Before everyone rolls their eyes and says, “Here we go again”, read on.
For years I worked out for hours and ate clean though without attention to P,F, and C ratios and hardly gained a pound. A couple years back I educated myself on carbs and how insulin spikes are good for packing on the jiggly stuff. I switched to a lower carb diet, shortened the workouts and went heavy. Lo and behold I made some gains.
Having quickly plateau’d I was excited to find T-mag and read all the diet stuff. However ever since I started ‘massive eating’ a couple months back I’ve felt like a bag of crap. Given I’ve taken up coffee to fight the fatigue, go through a gal and half of water a day, and Im needing a new eyewear prescription I thought I should see the doc. Well, looks like I’ve joined the diabetic club at the age of 31.
After the long winded speech my question is that if my condition is controllable through diet and exercise, am I condemned to a life of lifting mediocrity without the use of insulin injections?
