    Stimulants or lower calories.


    I am trying to lose fat while maintaining as much muscle mass as possible or increasing. Im currently doing a standard ghrp-6+CJC-1295 no DAC x3 dosing regime for this very purpose and its going great. My question is, given my peptide usage, would it be better for my purpose to add stimulants to the mix or lower calories. My theory is that since im using anti catabolic substances, the extra calories (which would be 40% protein) that i will be able to eat combined with the stimulants should get me to my goal faster than just dropping calories. Of course i could be completely wrong which is why im asking.

    Lower calories.Even if you add test and var into that mix,and DNP.To get to your goal faster,you have to eat less.Pretty simple,don't over think things.

    keep calories high as possible, do a slow slow cut. add in 10-20 minutes of cardio 2x a week or so, and see how that goes for a week. ECA would be a good addition when your weight loss plateaus or ECY

    My calories are at a good level right now. Ive been having good constant progress in the past 2 months. Im actually cutting at 3200 calories on off days and 3800 on workout days (I know my metabolism is crazy, im only 170lb). My question would be in order to "step it up" would be it a better idea to say drop 200cals/day or instead add a stimulant.

    I like a combination of less calories, more low intensity cardio like walking or more hitt intervals, and cycling stims 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. I prefer t3 and albuterol reasonable doses if im really trying to cut. Try a combo of all three and change the variables to see what works best for you. If $ is a factor cutting calories and adding cardio are free.

    I have 3 weeks until i have to travel and Id like to drop a couple more pounds of fat if possible. Im currently at around 9% bf. I do have t3 on hand but i was saving it until I come back from my trip to use it in a PH cycle im planning, unless you guys think the peptides are anabolic enough to use with the t3.

    T3 is inexpensive and you get a lot of doses if using liquid form. Don't dose it too high if you're not on anabolics. 50mcg -75 mcg worked for me. Down time between t3 cycles is shorter so you may be able run now and later on cycle if the schedule works out. I'd save the commercial supps for post t3. I like forskolin products, you could use combo of froskolin and ECA/other stim when you cycle off the t3.

    I started dosing t3 at 25mcg/day today, since im only 170lb imma keep it at that for a week and see how it works out. If not much happens im going up it to 50mcg/day. Any advice as far as diet/workout/other specific while on t3?

    The key to losing fat, gaining muscle, and still being able to eat whatever you want;

    Supplements!



















    Seriously though, no. Slight caloric deficit, solid workout plan, and consistency.

    Given your time frame, though I wouldnt do this but its what you sound like you want. Do it all at one shot!

    Drop your calories
    Add a couple more sessions of cardio
    Stim it up with Dexaprine
    Save your T3 for when you get back.

    Some good advice in here all I would say is that Yohimbine would probably help you, so looking at something like Dexaprine XR might be beneficial.
