    Need advice on my Erase + EC dosing schedule.


    After reading Robb Wolf's book and learning about the negative effects of cortisol on weight-loss , I became more conscious about optimizing cortisol levels. However, I like using EC when it comes to weight-loss and 200mg of caffeine is known to increase cortisol up to 30%(Google search), so I came up with the idea of dosing EC and Erase as following:

    2 days on/2 days off
    For the days on - morning: EC(25/200)+Erase(1pill) Lunch:EC(25/200)+Erase Dinner:Erase(1pill)

    will this be an effective dosing schedule that takes care of tolerance issues? and are there any possible negative effects on health with the above stack?

    I think it's a bad idea.

    yeah, I thought the hormonal fluctuation caused by that dosing plan might not be a good thing. The reason why I prefer the 2days on/2days off schedule is because it gives me better control over the dependence issues.

    BTW, would Erase effectively lower the increased cortisol from caffeine intake? I wonder why famous weight-loss specialists don't mention cortisol blockers as a way to facilitate your weight-loss.

    Probably because cortisol increases lipolysis (fat burning) as well as muscle breakdown, so saying a cortisol blocker is a fat burner would yield lots of arguments

    Cortisol blockers should be used during fat loss cycle to prevent muscle loss, no so much to burn fat

    This is definitely a major part of a cortisol blocker's role in body composition. I still believe that an anti-cortisol product will reduce bodyfat though, as it would suppress the differentiation of fat cells to a degree that will overcompensate for the decrease in lipolysis.

    This is why such products can work for preventing fat gain on a bulk as well, though they are best used on a cut.
