I've used dicana in the past with good results although I needed 4 caps. OK here's what happened today:
Today I did Arms & Traps, a short 14-set workout with lots of supersets. Of course I can't feel anything from the Tribosten yet, but I did take a half-serving of Stizm (1 cap) 45 minutes prior to and I must say I liked it a lot. Increased sweating, focus, no jitters. Usually I don't like how stims make me feel, but in this case, I find no downside to its use. We'll see how sleep goes tonight and then I might try a full dose later on.
The workout lasted 45 minutes, after which I did 40 minutes of aerobics, 15 minutes on the recumbent bike and 25 minutes incline walking on the treadmill.
As per my fitday.com account, total calories are:
Absorbed: 3241 (201g protein)
Since I am in the process of recomping, that is using calories that are near maintenance and leaning out while maintaining/growing muscle, these numbers are of interest in my case. As are the measurements, which will only be reported on again at the very end of this log.

First effect I noticed is that upon waking up, my "boys" are larger than normal. I must also report that on a scale of -10 to 0 (baseline) to +10, both my energy and libido seem +1. But it's early so this might be placebo.
Did arms & Traps, followed by 30 minutes of cardio.
As per my fitday log, calories were:

Yes day 3 was yesterday. I add up my cals & stuff at the very end of the day and, well, I had company last night, so I got sidetracked.
Was an off day. Had some surprising lethargy during the day, I don't know if it's related to the supplement. Libido seems about +2.
Absorbed: 2202 (45% fat, 26% carbs, 30% protein)

Day 4 is today, another off day.
Nothing new to report.
Expended: 3093 - Well that's what fitday says. I think it's more like 2293...
Absorbed: 1924 (28% fat, 31% carbs, 41% protein)

I,m interested to see your results, thinking about adding it to my PCT.....

Today I trained back & calves. Right now I'm doing super-short workouts of 30 minutes. The reason for that is that I feel I need a lot of cardio to trim down and I also feel that doing 45-60 minutes of weights followed by 45 minutes of aerobic activity would shoot my cortisol way up, and this would be terribly counterproductive IMO. The last few years have seen me go into deep catabolism whenever I tried adding cardio after my 45-minute weights workout. I am 38 and it is starting to show. On top of the Tribosten, I also had a half-serving of Stizm.
Nice focus, good energy. I like the Stizm. I'm feeling pretty normal, except perhaps my appetite doesn't get to me so much, allowing me to eat somewhat less. Of course, I still cook for my usual appetite, but I feel I'll be able to cut that down if the appetite regulation is a fact of the Trib and not the Stizm. I don't know yet.
I am now 225 lbs, this is a nice surprise. Let's see if that holds. I have made some changes in my supplementation, starting yesterday I am dropping milk thistle from my stack of usual supplements. It is somewhat anti-anabolic and my liver is doing just fine.
Back & Calves: 30 minutes
Treadmill aerobics: 40 minutes

Busy day today. I only got 3 meals, including one at a lady friend's. These gurlz, they all like to cook for me. Pasta with veggies and cream & cheese sauce. Yummy. What is it with these women? Do they know nothing about nutrition or are they purposefully trying to make me fat right when I'm in recomp mode???
So I trained chest on a whole serving of Stizm. This Stizm stuff is very nice. To me, it's as good as a low dose of meth. I mean, I don't feel stimulated, just wide awake. That, and walking back from the gym, I didn't have my usual feeling of wanting to take it slow coming back. Full steam ahead, it was. Since the gym is about 30 minutes' walk away from my place, I often walk there and back, which gives me an additional 60 minutes of low-intensity aerobics.
My bodyweight was right at 225lbs again today, so that is very good news. I'm not experiencing any rise in strength or mass, but this weight loss does seem to come a bit easier than usual.
Today's nutritional misbehaving:

Day 8 (yesterday)
Trained legs. Lots of willpower, my knees didn't hurt so I lifted with confidence and focus. I feel good overall. Besides that, my sac is fuller than usual.
Weight steady at 225, good news. I think the fitday numbers are good after all.
Absorbed: 2114 (36% fat, 44% carbs, 19% protein )

Day 9 (January 27)
I got sidetracked with my log. I trained arms & traps and found my weights up a little, while keeping the bodyweight at 225. Nice, especially considering the caloric deficit of days 8 and 9. Energy is very good, as is resistance to hunger.
Absorbed: 2526 (39% Fat, 38% Carbs, 23% protein)

Day 10 (Yesterday)
Did I say I got sidetracked? Well, I wasn't home so I didn't take my Tribosten. Rest day.
Absorbed: 3813 (45% fat, 35% carbs, 20% protein = 195g)

Good workout. Delts & abs, good focus

stizm IS STRONG, everyone who has bought it from my Vitamin World store has returned saying they were cracked out, hey not the case for me it is strong but i Have a high tolerance, but for the rest outhere be careful...

Agreed, I personally love taking 2 caps when i need a kick, but many people report that 1 cap is enough to get them going.

Personally, I got a just perfect stimulation out of one cap. 2 seems not as good !? Except it keeps me up longer... But I'm sweatier with just one cap...

Had a very good workout. Back & Calves. Upped my poundages on two exercises, which is good. Both increases were just 5lbs but I could have added 10lbs instead. I followed that with some treadmill work.
Bodyweight is still 225, but I feel I am gaining some muscle size even on this crappy diet.

Day 13 (yesterday)
Was an off day. Interestingly, I seem to require much less sleep while on Tribosten. At first I thought it was a fluke but now it's been nearly 2 weeks on it and my natural sleep has gone down from 10 hours to 8.
Absorbed: 3595 (49% fat, 31% carbs, 21% protein= 177g)
OK now I really got to lay off the peanut butter and order some more protein powder. This looks like a get-fat diet, doesn't it?
