    Question cytomel or clen

    Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell me if clen is any better than cytomel . I have taken cytomel and it really didn't do anything for me. I have been thinking about taking clen but I heard that it was basically the same as cytomel and I don't want to waste my money if it is not going to do anything for me. What I am needing is to shed some body fat (alot) and really firm and tone up with muscle. If anyone can give me their opinion I will really appreciate it.

    To be honest I can't remember who told me that. They just didn't have anything good to say about either one of them. Can you give me your input on them?

    I wouldn't take t3 unless i was on other AS and even then, only if i was getting ready for a show

    Clen can (and will) help a little with the bf but only if your diet and training are solid

    Thanks for the info. I think I will just stick with the ECA and try to get a little more strict on my diet and workouts.

    t3 is the active thyroid hormone. it has 3 iodine complexes, one less than the inactive t4. t3 is very very powerful for stripping away fat and muscle. you may not care about losing muscle, but t3 causes a nasty rebound when you're off because the body's own production of t4 and enzymes to comvert t4 to t3 is drastically reduced for a long period of time, so you will gain fat pretty uncontrollably for a while post t3 cycle.

    when mrs. evil used t3+anavar she had great fat loss results, but after the cycle was done with proper tapering, she ended up with more fat than she started with and she was eating less calories too. there was nothing she could do.

    clen is a synthetic chemical that stimulates the beta (adrenaline)receptors. this fat loss is much milder, but there is very little rebound. clen can also suppress your appetite as well, slightly more than ECA from my experiences.

    with all these chemicals available, the most effective way to lose fat is a well planned diet and exercise program and most of all, discipline and desire.

    Thanks for the info Dr. Evil. I did gain weight after I got off of the cytomel now I am trying to get it off. I just hope that I didn't screw anything up and will never be able to get it off. But I guess all I can do is try my hardest. Thanks again for the input. I will stay away from it.

    don't worry you didn't do any permanent damage. you just made it a little tougher on yourself temporarily. your thyroid and metabolism should restore itself in time. good luck.

    mrs. evil was taking 12.5mcg of cynomel at her peak. she started at a quater of a 25mcg tab/day, so ~6-7mcg/day. the anavar was a 6 week cycle, so the cynomel must have been around 6 weeks as well.

    Clen and T3 both act to raise the metabolism and burn fat, but do so in different ways.

    Neither will do much unless you have the rest of your house in order.

    First you need a good diet & cardio combo. Once you have that down and you start losing weight, then start Clen to help speed up the process.

    Cycling Clen for 2 weeks then ECA for two weeks is a popular fat-burning cycle.
