No Ephedrine but a Smart Diet to Boost Fat Burn

I told you in my last post that I was a bit disappointed to see that my weight didn’t change after all these efforts to run fast, at least twice a week, and without taking ephedrine! So I decided to start a smart diet to boost my fat burn, hopefully in the midsection… OK, but what kind of diet?

Choosing a Diet with the Pros

I have the chance to have diet specialists around me so I use it πŸ˜‰

Running Fast with a Smart DietI had a long discussion with my two preferred experts, my wife first, and our friend Laurence who is endocrinologist. I told them about the fact that running more didn’t have any effect on losing fat and that I wanted to go to the next level. Their answer surprised me: according to them, a diet was not really necessary, it was just a question of time, I had to be patient! They told me also that reducing my number of calories during this demanding period would only lower my metabolism, my energy level and it would make things so hard that I would be at risk of injury when running or losing motivation in the best case.

Do What You Want!

So here is what I decided: do what you want, don’t listen to the experts πŸ˜‰
I know it’s stupid but I can’t help it: I had decided to go on a smart diet and instead of recommending something helpful they just ask me to change my mind! No way πŸ˜‰

To be hoEat Less for Weight Loss and Know Your Caloriesnest I was a bit afraid of this slow metabolism thing and I knew I wouldn’t have the support of ephedrine during that period, I know from experience how hard it can be to go running when your energy level is just enough to move you from bed, to bathroom, to kitchen πŸ™‚

So here is what I decided to change:

  • No calorie counting in the beginning, I will see later
  • No hunger, so ok to increase my meal size between running days
  • Focus on good healthy foods
  • A few strict rules, no cheating
  • No more bread during lunch
  • No more refined sugar, for example in coffee
  • No more sauces/dressings because most are industrial and full of bad calories
  • No more alcohol except during the weekend – this one hurts πŸ™

Conclusion

I have started this “smart” diet two weeks ago so it’s not enough to have solid results yet, I will give you a feedback later on. My impressions so far is that it’s much harder than I thought. Changing your habits (eating habits or any others) is definitely a challenge.

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com Recommends Green StingerI really miss ephedrine πŸ™

Considering the health benefits, I will keep on running, even if it’s hard. Hopefully I will see more progress in the coming months.

There is also something I have in mind since Japan but don’t know how to “implement” it: I know that sitting for long periods of time is very bad for your health – we have medical evidence about it, see this study for instance [1]. Now with my activity tracker I clearly see I don’t walk enough during the week, sitting at a desk for hours. I would like to sit less and to increase my energy expenditure all week long, and not only when running. What scared me was this article from Mayo Clinic:

Any extended sitting β€” such as behind a desk at work or behind the wheel β€” can be harmful. What’s more, spending a few hours a week at the gym or otherwise engaged in moderate or vigorous activity doesn’t seem to significantly offset the risk.”

So this is definitely to be explored: how to sit less and move more outside of proper exercises (running). This would result in progressive efforts, so probably regular results also, all week long and not only during running days, I have to figure that out.

It was like a revelation for me: thanks to the activity tracker built in my running watch, I realized by facts that my “number of steps per day” was quite low, far from the official recommendations [2].

I really love my running watch πŸ™‚ I say it in each post now because I’d like to convince you: activity trackers are awesome, they really are a game changer if you are serious about your weight and health. My wife has bought one πŸ™‚

Last thoughts

Considering all the efforts and the lack of results, I see two possible ways in the coming months:

1) I could reduce my calorie intake while keeping the same energy expenditure – making this experience even harder!

2) Or I may finally introduce ephedrine or ephedra again to have more energy, less appetite, a higher metabolism and much quicker fat burn. The only point is that it is not compatible with HIIT sessions…

We will see.. In all cases, I will keep you informed πŸ™‚

  • <5000 steps/day may be used as a ‘sedentary lifestyle index’;
  • 5000-7499 steps/day is typical of daily activity excluding sports/exercise and might be considered ‘low active’;
  • 7500-9999 likely includes some volitional activities (and/or elevated occupational activity demands) and might be considered ‘somewhat active’;
  • >or=10000 steps/day indicates the point that should be used to classify individuals as ‘active’.
  • Individuals who take >12500 steps/day are likely to be classified as ‘highly active’.

Running Fast, My Weight Loss Results

I decided some months ago to lose weight the hard way, by running fast and without ephedrine.Β  Now it’s time to give you a feedback.

Running Plan: Faster, Harder

Losing weight by running fasterI don’t know where to start…
OK, let’s see the running plan first. Each running session is approximately 1 hour at moderate pace when the goal is cardio training, and 45 to 50 minutes when we train in the so-called “threshold” zone to increase our speed. Yes, we are running even faster now… This is due to two new colleagues, young, trained and running really fast, who push us to raise the bar and honestly I am reaching my limits πŸ™

Our running route is always the same so it’s getting a bit boring but on the other hand it’s good the have the same reference each time (to see immediately how we performed on this session) and also it’s good to exercise outdoors instead of running on a treadmill.

Quick Impressions

Of course I stopped the running sessions when I was on vacation with my family in Japan and South Korea and I started again the first week back in the office.

Running fast without ephedrineLesson learned: when you start again, you have the feeling to start from zero… It has been as hard as the first time, months ago. I don’t know why but it seems that your body doesn’t remember all the efforts you’ve done before and you have the feeling you’ve lost all the benefits πŸ™ Plus the fact that we are running faster! These young guys will kill me πŸ˜‰ I know it’s a stupid ego thing but I can’t help it, I have to show them that I can do it. And my secret dream would be to beat them! To wait for them after the finish line, me relaxed and them exhausted, I would ask them “Is it ok? Should I reduce the pace and wait for you next time?” Hmm, stupid but so good πŸ˜‰

OK, seriously now. The good news is that you “recover” quickly: after a few running sessions only you reach again the level you had before the break. I had the same body/muscle aches as in the beginning, but only during the first two sessions, then it went fine. So my recommendation: either don’t stop running during your vacation πŸ˜‰ or if you have a break (something like one month), don’t be surprised or discouraged when starting again, don’t let down, just stick to your running plan and it will be fine after a few sessions.

Weight Loss Results: Mixed Feelings

To be honest my bathroom scale didn’t show much difference until now πŸ™
I have probably increased my muscle mass (legs) but frankly I have no impression of fat loss. Especially in the midsection… I know from experience that you can’t target a specific body part for weight loss: when you really burn fat, you lose it throughout your entire body. I’m not really disappointed but still. All these efforts and this stupid scale can’t see it?

OK, let’s be positive now.

  • I know that increasing my muscle mass is the good direction for future weight loss: it will increase my metabolism and I will burn more throughout the day, with or without exercise.
  • Another positive aspect is that I got several feedback from people around who saw a difference πŸ™‚ Probably from the face, because I essentially got feedback from colleagues who don’t see much of my body except the face πŸ˜‰ I have kept the same clothes so I guess the global appearance didn’t change, it has to be a slimmer face, maybe less roundness from the cheeks and jawline?

Next Step: HIIT

HIIT instead of cardio to burn fatOur next step in this running plan is to introduce some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). The rest of the running team wants to increase speed as a primary goal, well, for me it is fat burn! I know all the weight loss benefits that come with HIIT so I agreed with the plan, even if I didn’t tell them about my true motivation! Regarding speed, it’s always good for the ego to know that your stats have improved but I have no special ambition to win races so I don’t care πŸ˜‰

What I appreciate with the coming HIIT sessions is that it will boost my fat loss results with less time running: I already experienced it successfully years ago, your metabolism gets a serious boost not only during the running session but 24 hours after, you still burn fat at high rate. The last good point is that it’s the right moment to do it, as I don’t take ephedrine currently: no ephedra, no EC stack, nothing πŸ™ Believe me, the temptation is high… I resist because I want to go to the end of this experience (first time for me) to see if I can get the same results as I got years ago with ephedrine and running at (very) low pace. The good point of doing it without ephedra is that it allows me to take part to the coming HIIT sessions. Knowing the risk of side effects when you combine ephedrine and HIIT I would never take such risk and that would mean running at my own pace, far behind the rest of our team, it would be hard to explain…

Conclusion So Far

No change at this point, losing weight that way is really hard. If you compare it to the fat burn you get with ephedra and cardio, it’s a no-brainer. Wait and see…

That’s it for the moment! Next time I will tell you about my new plan regarding diet: I really want to boost this fat burn and the quickest way is to combine a smart diet to these exhausting running sessions.

And I also have to do a special post on my running watch because I love it πŸ™‚

Keep in touch,
Mike Budd

Ephedrine Figures Don’t Lie, But Liars Do Figure

I am so happy I found it finally!

Cops and ephedrine, opinion versus facts
For years I have been saying that prescription laws for ephedrine and pseudoephedrine were not a solution to the meth scourge, based on what I call “intuition and a sharp mind” and what my wife calls “common sense with a bit of arrogance” πŸ™‚

I have many reasons to be opposed to the classification of pseudoephedrine as prescription only, as explained in my last post, but in short here are the main ones:

  1. The most important point for me is that such laws would be ineffective and unfair:
    Do you really believe that laws can stop drugs? Seriously? It is quite funny to think that people who already break the law by selling or buying illicit substances would suddenly stop because of a new law…
  2. Of course I understand that local cops would like to get rid of the dirty part of their job, cleaning up meth labs, but in that case why don’t they just support meth-proof pseudoephedrine? You can be sure of one thing on this planet: if there is market and money to be made, there will be somebody somewhere willing to sell to these people. So be sure that drug addicts will get their stuff anyway, probably from Mexico. The good news for local cops is that less meth will be cooked in the country and thus it will lower the risk for them.
  3. I have been discussing this matter with so many people, healthcare providers, journalists, patients, it’s amazing how unpopular this prescription law would be. People are not stupid.

So to come back to the point, why am I so happy? Because I had the feeling since years that we were lacking figures in that raging debate. Did you notice that opponents and proponents were usually trying to convince people by using high emotional triggers such as family, kids, home, life, sometimes even religious arguments?

I Prefer Facts and Figures

It’s finally the case today: a team of independent, distinguished and reputable professors of economics have conducted a study in Indiana about the costs and benefits of classifying OTC cold medications based on pseudoephedrine as prescription drugs only. Here is a link to this study published byΒ Michael Hicks and his colleagues.
By the way, Michael Hicks is the George and Frances Ball distinguished professor of economics and the director of the Center for Business and Economic Research at Ball State University. I guess nobody, even cops, will question his expertise πŸ™‚

What Are The Major Points?

1) Prescription laws don’t solve the meth problem. Studies of the experience of Oregon where pseudoephedrine became Rx in 2006 and Mississippi (Rx law in 2010) both have very clear results: “These laws had no impact on meth use in either state”.

2) The annual cost of such law in Indiana would be more than $90 million, mainly supported by law abiding citizen and businesses — quite expensive for a law that proved to be totally ineffective!

Conclusion

Knowing the figures, who would still argue that Rx prescription laws are a good idea and should be voted? Probably the same people not very happy to see these figures finally made public πŸ˜‰
It’s hard to convince millions of people that they will lose millions of dollars because of a stupid law that solves nothing. Local cops will probably argue back, saying that these figures are not reliable and they will accentuate their lobbying πŸ™‚
And you know what? Many politicians don’t care about figures, as they don’t really care about your health and the financial burden they put on you. As long as they keep their job! And the best way for that is typically to hide evidence (based on hard facts and figures) and to manipulate people (through emotions and values).

OK, I recognize that I am generalizing here, all politicians are not like that. But to be fair, and with all respect to our politicians, I prefer Michael Hicks’ figures to any persuasive speech. Because figures don’t lie.

Bragging Rights, Part 2

Thank you!

I told you in Bragging Rights Part 1 how proud I was to have such nice and expert people who like our website. The emails exchanged with Derek are for me a good example of this kind of surprise that rewards you for hours of work, discussions, emails, article writing, giving our best recommendation to people who trust us.

So what is it about this time? Why Bragging Rights Part II?

Because we had the pleasure to discover that people read our pages from all around the world: believe it or not, we have readers in 102 countries!

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com has readers in 102 countries!To be honest when I heard it I thought I misunderstood. Is it sure? How come that we know about the country of our readers, and what about other personal information? So I asked for details and I was told that when a person does a search online and visits our site from there, his or her country is added to the list but no other personal information is available fortunately, only the country based on a so-called “IP address”.
That being clarified, then I really took the measure: 102 countries! Wow πŸ™‚
For some of them I only heard or read the name a few times in my life! In many cases I wouldn’t be able to locate them on a globe πŸ˜‰

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com has readers who speak EnglishBy the way, how do all these people understand our pages in English? I know that it is the international language mainly used online but still… In fact I got the explanation: in many cases our readers use the automatic translation provided by Google, you know, the famous Google Translate. Honestly I always heard that these automatic translation tools were a bit lame, giving funny results in the best case, so of course within the team we jumped to our laptops to have a look and feel and then we stopped, feeling a bit stupid: how can we test this translation to make fun of it if we are not able to understand the result in other languages? Aha… OK, who has language skills in the team? A second or third language, and fluent enough to tell if the translation is correct or not? We decided that finally, compared to our language skills, any translation tool in so many languages is not so lame πŸ˜‰ The good point is that it allows people in 102 countries to read our posts about ephedrine.

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com has readers in EuropeI couldn’t tell how happy I was, thinking of thousands of people around the world being interested by ephedrine, its legality and its effects for weight loss. It is the revenge of Nature who produces the best fat burner ever, banned for controversial reasons by the FDA πŸ™‚ in fact just controlled, because you can still buy ephedrine in all states in the USA and other countries but under various rules (ID, max quantity per month or eventually prescription).

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com has readers in South AmericaI know it may sound like auto-satisfaction but it’s good to brag from time to time, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰
Well, all team members and myself are really happy and proud to give you our honest information and to see that this effort is worth it, that many people have a better knowledge and understanding about the risks and benefits of ephedrine and that they make informed decisions based on our articles — including our selection of trustworthy sites where to buy ephedrine or ephedra pills.

If we could ask you something in return: please do not hesitate to give us your thoughts or questions in the comment section below our posts! In fact we receive many emails compared to the number of comments and the main explanation is that people prefer a direct contact, others don’t want to discuss about ephedrine in public — even if it is totally legal, many emails are about losing weight so these persons don’t want to give personal details online. In all cases we fully understand πŸ™‚ nevertheless many exchanges could be useful to all readers and only your first name is required so it’s not like sharing private information with the world πŸ˜‰ Sometimes it’s a bit hard for us to reply within 2 days because we have our full time jobs and family life, especially with teens πŸ˜‰ We do our best to reply to each and every email but it would be cool to share your questions and experiences with all.

We would be also very thankful if you could support us by sharing or liking our pages in Facebook or Google Plus, or by tweeting them: you would do us a great favor by clicking the nice icons placed at the bottom of each post πŸ™‚ When you do it, our site is kind of recommended by you to the search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo, it tells them that you like our site and that we give a reliable information about ephedrine.

Readers' country number 102 for EphedrineWhereToBuy.com is ZambiaPlease do it πŸ™‚ We would be happy to add new countries to the current 102 πŸ˜‰

 

and to learn in Google Maps where in the world they are!

Take care,
Mike Budd for the Team

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 vsΒ Low Intensity Steady State vsΒ 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 πŸ™‚

Bulking and Cutting Cycles

Let’s start with a typical newbie question πŸ˜‰ 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,Β 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 Β«Clean BulkingΒ» 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

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 bodyΒ 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?

Keep in touch,
Mike Budd

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 πŸ˜‰Β  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.

Proteins

  • 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!

Carbohydrates

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 πŸ˜‰
  • 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 πŸ˜‰

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.

Fats

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

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com 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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰

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: β€œDuring 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).

Conclusion

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 πŸ˜‰ but these nutrition tips and the support of ephedrine will have the same results for you. We just might see less chiseled cut muscles πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰ They will just debit your credit card πŸ™

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.

Biggest Coupon Ever At NutraCave

Kids are back to school and many of us are totally running out of time these days…
Every day is a challenge: look at these to-do lists! Not sure what takes me more time, writing them or doing the tasks πŸ˜‰Β  Between my daily job and my second boss at home, I have to steal time from sleep if I want to keep in touch online πŸ™‚

For these reasons I will keep it short today for this first post after a great summer break. Here are the main points:

  • As soon as I get up to speed, I will post a nice picture of my holidays and if you can guess where it is, you will get something cool by email πŸ™‚
  • Prescription for ephedrine has been intensively debated lately in some states, in the coming weeks I will give you a quick update to know in which states it is still legal to buy ephedrine and pseudoephedrine.
  • Some news also about these two promising meth-proof products: Zephrex-D and Nexafed.
  • And the most interesting point for you: the Biggest Coupon Ever At NutraCave!

NutraCave's biggest coupon ever: up to 80% off

Even if NutraCave isn’t selling ephedrine HCL anymore, it’s really worth considering it: you get 30% off regular prices which is already cool, but the great deal is for products that are already on sale: you can save up to 80% off retail prices!

This coupon code is valid for 3 days and is meant for subscribers to NutraCave’s newsletter only so you might have to give your email address before ordering to be sure.
Then use coupon code BOOM30 at checkout.

This is a good opportunity to test their stack that we have mentioned a few times already: Dendrobium, Synephrine HCL and Caffeine.

Dendrobium

We had more and more feedback about this supposed alternative to ephedrine and no surprise: it worked ok for most guys but far from the weight loss results that you get with ephedrine HCL or ephedra alkaloids.

To be fair, the good points reported so far is that Dendrobium might lower blood pressure, enhance mood, increase your metabolism and even reduce pain. Caution though: these effects are mainly reported by bodybuilders who use Dendrobium as a pre-workout supplement (Driven Sports Craze anybody?) and some of you here are not exactly bodybuilders πŸ˜‰ My concern is that we have no medical study of these effects in humans – at least to my knowledge. I did a quick review of the medical literature and we have tens of medical studies about Dendrobium but no one in our field of interest.

To sum it up, there is a common belief that dendrobium has the a.m. positive effects, based on empirical observations. Some say that dendrobium might be the next hot supplement, we say that we don’t have medical evidence about it, not even speaking of potential side effects that it might cause. As usual, try it if you want, but at your own risk.

Synephrine HCL

Now a quick word about the second component of this stack, Synephrine HCL: the good points are that NutraCave is selling the pharmaceutical grade at a reasonable dosage: 30mg. It should have the desired lipolytic effects that you expect πŸ™‚ Other reassuring point: the medical literature about synephrine – especially about its thermogenic effects – is plethoric and no adverse events have been reported at the proposed dosage.
Synephrine belongs to the amazing alkaloid family and you find it in its natural form mainly in citrus fruits.

Caffeine

Last word about the third component, caffeine: in all modesty we have written great posts about coffee and caffeine πŸ˜‰ if you need a refresher have a look here and there.

Conclusion

Happy BOOM30 to all πŸ˜‰
Be nice and leave us a short feedback about your experience and weight loss results if you try this Dendrobium plus Synephrine stack. And if you prefer to stick to our preferred fat burner, you know where to buy ephedrine and ephedra alkaloids.

You Say You Can’t Run?

You know what? Our page about Eat Less, the first Pillar of Weight Loss had quite a nice success πŸ™‚ Thanks for that! I don’t remember on which website I always see this sentence: “It’s good to feel love!”. Well, it’s the way I feel today πŸ™‚

Regarding Move More, The Second Pillar of Weight Loss, this new page is taking the same direction: we have already received many feedbacks and questions that we will try to answer here. But before that, congratulations to all of you who have achieved to eat less and who have already started exercising!

You remember that we did three exercising programs for three groups, based on your previous exercising and your current physical activity.
Today we would like to reply to people from Group 1 and 2 who say that they can’t run.

Why can’t you run?
Apparently you have many reasons to stay at home:

  • You are too fat
  • You are too old
  • Your knee hurts, your foot hurts, your ankle hurts, your shin hurts, your hip hurts, your back hurts, what else?
  • Bodybuilders don’t run
  • It’s bad for your joints
  • It’s just too hard.

To be fair it’s not the first time that people tell me that they can’t run or that running is bad for them, if I had a dollar for every time I heard it, well… I’d be rich now but I would still be doing the same thing, writing this post πŸ™‚

This topic is frequently launched and commented in running forums — yes, there are forums about running πŸ™‚ some guys are so happy running that they need to talk about it in specialized forums to other guys like them πŸ˜‰ Of course you have many threads about “I can’t run” and hundreds of replies from members who remember what they used to reply to this question. Some of these replies were very funny, some made me laugh to tears, I have kept two of them:

  • My dad always says that runners look so haggard. If by “haggard,” he means “super hot,” I totally get it.
  • My mother in law told me it would make my uterus fall out. I told her I was done having kids so I didn’t need it anymore anyway.

πŸ™‚

OK, seriously now.

You say you can’t run? I don’t believe you. You can’t run or you don’t want to?
Let me answer point by point.

You are too fat to run

Never too fat to runI don’t buy this one. It’s precisely because you are fat that you should run. Running is like walking, except quicker.
You can walk can’t you? So you can run too. There are no morphological reasons why you would not run. I don’t mean running a marathon in the first month, but starting with walking and running intervals can be done at any weight, whatever your Body Mass Index.

You are too old to run

Never too old to runCome on πŸ˜‰ You are never too old to run if your body accepts it. Check with your doctor and you will know. I have so many seniors around me who started running in their 50’s and who are performing very well now (it’s amazing the endurance at this age). Too old to run, really? Tell that to Fauja Singh, who is at 101 the world’s oldest marathon runner!

Bodybuilders Don’t Run

Bodybuilders don't runI heard it so many times: most bodybuilders run when someone says the word cardio! πŸ˜‰Β  I will not develop here because a detailed post will come soon: anabolic versus catabolic training, bodybuilders who avoid cardio because they fear they would end up looking like skinny long distance runners πŸ˜‰ It makes no sense to build a global rule out of an exception. Life is balance, you need strength but endurance also, you should definitely include some cardio training with running sessions.

Joints, The Typical Fake Excuse

Joints hurt, the typical fake excuse not to runIf you are overweight, of course pounding out the pavement will be demanding for your hips and knees! Make sure to buy real running shoes, not Converse All Stars
For instance cushioning shoes will provide a high level of shock attenuation if you are running on the pavement more than on grass or off-road in general. The way your foot hit the road tells if you are pronator, over-pronator or supinator. Most people are pronators, probably your case too. With cushioning shoes your body’s connective tissue will absorb the shock, without cushioning your bones and joints will take the brunt of the shock. I can’t stand seeing people (overweight or not) running without appropriate shoes. Sometimes I can’t resist, I stop and tell them: for God’s sake, buy *real* running shoes!!

Running is too hard

Running is just too hard when you are overweightIf the real reason you won’t run is more in your head than in your body, you have a mental block on running and you think it’s too hard. I can’t run, it’s just not possible, it’s too hard, boohoo πŸ™ Running is hard, sure, but only at the beginning! If you are strong enough to start and then to resist for a few weeks, believe me, there is no better way for losing weight and getting fit than running. Running burns more calories than almost every other exercise, it’s worth the effort. Did you try our first program with walking and jogging intervals? Really? If not, how do you know you can’t run until you try? Was it to hard? Did you have cushioning shoes? If not, try again. Did you respect all rest and recovery days between sessions? It’s not easy but it’s feasible for anyone: start by walking and after a while, running, and so on. I remember I could not run for 5 minutes straight the first time I tried, having so many extra pounds after all these years of excess (junk food, alcohol, no physical activity). So I took the advice of experts around me, including my brother in law, and after a few weeks I was able to run for short distances, progressively for 10 minutes, then 15, then 20 and so on until 30, 45, 1 hour! and more. I did it, thousands of people did it, you can do it. It’s in your head.

Running Causes Pain and Injury

Running causes pain and injuryI prefer to address this issue immediately: yes it’s true, depending on your overweight you might have small inconveniences like problems with your knees or hips. First, refer to my previous words regarding cushioning shoes. If you have real running shoes and still issues, they have to be considered of course. It has been the case for me also in the beginning: I had an inflammation behind the knee and one at the hip and both have been treated by a doctor with a few anti-inflammatory injections.
Don’t worry too much, these things happen: running comes with the stress of little or medium shocks, your body breaks down your muscles during training and rebuilds them after training, that’s why rest days are important. It might happen that you have some aches and pains in the beginning, don’t worry, slow down, take more rest, get it treated by a doctor, after a few weeks you’ll be definitely over it and you will be on the right track for your new body πŸ™‚ Be strong.

Conclusion

Except buying ephedrine for its famous fat burning effects, I see no better chance for your weight loss program than running, again and again and again!
Why do you think I insist so much? Because I know.
Running is also a terrific stress reliever. You have no idea how much it could change your life, not only your body. From all people I have helped to get fit and healthy again, most of them don’t need to run anymore for weight management, because their lifestyle and food habits are fine, but they kept running for all the benefits. Ask any runner about the biggest risk with running: doing too much until you’ve injured yourself and you need to stop running for a while… Be honest, don’t hide behind fake excuses and just face the truth: you can run. You know that nothing compares to running when it come to lose weight.
You really want to lose weight. You should run. You will run.

Eat Less, My Own Experience

Good news for those of you who are still struggling with New Year’s weight loss resolutions: as planned in our previous post, Weight Loss Resolution, What You Will Get From Us, we have finally decided to reveal what we consider as the Basics and Fundamentals of our credo (Eat Less, Move More, Get Support), starting with Nutrition:

Eat Less, The First Pillar of Weight Loss

Not a list of tips as you can see. We are talking about our copyrighted method here, based on years of experience. It has worked for me when Ann helped me losing weight a long time ago and I am happy to say that I managed to keep it off during all these years by changing my food habits and lifestyle. It has also worked for many people around us, before and after we launched our website. If you stick to the plan, no doubt that that it will work for you also.

This information is so important for us that we have decided to publish it as a permanent page on our site, below the Weight Loss page. We didn’t want to publish it as a post that would be buried under new posts after a few weeks.

Here are the rules that will make you eat less:

1 – Understand That Eating Less Is Key
2 – Know What You Eat
3 – Count Each Calorie Going In
4 – Change Your Food Habits
5 – Avoid Cravings With Ephedrine

My own experience has been that point 1 seems easy to follow because you hear it but you have no special effort to do, you are not challenged so you think that you get it, but in fact no: you got an information but it had no influence on your decisions or actions. This point will be completed only when totally integrated in your mindset: I know that eating less represents 80 percent of my weight loss success, I really want to burn this fat and I can’t succeed without eating less so I will do it!

Point 2 has been easy for me: it’s a learning process where you have to weigh all foods in terms of calories. It can even be fun when done with your relatives and by the way it is a very good example to your kids if you are a parent. Don’t become obsessed though. The psychological effects of this learning curve have been huge for me: when I realized how many calories I was ingesting compared to healthy meals, I decided to stop it, the price was too high to pay. It doesn’t mean that I totally stopped these foods and drinks, especially alcohol, but when I was deciding to indulge despite the high number of calories, it was in full knowledge of the facts, for my own pleasure and not by habit.

Don’t tell me about point 3… I had so many difficulties to follow this third rule. I guess that it will be the same for you – or to be kind, I sincerely hope that it will be easier for you…
At this point, you will have the opportunity to test your willpower and your true motivation to lose weight. I had regular visits planned with Ann to show her my figures, and honestly I was feeling a bit ashamed of all I had been eating and drinking since the last visit… In order to show a better picture of myself I decided to forget some food and drinks I was having outside or at home πŸ™ But Ann is smart and experienced, she saw it immediately: we had a tough discussion where she told me that cheating with counting was only cheating myself, so I had to make a decision: either accept the rule and work with her to progress or stop! I made my mind and here I am now πŸ™‚

If you think that point 3 is tough, wait for point 4… I will come back to this with more details in future posts because I have a lot to tell. You know it: changing habits is so hard. I had many discussions with friends about the reasons of this difficulty, some with friends psychoanalysts, I will write a dedicated post about that. Goods news are that changes are possible if you avoid some mistakes and ask for support.

Finally the easiest point and the one that had the most influence on my weight loss success has been the last one, point 5: buy ephedrine. I remember each detail before making my decision, when and where I bought my first tabs of ephedrine after a doctor’s visit, making sure that I had no special risks (heart especially). When I look back I have no doubt that ephedrine has been the booster that made the difference between failure and success in my weight loss program. The appetite suppression has been impressive and helped me eating less, changing my habits and keeping the new ones long enough to be sure that I wouldn’t go back to the old ones.

I hope that many of you will start this program and I wish them a lot of success. For the motivated guys here who reach point 3 and log their calories for two weeks, I propose that you send me your figures by email so that I ask Ann to have a look at it and to give you the support she gave me in the beginning. We won’t be able to do it for all of you, but be sure that we will do our best.

Keep in touch for the next steps!

Mike Budd.

Weight Loss Resolution, What You Will Get From Us

Weight Loss Resolution at EphedrineWhereToBuy.comAs we told you in our post Weight Loss Resolution, Make it Work with Ephedrine, a lot of people have weight loss resolutions each year after the Festive Season and very few will keep them. Most of the time, the fat burning goals are totally forgotten in February and will come back at the end of the year: weight loss resolution or re-solution?

It doesn’t necessarily mean that 40% of Americans and Europeans who decide to get fit in the New Year are inconstant or that they don’t have enough willpower to succeed. To our point of view, many factors can explain the low rates of success: psychological, physiological, cultural, social, environmental factors are different parts of a complex puzzle and when combined together you see your own photo, fit or fat.

It’s the reason why writing this post has not been easy for us: we had a long discussion in the team because we didn’t know how to approach this weight loss resolution. As just said, there are so many influencing factors and so many individual considerations to be taken into account when trying to lose weight. No way to review all factors and to stick to a theoretical approach, it’s good to know but it doesn’t help in most cases: there are thousands of books that cover the topic but didn’t help readers to lose one single pound. How to be specific? How to be helpful, without being in touch individually as we did in the beginning of our website when we were supporting people through one to one relations?

After many discussions, here is what we decided and what you will get from us.

  • We stick to our credo. Losing weight is very easy in theory: eat less, move more and get support. The real challenge is to turn theory into practice, not only at start but in the long run, hence the high rates of failure.
  • We will give only a few recommendations for each of these three pillars of weight loss: nutrition, physical activity and personal support.
  • We will do that just as we do everything in life: in an honest and humble way, because we know what we are talking about, we know that it’s so hard for some people and so easy for others, we don’t judge, some of us in the team have experienced weight loss plans several times; personally, despite an “iron willpower”, I went through so many attempts that I have now a lot of understanding and empathy for people who try to lose weight. On the other hand, I am very suspicious towards people who come and tell you that they have a magical plan to get you fit and to shred 30 pounds within 2 months.
  • Finally it has worked for me, it has worked for many people around us before and after the creation of our website, it may also work for you. It depends on you.
  • OurΒ experience gives us a lot of confidence: when we will tell you about what we consider as Basics and Fundamentals in your weight loss plan, we mean it. Seriously. Weight loss compared to Chess at EphedrineWhereToBuy.comYou could think “hey I already know that, do you really think that hearing it again will help me to lose weight?”. First, you think what you want πŸ˜‰ We are here to help so if you come with a negative spirit, well, do us a favor, do yourself a favor: just leave this page and bye-bye πŸ˜‰Β  We don’t have enough free time aside from our jobs and families to waste it with negative people. If you are still reading this, it means that you are a positive person πŸ˜‰ thus we can try to clarify this point, “I already know that and it didn’t work…”. Here is how I try to explain it to friends: take the example of chess. There is in fact a very limited set of rules that you have to learn to play chess: pieces and movements. Very easy to learn, a child can do it, you just have to learn these rules and to follow them: a movement will be either authorized or forbidden. You can’t question that. Then with this limited set of rules you have an almost infinite number of possibilities: theory and practice will do the difference between success and failure, between a beginner and a Grandmaster. Well, the same applies to weight loss: there are some rules that you have to know and to follow. It may seem obvious for some of you, you already heard about it (eat less, move more and get support) but we will tell you in detail what we consider as being the basic rules in this weight loss game. In other words, you may have heard many things, too many things if fact, if you are still struggling to lose weight you have to ask yourself why all this information didn’t make you skinny…
  • We will give you some guidance (based on our experience) to do these subtle changes that make the difference between success and failure in your weight loss resolution. Applied to our chess example, it could be a hint when you have so many possible moves and you have to select the right one, not the poor decision that will ruin your position and all future chances.
  • For the persons who know us since a long time: these recommendations are not our “Road to Success” for weight loss. We will be available per email to answer some questions but we won’t do an individual support as we did previously, honestly it takes too much time so we won’t promise what we can’t deliver. Maybe for some persons only, if the team members and especially Ann, our dietician or Laurence, our endocrinologist, decide to do so.
  • That’s it: no promises but honest recommendations, hoping that it will help as many as possible of you πŸ™‚

Meanwhile take a few minutes to read our page about ephedrine and weight loss and our selection of sites that have pure ephedrine for sale.

Keep in touch for the next post about nutrition.
