You know, to expand on this subject, I recently had the flu as well and have not been on any anabolics for 3 months.
Typically when I get really sick (like the flu; a cold doesn’t count to me), I drop alot of weight. This could be due in a large part to no appetite but I still strive to take in a fair amount of protein. Usually this still doesn’t help; I still lose the weight.
I decided to take some small amount of anabolics to see this time, with the flu, if I could maintain some of my mass as my poor body tries to recupe.
Based upon this trial, it is my opinion that anabolics are VERY effective in keeping your mass when you’re sick AT low dosages.
I too have MAG-10 and am one of those who still have a plentiful supply. It should be noted that I have an array of other anabolics as well. For this trial, I used MAG-10.
I was sick for 4 days, and on each day I took a single dose of MAG-10 and strived valiantly to maintain my protein intake (Metabolic Drive primarily as I really had NO appetite).
After recuperating from my illness, my weight did NOT change one iota; I was still 208 [lb].
I have also used steroids before to provide my body some “extra help” during times of extreme durress (like serious work and family stress)when I would also typically lose weight. It has worked in that arena as well.
Sorry for hijacking this thread with this testamony as I know it doesn’t quite answer your question. In my opinion though, you should continue the course of your MAG-10 cycle so that illness doesn’t ravage away what you have gained so far.
