Albany- Trainers at Tony's Gym say they do sell supplements, but none of their products contain ephedra or any other stimulant.

In fact they say you don't need to use a stimulant to burn fat or add muscle mass, but agree products like ephedra should contain warning labels.

Wilkerson says he believes ephedra can be a good weight loss product but its when people abuse it that it becomes dangerous.

If the F.D.A. decides to add labels to the product, they will warn users that the pills can cause heart attacks, stroke, or even death.
