Here we discuss the Love Story between Bodybuilders and Ephedrine.

Differences Between Male And Female Bodybuilders

In my previous article, Female Bodybuilders: Fit, Strong And Yet Feminine, I told you about the caricatured image of female bodybuilders years ago and how it changed when the federations understood that muscularity in competition was casting a poor image and when they decided to attract desperate housewives 😉 mainly by showing athletes who were fit and strong without sacrificing their feminity.

You Won’t Look Like Arnold

Beautiful Female BodybuilderHow do you achieve such fitness results without losing your feminity? What are the main differences between men and women in bodybuilding? This is the primary concern of women who hesitate lifting weights: will I get big, will the size of my thighs increase with this training?
The answer is clearly no: depending on your workout routine, you will not increase your muscle size but your muscle’s strength. Even if you train « like a man », you will not gain muscle like men because it is their famous hormone called testosterone which allows this impressive increase in muscle mass. Women have only a small fraction of men’s testosterone levels and their muscle mass will become stronger, not bigger.
So how come that the first female bodybuilders managed to achieve these muscle mass like men? Well, guess what? They probably had hormonal treatments which made them look like men…
But this time is over, now you will gain just a bit of muscle but in a feminine way, toned, dense, nicely shaped.

Physiological Differences

Female Bodybuilder Lifting WeightsDo women need to workout like men by the way? What are the physiological differences?
In fact men and women workout in the same way. Contrary to the popular belief, women do not need to spend their time in cardiovascular exercise while men lift weights, it’s a cliché.
The truth is that women and men have different body composition and metabolism, thus their training will vary a bit and the results will be different.
For instance, men bodybuilders will target 4 or 5% body fat when women having naturally a higher percentage will set a reasonable goal at 10 to 12%.
Body fat distribution is different, women will have more on the thighs, glutes and triceps while men will bear their fat mostly in the abdomen (the famous « beer belly » or « tire »), in the chest also and upper arms. This fat distribution is called gynoid for women and android for men, and commonly named « pear or apple » fat distribution. This is a global approach of course, there is no strict line between gynoid and android fat, for instance men and women have often « love handles » in common 😉
Another big difference is the muscle mass, more developed by men, and as a result men’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is higher. This will allow them to have greater food intake for the same stable weight or to lose fat easier than women — I know, it’s unfair 😉 Remember that your weight equation is mostly determined by calories in versus calories out!

A Different Diet For Female Bodybuilders

Different Diet For Male And Female BodybuildersWhat about diet? Should it be different between women and men bodybuilders?
Women metabolize more fatty acids but fewer carbohydrates and proteins than men. This is important since fat is so devaluated in women’s eyes, being the first enemy in their diet. In fact, essential fatty acids (EFAs) are more important for women than for men, and EFAs don’t necessarily finish in your fat storage, they even promote the fat burning process and they represent a source of energy which stabilize insulin and blood sugar levels. Men have a different energy profile, they require more carbohydrates and proteins than lipids.
Except the difference in this metabolization of lipids and carbohydrates, men and women should have the same diets, with a recommendation for low carbohydrates cycling diets for better fat burning results for women.

Which Type Of Workout For Women?

Female Bodybuilding, Nice Outdoor WorkoutWhat is a typical exercising program for female bodybuilders?
Let’s start with a very common mistake: most of the time women overestimate cardio exercises and avoid lifting weights, probably due to the fear of gaining too much muscle mass. A typical training plan will run over 12 weeks, 5 days a week, varying repetitions, exercises and intensity for the main muscle groups (legs, chest and back). I know many female bodybuilders who follow these programs quite religiously. No pain, no gain 😉
It’s hard to recommend one of these programs, you have so many of them! It depends on your starting point and your goals. Just do a quick search online and select a serious one, preferably with videos — careful though if you search Youtube, it is often loaded with crap. And these stupid comments…
Here is a good piece of advice by Jamie Eason:

As you will see, many of these fitness programs include High Interval Intensity Training: you know there is no quicker way to lose fat 😉

Last Words

Ladies, if you really want to lose weight, you could learn many lessons from bodybuilders in most key factors: the right mindset, motivation, goal setting, time management, hard work, nutrition, coaching, etc…
Eat less, move more and get support: well, female bodybuilders have it all right 😉
What about ephedrine for female bodybuilders? Nothing special, it works as fine as for male bodybuilders because we all have the same CNS 😉
By the same effects, I mean: energy booster, appetite suppression, lean muscle mass is preserved and lipolysis (fat burn) is increased. But you also have the same risk of side effects if you don’t know the basic rules: make sure to drink a lot of water, avoid heat — this should be easy at this period of the year 😉 and of course no HIIT sessions when having ephedrine, ephedra or EC stacks.
If you live in the USA don’t even think of ephedrine HCL delivered to your place: you know it is no more available from reputable sites. From time to time I see one or two sites that pretend to ship pure ephedrine HCL from Canada to the U.S. but personally I wouldn’t buy from them. Stay on the safe (legal) side and get one of the time-tested ephedra products from our recommended websites.

Female Bodybuilders: Fit, Strong And Yet Feminine

Some time ago I said that I would write about bodybuilding for women: you know that bodybuilders are frequently mentioned here because they buy ephedrine on a regular basis for cutting but in my previous posts I was focusing on male bodybuilders so it’s time now to do justice to my female friends and all women who decided one day to consider bodybuilding. And I’m sure that all guys will be interested too 😉

Manly Female BodybuilderFor weight loss as for any other topic, it’s always interesting to learn from the best, even if your goal is to lose a few pounds and not to start a career in bodybuilding. I know that many women will never consider bodybuilding because they fear losing their feminity and I’d like to address this concern here: did you see recent pictures of female bodybuilders? Do you know that their image has totally changed, and not by accident but as the result of a clear strategy of the national bodybuilding federation? Indeed when you see how sexy they are now, with their toned, lean muscles, flat stomach and iron butt, you realize how far we are now from the old image of the 80’s when Miss Physique America was looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger with a ponytail 😉

Female Bodybuilders in the 70’s

You were probably not born when women have been first invited to some bodybuilding competitions 😉
In fact it was not really competitions, as these women were chosen by the organizers based on attractiveness, not bodybuilding: they were just here to entertain the male audience…
It was closer to bikini contests or fashion shows with women competing in high-heeled shoes…

Building Muscle Like Men

The next evolution came from professionalism when women competitors started training like men, favoring muscularity over feminity: for most people, female bodybuilders were looking like frogs with their huge thighs and a V thorax that Marvel Super Heroes would envy – male heroes only, not female for sure as these female bodybuilders had no breasts but pecs. In two words, they were just looking like smaller male bodybuilders. This image did strike people’s imaginations and cast suspicion of prohibited substances to achieve these results.
Feeling the danger, the national federations changed their strategy in order to promote the feminine image of female bodybuilding and they introduced new criteria so that women would be judged on “healthy appearance, face, makeup, and skin tone” and less importance on muscularity.
This has been the start of a new era, where we had the feeling that top models were coming to bodybuilding 😉

Posing Nude in Playboy

Cute Female BodybuilderMost people (especially males) began to change their mind and to find female bodybuilders quite sexy when they saw Anita Gandol and Erika Mes posing nude in Playboy. Don’t expect a picture here, this post is for women first 😉
Thanks to mainstream exposure (first Ms. Olympia life on TV in 1991) female bodybuilders became progressively fitness models, their body being perceived as fit and healthy with these nicely shaped curves and their full, toned aspect. I have many male friends who have changed their mind and started thinking that these female bodybuilders were in fact more attractive than most skinny models in fashion show. Fortunately this repositioning has brought a lot of women to bodybuilding. Some female bodybuilders became famous and had a lot of attention from the mainstream media. Average Joes and plain Janes then realized that you could be a woman, fit, strong and yet sexy! Honestly: would you think that Brooke Holladay (this picture) is a pro bodybuilder? Compared to the first pic showing this bulky, manly female bodybuilder?

A New Public Image

The image of female bodybuilders also changed when people discovered these athletes in their daily life activities, at home and not in competitions or training in the gym: their initial public image changed from asexual men caricatures to sexy women, sometimes mothers, with a beautiful body (this butt in tight jeans…). It became finally clear that feminity has much more to do with your appearance, hairstyle, make-up, clothes or the way you move, than with the fact that you lift weights.

OK, enough history for now. In my next article I will focus on the main physiological differences between men and women when it comes to shaping your body. And also a few words on diet and workout specifically for women.


As said in introduction, bodybuilders are a good example to follow if you want to burn fat: they have the right mindset, motivation and they work really hard for their body.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that you have to be Superman or Superwoman to achieve these weight loss results!
In fact you can have pretty good results without bodybuilding or even exercising at start, as explained in my last post: 3 Steps To Lose Weight in Q4. The key success factor will be the physiological support of ephedrine or real ephedra alkaloids.
By the way! I see many new websites telling that you can get ephedrine HCL from Canada: don’t trust them, you would just lose time and money, not weight.

Cardio To Burn That Stubborn Fat

If you jumped to this page by mistake, welcome first 😉
This post is part of a series of articles about the famous bodybuilding cutting phase and how it can help “normal” people in their weight loss plan. Here is the first part, nutrition when cutting, and the second about exercising to cut fat, not muscle.

Seriously, No Cardio At All?

Seriously, No Cardio At All?Here is where I disagree with most people about exercising during a cutting phase: the common advice is to avoid long aerobic sessions because it would shrink your muscle mass.
Some sites even recommend NO cardio at all! For me it makes no sense. I know that most bodybuilders hate cardio but this is not a reason to tell people to avoid it. Think about it in a reasonable way: why should you exclude cardiovascular exercises that have evident benefits for your health just because some people tell you that “catabolic is bad” and “anabolic is good”? In their mind, catabolic exercises result inevitably in muscle loss and anabolic sessions are the best way to grow muscle fast. OK, but not the ONLY way to build muscle or to preserve it: what about these athletes who train cardio during years? Don’t they have enough muscles? 😉 They often have amazing physiques with lean, dense muscles built over years that will also last for years by minimal exercising – Time does not respect what is done without him.

Am I a bit overreacting?

HIIT is just too hard when you are overweightMaybe 😉 I just have the feeling that a lot of information found in fitness sites might be misleading for overweight people. When I read that cardiovascular exercise is just a waste of time, sorry… Words are important and all people interested in weight loss are not athletes or even highly trained people, so please no generalization when comparing the respective weight loss results of HIIT compared to steady-state cardio training, especially for people with a BMI over 30!

Cardio Training Health Benefits

Exercising has many health benefitsLet me tell it again: cardio training presents many health benefits, including those associated with weight loss but not only.

  • Your heart is a muscle, if you get it pumping at a higher rate with regular cardiovascular exercise it will become stronger: every beat will pump more blood, your resting heart rate and blood pressure will decrease and consequently you will significantly reduce the risk of heart diseases.
  • If you run regularly, you will increased your muscle strength and endurance, your joint flexibility and bone density and thus reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Your blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels will decrease progressively.
  • Cardio training will also reduce stress, anxiety or depression and will have a positive effect on your sleep.

Losing That Stubborn Fat

Cardio Training Increases CapillariesNow more specifically about weight loss benefits: if you exercise in the aerobic mode, let’s say 30 percent below your anaerobic threshold, you will lose fat inevitably. Aerobic training increases the number of capillaries in your muscles and in your fat tissues. This is very important: capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in your body, transport nutrients and wastes in both ways to your tissues. The more capillaries you have, the more oxygen will be served to your muscle and fat tissues. From several medical studies we know that aerobic exercise has two major benefits:

  • it will improve your capillary density by the growth of new capillaries [1]
  • it will also improve the effectiveness of the existing capillaries, regardless of density [2].

The end result is that your muscles will become more efficient at using fat during exercise and even at rest. Plus something that will ring a bell for most you: stubborn fat anyone? Developing new blood vessels in your fat tissues is a mandatory condition to burn this stubborn fat in these desert areas 😉
Cardio training will also help your hormonal balance by stimulating epinephrine, norepinephrine, insulin which all play a role in fat burn but also cortisol and endorphins, the feel-good hormones.

In a Nutshell

Losing That Stubborn Fat With CardioWhen you are in a cutting phase, you do your best efforts to lose fat, so why should you ignore cardio that will burn fat and especially this stubborn fat that is so hard to mobilize, even if the price to pay is a small reduction of your muscle mass? You will have time later to build it again! For me it is much more difficult to get rid of fat than to build muscle. That’s what I was meaning by “think about it in a reasonable way”, it’s a matter of proportions and common sense: it’s not a disaster if you lose a very small part of your muscle mass, considering that you lose a lot of body fat at the same time. It’s not all or nothing, black or white, there are many shades of grey in between — something like fifty, I’ve heard 😉 It is possible to reduce this muscle mass loss as low as possible and we will detail that in the next post, along with recommendations for your exercising plan, of course taking into account the physiologic support of ephedrine for fat burn.

Cutting Phase: Lose Fat, Not Muscle

In a previous article I have listed a few recommendations about nutrition when cutting. Now I would like to cover exercising, with one focus: how to lose fat and not muscle during your training sessions. Depending on digressions I will see how far it goes with this article 😉 In fact I would like to take this opportunity to do a refresher on some basics (aerobic vs anaerobic exercise, catabolic vs anabolic, fat oxidation, fasted cardio, HIIT vs LISS or LSD – in plain english, High Intensity Interval Training vs Low Intensity Steady State vs Long Slow Distance, etc..). And in all cases with lessons that non-bodybuilders could learn from cutting for a weight loss plan.
If I digress too much, feel free to tell me 🙂

Bulking and Cutting Cycles

Let’s start with a typical newbie question 😉 How long should a bulking and cutting phase ideally last?And what is the best time in year for that?

Planning Your Bulking And Cutting CyclesRegarding the first question, it depends on your metabolism but a reasonable period of time for bulking would be three months, due to the efforts and body changes. Regarding the cutting phase, do it until you have reached your fat loss goals. No hurry – cutting might be hard in the beginning until you find your own way, I will come back to that later.

Now the second question: best time for bulking and cutting. Years ago the leitmotiv was: bulk up in winter and cut down in summer! Then people thought that there could be a better way than alternatively building muscle and fat and then dieting for fat loss: they proposed a so-called «Clean Bulking» meant to increase muscle and a minimum of fat through cardiovascular workouts during the bulking phase. This idea is quite surprising because bodybuilders think that cardio training was counterproductive during the anabolic phase, tending to use muscle as energy source thus reducing the muscle mass.

I will not take a stand here but rather give you my own advice based on experience and recent discussions within the team and with people around me (mainly doctors). In fact, due to the pressure that Derek has put on me, I thought that it would be fair to challenge my own point of view 😉

Especially with recent medical studies that I had no time to review, considering the workload and lack of time since.. well, since last summer! OK, time to catch up 🙂

Quick Reminder About Nutrition

Proteins For Your Cutting PhaseVery important: keep your protein intake at the right level! Prefer low fat proteins from tuna, salmon, chicken, turkey, egg whites and lean red meat. This is highly recommended if you want to keep your muscle mass and lose fat at the same time: if you lower your protein intake during your diet, your body has no other choice than breaking down muscle tissue as protein source for energy.

Help your body

Choose A Good Post-Workout Supplement For Your CuttingWith a caloric deficit you will see that your workout will become much harder. I will detail below, the quick advice here is to find a good pre-workout supplement and even more important, a good post-workout one to support your recovering process: if taken immediatly after your workout, it will help your body to build new muscle tissue and to stop the breakdown of the existing one. The best post-workout supplements are digested quickly and provide high quality amino acids, preferably BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) like this one in picture (click for details). Make sure also to choose a supplement that is in line with your dieting efforts.

Get Ephedrine

HellFire Eph150 is one of the strongest ephedra products sold onlineAs mentioned in the previous article, ephedrine is the perfect match for your cutting phase. It’s not a surprise if bodybuilders rely on it when they want to get rid of the fat that came during bulking along with muscle growth. You can use ephedrine alone or preferably in an EC stack, in both cases it will boost your results by:

  • raising your metabolism
  • boosting the lipolysis process (starting the breakdown of fat cells earlier and converting them into energy that can be used for exercising)
  • raising your energy level
  • lowering your appetite as indirect dopamine agonist

OK, I will now give you some time to do your research on post-workout supplements, hopefully at the same place where you already buy ephedrine in order to save a bit on shipping costs. Meanwhile I will prepare the next post about the frequently asked question: is cardio training recommended during a cutting phase, knowing the risk of muscle loss?

You know what? I’m happy 🙂

This last weekend I have sent an email to all subscribers to let them know about the recent offer by NutraCave and I had the pleasure to receive this reply:

Here is the picture that Derek attached to his mail: honored by Derek Rutherford






Look at that! I realized I was giving him weight loss recommendations and also telling him about a coming post on “how to keep your muscle mass when dieting” 😉
By the way I wonder how I would look like if I lost 5lbs of muscle 😉

Anyway I was not sure about the irony in Derek’s sentence, “I would love to know how to maintain muscle mass and get ripped“, knowing his achievements?
I thought it would be polite to reply and explain that I have many readers and subscribers, from professional bodybuilders to total beginners in terms of weight loss, hence my following reply:

Hi Derek,
Wow! Impressive 🙂
I feel a bit lame, having sent such email when for sure you don’t need my weight loss information… I’m in touch with other guys bodybuilders and they also make fun of me when I give them some general advice about dieting or exercising 🙂
The good point is that many others are just struggling with their extra pounds and i’m really happy to help them. Eat less, move more, get support. And take example from bodybuilders…
Don’t you mind if I post your email on my blog, to show others the funny part of me telling you how to lose weight? 🙂 Would be cool. Just let me know.

You know what? Derek is a nice guy. Here is what I got in return:

Hi Mike
You do a great job. Your articles are invaluable, very honest and informative. I appreciate you staying in touch with up to date offers etc. I certainly don’t mind if you use the e-mail/photo on your website.
Wishing you and your family a happy festive season.
Take Care.
Keep up the good work.

Is that cool?!

This is a kind of feedback you don’t get very often and believe me, from a pro bodybuilder like Derek it’s something I really appreciate. Makes me think that the time spent writing articles and helping people is worth it. This is also what I mean when I speak of trusted members: these guys you can trust for sure when they give you a feedback about online shops or ephedrine products.

OK. Now I feel some pressure regarding this coming post about “keeping your muscle mass when dieting” 🙂
I think I will rewrite it a bit 😉
To be sure to give a good information to all, from beginners to guys like Derek 😉

Keep in touch,

Cutting Phase, Achieving 4 Percent Body Fat

If you had a look at our Bodybuilding page, you already know our high consideration for bodybuilders and why we usually refer to them for weight loss: usually you don’t start bodybuilding without some psychological reasons, these guys have the right mindset, they work hard for their body (a bit of narcissism, maybe?), they don’t hesitate to ask for support in the gym, they exchange best practices in forums, and last but not least, they know how to diet down.

Take Example From Bodybuilders

Ephedrine helps bodybuilders during cutting phasesSo even if you are not really willing to walk in the steps of Arnold Schwarzenegger, there is no doubt that this good example will help you if you resolve to lose weight, men and women as well (by the way we will come back to Bodybuilding for Women later).

If you meet a bodybuilder and you want to pretend that you are familiar with these things, just ask him: “Bulking or cutting?”
In fact bodybuilders alternate these two phases, bulking up to gain muscle (anabolism) and then cutting down (catabolism) to lose this fat which came inevitably from the bulking phase. Don’t get us wrong: most of the time they don’t have a lot of fat to lose, no obesity here: they want to go from 8% body fat to 4% or less. We know many people who would be happy with their starting figures 😉  The main goal is aesthetic of course, in order to lose enough underskin fat to show their chiseled cut muscles. In some other languages, the “cutting phase” is called “drying phase”. How do they achieve this fat loss and how to learn from it for your weight loss? This is what we will detail though nutrition and exercising.

Cutting Phase: Nutrition Guidelines

Synergy between EC stack and DietBodybuilders take their nutrition very seriously: you would be amazed to see their knowledge on this topic. Some of them take it easy but from experience it is not the majority, most of them fix their diet in a very precise way and stick to it (remember what we said regarding their psychological profile? They have the right mindset and a clear motivation translated into action). They work so hard during their sets of weight lifting repetitions that they don’t want to jeopardize their results with a lack of mental toughness or willpower. When you know the high price of what you got, you don’t want to mess it up for some junk food during the cutting phase. We don’t want to generalize here, it is hard for everybody to reduce food intakes below your body’s needs, but frankly bodybuilders have the right psychological dispositions which make it happen where others will fail.

Let’s detail their typical diet at cutting phase and see how you can benefit from it.
First you need to know exactly how many calories you will have daily. Either buy a book detailing how much protein or carbohydrate there is in any food, and do your math, or go to an online site proposing a calorie counter page. We highly suggest the first choice which will force you to see your food differently, knowing its composition and its calories. After a while you are able to “weight” any menu only by reading it.
Then you need to know your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) or your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR): the goal is to be about 500 calories below your BMR.
During a cutting phase, the average intake is around 40% protein, 40% carbohydrate and 20% fat. Some nutritionists recommend 25% protein, 55% carbohydrate and 20% fat. Some say that 15% fat is fine also but I don’t recommend it, 20% is reasonable.
In order to keep a constant metabolism, it is better to have 5 or 6 meals daily, the last one before 7 pm.


  • Keep it as it was during the bulking phase or a bit below, in order to preserve your muscle mass: usually 1 gram per pound body weight per day (2.2 grams/kg) which is already quite high, the important point is to keep that level or your body would look for another source of energy
  • Exclude beef and pork from your choices; eat fish, tuna, egg whites, chicken or turkey instead – by the way, never fried!


This is your source for energy and it is more complex than “sugar” as thought by most people. There is also confusion about the glycemic index, which tells you how fast saccharides will raise the blood glucose level.

  • Avoid “quick sugars” passed directly to blood and stored as fat when not used immediately. Prefer complex carbohydrates – starches – such as grains (wheat, rice, barley, oats), beans, corn and potatoes.
  • Try to avoid processed food as much as possible, just buy fresh food and cook!
  • This might be hard for some people, but still: avoid eating bread during your cutting phase. Quick hint: don’t buy bread 😉
  • Last point: it would be better if your carbohydrate could go decreasing during the day, ideally carbs only at the four first meals and nothing for the two last ones. Don’t worry, carbohydrates are not essential nutrients for man, you will survive 😉

Additionally, you will be probably happy to learn that during this cutting phase you are more than encouraged to eat plenty of vegetables! Go for lettuce, broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, onions, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes. Fruits are recommended too, preferably with low glycemic index, because they are tasty and will help your mood, and because their antioxidants have a positive effect on free radicals and toxins.


We finish with the Hated Family, Fat – in fact vital for us, but perceived as The Enemy by half of the population. Back to the point:

  • As we said, total fat intake shouldn’t exceed 20% of your total day calories
  • No alcohol
  • Avoid industrial food
  • No fried food
  • Even if recently discussed, prefer (poly) unsaturated fats (seeds, fish, nuts, algae, leafy greens) to saturated fats (butter, coconut oil, palm oil, dairy products)
  • This one may hurt: avoid sauces! Use spices instead.

Last point: drink a lot of water.

Ephedrine during a cutting phase Prefers Kaizen Ephedrine HCLEphedrine or ephedra alkaloids will make it easier for you during a cutting phase. If you are familiar with our site you probably know all reasons why, I will mention them rapidly here for newcomers 😉

1. Fat burn

Ephedrine or ephedra alkaloids (difference? here) have thermogenetic effects that raise your basal metabolic rate. As a result, lipolysis is stimulated and your calorie consumption is significantly increased so fatty lipids are released from adipocytes: your fat is converted into energy.

2. Energy level

Most diets fail due to low energy after a few days of low calories. You feel so tired that even daily activities become hard, no chance for any extra exercising! Thanks to ephedrine your energy level will be enhanced for a sufficient period of time in order to start producing weight loss results, thus virtuous circle by effect on mood.

3. Appetite suppression

Let’s detail this point a bit because I like it so much. This is probably the key success factor of ephedrine as fat burner. It shows how complex our body is and I love the way we try to find tricks to fool him 😉 OK, usually after a few days of diets your body figures out what you are doing and the reaction is painful: your small fat cells are very efficient at restocking fat and ask for more, with immediate effect on your appetite: you feel so hungry that keeping your motivation for the cutting phase becomes harder. Here is how ephedrine will do the trick here: physiologically, dopamine plays a big role in the regulation of appetite, well ephedrine will help you as indirect dopamine agonist by increasing its release from the cytoplasmic pool (basically everything in the cell except the nucleus, where metabolic pathways occur). Bottom line: your fat cells are starving but ephedrine gave a signal saying that you are not hungry anymore, as if you had eaten enough. Your adipocytes can shout all day long, your brain is not listening anymore 😉

4. Lean Muscle Mass Retention

Lean Muscle Mass Retention is the final synergy between ephedra or ephedrine and fat burn. Have a look at our page gathering medical references: “During dietary energy restriction Ephedrine plus Caffeine promotes fat loss and preserves fat-free mass”). This is exactly what you want during a cutting phase! After all these efforts to build muscle, you now want to keep them and get rid of the fat that came during the bulking phase. The good point is also that by keeping your metabolic rate high and being able to exercise without serious fatigue, you will burn more calories at all times (the more muscle you have, the more calorie you burn, even at rest).


The end goal of a cutting phase for bodybuilders is to show their chiseled cut muscles. Again, many people reading our blog and you also maybe are not exactly bodybuilders 😉 but these nutrition tips and the support of ephedrine will have the same results for you. We just might see less chiseled cut muscles 😉 but you will lose fat in the same way, for the same reasons.

Make sure to find ephedrine for sale from our recommended sites only, don’t buy fake products from fake sites: it’s impressing how many spam sites are now “selling” ephedrine without prescription for a delivery in the USA! To be fair, it’s true that no prescription is needed, as no ephedrine will be delivered, in the USA or in any other country 😉 They will just debit your credit card 🙁

OK, that’s it for now, the next post will detail an exercising program which will consolidate your dieting results without compromising your muscle mass.

Ephedrine for Weight Loss, Take Example from Bodybuilders

Bodybuilding and ephedrine on Ephedrinewheretobuy.comIf you know us since a while, you may have seen that we refer frequently to Bodybuilding when it comes to weight loss: it’s true and it’s for good reasons. In fact it is very useful to take example directly from the best in class if you want to achieve your goals!
We try to have a global view on weight loss issues and thanks to the complementary views of our team members, mainly doctors, we have the possibility to vary angles in our analysis: we usually start with a medical or biological point of view, then somebody reminds us of the importance of all psychological aspects, then our physical coach insists to have a word on the benefits of exercising, most of the time our dietitian will not leave the room if we don’t include some nutritional aspects, while the wiser guy (me) has a final word on social, economical or environmental aspects.
In a nutshell : it’s great to be a team 🙂 Learning and teaching, giving and receiving… Here is an example of the 360° view about the Love Story between Bodybuilding and Ephedrine.


Bodybuilders' Psychology on Ephedrinewheretobuy.comBodybuilders have the right mindset, they have a clear motivation, goal setting is working fine, no problem with volition, they work hard, they have a good self-image and self-confidence, they know how to plan their efforts over months and measure the results. In two words, they have it all right.


Ephedrine's effect on neurotransmittersFrom the exchanges we have with bodybuilders we can see that they have a good basic knowledge on biological/physiological aspects, more than enough to be put into practice. When you know how to drive your car, you don’t need necessarily to understand how the engine works. When bodybuilders know how to burn fat, they don’t need to know all involved physiological processes. They know enough about metabolism, thermogenesis, fat structure, lypolisis and all effects of ephedrine, at least enough to make it work for them.



Synergy between EC stack and DietBodybuilders know a lot about nutrition, you would be amazed by all their knowledge about dieting, meal frequency and composition, percentages of carbohydrates, proteins and fat: if you hear a bodybuilder saying that his doing well with his 40/40/20, you should ask him in return if he is satisfied with his cutting phase and how did it go during bulking by the way 😉 Not a surprise, bodybuilders work so hard for their body, lifting weights most days of the week, they know the high price that would be jeopardized by a few nutritional mistakes, so they do the right thing. Some of them even follow strict dietary plans (intakes measured in grams) almost religiously. And they also have great information regarding supplements, they know exactly what is good for them and they go for it in the correct way: they take no risk by experts’ advice. In a nutshell: bodybuilders have a nutritional knowledge that you usually don’t find at that level in other sports, or maybe at professional level, they have the right basics and even more.


Beautiful Bodybuilder on Ephedrinewheretobuy.comDo you know another sport where physical activities are so organized and where people stick to their exercising sets and repetitions so strictly? We don’t have much to say, they do it all right. They have the good knowledge regarding anabolism and catabolism, cardio training, aerobic and anaerobic phases, they all know and practice High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) in their cutting phases, all good. Maybe one remark only: female bodybuilders are doing much to much cardio training and are a bit afraid of heavy weight lifting which is a common mistake.


Bodybuilding Socializing on Ephedrinewheretobuy.comBodybuilders socialize a lot, they attend clubs, they help each other, they have a strong personality but  they accept coaching and they are not ashamed to ask for support from more experienced people, they have mates not only in the gym and also in forums, they are very active online, they browse the web for reliable information about what can help them. In the real life, don’t worry for them: the good part of bodybuilding is that you build yourself a beautiful body, no worry for them, they don’t feel alone on Saturday night 😉
A very interesting point has been the progressive entry of women in bodybuilding and ladies manage to be fit, strong and yet to stay feminine, we will develop this point later.


You can see that bodybuilders are a very good example for people who want to lose weight. We have many contacts with bodybuilders, acquaintances and friends, before or after we launched our website, because they use ephedrine for weight loss since a long time without side effects: they have no heart condition, they respect the recommended dosage and cycling of EC stacks (Ephedrine plus Caffeine). They know the benefits they can draw from ephedra: higher metabolism through thermogenesis, reduction of appetite, higher athletic level so that they avoid intense fatigue during gym sessions. We help them on our site with our up-to-date review of the best sites having ephedrine HCL for sale, we check the financial status to avoid bad surprises after ordering, we give them recommendations about products when they are not sure if it is real ephedra alkaloids or fake products, and we finally we keep them informed when sellers have time-limited sales. They know how to lose weight, we know where they can buy ephedrine without risks.
Quick hint if you are not (yet?) a bodybuilder: search for “bodybuilding forums” in Google and read a few posts, it might give you some ideas that could change many things.
