    I ended up actually gaining back some size, while slowly but surely losing fat!

    Thanks Mattrag and Whacked. Yeah, I think that when supplements cease to dictate one's appetite, pre-training intensity, daily energy levels, etc. one's body will HOPEFULLY 'reboot' eventually.

    As a matter of fact I have a few nutrient partitioners on the way. lol. I won't touch things that mess with my mental state anymore with a FEW exceptions such as I MAY get back on the Relora/Sensoril combination, Andro Drive (preg and dhea are amazing for general well-being and neural/andrenal function and Andro Drive kicks ass), green tea, maybe a cup of coffee, and that's about it. I'm excited to re-introduce supplements into my daily regimen.

    Yea nutrient partitioners r key for me bc I'm quite insulin intolerant. I'm taking revamp right now which has preg in it also.

    That's tight! Yeah, I am a huge fan of Glycobol, Slin Sane, and I've put Vasotropin in my recent order to arrive tomorrow.

    There was a lot of good ideas in here; would have preferred a caffeine/stim taper as opposed to going cold turkey as most try to do. It probably would have been easier for you - but no looking back.

    I think 2 sets of agents can help you out in the instances of withdrawl:

    1. Mitochondrial Optimizers

    In particular: Carnitine (salts); CoQ10 (preferably ubiquinol or ubiquinone dosed doubly); Coenzyme 1 (NADH); Na-R-ALA (and additional thiamine or benfotiamine and riboflavin which are co-factors assisting ALA in its dehydrogenase activity)

    -and-

    2. Adrenal Recovery Agents

    In particular: Rhodiola; Pantethenic Acid; Schizandra; DHEA (if fat-loss still desired; I would prefer the 7-keto or 7-OH variants); Phosphatidylserine (high-dose) - for those that talked about Reset AD or even the so-called equivalent (Revamp)...there is little room for licorice supplementation or bovine adrenal extracts - they won't help you and could be counter-productive, especially if going on to use licorice at any length AND avoiding it opens up the potential to use HIGHER efficacious doses of said ingredients). Here's the thing; When you are Rhodiola naiive...you WILL "feel" it upon dosing properly...companies using it will bank on it...YOU HAVE TO CYCLE this and any other "adaptogen" through the week (5 on, 2 off -or- 3 on, 1 off - kind of like how stims should be micro-cycled).





    Great discussion in a "stimulant-junkie" society.

    That makes sense about cycling adaptogens. I will cycle them out more when I take them.

    Midway thru my first off week in over a year. No training since Sunday (I lift 3-5 days a week depending on goals and run 3, walk 1 or 2 depending on goals.. This week I have done nothing The scale actually dropped as of yesterday. Eating about the same amount of cals which has really helped me psychologically to not over train so much moving forward. Only dietary changes were reducing some fats about 20g n upping protein n possibly even upping carbs a bit.. Aside from the gym I not an "active person" bc I am usually too beat from my workouts to engage in strenuous leisure activities.. Just been going to Class and playing more video games than normal.. Like the good ol days of when I was overweight (minus all the nasty food I would eat in between football games on my plsyststion lol)

    This is all with one low dose stimulant far burner.. Really has helped me psychologically ... Actually not looking forward to returning to the gym ! :/

    I enjoy 1 scoop of supersize for a pre-wo boost, only 75mg caffiene. Or half to 3/4 scoop craze which is 40-60mg caffiene
