I'm on week 6 of my deca /test cycle......I've had great gains so far (7 kg, no fat, very little water....) .I'll be throwing in some t3 for the last 4 weeks.Max will be 100 mcg.I'm at around 14% BF right now.How many digits of bf do you think I could lose.My diet is in chek.........the question is related to the power of t3 - is it a magic pill or what?

It can be if you monitor your temp to make sure your in the optimal metabolic range!...Or to make sure that it's stimulating an not inhibiting your fat loss!

How could it inhibit my fat loss?

Under normal circumstances, a person takes t4 and the body does the normal conversion to t3 (all things working well). By taking t4 there is less down regulation of the HPT axis because the end product (t3) can be regulated during the conversion. If you take straight t3 your taking the end product, which can feed back on the HPT axis very quickly. T3 should only be taken for 5-7 days then off for 5 days with constant monitoring of body temp. Flooding the blood with t3 sends a very fast signal to the HPT to stop endogeous production. A drop of more than 1.0 deg from one day to the next is a hard sign that the t3 the person is taking is now working as an inhibitor, not a stimulator.

You can do 5/40/55 or the older version of 10/40/50...just keep an eye on your BMR!
I use to run thyroids that way at one time!...but I don't anymore, atleast not for a couple of years now!

Thanks for the advice.....I wasn't trying to be a smartass!So do you think a decrease of 4 % would be possible?
