Though I eat strict paleo I cannot get the weight to move. I've been reading about adrenal fatigue, leptin-resistance, hormonal imbalances etc. and often come across recommedations to supplement with pregenenolone to get the hormonnal systems back in balance.
Have any here tried this? If so, what is your experience? Or Should I just stay away from such experimentation - is it dangerous and going to do more damage in the end?

I am currently supplementing with pregnenalone, 50 mg/day. No effects thus far, but it has only been like a week or so.
The recommended pregnenalone dosages vary depending on the reason you are taking it. Why are you thinking about taking it?
I personally will only do a short trial of perhaps a month's duration, even though I bought a billion pills to get free shipping on Amazon. Reason being that it is a hormone (duh) that can screw some stuff up. I do not want to increase my chances of losing hair, developing acne, etc etc. Most doctors don't know anything about pregnenalone, some love it, and some caution against it. From what little I read, I think it's a worth a try for certain conditions, while keeping caution in mind. Not a panacea, but a possible temporary help.
