Hey guys, new to this forum. I'm 26, 6'0", 235lbs and ~15%bf. Been training for 10 yrs, seriously for 5 or 6. I have an endomorph body type and am very carb sensitive. Currently cutting and decided to try some GHRP-6. I had read about the intense hunger it causes for some, but my source had it for a very reasonable price and my joints have been sore a lot lately so thought I'd give it a shot.
At first I wasn't sure if it was legit because I noticed no increase in hunger at all. I was taking 100mcg am, 100 pwo and 100 before bed. Well that fear was put the rest because i blew the f up! I gained 12 lbs in two weeks - and not good lbs. At first my muscles just felt very full but then it just kept coming to the point that im puffy around my nipples and love handles. I put up with it for a few weeks but it was just too much and too frustrating to look so soft when it is so hard for me to cut anyways.
I cut it back to 100mcg before bed only to hopefully reap the benefits of joint rejuvination and maybe some fat loss, but its been about 6 weeks and while the weight gain as slowed down, I still feel like im looking fatter and fatter. I know it's not related to dietary changes because everything is premeasured and I haven't deviated from that even while taking 300mcg/day. Especially now that I'm only dosing before bed and am not eating again until the following morning.
I guess my question is if there is any mechanism of action from ghrp-6 that could actually cause accumulation of fat in some individuals?
Other pertinent information... I follow a paleo type diet - all of my carbs come from fruit and vegetables, protein and fats come from lean meats, nuts, seeds, olive oil and flax oil, and red meat a few times a week. Eating about 2500 cals/day. Currently also in week six of 600eq/250test/.25 adex eod. I do full body workout m/w/f and cardio m-sat (45min am and pm, 45min am only on the days i do weights). Sunday I am off.
Sorry for the long winded post, just want to get all the info out there that might be useful.
