About the diet though, I'm bulking, and I don't expect to stay this lean while taking in this many calories/carbs, but I am NOT worried about fat gains at the moment. I honestly don't mind that my abs are disappearing at all. I'm just gonna try and eat as much as possible to work on the muscle gains, then I'll cut again in the spring. I think I've got this whole cutting thing down, but bulking has always been a ***** for me, so I'm gonna eat and eat and eat and eat... My metabolism is definitely a little . But I'm gonna give it hell!

Day 3: Tuesday, September 23 - Update #2
Weight: 181.6 (+.8)
The extra walking today was definitely beneficial, but tomorrow I need to wear more comfortable shoes. Bad idea wearing pointed toe dress shoes. I did quite a bit of stretching this evening (especially hamstring stretching) and I'm feeling quite limber.
Ok, seriously... WTF gives here? Again, I know it is only day 3, but I have to stress this because it's very apparent. My appetite is getting ridiculous. Last night and this morning I was getting hungrier sooner after finishing meals, and since this afternoon I am finishing meals and not feeling content. These same meals were a struggle for me just last week. I have thrown in an extra 2 whole wheat bagels, 2 granola bars, and a cup of fruit today, and I am still hungry. I literally finished a meal 45 minutes ago, was still hungry, ate a bagel, was still hungry, ate a granola bar, and I'm hungry again. I'm more than just hungry though, I mean, I am HUNGRY. I am going to go throw another bagel in the toaster right now, and I'm gonna eat my last meal before bed in about an hour. The last time my appetite jumped like this was when I ran 1-Test/4AD this past winter. It'll be interesting to see how crazy this gets...
Again, I am not worried about my bf so I will just throw back as much food as I want and see what my body does with it. If I notice my body is putting on too much fat, I will make adjustments. If I feel that it is benefiting me, I will continue eating like a horse.

I'm guessing going from bedridden to physically active again has some part to do with your appetite increase. Coincidence that it suddenly spiked with the inclusion of your new stack?
Maybe the PRIME was the straw that broke the camels back, per se.

Shaddow, maybe you should PM Jakellpet to smuggle some ostrich eggs out of Zambia for you. One ostrich egg is apparently ~2000kcal

These past few days I have gone from struggling to finish my meals to not feeling full after eating them. I am also getting hungrier much sooner after eating, and it's not just, 'Yeah, I could use some food,' it's more like 'Man, I am HUNGRY.'
It is very obvious to me, and even more so after breakfast this morning (I'll speak on this in today's update), that my appetite has increased dramatically specifically due to my supplement stack.

Day 4: Wednesday, September 24
Weight: 181.8 (+1)
I woke up this morning and the first thing on my mind was FOOD. I NEED TO EAT! Wow. Hungry, hungry, hungry. Dosed my IGF-2 and went back to sleep for ~10 minutes, but I woke up feeling good and refreshed. Total sleep last night was about 7 hours, which is excellent by my standards.
I took an AP, showered, cooked breakfast, ate, and I was still hungry after eating. Had to hit the road though, so I ate a granola bar and left for work. It's now been about an hour and 40 minutes since I had breakfast, and I swear, I could eat an entire meal again right now. I stopped at CVS on my walk to work and picked up a couple boxes of granola bars (Nature Valley Oats 'N Honey) and a dozen protein bars (Pure Protein chocolate chip ) and will be snacking on these throughout the day to help counter hunger pangs.
Definite HUGE increase in appetite which has been steadily increasing as each day progresses.
Ok, here is where I'm a retard... I should be walking more, and I mentioned in my rehab log wanting to walk on the treadmill at the gym, but not having time cuz they were closing. Well... I have a treadmill at home (that doubles as a hamper ), so I'm gonna get on the ball with that. I think this will aid in my recovery.
Today I wore more comfortable shoes for my walk to work and I noticed an improvement from my walk yesterday. I can now take longer strides without feeling as much tension/tightness in my hamstring. So maybe the walk yesterday helped and perhaps the supplements are aiding in my recovery. My legs didn't feel quite as "jello-y" today on stairs, though the feeling is still there and noticeable.
I also noticed that my breathing seems to be easier - like I can take deeper breaths/feel more air going into my lungs which is kinda euphoric in a sense. I'm sitting at my desk breathing deeply right now, and it feels good.
Today is back & triceps day. I'm really looking forward to my workout tonight. I feel well-rested and alert, and I think I will have a very productive session.
More updates later.

Just a note for anyone following along (and I will go back and edit my opening post to include this info), I am marking every daily post/update with a , and the day/date in bold. This is just to make it easier for those who would like to skip past any random discussion going on in my log (which I am completely cool with, and encourage, so don't stop!).
Also, my weight is posted every morning, weighed on the same digital scale, purged, butt ass nekkid.

I heated up my food in the microwave, but I was in a rush so I probably wasn't paying enough attention. I meant to put 1:50 on it. I came back several minutes later and the microwave was still going and counting down from 9:40. I must've put 15:00!
My chicken is freaking dry as hell, spinach is crumbling like dry leaves, and my tomatoes look like salsa.
And the funny thing is... I am so freaking hungry I am eating it anyways.
The good news is I heated up my pasta beforehand, so at least my entire meal isn't ****.

All this talk about IGF-2 makes me want to get some IFG-1. That would be a nice addition to my next stack, methinks.
09-24-2008, 08:08 PM
Original IGF-2 (700 mg per capsule):
Safed Musli (50% extract)
Mucuna Pruriens (standardized to 25% L-Dopa)
Rhodiola Rosea (3% Rosavins)
Dodder Seed (Cuscuta Chineses)
Inactive - Gelatin, Cellulose
Recomped IGF-2 (700 mg per capsule):
Chlorophytum Borivilianum (50% extract) (i.e. Safed Musli)
Mucuna Pruriens (standardized to 75% L-Dopa)
Rhodiola Rosea (1% Rosavins)
Dodder Seed Extract (20:1 Cuscuta Chineses)
Bioperine (95-98% Piperine) Registered Trademark of Sabinsa Corp. and holds patent # 5,536,506
Inactive - Maltodextrin M150, Gelatin, Titarium Dioxide, FD&C Blue #1
The new formula is MORE potent than the original, having a STRONGER extract of L-Dopa, and adding to its ingredient profile Bioperine. Because of the increased potency of the recomped version, and addition of Bioperine, dosing requirements are different (Original IGF-2: 3 doses daily; Recomped IGF-2: 2 doses daily) and less than when using the original (and these recommended doses are considered a MAXIMUM for that weight category).
It is most likely to be the Recomped IGF-2, since the Original IGF-2 is no longer in production.

Sorry about the chicken Bro. Careful ya dont chip a tooth.
