2nd cycle review
Finished my 2nd cycle 7/25/03.
It's been 4 weeks since the last review. Results are (IMO) better than my 1st cycle thought the numbers don't show it.
I tweaked my diet during this cycle and cut out almost all carbs. Basically a 2 week Keto if I am correct. I only ate 50g (per day) of carbs for 5 days + 100g dextrose PW (per day) than loaded 500g for 1 full day.
for the 2 weeks of rest after my 1st cycle diet stayed the same as before
2700 cals a day w/ 45/35/20 split - same supps as before as well
On wed 7/23 I was 213 but as of sunday I was 220 (summer time + humidity = huge water weight fluctuation). Also had my BF on Wed as well 10%.
so results were 4lb drop and roughly 1% BF drop but...... mirror results are much more impressive. definition in all muscles in much more apparent. Abs are actually obvious now, still not shredded but I used to be 23% bf 3 years ago. Very vascaular and feal much more solid.
No serious side effects - always feel hot, if you don't drink enough water with this stuff you can feel your kidneys and liver strain tighten up and cramp a little. ended up drinking about 2 to 2.5 gallons a day to feel normal with no cramping.
This is the first product I have ever used that actaully yielded the results claimed. Besides liver pills this is the finest product I have invested in. Thanks for a great product BDC.

I imagine the results would be a little better if you didn't run a keto diet. With the excessive intake of fat you really aren't taking advantage of the uncouplers ability to hinder the body in converting glucose to ATP.

While running a keto diet may not be the best for usnic wouldn't you say that the usnic will still help the keto diet to be better?

I never upped my fat intake at from the previous diet, stayed about the same which is why I wasn't sure when I said Keto (should of said carb depletion maybe?). I just cut my diet from
2700 cals a day w/ 45/35/20 split
2600 cals a day w/ 60/20/20 split
then just had a re-feed day uping it to 60/80/20 - (I know that doesn't make sense - just upped the carbs to 500 for one day)
also didn't mention before - downed my cardio to 20 min 3x a week.
WYD2 - you think I should of kept my carbs up where they were at?
going from what I read I thought I was right on with the lose of 4 lbs (with lower BF I thought it was harder to lose that last remaining 4 % to get to 6%), I could of lost more than that but like I said before with the summer heat I have weird water weight fluctuations so the weight could of been up a little.
Still worked way better than I imagined- you think it is too taxing on the liver if I did a 3rd cycle in two weeks or shoudl I give it a rest for a month or so??
