Since I began taking t3, I've avoided the midnight urges to eat.. And if I do, it is usually some heated-over chicken breast...

The other night I ate a cup of oatmeal in the middle of the night and went back to bed. I woke up with my sheets drenched in sweat--- an experience reminiscent of my DNP days.

Anyone notice this while on T3?-- When an excess of carbs are consumed, feeling heat and perspiring? This is one thing that happens on DNP.. Carbs are metabolized so much quicker than lipids, their liberated electrons are readily run through the transport chain. Meanwhile, uncoupling dissipates this gradient, the excess energy thrown off as heat. DNP no doubt works this way. T3 likely also works, at least in part, by uncoupling respiration. When on DNP, as long as the carbs are kept low, many of the symptoms (lethargy, perspiration, uncomfortable heat) can be minimized. I imagine this is also the case with T3.

Aside, I vaguely recall reading that T3 increases resting energy expenditure by about 15%.. Anyone have any other number in mind?

when do you take your T3?
I take mine in the am and have never experienced what you describe.

I would expect the margin by which energy expenditure is increased is dose dependant.

T3 is best taken 'round the clock... This is not the case for t4, which can be taken all at once.

interesting remark andy; could you please elaborate more on that please? i'm new to this board and from the dutch boards i visit the general consensus seems to be to take all T3 in a single dose on an empty stomach (in the morning).

i'm currently on a sust,bold,para,T3 cycle so more info on the T3 dosing regime would be very nice

Simple.
T3 is, by far, more active than t4. T3 is made from t4, so when you take t4, it has all day to convert to T3, and it does so gradually, giving you a steady stream of T3. T3, on the other hand, is much shorter lived than t4, (i.e., shorter half life), so you need to take it in multiple (at least 3) doses in order to obtain quasi-stable blood levels of the hormone.
