Carnitine perhaps?

Carnitine may also help you oxidize your fat ass...

The effect of l-carnitine on fat oxidation

"increased dietary fat oxidation in slightly overweight subjects was not accompanied by protein catabolism."

That's the good news. This too:

"Essentially, L-carnitine transports the chains of fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix, thus allowing the cells to break down fat and get energy from the stored fat reserves." 1

This could be in part why people who go on a paleo diet lose fat.  Not only is the insulin response improved, but with all that extra carnitine, the fatty acids are being burned more efficiently.
