    Clen 1st time user. Dropping weight fast

    I'm 5'8
    Beginning day 6 of Clen . Days 1-3 were 40mcg, days 4-today 80mcg.
    Started around 168.0 lbs (13.5%-14.0% fat)
    Currently 161.4 (Around 12.5%)
    Strength training 3 days per week - push/pull/legs.
    Strength appears to be keeping up in the gym, in fact certain lifts it I can lift a hair more, weird.
    Body composition is improving, according to the mirror

    Is it normal to shed weight this fast? I've been eating only in a 500-700 caloric deficit. (TDEE around 2700, eating around 2000/2100)
    Drinking 2 gallons of water per day.

    I daubt 5 days of clen made you loose that much, especially the first 3 being only 40 mcg. Probably a combination of the clen, better diet and the mental effect making you work out harder. Regardless, I'm sure you'll take it!

    3,500 calorie deficit equals 1 pound of fat loss. So if you are in a 500-700 deficit, that should equal 1-1 1/2 pounds a week, anything more than that is water, and or muscle. I wouldn't think clen , at its highest doses would make you burn more than one pound extra of fat a week

    I appreciate the response.
    Yeah, the weight slowed down (or up however you want to look at it) this AM to 161.8lb
    My diet prior to this was in a large to rather large surplus, carbs of course.
    Likely a lot of water coming off.
    Feels like now the true fat loss begins, lets see what this clean and a good diet combo can do

    From what i researched, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off.
    With how im responding to it now, hoping one more 2 week cycle and we're good. Going to the 10% range.
