Hydroxycut

I've been taking Hydroxycut Advanced, sold for $29.99 at Superstore for 72 capsule. On it for 2.5 weeks now and I shaved off 7 pounds. Good dieting and HIIT every day. Not so much on the side effects because I'm extremely habituated to caffeine. Since I'm having such an awesome result, I'm going to switch to the Hydroxycut Hardcore Pro and see how it goes. Hopefully GNC carries it. If you are looking to shave off some weight, I think this is something to consider.

Anyone else tried Hydroxycut?

i hve heard of it before and it' snot uncommon, it' sbeen out for a while.

shaving 7 pounds ain't that hard. running 3 days a week shaves off 10 pounds if u run about a month. The first 10 pounds is extremely easy, it's the last 10 pounds that's hard.

it's all about dieting.

most of the weight you lose in the beginning is just water weight... see if you notice any physical changes

i used it. I kept taking 2-3 pills in the morning and 2-3 before my workout, so it would consistently stay in my body. Dunno if that was good or bad (prob bad) for me but it did its job and that's what one of the personal trainers told me. And i used it while doing RPM classes, so it made me sweat like a pig. Overall it did great in the sense that i lost FAT and weight, but i hated the feeling it gave me in the men's section.. lol it felt really weird

eca stacks (minus the aspirin) works. just make sure to increase dosage in increments.

1st week - 1 ephedrine 1 caffeine
2nd week - 2 ephedrine 1 caffeine
3rd week+4th week - 3 ephedrine 1 caffeine
rest for 4 weeks
repeat

with cardio and a clean diet, was able to drop 25lbs in 3 months. it was a bit extreme in my case but in moderation ull see results. healthwise, my friend whose becoming a doctor suggested eca stacks to me when i was looking to cut. he uses it as well and did his own extensive research before taking it so take that for what its worth.

Hmm thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into taking ECA minus the A. How long did your friend go on ECA?

i didn't take aspirin, but i did take fish oils, its suppose to help counteract an increase in blood pressure. most people only do it for 6-8 week cycles. some take a month break and do another cycle

and drink alot of water... read a funny story on the misc about guy getting hemriods during his stack, and almost passing out in a public shower

me and my buddy who also took eca stacks differed in dosage. he found 3 ephedrine to be too much so he kept it at 2. i on the other hand could take 3 fine so dont be scared to lower the dosage if the feeling is too intense. and drink lots and lots of water cause u will sweat like a pig.

do the steps, i maxed out at day 7-9 dose and continued untill i ran out of eph

Day 1 - This day you just take 1 dose to test whether you are hypersensitive to ephedrine (very rare). The dose will be 1 E .5C
- symptoms of fast heart rate, and slight jitters are typical - like the feeling you get from having a lot of coffee.
Day 2-3 - You take 3 doses of 1 E .5C minimum 4 hours apart. I suggest keeping it so your last dose is at least 6 hours away from your bedtime.
Day 4-6 - Your dosing will be 2E 1C, 1E .5C, 1E .5C
Day 7-9 - 2E 1C, 2E 1C, 1E .5C
Day 9-11 - 2E 1C 3x/day
Day 12-14 - 3E 1C, 3E 1C, 2E 1C
Day 15 and onward - 3E 1C 3x/day

Now I really want to try out EC. Even Hydroxycut lowered my appetite as well.

Hydroxycut has 200mg caffeine per pill, and you have to take 4 pills in 1 day. So each day I'm taking in 800mg of caffeine. That's more than the EC dosage mentioned above. I'm extremely caffeine tolerant so 800mg has little effect on me, except for increased sweating. Apparently some of my friends tried Hydroxycut and couldn't continue because of the caffeine.

I stopped taking Hydroxycut and moved to EC stack. As someone who is caffeine tolerant, I still find EC stack ridiculously strong. I am currently on 2E1C dose, 3 times a day, and that's more than I can handle. Heart rate up significantly, almost palpitation. A huge drop in appetite. I didn't even want to eat 1 meal a day. I'm going back down to 2E1C 2 times a day instead of 3 times a day.

How the hell can people take 3E1C 3 times a day?!
