    I'm 52 (how the [email protected] did that happen??), 5'7" and roughly 180lbs of fat a** right now. This came along at the perfect time for me.

    @Charger69, are we still doing the 'phrase of the day'? I think that was mentioned regarding scale pics.

    Note that I'm not saying 'safe word', that's for something else entirely...

    I've actually lost a lot of weight. In December, I was mid cycle and looking great but got some virus and lost 25lbs. Haven't been able to work out since then with the whole covid thing. Not sure when the gyms will open but I'm getting into some home stuff and losing some flab is definitely going in the right direction. I could probably drop down to 185-190 without compromising much muscle, maybe lower.
    -
    I'll post pics before the day is out tomorrow. There aren't any good mirrors where I am and my camera stand is in storage, far away.

    Just north of the Franklin city limits. Still hiding from Covid, job in Houston starts in October and I don't want to get sick and lose what may be the best opportunity for a great life.
    -
    Yeah, it's real nice here. I'm gonna try to go hiking daily. I'm at about 2300 ft, that mountain has gotta be another 1000, I'm guessing.
    -
    There sure is a lot of people looking for homes around here. Must be due to the work-from-home-thing that people are now realizing the city actually kind of sucks. I'd imagine real estate in some areas is going way up while in others, hopefully Houston, it's going down. ...might end up defunding the police after all, lesser taxes and all. I'm glad Houston is a concealed carry state.
    -
    Anyhow, hopefully I'll have pics of the area, wildlife and stuff, in my regular posts.

    Guys I was thinking about a phrase, but I think everyone is honest enough and you really arenít winning any money. LOL.
    I tricked you all, thinking there was money to be made.

    Letís get some more people in this!!! Itís not too late.

    Letís hear what everyoneís strategy is for the weight loss. Is it to reach a specific weight or just lose as much as you can.

    Are you tracking macros? Or just going off of feel?
    Are you taking any AAS or other meds to lose weight, or just cardio and diet.

    I’m going to go with intermediate fasting, lots of cardio and I’m almost thinking about falling for a keto pill. If anything the caffeine will help me that’s in the pills, I’m just cheap nowadays. I want all my fat gone.......period.

    Have you considered eca? For the ephedrine you can buy bronkaid at most pharmacys. I like it because it curbs my appetite, and I don't get the shakes as bad as I do with clen

    Weight pic from this morning for verification.

    Note that I do not trust the actual body fat percentage on this scale. Still, it does read fairly consistently over time so while I can't say that the number is right overall, it does act as a relative gauge of progress.

    I would worried about sleep, I don’t sleep well and I just got it going pretty decently. Does eca affect your sleep at all?

    Mine said the same thing body fat wise but I always had issues with this type of system, I’m 5’7 just under 200 so it always says I have high bf, definitely the scale

    Someone brought a $5000 tester into my gym one time and they couldn’t get me right, I was 5’7, 215 pounds ripped and IT would say I had like 17% body fat. The guy kept changing all the mathematics and stuff, he came up to me like three times well now I got your body fat down to like 8.2%, he was so full of shit.

    It doesn't for me, but I've heard of it causing issues with some people. I would definitely take it early in the morning if you try it, and start with breaking the ephedrine in half

    Just don't take it too late in the day. I like ECA for more of pre-workout and phentermine more for weight loss but to each their own. I used to LOVE clen , but last time I tried it (a few years ago, I got horrible sides for the first time) Whatever route you go, just take it 1st thing in the morning. It's wore off by the end of the day. If for some reason, you haven't come down. Try reading something non-stimulating that will absolutely but you sleep. Might I suggest the following........

    BG- I have read that the aspirin really doesnít have any effect unless you are obese. I used to just use an EC stack...... however these are stimulants and should be taken caringly. .....:::..... Says the old man that suffered afib.
    You want to get really hopped up... T3, clen , EPhedrine, and caffeine. Almost guaranteed a trip to the ER. LOL

    Me too and I had a bad pre-workout issue, it probably did more damage then all the coke I did when I was 20 hahahaha Now I drink a RedBull in the morning I dont sleep at night.
    So I base my ECA stacks off the old school Ripped Fuel and Xenadrine from the late 90's/early 2000's before the ban. The glory days of thermogenics for me. These were amazing and the last OTC weight loss supplements that actually worked for people that didn't simultaneously make you shit your pants. This was around the same time as mini-thins for those of you that remember those. Same principals, different markets.

    Ephedrine (Pseudoephedrine) 20-25mg. *In the US you can buy these behind the counter without a prescription, at least in my state. They will take your ID and run a check to make sure you're not buying more than a couple of boxes a month. This is in an effort to make sure you're not using it to compound and manufacture meth. You can get it at Walgreens in either Sudafed or Primatene. The Primatene comes in 12.5mg doses, so this may be best for you to begin with. If buying it in the Sudafed version, make sure to buy the immediate release and not the extended-release. Theoretically, the extended-release (12hr) would work better for dieting, but I can't feel a damn thing on it as opposed to the immediate release that ruins my appetite (yay!) and fires me up. The Sudafed is tiny red pills that come in 30mg of active ingredient pseudoephedrine I think (it's been a long time since I've got them). Now I get Mucinex for Colds, which is another you can use that uses ephedrine, but it's significantly more expensive. If you go with Mucinex, it comes in many forms, you want Mucinex D, I think. And this is a good general rule for all of these cold medicines. Always make sure it's the behind the counter stuff because they've all come out with shitty versions with ingredients that sound like ephedrine, but in no way work the same. Just go to the pharmacy, and tell them "I'd like some Sudafed or Primatene, the good stuff, the bronchodilator, with the ephedrine please - the behind the counter stuff". They'll know what you want. I'm serious. That's how I ask for it. This is at the same place I get my prescription narcotics from and nobody bats an eye as long as I'm not trying to buy 50 boxes a month.

    ***Keep in mind that Ephedrine is similar to Clen in the sense that they both fairly quickly down-regulate beta2 receptors so 2 weeks on 2 weeks off protocol is necessary IF you're dosing it throughout the day in order to upregulate b2 receptors and keep it effective (though some will argue you can go longer). If you're using it as a preworkout, I don't think this is necessary. Whereas Clen is an exclusive b2 agonist, ephedrine stimulates both alpha and beta. Because of its effects on alpha, I'm not sure if running ketotifen would upregulate as needed - I'm thinking it would only upregulate b2 receptors and do nothing for alpha, but my research in this area is about 12 years old and my understanding of even simple pathophysiology was seriously lacking back then so you may want to dig a bit deeper if you're thinking about going that route. I'd probably just stick to 2 on 2 off.

    Caffeine - 100-250mg - Dose is your call. I get Jet Alert Brand from Walmart. It's dirt cheap - something like 2 bucks a bottle and has a ton of pills in it. I think it's dosed at 200-250mg, but it's perfed and easy to split. I take the whole thing.

    Aspirin - 81mg - I never was super clear as to the reason for this. I mean, it's obviously to thin your blood. I was just never sure if it was as a safety precaution or to provide a synergistic role. Either way, take it for the safety profile as it only makes sense that if you're increasing your cardiac output that you would want your blood a bit thinner in case of clots and...blah blah blah.

    When I do mine I run 25/250/81 or 20/200/81 depending on what brand of products I have. I'd start lower for you since, like with all things in this world, you want to see how you respond first. (See, all you new people reading this. Same advise applies to even the most seasoned vets - start low and increase the dose after learning your body response) We like you here and would rather your heart not blow up.

    If you're wanting to get serious about weight loss though. I'll tell you what you need to do. I've lost 40lbs in just over 2 months now. You'll need a prescription because I don't know of any UGL sources that sell it, but assuming you have no preexisting conditions that would otherwise exclude you from the meds and your BMI is over 27% (which for most of us that carry muscle, it is) then you'll qualify. Anyway, It's phentermine and Topamax. The phentermine is a stimulant and Topamax is an anticonvulsant that is used to treat seizures and migraines; however, FDA has given the approval to be used in a combination med along with phentermine for weight loss and people are getting insane results. But you don't want the combination med. I mean, you do. But you want them separate so you can dose it your way - similar to buying your test and tren separate instead of as a 100/100 combo. Anyway, I can talk more about that later if you care to know more.

    I'm not real happy about my pics either so I'm just gonna post them at the end. Funny how I see myself in the mirror and think, whatever, but then in photos I'm like "damn, I'm fat again."

    I'm still on TRT with no extra except some CJC1295/Ipam mix that I kept in the fridge since my Nov/Dec interrupted cycle, it's dated January but it's never left the fridge.

    -For cardio, I'm running three times a week, doing some hiking.

    -With no access to gym, I had an over the door pullup bar, pushups, core stuff... However, I moved into a new place and its a prefab so no pullup bar.

    -Food, just gonna apply some discipline and not worry about counting to much.

    ...I don't feel well equipped but I'm gonna do what I can.

    The 81mg of aspirin was dropped later. It turned out that itís positive effect on body composition only shows up in the stack when itís used by morbidly people with stupid high bodyfats (30+%). I have a feeling that this has to do with how systemically inflamed and fucked up they are. Kinda how Ibuprofen has shown positive effects on MPS in the elderly (65+), but shit tanks it in healthy, trained individuals.
    Itís one of those wonky things where population specificity is important. That said, the aspirin isnít blunting to the same degree as ibuprofen, and if someoneís running gear, itís a solid addition anyway
