I visited a trainer listed on Poliquin’s site for biosignature modulation. My scores were as follows:
Mid Axil 13.5
Supra Illiac 19.2
% fat 18.7
He said I was a “cortisol/insulin-guy” and recommended the following:
BioDetox Packs 1 pack 2x/day
GLA 1 cap 2x/day
ADHS 2 caps 2x/day
B-Supreme 1 cap 3x/day
Panetheine Supreme 1 cap 3x/day
Does this seem right because it’s nothing like the insulin resistant (which he said I was) protocol that Poliquin put you on. I’m guessing everyone has different needs but I’d really appreciate your insight.
Your problem is mostly cortisol. Your insulin management doesn’t seem to be that bad. But a higher supra-iliac than subscapular tells me that you might be ingesting too much carbs for what your body needs.
However your subscap doesn’t indicate genetic carbs intolerance as it is not drastically higher than other sites.
My recommendations would obviously depend on many questions I would ask (mostly regarding sleeping patterns and daily energy level fluctuations) but cortisol modulation would be my main concern.
I don’t see an immediate need for insulin-modulating supplements; I would simply focus on not ingesting carbs except for the peri-workout period.[/quote]
Thanks coach, feel free to ask away. If you do an email consultation, I’d be interested. BTW, I’ve low-carbing for weeks now. I love it!
