Before you guys look at this thread with a facepalm, I already did research.
I read this whole entire thread(and a few times too)
I know you guys will ask away so before I ask my question I will answer yours:
I am 23 years old. 25% body fat. 5’9 210lbs Been lifting since 16, and currently on a Test/Primo cycle.
I know diets better than anyone. I know that its the ONLY way to really loose fat, trust me I even have a diet coach. But here is my story: New Years eve of 2013(7 months ago) my girlfriend at the time broke up with me. This put me into a 6 month depression. During this depression I quit going to the gym(and killed sooo many gains) as well as get very fat.
I started eating any time I got depressed which was all the time. And I just did not eat the normal ice cream or donuts here and there…I pigged out so hard during those 6 months that I am shocked that I did not have heart failure from the amount of high cholesterol I must of had.
Here is an example of how I ate:
Go to taco bell, order 3 beef burritos, a Mexican pizza and 6 tacos. On the side I would order bread sticks(because the taco bell by my house is fused with a pizza hut) and an order of cream filled churos and a 32oz coke. I would eat ALL THAT no problem.
I started eating so much that after every meal it would hurt to move. I would even wake up in the middle of the night and drive to 7-11 and buy a pint of ice cream and kill it. There was probably a 4-5 month window where I did not eat any veggies outside of the lettuce in the burgers.
So May comes…my birthday. I finally snap out of it. I find out I’m 33% bf(got tested 1st day back in gym). Originally before the breakup I was around…12.5%. And last summer I was 9.8%. So I got on a good diet(from my coach). Got back on my gear(only run 1 cycle a year in the summertime). And felt good. Problem is I been hiding in my house all summer doing nothing but studying, going to gym and sleeping and NOTHING else.
I live in SoCal where all Summer all we do is go to the beach(live in a beach community) and at night pool parties. I am SO fucken embarrassed to take my shirt off. I got tested 2 days ago and I am at 25%. I am making progress, I have so far cut 8% down but at the rate I’m going, I will be down to my goal which is under 14% by maybe October.
So my reason for doing DNP is I do not want to miss out on Summer this year and I also need to get laid already to finally put this breakup behind me and I cannot do that sitting in my house all day studying and sleeping. So that is my reason for doing DNP(I know you guys will all ask this). And yes I know its fucken stupid to get so down over a girl…trust me I heard it from EVERYONE by now and fully agree.
So my coach suggested me DNP 2 weeks ago. Since then I researched the shit out of it. The thread on this site that I linked was VERY informative. I read many logs from other forums as well.
So here is my question: Today I started 200mg of DNP. I will run this for 4 days. Afterwards my coach said up to 400mg for the rest of the time being(doing it for 12 days). The thread said to do the same as well. This scares me a little because going from 200mg—>400mg is literally doubling the dose. My question to you guys is do you guys think that 400mg can be a potentially fatal dose?
Of course I understand there is no magic number that is considered “safe”, at the end of the day its all dangerous and is a poison. And I also understand that everyone is different. But this is a question on your opinions.
My coach told me I would be fine but the reason I question it is because I remember when I was 21, I did my first test cycle(got on AAS because was on college football and had NFL dreams). And I remember that it was a huge difference jumping from 300mg per week of test to 600mg per week of test. I REALLY noticed a difference when I doubled the dose. So to double the dose of DNP scares me HOWEVER everything I read, people seem to handle 400mg just fine.
My coach also told me to stay at 200mg the whole time would be a waste of a DNP cycle and is not even worth running.
Any input would be appreciated, thank you.
