hey guys, i got the bio-sig done today. It was a very interesting but positive experience that took a little under an hour. I don't have the results yet as he needs to enter them in to the software and email the numbers in spread sheet form to me after, but he explained what each fold meant and which ones were my problem zones (supra iliac for insulin, the hamstring for environmental estrogen and umbilical for stress).
he got me to write out all my supplements and give a basic outline of when and what i eat on a typical day.
t.bruce was right as he suggested that I eliminate the pre-workout carbs and even lower my post-workout carbs by about 30%.
He then gave me a zinc test which indicated that I am zinc deficient and that is robing a bit of my testosterone. After this he gave me some HCL caps to test my HCL levels with my next high-protein meal.
I was happy and impressed that he didn't automatically try to unload a ton of supplements on me, but basically said that switching my udos oil to a high-quality fish oil (which i could buy from him or any where else)would be helpful in improving insulin sensitivity. Really the only supplements he suggested right away were to switch my ZMA to the poliquin brand on zinc and magnesium and depending on my home test with the HCL, possibly adding a HCL supplement.
So overall it was a very positive experience and I learned a lot in just 1 hour and if I want to add these supplements it shouldnt cost me more then $100 a month (some of that will come from the savings from not spending as much on carbs and droping my current ZMA supplement.
he had a few more tips but the ones above were the major ones.
We talked goals and he suggested that if i committed to the changes and continued to train hard, with an increase in test from the zinc and possibly much improved digestion from the HCL, that loosing 6-7lbs of fat and gaining about 5lbs of muscle at the same time would be possible with-in the next 8 weeks.
ill be going back for a follow up visit in about 2 weeks.
