Not only is it catabolic but it stimulates the appetite to levels I never knew existed. I could eat 3x the size of a normal meal and not feel full. In fact there were times it felt like the food was coming up to my throat yet my hunger wasn't satisfied. I basically binged at all times and it was uncontrollable, all I could think about was my next meal. After 2 months I finally was able to taper off of it and I hope to new touch the shit again.
