trouble staying lean with Glycobol
lean bulking right now
bodyfat:6.5 to 7%
recently came off precontest diet were i reach 5.5 bodyfat at 170 with sharp detailed abs.
my diet in detail is
breakfast: 3 pancakes, 6-8 eggs, 2 glycobols 30 min before meal
2nd meal: protein shake 48 grams
3rd meal: half pound steak
4th meal: chicken breast
5th meal: protein shake 48 grams
6th meal: 2 or 3 red potatoes, 2 glycobols 30 minutes before meal
7th meal: chicken breast or steak or protein shake
i only have 2 real carb meal so didnt think i would have a problem staying lean or keeping my abs as long as i bulk using this strategy. but since i started using glycobol about 4 days ago, my abs are not as sharp but still visable, but I see them starting to slowly dissapear each day. not really have the repartitioning effect i though it would.
im also taking lean xf which is a cortisol suppression, also a testosterone booster reversitol at night before bed, at Maxout which is an AA product.
what am i doing wrong,
the only thing im expriencing is great pumps and mucle fullness, but not of the repartitioning or leaning out effects

The one thing I can tell you is to eat sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. Also instead of dosing 2 caps with the meals, try 1, it works better for some of my friends who have had bloating issues with glycobol. What type of protein shakes are you using?doing my own thang!

Why dont you eat some greens bro throw down some dark leafy greens and water bearing vegetables. That diet is brutally lopsided and very acidic. Your body will keep fat to help buffer the acids as a survival mechanism. This diet is a short term diet and over long terms can be dangerous in my opinion.

I hope with all that meat you take some serious digestive enzymes and some probiotic cultures. Less is more with supps IMO.

i eat greens all the time, i just didnt feel a need to include them because there empty carbs so i didnt list it in my diet, so there no need to take glycobal with carbs like spinach or salad which are the greens i eat.
to the other guy "gifted" your comment in regards to less is more with the glycobol, i completely agree, but understand i take the supp as the directions states which is 2, what is reconmended.
on the comment in regard to sweat potatoes, i'm not a big fan of sweet potatoes in all honesty i tried it a month ago and couldnt stomach it
i really dont eat regular potatoes, i eat red potatoes which i believe where better then regular protatoes, i though red potatoes did not obsorb as fast a regular potatoes, Red Potatoes are complex carbs like oatmeal and sweet potatoes,
what if i switched to brown rice would that make a difference, i'll try taking 1pill and see how that goes.
also im eat 2 red potatoes, which are small, and my around maybe 25 grams of carbs each even though i think there more around 20 grams of carbs each
any more suggestions would help
as far as my diet is concerned, that diet minus the carbs is what got me to 5% percent bodyfat and i used this diet for about 6 months straight and im very healthy.
this is the same diet ill use to lean bulk just with the added carbs,

The difference between sweet potatoes and regular potatoes is minimal when it comes to GI. Although to this day, everyone thinks otherwise.
As far as white rice compared to brown rice, don't stress over that either. The glycemic index doesn't have to do with the color. It has to do with the size of the grain (long grain, medium grain, short grain). The shorter the grain, the higher the glycemic index due to the increased amylopectin content.

First off, the glycemic index is practically useless unless you're consuming that particular food by itself. You should be thinking in terms of glycemic load. When combining a type of food with another and so on, the GI is void.
As far as white potatoes compared to sweet potatoes, the vitamin and mineral content differ in many ways. However, they're pretty much the same.
As far as rice is concerned, there are certain types of white rice that have a higher GI than certain brown rice. Most white rice is enriched anyways, so vitamins are put back into it. The difference is negligible.
I do think it's a good rule of thumb for lay people to try to stay away from white foods, no doubt.

taking one glycobol has been working alittle better,
also after workout i took 2 today before eating 4 pancakes and 4 eggs so well see how that works out.
didnt have enough time to cook brown rice today but i will tomarrow, i will ditch red potatoes after i cook the rice tomarroe and see what kind of difference it makes.
should i take gylcobol before cardio as well, although im bulking this is an lean bulk so i will try to do 20 minutes of cardio at least 5 times a week.

I am currently using 1 cap at a time, but when I know I will have a meal with higher carb level than I usually am having I will up it to 2. Also, thinking about picking up some of the bulk pslin with the good deal and using that with my pre and post meals.
