    anavar & hgh both put on size

    are you looking for it to help retain muscle when dieting? 5 mg would be suffient for that w/o dramatically changing your muscle structure.

    agreed. 2.5mg twice a day should help you maintain size assuming you are getting enough protein. but to take it solely to lose bodyfat is not what anavar does.

    Var is not a fat burner and neither is hGH. Anavar, as male hormone, promotes lean muscle mass. An increase in lean muscle mass will improve metabolism in favor of more efficient dropping of bodyfat. hGH works to bring all the metabolic functions within your body to more optimum levels, similar to when you are at the height of your youth.

    I don't see you how you can expect to NOT gain weight on anavar - because it is promoting the growth of lean muscle mass. But to get hung up on the scale instead of paying attention to the more important measure of body composition (i.e the ratio of bodyfat to lean muscle mass) sort of tells me, unless you're concerned about making a weight class, you're completely missing the point of "losing fat".

    Given that we don't know anything about the context from which you are asking this, I"m going to err on the conservative side and assume you need to focus on your diet & training and not be looking at drugs for "fat loss".

    the misconceptions are there are crazy!

    if you use x "you can get same results in a few weeks that would take years otherwise" actually saw this posted on another board

    they think if you take anything you can just sit around and the fat will melt off and suddenly muscle will appear

    they actually think you do less work, don't follow a nutrition plan

    man if this is true i am doing it ALL wrong lol cuz i bust my ass year round in the gym and following my nutrition plan

    Nutrition and training drive weight loss not drugs.

    10mg Anavar daily stacked with 1-2iu HGH.

    Ahh, you may want to do some additional research OUTSIDE this forum! Anavar is actually EXECELLENT for a cutting phase (I can personally attest to this) if you are attempting to retain the muscle you have while dieting and performing REAL cardio! 5 mg each day should do the trick. You DO have to be very strict with your diet or you will put weight on instead.

    As a matter of fact, after about day 14 don't be surprised if you start seeing the addition of lean muscle while cutting.

    But do your research because I've seen some incorrect responses here from people that are suppose to "know". Check out more medical research options as opposed to bodybuilding forums. You'll learn what the drug was manufactured for initially, and get a better understanding of it's potential based on studies conducted by respected medical research institutes.

    You'll be pleasantly surprised. ...Lots of myths out there about Var. Make sure you have the facts!

    I don't think anyone here said var was ineffective for cutting

    we said you should use diet and training first and not resort to AAS simply to lose weight

    Anavar was described in 1962 by Pfizer to combat catabolic illness.It was then pulled in the 1980's due to lagging sales and political pressure of atheletes using performance enhancing drugs.It was reintroduced in 1995 by BTG Corp. for use in AIDS wasting.Var is milligram for milligram 6 times more androgenic than testosterone,but has little in the way of estrognic or progestational activity.5-10 mg a day split is effective in women for muscle building purposes.To say anavar will make you lean is a myth....there are other supps that assist i that area....but the major factor is DIET and CARDIO....the history of var!!!
