Gains will differ from one individual to another depending on body size and level of experience in the gym. To make sure you're gaining muscle, not fat, don't just consider your scale weight. Instead, rely on what you see in the mirror and use a tape measure twice a month to keep track of your waist and hips (you don't want to gain there) as well as your biceps, chest and quads. Also, don't think that you have to gain a set amount of weight each and every week. "Your mass gain doesn't have to be uniform," Aceto explains. That means you can gain 1/2 pound one week and 1 1/2 the next, perhaps none the third week and still remain on course. "Expecting uniform gains ignores the intricate makeup of the body and the way it gains mass - or loses fat - which is by no means in linear fashion," adds Aceto.
Now look at the right side of the above diagram, the sources. To keep you alive, your body needs two things, plain energy to burn in the form of carbs or fat and then amino acids in the form of protein. Your body has an amazing series of emergency backup system to keep you alive should food be scarce. Your stomach is the gas tank for ordinary use. Your bodyfat is the backup up generator to be turned on when food is scarce. And your muscles are the emergency backup, your body wont turn on this nuclear power plant to cannibalize muscle unless its a DIRE emergency. Energy can come from any of the three systems but amino acids can only come from the stomach or the muscles.
I recently tried LGD 4033 and Caradine and it did not go to well. My first and last dose was one a week ago and im just now starting to feel normal again. I took 5mg of LGD 4033 and 10mg of Caradine. Five drops of 4033 and ten drops of Caradine. I took them at about 530am because i workout in the morning. I do my workouts fasted but this morning i had two cups of black coffee. After i headed to work with a big cup of coffee with coconut milk, mct and great lakes gelatin but no food. I usually don’t eat until ten or so. Around 830 i started to have high anxiety and the chills. Then i started feeling nauseous and just over all not myself. First day was rough and then each day after got a little better. Where did i go wrong? Way to much coffee and no food after a workout? Did i get the dose wrong? I know your not a doctor but i was hoping you might have a few idea where i went wrong.
