hell, you might even want to try the beef & grapefruit diet for awhile, till those supps can be put in place.Grapefruit is an excellent source of many nutrients and phytochemicals, able to contribute to a healthy diet. Grapefruit is a good source of vitamin C, pectin fiber, and the pink and red hues contain the beneficial antioxidant lycopene. Studies have shown grapefruit helps lower cholesterol and there is evidence that the seeds have high levels of antioxidant properties. Grapefruit forms a core part of the "grapefruit diet", the theory being that the fruit's low glycemic index is able to help the body's metabolism burn fat.
8oz lean 93% or leaner beef + 1/2 grapefruit, 6x daily.
run it for 5-7 days, see what happens..

That SuperCuts 3 has the grapefruit extract in it. I'd prefer the blueberries + Graperfruit extract over just the grapefruit.

blueberries and bananas are my menu for non-cutting periods..

Doesn't something in grapefruit have to do with repartitioning nutrients? For some reason I thought i remembered a supplement with grapefruit something or other in it.

Very interesting I will have to be trying that out. It doesn't sound like it would go well with each other though.

has an impact on metabolism..
contains HCA, which is in a boatload of fat-burners..
HCA is an acronym for Hydroxy Citric Acid. Its purported effects are to inhibit the conversion of fat by blocking the enzyme ATP citrate lyase and to decrease appetite. Garcinia Cambogia is the standardized herb of HCA. Naringin is NOT the same as HCA (carcinia cambogia) but it is isolated from grapefruit. Naringin is an inhibitor of an enzyme that is responsible for metabolizing caffeine and has been shown to possibly prolong caffeine's fat burning effects.

a little background on 'the grapefruit diet':
Though the grapefruit diet originated in the 1930s, it came to popularity in the 1970s, when it was erroneously propagated through Xeroxlore as "the Mayo Clinic Diet", though the Clinic has no connection to the diet and how the connection started is unclear. The diet significantly limits the amount of fruits and vegetables one eats while encouraging meat intake; the combination of these high-fat, high-cholesterol foods with grapefruit is claimed to burn fat. Although the number of days in the diet varies, it generally involves a set number of days on the diet followed by two "break" days. It was re-popularized in the 1980s and nicknamed the "10-day, 10-pounds-off diet".
A 2004 study funded by The Florida Citrus Department found that participants lost an average of 3-4 pounds over 12 weeks by eating half a grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice with each meal and exercising regularly; many participants lost more than 10 pounds. It was hypothesized that the grapefruit reduced insulin levels, encouraging fat loss. However, the study involved a healthy diet with the addition of grapefruit, in contrast to a normal "grapefruit diet".

I ate grapefruit every morining and in the afternoon in my last cut, and I got pretty effing ripped!! Of course the rest of my diet, cardio,training, and supplements were on point, but I would have thought the sugar in the grape fruit would be counter productive. SILLY ME! LOL
Needless to say, when ever I do my next cut (been starting every monday so far but still need to start) I will def eat grapefruit during my next cut (when I finallly get my lazy arse motivated). By the way hman, allready looking! (no homo!)

Yeah I was just playing around but in general there are more androgen receptors in the shoulders and upper back (if I remember correctly). This is why you will see stare roid users with huge traps/shoulders. It tends to even out though.
You seem to be making some solid progress though.
