Hey guys, I'm a 17 y/o type 1 diabetic, been training for about 6 months, I have noticed changes in my muscles in terms of strength and detail but no real mass gains, I am eating 3000-3200 calories a day mostly consisting of Beans, Tuna, Chicken, Oats, Wholemeal Pasta, Brown rice, Cottage Cheese and Protein shakes, I am 5'11 and weigh 70kg, so my question is are there any type 1 diabetics out there who actually have success with bodybuilding? If there are I have a few questions for you.
- Do you take Insulin after a workout and consume a high carb meal/shake?
- Do you take Insulin with every meal?
- I know Insulin is anabolic, how can i use this to my advantage?
