I have read all the threads from CT regarding the nutrition protocols and it all seems to make great sense. However, for many of us, finances can be an issue and we can't spend what some others may have the luxury of spending.
I am curious to see what others are doing. People that are familiar with the science behind the protocols but have to try to accomplish them by different means. By different means I mean solid food and whey. Is there something or a combination of things that you are taking pre and during your workouts that you have had good success with. What are you using to spike the insulin levels towards the middle to back half of your workout and how much protein are you ingesting at that time.
I don't care about what supplements you are taking i.e. SuperPump250, NO-Explode, etc., unless its something like waxy maize or bcaas.
Trying to find what people have found to be the best combination's and timing as they try to replicate the protocols.
