How much of this is fact or fiction?
This is taken from a site I won't name because they sell supplements:
You just slept 8 hours (well most of you), thus you wake up catabolic. AHHHHHH! The
first thing you want to do is drink water. Hydrate the body. If you want to stay lean
and hard you want to make breakfast your biggest meal. I work 8 hours a day. I like
to talk reality. I don't talk like you don't have a job and all you do is sit home all day.
Thus make breakfast your biggest meal because youâ??re about to put the body through
Everyone knows how to eat good. So whatever to that. But if you don't eat good make
yourself a good blender shake with fruit in it and some low G.I. carbs. Add some
dietary fat too.
Here is what your breakfast BLENDER shake should look like. You can also find a ton of
recipes on the internet. Just Google â??Whey Protein Shake Recipesâ??.
Put This in A Blender:
1. 16oz. of milk
Better: Lactaid milk (lactose free milk)
2. 1/3 cup of protein powder.
Better: Protein blend of whey, casein, and egg white
What not to use: Whey protein concentrate. Too much lactose and youâ??ll be farting
on your co-workers all day long, no one wants that?
3. 1 fruit of choice
Better: I like fruits with lots of anti-oxidants.
Blueberries and strawberries rock!
4. 1/3 cup of Oats.
Better: Blend of powdered natural carbohydrates
What not to use: (unless you want to get fat) maltodextrin, fructose, dextrose, waxy
maize, and glucose.
5. 2 tbs of flax oil
Better: A blend of dietary fat oils
What not to use. Fish Oil capsules. These capsules give you a max of 1 gram per
capsule. Youâ??d have to swallow at least 14 in a serving.
Supplements To Take:
1) CLA gel capsules. Take 1 with each meal. Only use Tonalin or Clarinol
2) Krill Oil. Unbelievable high quality dietary fat
3) Testosterone supplement. (Iâ??ll give you some that I like alot)
What testosterone supplements NOT to use:
1) Prohormones. Dangerous products, all made in China, and all illegal sold by
supplement companies trying to profit off playing russian roulette with your health.
2) ZMA. complete garbage with its claim that it can raise testosterone.
3) Boron. Again completely worthless to boost test.
4) D-aspartic acid. They thought this product would work, but it doesnt.
The worst trend to hit the bodybuilding supplement scene is the preworkout powders
containing stimulants. Why you would want to put your body into a catabolic state is
Caffeine also dehydrates you. Why would you want to dehydrate yourself
while working out?
For pre workout I suggest one thing, WATER. Your body will love you for it.
On a side note, just because I like to make my competition look like fools because they
claim to be so cutting edge and great. The first pre workout powder was called
â??Ultimate Orangeâ?? and was invented by Dan Duchaine, the greatest supplement guru
ever to live. But he was at least smart enough to add carbs and hydrolyzed whey
protein into the ephedra containing drink. 15 years or so later the pre workout drink
was reborn, but this time containing no protein and carbs, just DMAA (an illegal
substance) with flavoring.
Here is an advertisement from about 15 years ago for Ultimate Orange, the original pre
Nothing is needed during your workout either but water. You could if you wanted drink
a carb drink. But really if you are bodybuidling then your workout shouldn't take more
than 45 minutes. If you can go longer than 45 minutes than you are not really training
What not to use: amino acids. I see a lot of people swallowing amino acids pills or
powders preworkout. This does absolutely nothing to bring your body out of a catabolic
state. If anything your body converts the aminos to glycogen to give it more energy.
If someone asked me when should I use this protein powder, the first thing I would say
to him is, â??Post workout definitelyâ??. The body is craving nutrients post workout. Four
things: carbs, protein, anti-oxidants, and electrolytes. This is what the body wants and
needs for recovery. Believe it or not chocolate milk has these four things. And if you
talk to university athletic directors and trainers they will tell you that they recommend
their athletes drink chocolate milk post training. However you can get yourself more
more POWERFUL...haha! had to throw that in....products. Here they are.
Carbs: Anything natural. fruit, such a banana.
â?¢ What not to use. Anything un-natural. I consider dextrose, maltodextrin, waxy
maize, and fructose all un-natural. They are such crap, cheap by-products of the
corn industry. All they do is make you fat.
Protein: Hydrolyzed Protein combined with other protein sources. Make sure you
know the molecular weight of the hydrolyzed protein and then combine with egg whites
and milk proteins.
Anti-oxidants: Fresh fruit or supplements
â?¢ What not to use: Anything with caffeine or any stimulants. We are trying to
Night time supplementation:
Right before you go to bed its a good idea to swig down some protein. Mainly in the
form of milk protein isolate blended with whey and egg white. Add about 2 tbs of flax
oil and more testosterone supplements and you are good to go.
We loaded your body up with potential
anabolic substances and try to avoid catabolic substances.
Other tips to avoid catabolism
â?¢ Avoid all form of caffeine
â?¢ Avoid all forms of soy including soy lecithin
â?¢ Avoid pain killers like aspirin, ibuprofin, etc.
â?¢ Avoid stevia. I have seen studies where stevia could increase estrogen
â?¢ As said before, do your best to avoid mental stress
Listen to this routine, print it, post it!
It is real. It will work.
(and fellow muscle builder)
1- Can caffeine cause catabolism?
2- Is Maltodextrin/dextrose/waxy maize bad for you and really make you fat?
3- Do you really need to take 14 fish oil pills for one serving? (I take 2 with each meal x6 times a day)
4- Are Aminos useless pre workout?
5- Is soy lecithin that bad for you? (it's in alot of products)
6- Does stevia increase estrogen?
Does anybody have any info to back up or deny these claims? Please HELP! I realize this guys trying to sell products, but I would like to know if he's preaching the truth or not?
