Awesome feedback, excited to see how it treats you on a workout day.I accidentally posted this in Kevinhy's thread instead of here, but I'll just copy and paste my impressions here.
I got my fruit punch flavored today. Finally! I have used OEP and AT2 both together and separately, so I have a pretty decent stim tolerance.
Background: 5' 8.5" 156 pounds. BF: maybe 16-17%. I am a definite endo, storing fat mainly on my lower chest, lower abs, obliques, and butt. I was 190 -195 pounds of fatty fat fat in February/March, and decided to make a change. Pretty solid progress, but I'd like to eventually, for the love of God, get down to 10%. This isn't even my first transformation. I've lost major weight (like 50 pounds in 2 months) TWICE before throughout the years with very, very poor (read: Stacker 2 with a starvation diet) nutrition. Well, we all know what happens to people who go on extreme diets. I've made an actual healthy lifestyle change this time, and can't see why I can't keep it up forever. It's pretty easy when your food tastes awesome.
Current Supps: I'm currently on day 24 of (love it) and day 12 of (starting to see/feel the effects). I pretty much couldn't do anything in the gym for over a month because of horrible shoulder/neck pain. That is, until Super Cissus saved my life. I don't get any joint problems on Pro either because of this. I also take , a multi, and will be back on kre alkalyn in another week or two.
With ALL that out of the way, here are my first impressions of Alphamine:
Man, the UPS guy got here at the perfect time, as this is when I would take my first dose of any thermo.
Dose: 2 scoops
Taste: This is the first flavored, powdered supplement (besides whey) that I have used in years. They all tasted awful to me. Alphamine is pretty good tasting. Definitely a plus in my book.
Thermo Effect: I usually workout 90-120 minutes after my first meal, but today was an off day for me. That being said, I just sat in my chair, and was sweating pretty good.
Energy: This stuff kicks in FAST. Normally I don't feel any energy or thermo effects of any fat burner until I've at least had my first meal. This kicked in maybe 15-20 minutes tops after ingestion. It wasn't as jittery as I feel on OEP or OEP + AT2, but it made me feel like doing something. Good feeling that lasted for quite a bit.
Appetite Suppression: For MY needs, absolutely PERFECT. It was in between OEP (high suppression) and AT2 (mild suppression) for me. I'm pretty good about my nutrition, but occasionally, in between meals, I will have an extra craving here and there for some light carbs (yogurt, sugar free pudding, etc.). I didn't feel any of that AND I could easily enjoy my meals. This is the major problem I have with OEP. The food that I make tastes pretty darn good to me, but OEP suppresses my appetite so much, that it feels like it actually changes my taste buds. Everything tastes like crap, and I have a hard time even getting in 1500 calories in. Super suppression is great when you're ~25% BF trying to change your lifestyle, like I was in February. Once, you're no longer "dieting," but eating for your goals, super suppression can be detrimental. Alphamine hits the absolute sweet spot for me here. Fan-freaking-tastic!
Dose: 1 scoop about 7 hours after the AM dose.
Thermo: Still working up a pretty good sweat just sitting in my chair. Will see how it fares when I do my every other nightly sets of chinups and pushups in a few.
Energy: Again, this kicked in pretty quickly. Good, clean energy. No jitters at all on one scoop.
Appetite: Same as AM. Perfect.
Can't wait to see how this run ends up. I am already thinking of ordering another tub based on the appetite suppression alone. Did I mention how perfect it is for me? Haha.
