I imagine if you were a week out from a show you could start using the DNP to dry out. As soon as it hits you the sweat comes out so fast you could watch yourself until you hit the right look but I would have all the necessary supps on hand because you dry out scary fast.

dnp dries you out? I sweat a ton but im like most others where it causes me to retain water .. im looking for a way to drop the retention fast after discontinuing

Sorry Vick, this is a bad idea. DNP does NOT dry you out. It causes you to retain water. Sweating alot does not correlate to drying out.

Who made this post admin? I have to disagree with much of this. I have never seen loose stool on DNP fiber or not. Higher carbs mean higher heat, you don't want. "go crazy with the carbs" as you will be on fire. I get a rash on my forearms from DNP I pre-dose Benadryl for a week prior to counteract this.

Old post from around 2000 but this is where everyone got there info on what to run with DNP.
A pretty much pioneered the use of the stuff.



Feel Good while on DNP
A Post by Animal

As you may already know you should be taking the following per day.
1200-1500mg magnesium in 2 divided doses.
2-3000mg vitamin C.
1200IU of vitamin E
200mcg of selenium.
1000-2000mg of calcium (can't take it with the magnesium, though. Take it
before bed)
Melatonin if you can't sleep and it is also one of the best anti-oxidants.

I felt like shit when I went above 400mg and sweat profusely on 600mg and
800mg which lasted for 2 days. I weigh around 95kg (210).

Here is what I am taking:
600mg of DNP which would be 6mg/kg which is well above the recommended 3-
5mg.
You have to divide it into two doses of 300mg 12 hours apart.
After you hit your 600mg limit you don't take the next 300mg for 36 HOURS
>From the first dose!
So, if I took the first dose at 6AM on Sunday morning and the second 300
mg at 6PM Sunday night, the 3rd dose would not be until 6PM on Monday evening.
The fourth dose would again follow 12 hours from the 3rd which would be
at 6AM on Tuesday morning.

I am also taking ECA with this just for fun although at only 2 x a day for
the ECA.
How am I not sweating all over the place and not feeling like shit and/or
dehydrating in the middle of summer while going on hour or longer rides
in 85 plus heat?. Let me tell you again that I hated the way this shit made
me feel.
YOU HAVE TO TAKE GLYCEROL AND PYRUVATE!
I don't know if you can take one without the other because I was using the
glycerol (G) and pyruvate (P) to enhance endurance and stem dehydration
which I am very prone to. I think, however, that you will have to do them
both as there is a synergistic benefit. I have taken G alone and while you
have more water to hold on to, you just seem to sweat more. The G-P let
me drink ½ my normal volume of water on a ride and that is what made me
try the DNP ECA experiment.

Glycerol dose. YOU ONLY NEED 1 TABLESPOON 3 TIMES A DAY! One in the morning,
one in the afternoon and one right before bed. Fuck that shit where those
idiot researchers tell you to take 1 gram for every kg bodyweight. They
are idiots and obviously have never taken it or asked the athletes how they
feel. Let me tell you, you feel like shit! You feel bloated and sometimes
get a headache and you piss A LOT! 1 tablespoon 3 times a day comes out
to ½ what they recommend to take 2 hours before an event. The glycerol keeps
your muscles hydrated and limits the sweating. It will fight the dehydrating
effects of the ECA. As we know, DNP is carbohydrate specific and glycerol
also is a carb source that can't go to fat. Glycerol also increases power
output which may be an added benefit of the type of carb source it is. (Don't
quote me or call me on this carb source because I don't really care what
you think. All I know is that it works and I don't have the time to look
up the frigin' mechanisms)

Before I explain the P, let me tell you that glycerol and glycerin are the
same damn thing! A good recipe for taking your glycerol is 1 packet of Kool-
aid, 1/8 cup sugar, 1 T glycerol and 32-4oz of water. The glycerol makes
the kool-aid taste like OJ because there are alcohols and fermentation products
in the OJ which the glycerol mimics.

Pyruvate dose. 2-5grams a day. Start out at 900mg or so 3 times a day and
go up from there. I am at 1.5mg 2-3 times a day and if you don't work your
way up it will give you gas and the runs.
As I mentioned above, I think the P is working synergistically to hold on
to the water in your muscles. Additionally, it is an energy source and/or
it is manipulating the Krebs Cycle intermediates (?) and allows for a different
energy production pathway without going through the whole rigamorole. (Again,
I don't care what you think or what the exact mechanisms are. I know it
changes/manipulates an ATP/energy pathway and decreases lactic acid output
and if it ain't the Krebs cycle I don't really give a fuck. It works.)

Now you have a recipe on how to feel good on an overdose of DNP! To recap
you need:
3 Tablespoons glycerol 3x a day.
1g Pyruvate 3x a day.
DNP at 36 hour intervals.
If you start to feel bad, just drink some sugared pop or take some glucose
or maltodextrin with your psuedo-OJ mix.
The only drawback is that you will still smell rather bad and will emit
a vinegar type odor although you won't be sweating all over everything.
If you notice you are starting to sweat more it is time for another glycerol
dose.


I believe that adding dihydroxyacetone (DHA) could also improve this.

I've ran DNP from 250 to 750 and stacked with everything from eca, clen, t3, clen and t3, clen and t3 and caffeine, helios and something else I can't remember. All I did was drink a shit ton of water and sit around. I never found any of these extensive preparations and supplement stacks necessary at all. DNP works. Pretty much no matter what you do it works. You're not gonna take DNP and go do 700lb squats. You'll be so damn lethargic you won't have a chance to cramp up anyway.

I respect that these "formulas" come from guys much older and potentially wiser than me, but I think its a bit much. Kinda almost the same as the screaming "DNP WILL KILL US ALL" crowd.

Just my .02

I think the Pyruvate and GLycerol is a must but the rest is not really necessary, I guess it's how important you feel your antioxidants are.

T-3 help with energy at all? What dose?
t3 at 50mcg and then dropped to 25mcg... Made me feel like death. It was awful. Bearable with the clen at 80mcg t3 at 50mcg. But T3 makes me feel awful on its own anyway. Terrible anxiety and just kinda run down feeling.

Now DNP with an E/C stack I do recommend. Not necessary, but it helps get you thru the work day.

I'm about to run T3 next POB, maybe I should start at 25mcg?

Never use DNP before a show, you will bloat up......

^This. You need at least 4-5 days to shed the DNP induced water retention. If you were gonna use it pre-show I'd be off by 1wk out at least.
