With your indulgence, I've decided to post some initial impressions about my UCP-1 experience. It is still too early to weigh in and make a judgement, but I thought it might be fun to write my impressions as I go along.
I have completed Day 4. My regimen now is to take 2 tabs 4 times a day. This is much much more than I thought I would actually do. But I thought I might as well up the dose closer to the recommended amount, because I haven't noticed any change:
My weight is the same, and -- if anything -- I've noticed some bloating, primarily because of the increased water I am consuming (doubled my amount to about 1.75 gallons H2O -- I know because I use the 2 gal jug of water).
Fortunately, I also haven't noticed any side effects from the UA, which is a welcome relief: no lethargy, rashes, or sweating. In that regard, I am quite happy.
The upside is that I've discovered that tyrosine (TYR) does indeed enhance the anorexic effects of an E/C stack for me. During my regimen, I have been playing with my dosage of E/Y/C and tyrosine, and have found that decreasing my E/Y/C stack to twice a day with 500 mg TYR twice a day has had a signifigant effect on my appetite. I just don't have those really late night urges anymore.
Still, it is only Day 4. I am no doubt expecting too much in too short a time. From my own vanity, I will post more as I progress.
