Well, I've done some searching, and really didn't turn up too much, so I figured I would toss this out there and see if anyone had and experience/advice or really just general thoughts on the subject.
Over the years, as we all....(I'm 41 now), had REALLY put on MUCH too much weight, really let myself go. I'm 6'0 tall, and just a general/average build, and I somehow over the years let myself get to about 262 lbs.
Well, that said (This was about 9 mo. ago). At the time, I was looking for the "Magic Bullet" as I thought I would never be able to lose the weight, and began looking at some of the options.
Well, I didn't do anything, and just began no specific diet, but ONLY "Portion Control", I would get a burger, and cut it in half...basically for everything.
BUT, I didn't cut anything out of my diet, only calories...however they came.
WELL.....Over these past 9 months, I'm now down to about 190 lbs. (I grad H.S. at 185), but my best weight was when I was running some 1/2 triathlons, I was 170, but that was too "Skinny" w/o much GOOD Muscle tone.
OK....MY ISSUE NOW: I know a lot of it is age, etc....BUT, even after losing this 70 lbs, I have a slight "Ponch" on my belly, and a small amount of "Padding" on my ribs, etc.....
Well, I began a workout routine, lifting weights (More for "Tone").
That said, This probably 20 lbs or so of fat is "STICKY", and it appears to be going nowhere.
MY QUESTION IS: I have done A LOT of reading about the use of T3 Cytomel, and Clenbuteral. NOW.....I have read a TON about the "Dangers" of longer term/extended use, and the potential for shut-down of your Thyroid, leaving you on Thyroid care for life.....BUT, read many many studies of people using this for 4 week cycles or so, then taking off for at least that long, etc.
From EVERYTHING I read, this T3 really is as close as you can get to the "Magic Bullet", I"m sure many will say it's not worth the risk, etc....BUT, I was/am hoping to get some feedback from anyone experienced.
I did/do understand that the T3 is not "Picky" and can eat the calories where ever it can get them, meaning, you can lose Muscle weight just as easy, therefore, EVERY method I've read about it's use, indicates that some sort of Anabolic must be used with it to "Protect" your muscle, and all the T3 to Rip that fat right off.
OF COURSE...I realize that it's probably at least 75%++ Diet, and you have to work hard while on it and not sit around hoping it just disappears overnight.
I'm at the point, that I'm fairly convinced that a short cycle of this..(The T3 Cytomel and/or Clen) is something I want to do, BUT, I am definitely the type that needs to know the ins/outs/ups/downs of it before I would even try.
SO, ALL THAT SAID...(Sorry, just felt the background was important), Any advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I have fairly well educated myself, so any questions I'm sure I can at least take a stab at....But, I would love to hear from some people that have tried this and how their results went.
Just to repeat, I DID NOT use it to go from fat doing nothing to now. I lost all that weight with nothing. I am now just trying to get this darn "Sticky" fat off of me, and that's why I believe it wouldn't take much, but a couple short (4-6 week) cycles to really get myself to my ultimate goals (lol...goal being, not be 41...lol, but rather 25 again..lol), of course impossible, but I think I have no reason to doubt it's possible w/ some work, and a very powerful supplement like this....
Anyway....THOUGHTS? EXPERIENCES??? ETC.....
All the best......S
