Ive been off from lifting for almost 3months and in three months ive lost alot of my gains and gained alot of my losses if you know what i mean.Anyway i have basic cuts from D.S. and was wondering if this alone will be good or should it be stacked and if so with what? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Now, let's talk about your question:
I would recommend going to FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal , a free online food journal that also calculates BMR. I would just use this as a way to track foods, percentages, and total cals. For the most part, I always make custom foods (by looking at the labels of what I eat) and compile lists that way. Otherwise, you don't really know exactly what you are getting.
Next, I would focus on what kind of a diet you would want. In other words, do you want to do a 40/40/20 diet (protein/carbs/fats)? or a CKD (1 gram of protein per lean body mass, green/fiberous veggies as your only carb, and the rest from healthy fats)? I highly recommend CKD, but you really need to get it down to a science. Side effects are bad breath and urine. EXTREMELY good at shedding fat if used long term (otherwise, you just lose mostly water weight).
Next, I would focus on exercise. Cardio in the AM will make or break you. It sucks, but if it was easy, everybody would be a lean machine :bb2: Make sure you still compile resistance/weight training into your program and ingest BCAAs and a good protein drink directly after working out.
Lastly, worry about supps. DCP, Clen, T3, T4, albuterol, ECA, lipoderm ultra... the list goes on. I would recommend picking up a bottle of DCP from Sport Nutrition Supplements for Bodybuilding and Fitness needs . I love the stuff! Also, Anabolic Pump (also found at Sport Nutrition Supplements for Bodybuilding and Fitness needs ) is something that I now use and will keep using as a staple in my supplement protocol. I've seen great results with clen and T3, but you really need to know what you are doing. You can suffer otherwise (make sure you do research on any supplement!!!) ECA (ephedrine/Caffeine/Asprin) is a milder, and better alternative IMHO.
Supps are honestly the last thing to worry about. The other info above is more important to have in check. If you feel you do, then have at it, hoss
Good luck in the future, and enjoy anabolicminds!
EDIT:I cannot speak for basic cuts, but many others on this board have used and loved the stuff.
Thanks alot! I think I will do as you suggest and make sure my diet is totally in check. I think i will also try the ckd. Thanks again!Originally Posted by HairyLarry35
No problem! Really research into a proper CKD. All low fat stuff cannot be used (for the most part because of carbs), no milk, no fruit, and the veggies you do eat need to be like brocolli or spinach.
Anyway, go find out and have fun learning.
Keep the basic cuts man it worked wonders for me. I picked some basic cuts, and a couple others form DS real cheap at the arnold last year. I org. got 2 bott. of Stim X for energy and realized it only worked for a few weeks until i guess i became uesed to it and stopped. It was after the arnold that i came back and started cutting, and found that by stacking stim x with basic cuts, gave me very nice results with my cardio. Just be forewarned, Stimulant X eliminates appetite lol, so you wont be getting alot of food, which prob. also helped me. I think at that time i prob lived mostly off of protein shakes and small snacks like a can of tuna or small ckn breast. Worked great for me, and im buying more for a cut in a few months so..
Also Stimx says to only use it every other day or so, so my dosage of basic was the usual, with 1-2 evry other day of stim x, for around 4 weeks
Hairy, is DCP a stimulant at all or is it a non stim. I'm looking for a good non-stim assistant to fat loss.
DCP is non stim (99% pretty sure), but has thermo properties.
Poseidon to combat any negative effects and keep you body operating optimally. A good BCAA supplement like Excell would be a great addition and would stack very well with Poseidon.
I would be happy to email you a rough diet and exercise program that is designed to reduce fat while preserving and/or gaining lean muscle mass. It may be a good starting point for you. I wrote it for my brother in law whos had great results with it, so I thought I'd pass it along for others to benefit from as well. ;-)
