Ever heard of "ephedrine"? Ever used it? I have and found(a decade ago) that it was not only addictive but extremely effective in burning fat and jolting the CNS to raise awareness to the stratosphere. Now I know it is not as trendy as recreational drugs like MJ and cocaine and alchohol but, given its positive effects, would it not be a good idea to supplement on occasion with? Why or why not. Keep in mind it is a synthetic compound derived from a plant and could be construed(in some possible world) as "natural"...

Long term, it just never got me where I needed to go. I stayed +200 and stayed on crappy processed food. Of course, back then, I thought being 220 was pretty good. But, eventually I packed a lot more besides that back on.

I'm now bouncing around between 170-180lbs and I am pretty sure I weigh less than I did when I was twelve. Started with the Shangri-la diet, went low carb, and then went paleo. I've stayed in this weight range for two years.

The pills have side effects and just don't deliver similar results. If you just enjoy the high, okay, but don't fool yourself into thinking you are doing anything good for yourself.

Ephedrine is great for the fat burning effects but if you're looking for the CNS stimulant that will make you Zeus, go for a standard amphetamine salt (Adderall). It's a much more cognitive experience and also curbs appetite tremendously helping fat loss. I wouldn't use ephedrine over amphetamines only because they have nearly identical addictive potential while adderall is much longer lasting and cheaper than ephedrine. The MJ/Adderall combination is actually akin to the "limitless pill" that pretty much makes you bulletproof.
