    My first week went without a hitch and I can start feeling heat increasing in my body somewhat due to the Trenbolone . Training at a very (for me) high level at the moment. Three boot camps/week. Five days of lifting. Five days of cardio. One day of Crossfit. I have built this up over almost two months now so it's not feeling too much, it feels just right. Energy levels are great, food intake is going well. It really could not be better at this time!

    Week 1 stats:
    83.7 kg or 184.5 lb

    My second week went as expected, meaning, it was pretty darn perfect I am eating clean but if my macros allow it I'll enjoy an ice cream with my daughter in the South Indian summer we are currently experiencing. Strength is up, fat is down, not sure there is much more one can ask for?

    Week 2 stats:
    82.7 kg
    or 182.3 lb

    Fat loss is slowing down somewhat this week but nothing to the extent that I am willing to change my food intake as of yet. Had about 4h less of training last week also due to circumstances but I am on schedule again this week.

    Week 3 stats:
    82.1 kg or 180.9 lb

    I bet those 4 hours you didn't train was the difference

    Keep up the hard work bud!

    Fat loss stalled this week but of course, I enjoyed an easter dinner with family and friends. Not much else to say about it really. I weighed in at exactly the same so going to push it one more week before I modify anything. Should the weight be the same next week I'll modify accordingly but it will never ever be anything too drastic. Still got six months to go.

    Week 4 stats:
    82.1 kg or 180.9 lb

    Reflection:

    On these forums and in general when you search for how to start dieting people will follow the same sheep-like behavior. Find your TDEE, deduct 500kcal, lose weight at a rate of about 1lb/week. Not only is this based on the misconception that by dropping 3,500kcal/week this equal 1lb of fat (Based on completely unrelated science from the 1950's) but that it will continue like this with the only assumption being adherence. I think this advice is a mistake, let me elaborate.

    Let's take an individual who has never dieted before and receives this advice. We immediately, within a few days, slow down this individual's RMR based on misguided calculation (Unless you two reading this are using the new Body Weight Planner from NIH) and for what purpose? To have them start in a deficit! Why should we do that exactly? Using, i.e., the Body Weight Planner you will find your TDEE. If you have not dieted before you will most likely lose weight simply by eating the calculated value. Why put unnecessary stress on your body unless you need to? After this when fat loss stall reduce calories with 50-100kcal/week or increase exercise, if possible. I do not get the rush, or I do, I have been there and it is damn pointless. Things go so much better at a slow pace and is much easier to control.

    My new advice to anyone asking will be the following:

    1. Get your TDEE based on the new calculations. (NIH, Precision Nutrition)
    2. Eat at your TDEE until weight stabilizes.
    3. Reduce calories with 50-100/kcal/week when stalled.

    For the small amount of people left on this, now almost dead, forum here is my weekly update. As I suspected I simply had a bad week or so and sticking to it is still generating acceptable results. Slow and steady!

    Week 5 stats:
    80.6 kg or 177.7 lb

    That's the key, slow and steady

    How is your energy level?

    How much longer on cycle do you have left?

    I checked out that website and it says I would need 3159 cals to maintain. If I would eat that much on a daily basis I would gain weight so fast, no way my slow ass metabolism could keep up. May have to try it but worried I would gain pretty quickly

    This was my assessment as well and I am not certain how differences in metabolism are discerned in the calculation.

    Energy levels are crazy high. I really do not even feel like I am on any sort of diet. I know it sounds bizarre but I have, for me, found a perfect equilibrium.

    Got about 4 weeks left ending April 30.

    You sure you set the correct activity levels and such? The math behind this is pretty darn solid and for me this is spot on.

    This is a good question. Should you both have time I suggest watching this VERY dry video of what this is based on here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPi1LQHBWBk He starts talking about the Biggest Loser at 19.22 which is partially what have gotten me to never, EVER, try drastic cutting again unless it would be for some sort of stage purpose of photoshoot which for me is 6-months out.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure. I workout or do cardio at least 5-8 times a week. I may give it a go and see what happens, I love to eat!!!!! I agree, cutting too fast is not good for body, too many changes too quickly. The body likes to stay the same, a state of homeostasis.

    Weight remained the same this week and again real life is somewhat interfering with stuff. I rely on a very heavy workout schedule to keep up fat loss and with the slightest interruption fat loss stalls. I am back on schedule again this week but also dropped calories with 50 kcal/day. Good news, Visa extended for another year in India. Anyone who has witnessed Indian bureaucracy in full force will never complain about the American system again ;-)

    Week 6 stats:

    80.6 kg or 177.7 lb

    I too rely on my workout schedule to maintain. Life happens, needle moves.

    I don't think the average population comprehends that 50 cal a day will have an effect. That a small apple.

    Different kind of update today. My wife, who just left for Ireland this morning, sat me down last night and said, and I quote, "You ever put that ****ing Trenbolone in your body again I and your daughter is gone. You are acting like an asshole". So, got to figure something out for my next round as I will not take a chance of that shit happening. I started to look at Testosterone Propionate . While not as efficient maybe I'll be less asshole like.

    That's why I keep my usage a secret from my wife. She just thinks I am naturally an asshole.

    I can not live in that way, or I should say, chose not too. If something were to go wrong I will need her help and that would be a terrible time to explain everything.

    No weight loss this week. The reason is clear, I attended my first ever 3-day Indian weeding and food and drinks were plentiful. Last shot of Tren -A tomorrow which is making my wife happy. Next around I am going to try and replace this with Test-P and add some Anavar .

    Back on this thread since my other one crashed and burned pretty quick. This was really going well until my May break so I am just going to pick it up where I left off. Eating around 200g Protein, 50g Fat, and 390g Carbohydrates.

    I'll update weight weekly or so. Still about 15% body fat and I feel really good mentally where I am at.
