I am two weeks and five days into Epi and Stano, and despite consuming calories at or below maintenance, I have gained fourteen pounds so far. My strength is through the roof and every time I go to the gym someone new is saying, "Wow. You got a lot bigger since I saw you last." I have leaned up slightly, but not like my original goal for this stack.
Soooo.. I am three weeks in and have three weeks left at 40mg Epi and 800mg Stano. From reading everyone elses logs of this cycle, these last three weeks should be where all the gains are noticed. Would there be any problem with cutting calories steep, say 2k a day for the next three weeks, and refeeding the day before my last workout to see my gains for the cycle? From there, I would probably up my calories quite a bit for week one of PCT with a lot of fats to help get hormones back up, but then I would drop calories down to a more moderate amount after that to continue cutting.
Like I said, I am really liking the strength and moderate hardening effects of the cycle so far, but 250lbs is just too much weight for my body at my current BF%.
