I have been on the EC stack for about 5 weeks now, and I really didn't notice any real significant changes up until this past week, and it now feels like the fat is truly melting off. I have been consuming between 1700-2200 calories and 160-200g protein daily pretty easily, and I have not been losing my strength.
Anyway, I notice that when I am late to take my EC at my regular time of day, it is not long before I start feeling EXTREMELY tired. It seems to me that I am becoming dependent on the caffeine, and I really don't want this to be the case for long. I also am concerned that my adrenals may become too fatigued, so I was wondering when it is recommended you cycle off EC and how do you go about doing it?
I honestly would like to remain on it for a bit longer because I am seeing such great results with it, but any input would be really appreciated. Thanks for the help guys, and good luck to you all with your fat losing goals.

EC Stack Cycling?
04-26-2012, 03:54 PM #2
I've always take 2 doses a day.
I do the following
full C and 1/2 the E
1/2 C and 1/2 E
in general, my last 2 weeks of any cycle of it is a tapering down period.
Cycling off the E doesn't affect me, cycling off of the Caffeine is a b****. I've tried going off cold turkey but by day 2 I had a headache that lasted overnight, slept like 12-16 hours the day after that and I was good.
Also, I've cycled off the E cold turkey, but tapered the Caffeine down to half doses as well for a few days.
I won't say this as a definite, but I've taken it up to 4-5 months straight with no issues. YMMV there. There is documentation on the 'net that states you don't "have to" cycle it. But I personally don't like to take anything for too long of a time whether it doesn't appear to be hurting me or not. Again YMMV there. Just putting that out there..........
I would scale down to 2 full doses and a 1/2 dose if so....then cut down to 1/2 doses and see the effect.
