang, I'd be goin back in and getting the money back!

There is when it comes down to me being hassled while in their facility, or not being hassled. This also plays into the fact that this was my last choice regarding supp purchases. Was in a tight spot so I took the dive.
