    Getting smacked by Purus Labs!




    Benefits Include:

    * Increased nutrient absorption and utilization within muscle tissue
    * Enhanced energy utilization and glycogen resynthesis
    * Improved carbohydrate metabolism
    * Enhanced post receptor insulin signaling
    * Faster recovery from strenuous exercise
    * Diminished free radical production
    * Nutrient partitioning



    Fat Smack™ contains a carefully selected blend of ingredients, based on human evidence for effect in relation to multiple aspects of weight/fat loss, and used at the research-proven dosages. While regular exercise and optimal dietary intake inclusive of frequent, macronutrient balanced and nutrient dense meals (as well as adequate water intake) should be viewed as most important in the quest for body weight/fat reduction and the reduction of cardiovascular and metabolic disease risk, use of a weight/fat loss agent such as Fat Smack™ may be an adjunct to this lifestyle plan.

    For more infomation on the above products see below:

    SLINshot (90 Capsules)

    Fat Smack (90 caps)


    Overview
    First I would like to thank Grambo for hooking it up with this stack and logginf it for them, also for their patience with me. I just finished a havoc pulse with recomp as my goal and then after PCT I was taking a APS stack in hopes of keeping my gains and limiting fat gain. Well during this log my daughter was born and my diet kind of went to sh!t. My weight stayed floating around 200lbs but I am no where near the composition that I would have like to be in by this point and hear comes Purus Labs to the rescue! My goal is to get my diet back in order and drop some fat that I am carrying around with me

    Goals
    Drop fat while maintaining/gaining strength.

    Current Stats:
    Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: Currently floating around 198-200
    Body Fat % - Will be done this week with a caliper I have
    Measurements - Also will be done this week and put in here

    Weight progress
    3/5/2011: 198lbs
    1/30/2011: 192lbs
    11/7/2010: 187lbs
    9/23/2010: 196lbs

    Supplements

    What I will be reviewing
    Purus Labs Slin Shot
    Purus Labs Fat Smack

    Staples
    Scivation Xtend
    LG Sciences BC+EAA
    APS Creatine Nitrate
    APS Mesomorph
    Mealtonin
    Nutraplanet Bulk Yellow Gold
    Nutraplanet WMS
    Fish Oil
    CLA
    Zinc

    Nutrition Outline
    Diet will be real simple. I am somewhat paleo so this will effect my food choices thoughout the day. Also in attempt to maintain the diet my eating is going to look pretty mundane and repetitive. The goal of the diet is to maintain stable insulin levels to minimize fat gain.
    Here are the guideline of my diet
    •Each meal will contain 42-49g protein & 20g fat
    • Starcy carbs will be limited to post workout only
    • Two servings of fruit a day maximum)
    • Thre servings of veggies a day (minimum)
    • One free cheat meal a week

    Also at a maximum I will be doining a 24 hour water fast once a week. I used to do these all the time but havent in a while. The main purpose of fasting for me is the health benifits and longivity from it but the increased weight loss is a nice benefit.


    Sample Day
    Wake up at 6AM

    Pre Workout
    1 cap Fat Smack/ 1 cap Slin Shot/ 5 caps Creatine Nitrate

    20 mins later:
    Intra Workout
    4 scoops Xtend

    1 cap Slinshot on last resisted training exercise

    Post Workout
    1 scoop WMS
    1 scoop Xtend
    3 caps Creatine Nitrate

    1hr later post workout meal
    4 whole eggs with spinach/ 2oz chicken breast/ 35g carb worth from red potatoes or quiona

    Second meal:
    4 whole eggs with spinach/ 2oz chicken breast/ half grape fruit

    Third meal:
    4 whole eggs with spinach/ 2oz chicken breast/ half grape fruit

    Fourth Meal:
    7oz albacore tuna/ 20g almonds/ 5 caps CLA/ 1/2 cup green beans

    Fifth Meal:
    2 scoops whey/ 28g almond butter/ 5 caps CLA/ 1/2 cup green beans

    Pre-Bed
    1 cap slin shot
    1 scoop BC+EAA

    Workout
    My workout will be 4 days a week with a upper body and lower body split and will use maximum effort and repeated effort methods. Here is the outline that I use
    Main Lift
    Supplemental
    Accessory
    Prehab
    Core
    Grip

    Conclusion
    This pretty sums up what I am going to be doing in this log. Any questions, comments, suggestions, etc are all welcome and appreaciated. One thing I am really looking forward to is the combo of creatine nitrate and slin shot. If slin shot increases the absorption of creatine mono and creatine nitrate is soupposed to be almost 1000% more soluble the two combined should be fun

    Just woke up and took my fat smack and slinshot. I think it took about 15 mins before the fat smack started kicking in but I feel good now. Sipping on some WMS/xtend and about to go lift now..

    I take it you have taken fat smack before? I took it this morning and was expecting it to kick it faster I almost went threw some mesomorph in a shaker cup to help wake me up and then BOOM in kicks in the fat smack.. I got to say I am liking the feeling so far. More of a euphoria feel good type feeling which is nice because most stims I take make me want to kill people

    Finisher

    Narrative

    Today was lowerbody as day you can see above. My first thoughts on slingshot are mixed. I only took one cap and was expecting it to kick in sooner than it did. I almost mixed up some mesomorph so I could get that extra kick and then BOOM in came fatsmack..LOL.. I guess the name is approiate because it caught me off gard and sort of smack me with the energy. The stim is a good stim.. not really jittery at all more of I feel good type feeling. It was nice actually to get a different kind of stim feeling for once. I am going to take only one cap tomorow too and then after that try two and see how that is.

    As for the SLINshot I am not sure if this is related but I did get a headache shortly after taking it but I took SLINshot twice and only got the headache once so not sure if they are related.. we will see tomorrow.

    3/7

    Outline

    Wake up - 1 cap Fat Smack, 1 cap yellow gold

    Meal 1 - Smoothie - pineapple, coconut oil, whey and egg protein, greens mix, & ice - 3 caps fish oil & 3 caps CLA

    Meal 2 - Eggs scrambled with chicken breast

    WORKOUT

    1 Cap SLINshot, 1 cap Fat Smack
    10mins later 6 caps Creatine Nitrate
    15mins later start Warm up and sipping on 4 scoops Xtend mixed with 1 scoop WMS. Continued to sip throughout workout

    ME Upper Body

    Defranco agile 8
    Pushups x20
    Rotational Lunges AR x20
    Sandbag Clean & Press x10
    Standing Military Press 50x5/ 60x5/90x3/100x3/115x3/120x3/125x3/125x4
    Seated Thick Bar Rows - 3x10 @80
    Pull Ups-2x10 (Took another cap SLINshot around this time
    DB Farmer Walks with Fat Gripz - till failure with 45.DBs
    100 Push Ups - done as fast as possible
    DB Farmer Walks with Fat Gripz - till failure with 45.DBs

    Immediately after workout 2 scoops Xtend with 1 scoop WMS and 2 caps Creatine Nitrate

    About 1 hour later
    Rib-eye steak, red potatoes, & broccoli

    2 hours later
    Pre Bed
    1 cap SLINshot and 1 scoop BC+EAA with some zinc and melatonin

    Totals (rough estimate)
    Calories - 2000
    Fat - 82g
    Sat fat - 37g
    Carbs - 103g
    Fiber - 8g
    Protein - 192g

    In hindsight I probably should have eaten one more meal this day and also to add the above calories and protein intake doesn't include my xtend and bc+eaa drink. If I add them in it comes to about 232g protein roughly. I am not sure exactly how the energy breakdown of aminos are so I tend not to count them in as calories because I doubt they are 4kcal per gram as proteins are and I also tend not to add them into my protein intake for the day but today's looked a little low on the protein side so I added them in to make me feel better

    3/8

    Narrative
    So I am fasting today. I go back to work as well (I had off for the past 3 weeks because I recently had a daughter and took advantage of the family leave act ) Not really fasting but more like under eating today. I going till 10pm tonight (when I get home from work which should be roughly a little over 24hrs fasting) and then I will pop a SLINshot and make me some stir fry of rice, potatoes, veggies, and chicken

    It isn't exactly fasting because I will be drinking some aminos throughout the day. Here is what that will be
    7 scoops BC+EAA
    1.5g glutamine
    3g taurine
    5 caps fish oil
    5 caps CLA

    I will have at max three of those drinks today and will also be taking my Fat Smack. I will note my appetite so see if there is any suppression or not. I fast regularly so I have an idea of how hungry I should be feeling today.

    So far I took 2 caps Fat Smack this morning and all is going good.. weight was 192 this morning which is already a drop probably mostly due to the drop in carbs I have been eating for the past 2 weeks.

    Not really too noticeable. I feel like it kind of sneaks in on your and sneaks out. I am really enjoying the stim feel of this though. My most recent fat burner that I took was ECA and that is what I usually take so as you can imagine Fat Smack is a nice change for me.

    I am about to read through the other logs and see what thy are saying about stim from this. Interested to see if they are feeling the same way about the stim from this or I am just a stim junkie and thats why it isn't as strong feeling for me. Either way I am enjoying it right now

    Josh, I had to use fat smack at 3 caps twice a day and some days I would do 4 caps in the AM then 2 pre workout with my pre workout drink. It's a nice clean stim with out the jitters and crash. Every log I've seen seems to say the same thing. I'm a stim junkie and loved fat smack but it had two cons gave me heart burn and only have 45 servings at 2 caps so for us heavy stim users makes it a little expensive. It is one of the only fat burners I use that I lost weight and noticed my tummy was tighter and I changed nothing in my diet.

    Enjoy!

    Wow 4 caps... And I thought I was the junkie

    I am prolly gonna stick with 3 caps a day and see how that is then start adding in caps throughout. As for the stim yea it is way different energy then most fat burners I have used. I haven't had any heartburn with it yet so I got my fingers crossed :crossx: around how much did you loose when you took it?

    I find this SLINshot really interesting on how it can help absorb creatine. If it works good with the creatine nitrate this may be a staple for me and if not then I will still give it another try in the future with some mono.

    I'd have to look back at my log but I think I lost 3 or 4 pound without changing anything. Had a great thermo effect and made cardio a breeze. They sell it at my gym and I might be picking some up for the wife. I'm only allowing myself bulk sns caffeine for awhile lol

    Why only caffeine? Just curious..

    also how was the effect of the fat smack at higher caps? Still that smooth high?

    I'm stacking the caffeine with bulk 1,3 , bitter orange and alpha-T2

    The stim buzz was always smooth but at 4 caps I think I started to feel a little cracked out but no crash.

    I'm gonna end up buying more fat smack unless I unsubscribe lol **** was good

    Yup 6! 4 scoops are used pre/intra workout and 2 scoops are immediately after workout. The 4 scoops intra is pretty standard and I don't drink a whey shake after my workout I take more xtend (usually 1-2 scoops).

    Being in a calorie deficit I feel it's important to surround your workout with aminos to help maintain muscle.

    Xtend truely is one of my staples that I use consistently and in all honestly if you break it down it really isn't that much money.

    180 scoops a container
    5 scoops a workout would give me 36 workouts

    Nutra sells xtend for $45
    So $45/ 36 workouts is $1.25 a workout!

    $1.25 a workout really isn't much at all.. Let me break it down further

    I usually lift 3 times a week
    3 times a week / 36 workouts would be 12 weeks worth of workouts

    12 weeks is about 3 months
    So $45 for the container and it last 3 months is
    45/3 = $15 a month

    I think $15 a month is way worth it for a product that I know works.
    If you think about how much do you pay for other supplements and how long do they last? I used to run through whey and now I barely buy it. I usually only use whey for in-between meals when I'm pressed for time and that's only when I don't already have some eggs or chicken cooked that's in the fridge. BCAAs are great and a staple for me especially while trying to cut.



    45 for 90

    2.50 a workout and last 18 workouts which at 3 workouts a week last 6 weeks*

    Ever consider using a 4:1:1 bcaa instead of the 2:1:1 formula?

    I never really looked for a bcaa mix with that ratio bit I have thought about buying some bulk leucine and adding it my xtend before but never did.

    I am more than willing to try one if you know of any with that ratio

    I might invest in a tub after my xtend is done to give it a try. I wonder if I would still need 4 scoops intra workout with that much leucine in theirs?

    Have you tasted nutras bulk BCAAs and leucine before? I was thinking of mixing my own batch and using some vitaberry for flavoring

    Put it like that it makes sense. I was also thinking 90 scps instead of servings, 180 good deal. Never had it gotta try it

    I use 2, may try 4 and see how that works.

    I haven't tried NP BCAA's. That's a great idea though, provided vitaberry taste good.

    lol 6 scoops sounded like a lot then i remembered that thats only 3 servings, i was thinking like 42g bcaas

    i was rly unimpressed with recoverypro's flavoring. was literally like bcaa's with underdosed lemonade crystal light. i had to mix a whole tub of vitaberry with it to make it taste manageable. but xtend is amazingggg on flavor, but more $$. trade offs either way

    No problem

    I really like xtend but then again I have only tried xtend and recoup for BCAAs. There are lots of options when it comes to bcaas.. I obvioudly recomend xtend but recoverpro and ibcaas are some really good other options too I just never used them

    Well I have really been meaing to try and take in more leucine. I read an article about it a while back and it really peaked my interest but I just never really put forth the effort to seek out a mix that already had the higher amount of leucine and was afraid of ordering nutras bulk leucine and destroying the delicious flavor of my xtend

    I am seriously gonna give recoverpro a shotI am thinking after this container of xtend is done unless a sale pops up in which I may end up ordering it sooner to try it out

    vitaberry has been on my list of supplements to try but never got around to it. I had recieved a sample pack a loooong time ago but it ended up lost and never took it

    What is the ratio of IBCAAs?

    Side note one your PPs reps PM'd me with an offer to log one of the andro series products at a discount and it has really been messing with my head. I dont really have the funds currently but I do have a credit card and so tempted to just say fuk it! and order away. That androlean looks very promising and a androlean+androhard looks even better and a tren+androhard stack sounds like it could be fun too. Ahh decisions, decisions...

    Im somewhat confused ..what did you have to make the vitaberry with? and yes xtend is delicious! I have the grape flavor now and loving it. You think recoverpro is a better deal? I gotta compare the price per servings and see

    I never had the pleasure to try watermelon... I have had lemonade, grape, lemon lime, and apple. So far grape is my favorite

    So recoverpro is off the shelves currently?.. hopefully when it comes back they will have a sale price and I will definetely order one then to test out
