    Comments:
    Again, great sleep !
    Felt strong, so I worked my shoulders. Felt strong throughout. Best I felt doing this exercise since I started this in January. My strength is definitely back. Will try 160s next time with max of 200 at the end. Did cardio until they closed. My oblique and back are still weak, but improving again. Damn those spasms are painful.

    Thermo affect was back today. i was warm all afternoon. Damn I hate this when I am at work.

    Tried Quest bar for breakfast today with a banana. They are good....but oh man, do they settle in your stomach. All that fiber in it and you can literally feel it. Good diet food as I did not feel like eating lunch. I went later than normal. until tomorrow.

    Comments:
    Combining Days 6-7 comments here due to busy work schedule last couple days. So my big presentation day was yesterday and I had no time to really monitor diet or goto gym. I did OK taking my supplements for the most part. However, I did miss OEP dosing yesterday. My diet was clean but ate little over maintenance on day 6. On day 7, it was bad. Not enough time and opportunity to prepare or eat healthy although I did eat a salad for lunch (their chicken was full of sodium though). However, mix in crab pretzels, crab cakes and pizza with sugary apple cider and you have a making of a bloaty, water holding, full of fat diet that can't be good for you.

    So I spent all day on day 6 preparing my slides. I took a 2 hour nap at around 10 PM and then stayed up until 4 AM. Took some Lipotrophin PM and took a nap for 1 hour. It was risky in that I could have slept right through and missed my meeting.

    Well, I have one interesting observation to share. I have been taking Lipo PM for few weeks now and regardless of how many hours I have slept (whether its 4, 5, 8, or 9 hours), I wake up feeling rested or wake up as if I was in a deep sleep. I no longer have days where I start yawning in the afternoon at work. I used to do this when I have only slept for 4 hours or so the night before.

    Here is the kicker. Yesterday morning, after taking the final 1 hour nap, I fully expected to prepare for a long struggling day. I had a 3 hour drive each way to my meeting and a 5 hour meeting in between. I had one diet pepsi in the morning. I did not feel tired or felt like falling asleep until last night. I did not yawn all day. I have done something like this many times and it has always been a major challenge to stay awake after lunch and I always had trouble focusing due to lack of sleep in the afternoon. What gets me is not feeling like I had very little sleep.

    Am I crazy in crediting Lipo PM for all this ? I think I have valid reasons to think I should.

    What a great supplement. (For me anyway. It may not affect others in the same way)

    Anxious to get back to exercising. Curious to weigh in to see if I have gained any weight due to last couple days.

  4. Also, devil on my shoulder is insisting I open up the Prometheus Rising to see what it's like. LOL.

    Thanks. I plan on using it with Erase Pro in about 4-5 weeks. It's the curiosity that gets me. especially when it's sitting there unopened.

  8. Days 8

    Supplements:
    0 Erase Pro (none left)
    2 AIS Agmatine with lunch, 3 with dinner
    2 Oxyelite Pro prior to exercise, 2 Oxyelite Pro in the PM
    3 Lipotrophin PM prior to bedtime


    Diet:
    Calorie normal

    Exercise:
    Cardio Elliptical (1750 calories) no stopping at any point

    Machine Shoulder Press 11x8 (100, 160, 160, 160, 160, 160, 160, 160, 160, 180, 200 lbs)
    Machine Preacher Curls 5x8 (80 lbs)
    Machine Chest Flyes 1x10 (180 lbs)


    Comments:
    Had good day at work and went out with co-worker for lunch. No salad. I ate normal calories, but lot more carbs and not much protein. My body does not look that lean anymore and I look a little bloated. Gotta get back on the ball with my diet.

    Good bye Erase Pro. Until next time.

    I took all Agmatine with meals, so I only had OEP prior to workout. I had a great workout. I said I would try 160s and it was not bad at all. I finished all 160s in good form. I went up couple times to 180 and 200. Form on 180 was pretty clean, but 200 was not. I arched my back at rep 5 till finish. I think I will try 170s next time. Preacher curls were clean. I like to finish off biceps with heavy chest flyes with elbows but. Really felt it in my biceps. I did not have great pumps but I had great energy and strength. I pushed to the limit on cardio and hit 1750 calories in about 102 minutes. This was probably due to feeling guilty about lunch, but if I did not have the energy there is no way I could have stayed on that long. I feel drained and I love it !

  9. Holy hell on the calories... And 4 oep??? Label says do Not exceed 3 , bad boy! Haha.. No adverse effects?

    Yeah, It was amazing. I felt like I could go for hours. My legs started to get tired around 70-75 min mark. The guilt from yesterday and today made me want to knock at least 0.5 lb off today, so I kept going until I hit 1750. Remember, I am around 242 lbs, so the calorie counter goes faster for me than someone who is lighter.

    So hungry right now. I am going to try to sleep it off. Following your lead on IF to switch things up a bit. You haven't steered me wrong yet. Mine will be modified to 16 hours. That's 9 hours from now.

    As for OEP, the effect has faded a bit. I did not sweat much during cardio. I am sure I am not dosing it correctly, but you know why I need to modify. (That sweat thing....although I have npt felt the heat recently)

    Only have 2 more days worth anyway at 4 pills per day. No side effects so far.

    Sounds good. Yea I just had my cheat meal but I did 52 minutes cardio today bit it equaled 771 cals 5.03 miles. I got caught up after n couldn't have any food.. Only aminos for 4 hours after Thr cardio. I lost 4 pounds.... Ridiculous. I was 160 yesterday n 156 when I weighed myself AFTER dinner. But the cheat should push thst back to 160.

  12. Quick update following 4 OEP dosing from yesterday - 2 around 5 PM before gym and 2 late evening around 10 PM.

    I was able to fall asleep right away and woke up refreshed as usual. For those who have not read through the log, I am normally a deep sleeper and with addition of Lipo PM, I am able to sleep without issues even after taking stims or drinking coffee late at night.

    Will dose 4 today and tomorrow and start Fat Free on Sunday.

    Calorie deficit

    Cardio Elliptical (1330 calories)


    Comments:
    Had a good sweat going during cardio today. I did cardio after dinner. I was full of energy, but my legs were getting weak around 30 minute mark. I pushed on and luckily finished it at the same pace.

    I feel leaner and lighter, but when I look in the mirror I no longer have the dry look. I have learned to accept it. Eventually I will get it with or without Erase Pro if I continue to work hard. All my clothes are loose and I do feel great. Tomorrow is my scheduled weigh in day. From tomorrow, I have 3 more weeks to reach my goal of 235 lbs.

    IF is tough. I am so hungry right now. I hope to fall asleep soon. I went to the supermarket to pick up some toiletries and had to fight the urges to pick up anything and everything. Cookies, candy, salami, chicken wings, prociutto,...etc.

    Onto tomorrow.

  16. Hey man the urges to eat r definitely tough when u first start off and even once ur used to it they can get crazy bad during intranet training. Some tips::

    Sugar free gum (I swear by stride spark bc it has b vitamins.. Helps amazingly) I chew prob 2-3 pieces a day...

    Green tea when I am hungry at night (after dinner) kills cravings and makes u pee!

    Incorporate cheat meals! Once every week or two (every two until u reach target weight) you earn it and it keeps u honest during the week bc u know u get to splurge later

    Greek yogurt plain non fat mixed with instant jello pudding mix (sugar/fat free) tastes like cake frosting and satisfies cravings unstably! I have one almost every night.

    Good stuff as always. I already incorporate cheat meals, so I don't plan on stopping that anytime soon.

    However, I will definitely try the gum and greek yogurt/sugar and fat free pudding mix thing.

    Comments:
    Great night of sleep. Had a good sweat going again today at the gym. Felt strong on all lifts. Decent pumps, but not spectacular.

    Ate a cheat meal today. Grilled pork chops (bone-in), mash potatoes, stuffing, garlic broccoli and a nice strong martini. Ate a little later today, so IF will last till 1 PM (daylight savings jump forward).

    I weighed in today. I was very happy with what I saw. I am not going to get too excited, but 2 straight weeks of great results at a pace higher than first 2 months. I am only 2.4 lbs from my first target and I still have 21 days remaining to hit it. I don't have the words other than I have to give thanks and continue to work hard and not let up. I am trying to stay grounded because there is no way I can stay on this pace, can I ???

    Starting App Nut Fat Free tomorrow in place of OEP. I am done with my bottle of OEP and I must say, I am happy with what it has provided me as part of this stack.

    Onto tomorrow. Let's get this !

    Comments:
    I had a great lifting day. I lifted until my arms gave out. I did not get the last 320 lbs, but I am OK with that. My arms were jelly and I know I gave it my all. I ran on track...well ran and walked.....for the first time in long time. It was very windy and chilly, so it was not easy. It was however productive. My back and lats have some DOMS. I will have to repeat my back workout again. I love DOMS. I know I have worked my muscles and it is a good feedback mechanism.

    I took Fat Free for the first time today. I did not feel like eating after taking Fat Free. I did eat on normal schedule though. If this is what's to come, it should really help during weekdays.

    My body is harder and my muscles are full. However, I do not have the dry cut look anymore. I think I am holding water a bit. As stated earlier, I can live with this until I get to a certain weight. Then I will worry about looking more cut.

    I have had headaches all day. I am not going to attribute it to anything unless, it becomes chronic. I probably did not drink enough water.

    Onto tomorrow.

  21. Slept for 7 hours, but I have serious lethargy right now. This is a first time in a long time that I have felt like this. I feel tired and sleepy. I don't feel like eating and I am not hungry.

    I did take an ibuprophen last night right before bed because I had headaches.

    Not sure if this is due to interactions with supps or if it is Fat Free. I will try not to speculate and hope this passes.

    I've read that ibu interferes with receptors in the brain that r responsible for sleep and also muscle recovery , actually any NSAID does..

    Thanks man. I've taken it at night before, but have not felt like this the next day. Especially disappointing since I've had a good run of restful sleep regardless of number of hours I slept.

    The rest of the afternoon is going to be tough.

    I am feeling hungry now. Hope that is a good sign.
