View Full Version : newbie to cutting
04-04-2003, 12:20 PM
First of all, I would like to say thanks thus far for taking time out to post great useful and motivational information. I do have a couple of question/concerns. little info about me- I am about 5'6", 220, 27% BF. So, I have a decent amount of fat to take off. I bulked for about a year. I am really good about cardio. I have a heart rate monitor so I am aware of the level of intensity that I am working at. I eat really well until dinner time.
Does anyone have advice as to how to curb the dinnertime binge?
Also, I am planning on taking Biotest T2, but I don't know exactly how to escalate the dose. Any suggestions?
One more thing, I would like to include an ECA, but I am hesitant since I have a history with asthma. Is there anyone else who has asthma and has used an ECA stack??
Thanks so much
sorry for all the questions.

Buglove....sorry for missing you here! Don't feel ignored, but I am not sure this is the best place to get your questions answered.
Regarding taking ECA stack with asthma.....ask your doctor!
Don't take advice regarding medical conditions from anyone here.
Ephedra can actually help during a asthma attack. But as far as using on a daily basis, or taking in conjuction with other medications....then you might be asking for trouble. So check with your doctor on that one.
Regarding binging. Are you eating 5-6x day? What is your typical day's diet like? You want to make sure that you never go over 3 hours without having something to eat.
Biotest T2, I know nothing about. You might want to post in the general supplement board....you would get more response there.
Welcome to BB and I wish you well! :)

Thanks TrishB. I just started keto, and that is really helping me on not breaking diet during the evening.
Also, I have talked to my Doctor, and the only reason she told me not to take it was the fact that the product may contain more or less ephedra. Otherwise, she gave no other reasons. I just wanted to see if there was anyone else out there with a history of asthma who has taken ephedra before.
thanks for responding!!!
hey, right now I am cycling the ECA stack and I also have mild asthma. I have had no problems whatsoever with it....if anything, its aided my breathing while exercising.

That is good to know. I actually started my first cycle today, half the dose to test my tolerance. I feel fine. I figured that if I could have tolerated a norepinephrine IV drip in the past, ephedra would be O.K. Yeah, I had some bad asthma. Haven't had an attack in 4 years though!
thanks for the response

I have mild asthma (triggered by allergies mostly) and eca has never bothered me...and like tay it actually helps my breathing during cardio exercise.
But always ask your doctor if it's okay. Mind you if you're in Canada they'll say no because we no longer are supposed to have products with ephedra on the shelves.

thanks blonde diva. It has helped with my exercised induced asthma too. After all, that is what the chinese used it for originally. I am really glad that I use a heart rate monitor. My breathing was a lot easier than normal, if I didn't have my monitor, I probably would have thought I wasn't working that hard and pushed it too much. thanks for the info

I've had asthma all my life and I use ephedrine on a regular basis. I take 25mg of ephedrine 3x per day along with 200mg of caffiene and 200mg of aspirin. After a couple of weeks, I'll stop everything for a few days before picking it back up again.
Burn the calories, eat a few small meals throughout the day consisting mostly of proteins and fats and get on a good weight training schedule. Keep your weights upwards of 75% of your max and shoot for 5x5 or 4x6 for most exercises. Use basic movements like presses, squats, deadlifts and some rowing movements.

I would ditch the T2 and try T3 since T2 has been shown to be nearly (or the same...cant remember) suppressive as the T3 for TSH WITHOUT the metabolic goodies that T3 brings.
T3 has quite a good history in terms of fat loss for women (and men as well) so if you use it in reasonable dosages then things should fare fine.
EC stack is good and you may try it with T3 for synergestic results. Also it's not about cardio or relying on supplements which I 'think' you may be doing (I could be wrong). It's all about diet when it comes to losing fat.
Well, make that genetics (your brain, fat cells, all programmed to give you fits! arrgghh) but you know what I mean. :)
Find a diet that's high in protein and get some essential fatty acids? Do you like carbs? Go for carbs....though with women I believe they have had more success with lower fat and lower carb diets to help mobilized stored stubborn fat such as hips/thights. I do likw bootie so I dont mind if baby got back.

SlickRick..Thanks for the info. I am not relying on supps at all. I have been into a serious cardio/lifting regimen for about 2 years now. I saw some great fat loss, quit smoking and put some back on.
Now, I am into the CKD thing--High fat and protein and low carbs. As far as the supps are concerned, I have taken some ripped fuel like 5 times. My body has a high tolerance for the stuff so I am being super cautious. I don't want to overdo the EC without knowing it.
T2-sitting on my dresser unopened
T3-I don't even have access to
