    Interesting to see how this plays out for you. I took 2 caps and couldn't leave for lunch for 30 mins. I Absolutely got light headed, lethargic, and had trouble focusing.

    Ate 150g carbs and I feel amped. Not stimmed out energy, just energy. I want to go lift something now. I did legs today and usually I struggle to get through my shift. I could go for a run and work a double right now.

    Dewey have you noticed anything regarding change in thirst? I know personally I can't get enough water but that may be related to the huge increase in carbs in my diet.

    No notable changes in thirst but I drink tons of water anyway. The carbs can do that though.

    Yes they can. I am also suspecting that the additional carbs/calories are bringing an increase in sodium In my diet. I am sleds thirsty as is, it just seems to be unreasonable latley.

    Day 11

    August 6th:

    1st dose: 1 cap before lunch with 78g of carbs
    2nd dose: 1 cap pre-bed around 9:45 PM. (about 3 hours after dinner)

    I ended up eating more carbs than usual at lunch as I was still hungry when I finished with my wrap and Greek yogurt and decided to also eat a green apple. I had already taken my SSv2 so it was too late to adjust the dose. I felt fine after lunch even with one pill, probably because there wasn't a ton of simple carbs in lunch.

    I took the second pill pre-bed as I really want to explore the effects of doing this more regularly. I woke up feeling/looking more dried out and could actually see better muscle definition. I have to tell you, it's nice to wake up to that! I was also very hungry when I woke up though and had to have more than just a shake before I left for work. I had a couple fried eggs to and that seemed to satisfy me.

    No real sides to speak of other than increased hunger in the AM after a pre-bed dose. I can live with that.

    Great. Remember some of the effects are cumulative so your extra apple at lunch is not going to set you back. Plus I use 2 caps per 150g meal which is a similar ratio. I personally notice a reduce food bloat, which is wonderful!

    Great feedback on the pre bed dosing. I always look drier when I wake up so this may not be something I would notice.

    What about muscle fullness, energy, or digestive issues? Any changes positive or negative?

    Muscles do seem fuller and more dense. I'm more vascular all the time and get amazing pumps in the gym. No real difference in energy overall except after heavy carb meals. There you notice a huge difference as I'm sure you have seen too. No carb crash where you feel like crap after having that big meal. No more digestive issues - thank God!

    SSV2 is great stuff so far and I could see making it a staple supplement. I would love to run a stack of SSV2, Decimate, and a stim-based burner to see what this could do on a cut.

    Gotta be careful.

    Like DCP at all?

    Salvia + decimate + PLCAR would be an awesome non-low stim stack (depending how AY effects you)

    Day 12

    August 7th:

    1st dose: 1 cap before lunch with 38g of carbs
    2nd dose: 1 cap before dinner containing 57g carbs

    This was a pretty normal day. Both meals were typical meals for my diet with no cheats and only clean carbs. I don't really feel anything (good or bad) when I use SSv2 this way. The times I notice it are when using it with high carb meal or when I use it pre-bed.

    I've got a BBQ at my house this weekend and I am going to need my SSv2. Burgers, dogs, baked beans, chips, etc. Thinks it's safe to take 3 SSv2's at once? I might need it before I consume 300g of carbs over the course of a few hours!

    Day 13

    August 8th

    1st dose: 2 caps before dinner containing around 130g carbs

    I only took one dose of SSV2 yesterday as I had a low-carb lunch. I had two caps before eating a couple bean and cheese burritos along with some chips and salsa (I know, here I go with the Mexican food again). This was a post-workout meal, but about 2 hours after working out. The effects were about the same in regards to not feeling overly full or feeling any kind of carb crash. I actually could have ate quite a bit more but knew I had already had enough.

    Still feeling good. Improved vascularity, especially in the mornings where I didn't really notice it as much before. Bathroom sides may be coming back to an extent but it's too early to tell. I'll keep you posted whether you want to hear about it or not.

    Day 14

    August 9th:

    1st dose: 1 cap before lunch containing 46g of carbs
    2nd dose: 1 cap before dinner containing 37g of carbs

    Pretty boring day diet wise so not as much immediate benefit from the SSV2. I am definitely starting to see that taking SSV2 before high carb meals (50g+) offers me the most noticeable benefit. I also notice solid effects when I take it pre-bed. This is not to say that SSV2 offers no benefit other times, just not an immediately noticeable benefit.

    I am having some bathroom issues again. I'm still going, but not as easily as I normally would. Don't rally know how else to say this, but what comes out is in bigger, harder pieces that are often uncomfortable to pass. Sorry, but that's what's going on. I will keep you posted whether you want to hear about it or not!

    Day 15

    August 11th:

    1st does: 2 caps about 20 minutes before embarking on a 2-4 hour eating extravaganza.

    I do not follow an IF diet, but I almost did yesterday. I worked out first thing in the morning and had a shake when I got home. I didn't eat again until around 1:00 PM when the BBQ at my house started. I did eat off and on until about 4:00 PM though and then all I had the rest of the day was a Quest Bar. I ate chips, a hot link, a cheeseburger, baked beans and some deviled eggs. Luckily it was 106 degrees outside and that helped kill my appetite. I overdid it on food but did not have anything other than water to drink and did not partake in dessert.

    I felt pretty decent all in all after pigging out. I am heavier on the scale this morning, but that's likely due to the 5,000 mg's of sodium I had yesterday. I would expect my weight to normalize over the next day or so.

    Bathroom issues still persist. Things are still flowing, just not smoothly. Water intake seems solid but I will keep an eye on it.

    Day 16

    August 12th:

    1st dose: 2 caps before late lunch containing 118g of carbs

    I worked out in the morning and kind of grazed throughout the morning. I ate my big meal for the day (spicy shrimp pasta) a little after 2:00 PM. My girlfriend and I both ate too much, but I felt fine afterwards. She kept complaining about how stuffed she was for hours while I was perusing the pantry for a snack. SSV2 really pays off for these really high carb meals. I guess the only downside to not feeling like crap after eating that many carbs is that you have to fight the urge to keep eating.

    Status Quo in the bathroom and I will leave it at that. Mostly for Aaron as he doesn't like it when I talk $hit.

    Even though it may not be dinner table worthy conversation. You should report any negatives and positives so that others using your log for research will have all the information possible.

    Day 17

    August 13th:

    1st dose: 1 cap before lunch containing 38g of carbs
    2nd dose: 1 cap before dinner containing 94g of carbs

    I didn't realize I was going to eat as much at dinner as I did, so I only took 1 pill beforehand. Had I known, I probably would have gone with 2. It seemed to help either way as I didn't feel full after eating a decent amount.

    I mentioned it yesterday, but you do have to be a little careful when eating big meals after taking SSV2. You won't have that full, bloated feeling and sometimes that's your signal to stop eating. You have to pre-portion your food so you don't end up overdoing it just because you don't feel full. It's not really a problem, just something to watch out for.

    Bathroom issues persist and what goes in is not coming back out in the same proportion. I have a feeling that one of these days I am going to suddenly be 5 lbs. lighter after a productive trip to the bathroom. I'm not completely stopped up, but things aren't flowing the way they normally would either.

    1 cap for 100g carbs is fine. Remember some of the effects are cumulative. Also 2 caps is just under 300mg na r ala. The first dose will still play some effect on the second meal.

    Do you feel more hungry or less full? What about weight gain / loss and body composition changes?

    Day 18

    August 14th:

    1st dose: 1 cap before lunch containing 46g of carbs
    2nd dose: 1 cap before post-workout meal (about an hour after) containing around 75g of carbs

    I haven't made a habit out of taking SSV2 post workout, but this was awhile after my workout and was more of a big meal than normal. I was still pretty hungry after that meal but went to bed that way since i was on point with my calories/macros for the day.

    Lets take a better look at the cumulative/ongoing effects of SSV2 up to this point:

    - Don't get full when eating high-carb meals. Don't get tired afterwards either.
    - I am more vascular both in and out of the gym.
    - I am not losing weight, but I am not gaining weight either. It's odd, because I have had some weekends where my caloric intake was well above maintenance and I should have added weight but didn't.
    - Instead of weight loss I am noticing some nice recomp results in the mirror. That's the best thing so far!

    The only other supps I have taken during this log are an ArA stack (X-Gels, ALCAR, etc.) pwo and Cissus. I would love to run SSV2 again along with Decimate and possibly a stimmed fat burner like Fat Free. I think that stack would lead to some amazing results!

    Dewey, I've been meaning to pick your brains in this and possibly convince you to make an experiment for the sake of SSv2 . You do know that one of the many uses of GDAs is reaching Ketosis faster, would you fancy trying this for some 4-5 days low carbing and then proceeding to testing the Urine with Ketostyx for Ketones?

    Just a suggestion, I have been curious as of the benefits of using SSv2 particularly for this purpose. !
