    AnaBeta: More Hype ?


    First off, read my signature.

    Ok, embarrasingly enough, I have had an unopened bottle of AnaBeta for over a month now. Wanted to finish up a run (and full clearance) of some other items I was on for the purpose of fairly and accurately assessing efficacy of AnaBeta.

    Current Stats
    Mid 40's
    5'11
    Weighed in at 212 this morning
    Body Fat - 10-12%

    Here's the deal: I am a low carber and have been for as long as I can recall (20 years).

    Typical week: 1 carb up meal mid week + 1 carb up/full day binge on the weekends.

    Today: Woke up at 6:00 am
    1 cap 6:00 am for breakfast
    1 cap an hour later (45 minutes pre-w/o)
    Zero Carbs (Eggs for breakfast + BCAA's pre/peri/post-w/o)

    Experience:
    Alpha male was kicked in something fierce. Felt like I was "ON" (which I have a ton of experience with).
    Fellow older crowd - ever start your workouts after 20 years of doing so, and wonder " what the heck am I doing here - this crap's for the birds" ? That's been me for a few weeks (serious RUT).

    Not today. I was trying exercises I haven't tried in years. Killer/fun training session. Endurance notably increased. Sweat was ridiculous. Even the tunes I always have blasting in my ears sounded sharper, crisper, and more motivating. Bizarre, but just sharing as I was cerebrally connected to my w/o.

    No noted pumps or strength changes, just a clean alpha male feeling and lucid ZONE feeling (mentally-speaking).

    Placebo?
    Perhaps! Beats me but I am fired up to see what happens the next few days/weeks and will be sure to provide unsolicited feedback from time to time on this thread of the good/bad/ugly.
    Disclaimer: A true assessment can only be given after at least a week so stay tuned.

    Notes:
    1) I imagine my pumps will pale in comparison to most due to the lack of carbs.

    Also, I am not a fan of appetite increases as mine is off the hook as is, so this will be a challenge for me to stay relatively lean and do a mini recomp. At this stage of my life, the goal is merely to maintain and make minimal recomp changes in the mirror.
    2) This product could totally suck and this could be a total fluke. However, when "OFF" gear, I only get these workouts a few trimes a year on a whim (where they can only be described as: invigorating, revitalizating re-birth style workouts).

    Again, read my signature, I couldn't care less about pimping anyone's crap. I have never and will never be a sponsor for anyone. That is NOT why I am on these forums.

    hope you can stick with the low carbs on anabeta, i was craving carbs when i was on it-even so managed to lean out some. plus my endurance and recovery both went up by a huge amount.

    I did Anabeta for 8 weeks. Loved every minute of it. Alpha male,pump, strenght increase, leaning out effect and over all something that really worked for me. By the way I'll be 45 on 9/22. Maybe it works better for us young guys? Good luck. Im going for round 2 in 4 weeks

    Me too! That's been my one hesitation (along with increase in appetite in general too). LOL
    Nice to hear the leaning out part!

    Definrely in for this one.

    I'm a low carber too and I didn't run into any problems on Anabeta. I got hungrier, but eating more eggs/meat/veggies takes care of it.

    I liked five on workout days and four off.
    You will notice the pump real soon. Especially in the morning and thru out the day. Even on warm ups before you hit it real hard. After the 5 and six weeks I just got used to pump feeling and kind of forgot about it.

    Ah, how could I not sub to this?

    Very curious to see your reports, we both low carber and I ran a log on this as well.
    I was worried about hunger increase when I started taking it but,
    I didn't experience any hunger increase, so if you're like me.. no worries

    good luck my friend

    Good see someone closer to my age and also closer to my diet running this product. I use Anabeta but only on my carb up days. Don't know if I could handle it on lower carb days especially with the lower calories I'm on now. Almost seems like it would be counter productive to my goal if I ran it at this low a calorie and carb level. Good luck Whacked. I don't like the regular BS of logs I see on here. I've probably mentioned this before but I don't like having to scroll threw peoples daily workouts and diets just to find the stuff I'm interested in. Too many details that I just don't need or want to know. In other words, I would rather read a final review than a log.

    Good luck though I hope you like it as much as I do.

    In for a low carb anabeta log!

    All the logs I have seen users reported feeling low blood sugar type effects when they didn't eat more carbs. I would really like to see a successful low carb anabeta run

    I will also be watching your posts on Anabeta because I have been following the reviews and I have been
    seening alot of mixed reviews some people love it and some just say it's a waste of money because it did
    nothing for them but maybe just give them more of an appetite and $40-$45 is kind of steep for something
    that just increases your appetite. I was ready to purchase a jar but then the I started to see the reviews that
    weren't too positive so I will wait it out a little see how it goes with others who are trying Anabeta.

    I have kept up to date with almost all of the reviews and there are a handful of people who weren't impressed out of about 50 logs I have seen. That is a ratio I am happy with.

    Hey thread-hackers, get a room!


    UPDATE:
    3 days in ......
    Alpha male still in gear, kinda pissy now (LOL) so the work outs are great (3 under my belt)
    No fullness, bodyweight or appearance, or discernable strength changes to speak of thus far
    Hunger up a tad, nothing bad
    I have had a few tension style headaches (I very rarely get headaches so I would assume there is a correlation here)
    Thirst is up a tad as well (I've been hydrating extra to combat the headaches, seems to fo the trick)

    I got the headaches on my first bottle of anabeta but on the second bottle they went away. Make sure to be taking in your high dose of BCAA and drink lots of water. These supps def raise body temp.

    I am also a low-carber, but people define "low carbs" differently. How many grams of carbs is low for you? What are you carb sources?

    During the week, I only consume carbs from vegetables (spinach, broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms). I probably get no more than 50 grams of carbs per meal, maybe a bit more, but definitely well below 100 grams. I do not eat bread, pasta, rice, potatoes or fruit. I do eat more than 100 grams of carbs per meal on Saturday and Sunday. On workout days, I eat two rice cakes (around 30 grams of carbs) during brakfast.

    My Week:

    2 days LOW (<40 is the goal: only green veggie + nut sources)
    1 day Medium (one cheat meal - total for the day <100)
    3 days LOW (<40 is the goal: only green veggie + nut sources)
    1 BINGE DAY (~600 carbs over 3 meals)<------Football Sunday
    (repeat)

    I've been low carb for a long time, just by natural preference. when I started originally trying to lose fat, the bad carbs were cut first and then I just got used to not eating much in carbs. Now on lean gains, i'm eating more carbs on workout days, and even less on non-workout days. Been thinking about giving anabeta a shot, this will be interesting to see.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with this thread. I'm not sure if you understand how a forum/message board works.

    Sure I did. Your posts have little to nothing to do with this thread. This is a log for Whacked. It has nothing to do with you and your self esteem. I will now refrain from posting anything else in response to you to let Whacked do his thing.
