    Natestreo Summer Shred! --- Clen/T3/Keto/Helladrol/AnaBeta Elite/Erase Pro/AT2


    Intro: Okay everyone, this is my first ever log. I am eager to do this for a multitude of reasons. I am still relatively new to the AM community but have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent here thus far. I am looking forward to receiving feedback and support as I undergo this process. I will try to pictures along the way to keep progress up to date, and will post starting pictures. Lets get it started!

    Background: I am a 20 year old college student at Eastern Kentucky University. I am a PGA PGM Major, otherwise referred to as professional golf management. I am not your stereotypical golfer, quite the opposite! As part of my major, I wil be traveling to Santa Barbara, California to spend the summer as an intern at a local golf course. While in California I will join a gym and continue to workout, although my time will also be shared with work. I have always been a "fat kid" so to speak and was never comfortable in my own skin until I took the time to do something about it. Over the past couple years I have dedicated a lot of my time and energy towards improving my physique to something that was acceptable to me and made me feel better about myself. I began my journey at 258lbs and God only knows what percentage of bodyfat. Currently I am 5'9" 186.5lbs and between 9.5-10% bodyfat (last official measurement on BodPod was 10.2, but i've lost some fat since then). My lowest weight since beginning my body transformation was 175lbs on the number, before I spent the past winter bulking up and replacing the muscle that I had lost oer long periods of time cutting. I have extensive knowledge on supplementing. Currently I have a ton of different supplements that I have obtained one way or the other over time. In addition, I have used a large amount of different supplements in the past and know how my body responds to each. If anyone has questions as to what similar products I have used or anything of that sort, please ask. I would be happy to draw any comparisons that I am able.

    Goals: I am working to drop bodyfat percentage further in an effort to acquire the allusive 6pack. I am not sure what weight or bodyfat percentage this will be for me, just going to play it by the mirror! Also, I do not want to lose muscle mass as I lose fat mass. Weight loss will be slow and methodical to prevent muscle loss, as I do not enjoy bulking and dont want to replace lost muscle again. Lesson learned from losing weight too quickly once before. For sake of measurement, lets say I want to be 7% bodyfat approximately at the conclusion of this log.

    Supplements: As mentioned in the title, I will be using several PES products. AnaBeta Elite, Erase Pro, Alpha T-2. Also, I will be using bulk DAA powder from Nutraplanet. In addition, I will use a small amount of OEP at the beginning of this log and will finish the log with Clen. I am attaching an excel spreadsheet that has everything mapped out over time for easy viewing. Please download/view the file and give me feedback. Also, I would like for everyone to see how I have the supplements laid out over time so any followers will have better understanding of my plans

    Diet:I currently follow a LeanGains protocol, somewhat. I do not eat over maintenance calories at any point during the diet, as leangains is meant to be based on my own understanding. I track each thing I eat every day on my iPhone using an app that has proven to be very accurate (about.com calorie counter, I think). Training days I will have 1900 calories and rest days will be 1500 calories. My maintenance calorie level is about 2900 calories. As long as I am not losing muscle mass I will push the limit of calorie restriction to maximize fat loss. Attached is a picture of my daily diet that I printed out to keep in my wallet. This shows my normal meal timing as well as macros.

    Training: I currently train 5 days per week with 2 days rest. Rest days are subject to change based on my schedule, but usually come before and after leg day. One rest day will always be used on Sunday, as I believe this is meant to be a day of rest. I follow a training regimine that I have designed myself. I usually like to workout as early in the morning as possible, as this allows my first meal of the day to be my post workout meal. Training of this type will be fasted, as the leangains protocol. Depending on my schedule, workout times may vary. I will also be doing cardio each day after weight training. I will track my reps and weight for each exercise every day.

    Sunday/Friday - REST (subject to change)

    I will also be doing cardio after each weight training session. I usually like to do some type of interval training until I reach 300 calories expenditure. This usually is about 18-20 minutes of cardio.

    Conclusion I hope to reach my goals, obviously. But also, I hope to encourage others and learn from others along the way. Great community on AM.com! If anyone would like for me to add anything, let me know! I would be happy to track anything else in addition to what I am already recording!


    EDIT: As of 5/22/12 I will begin a Carb Cycling program that will be exactly like or very similar to the image posted below. This change is coming in the middle of the AE/AT2/MS portion of the stack due to scheduling conflicts being created by work.

    Lotta supplements, and I like the other aspects. I think this will be a successful cut. In MY experience I have had good experiences with the occasional re-feed when going as low calorie as you are. Something to consider...I know the "fear" is that one will go too far (doesn't mean you should spend the day eating pizza and snickers), but if well thought out it can work well.

    Here are my starting pictures. Taken today on an empty stomach, before training. I always liked to do an ab workout before taking pics, it makes your abs look much better. But for better comparisons I will not do this!


    I had a terrible time taking a picture of my back/bicep. This crappy pic will have to do, haha. Let me know if anyone would like to see a different pose or anything! Im having trouble managing these pics, also. Sorry for the repeats and poor organization.

    Finally got everything organized and just added a screenshot of my excel spreadsheet that lays out my supplement plan. Wasnt able to upload the excel spreadsheet itself, this was the next best thing.

    Thanks for following, Kevinhy! And Geoforce, I have managed to lose about 4lbs of fat while gaining muscle mass during the past few months. I posted BodPod results of this showing the body composition changes. Those results were done with this exact training and diet to only one exception, I was consuming a diet of 2200/1800 instead of 1900/1500. I reduced the calories to speed up the fat loss.

    Okay everyone. I had originally intended on starting this log yesterday but did not get time to do so. However, I still have all of my logged information ready to input, just a day late! I am currently at the "week 1" phase as of right now. It is worth mentioning, I have used OEP in the past and LOVE it. I have about a half of a bottle, just enough to run 2 a day for 2 weeks, sitting on my counter. Thus the reasoning in using OEP for 2 weeks with AnaBeta Elite. Also, the 2 weeks of AnaBeta right off the bat are the last 2 weeks remaining in my bottle that I have been using for the past 2 weeks. So by the time I have used all of the AnaBeta Elite that I plan to use during this log, I will have used it for 8 weeks total (not necessarily straight because of the week off for traveling). Anyways, heres my information from Monday!

    Weighed in at 187.4lbs this morning. Managed to get to the gym at about 6am. I love not having classes start until 10am! Workouts are posted in the order I completed them. Im focusing on developing other areas of my chest and using more dumbbells than I have ever done in the past, so I started off on dumbbells and didnt get to bench press until a little later into the workout.

    Incline DB Press: 40lb x 12, 50lb x 8, 60lb x 8, 70lb x 8
    Decline DB Press: 50lb x 12, 60lb x 8, 70lb x 8, 80lb x 8
    Flat DB Press: 70lb x 8, 80lb x 8, 90lb x 8
    Bench Press: 135lb x 15, 205lb x 8
    DB Fly: 30lb x 12, 40lb x 8, 40lb x 8
    Dips: 15, 12
    Cardio: 18 minutes, 300 calories, stairmaster intervals.

    Chest was super pumed after the first three DB exercises. Im really liking hitting my chest from a little bit different angle/method than normal. I hope to develop it more evenly, as I feel the middle of my chest is much thicker than the top and bottom. Chest was absolutely wrecked by the time I got to bench press, but thats what we want!

    Diet:
    Meal 1 60% (postworkout) - Large Bagel, 4x Turkey Burger (2 of which were on the bagel for a sandwich), 3x cup raw broccolli, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 2 slices swiss cheese. 1400 calories, 95g Carbs, 46g Fat, 158g Protein

    Meal 2 20% - 2 slices of Ezekiel Bread, 4oz Tilapia. 288 Calories, 30g Carbs, 3g Fat, 32g Protein

    Meal 3 20% - 2 slices of Ezekiel Bread, 4oz Tilapia. 288 Calories, 30g Carbs, 3g Fat, 32g Protein

    Snacks: 1x Intense Dark Twilight 72% cacao (Ghiradelli), 1x Rice Krispie Treat (homeade). 150 calories, 21g Carbs, 6g Fat, 1g Protein

    Total: 1826 Calories, 146g Carbs, 55g Fat, 191g Protein.

    I wasnt really good with my diet today. Had a rice Krispie treat that was guilted upon me (long story). I will regulary have one cube of chocolate, though. This will be a common treat to curb my appettite for sweets. At only 50 calories, its not at all bad and I calculate it into my daily intake when I have it. I dont usually cheat on my diet. Meals are kept clean and healthy, your only cheating yourself when you cheat, right?

    Time to update training and diet for today! I certainly hope that at least a small group of people will follow this!

    4/24/12

    Training: Today was arms day. On Tuesday and Thursday I have an 8am class that usually prevents me from getting to the gym at 6am. I got to the gym at about 11 today, which set me back an hour on my daily eating schedule. No big deal, just roll with it! Weighed in at 186.5lbs today, down slightly from yesterday. I have been very dry as of the past couple weeks. Definitely something I have noticed from AnaBeta Elite.

    Seated MILT Press: 25's x 12, 35's x 10, 70's x 10, 70's x 10 (Performed on a smith machine. 25's = 25lbs on each side. 70's = 70lbs each side)
    Front Fly: 25lb x 12, 35lb x 8, 50lb x 8
    90 Lat Fly: 20lb x 10, 20lb x 10
    Rear Fly: Substituted this exercise for a cable exercise. Will update once I know what the exercise is called exactly, I know what it works and why I use it but do not know what everyone would commonly refer to it as.
    DB Shrug: 75lb x 15, 75lb x 15
    Cardio: 19mins stairmaster intervals, 300cal

    Training had my shoulders pumped nicely. I love seeing the vascularity in my upper shoulders when doing a shoulder workout. Especially vascular when doing shrugs, love seeing that people stop what they are doing to watch me do something! Maybe I just have a big head at times, haha. Good workout today. You will notice the longer you follow, sometimes I stop at 2 sets of a particular exercise and sometimes I would do much more. Also, I will fluctuate on lifting heavy or lifting for extra reps, I listen to my body and try to exhaust the muscle I am working one way or another. Since my primary goal is not to be gaining muscle, I will not be super strict on what rep range and weight I am doing. However, for the most part I like to lift heavy and go for about 4 sets.

    Diet: Another day that I went over my calories, although barely. I am unable to buy more groceries for my dorm due to moving out at the end of this week, so I am limited in my selection. Specifically, my protein intake is taking a hit because of the lack of meat availability in my dorm. As long as my calories stay within 100 calories give or take for the next week, I wont complain too much. But definitely do not like it when my diet is not almost exactly what I had layed out for a day. Argh!

    Meal 1 60% (postworkout) - Large Bagel, 5oz Roast Beef, 3 Cups Raw Broccoli, 2 tblspoon Peanut Butter, 1 Slice Swiss Cheese, 1 cup skim milk, 2 scoops protein powder. 1305 calories, 116g carbs, 35g fat, 125g protein

    Meal 2 20% - 1/3 Cup Brown Rice, 1 tblspoon Natural Peanut Butter, 4oz Tilapia. 319 Calories, 24g Carbs, 9g fat, 30g Protein

    Meal 3 20% - 1 Slice Ezekiel Bread, 1tblspoon Natural Peanut Butter, 1 scoop protein powder. 340 Calories, 22g Carbs, 13g Fat, 32g Protein

    Total: 1960 Calories, 162g Carbs, 57g Fat, 187g Protein.

    If you cant tell, i'm trying to use the jar of peanut butter that I have before I move out of my dorm. I hate wasting food, would like to use what I have already puchased. Also, I had been doing well for a long time about not having to use protein powder to supplement my protein intake. However, in an effort to not purchase additional protein sources I am using protein powder to increase my intake slightly. Calories are being dominated by way too much fat, due to trying to use the peanut butter. However, still close to the daily goal of calories each day; although, with a decreased protein intake.

    Also, if anyone is paying really close attention they would notice that I am posting a completed day of training and diet before my last meal of the day was suposed to have been scheduled. At times I will consume my meals a little bit ahead of schedule, if I am hungry, but I do stay strict to not taking in any calories after 7pm, when my fast begins. This is a good example of not overthinking it, as I believe many people do when trying to do LeanGains.

    Thinking I'm going to pause this log unless more people become interested. I don't really want to take the time to do this if nobody is following it.

    Guess I'll give this one more day to see if anyone wants to follow along! Keeping my fingers crossed, maybe there is something I can do to enhance this log and add interest to someone/group of people?

    I weighed in today at 185.5lbs, down a pound from yesterday. I know im not losing water weight because I am currently very dry and have been doing weight training/diet for an extended period of time, no reason the weight loss would be water all of a sudden. So, seems like the AnaBeta Elite is much stronger at fat loss than I expected. Of course, I am taking a thermogenic with it. But my results in the past with OEP have not yielded a sudden drop in weight the first day taking it. Thus, I think its safe to attribute the weight loss to AnaBeta Elite.

    Training:
    Lat Pulldown: 120 x 12, 160 x 8, 180 x 12, 200 x 12
    CG LPD: 140 x 12, 160 x 8, 180 x 8, 180 x 8
    Low Row: 160 x 12, 200 x 8, 220 x 8
    DB Row: 100 x 10, 100 x 10
    UH BB Row: 70 x 12, 70 x 12, 70 x 12
    Deadlift: 135 x 15, 225 x 8, 305 x 8
    Cardio: 175 calories, 10 minutes, Stairmaster interval

    Back workout had me exhausted today. Keeping this log has made me stay accountable to the routine and has me doing every set. I dont wanna look like a slacker! As a result, my body gave out early on cardio. Due to the low calorie level, I wasnt willing to push it too hard and risk losing muscle due to overtraining. Keep in mind, this is fasted training!

    Diet: Due to my weight being lower than normal today and my energy levels seeming to plummet, I decided to do a refeed day and give my body a chance to recover from the extended period of time under low calories. I ate mostly clean food, to the exception of a small piece of chocolate cake. I ate a crap ton of calories today, though, and dont feel like typing each thing I ate individually. Instead, i'll all my daily totals. Fat content is mostly made up of peanut butter, felt like I added it to everything today. Carbs were mainly ezekiel bread and fruits. Protein came from whole foods almost entirely, minus about 75g.

    Total: 5608 Calories, 611g Carbs, 184g Fat, 390g Protein

    Its worth mentioning, I can be a bottomless pit when it comes to eating. I'll always be "fat kid" at heart, despite how low my bodyfat percentage may ever reach! However, I couldnt ever consume this many calories and not feel bloated and full of water, before. AnaBeta Elite definitely allows me to feel that I am staying dry and hard, despite the high calorie intake during this refeed. Good stuff, especially for those who may want to do a lean bulk, or any bulk, for that matter.

    Updated the Log info in a couple areas.

    1. Diet had a small error. Had my Meal #1 total calories listed as 1300 instead of 1100 as they should have been. All other information on diet is accurate, I recalculated all of it today to make sure.

    2. Updated my training routine. I sat down a few hours ago and adjusted my routine. The routine that I had been using is a routine I made up several months ago. I wanted to change the routine to keep my body guessing and figured that at the beginning of this log, minus two days, it was a good opportunity to do so. Sorry for throwing anyone off that may have been looking at lift progressions! Also, I tried to add more compound movements in some areas.

    Definitely. Not something I would shoot for on a daily basis, and not something I was shooting for during yesterday's refeed. I usually just eat however much of any clean food that I want during a refeed day. Just so happened to come out to that much!

    Meat > other food.

    Can't wait to update my training from today! Had a killer workout after switching up my routine and following the refeed day. Sitting here typing this with a monstrous pump in my biceps nearly an hour and a half after my workout!

    Just gotta finish my eating for the day and I'll update!

    Thanks for the encouragement! Hearing about your stack has me especially pumped! Since I'm starting my log at ~9.5% percent I would hope to get down to 7% or a little less just as you have!

    I weighed in today at 185.5lbs, down a pound from yesterday. I know im not losing water weight because I am currently very dry and have been doing weight training/diet for an extended period of time, no reason the weight loss would be water all of a sudden. So, seems like the AnaBeta Elite is much stronger at fat loss than I expected. Of course, I am taking a thermogenic with it. But my results in the past with OEP have not yielded a sudden drop in weight the first day taking it. Thus, I think its safe to attribute the weight loss to AnaBeta Elite.

    Training:
    Lat Pulldown: 120 x 12, 160 x 8, 180 x 12, 200 x 12
    CG LPD: 140 x 12, 160 x 8, 180 x 8, 180 x 8
    Low Row: 160 x 12, 200 x 8, 220 x 8
    DB Row: 100 x 10, 100 x 10
    UH BB Row: 70 x 12, 70 x 12, 70 x 12
    Deadlift: 135 x 15, 225 x 8, 305 x 8
    Cardio: 175 calories, 10 minutes, Stairmaster interval

    Back workout had me exhausted today. Keeping this log has made me stay accountable to the routine and has me doing every set. I dont wanna look like a slacker! As a result, my body gave out early on cardio. Due to the low calorie level, I wasnt willing to push it too hard and risk losing muscle due to overtraining. Keep in mind, this is fasted training!

    Diet: Due to my weight being lower than normal today and my energy levels seeming to plummet, I decided to do a refeed day and give my body a chance to recover from the extended period of time under low calories. I ate mostly clean food, to the exception of a small piece of chocolate cake. I ate a crap ton of calories today, though, and dont feel like typing each thing I ate individually. Instead, i'll all my daily totals. Fat content is mostly made up of peanut butter, felt like I added it to everything today. Carbs were mainly ezekiel bread and fruits. Protein came from whole foods almost entirely, minus about 75g.

    Total: 5608 Calories, 611g Carbs, 184g Fat, 390g Protein

    Its worth mentioning, I can be a bottomless pit when it comes to eating. I'll always be "fat kid" at heart, despite how low my bodyfat percentage may ever reach! However, I couldnt ever consume this many calories and not feel bloated and full of water, before. AnaBeta Elite definitely allows me to feel that I am staying dry and hard, despite the high calorie intake during this refeed. Good stuff, especially for those who may want to do a lean bulk, or any bulk, for that matter.
    On refeeds drop the fat to as low as possible while amping up carbs. No need to increase protein unless you need extra cals.
    Just my opinion and what worked great for me.
    Good luck and excited to see the end results

    I might have to start planning the refeeds more carefully. As of now I just eat as much as I want of clean foods, I make sure to record everything, but I don't have a plan as to what I'm eating ahead of time. Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks for the kind words bro! I've worked hard for my lbm! Although it comes easier to me because of genetics, still takes a lot of work. Good luck on your lean bulk!

    Okay, i've been excited to post todays info all day. Had a 2 hour drive home from college to spend the weekend at home, delayed my posting just a bit! Weighed in at 187.5 today, +2lbs from yesterday. This is as a result of yesterdays refeed and the water I am holding (I am very susceptible to holding water). Im not holding nearly as much water as normal following a refeed, though. I wonder if this has anything to do with AnaBeta Elite? Definitely could feel that my strength was up today and my body had responded well to the refeed. Amazing how listening to your body usually works in your favor! I expect to have this extra few pounds of water shed off in the next couple days. Nothing to worry about!

    Training:
    EZ-Bar Curls: 70x12, 70x10, 80x8, 80x8, 100x3
    Close Grip Barbell Bench Press: 65x12, 95x10, 115x8, 135x8, 185x5
    Incline DB Curl: 20x12, 20x10 30x8, 30x6, 20x8
    Skull-Crushers: 60x12, 70x10, 80x8, 90x8, 90x6
    Hammer Curl: 12.5x12, 20x10, 30x8, 30x8, 15x10
    Dips: 26 (failure)
    Chin-Ups: 12 (failure)
    Cardio: 300 calories, stairmaster intervals, 18minutes

    Training was awesome today. Definitely glad that I went ahead and changed up my routine when a good opportunity had arised. The extra volume and addition of some exercises that are more compound than what I had been doing was awesome. I hate doing routines that are based on a ton of isolated movements, the workout I was doing wasnt as well designed as this one is, IMO. This was my first time ever doing close grip bench press, I started off pretty light to give myself a chance to feel it out, quickly realized that this this is a lift I can go pretty heavy on and will have lots of room for progression.

    One of the things I loved about the orignial AnaBeta was the increased vascularity. It was so noticeable that someone asked me in the gym what gear I was on, not even asking whether or not I was on gear, just wanting to know what kind. They said they could tell I was on gear because my vascularity was insane. This was the highest compliment i've ever had in the gym, because of course, I was not on gear! My vascularity is every bit as good on AnaBeta Elite as it was on the orignial AnaBeta. Definitely liking that! I'll try to post a pic I took during the arm workout today! And did I mention the pumps on this stuff are crazy?! I usually always get a pump due to my training. However, the difference in my pumps with and without AnaBeta Elite is the amount of time the pump lasts. My pump is gone 20 minutes later without AnaBeta Elite, I was pumped an hour and a half later with it! Definitely an awesome feeling.

    Diet:
    Meal 1 (60%): Bagel, 2 Chicken Breast, Summer Squash w/ Zucchini (mixed veggies), Banana, 1 cup of Broccoli, 2tbsp natural peanut butter. Calories: 1296, Carbs 118g, Fat 29g, Protein 130g

    Meal 2 (20%): Banana, Chicken Breast, Summer Squash
    Calories: 377, Carbs 36g, Fat 5g, Protein 45g

    Meal 3 (20%): 3/4 Cup Chili Con Carne, 1 Cup Cottage Cheese (lowfat)
    Calories: 341, Carbs 22g, Fat 9g, Protein 38g

    Daily Total: Calories: 2014, Carbs 176g, Fat 43g, Protein 213g

    I'm not overly happy with my diet during the past few days (not referring to the intentional refeed). Due to moving out of my dorm very soon and being unable to make my own food, my selection is limited to what the EKU cafeteria has made for a given day. Some days they have food that is decent, others they seem to have nothing. I wasnt happy eating cottage cheese and chili for a meal today, although it fits into my macro's decently, it also has a ton of sodium. I will likely have a harder time shedding off the 2lbs of water I was already holding due to this meal. Also, i've consistently been over my daily calories and not hitting my macros as I would like, due to the limited selection. I could always undereat, but I am already on a very low calorie level for my size and do not want to risk losing muscle mass, especially since I do leangains and fast as well as undergo fasted training. I dont set specific macro levels and specific calorie levels for my own amusement, I expect to follow them very strictly! Although 100 calories above or below is not the biggest deal in the world, it still aggravates me. At least the overture of calories today was due to the slightly higher than planned protein level.

    Conclusion: Good day of training. Tomorrow is a scheduled rest day. As i'm spending the weekend at home with my bros I'll be watching the NFL Draft and playing TONS of Madden 12. My boys and I have had an offline franchise we've played in the most up to date madden every year since Madden 10. We usually play through 8-10 seasons before the next madden is released, we have no lives!

    Since tomorrow is a rest day that also means the calorie count for tomorrow is much different. As the leangains protocol calls for, I will have carbohydrates cycled down and fats increased with total calories lower. 1500 calories tomorrow. Definitely a struggle for me! Discipline is key!

    How does everyone else spend their rest day?

    Just saw that my package I had ordered from Nutraplanet came while I was at school. Got my Bulk BCAA, DAA and new tub of MGN Cinnamon Roll Protein.

    I had been finishing the last 2 servings of my old formula Xtend before I got this Bulk Modern BCAA. I actually did not have any BCAA's during my workout today, used the last serving yesterday. Eager to try this Bulk BCAA out. First thing I notice, though, is that there isnt a scooper. Anyone have an idea how to accurately dose the BCAA's without a 10g (I believe is the dosage) scooper?

    Also, I cannot wait to try this cinnamon roll protein! Had another brand's cinnamon roll protein at the arnold classic this spring and fell in love. Was so excited to see that cinnamon roll was an option when I purchased a new tub!

    Maybe a 60/20/20 ratio of carbs/protein/fat?

    Also wondering how many total calories I should shoot for and how often I should schedule a refeed? As of now I only take a refeed day whenever my body feels like it really needs it. Ive never planned a refeed, sorry for all the questions!

    Planning your re-feed is important. The times I dont, it ends up being a all you can eat sushi type day. 12 rolls and 16 muscles later im asking myself if i need the last 8 rolls and 8 muscles, lol. Not to mention the tempura ice cream 0_0

    Just experiment with your ratios to see what suites you the best. You dont need a lot of carbs to refill glycogen storage so you dont need 500+ carbs (IMO)
    My "low" carb days are: P-300g C-115-130 F-100 with refeed being P-300g C-300g F<30. Ill run 3-4 days "low" then re-feed, then 3-4 days "low" and repeat, etc. Im using that as of right now and will most likely bump up my carb intake on "low" carb days when my body adjusts and i gain some more muscle mass.
    Log it, analyze it, then adjust.

    BTW, i treat re-feed days and "cheat" days separately. With my cheat meals, I just eat my typical day macros, but dont count the calories for the cheat meal. IMO, the boost in cals tricks the body and keeps me mentally sane.
