20mg ephedrine, 200mg caffeine, 325mg aspirin seems to be the normal dose that people have recommended in all the posts I have seen using the search facility.
however there are so many different opinions and I guess everyone is different to what they can take, but its left me confused about whats safe for me to take.
I have some: Kaizen Nutrition, Ephedrine HCL, 8 mg Ephedrine (Hydrochloride) per tab.
so am I right in thinking that 3 tabs will be getting 24mg ephedrine will be right? seems a lot, or is 8mg per tab weak?
the instructions that came with the E are:
“1 tab every 6-8 hours. Avoid taking ephedrine tabs 4-5 hours before bed. Do not exceed 4 ephedrine tabs in a 24 hour. 3 times a day”
so I translate that as 1 tab, 3 times a day. taking 3 at once seems a lot?
whats the deal?
ive never taken them before, if its not already obv.
I am 252lbs and 16% bf.
if this makes any difference.
You’re at 16% bf, diet and exercise will get you a LONG WAY. Don’t use the fat burners yet, pretty pointless at this point of your cut. When you come closer to 10% or so when the caloric deficit starts taking it’s toll and your metabolism starts slowing down, THAT’S when you should add in the fat burners. To keep the fat burning going.
Every 5 lbs + or -, recalculate your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure, aka, what your calories are for maintenance and thus eat 300-500 calories below that, depending on how quickly you wish to cut, the slower the cut the more gains you keep whilst losing fat).
As for EC dosing, skip the aspirin, not really worth it and for it to be effective, the doses are questionable. Ephedrine HCL should be dosed @ 20-24 mg’s with 200 mg’s of caffeine. When first starting out, use half the ephedrine dose with 200 mg’s of caffeine to assess tolerance and BP + HR. Take one hour away from meal (before or after meals). Depending on how early your first dose is, a 3rd daily dose could be used (obviously if the 3rd dose is going to be pretty late in the day, don’t use the 3rd dose or else it would be a terrible aggravation trying to fall asleep).
