What’s up all, I was the original poster on the “Summer Case Study” thread. I stopped posting on that thread because it turned into me just having a conversation with myself, but I will cover my results here. Cliff-notes at the end of my post for the impatient:
I actually had documented my results and took before/after photos but lost them in a computer format, which is unfortunate to say the least, however I do believe that the supplement does work.
From what I remember I ended up gaining upwards of 6 to 8 pounds in the 12 weeks I was using the supplement. By that time in my life I had my diet dialed in and knew how to manipulate my bodyweight however, so the supplement had no part in my weight gain, but I do believe it helped me gain more muscle and less fat than I normally would have.
Compared to previous months and the months that followed my case study, I would say that the Carbolin 19 did help fend off fat gains, which is nice for me because I tend to gain fat easily. That was probably the biggest effect the supp had on me.
Would I use it again… If it was a little cheaper I might. I’m a cheap bastard and I definitely don’t think I got 120 dollars worth of “effect” out of it. As stated previously, I do think it did something though.
Having said that I would be very interested in hearing someone who had used the new Alpha Male for an extended period of time. In my opinion a supplement is pretty worthless if taken for less than 12 to 16 weeks, so if you only used one bottle don’t bother telling me your results.
I think that the extra 20 bucks for Alpha Male would be worth it, considering all of the anecdotal stories I have heard on this board about its effects on libido and whatnot.
Sooooo… Let me cliff-note all of that and try and make it a little more clear:
-I do believe that Carbolin 19 works, as do other FFB’s on this board. It seems to get positive reviews from this segment of the population. Skinny-Bastards should probably save their money for steak and eggs.
-The main effect it SEEMED to have was that it helped minimize fat gains on my bulk. It definitely did not shed fat while building muscle… but that was just in my body and I wasn’t expecting that to happen anyway.
-If money was not a big issue, I would chose Alpha Male rather than Carbolin 19 due to the other extracts in the product which, at least anecdotally and some clinically(Longfolia for sure), have been reported to work.
