Even though I don't feel any different, EC is definitely working.

    Last week (before I started EC) I had lost roughly 1lb. I started EC exactly 1 week ago today and the only thing I changed in my diet was dropping my calories by about 100.

    I weighed-in today and I've lost 2.6lb, but all of my lifts are either the same or up from where they were 2 weeks ago.

    6 more weeks and about 8 more lb's and I should be seeing abs :wiggle:

    Word of warning:

    Strength will stay up or even increase now, but after a couple weeks on E/C at a caloric deficit and you will generally see a definitive drop-off in strength.

    I PR'd my first week on EC, then nearly the start of the 3rd weak I was already down 8lbs and stength was dropping.

    I have about a 1.5 week supply of E left...what brand do you guys recommend that has the full 25mg of HCL. The bronkaid I have no is ephedrine HCL sulfate, which apparently only has 18-19g of ephedrine HCL.

    Is there a reason I don't see anyone here stacking the EC with aspirin? That was the stack everyone was doing a couple years ago on most body building forums.

    It was the thing a couple years ago. Now people have come to the conclusion that it doesn't do much, and can actually be bad for you.

    So now people typically run EC or ECY. I don't use the Y though because of how many horror stories I have heard of it giving people nausea and stomach cramps.

    I use EC 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. When I am on I stick with EC exclusively (aside from other supplements of course), and during those 2 weeks when I am off I use sesamin and GTE.
    It works pretty well so far. I've only been on a week, weight is about the same, but I am noticeably leaner already.
    And last year when I ran this stack like this I lost over 15lbs in a month. However, that did more bad than good because I wasn't in the gym as much as I should have been and lost a lot of muscle.

    This time around I am being very strict with the timing of my pre/post workout protein/carbs, and keeping creatine in me while on the EC to at minimum retain my current muscle... and if at all possible, keep adding it.

    Also, another big benefit of EC is that you (hopefully) won't consume much alcohol on it. You shouldn't really be drinking while on EC and there have been a few times this week already where i've said "damn, I could go for a class of whiskey" and normally I would, but I didn't because I didn't want to mix EC with alcohol.
    So it even helps in that respect as well.
