    cutting out carbs 99.5% does have its benefits of more fat loss due to ketosis...but i dont feel like doing that, even i have my weaknesses.
    Were you overwieight at one time? Is that why you try to cut carbs? Because I can eat 1000 carbs a day and never gain a single pound.

    Wow! what a difference! You went from Jack Black to Brad Pitt in only 2 years. Sh^t

    lol. I bet you're frantic when you gain a pound or two..Is it fat? Is it muscle? Where did it go George? Where'd the weight go? lol Whereas I'm lucky to gain an ounce, and if I do IT'S PARTY TIME



    Nice changes though, that's real dedication.

    thanks for the compliments....

    yes...when i gain a couple of pounds i question myself.....its not the direction i like, lol

    weight is important, i use it as a tool, but the mirror is the best indicator. muscle gain is always welcome, although not my priority at this point since i do have a decent base for my goals.

    I'd say you get about ten to fifteen carbs a day if you use water for protein shakes.

    ^see everybody needs carbs
    this not matter all of them has carbs but you need REST the fiber then you obtain the NET CARBS with 10-12g carbs a day you maintain on KETO

    495 mg/cap HOM Beta-Ecdysterone Anabolic Environment Enhancer
    300 mg/cap SciFit EcdySterone 300
    200 mg/cap Syntrax SyntraEC
    150 mg/cap Supreme Sports Enhancements Omnibolic
    100 mg/cap Peak Performance Ecdysone FX
    100 mg/cap Vyotech 17-HD
    98 mg/cap SciFit T-Max Dual Anabolic System
    52 mg/cap ThermoLife E-BOL
    25 mg/cap MRM ECDY-20
    25 mg/cap Universal IsoStak
    25 mg/cap Weider Beta-Ecdysterone
    20 mg/cap Scitec Nutrition MyoMeth
    15 mg/cap ThermoLife Ecdysten
    7.5 mg/cap LA Muscle Norateen Heavyweight II
    7.5 mg/cap LA Muscle Norateen II

    (If you guys see any omissions or errors, let me know and I can edit the list...)

    Personally, I took 300-400 mg of ecdy (Peak Performance product above), split into 3-4 doses each day, for about 4 weeks, with a high protein diet, a couple of years ago. To be honest, I didn't notice anything, good or bad. A bit disappointing.

    I'm thinking of getting the SSE Omnibolic and giving it another try though, this time with a different product and at a higher dose of 150 mg 3x/day (450 mg ED).

    Also, anyone have a study to back up the claim of synergy with methoxy?

    Cheers!
    Let me know how the SSE stuff works.

    The only PH I ever messed with was on an Epi/Formex run.
    Other than that, I have the patience enough to lift heavy, eat clean and use less potent things to slowly get gains.
    When I see some of the stacks some guys on here take, I feel like a chump.
    Lolz

    The tribal folks get all theirs from vegetables, fruit, and nuts.
    This processed food with all the extras probably have a different chemical structure of carbs, sugars. and fats compared to the natural foods.

    Excellent progress.
    Much respect to you.
    Enjoy seeing someone reach their goals.

    Thanks for the info about the other "sterones in there. I'm not familiar with them... are they supposed to be better/stronger?

    I've never tried E-BOL (yet?), but people rave about it in all of the ecdy threads on here. Still, including all the sterones (is that what they're called?), that's only 62 mg per cap.... Seems a bit underdosed to me, but I suppose if you take the recommended 6 caps ED, you're getting 372 mg ED. Maybe if the quality is as high as you claim, that's good enough? Or maybe there's good synergy or effects from the other ingredients in E-BOL's profile. Hmm. Sounds like I might have to modify my shopping cart again and go find out.
    I know E-bol is designed well for maximum results.
    If I could get my hands on a formula with just the three ingredients below
    it would be a staple.

    Turkesabol™
    (Ajuga Turkestanica Extract - Imported Directly From The Institute Of The Chemistry Of Plant Substances, Academy Of Sciences, Republic Of Uzbekistan Containing: Turkesterone, Ecdysterone, Cyasterone And Ajugasterone)

    EcdyPure™
    Rhaponticum Carthamoides Extract Standardized For 95% Ecdysterone

    Rostanabol™
    (25 R)-5alpha-Spirostan-2alpha, 3beta, 5alpha-Triol-6-OH
    ============================== =============

    just ordered these from Tonvara
    (been doing a little OT lately and since I have been supp free for the past few months its the best time to experiment.)

    Tonvara SuperEcdy Russian Leuzea Carthamoides Ecdysterone
    Tonvara TrueTurk Turkesterone from Ajuga Turkestanica from the ICPS in Uzbekistan

    Going to run them at 3 to 4 caps a day each.
    Started responding to the brands I mentioned earlier in about a week or so.
    And know my body well enough in relation to this to know if its legit.
    Will let you guys know if I get the same effects as I got with only ecdy.
    From the claimed potency of Turk, should be more pronounced.

  11. Huge fan!!!! Btw this is from wiki

    Ecdysone is a steroidal prohormone of the major insect molting hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone, which is secreted from the prothoracic glands. Insect molting hormones (ecdysone and its homologues) are generally called ecdysteroids.

  13. Anyone look at that new Ecdy product from LG? Sub-Sterone i think its called?

    Looks pretty legit. Would have bought some if I had some cash...ill just save up a bit. If I had some cash I would love to run a solid ecdy with some Forskolin. Especiall since i normally have a fairly high protein diet for my size(230-290 for 185)....im thinking an ecdy would be a nice add on.

    I think you would really like this GH; the concentration of the extract is many fold above other products on the market and the delivery system is going to bring more bio-availability then has been seen before as well. I bet it would stack great with a forskolin based product as well... got me thinking!
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    Well think about it...increased protein synthesis PLUS increase cAMP activity would be a very nice for a strong recomp with an emphasis on strength gain and fat loss. I would love to run it as a bridge between Swole stacks. Starting int he middle of one cycle and then ending in the begining of the next. Start on week 5 run the last 4 weeks and then run throughout the 4-6 weeks betweeen the stack and finish after the first week on the following stack. Would allow for consistant gains while giving your body a break for the herbs.

    Can work with the natabolic stack to. Start during your run with natabolic and continue through PCT to continue gains.

  16. I have been taking a product containing ecdysone for over six year. *Not sure how much is in it (universal nutrition m-stak). *But I have notice on either my week off or month off (depending on my cycle) my sex drive is down big time. *It's to the point that my chick make smart ass comments about my supps.*

    Anyone else experience this prob. Also Don't take any pro homornes tried them once and quit after four day.

    Another question for follow ecdy lovers!! Is there a need for PCT? *I always take a test booster PCT because my sex drive is so low during my off cycle of ecdy (m-stak and iso stak R my sources)*

  17. I'm typing this from my iPhone and I'm lazy sorry about the grammars

    It is non hormonal so there is no need for a pct. Some people actually use it in pct. My guess is the AI in Mstack lowered your estrogen too much.

  21. Yea.... I've been meaning to do that. Should I wait till I'm on a break from ecdy & mstak before I get blood work?

    Yes, you should be off everything for at least 3-4 weeks so your body can reach homeostasis then get your blood work done. A hormone panel should give you what you need and identify where your test/estro levels are and the ratio of the two that is just as important.

  23. ax1, that is some very inspirational sh*t right there. I've dabbled w/ ckd/Bodyopus in the past. I didn't know what I was doign and lost tooooo much muscle. Do you ever get lethargic/hypo? Probably not now, but when you first started?

    This wasn't to me was it?
