    If you did cut calories then add them back to fast your gonna get fat.

    Idk.

    First off 6 days a week plus running and your at 2000 calories / day? You're already starving. Try fixing your metabolism. An 800 calorie deficit is 1200 calories which is below healthy.

    Fix your diet. Under eating can make you obese

    And my coach actually wanted me to lower calories from 1700-200 I'm eating now to 1400. he thinks I'm overeating
    Also I haven't missed a workout for years... I'm scared to miss a week in addition to upping the calories. u r saying I shouldn't be?

    6 days a week and you're over eating at 1400? That's BS.

    At 30 years old with your stats working out 5 days a week all the 7 calorie calculators say your maintenance calories should be over 2200 calories. Plus running plus an extra day equals about 300 extra calories.

    I really hope you told your coach about the t3 use. If he didn't know and you started gaining a lot after using then his advice is null and void. T3 use changes your dietary needs especially when coming off.

    At 1400 your in the "extreme" range for fat loss. Meaning more muscle lost.

  9. Ok so I am 24 about to be 25. And yes she knows about t3. She uses it only for contest prep though. But i was really desperate, you see. She is actually insisting on 1400 calories plus a full morning cardio session instead of 5k after the workout. I have done 1400 before and I know it is border line for me, anything less is really hard to tolerate. Well this all is very confusing. I used the bmr calculator many times too but she says I shouldn't believe it since people have different metabolisms. While one is eating everything n is still skinny the other is counting calories and gaining weight easily

  10. Please dont think Im arguing. I am not. I think my coach is great. She has great results herself but unfortunately not so great with me... And if I thought she was 100% right I would have never asked you for help. And I am asking!

  11. For those following tbhis thread, I'm just adding some notes....

    Iron, Magnesium and Calcium (supps and fgoods contatrining these) all affect/bind thyroud so avoid intake at a similar time.

    Also read that caffiene/coffee also adversely affects thyroid absorption as well

    Given all of this, I'm reading that people are switching to pre-bed intake.

    Not saying this is a great idea, but from what I've read, it's generally well-tolerated (however ti did causde sleep issue with some).

  12. I've been on t3 for about 10 days. I started running 12.5mcg on sept 12, then ramped up to 25mcg that sunday and hit 50mcg last tueday (16th).

    If I stopped right now, how long can I estimate to be suppressed for?

    I can order kelp and have selenium on hand for pct.

    The thyroid recovers very quick. Even after long-term use of T3 studies show your thyroid goes back to normal after a couple weeks. And by long-term use I mean like a few years. I believe Pyrobatt stated this earlier in the thread too.

    Yes, I read the whole thread.

    So I could basically just stop right now and recover pretty quickly because it was a short cycle?

  15. Anyone know if t3 can be used safely with type 1 diabetes. Thinking about jumping on cycle and throwing in some t3 for a lean bulk/recomp.

    Following along as I may actually be prescribed this shortly.

    Synthroid is not doing jack for me unfortunately, none if my doctors seem to understand why but my conversion to active T3 is extremely poor.

    If anyone has an idea as to why or something else I could try I am all ears.

    I thought tapering just prolongs suppression?

    On the topic of tapering: when tapering from 50 -> 25 -> 12.5 -> 6.25, at doses below 25, does the thyroid begin to come back online? Or because the body still recognizes exogenous t3, it doesn't create as much?

    I believe its the latter u stated. By tapering you're allowing your thyroid to start up normal production. The thyroid doesn't get suppressed the same as your HPTA does with AAS. Don't quote me on this but I believe that's the right protocol.

    I went off my last run of T3 could turkey just because Lol. And I never noticed a thing wiyh y metabolism slowing down. In fact, since then it seems faster. But I agree that there is no fear of it not bouncing back really quickly! Unless you have a some kind of medical problem

    Yeah that whole myth of burning out your thyroid was garbage. I'm glad that was debunked.

  22. Yep. My ex took it and she has way slower metabolism than me and she ran it at 25mcg and burned loads of fat and gained some muscle and when she went off she didn't have fat gain or any sign of thyroid being skewed. And her metabolism wasnt crazy to start with. If anyone would have had problems its her.

    Lol T3 is like cheating

  24. T3 can be fun for the slow metabolism crowd (me) as it utilizes surplus calories so efficiently.

    Only issue I don't care for it the extreme muscle FLATNESS observed from use.

    I do attempt to compensate with higher carbs and this works "ok" however for me, huge amounts of carbs make me feel like crap and thwart fat loss anyway so it gets to be a counterproductive circle. lol

    I still use it from time to time when I get sick of eating so rigidly all the time and don't want to blow up from taking a break from this disciplined eating style.

    25-50 mcg max seems to be my sweet spot. I'm convinced 25 mcg suffices and that the only reason I ever needed 50 was b/c the source was under-dosed.

    I agree with all that. Since going up to 50mcg only for competition purposes my pumps have suffered but I do manage to stay pretty full with the gear I'm on. But if I go above 50mcg its just unpleasant and I'm always flat it sucks. 25mcg is where'd I'd always stay

  26. Same here - I'd live on 25 mcg if I was convinced it woiudlnt mess me up LONG term

    I dosed 50 for a first dose night before last and yesterday I felt draggy and terribly sore and like I had no energy. Now I'm thinking that it was the t3
