If 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 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.
From 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.
Bodybuilders 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.
Do 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.
Bodybuilders 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.
