I will start this week with taking BCAA.tsp olive oil and some whey isolate POW. The only time i didn’t was in the start-up phase.I too read a lot about Pre and or Pri workout, but i think that is just messing too much with the whole way of using fat as energy. The only reason i’ll take my shake POW is stopping the catabolic effect. Looking into making my carb days/day less and maybe i’ll try the carb-backloading in 2 3 months.[/quote]
Sounds good mate
I will most likely start using some sort of protein blend PWO and bcaa’s intra when im down sub 10%BF,
I am cutting on about 1800 cals, fats around 70%, Pro 25% and in around 11%BF atm.
My question is that ive read and heard many including doc mauro dipasquale (author of the AD) advise to avoid carbs pre, post workout, and for as long after as possible afterwards (not including post depletion workout).
Due to free form amino acids and WPI etc being very fast digesting, would this cause insulin to rise from protein converting into glucose (gluconeogenesis), and does adding fats slow such as fish oil, heavy cream olive oil and such slow this process down and blunt the rise in blood glucose, or is it better just to stick to my whole foods like chicken breast and eggs PWO like i have been doing?
Any help appreciated thanks![/quote]
That is what i’ve heard and read.
Dr Mauro even has his own protein supplement to take POW With slow and fast proteins.
I think you should avoid carbs after workout or at least minimize them and just focus on a good shake with water and some olive oil. The olive oil would protect the protein. After an hour eat a normal meal with the normal AD ratios.PRI or PRE carbs,protein,Bcaa’s personaly i’m not doing it. I gues You can always experiments with it. Christian thibeau advised to take the Whey isolate,water.
Bcaa’s To get a insulin spike that won’t last that long anyways but will help you to stay or return in a Anabolic state? Plus I’m also looking into staying alkaline lol! WTF THIS DIET IS GREAT BUT WHAT A LOAD OF INFO!! Now i’m reading more and more about being in a Metabolic acidosis state. WTF!
So people advise to eat more alkaline food and or ad Baking soda* (to much sodium is never good right?) to some water and drink it before your meals…CRAZY!!!PLus i have this sting in my head for the last days keeps coming and going and can’t figure out what i am missing or taking to much…
