    Am I the only one that looses weight on slin?


    THis is my first tiem on slin. I started like 3-4 weeks ago at 10iu after my workout.
    I have since adjusted it to 8iu after bi's and tri's, 10iu after chest and back, and 12iu after
    legs. Since I started I increased my calorie intake by about 1000 cals a day and I have lost about
    5 lbs.All the extra calories are taken in within 4 hours of my workout mostly in the form of sugar and protien. Im not shrinking or anything, in fact Im not complaining as my arms grew about 1/4". Im just confused as
    to why Im getting leaner using slin?

    Im also on and was on test before the slin.


    anyone else get leaner on slin?

    At least I didnĀ“t get fat on it but it somehow stopped working well, so I paused.

    So this is your first time using slin and you started out with 10IU's right off the bat?

    Bro, when using something as serious as insulin, you NEED to do as much research as possible. And 20-30iu's is WAY overkill unless you're diabetic or have 270lbs. of PURE muscle on your frame. You could have ran into some SERIOUS problems starting out at such a high dose. Most guys will start out at 2iu's, access, and go from there.

    Please be careful bud.

    Careful using it as even if you don't notice anything drastic outside of your body you could be doing a lot of damage inside. Insulin is powerful and can wreak havoc on your body in the long term.If you're taking a lot of insulin and not noticing any effect you may be taking in a ton more carbs than you need to be. Dunno about the weight loss thing though.

    When I say I didn't do much research its because I am already very knowledgeable in both endocrinology and neurology and fully understand the role of insulin. I did do some research but with respect to what dose I'm going to take I just trust people at my gym that know me more than I trust someone online. they are the same size as me, or know what people my size just starting out should take and have been in the body building game as long or longer than me. like I said, my advice comes from Pro's and also, I am not a small guy that's new to the bodybuilding game. I'm 5'9" 220lb lean. 10iu is not a lot after you train. If you go to rxlist.com and look up humalog pharmacology you will see that they gave normal healthy volunteers 10 to 40iu during clinical trials. so at my size 10iu is a small dose and very safe. 12iu after legs I cant even feel.
    But thanks for the concern I totally agree with you on slin being dangerous.
