short term insulin use?
I have used insulin once before for about twenty five days or so with dnp (to keep fat gain down).... I am currently running test prop 100mg eod and tren 100mg ed... and i am going to run dnp for about ten days at 400mg ed and was wondering about throwing in some insulin... i have a humalog pen ... just curious on thoughts on this subject... Will the insulin give me a great spike in strength and gains in the short ten days or is it pointless?

So nobody knows if using slin for a quick ten days will help yield any better results?

also,you'd be better served to run your prop ED instead of EOD

Well, i read a few pages in a book regarding running dnp with slin and it was in favor of it but... wanted to ask if anyone has done that before. But the main question is... can i run the slin for just that short amount of time about 14 days or so... will that result in quality gains or is it not long enough?

Doesn't DNP make you hotter the more carbs you eat? Sounds like DNP + slin is a recipe for disaster. Can't take in enough carbs because you will raise your core temprature too high and die, but if you don't take in the carbs, you'll go hypo and die. Seems like a pretty bad situation to put yourself in. But you say you've done it before so you know what to expect I guess.
Also, why would you use insulin to prevent fat gain? Especially while taking DNP? Once all your glycogen stores are full, insulin will force the deposition of fat and will actually block the breakdown of adipose tissue.
I'd be interested to hear the reasoning that the author of the book you read uses to favor DNP and insulin.
I've never taken DNP, and only done minimal research on its action in the body. I'm not sure how it actually effects the action of the insulin, but 10 days on insulin seems kind of short, so unless DNP hugely amplifies the action of the insulin, which I don't believe it would, it would seem to be a waste to me.
This is just a lot of supposition on my part from the minimal research I did on DNP several years ago and what I know of insulin, so bump for someone with actual experience.
