Is there any point to supplementing with Tribex-500 and/or M on the “Fat Fast Diet” ? I an using Androsol (mainly due to price) for this diet, and after I lose what I want, I am going straight for the MAG-10 for some muscle gains (with the endocrine break, of course).
Currently, I am using the following on “Fat Fast”:
9:00am - wake up, take 3 caps Tribex-500, 35 sprays of Androsol
9:30am - “breakfast” (40g whey shake in water), 3 caps of lame competitor thermogenic (because I had it left over from a while back)
10:30am - multivitamin (1/3 dose of one of those “we have 10000% of everything in our multivitamin” vitamins from a store with a three letter name… Why 1/3 dose ? I take a gang of supplements, and don’t want to over do it. I still get generally > 100% on most of the vitamins/minerals listed on the outside of the bottle)
12:00pm - “lunch” (40g whey shake in water, 2 tbsp flax oil)
1:00pm - 3 caps same theromgenic
4:00pm - workout (3 times a week, about 40 minutes)
5:00pm - “dinner” (40g whey shake in water, 2 tbsp flax oil)
7:00pm - 3 caps Tribex-500
8:00pm - snack -> 2 eggs (hard boiled), or some tuna fish with some hot sauce, maybe a cooked Tuna steak from the good fish store down the street…
10:00pm - 35 sprays Androsol
11:00pm - last shake, same way, 40g whey in water
12:00pm - 3 caps Biotest ZMA
then anytime from midnight to 2am is time for bed.
Yeah, I get to wake up that late I’m a full time telecommuter, which makes all this a lot easier on me.
Before I started the diet, I hadn’t gotten any of my Biotest products from the online order place… I started anyway, with just the thermogenic. I decided there was just no more waiting, and wanted to get staretd. But, I got them on day 2, so no worries. I’ve never tried Biotest products before. One thing I can definitely say about them is this -> I feel great. Better mood, better feeling body, better pump on my last bench session. Androsol, Tribex, ZMA, or the thermogenic…? Not sure which is giving all this to me, but I like it!
This totally gives me a better feeling about supplementation than I had before. I don’t have this “is this stuff doing anything…?” mentality/feeling anymore.
Anyway, I get a little more protein than the published diet had, and I get a little less flax, but I am eating some fish, so it seems that I am Ok on the fat (omega-3/6) part … ?
Shooting for a trip from 265 lbs / ~40% BF to 200 lbs / ~20% (or less) BF on one or two passes at the diet. Not sure if I want to take a 1/2 way break for a “normal” week of food… Any thoughts ?
If it matters ->
I can pass on brand names of the things I listed that I am taking above, if anyone likes
I have been working out for about 1.5 years after 10 years off from high school/early college.
30 years old, drug free (except for Claritin…)
adding cardio soon. It’s been a crazy week at work (I know, I know, it’s just another lazy excuse…)
I’ll have notes on how I fare for anyone that wants them. Keeping a spreadsheet with body weight and body fat percentage (got one of those scales that measures body impedance).
