Questions and Answers
AS LONG AS THE CYCLE/CRUZE DEBATE IS PUT TO REST I don't get why anyone WANTS to think this is a cycle, It is obviously a cruze experiment that so far is going awesome.
To start off I want to answer some of your questions
1 I am naturally large framed an I am mostly a mesomorph that leans towards some endomorph tendencies in some areas. So at 6'4 280 I have to eat a ton of protein to maintain mass. I would say my natural weight is 215 so I have 40lbs of muscle to maintain on top of my natural muscle mass and my goal is to get to 285 cut and steady by the end of the year but hopefully end of summer. At 255 I had the pinch pull test [I know its not accurate]done and I was 9.5-10% BF but I think I was a bit more. I don't strive to get to 6% with see through skin. I like the look of Arnold in movies so I have a six pack but its not rippled like a cobblestone road. So 10-12% plus 25 fat out of 280 whatever that is, is my BF now.
2 My diet: My diet is my take on carb cycling. Most of you guys are around 200lbs or under. and really don't know how much protein you need to eat as just maintenance and even chicken breasts have cals. JFYI Solid white tuna is the most protein packed food with very little cals. Before BB I absolutely hated tuna fish. The smell, taste, texture was disgusting. I'm sure you all know that real food protein is way better than supplement protein and tuna is hands down the most protein packed, low cal, cheap, meat you can eat so at age 22 I forced myself to eat tuna all the time and now I still don't care for it but it's acceptable. So my diet is variations of this: Breakfast; 1 cup oatmeal with 40gr protein powder mixed in lil milk and 8 raw eggs [yes I know cooked is more nutritious but I have a hectic life and it takes 1 minute while my oatmeal cooks to drink 8 eggs] snack: P butter and banana sw low carb bread and 1 pint 1% milk [over a day I drink over half a gallon of 1% milk a day. I would drink skim except there are tons of studies that 1% is better for weight loss, I don't have all the info in front of me but the lil fat combined with a hormone or chem in the milk makes your body start to burn it's own fat] Lunch is usually 2 cans of tuna w soy sauce, and some f***t and veggies. PWO snack is lowfat yogurt with pro powder mixed in. Post WO snack is a full nalgene pro shake in 1% milk totaling 70gr protein and metamucil. Dinner is chicken breasts and california mix veggies[5 lb bag of frozen broccoli cauliflower and carrots for 4$ BB dream] I take meds before bed on a kinda empty stomach then I eat a P butter banana sandwich low carb bread with pint of milk.
3 I want to put in some type of motabolism hyperdrive but this is a new thing to me. I could always cut off extra weight with my diet easily but times have changed.
I have looked into ECA, Clen, Yohimbine, T3 and T4, IM L-carnatine. I have PTSD and for some reason it has gotten worse in the last 2 years so I'm a bit cautious on what to use as a hyper metabo agent. Clen is a staple in plenty of ppls game but I have also had friends that tried it and said the sides were just intolerable. I will have to research it again to see if I think I can handle it. I started doing T3 100mcg and T4 200mcg until I got BW back from a few months ago and my T3 was above norm, T4 above norm, and T3 conversion above norm. So I didn't want to mess up a naturally good thing so I stopped after just over 1 week. I was told to stay away from yohimbine from other guys with PTSD saying it just put them so on edge and worried about everything. I really want to start IM L-carnatine for a few reasons; it forces glucose and fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells, it increases number of androgen receptors in muscle cells, increases the metabolism of fat storage by turning fat cells into brown fat cells uses the increased fatty acid in the blood for extreme increase in energy. I just have not heard a bad thing about IM L-carnatine. The downside is that my source had a 50% off sale and I spent every penny I had on around 120 viles lol. Then my 1000$ note 8 cellphone got stolen so I had to buy a cheap backup while it's being replaced. Long story short I spent all my money on gear then had a sh1t ton of unexpected expenses. So unless I sell some gear I'm broke for a long time.
4 I think someone asked about recent BW so prior to my Test 200mg c***se [about 2 months ago] my numbers were TT 860 [250-850] FT 280 [10-120] estro low norm, progesterone low norm, LH high norm, FSH norm, T3 high,T4 high, T3 conversion high, GH 8.1[<=7.6] SBHG very low [I take a supp that raises FT and lowers SBHG but this number was too low. SBHG is not some useless molecule that gobbles up your FT it is needed in many ways]
I will do a progress update soon but I'm out of time and tired of typing
