Was your diet extremely clean or somewhat clean? Just curious as I just finished a 4 week cycle of Trimax and lost over 11 lbs of fat and actually gained LBM but my diet was very clean.Originally Posted by WhutEvr
Scott, what did you use to prevent muscle loss?
45 mg's of M4OHN. It worked wonders for me. I wont deny my strength disappeared but LBM didnt. I'm in PCT now and the strength is coming back easy. IMO M4 is the way to go when doing Trimax. I just wished I would have stocked up on it as I"m out now..Originally Posted by DmitryWI
Thanks. I started SD 20mg with tri-max 3 days ago and I hope SD strong enough to keep my muscles.
It was 90% clean; but I think my age has a lot to do with it (45).Originally Posted by scott72
Calories were at maintenance (1900) or a little below.
Didn't really "feel" the effects to the extent others have mentioned in this and other posts.
No lethargy or sweating, a few flashes of warmth.
I didnt feel any effects either. I didnt get the ****s a lot of people reported either, but it definitely worked!Originally Posted by WhutEvr
I posted about a friend of mine at the end of the sticky. Several of her family members were hypo or hyper thyroid and she did not know that and took trimax. When she came off, she immediately started bouncing between hyper and hypo. Eventually the doctors had to kill her thyroid. Now shes getting a daily dose of T3/T4 now for the rest of her life.Originally Posted by scott72
Obviously this probably will only happen if you have a preexisting condition, but if any of your family members have thyroid conditions, I would STRONGLY advise against using Trimax.
I tried trimax agian...i am in my third week and up to 6 mg a day...I feel nothing but im ****tin a lot
I'm on my 2nd week of Trimax and I don't really feel like it's working. I started out at 1 cap for 4 days and then uped it to 2 caps (now i'm on day 6)...I know it's still early, but do ya'll think i should change my diet again? I've been dieting since January so I range from 1200-1500 calorie a day, the past 2 weeks I've droped it to 900 to 1000 (50/30/20), very clean. I do a hard 40 minutes of cardio, and then I lift weights for about 30 minutes 5 days a week. Is there something I'm missing? Maybe I should do more cardio?
How much do you weigh?Originally Posted by Elizzard
Unless you're 100lbs that's a starvation diet -- inexplicable considering trimax use. Maybe lower the cardio intensity and bump it to a full hour. Do an hour of moderate stair-climbing and you'll drop weight.
Your calories are way too low.
I'd try to stay around 500 below maintenance.
I weigh 160 lbs. I don't really know what my maintenance calories are because I've been eating clean for so long, I just struggle with weight loss (reason why I'm trying trimax). I was going to an advanced cycling class (lasted an hour), so maybe i'll try that again and incorporate the stair stepper. So you guys think 1000 calories is way too low? I feel so bad if i eat more than that though. Here's what a typical day is for me:Originally Posted by WhutEvr
1/2 cup oats w/ fat free milk
1 scoop ON protein powder
1/2 cup cottage cheese
spinach salad w/ red wine vinagrette
Tilapia Fillet w/ 1 tbs salsa
1/2 cup plain fat free yogert
Since you don't have a height listed. I'm going to list a couple different calories for maintenance of 160# at different heights. All assume you workout 3-4 days a week.
5'8" - 2772 cal
6'0" - 2851 cal
6'4" - 2929 cal
This might make a difference, I'm FEMALE, 5'7, 160 and I work out 6 days a week (2 hard cardio days for an hour),4 days wo with weights and 30 min hard cardio (like elliptical).Originally Posted by WhutEvr
2273 cal to maintainOriginally Posted by Elizzard
2007 cal to lose
In that post you say your maintenance cals are 1900, but you say she should be at 2200? That seems kind of odd to me... we are still trying to figure out her maintenance calories but they are definitely way below 2200.Originally Posted by WhutEvr
Age plays a large factor in calories needed (younger more calories/older less).
My calories for weight loss are based on
LBM of 154lbs (determined with float test).
Activity: lift 3 days, cardio 2.
If you know your true LBM, the calculation can be more accurate.
Good Lord dude, your cals are way to low!! Never drop more than 10 times your bodyweight in cals. My suggestion is this. Start out at 12 times bodyweight and gradually lower, but only lower if your fat loss has stalled. You've put your body in starvation mode.Originally Posted by Elizzard
