Hey guys Ive been doing a lot of research on this product seems to be pretty good. So this morning I bought myself 2 bottles. The only question I had was on what kind of foods to eat. I researched that as well everyone said daries, meat, chicken, greens ect. And jjohn said it was ok to eat tuna, the only thing is im pretty sure thats an omega 3. So i called customer service 1888-828-8008 and matt told me that the new bottles that were just released just made a correction that all foods are ok just do not take asparin, ibprofen ect.
What do you guys think?
Also I asked if under 200lbs if I should take 3 or 4 caps he said 4. I don't know where I saw a post that said if under 200lbs take 3.
Thanks john the only thing is I have this customer service guy from molecular nutrition telling me that the new bottles that are going to be released with the new label say that you can now eat anything. Any fish peanutbutter omega 3s. I also made sure to ask him if the formula has changed and he says no just the label. He also said that this was something that they also studied at baylor univerity and the same results came out. He told me if I dont believe it to go to bodybuilder.com and to go under supplements then company promos and a company rep made a thread saying it was ok..
What do you think?
it's ok..dont worry about it!
my personal experence is you can up to 5 caps/ day and longer cycle, you can check john 1250mg/100 days XF
oooh ok, sorry about that. Also since I dont eat to many calories because im always on the go. I did see your posts about tking dairies, milk, yougurts ice cream ect, meats, coconut extra vigin oil, chicken, tuna, greens, and peanut butter even though it has i think omega 6 and the good kind is alot of omega 3 or even peanuts wouldn't that ruin the affect?
1)Would you recommend taking a weight gainer?
2) looking at gaining the most possible but makig it lean.
I am also taking BSN products N.O. Explode and Cell Mass
for post because I still have a month left. What do you think?
Thank you and sorry for so many questions. This is the last one..
A weight gainer is a good idea if you need to push more calories in. You can keep these BSN products no problem.
is it ok to bump up the dosage to make loading a bit faster? it seems very long to wait 3 weeks to finish loading and then see any effects from the arachidonic acid.
awesome, thanks alot john this has been a big help. Plan to start tommorow.
From there I have seen a lot of people experiment with dosages either in cycle length or mg's per day but not necessarily reap much more benefits than the recommended dosage.
thanks alot cal
I don't know if I would necessarily take X Factor during your season. It has a tendency to create some major DOMS and may prove to be an annoyance if you have to run while extremely sore.
Many athletes will use X Factor during the off season to build up strength (which requires bulking to an extent) and then go into the season with some new muscle.
Depending on what kind of track runner you are (long distance/sprint) you may want look into a product more suitable for your goals. Sprinting requires a lot of fast-twitch muscles/strength/explosiveness. X Factor would fit in quite perfectly for this type of runner. Long distance, endurance athletes may be better off with looking into Cordyceps, Beta Alanine, and Citrulline Malate.
Basically it comes down to your goals, when you plan on using this product, and what you want to get out of it. You need to keep in mind that to build muscle/strength you may need to "bulk", it is very hard to build any strength while on maintenance calories and even more difficult while on a calorie deficit.
quick question if you eat all the peanut butter you want wouldn't it ruin the x factor effects because of the soybean that the peanut butter contains. Just curious I wanted to gt the best results possible. Also when I said I wanted to bulk thats kind of a lie. I want to gain 6-10 lbs but of pure lean muscle if possible im at 9.0 body fat I would like to lower that to 8.0 % bf. Advice thank you.
Putting on 6-10 lbs. is a big goal, but an accomplishable one for sure. X Factor has shown great results with people on bulking diets and keeping BF% down. If I were you, i'd keep an extremely clean diet and start a slow-bulk for a month or two.
