    Increased Intake for Cycle?

    Hey guys. I have a log going and I'd ask in there, but there doesn't seem to be a ton of traffic in that area of the forums so I figured I'd ask here.

    I'm currently running my first cycle: 10mg of var for 10 weeks. (Currently on the first day of the second week)
    I'm a female, early 20's. 5'8 and 130#. I powerlift 5x a week and walk anywhere from 3-5 miles a day on campus.

    My usual intake is 130-140g carbs/65g fat/130-145g protein.

    Here's the thing, I'm simultaneously super hungry and not hungry at all...ALL the time.
    This cycle has so far suppressed my appetite a lot, but I'm always feeling like I need food and I'm SO tired lately + not recovering super quickly.

    I'm wondering: is it necessary or recommended to bump up intake on a cycle? I'm wary of increasing intake TOO much since I have a meet coming up in June and I compete in the 132# weight class.

    Find out when the weigh in begins for your meet.

    Most are 24 hours before the competition.

    If this is the case you can be over 132lb and still make your weight class.

    Just go to a sauna on campus (bring a scale with you), and lose enough weight to make your weigh class.

    Then go weigh in a day ahead of time and then re hydrate.

    I would always be about 4-5 pounds over my weight class when I competed.
