The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Effect of Adderrall (XR) on diet / weight lifting?

    Does anyone know if Adderrall (extended release version) has any negative impacts with regard to weight lifting?

    I'll probably be taking it 3-5 days a week depending on what classes I have. Dose is starting in the 20mg range but may possibly increase to 25mg (once per day in the morning). I've heard rumors of Adderrall leading to weight loss, and that would be the worst thing possible for me at the moment... I'm struggling to put on weight but still making headway nonetheless.

    The only supplements I take are Maximus and fish oil so I'm not really concerned about it interacting with anything else atm.

    And yes, it's prescribed to me, so no need for lectures about drug use

    It leads to weightloss because it hinders appetite, and slightly boosts your metabolism. I've been on adderall since I was 19 (I'm 24 now). I get hungry even when I take it, just not as often. Just remind yourself to eat and you'll be fine.

    FYI: At my highest intake (during school) I was on 25mg XR along with 10mg instant release that I would take in the afternoon. I bulked even when I was putting 35-40mg into my body/day.

    This exactly. I've been prescribed it recently and have definitely noticed a decrease in appetite. But after about a month using it, I've adapted to just powering through and eating what I need to.

    It's great for cutting though

    For reference, I typically only take 10mg/day, and add a second 10mg if I'm really distracted.

    I've taken it as well when I was younger and this is exactlly what I'd recommend.

    It is certainly going to curb your appetite. Take it as prescribed and you will be fine.
