    Reading about some of the people that take EC I was thinking of getting some for those days when I'm dragging butt. I don't drink coffee or pop so I don't get my caffeine that way. Just wondering how often you take it, every day even if your not training, more than once a day??
    I took Hydroxycut about 5 years ago when it had the ephedrine (whatever the stuff is they don't make it with anymore) and if I took more than one a day I couldn't sleep and even just taking one pill a day three times a week when I stopped I got headaches :(

    Never. I have a bad reaction when I have too much caffeine. :(

    I was taking it almost every morning before I trained and then none on Sundays (off day), but I found I crashed really hard in the afternoon. That sucked! And I didn't want to start depending on it for energy all day long (i.e. taking E/C in the afternoon too), so I stopped taking it altogether.

    I still have caffeine in the morning for a bit of energy, but no more E for me. :finger:

    this is me, but I'm trying to stop right now.
    I normally drink coffee in the morning, then after lunch have more coffee with E..

    If feeling tired, I take it before weight training.

    I'll pop a caffiene pill in the morning if im dragging, and another around 3 or so if needed. i don't drink coffee or sodas so we're in the same boat.

    I leave the E for contest time and weight loss

    I take it in the morning pre-training and then again mid-morning before lunch. Anything after that and I am shaky wired all day and can't sleep.

    But even more than the appetite suppressant, it is probabaly an even bigger mood booster for me. I am in a great mood, and I get so much more accomplished at work and am more focused. At the times where I've stopped it for a week or longer, I noticed the exact opposite.

    As far as EC goes, yes I use it 2X a day. Early am and early to mid pm. I do notice however after 3 weeks the effects are not as strong or rather, I am not "feeling" the same effects. I was considering switching to a fat burner and taking it once in the am, with EC mid day and another fat burner late afternoon to switch it up. I realize this may be just plain wrong or even silly to consider, but any thoughts are appreciated.

    I drink 1/2-caff coffee and green tea. Every once in a while I'll have a sugar-free Red Bull, but again, I can't have too much or I have a bad reaction.
