The sympathetic state, steroids, and a colossal camera crash take center stage in this week’s episode… During use of performance enhancing drugs, there are quite often changes in certain markers indicating an elevated sympathetic state. This creates an interesting correlation in regards to the sympathetic state as a possibly necessary environment for muscle gain and fat loss.. So maybe it’s not just a side effect, maybe it’s the requirement for gaining good, lean muscle? We speculate wildly on this episode as we reflect back on some of the correlations between what we’ve discussed about the Melanocortin Axis and it’s relationship to fat loss/gain regardless of caloric intake..
