    Question Cleaning it up, and taking 2 Weeks Off All Supps...


    I have 2 more weeks of PCT; actually 1 full force, and one tapering off. Those are weeks 3-4 of PCT. My cycle was only 4 weeks, not terribly harsh. My idea is this (if I can manage to pull it off): After PCT, I'm gonna drop ALL my usual supps, and kinda do a "cleansing" 2 weeks. Eat whole, clean foods, lots of H20, and try to get regular 8 hours sleep. Cut seriously back on caffeine (or preferably cut it out altogether), no nothing except what makes sense to stay nutritionally sound. Multi vitamin as well as extra C and E, and that's about it. Anybody do this kind of thing, and if so, how does it go? And what things WOULD be wise to use during this period? Myself, I already know its gonna be a challenge.....I'm not the greatest living example of self-discipline manifested, so I think it will help me with that, as well as give my body a rest from all the stuff I normally ingest.

    I think it is a good idea. The only supplements to continue taking are "health" related supplments like vitamins and fish oil.

    Will you be dropping protein powder?

    Can't hurt. Personally, That's kinda what I do between cycles. I'm not the type that consumes bucket loads of supps on a regular basis. I feel that sound nutrition preceedes all that.

    bump to this, a great idea for everybody to do reguardless of ph/aas use, we tend to overload our bodies with everything and every now and then I'm sure it appreciates a few weeks of normal nutrient intake etc, plus after the couple weeks gettin back on everything will feel great coming from taking nothing

    I've read on other boards about those who do a colon cleansing (if that is the correct term) in order to flush their system aftera cycle. Some claim that it actually helps with the absorption or efficiency of future cycles. Just the amount of gunk that they say is in there is enough to make me consider it after my current cycle and PCT are over. I haven't searched AM, but there are some posts over on the VPX board about it:

    You're speaking of an anema. I've heard of people losing 5 lbs after a good cleansing. Pretty gross.

    Yeah, good call on the fish oil. That'll stay in the mix, as will protein. I'm thinking of using less whey, though, and more egg protein. Probably do whey for 3-4 days, then egg protein for 3-4 days, etc. Kinda wanna see if I have different reactions. Those are the main protein supps, although I use added BCAA powder, and a nite formula of caesin/milk isolate from time to time. On the days I don't use whey, I'll cut out all dairy altogether (again, to see if there is a notable reaction; I had a dairy allergy as a kid, and I want to see if there is any issue still if I can.

    So for the most part, it'll be vitamins, protein powder, whole food, and fish oil. That should cover the basic needs, unless some other ideas pop up.

    I would try completely dropping the whey and using another protein source. I believe, Poliquin is a supporter of changing the types of protein one uses.

    Milwood, there is a lot of sound advise on this thread and your
    plan seems sound to me. i am very much for dropping all but
    "health" related supplements for a while to give your body a
    break. u should find that when u start back on them their initial
    effect will be "enhanced" since the receptors in your body should
    sensitive to them again. also, some milk thistle or nac or r-ala would
    be good as they support healthy liver function of which all supplements
    stress to some degree, even if its negligle to some. I am actually in the middle
    of such a "break" myself...it's lasted 6 weeks now and i feel very much revived
    ready to start back on my "arsenal"!!!!

    also, i'm not sure about dropping all dairy...the calcium will
    help keep you leaner and healthier while u r "resting"...on top of
    that u need anyway for general health too, unless ur multi provides
    enough or u take a calcium supplement
