Clenbuterol is not a steroid, but it’s still extremely popular in the bodybuilding community. It might be less powerful than injectable Testosterone, but Clenbuterol Canada has a different purpose: it will make you lean, help you lose weight, and make your overall appearance as shredded as it can possibly be.

What is Clenbuterol
In short, Clenbuterol is a drug used in medicine to treat bronchial asthma. However, it has more to give you: Clen can be compared in effect to steroids. Like a combination of injectable Winstrol and Oxandrolone, it promotes slight muscle gains, which are complemented by some strength gain. All thanks to the anti-catabolic processes it triggers.
Its unique effect is fat destruction. No, we won’t call it “enhanced fat loss”, “improved metabolism”, or whatever else: it’s pure fat destruction.
How Clenbuterol Weight Loss Works
Might be a little complicated, but this is the mechanism of action:
- As a beta-2 agonist, clenbuterol binds to type 2 beta receptors in the fat and muscle tissue of the human body.
- When clenbuterol binds to the receptor, a cascade of biochemical reactions is triggered;
- It leads to an increase in the synthesis of cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate);
- cAMP, in turn, activates enzymes that mobilize fatty acids from adipocytes (adipose tissue cells).
The result is — your fat tissue starts to disappear. Not a cartoonish “melting” effect, but you’ll definitely notice the results in your mirror shortly after the start of the cycle.
Clenbuterol Cycle Secrets
Even though you can buy it in a regular pharmacy (with a prescription), Clenbuterol used for bodybuilding purposes has some minor, yet important differences. Here are the secrets you won’t find in the official instruction:
Find the Right Dosage
In men, the recommended dose of clenbuterol for drying and losing weight is 120 – 140mcg per day. In women, the average dose of clenbuterol for losing weight is 80-100mcg per day.
Clenbuterol is not an anabolic steroid, it has 0 androgenic properties, and therefore — it’s safe for female athletes.
Beware of Tolerance
The duration of the clenbuterol cycle is usually 2 weeks, then you’ll almost certainly get receptor tolerance. Effectiveness will inevitably decrease by the end of week 2. You need to take a 2 week break using Ketotifen to get back on the fat-terminating track. Without Ketotifen, the break is useless, and then repeat the course; without ketotifen, the break should be much longer. Here’s a study on Ketotifen and Clenbuterol that explains the whole thing.
You Need the Right Supportive Substances
Don’t forget to take enough protein, BCAAs, and other cortisol blockers throughout your cycle to dramatically improve the results.
While Clenbuterol is totally capable of delivering the results without them, a proper stack with basically harmless compounds will create a notable synergy. It’s especially useful if you don’t want to run a prolonged Clenbuterol cycle.
The Key is Still in the Kitchen
Follow an appropriate weight loss or drying diet. Yes, Clenbuterol Canada will do everything it can to help you lose that excess weight and get a leaner look, but it won’t do EVERYTHING for you.
You still need to:
- Avoid junk food, deep-fried food, trans fats from fast food;
- Maintain a calorie deficit;
- Drink plenty of water;
- Do cardio — a lot of it, and basically stay active.
Also — stay away from alcohol and drugs. Not for weight loss, but because it will put unnecessary extra pressure on your heart and digestive system on the Clenbuterol cycle.
Bad Sleep Regiment Can Ruin Your Clenbuterol Cycle
That’s right — despite all the potency of the compound, something as easy and (unfortunately) common as not getting enough sleep can ruin the whole thing. Healthy sleep is essential for weight loss, and the Clenbuterol Canada cycle is not an exception here.
- When you don’t sleep enough — you eat more “unhealthy” food. It’s proven by multiple studies like this one. Imagine taking all the risks of the Clen cycle and ruining the results with an impulsive sugary snack that you buy simply because you decided to watch that one more series on Netflix.
- Your metabolism is extremely dependent on your sleep regularity and quality. In this study, it’s proven that circadian rhythms imbalance can lead to increased chances of obesity. You need a normal metabolic rate for Clenbuterol to boost it. Intervening in damaged metabolic processes with one more extra thing can be plain dangerous for your health.
Best case scenario — you won’t lose as much fat as you could. Unfortunately, sometimes the consequences can be worse — up to the point of chronic digestive system disorders.
Clenbuterol is not a magic pill that will miraculously help you lose all the weight to the healthy point. If it was — it would cost way, way more. It can. however, be a precise tool at your disposal. Use it as something that will HELP you lose weight, not something that will do it for you by itself.
