DNP – Just How Effective Is It?


A question I’m often asked is if DNP is effective for fat loss? Umm, not only is DNP effective, DNP is probably the only drug that lives up to its hype. I have seen people go from soft to lean in literally 30 days or less.

Careful though. Dosing DNP too high can and will land you in a coffin. A dose of 2-5 mg per kilogram of bodyweight is an effective dose, but because the LD50 and an effective dose are so close to one another, I suggest a dose of no more than 2 mg per kilogram the first time you use DNP. That would be 200 mg per day for a 100 kg bodybuilder. Take DNP once daily in the morning upon wakening.


What drugs are athletes taking to counteract the negative effects of DNP?

Normally, I would advise to minimise the use of ancillary drugs because of the added variables we must then consider if something goes wrong. If something goes wrong and you are taking a cocktail of drugs, it can be hard to pin point the cause. The less drugs we need, the better. Unfortunately, there are times where we may need to add drug B to mitigate the negative effects of drug A because drug A is so effective at doing its thing. DNP is one of those drugs that is extremely effective at doing its thing. Unfortunately, DNP does not come without side effects at even the lowest of doses. The main side effect that debilitates athletes using DNP is fatigue. Fatigue isn’t exactly in line with being an athlete who needs all the energy they can get.


The solution? Micro dosing Modafinil. As little as 25-50 mg per day when needed can be enough to stay focused and get you through your day while DNP literally melts fat off your body.



I spoke about the LD50 in the beginning of this article. The LD50 is an abbreviation for “lethal dose 50.” The LD50 is the estimated dose of a compound that when ingested will kill 50% of the population. The LD50 in humans for caffeine is equivalent to about 150 cups of coffee. That means that if 10 subjects were to ingest 150 cups of coffee in a single sitting, then 5 of them would likely be dead and the other 5 would likely survive. Although 5 of the subjects would survive, they wouldn’t be in very good shape you’d imagine.


The LD50 is important to know if you are a drug using athlete, especially when drugs such as DNP are used, which have a low LD50 compared to the effective dose for desired effects. Does anyone know the LD50 of DNP in humans? Catch my next article where I will disclose just this!
