    Seeking Advice

    I'll try to keep this short and sweet.
    I have lost 70 pounds, and maintained this for 2 1/2 years. I can't seem to lose anymore body fat, or make big muscle gains. I'm currently 5'4, 135lbs, and 22-24% body fat (Mix of HIIT, lifting, cardio- diet is in check). I've tried a few fat burners from GNC- all seem useless. Tried an ECA stack in the past, worked wonderfully, but not accessible anymore. Have been advised to try Anavar , because I don't want an injectable, and it's potentially less harmful for me being a woman- in a low dose. Only problem is, it's more than likely bunk, online is useless for finding a reliable and reputable source (I'm not asking for a source), and being a female, we have less options!
    Can anyone else make any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as Var goes - I always suggest pharmaceutical grade for a female(it just takes out the what if it's?!)


    135 pounds @ 5'4" is very respectable


    But, what you are seeing is natural body plateu - even on drugs of any for we get there


    To break it, you need to go out of your norm - extreme cal deficit, EC or other thermogenics(you can buy Ephedra in a pharmacy BTW), steroids do actually help you lose weight in any way - they just allow you do things you couldn't naturally, like drop fat while on a cal deficit diet, yet gain muscle


    There other things - anything from diet modifications, to just about anything



    BTW - Welcome & rock on for losing 70 pounds < that's some serious weight!

    Dinner: 5oz chicken, half cup brown rice, and spinach. Cal=359

    Hi!!! Congrats. That's amazing progress. The last 5 lbs are a beotch!!!

    Lunch could be improved with meal similar to dinner. There's not much protein going on and replace pb with healthy fat.

    I know other members find ways to make an ECA stack. I haven't but others still do it and seems like your best bet.

    Carb cycling is another approach although our carbs are very low to begin.

    Var is a viable option. I found good source second time around so I understand there's fakes out there.

    Let me know how I can help.
