DNP (2,4-Dinitrophenol) (2,4-Dinitrophenol) DNP is an extremely powerful and beyond controversial fat burning drug. There is no compound on earth that can burn fat at the rate of DNP; however, to say it is beyond dangerous is almost an understatement. DNP is so dangerous.

DNP, 2,4-Dinitrophenol: The Dangerous Weight Loss & Bodybuilding Drug — Tiger Fitness. 2,4-Dinitrophenol entered the spotlight in the 1930s as a miracle weight loss drug. We explore why it may be the most dangerous fat loss drug on the planet.

We explore why 2,4-Dinitrophenol may be the most dangerous fat loss & body recomposition drug on the planet. Last week, an inquest into his death found that it was caused by a weight-loss supplement containing 2,4-Dinitrophenol, also known as DNP. This illegal drug is marketed as a miracle weight-loss aid.

2,4-Dinitrophenol (2,4-DNP or simply DNP) is an organic compound that is used as a pesticide, fertilizer, wood preservative and in photo development. It is biochemically active causing a thermionic effect by inhibiting adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production in cells with mitochondria. Not for human consumption.

DNP / Dinitrophenol is an illegal weight loss drug used and popularized within the underground of bodybuilding. A deadly diet pill that has been used in the underground community. Although DNP is widely considered too dangerous for clinical use, its mechanism of action remains under investigation as a potential approach for treating obesity.

As of 2015, research is being conducted on uncoupling proteins naturally found in humans. DNP (2,4-Dinitrophenol) has a variety of industrial uses, including as a photographic chemical, a fertilizer and in the manufacturing of dyes and explosives. It causes weight loss by burning fat. Anyway, I learned about a chemical called 2,4-dinitrophenol or DNP, which is what they call it in bodybuilding circles.

This drug is mostly used by bodybuilders, from the sounds of it, because of how effective it is at burning fat. Essentially, it makes your mitochondria less efficient, so they need more energy to do the same amount of work. DNP stands for 2,4-dinitrophenol.

This is a chemical that was once used in the early 20th century to ignite dynamite and cast a yellow dye on wood and other handcrafts. A few years later demographical statistics showed that employees who worked with DNP everyday tended to lose weight, often rapidly. Keywords: diet pill, fat burner, 2,4-dinitrophenol, DNP, weight loss, bodybuilding, eating disorder Introduction Due to increased concerns of body weight and image, along with the widespread use of the Internet and social media platforms, the already considerable market of weight-loss drugs and supplements grows rapidly ( 1, 2 ).

List of related literature:

DNP, an industrial chemical, is advertised online for slimmers and body-builders as a weight loss and ‘fatburning agent’, and has caused deaths among those who use it for this purpose.

Note that most experts regard DNP as a drug with inherent dangers that far outweigh its potential benefits.

Considerable weight loss is seen under conditions of chronic but sublethal exposure, and it is interesting that in the 1930s, the uncoupler 2,4-dinitrophenol (2,4-DNP) was quite widely employed as a weight reduction drug.

The only anabolic steroid approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat weight loss and catabolism is oxandrolone, which is given orally (10 mg twice a day), is excreted by the kidney, and has no effects on metabolism other than protein synthesis.

Patients who have been given small doses of DNP lose weight because their fat reserves are used more rapidly to feed the electrontransport chain, and the whole process simply “wastes” energy as heat.

  • He’s honest and I respect that but he’s def got low self esteem and or depressed deep down and he’s not even competing just do test

  • i wrestled in the early 2000’s and we had to cut weight all the time. 20 or 30 pounds is very doable. You can drop 5 pounds of water weight in as many hours. lol.

  • Hey Saket. I see many of your videos and I find them to be much much relative. Thanks a lot for all these stuff which would have taken a lot of time for me to research on.
    I need a little help.
    I am 24, 165cm, 55kgs. I have 188% fat around my belly and hips and much skinny on the upper body. Have good calfs as I have played sports most of my life.

    This was my info. I wanted just one answer brother.

    Do I first gain the muscle mass or do I first drop the higher fat percentage I have?

    Just this answer, other details I will see from your other videos.

    Thanks a lot in advance. ��

  • Winner of a video, I been tryin to find out about “carb cycling diet plan men” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Nantray Carb Caboodle (just google it )? Ive heard some great things about it and my work buddy got cool success with it.

  • why would someone take dnp?…. When you’ve done everything else?
    You done the dieting for years, the training for decades, the supplements, all the gear known to man….. and still….. you only look slightly better than the average joe….. You’ll do anything if you’re desperate enough?
    Everyone duz not have the genetics tha Lee has sooooo….. you self medicate to cover the gap? Is it abit stupid?…. yes…. yes it is….:/

  • But why we need to burn calories? ��, We get colories from every nitrition like fats, carbs, protein, & when if we burn calories, that doesn’t burning our proteins too?? I am confused plz can any one explain me plz��❤️����

  • I’m 26, 15’11 tall, weigh 13.4stone (187lbs roughly) looking to lose fat. I do 16:8 fasting, eat between 12:00 20:00. I do Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday Sunday >50g carbs 180g protein 75g fat. Wednesday & Saturday I aim for about 250g carbs, 180g protein 60g fat. Every day I do a 2.5km run (fasted). After work at 17:00 I do a 15-20min HiiT work out. Every other day I do a leisurely 30min walk. Burning roughly 700 calories per day, eating roughly 1700 calories per day. I’m losing about 2-3pounds per week and I’m on week two. I feel full of energy but also challenged. I think consistency is key in anything you choose to do. Anyone have any tips for me?

  • There are no benefits to any style of diet with regards to weight loss when calories are matched. No need to carb cycle, just stay in a deficit ����‍♀️

  • I weighted 267 pound and got down to 202 Lb. After I got down to 202 LB pounds, I could not lose any more weight. I did same exercise regimen. Which consisted of 25 minutes of weight lifting and 30 minute of stationary bike riding. I took one cup of Whey, spoon full of Benefiter and five glasses of water every day.  
     I eat low-fat foods, no bread or sweets. OK, I cheated and had one slice of cake in six-month period. Back to the original subject. Am I losing fat and gaining muscle mass?

  • Carb cycling is pointless. Calories in Vs calories out is the only thing that matters. Keep carbs consistent. Fluctuating macros up and down can cause stress to the body and cause it to retain water making you appear fatter.

  • 5 low 2 high
    on the lows 230grams of carbs is not low50gs in green veg is low
    on the highreduce all fatscarbs need to be clean like boiled rice, yams, and boiled potatoes, with protein from fish.

    now thats a bad ass diet

  • I read lots of great opinions on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets will help you lost a lot of weight. Has any one tried this popular fat burn methods?

  • If you’re going to do a 27 min. video educating the people on ephedrine, then you should know how to pronounce it. It’s not pronounced efadreen, it’s pronounced effedrine. Like it’s derivative ephedra. This herb is heavily used in the body-building world for fat loss and extra energy.

  • A few people had heart attacks. Hearts already compromised by preexisting health problems, heart disease due to obesity. You can’t treat obesity with a weight loss drug that causes heart attacks in the target market. People can’t regulate their doses properly and they don’t know the condition of their heart. You are pronouncing Ephedrine wrong. EEE-FED-RIN. available in asthma medicine primateen tablets but they also contain guaifenesin an expectorant.

  • Look how about you use a. Athlete who is an endomorph. You call this cycling but he is over 200 grams on a low day? This is so irresponsible as guys without his metabolism are going to just get fat

  • I wouldn’t be so sure, it just doesn’t add up.
    The amount of adverse effects reports were in the one-hundred thousands. Doesn’t that trouble you? Yes, some can be attributed to overdosage, and it was widely used. You said that you, yourself, didn’t experience any adverse effects, but it’s common knowledge that everyone reacts differently on chemical properties you should know this.
    Is this enough reason to just dismiss any critisism on the use of ephedrine? A two-minute google search led to finding this ( ) one of the things that the study reviewed was the causality between the use of ephedrine and death. Many cases were concluded to be indeed caused by the use of ephedrine.

  • We have had ripped bodies since 1940’s.Counting calories starting a couple of years ago.Go figure,,,Don’t believe in calorie counting,Eat 60-70 gms of protein per day in divided meals,eat low carbs and lot of veggies….

  • Not hating on the guy, but he had a poor conditioning on his first bodybuilding show. I would rather listen to a less scientific person with a solid track record, like Chris Aceto, John Meadows or Hany Rambod.

  • The problem with carbs is the refined carbs people focus on like white breads, pasta and rice but legumes, fruit, veggies, potatoes and whole grains are considered whole carb sources and much better for your body.

  • So using a asthma medicine for horses is ok, but taking a drug that was developed in the 1930s to cure obesity makes you a fuckwit…

  • Sam, please get Lee’s opinion of the IFBB banning KaI from the 2015 Olympia as Lee is the only one that will give us an honest opinion. Thanks!

  • Look at me I’m lee priest whatever I say goes. This guy takes testosterone, dianobol and hgh. All three have been proven to have LONG term effects compared to dnp which causes barely any side effects when taken in the right dosage. Don’t listen to him, he bashes on veganism because he says meat tastes the best and I love when steak is cooked raw. Gtfoh!

  • 230 low carb?! Did you guys also know that the more you cheat during your set the more weight you can lift? Also, racking the weights you use causes joint problems so leave your shit out for betas to clean up.

  • Original ECA Xenadrine is still the best OTC thermogenic I’ve used my entire life. I gave up on thermogenic products a year or so after it was banned because nothing else actually worked. The summer after I graduated high school I started taking my training more seriously and in the 10-12 weeks I dropped close to 60 pounds and got stronger/fuller instead of weaker/flat. I definitely was a walking before and after picture to people I graduated with once college started and they saw the change.

  • Hello sir main housewife aa with two baby girls meriya dono betiya operation nal hoeya c jis karke mera weight bohat vad gyea 125 kg ho gyea 65 kg to main bohat diet kiti par weight loss nahi hunda mainu koi eda da steroids daso ki weight 65 nahi ta 80 ho jave

  • Does Custokebon Secrets (do a google search) help me lost lots of fat? I notice lots of people keep on speaking about this popular fat burn diet plan.

  • Has anyone used the Custokebon Secrets to lost a lot of weight? Simply do a search engine search. On there you’ll find an awesome suggestions about how exactly you can lost a lot of weight. Why not give it a chance? perhaps it will work for you too.

  • Great video man! Finally someone knowledgeable talking sense. I think it would make more sense to add a little extra cardio at the end of the cut, be it LISS or HIIT (which can tire you). But all in all as you said, it doesn’t matter how you create the calorie deficit, either through fewer calories or increasing a little cardio. Keep up the good work.

  • Hey Gaurav, its a very informative video. However DNP is also known as the brain fryer drug. The example of the scientist that you gave died due to the very same reason. He was cooked to death and his brain was fried due to extreme high body temperature.

  • aspirin was anti-inflammatory and aspirin a stop the direct impact on the heart which would kill you that’s what the ephedra route would put too much direct impact on the heart stimulus but the aspirin stop the direct impact to the heart to make it harmless and I acted as an inflammatory of swelling inflammation

  • It wasn’t coz they were getting fat and couldn’t move fast. It was due to the cold weather that was making it hard for soldiers to focus. DNP dramatically increases your body temperature. That’s a normal mechanism of DNP to burn fat by accelerating your metabolism. When they were given DNP, there body temperature raised upto 100 to 101°F. That was enough for soldiers to stay warm in cold weather. Not against what you’re saying, coz you’re right for the most part. I’m just correcting the data where correction is needed for right knowledge.

  • its my request to all the brothers out thr,plz don’t take DNP personal experience.
    instead of DNP go for clen and t3 safe and best.. ty.

  • 18:15 18:30 One important question pls: What to do between these mastercycles? Kind of a one week deload with isocaloric eating? Isn’t a drop in volume otherwise unfavourable during a cut? Please help!! ��

  • Found this dnp source a while back under one of these videos, fuck man I’ve been losing weight like crazy. People talk bad about DNP all the time, but with around 65 recorded deaths worldwide, how deadly is it really? You can overdose on anything if you try hard enough.

    I will battle for my freedom to use whatever compound I wish, and encourage everyone reading this to do the same.

    If you’re looking for dnp, [email protected] is the way to go I’m telling y’all. Those guys are just so knowledgeable, and always willing to answer questions, I’ve never bought anything online with customer service like this. Tell him Zodiac sent ya, I’m going for that discount on the next order lol:P

  • Bostin is an idiot. And he always have been and always will be. He will never learn. Why he will die from his stupid use of enhancers. He is all about Russian roulette. Sooner or later he will bite the bullet.

  • He is dumb as a rock about thing he hasn’t tried. It isn’t a rat poison. I wouldn’t listen to him after he got his Mike Tyson tattoo.

  • Love your channel by the way. I am new to it but love your stuff….love the cites and what not. Homeboys got the white paper to back himself up! But for real this was a much better alternative to beta methyl pea you see in so many preparations these days or used to. This stuff is what happens when you ban something good like ephedrine. BMPEA while being effective as a great stimulant and weight loss supplement it has played a huge impact on the long term effect as of my cardiovascular system. My blood pressure has risen significantly and my resting heart rate is always 115ish I’ve seen some literature to support that this drug does increase beta adrenergic receptors in the heart increses overall vascular tone. This leads me to believe that I have experienced this effect and now I feel like my heart is just a ticking time bomb.

  • Somebody has to be really in despair,in order to lean out with this POISON.
    There are other slternative was to shed fat:AAS,GH,CNS stimulants.
    DNP interferes with mitochondrial metabolism and energy production.
    People have claimed it elevates core temperature 1’C!
    I tried it in 2002 for a week.
    My T3 was lower and lost weight,thus i assume it affected thyroid metabolism.

  • FDA doesn’t want ephedrine out there because if people aren’t fat they won’t need as many pharmaceutical medications for them and big pharma to profit from the sale of! Pharmaceutical drugs kill hundreds of thousands of people in the USA every year but they don’t take them off the market because they are too profitable.

  • When considering eating healthy, you must try not to fall victim to modern fad diets. Extreme diets are a risk for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your everyday nutritionary intake. While they may induce rapid loss of weight, these diets will never be a long-term solution for your waistline. You should look up Custokebon Secrets on google search engine since it isn’t just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • Is carb cycling for everyone? I gained 3lbs since starting a carb cycling. The split is one high card day, 3 low carb days, 2 medium carb days and a fasted day. I started 4 days ago but why no changes?

  • so wrong on it DNP is safe at doses like 200 mgs very safe many people use it and works great. Really losing repsepct for him he is so judgmental on anyone doing something different than him.

  • Cheers for this, I have been researching “what is carb cycling for fat loss” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Nantray Carb Caboodle (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my m8 got cool results with it.

  • This kid has serious problems, He’ll be the next Dallas McCarver. Dave why do you entertain this fool for shock value? You think it’s funny? Shame on you.

  • dnp was a prescribed fat burner in the early 1900’s. get educated lee before you spout stupid opinions on things you know nothing about.

  • Ache ache Bodybuilder digajj bhi asi knowledge nahi dete saket bro bahut chotti si umer bahut achi useful information dete ho bro god bless you bro ❤��

  • Hi there, have you considered this diet plan known as the Custokebon Secrets? My mate says it helps people lost a lot of weight. Is that possible? I also heard many excellent review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • First when I heard it’s working method I just thought to take… Then when I heard the side effects my face became ������������ I love my life now.

  • I notice a lot of people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google). But I’m not sure if it’s good. Have you ever tried using this popular fat loss system?

    Defo he cook from inside out… Caution with dnp boys.

  • I read it was used for TNT, the the weight loss was discovered when the shit was seeping into worker’s skin from working without protection from it.

  • Going above 12% bodyfat in a gaining phase/bulk is a bad idea if your main goal is bodybuilding. So losing 6-8% bodyfat is a reasonable goal in 3 months like most contest bodybuilders do without having a diet break or something. Introducing high and low carb/calorie day might help if the bodyfat is below 8%.

    I agree with the training volume on a cut! I have made several mistakes in the past by lowering total volume with the result of losing muscle and tons of strenght ��

  • I heard someone called Lee Thompson is starting a new bodybuilding federation. Could you ask Lee if he’s heard about it and if he would consider competing in it? Thanks Ricky

  • FYI DNP is a biproduct in explosives manufacturing and the way it was discovered to cause weight loss was because a lot of the workers in the factories were losing weight rapidly (and probably dying too a lot of the time) when exposed to DNP

  • ECA is effective but it’s a bitch to get off, it’s similar to taken speed once you stop taken it you will have very low energy which can lead to depression, not worth it IMO

  • Hi Sam can we please get Lees thoughts on Kai Greene not being allowed to compete in the 2015 Mr Olympia and what the reasons may be? ps Fuck the IFBB

  • @jerry brainum Can you research what would seem to be a “Reliable” online company selling ephedrine?? I looked some companies up from Canada and India and emailed them. Also, do you know of any labs that I could sent substances to for independant testing for quality??

  • hey i got some firedrine X-treme (in Canada) and i tried researching on it but i barely found any information. Has any one ever used it? if so if you can share your opinion on it highly appreciated!

  • I didn’t even notice the scratching until you mentioned it. Btw, nobody cares about the quality of the sound. The content is what we care about and your content is superb so don’t worry about sound quality.

  • Sam,

    Please ask Lee Priest about his thoughts on Kai Greene not competing in the Mr.Olympia 2015! Also his thoughts about the reasons behind this.

  • Awesome podcast, loved it, actualy going from 16/17% to contest ready Ahah, ↑ been doing 5 weeks the same crap, wasn’t seeing anything, right now dropped 2 kgs over 3 days.

  • If you want to lose fat, it is best to check out Custokebon Secrets on google. They will make it easier to get the body you deserve.

  • I wonder what lee would say about no Kai Greene… when Kai was in australia my mate ran into him at bondi and he refused to talk and walked away lol…might need to re upload how fucked the IFBB is lol…Hope all is well with lee and you boys!

  • 31:52… Dave finally loses it on Bostin’s constant interrupting. Can’t believe Dave lasted that long. I would have turned off his video feed after a minute

  • Sam, could you please ask Mr Lee Priest on Kai Greene not being able to participate in this years Mr Olympia.. He mentioned that there’s things that he cannot mention and its not fair and etc.. love your videos! from singapore

  • Bostin’s attention span and inability to pick up on social cues just enhances my point that he’e a close relative of Jason Genova.

  • DNP is not a rat poison? It was used in explosives and dyes in the earlier days which lead to a discovery and lead to decades of fat loss protocols, it was sold widely as fat loss supplements. It does have the chance to cause over dose and death but so does fucking NYQUIL… so does advil…… so does a lot of shit we take both legal and not. DNP can be used completely fine with the right bit of knowledge and control, just like steroids, just like caffeine or alchol. This guys a fucking idiot, it was also used to kill cancer cells better and safer on the body than chemo which is widely used… there is over 50 pages of studies on it and cancer. Just because it was used in or is used in different items doesn’t mean a single thing, water is in anti freeze, does that mean why the fuck should we drink water? You’re fucking lost buddy.

  • Read This!!!
    if your new to bodybuilding please note that these people are not a true representatives of this sport. These people are drug addicts and literally they need some help

  • “You can’t take breaks in the shaft.” Dr. Mike Israetel

    All of this info is super helpful as I’m in the middle of maintenance as I type this! Thanks for the awesome interview!

  • I see many people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google). But I’m uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried this popular diet plan program?

  • I got into the best shape of my life on DNP with minimal discomfort. The key is either keeping it to 5 days on (9 days off), or with the traditional 7 on/7 off; you have to taper the dosage to factor in it’s 36 hour half life and taking a light dose of T3 (or maybe T2 if you can find it.) However, I don’t think it’s safe to publicly endorse it; because some people are idiots and take too much. So, drugs are bad Mmmkay.

  • Hey sam ask lee if he could make a video regarding politics and kai greene and not competing in the olympia and if he saw the pics of kai 3 weeks out? Please

  • Im jealous of Bostons low weed tolerance. Im sitting here with like 29 types of dispensory weed trying to get high off the super dank but my tolerance is so high i kinda dont get that high. Good news is i can train hard all i want even right after smokin the weed LOL. it kinda enhances my pumps with the vasodialation from the weed.. for real

  • It makes no sense he won’t give a cheat meal to him just bc he hasn’t ate it in 14 weeks, that’s a GOOD thing! His body would respond much much better! His body needs change for a day and it will 100 percent respond

  • I feel for Boston, when i was 19 i juiced up for a year and a half. I was able to bench 450 and curl 225 at the end. Crazy how you get addicted to attention and you realize you might not ever get off this juice and accept dying young and laughing at the fact you’ll be the biggest guy at the funeral…if i didnt break my hand and lose my job 20 years ago i would have been like this guy….if he dont get off that crap he’ll have to do it for the rest of his life due to his own body not being able to restart his own testosterone production…

  • This is glorious, I been tryin to find out about “carb cycling meal plan for women” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Nantray Carb Caboodle (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.

  • The “Times” newspaper UK. June 30 2018……a court case in progress relating to nearly 70 people who have died taking as few as……2….capsules of DNP. It is deadly…. You are committing suicide if you take them.

  • The drug companies start smear campaigns. Then they release bogus studies to get the public on there side. Then they go to the FDA to have the offending substance banned. Natural ephedra was banned but pseudoephedrine, which is made by drug companies, was not.

  • Carb cycling is only good if you can eat six to eight meals a day and you’re pretty damn active. If You’re the type that can only make it to the gym a couple times a week you better stay clear of carb cycling

  • Bhai body bnane k liye phle gaining krna jroori hai

    Jaise weight gain krke fr jldi muscle bnta hai?
    Bhai kya krna chaiyie pls btana.

  • What a publicity addict!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only gets publicity by doing stupid shit…..Couldn’t make it in the sport of Bodybuilding without the use of any PED’s………… He is always doing things balls to the wall, so to speak…… Said to say but “he won’t make it past 50 years old……I wouldn’t take ANY advice from that Douchebag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Bostin won’t live long unfortunately, hes taking more than piana and Nasser, all the other ones that died, so it makes sense, real sad to hear

  • DNP only messes with your body temp when you eat too many carbs. The guy making this video has literally no idea what the fuck he’s talking about. Why am I not surprised he has a face tattoo

  • This is very informative!!! Guys please checkout my skinny to muscle natural transformation timelapse and how I did it in a year!!

  • Great interview! In contrast to what you both seem to be advocating here, Michael Matthews and a number of other (drug-free) trainers would strongly disagree with the idea that one should switch to higher reps/lower weight when dieting, arguing that taking weight off the bar when in a caloric deficit is a recipe for muscle loss. What does the actual evidence say about this? I’m currently dieting, so any information on this topic would be most appreciated!

  • Sir Maine fat burner liya muscle tech ka aur mujhe piles ho Gaya aur itna ho Gaya tha ke mujhe operation krwa ke thik krwana pada…aage kisi Ko na ho ye is liye pls ek video banao fat burner ke saath kya diet le jo body mein kuch side-effects na ho..

  • Ephedrine is totally legal and I’m not talkin about the plant form from stems and leaves. Primatene tablets contian it and guaifensiin. Who doesn’t love being able to adequately expectorate as they workout btw….while you are in the pharmacy pickup some caffiene pills and aspirin.

  • I still use ECA, and it totally works. But there is another combo that also works, I used it before I ever heard of eca. That is the Choline, Inisotol, Di-Methionine, B6. In the proper ratio, I believe it is 2 times Choline to Inositol dosage. Jerry does this sound familiar?

  • Do natural popular weight loss diet plan like Custokebon Secrets really work and if so, how effective are they? I’ve heard numerous awesome things about this popular fat burn diet plan.

  • Aspirin kills something like 10,000 people a year. People need to just get over it and put a warning on supplements with possible side effects and then forget about it. Imagine a world with adderall diet pills it would be heavan.

  • Anyone know what is Custokebon Secrets about? I hear many individuals lost a ton of weight with Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google).

  • Anyone here old enough to remember the liquid drops that first came out that were ephedrine based I’m quite sure? I believe it was called “Ballistic” and for good reason…hahaha….that stuff would have you flying from set to set in the I’m sure it contained more than the allowed 8mg that are around

  • I had listened to how carbs were correlated to gaining of weight and for the most part to keep away from carbs, at the same time had at no time contemplated utilizing them to trim inches away. The number one concept behind the 4 cycle fat loss treatment is used to teach your whole body to melt fat for energy in place of carbohydrate.

  • Gaurav bhai please anabolic steriod par vedio banaiye ki agar koi use karta he to safe use kaise karen kitna dose lena he and side effects also

  • Bhai how is lipo 6 fat burner? I have just started gymming and my trainer wants me to try that to get abs fat, please advise if it’s good product, he took 8k for that too

  • This video is fantastic! It helps me recall of times when my spouse used Custokebon Secrets to lose 16 lbs and enjoy being healthy again! Most of us wish to lose fat, however we also require to stay healthy and balanced, and that’s what Custokebon Secrets gifted.

  • If you want real supplements that actually works, sadly you gotta go illegal. There are plenty good stuff thats illegal that will not destroy your hormonal levels like steroids do.

  • Your cutting calories seem very high. Sadik Hadzovic who is a champion bodybuilder is 220lbs and cuts at 2150. I would like to know your weight, how many times a week you weight train, and for how long. How many times a week you do cardio and for how long.

  • suggest which protien to take.idk which protien to take muscle blaze or idk i and loosing my weight along with gaining muscles so can u help me please

  • but you have to understand dosage if you double and triple the recommended dosage you could be dead but that doesn’t mean that the effect of aspirin ephedra and a fat loss but it’s too late now you can’t get it

  • I actually Have collapsed in the middle of the street and had a seizure, peed my pants and all. I was up 24h, Driving a 5h road trip. I believe I took 3 Yellow Jackets for energy. I was 23 is very great shape and was currently in the military. Ephedrine might Be “Safe” but can easily abused due to ignorance of what this compound is and might be to dangerous for general population.

  • Its still shock me just how some people do not know about Fenoboci Diet Plan although many people using it. Thanks to my buddy who told me about this. I have lost a ton of weight.

  • Some guy on another site who was a serious BB said he lost 23 pounds in 10 days taking up to 1200 mg and he says why have a 3-4 month precontest protocol when he could use DNP and be close to stage condition in 10 days but I heard people feel like total shit so how could anyone train at a high intensity which feeling like shit?

  • Forgot to mention, I have to take 17 ephedrine 8mg with caffeinne pills to get the desired affect. They will never ban it completely as it’s the main ingredient in sinus meds like sudafed. We know sinus meds are pricey, and the government is not going to lose campaign dollars to fight these big drug companies…..not a chance. What do you think?

  • Sam, Hurry up and make a new video, I’m getting withdrawal symptoms! I’m having to watch old videos to keep me sane. What does Lee think about Kai and the corrupt IFBB?

  • Does the momentary rise in blood pressure decrease after usage?

    What about after long term use?

    Thanks for the video and reply. Subbed.

  • Hi Sam and Lee! I just wanted to ask you if you could ask Lee about his opinion about Kai Greene Being disqualified from the 2015 Mr.Olympia. Very sad. Thank you both. Big fan.

  • SAAAMMM thank you for all the videos, can you please ask Lee what’s his thoughts on Lee thompson npc new federation!! From what lee thompson is saying is what me priest as been saying for years!!! Thank you

  • So um, I want to know. All of those bodybuilders who have a ton of body mass and visible abs. Are their abs visible because of said fat burners? I need to know how these unnatural abs are accomplished.

  • This stupid ass picture with his tongue sticking out like he’s a freak is supposed to be his best look and he honestly looks like a guy who has been lifting for a couple years

  • This video is accurate from a study that it came out. Eca stak 3 times a day compound the effect. Everything have a side effect by dumb fuck. Food is a side effect, let ban that.

  • Cheers for this, been searching for “carb cycling women” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Nantray Carb Caboodle (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my brother in law got amazing success with it.

  • Saket I have a query that is it possible to build six pack abs without any protein powder and other supplements………. Can’t we build it by eating available vegetables and other stuff

  • Iss chomu ko mat suno bhailog.

  • I agree with everything you say in the video but your daily carbs on your low-carb days is delightful. I probably don’t have that many in two weeks.��
    You look way better than me, by the way. Just sayin’.

  • There was no mention of ephedrine’s use in the production of crystal meth. It’s unfortunate but it seems that tweakers with a hankering for meth have also contributed to having it banned.

  • If you guys are wondering, DNP was originally used to store dynamite to stop it blowing up when they were transporting it. The miners would take the dynamite out of the crates and the DNP would soak through their clothes they realized that it was causing them all to burn fat and in the 30’s it was used as a fat burning supplement. Russian soldiers also used it to stay warm in winter

  • I used to use it in the 90s. It was very effective for me. However it did give me jitters at night. Even if I took it around noon and did cardio at night, when I went to bed my mind was fully awake for hours.
    Others I know that took it had some serious problems where they hot extremely hot, sweating uncontrollably, and some had heart rate so fast they had trouble breathing and passed out. But I never had all that.

  • I’m at a crossroads with this fat loss thing, I’m 50 pounds overweight, I have about a year of training with weights and as a consequence I have made some muscle and strength gains in the gym; sometimes I do a little cardio during the week, but I’m just sick tired of being fat.
    The matter is: I don’t know if I should drop the weights and focus on really intense ;ong cardio sessions in order to shed these pounds quickly, take a diet break and then lift again to improve my aesthetics or keep weight lifting and lower my calories dramatically.
    I have been getting better at dieting and now I think that I’ve got the hang of calories and macros completely, currently just maintaining my actual weight.
    I’m 5’7″, 214 pounds 27 years old male; trying to get the more aesthetic kinda bodybuilder lean physique, I don’t take hard PED’s only creatine (nothing against them, but they’re so expensive and I would not know how to do them properly without really messing my system).
    If the english is not very good, my aplogies, not a native speaker.

  • Everyone say thanks to that stupid cyclist that consumed half a can of orange powder. That’s the gloom and doom story that ended it all. They probably killed the poor bastard just to sell the ban.

  • Cheers for this, I’ve been looking for “carb cycling meal plan male” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Nantray Carb Caboodle (do a search on google )? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my neighbour got cool success with it.

  • Please make a video for Diabetic viewers as well. We are restricted to only 1 g/ body weight of carbs. So pls explain how shall we manage our macros and micros through our fat burning process.Thanks

  • Heya, The best results that I have ever had was with Janes magic plan (i found it on google) Without a doubt the most helpful diet that I have ever tried.

  • I took LESS THAN HALF that amount of Aspirin per day for a while and it really put a strain on my kidneys, plus I almost bled to death (I was taking high dose of Omega3 too, which further thins the blood). Avoid! I’m not joking.

  • I use carb cycling finally got the science down after several attempts with the diet but it helped me with my transformation to get shredded

  • been on the ECA stack since 2012, during most of that time i didnt touch pop or alcohol, 32mgE, 400mgC, 100mgA have not experienced any psychological or medical problems yet. I only take it once a day prior to working out. gains have been average and consistent while reducing my bodyfat %. It is no wonder drug that will make you skinny but it does provide a boost to your metabolism and increased energy for working out.

    IMO it is better than that crap pre-workout stuff that other people use

  • As someone who has used ephedrine and caffeinne for years, my tolerance even with cycling off and on, has become quite high and I switched off to a vet clenbuterol pump but it just doesnt work as well, or give you that initial kick in the ass to get going. Any suggestions? Do you remember the drops that came out first, I think they were called Ballistic.??that stuff was strong and came out before the ephedrine tabs did here in Canada. Late 80’s or early 90’s I think??

  • Quick question bro I do like like 15km steps a day and eat boil eggs and green tea in morning
    Olive oil fried egg and roti and green tea and oats and green in the lunch
    Am I doing good?

  • How do you track you carbs with a sushi meal do you guesstimate about how many carbs and fats and proteins are taken in or do you track it all

  • I was working in a supplement store at the time and when we got the news…I bought all of our supply at a reduced price…I was going to keep my eca stack going…FDA be damned!

  • Cant truat isreatel, fucker supports a total fraud, is a total fraud and endorses stolen valour, paedophilia, racism and hatred of women.

  • I was pissed when this combo was banned and i worked in a supplement store when it was brought is the best fat burner i ever used.

  • Instagram pe support karo: @saketgokhale ��

    BELIEVE. You all can do it. Patience rakho, consistent raho, har roj ek calorie deficit mein khao. Make me proud everyone❤️

  • people are so naive….go ahead and put garbage into your body for a quick shortcut and wait and see 25 years later they will tell you all the health problems it causes….

  • Calorie counting male bitch style.. just eat continuesly well and hit gym regurly.. that simple.. don’t be one of these male women

  • Ok next level question. What about heavy load body weight weighted basic exercise like in strength wars they we’re doing +185 lb weighted dips. I don’t remember how many they had to do but if you’re training like that how is this not beneficial for everything talked about all around as all together?????

    I started doing weighted body weight stuff and when I do isolated lifts or focus on 1 area I feel as if I’m just stronger all around and gain extra reps by a lot maybe even due to a stronger core enabling a little sturdier and maybe heavier deadlift??

  • Hello Saket! I’m still confused about how much calories should I take.Can you please help?

  • Yar khud hi bolte ho logo ko ki ye use mat ko tum kya kar rahe me bhi ek bodybuilder hu bro mene bhi steroid li ye to pata hai body pattern so aam logo ko chutiya mat banao

  • Well, my professor in biochemistry says there is promise in using DNP for fat loss, however it’s still far from having relative safe uses. It’s all in the chemistry and not necessarily, “hey, let me take some rat poison.” The science behind DNP is quite interesting.

  • Just to give you an idea of how popular and wide spread its use was… when the International Olympic Committee banned the use of Ephedrine (ephedra, ma huang), the following year the United States claimed that over 60% of its athletes suffered from exercise-induced asthma allowing them (medical use of stimulant inhalants is allowed) to test positive for it.

  • U cleared my doubts nd can u tell me how shld i built muscles at home and my height is 5’11” and my weight is 57 kg and my body fat is 19% what shld i do to reduce this fat and put on some muscle.

  • I am a 5ft 6 42 year old woman weighing 200lbs I was once 163 lbs from my highest weight 240lbs I am currently doing intermittent fasting and carb cycling comsuming 50g on my low days and about 80g on my high days am I to consume more carbs than this? I’m also moderately physically active

  • Ephedra 375 mg (supplying[8%/vol.] 28 mg Ephedrine)
    Kola-Nut (75% caffeine)… 375 mg
    White Willow Bark… 50 mg
    Chromium Picolinae… 400 mcg

    Best combination for fat loss if anyone remembers Nature’s Lab Thermogenesis ( Red Rockets)

  • Being taking it for 28 years as a pre workout. Real ephedrine? BRONKAID ( 25 mg )or DIMETADRINE (12.5 mg ). Pharmacy sold as an asma medication. Driver license requested to keep record of individual usage. Cheap, real an inexpensive.

  • I have found carb cycling to be of a great benefit in burning off fat. I do 5 low or no carb days, one high carb day, and then a semi fast day. On the 5 low or no carb days I increase my fat and protien intake. On the carb day I ignore the nutrition info and all my body to lead my food intake. The semi fast day is a lot of liquids and no food until 3 PM. The semi fast day is easy since my body is still working with the carbs from he prior day. This routine in dieting has restulted in a loss of 45 lbs since Jan 1st 2019 while allowing me to increase my run speed from 5 mph to 5.7 mph for 30 minutes and adding 70 lbs on my bench press.

  • What exactly is Custokebon Secrets? How does this thing really work? I see many people keep on speaking about this popular fat burn diet plan.

  • SAM!
    Please ask lee with all due respect his oppinion on the recent news of kai being taken out of the olympia line up and if he thinks it is due to politics or what not. Appreciate any sort of feed back from The man with the best arms!

  • Hi Sam, Been watching these videos for a long time and I’m a huge fan of Lee. Could you ask him about the ungodly picture of him flexing his tricep with Tom Platz screaming in the background? Where was that, what year, and what were the circumstances behind that picture as it is extremely iconic. Thanks!

  • ” No, I need to stop with the experimenting, I mean, I will probably never stop experimenting obviously, but ermm have you ever tried adrenaline Dave?” LOL

  • SAM we need a video on the recent Kai Greene kicked out of olympia need to ask him what he thinks and should make it long and actually have a discussion on it (if possible)

  • One thing Mike says wrong that I find applies to many people is that just eating low fat foods can drive your hunger and cravings crazy. Fats satiate and calm me at night for less calories than stuffing myself with bunch of fruits and vegetables

  • I think 30 minutes walking before breakfast is lose weight fast.

    You can burn more Fat
    when you hungry.
    It’s 10% more effective
    than takikg Carbs,not hungry. It is showed by

  • I actually have a lot of respect for Boston and think he would be a great coach just because of all the stupid shit he has done to him and continues to die as he learns what each compound does and at what dosage… anybody else feel the same?

  • I wouldn’t be so sure, it just doesn’t add up.
    The amount of adverse effects reports were in the one-hundred thousands. Doesn’t that trouble you? Yes, some can be attributed to overdosage, and it was widely used. You said that you, yourself, didn’t experience any adverse effects, but it’s common knowledge that everyone reacts differently on chemical properties you should know this.
    Is this enough reason to just dismiss any critisism on the use of ephedrine? A two-minute google search led to finding this ( ) one of the things that the study reviewed was the causality between the use of ephedrine and death. Many cases were concluded to be indeed caused by the use of ephedrine.

  • Heya, The best success that I have ever had was with Janes magic plan (just google it) Without a doubt the most useful diet that I have ever tried.

  • When you have your meal plan and training optimized,follow it to the letter,don’t miss your meals,don’t slack in the gym..don’t miss a workout unless sick.the e/c/a stack works like a charm!People will accuse you of taking drugs.

  • Ephedrea is a predecessor of the amphetamine Ritalin.So if I take it, I get real sleepy, because of ADD.Real sleepy my metabolism goes down, I get fat.

  • Your intro has improved in the sense that the volume contrast between the intro and the actual interview has leveled off a bit. Your old intro (the one with the loud sound of the chromosomes replicating) was super loud in comparison to the interviews. Thanks for all that you do!
