  1. Nice detail so far. I hope that you will be really pleased with the product.

    why not use 3g (6 caps) a day of TTA-500?
    Haha. Not everyone can mega dose like you

    I have actually never went above 4 caps per day myself, but really love the product.

    Not sure who's bulk TTA you are even referring to, but can assure you it has nothing to do with our product. We test all raw materials for quality before encapsulation, and then again for purity and potency after encapsulation.

    What you may be referring to is that most companies are no longer going to make TTA products when the current supplies run out because of it possibly not being deemed DSHEA compliant.

    I didn't think much about it, but it's probably doing a pretty decent job of the appetite suppression on my end, as well. My mind plays tricks on me, sometimes, and I forget how I usually feel (on top of the fact that the Synthroid plays somewhat of a role in the uncertainty right now, too lol). Definitely no cramps.

    Yesterday, I had some whole grain cereal and protein in the morning, canned chicken as meal 2 (50g protein), sandwich at lunch (40g carbs, 50g protein), 3 small slices of left-over pizza from the game Sunday night for meal 4, 5 eggs and some extra protein for meal 5 and 2 fiber-one bars. Normally I'd eat much more than that, but I just haven't been hungry, lately.

    Yesterday was the day we normally play ball at the church, but they have VBS this week. We were gonna get together and play outside somewhere else, but there just wasn't enough people. So, I took the night off. I'd normally do some cardio, instead, but my legs were still shot from Sunday's session. They're a bit sore, still, but much better, today.

    I'll be hitting chest this afternoon. I'm not sure what style the workout will be, yet.

    Shoutout to Makaveli for hooking me up with some great reading in regards to my thyroid issue. I feel like I'm learning what I need to, now, and hope to get some resolution, soon (for those interested, the links are now in the official hypothyroidism thread on AM).

    I started monday, just logging in general in my thiomucase log. I'm taking it along with a dose of vapo XT, HEAT and post cycle support 3-4x a day, with the last dose prebed without the vapo xt.

  11. oh and just to add, calling my thyroid functional is sort of iffy...

    I'm normally a big fan of using a routine that works well until it stops producing results, but getting in there without stims pre-workout is not fun lol. This helps a little bit.

    6/15/11 - Chest

    Bench Press: 135x20/185x15/225x12/255x10/255x7/225x10
    Incline Bench Press: 135x15/185x10/205x7/205x8/185x10
    DB Flys (low incline): 40's x 20 / 55's x 12
    Dips: BWx8 *(only felt in tri's and not chest at all)



    Well, the numbers are less than impressive. The incline bench was taken, so I started off on flat bench. Last Summer I was doing 365x6 at my best, so the above is frustrating lol. I definitely had an insane chest pump, though. The motivation and drive are still lacking a bit as I'm off stims.




    I spent most of the afternoon today in the city at the doc's office. They went over my labs of being on T4 at 112mcg now (up from 50) for 6 weeks. My TSH is down to 1.8 (from the original 5.67) and I can't remember FT4, but it's in range, too. They said that's when they'd normally tell me to come back in 3 months for more labs, but she (it was a nurse practitioner as my endo was out sick) was very receptive to listening to me, knowing that I did a lot of research and took this very seriously. I ended up having blood drawn right there to check: cortisol, reverse T3 to Free T3, B12, thyroid antibodies (to rule out or confirm Hashimoto's thyroiditis), and a full iron panel. I felt good about the visit and we'll see what those tests turn up in about a week.

    I ended up being there for way too long, and it had been 6 hours since I'd last eaten by the time I got home. Factor that in with the 6 vials of blood I had taken from me and I decided to push Back to tomorrow and not have a piss-poor workout tonight.

    By the way, weight yesterday morning upon rising was 240 lbs and today was 236.8 lbs. I'll be keeping an eye on that and fingers crossed we'll actually see a steady decline for a change instead of this normal up and down garbage that has been my life the last 8 months or more.

    Sounds like you had a productive dr's visit bro. I'm glad to know you got all those tests done, that should most certainly be VITAL info in getting to the bottom of things and getting it all straightened out. I'm especially curious to here your iron levels and reverse t3.

    Your battle is my battle man, you know I'm right there with ya with getting back on track. Let me know how those tests come out.

  16. Nice log man. Keep up the battle. I'm not looking forward to my upcoming stim break...

    Thanks, bro. It was definitely a great visit. The only endo in my town was booked til mid June when I called back in April. So, I decided to try one in the city. He happened to be the first one listed in network, so I called and they got me in on April 20th -- 2 months sooner lol. I ended up reading some reviews on him online a day or two before going up and they were very negative. Not even one good one to counter-balance it. However, I felt like I needed to still go and he turned out to be an awesome guy and was even looking at my test being part of the issue -- nice to find someone who doesn't just say in-range is acceptable.

    Anyway, he was out, so I met with a nurse practitioner. Again, I was a bit worried, but she turned out to be awesome. She seemed very willing to listen to me and work with me knowing that I'd done so much research. I should have tried to get her to sign off on test, too, to see what it would read with no test boosters or anything having been used in like a month lol.

    I told her about knowing a guy who had the reverse T3 issue and how our stories were like mirror images. I told her even if this is to just rule it out, then it would put my mind at ease, but I'd kick myself if I waited and never checked. We've got this thing, man. I'll definitely post what I find out whenever the results come in, too.

    Thanks, bud! And yeah, the stim break blows. I've done a 4-weeker and 5-weeker so far (April of last year and sometime around last Summer or Fall). I hadn't taken a real break from stims in several years, though, since starting pre-workouts that are jam-packed with them. One of my main worries was adrenal fatigue (sensitivity levels are definitely shot; no doubt about that) and how that may have cortisol levels working against my thyroid and the T4. I plan on going at least 12 weeks without stims. We'll see what I find out and if I have to, I'll stay off longer. Workouts suck without my normal pre-workouts so far, though.

  18. Coming off stims totally suck. I recently came off ECA and 1,3Dimeth and I felt like sh!t after that. Started dosing 1 scoop Focus XT per day after that and I am good again (I don't count caffeine as a stim, I drink too much coffee every day either way )

    Yeah, man, it blows.

    I would rather not count caffeine, but I'd ran E/C twice, so I was taking in 600mg caffeine/day right there, on top of whatever was in the pre-workout of choice at the time. Nothing just felt the way it used to and I had probably gone close to 3 years or more of not adhering to labels (can't say I ever read the 8 weeks on, 4 weeks off portion of any product). 4 weeks off and 5 weeks off did nothing, so here's to seeing if 12 does it. And if it doesn't, based on 1 scoop of a pre-workout, I'll just keep breaking.

  20. 600mg of caffeine daily But regarding your past I'd say a break is much needed to let your CNS rest - good call

    lol 200mg caffeine + 25mg ephedrine 3x/day +400-500mg EGCg 2x/day

    The first time I ran it, I shredded up pretty good without even having proper nutrition back then; just ate clean and much less.

    However, tried it again (after one of my stim breaks) and with much more nutritional knowledge and got squat from it.

    I always laugh whenever someone (namely women at my office or my mother) talks about how a soda or coffee keeps them up at night or wired for a whole day and I say "I wish."

  23. I can drink a cappuccino and go right to bed after. Just for laughs, progress using tta so far has been 4 to 5 pounds lost since Monday. The prior week I was on vacation and had gained around 7 pounds, ans its almost gone already.

    lol I'm in the same boat as you (except I hate coffee lol). My weight the past 3 days has gone from 240->236.8->238. We'll see how it goes for the long haul. According to labs, my body should be in perfect condition to function properly, now, but I'll feel more confident when I get labs back next week to rule out other things.

  25. man you got me wanting to throw some things in just to see if it would do any good at all. I have a huge stash of supps I need to use up eventually. Stuff like heat and dcp etc.. But I'm torn, I dont know whether to try some of them and see if I can get a tiny bit of benefit out of them while trying to fix things, or if that is just a waste and I should wait until my thyroid problems are fixed and THEN use them up to get the real benefit.

    Maybe I'll wait a bit and see if you manage to get anything out of TTA. And I hope you do man.
