You guys have to understand that generally speaking, the first exposure to ANY anabolic stimulus (even weight training itself) will elicit the best response. Jon for example, mentioned that he gained 8 pounds in 3 weeks, which is very good result. Chris seems to have had similiar success. But obviously a person could not gain that amount every cycle otherwise he would be the biggest bodybuilder on the planet within a year. It is the law of diminishing returns. Each cycle of anything WILL yield progressively less results each time, sometimes despite ever increasing dosages. I believe that this is the culprit rather than the earlier batches being more potent in some way.
BTW, I just started M-7 a week ago, and I’m almost literally addicted to the taste too! One day, I actually had a Methoxy binge?! I took 8 tablespoons! The weird thing is, and this is not scientifically documented, but I had a rush of energy and greatly increased libido. Weird, especially in light of the fact that it is purported to have no impact on the endocrine system. Perhaps it actually is an anti-aromatase, and as a result I had more free-T available. Or maybe it significantly suppressed my chronically high cortisol levels (due to stressful work). Quite expensive at that dosage though.
Mr. Berardi, I hope it does'nt seem like I'm nitpicking, but if your absolute bodyweight has increased but bodyfat% is unchanged, then perhaps some of the weight is not LBM. Maybe I am missing something though. Don't get me wrong, you have very low bodyfat. I would love to experience such substantial LBM gains, whether it be 12 or 15 pounds.
As a side note, I think it is amazing how variable the effects of supplements are in different individuals. I mean some gain with Tribex but not Androsol, vice versa, some gain LBM with M-7 while others lose bodyfat (even when not dieting), and a few lucky guys even seem to both gain LBM and lose bodyfat!
