So during cuts is a good time for me to just use natty supps, gray area stuff (like 7/11), things like that. I don't want to be on this stuff all the time, taking a break is good....plus the natty stuff is pretty effective nowadays.

    haha, at this point i am actually speaking out of both sides of my mouth....I just started TRT a month and a half ago, so technically I am "on" all year round....but I practiced what I preach before the TRT, so most of what I say is from the non-TRT guy I was for 99.9% of my life. I will say this, to each their own....if you don't mind being on something while cutting/recomping/bulking (much of the year)? and got the cash? and are willing to buy support supps? then by all means cut with gear and/or PH/DS....hell, I used 3-400mg of test once to rip off a bunch of fat I had accumulated while being sedentary from a health issue for 6 months. fastest most effective cut of my life ....but i usually choose to go the natty route for my cuts...for the reasons I explained before....

    Catabolism is merely the breaking down of polymers into monomers. It is a necessity . it will happen, and it does happen. through hormonal manipulation or very slow weight loss, you can control what % of protein is broken down, but ultimately, some will. It is biologically impossible to not catabolize protein to some extent, however minute, during a cut ( or calorie deficit significant enough to induce speedy weightloss).
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    true, but you can keep it to a minimum by having everything within your control spot on (training, nutrition, rest etc).....anabolics can only help with catabolism, but just saying that you gotta take some time off from AAS and PH/DS (or at least I like to)....so for me cutting is the best time to do so. I really feel gear is best suited for recomps or bulks (any time you want to build muscle)....but like i said last post, I've used test or PH/DS to cut before, just not nearly as much as on recomp or bulk.

    Gaining or losing "weight" is relatively easy. Anabolics allow you to gain more lbm than fat and conversely allow you to lose more fat than lbm -- assuming diet and training are adjusted accordingly for either goal.

    I would not jump into IF if you have never tried it, chances are you will fail hard i think. 2nd yes you should use a ph to cut so you can preserve muscle. 3rd its all about diet, you can bulk or cut on IF.

    Straight to the point haha thanks man. I plan on trying IF in short increments first and moving up until I feel like I have it down before going full on into it.
