As the title says, I have always wanted to incorporate a low dose of insulin for my post workout meals. Here is what I have in mind. I was thinking about using 2-3IU's at a 1:17 ratio which makes it a total of 50g of carbs per postworkout meal + 100g protein (whey and some hard boiled eggs/chicken). I intend to jab a few minutes prior to having my post workout meal in the afternoon.
Humalog will be the insulin of choice, therefore I expect it to peak in the ~2 hour mark. A second protein shake will be taken at this point.Metformin will be taken on the second half of the day along with the pre-sleep meal to restore insulin sensitivity.
I have to clarify I do not want to use insulin to get bigger. I want to utilize it purely for a faster recovery!
At a first look utilizing this method should (based on what I have read):
-Avoid going into a hypoglycemic state.
-Avoid any excess fat stored (given that a very low amount of fats are consumed and carbs are limited to the same fixed amount every time).
-Potentially faster recovery (therefore having the opportunity to train the same body part as soon as the 48 hour mark).
But then again this is guesswork from what I have read and I would like people to contribute comments based on their experience. Is it a bad idea? Ineffective? Potentially good idea? Go hard or go home? I am all ears guys.
