My Yohimbine HCL Pulse Experiment: I Did Not Follow the Protocol Weeks 6 and 7

7 Days
Source: tracking.

I did not follow the protocol for the past two weeks due to being out of town and getting free breakfast and lunches. I know, no discipline. 

Kicked things off on Monday, November 13th with a Greg Plitt liquid diet and the water along with glycogen starting leaving my body. Weighed in at 209.5 pounds on the 14th. We will see how it goes.

How to Take

Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details

Dosages of 0.2mg/kg bodyweight have been successfully used to increase fat burning without significant implications on cardiovascular parameters like heart rate and blood pressure. This results in a dosage of:

14 mg for a 150lb person
18 mg for a 200lb person
22 mg for a 250lb person

Supplementation is most effective between meals or during short term fasting.

Caution should be exercised at higher body weight, since the cardiovascular system may not be prepared to handle a stimulatory agent such as yohimbine. When supplementing yohimbine for the first time, always start with a half-dose and assess tolerance before proceeding.

Caution should also be exercised since many supplements containing yohimbine either do not list how much yohimbine is included, or if they do, the actual dose ranges from 25-150% of the dose listed. Since the dosage may be higher than listed, this is extra reason to start with a lower dose.
When pairing yohimbine with other stimulatory agents, half-dose both supplements and work up to the recommended dose cautiously, as two supplements can interact negatively.
