    Been drinking coffee as much as possible today.

    Sleep is something I never have issues with. Especially when I slept 7 hours straight and took Lipo PM night before. That is what's making this difficult to deal with. Something is causing it and I can't figure out what. I don't want to point fingers at one thing. It could be a combination of many things I guess.


  2. Day 12

    Supplements:
    2 AIS Agmatine with lunch, 2 with dinner (Starting to run low. Hope the new shipment comes in soon.)
    2 Fat Free in the AM, 1 Fat Free in the PM
    3 Lipotrophin PM prior to bedtime


    Diet:
    Calorie deficit

    Exercise:
    Cardio Elliptical (1211 calories)
    Volleyball for 45 minutes


    Comments:
    As you can see from my earlier posts, I had a tough day energy wise and I hate to fight from dozing off. I was also fighting a nagging headache from yesterday. Not sure what caused it. I came home and laid down for 2 hours. Of the 2 hours, I took a 1 hour nap. When I woke up, the headache was gone and I had more energy. I was able to put in a good cardio session. I also played a bit of volleyball. Good group of people. It was fun, although my legs were shot from elliptical.

    My quads are sore from running yesterday. It only tells me that even with all the cardio work, I am not putting in enough leg work. I will have to incorporate that in somehow. I was blessed good genetics for legs and I never really had to work it. I guess age is catching up with genetics.

    I can definitely see that I am carrying extra water. I also think I have also gained a little bit of weight. I am hoping it is recomp. My upper body looks much bigger. Prob due to heavier lifting. It could be my cortisol level rising after stopping Erase Pro. It could also be homeostasis. My body saying, OK lets pause for a bit. I need to continue doing what I am doing and not get disappointed if I don't lose anything this week.

    19 days to first target. Need to try to not get over confident. Maintain and lose and I should hit my target even with my body fighting back.

    One thought, I have been @ 237 lbs for about 5 years in the early 2000s. Like stocks, maybe this is my resistance and it might take a lot more work to break through psychologically and physically.

    Onto tomorrow.

    From nutraplanet write up

    Provides great energy and a pronounced "feel good" effect without an overreliance on heavy stimulants
    Doesn't stop "working" (or feeling like its working) within a matter of days or weeks.

    Most fat burners are thinly-disguised energy pills - they pump you full of adrenaline, and then quit working correctly after a few weeks.

    Basically the oep at 3-4 caps a day is super stim/caffeine... Fat free is virtually "stim free" it contains mild stims that are like a 2 on scale of 10, with oep being a 9-10.. I tried going from oep to a similar product like far free... I didn't last a day, by 5 pm I had a horrific headache and could barely move, I popped 2 oep n 30 mins later felt like new.. If Thr headaches r gone, I say stick with it and your energy levels will probably soonfollow..

  8. I am going to take Prometheus Rising for 5 days. While I am not looking to gain any size, high T is always good. Also, I am not convinced my shipment will arrive on time and I am running low in Agmatine. Will take 2 Agmatine lunch time and full dose of Prometheus prior to workout. Will try to not eat after lunch, so I am taking Prometheus on empty stomach. Again, all I am concerned about is getting my Agmatine dose in.

  9. Day 13 (3/13)

    Supplements:
    2 AIS Agmatine with lunch
    6 Prometheus Rising in the PM
    2 Fat Free in the AM, 1 Fat Free in the PM
    3 Lipotrophin PM prior to bedtime


    Diet:
    Calorie deficit

    Exercise:
    None


    Comments:
    Nothing of note other than getting over stim withdrawal (headaches and lethargy) and using Prometheus in place of Agmatine until my shipment arrive. I peaked at my weight and my weight is actually up several pounds for the first time in weeks. My upper body is bigger compared to start and I think its recomp. Will kill cardio rest of week to see if I can get back down to 237 or so this week. (by Saturday)

    I will see how the first week of Prometheus goes and may stay on it. No one is more schizophrenic than me when it comes to supplements I guess.

    When Fat free run is over, I hope to be at around 225 or so. I am staying on Agmatine. I will run 1 more bottle of Lipotrophin PM. I will also finish off with Erase Pro. When Erase Pro run is over (end of April), I hope to be under 220. If needed, some X-pel to get some water out for summer. Then spend the remaining 8 months this year and try to get under 200. (Hopefully without supplements. (Other than Agmatine)

    Maybe Fat Free will surprise me and get me there faster ????

    We shall see.

    I will be living on Quest bars for a while for breakfast. Loved the Brownie and vanilla almond and cinnamon roll. Getting coconut cashew, apple pie and peanut butter supreme. Nothing crazy. One bar per day. I don't think I can handle more than 19gm of fiber per serving.

    Love this stuff.

  10. Day 14

    Supplements:
    2 AIS Agmatine with lunch
    6 Prometheus Rising in the PM
    2 Fat Free in the AM, 1 Fat Free in the PM
    3 Lipotrophin PM prior to bedtime

    Comments:
    Where to start....where to start. Diet was on point. Strength up during lifting (160s last time, 170s today). Muscle endurance was excellent. Muscle pump was excellent. Energy was great and I had a bit of sweat going during lifting.

    I look in the mirror. I look like I have bowling balls for shoulders, biceps are full, triceps are cut, and chest looks massive. Why am I not happy ? I look below my lower chest and my belly looks bigger and I look like I am carrying a pool of water. I look bloated and heavy, so I weighed myself and confirmed it. I am up 4 lbs this week.

    Cheda warned me about Prometheus. I took a chance because`I wanted the Agmatine. If the water retention was going to be like when I took AT2, I was going to be OK with it. However, this change in appearance as significant. This is the look I had when I used to take PH. That is no longer my goal. I don't want to get bigger. I am looking to cut down on weight - muscle or not. Carrying additional weight will not be good for softball as I will put significant pressure on my legs.

    OK, to be fair to Prometheus, it did what it was supposed to. Make me stronger, gave me pumps and made me look bigger. I don't doubt some of this is placebo effect. Well, after 2 days, I am done with this supp. I will shelve it for future use when I am much lighter. With season only 2 1/2 weeks away, I cannot lose the progress I have made.

    Tracking says AI sports Agmatine will arrive tomorrow. Just in time.

  11. Hmm I don't think it could do thst after two days.. Usually takes about 5-7 to really notice it in my case. Certainly everyone is different though and if that's The only variable, can't Blame u for calling it out.. I'm going through it too.. Being mostly low carb though it's not so bad, but I know that when I stop, I will lose it within a few days. So will u

    Maybe it's that synergistic thing again....

    I had pretty easy time lifting 170s. I actually ran 12 sets. I definitely felt stronger today. Bloating was definitely obvious.

    I can only point to DAA in Prometheus as only change. No time to really study this. After today, I need to drop about 7 lbs in 2 1/2 weeks.

    Just ordered new softball bat and a new glove. Here we go ! Looking to get in 3 seasons this year and couple of all day tournaments.

    Me too.. Was very skeptical bc it's herbal, but can't argue with results... I'll probably work it in in the fall, can't risk it during spring/summer...

    The weird thing with me n prometheus is I am fluctuating from 158-162 depending on time of day n food intake... I am not gaining or losing weight really, even though I am not as cut ss I should or could be at 160, due to the obvious water retention. Kinda frustrating

    2 Fat Free in the AM, 1 Fat Free in the PM
    3 Lipotrophin PM prior to bedtime


    Diet:
    Calorie deficit

    Exercise:
    Cardio Elliptical (1,830 calories - 5 minute break at 1,189 calorie mark)
    Basketball Shooting for 20 minutes. Had to get inside 3 point line as my legs did not give me any push. They were done after cardio.


    Comments:
    Nice spring day. Great weather and great "scenery".
    Cardio was cake today. Full of energy and had a great sweat going. I only took a break to adjust my clothes as I was soaking. I feel less bloated and felt great all day. Fat Free....is that you coming along now ? Appetite suppression on Fat Free is strong as AT2 or OEP in my opinion. Sometimes, I did not even want to look at food.

    All my supps are in. Quick review on Quest bars.

    Coconut Cashew - Awesome, but there is that whey after taste
    Apple Pie - OK with whey after taste. Need to try to heat this one up next time.
    Peanut Butter Supreme - Awesome and little whey after taste.

    Weigh in scheduled for Saturday and also first softball practice on Saturday.

  16. Gotta look into these quest bars. Glad bloating Is down. I've got 9 or do days left on prom then it's gonna get really shredded over here

    Comments:
    Nothing major to report other than the visual confirmation of improving physique is really good for the mind. The muscle fullness and shape are definitely a change so far. After initial complaint about Prometheus, I have stayed on it. I guess the draw back to a phone app is that you may end up sharing your immediate thought too often and it may end up sounding like you are waffling too much. Oh well, I started this log to collect any and all reactions, thought out or immediate, so I will have to live with it.

    Immediate water gain has definitely gone down a lot.

    Onto next day.

    Comments:
    What a great day. Weather in the high 60s and sun is out. Great day to get the bats and gloves out. First day of practice was great. A lot of fun and almost everybody showed. Started with batting practice. I was in the outfield, so I got a lot ofrunning in. Then we played a simulated game and that was great as well. Offense is there, but we have to work on our defense more. Had some issues tracking flyballs, but that will come as we get back into swing of things.

    Great workout at the gym. As I continue to add weights to get back to what I used to lift, all exercises felt great and it felt like each movement was not wasted. Did not get a lot of pump or sweating. Probably due to softball practice as it probably depleted my sugar level and water level.

    Today was my cheat day and the meal of my choice was Cuban tapas. Bar-b-que ribs, octopus grilled, seafood sopa, pork empenadas, assortment of meat, smoked duck and cuban bread with sweet butter. Add in a dark draft, mojitos and corona chaser. I am not much of a drinker, so this was good enough for me. Getting tapas makes it easy to get a taste of many things without over eating too much.

    A lot of green in the city with people having a great time. My new favorite thing on a lady ? Cut off green t-shirt with black tights.

    OK, the most important update. I was up close to 4 lbs for some odd reason earlier in the week. No changes to diet or workout. I had to work really hard to get my weight down and I am glad I am showing another loss for the week. I am getting complements from everybody and it really feels great. Positive energy always makes it easier to keep doing what your doing.

    I am at 235.8 lbs. (Pace of about -4.5 lbs per week, but just -1.6 lbs in the last week) I now have only 0.8 lbs in the next 2 weeks to hit my first target. My dream short term goal would be to see if I can get under 230 lbs by end of month. This does not seem as easy as now there are some fluctuations in pace of weight loss. Hitting 233 lbs might be more realistic. I will have to kill it for the next 2 weeks to make this happen. Here we go now. Let's get it !

    Wanted to lift today, but I had car issues. Did not have time to workout dealing with this. If its resolved tomorrow, I will be back in the gym.
    Crazy DOMS today. Abs, back, lats and legs. I love it !

  24. Glad to see you are still kickin ass brosk!

    I had hella sleep problems when I first started Fat Free but they have mostly gone away now

    Thanks Flawed. I don't want to jinx it, but it's been amazing so far. Every supplement I tried has done what it was supposed to. I think appetite supplession from Fat Free is very strong. Also, I don't feel the body heat from Fat Free for some reason. Maybe body temp goes up for me when I experience stim related effects. Who knows, but you know I am not complaining.

    I feel very relaxed and calm and Fat Free seems to be working in the back ground. Kinds like Erase Pro for me. I did not notice how much it helped me until I stopped using it.

    Now that I am down a good deal in weight, I am even thinking about adding ab exercises.

    Waking up and seeing upper chest and shoulders and arms in shape (almost cut or cut as it can be at 235....LOL) gives me motivation everyday to continue, knowing rest of body will follow. (Especially abs)

    Looks like you are really killing it with Fat Free ! I think it's a winner so far.
