    Gained a shit ton of fat on T3??

    Haven't posted any ?'s on here in awhile but i'm pretty curious as to i can't find any real answers over the web. About 2 weeks ago I was sitting pretty lean (for me) I'd say around 10% bf.. Anyway, I decided to throw T-3 in the mix after being on Tren and sust for about 5 weeks. I started at 25mcg a day for the first week and bumped it to 50mcg (split in two doses) the second week. Well i'm on day 15 and I look like shit! wtf? I thought at first it might be some possible water retention so I cut out carbs for 4 days and only went back on them for leg day..But nothing! I'm up 9lbs in 2 weeks and it looks like all fat to me??? Any possible explanations???

    It's a UGL but i'm good friends with the guy and everything else he has is amazing. I actually started carb cycling and even started fasted morning cardio!! I was really trying to take it to the next level. I "felt" a bit warmer but nothing crazy. I never measured though. Everymorning I woke up literally starving though! Like I hadn't eaten in days.. I would slam 50g of whey and feel a lot better..idk

    When you start your carb cycles and you sure you have it down to a T?

    It can do more harm than good if not utilised correctly, this thread may be better placed in nutrition section........

    Yea i'm very familiar with cycling carbs, i've done it several times always with good success. I have a thermometer I can do it tomorrow. I was actually thinking of jumping off the t-3 and maybe going to DNP ..I've ran DNP twice in the past and it's incredible what it can do. I'll just be out of commission for 2 weeks bc I can't move on it lol. I was just more concerned with the T-3 bc I was wondering if it could mean I have some underlying thyroid issue?

    Yea arimidex ED... I was taking .5 letro ED but I felt like it was too strong. Besides, I have never really had a problem with water retention except maybe my first cycle.

    That's usually why I like to carb cycle while on a "cutter" bc of how much water carbs will make you retain. I think it's like 4oz for every gram! I also keep sodium intake real low, I might overdue it with my hot sauce in the morning but that's about it lol

    Yea, I mean I feel like i have all the classic sides from t-3 except it REALLY looks like fat! I'll switch back to letro tomorrow and maybe run 4-5 days of lasiks and see if that helps

    Just an update. I went to see a friend of mine who is a DR. and he says he's 99% sure the bloat is from the sust and my a.i's are no good. He did send me to get bloodwork done but he said the t-3 would not be responsible for any weight gain..
