    are these catabolics?

    just got 2 questions

    Does Ephedrin have a catabolic effect on muscles?

    Does Clen have a catabolic effect on muscles?

    No neither do.

    ****edit
    The only way I see it being catabolic is if it suppresses your appetite enough to make you drop you calories so low that it put you in a catabolic state..... Otherwise no

    Ephedren can speed up the catabolic process if you are not takin in enough calories.

    So would all agree that Clen is a better choice to keep from putting myself into a catabolic state?

    Also which has a greater effect on heart rate and body heat increase between ephedrine and clen?

    Neither will make you or keep you from becomming catabolic.

    I would use both...... Clen 2 weeks and ECA the other 2 weeks for a total of 8 weeks.

    Yes..they do...however they effect your overall system in a catabolic manner....not necessarily directed specifically at your muscle tissue. Sups that drive adrenaline, such as ephedra, caffine, etc...have a catabolic effect on your endocrine systen in general...

    Just coming back to that comment about calories for a sec.

    I am currently unemployed but i return to my job in February. So im able to eat like a madman at the moment, but when i go back to my job there isnt much time to eat so i was wondering...
    Im hoping to weigh 175-180lbs (id say im a bit of a hard gainer)before i go back to work, so whats the minimum calories, protein and Carbs i would need each day in order to keep the muscle iv put on?

    Cheers
    Dave

    ECA is suspose to speed up your metablism by 2-3%. And clen speeds it up 10%. I remember reading this somewhere but I dont remember where and this info could be outdated.

    I take the calories from what I was eatting in my cycle and add another 500 to them durring PCT and keep them there for about another 3 weeks after my PCT.

    Everyone is different........... You need to find out what your maintence calories will be to stay at that weight.

    But when I'm not on a cycle and not cutting I like to keep Proteins/Carbs/Fats at
    50/30/20 % again this is what works for me and you need to find what works best for you

    im taking IXEL(Milnacipran) which is a new SNRI.
    much like effexor it as an influence on noradrenaline.
    is it like the adrenaline, does it have a catabolic effect on fat or muscles?
