After new year i gave up smoking and started drinking cocoa.
I was researching natural ways to increase follistatin and therefore muscle growth. Cocoa increases nitric oxide which in turns increases follistatin levels.
So i have been using pure cocoa in shakes about 125 grams a day:
I have gained 11lbs in two weeks.
I have amazing increase in energy, especially for cardio.
My pumps have been extreme and painful, my biceps when pumped felt like they were going to rip out of the skin.
Next week i am going to try and up the dose and see if gains continue to come.
Sidenote: I do realize also that much of the weight gain may have been due to giving up smoking.
