ECA Stack Help
Hello all, I'm new here and trying to swim through the expansive amounts of posts and only giving myself a headache.
My current situation is this. A year ago I had a baby and I gained way too much weight. I've been able to lose 50lbs of that weight, however the last 10-15 just won't go. I work out 3-4 times a week, either running or doing at home exercises. (Not to mention chasing around a little one.) My diet isn't the greatest, as I have an issue with food textures and am unable to eat a lot of fruits unless I blend them up. (Which I do) However, I don't pig out on sweets, either.
Before the ephera ban, I used the Xenadrine rfa stuff and absolutely loved it. It helped me drop the 10lbs at the time then that i couldn't get to go away, and I was able to keep it off. (Until my pregnancy that is.)
I've read up on the ECA stacks, but I'm a little nervous to try and figure out on my own what to come up with. I would like something close to the old xenadrine, as I didn't get jittery or light headed with that.
Any help with building me a stack would be very much appreciated.
I'm 5'4" at 156 lbs. I want to be 140 and my size 6 again!

Diet..Diet..Diet!!! fat burners will only make you fatter w/o proper diet.
Avoid HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) in sodas, fruit juice..ect. A trick i learned..eat free range lean meats and dairy...read lables..stuff in a can(vegetables/fruit) are loaded with hidden sugars. Eat 5 small meals to keep metabolism churning. Then try a ECA stack. Primatene/bronkaid..vivarin or no doze..baby asprin. The days of the old xenadrine are long gone and there are many fakes out there so be careful...good luck

Yeah, I don't drink soda or fruit juice at all. I basically only drink water, and then a glass of milk in the mornings. I do eat a lot of lean meats, and actually I eat a lot of elk, and rarely do I eat canned foods. Most things I eat are made from scratch.
What dosages would you recommend for the stack?

Well, mornings bounce between cereal (Usually Total or FiberOne) or Slimfast, just depending on the amount of time I have. Then I will eat a granola bar or have a smoothie for lunch and dinner I have a home cooked meal. Never really counted my calories to be honest.
I will try that stacker out. Is it okay to lessen the caffeine? I tend to be sensitive to it.

Also, I just noticed you said for up to 2 weeks. Do I break and then start again or how does that work?

I shouldn't have need to double it. I wasn't even that good at remembering to take my Xenadrine all the time and it still melted it away.

Is it safe to combine ephedra extract with Primatene? I was given a bottle of green stingers from a friend to try, didn't know if it would be safe to take alongside it or not.

Spread your meals out in smaller versions throughout the day, 5-6 small meals . Gotta keep that metabolism running high. Keep your carbs in smaller amounts during the evening as well. Keep the protein up and hit the weights harder than the cardio. Diet is King.
