After researching Bromocriptine and reading Lyle’s well written book about this drug, and after finding very few people logging their attempt with. Pre- and during- workout nutrition just recently dialed in as per Lyle’s Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports and with the help of the wide selection. I just finish reading Lyle Mcdonald’s Bromocriptine book and it’s seems most of my problems have to deal with high level of prolactine.

Humans show some of the same tendencies as the rats mentioned, and the same basic neurochemistry too. Even a 5 to 10 pound weight loss in obese folks improves health indices, but keeping even that off for more than a little while is pretty rare. A quick look at the dieting literature shows an exceptionally poor rate of success.

In addition, it’s very safe at the doses needed, fairly inexpensive, legal, and not too hard to come by. Since nobody likes restriction or hunger, most people go back to old eating habits and gain all the weight back.

Even if you weren’t wondering, I’m going to tell you. I know I’m lean, healthy, all of that. The real problems for this group are physiological. Steroids, thyroid medication, injectable growth hormone, cortisol blockers, appetite suppressants, that’s just a partial list of the chemical warfare that occurs in elite bodybuilding and athletics.

Keeping it off long-term, there’s the real problem, and it’s where most people fail. It’s the same reason that nutcases become psychologists and fat girls become dietitians. Most are just stopgaps or kludge fixes, nothing very permanent beyond ‘Deal with it’.


Drugs work great because they allow mcronald to step outside of our normal physiology. Like when you’re in the womb and the first few months of life early. The data I’m going to present turn out to apply to dieters in general, because the mechanisms at the heart of the problem are the same.

As you might imagine, fat mcdonsld takes off. Psychologically, the problems are less since most athletes equate suffering with progress in the first place, which is both good and bad.

Oh yeah, they also don’t burn off excess calories as well with overfeeding 4. In contrast, being skinny meant that you tended to die when food wasn’t available because you starved to death that much sooner. People would typically fatten up during the summer when food was available, to ensure that they could survive the winter when food wasn’t around.

Without drugs euphemistically referred to as ‘props’ or ‘gear’ in the subculturenatural athletes lose muscle mass at an alarming rate and have totally screwed-up hormone levels when they get very lean. To your body, dieting is fundamentally identical to starvation, it differs only in extremity.

And nobody really likes restriction even if it’s self-imposed. You’ll find out how it ‘knows’ in the next chapter. They are all ultimately sort of kludge fixes, which aren’t addressing the real problem hint: In contrast, when you underfeed them their metabolic rate decreases, they decrease their activity, and increase food intake 3which brings them back to their setpoint again. Actually, that sentence has it backwards. You can also breed rats with a high setpoint to begin with.

Dieting athletes and bodybuilders have a slightly different set of problems although they turn out to be related in terms of the mechanism involved. The only pleasure we might ly,e in this regards is knowing that they will be the first to die if a famine ever comes.


You probably have more fat cells than you’d otherwise have, as well as a brain that ‘wants’ you to be fat. That is, your body doesn’t ‘know’ that you’re only dieting for 8 weeks to look good in bromodriptine bathing suit. A fed rat brain is a happy rat brain, or something like that.

The big difference is that we appear to defend against underfeeding a whole lot better than against overfeeding.

My friend Bryan Haycock, who has always wanted to be huge, has dedicated most of his time to studying muscular growth physiology for the same reason. But bromocripptine research builds up and we figure out what’s causing the problem, we are getting closer to the answer. In addition to having a lower metabolic rate overall, bro,ocriptine bodies generally adapt faster and harder to caloric restriction or exercise than men’s bodies do 6. I’ll tell you that too. Essentially, their brains ‘want’ that person to be fatter and are sending powerful appetite simulating mcddonald to get those people to eat.

Did I mention that drugs work great? They want to fix themselves, too. Physiol Behav In most people, when you overfeed, metabolic rate goes up a little and hunger decreases a little, if at all.
