Fist dose 6:00 AM fasted. Had an all day meeting for work so basically just sit in a chair until 4:00 and then an hour in traffic.
Appetite was under control but I was definitely hunger by 11:30 when pizza and wings arrived for lunch, breakfast for me. Limited myself to 6 wings and 2 slices of the thin crust pizza with chicken & veggies.
Second dose was taken around 10:00, I seem to get a better overall appetite control and energized feeling from dosing 4-5 hours after first rather than 6-7.
Arrived home in the evening and ate a peach and 2 scoops syntha6 Mochachinno mixed with coffee and chocolate coconut water then went for a trail run with a friend. Only did 3.8 miles but hit mostly all hills with plenty of sprints up them.
Made a pot of curried ground lean beef with plain greek yogurt, zucchini, onion, garlic, red bell pepper, fresh green chilis, fresh serrano peppers, spinach and green onions with a small serving of jasmine rice. Topped that off with a couple shots of Fireball cinnamon whiskey.
Overall: still good appetite control after 2 weeks and good, stable energy. Notice getting a little worn out at times before an evening workout but once I am a few minutes into the activity I seem to get very energized anda little extra euphoric after. Me likey.

First dose on waking at 6:00 AM fasted. No hunger developing until around noon.
Packed up some tupperware containers of various food stuffs and a couple bottles of water and drove up to Mt. St. Helens.
Stopped at a view point 1/2 hr or so before arriving to get a light breakfast in: some ground beef curry and veggies with 1/2 cup rice. Arrived at destination around 12:30. There is a trail there, Ape Canyon Trail that climbs 1400 or so feet in over 4.5 miles, so I ran that. 9 miles round trip with an average pace of 9:50, not bad for that length on that terrain. Was a little fatigued and sore so I thought I might only hike but once I got moving on the trail energy just kicked in and I felt like a million. The beautiful views didn't hurt.
Second dose was taken about 11:00 AM. Hunger stayed pretty well under control for the rest of the day but I obviously needed more food after burning over 1200 cals on my workout. Went over calorie goal and ended up at around maintenance. My body was telling me it needed it.
Overall: Appetite control still impressive and I really like the energy/euphoria during hard runs. Waist size hasn't changed since last weekend but a appear slightly leaner overall and vacularity has increased in calves, arms and chest, even seeing some pop up over bladder area. Weight has actually increased and my lifts have stayed strong.

Day 16 & 17
Couple of days at maintenance to recoup and get ready for the week back at work. Dosing stayed the same, as did appetite control and energy levels.
Did a back workout in the morning of the first day with a short 3 mile run in the evening. Second day did shoulders, chest & tri's in the morning and an 8 mile run in the evening.
Looking forward to a nice week back at work and doing Toughmudder on Saturday the 29th. Woot!

Back to work. First dose 5 AM fasted, second 11:00 and breakfast at 12:00. Appetite was under control throughout the day and I had no problem meeting my calorie deficit goal.
Good energy and focus throughout day. Supposed to be a rest day but I needed to do something in the evening so: burpees, jump rope, lunges, lawnmowers, wind sprints etc. for about 35 minutes. High intensity for 1 minute then walk a minute rinse repeat. Felt great.
To bed a little early for some good rest.
Overall: appetite and energy levels still right where I need them to be which is great for any diet. Can't speak of any actual increased fat loss yet but as mentioned the mirror shows me slowly recomping while the scale stays stagnant.

Fist dose 5:00 AM fasted, second at 10:30 with breakfast around 12:30. Appetite suppression was pretty evident in the afternoon after some food and the evening after training but much less in the AM. May need to start dosing higher, maybe 2 then 1.
Trained around 5:00 PM, back & biceps followed by 2 mile jog to the school track, HIIT for 1.5 miles (jog straights, sprint corners) then 2 mile jog home. Had great energy and feeling pretty euphoric.
Overall: energy and mood lift still nice, appetite suppression reduced. May need dose increase or might just be my body craving a refeed. Might do both.

First dose 5:00 AM fasted then decided to do a refeed couple hours later so I didn't take a second dose.
Did shoulders, chest & tris in the evening followed by a 3 mile jog.
Ended up at over 6k calories, 726g carbs, 236g protein and 217g fat.
Refeed felt really good and needed. Feel refreshed and ready to kill the diet next couple of days before Toughmudder on Saturday.

First dose 5:30 fasted, second at 10:30 and breakfast at 12:00. The appetite suppression has decreased significantly from the single morning dose then kicks in a while after the second. Once I have added a meal to that it gets even better.
Finished at work and got home around 5:00 where my ground turkey spaghetti sauce was awaiting in the crock pot. Smelled fantastic but I felt no need to dive right in, a testament to Lean EFX. Want to rest up some before Saturday so I just did some misc. stuff to get my heart pumpin: jump rope, burpees, lunges, lawnmowers, pushups - wash, rinse and repeat for about 30 minutes. Energy levels awesome, could have done that for another hour lol.
Bowl of pasta with sauce and an Isopure whey with pumpkin butter added (fing yum btw), shower and a nap.
Woke up for some cottage cheese and peanut butter to hit macros for the day and bed shortly after.
Overall: Appetite suppression diminished with the single dose. Going to try dosing 2 caps at once in the morning to see if that curbs the hunger more for me. Not sure if I will need to add a third later or not. Energy and focus still nice and clean.

Dosed 2 pills 6:00 fasted, no stomach issues. Did not do a second dose to gauge effects of the two at once. Appetite demolished all morning. I had a scheduled Friday treat at 12:00 (raspberry croissant ) and then salmon + veggies an hour later because I knew I needed to eat, not because I was hungry.
No workout today. Hitting the road in a couple hours to stay the night close to where the Tough Mudder is being held. Eating on the road with my copilot, not sure where we will eat but hoping they have fish or chicken boob.
I will try the double dose again after the weekend, I liked it today.

Interesting. I may try the double dose on Monday.

Woke at 6:30 and did a double dose. Decided to eat a little bit to try and keep some endurance through the course. Banana, peach and a greek yogurt. Off to Tough Mudder! Our heat started at 10:20 and we made it across the finish at 12:40. 2 hours and 20 minutes of abuse. We kept a good pace but kept getting bottled up by slow people from the heat before us we were trying to lap.
At the finish line I ate a banana, cliff builder bar and a beer. Didn't settle well and I started feeling like crap. Stopped in at a gas station to refuel on the way out and grabbed a chocolate milk thinking that may settle my stomach. Nope, worse. I ended up puking in the bathroom about four times and felt much better. Not sure what the deal was.
Picked up some pizza after getting back into town around 5:00 and scarfed a few pieces of Al Greco from Pizzacato ( mellow lamb sausage, feta, onions & tomatoes on a garlic/olive oil base – side of tzatziki sauce ). Outstanding pie. Could have easily finished the whole pie but had plenty of willpower to know when to stop. Still short on cals so I made a protein shake with Greek yogurt, egg, whey isolate and Mocchachinno Syntha6 to wash it all down. Scrubbed off the remaining mud in the shower and got to bed early.
Overall: amazing how contained my appetite was today with all the calorie burn. Energy was good throughout event and kicked back in after the short post race down to get me through the long drive.

First dose 6:00 AM fasted. Only did single pill and skipped the second dose as I wanted a relaxing lower stim day. Dis shoulders, chest & Tri's around 8:30 followed by jump rope, burpees etc. for about 20 minutes to really get the blood pumpin.
Took it easy the rest of the day; grilled some chicken, watched some movies, napped etc. A bit tender from the prior days activities so the rest was nice. Met my calorie goal and macros as well.
Overall: Even with the single dose in the morning my appetite was under control, albeit not gone, and my energy levels were good, mind sharp.
A few more days here and I will do final measurements and weight. I don't like checking too often, it's discouraging lol.

Single dose 5:00 AM fasted, 5k run at 6:30. Took second dose at 8:00 and off to work. I am liking spacing the dose closer as opposed to doubling up. I don't need the heavy appetite suppression to kick in until 10:00 or so when I normally start with the hunger pangs. Had good appetite suppression and energy throughout morning.
Breakfast at 12:00, the usual stuff: salmon, broccoli, greek yogurt with pumpkin, 2 hard boiled eggs, bag of carrots, bell peppers & blueberries and finally an Isopure no carb whey isolate shake. Appetite stayed under control throughout afternoon, energy levels up.
Did back & bicep workout at 4:30 followed by another 5k run. Carbed up some after with some mac & cheese, chili, cottage cheese and sardines made into a sundae.
Overall: appetite suppression still working well and dosing 3 hrs between first and second seems like a win. Clean energy, mood and focus also still chugging along. I have been in a decent mood throughout the day even being in a caloric deficit for a while now (save refeeds) where normally I would be a bit grumpy at times. Switched up to 2 a days on the cardio vs. one longer session to gain a bit of fasted cardio in the morning and extend raised metabolism window some. Getting to the bottom of the bottle, final measurements and thoughts soon!

Single dose 5:00 AM fasted, 5k run at 6:30 then off to work. Second dose at 8:00, still fasted. Appetite under control all morning but was ready for food when time came. Energy/focus good and clean.
12:00 breakfast, the usual salmon, broccoli etc., etc. Appetite still good throughout the afternoon despite cals being on the lower side. Energy good.
Went to the lake for some trail running with some friends around 6:00 pm. A little over 5k with some good hills and sprints sprinkled in. Had to shovel the food down the rest of the evening to get to calorie goal then off to bed. Have an early meeting with a long commute in the morning.
Overall: If you want something to aid in a calorie restricted diet, this is a product I recommend checking out. Appetite control and clean energy still great in my 4th week!
