Meat072, r-ALA is worth reading up on. Plenty of info on the T-forums if you use the search engine.

As a glucose disposal agent, you would use it 15-20 minutes before any carb containing meal. 100mg of r-ALA per 30-50g of carbs ought to get you good results.

Just a quick comment, nothing wrong with fruit, but the carb-sugars in it do not preferentially refill muscle glycogen, the purpose for taking in carbs in the first place. Try taking in more starchy carbs and less fruit-type carbs when bulking.

Good luck on your bulking cycle!!
