    Glycobol problem


    So I took my first dosing yesterday of glycobol.

    Meal consisted of approx-

    8 ounces Ribeye Steak
    1 cup spinach
    1 cup brown rice -- upped it a bit over 1 cup to get 50g carbs into me.

    Anyways, I ate that meal at about 2:30, and got home around 8:45, and proceeded to make numerous trips to the bathroom for the rest of the night. Should I lower my dose or ? I dosed it at 2 caps.

    The same thing happened to me the first few times I used Glycobol. It seems your body adjusts, SURPRISE!, homeostasis. However it will always happen to me when I take Anabolic Pump. Can't figure that one out.

    What was the time between the meal and dosing?

    Timing was about 25-30 mins, I tried my best to let it at least breakdown in my stomach before I touched any food. I'm going to give it another go today and let you guys know.

    Take less time between dosing and eating. I like to take a dose w/ 8 oz of water ~10-15 minutes before eating. I've also noticed that higher fat meals (25-30g) can exacerbate this problem for some people.

    Yeah, theres alot of fat in the steak, but on bigger workload days, like yesterdays deadlifts/rows, I like to eat a nice piece of meat as my post-post workout nutrition.

    I completely understand and come from a similar school of thought. I was just throwing out an observation.

    I had the same problem with the timing from dose to timing of meal.

    However it was solved by extending the time of 30 minutes, to roughly around 45 minutes before eating.

    You can try to cut the time to 15 minutes as suggested, or try my method.

    Good luck.

    Heres what worked for me.

    Start with 1 cap of glycobol like the bottle states. Do this for at least a day. Then increase to 1 cap twice a day. For at least a 3-4 days. Then slowly introduce the 2 and 2 protocol.

    Also start at the low end of the dosage timing. Like start with 10 minutes before carb meal. Then add time slowly.

    Slowly increase time in between glycobol and carb meal. When bulking the directions state to take with meal, with more carbs. When cutting take 30 minutes prior with less carbs. ( I never waited that long, 15-20 minutes or sooner worked for me.)

    Make sure to get at least 50 grams of carbs. 60 or more is better.

    1 and 1 seemed to work good for me.

    Yeah but I'm cutting right now and I generally try to avoid more than 100-120g carbs a day. I was just going to place these with those meals. Hopefully I have no other problems going forward, kinda reminds me of what berberine did to me, in yellow gold.

    They're in there, they're the two glycobol meals I'm eating now a day, pre/post workout or earlier in the day during cardio days.

    You hit this spot on for me Rodja. I've found that ~20 minutes pre-meal works best for me and fatty meals definitely make give me "issues".

    Brook, Crowler suggests starting off with 1 one capsule at a time for the first few days and then moving up to two if no problems occur. Some people even wait a fews after their initial issue before starting to dose again.

    Well nothing explosive out of me so far, and I had my first dose around 12 today. I'm timing it closer to 15 mins after taking the dose. Noting a bit more fullness. Thing I noticed the most with yesterday was I was getting alot of undigested greens coming out. Like I could see chunks of spinach lol. Definitely think I'm digesting properly now.

    Nevermind, problems back again. I'm going to take a day off tomorrow from it and then try it on a single cap at breakfast with oats after that.

    That sounds like a good plan. Do 1 cap at breakfast for a couple of days if it goes well then 1 cap twice a day for a couple of days. If there are no problems after a couple of day then you can start to bump up slowly. If you are still having problems at low dose it could be that it does not agree with you. Good luck and let us know.

    Yeah that was the plan. It sucks because I saw like a 2 pound drop in 2 days because of all the toilet action. I'm trying to cut but not that fast.

    1 cap twice a day may solve the problem. Glycobol is some potent stuff.

    I take mine right before I start eating the meal. I do not wait 10-30 minutes. It has never given me any issues

    Yup the green poop effect is fairly common but usually goes away during the cycle.

    I take it before breakfast.

    I take it AFTER my mid evening carb meal. This method actually seems to have a better effect at bringing my bg levels back dow.

    With the breakfast meal, it seems to help keep it (BG) stabilized and not bloat me.

    You can borrow my method, if you'd like

    It's pretty crazy how differently things effect different people.

    I seem to have my best results by dosing based off of the amount of carbs I'm eating, waiting no more than 20 minutes to eat, and keeping the fats low.

    It took me a little bit of playing around to find this out, but it was worth it.

    It does seem that the timing plays a big part what is good for someone is not good for everyone that is why I suggest starting with 1 pill twice a day and bump slowly so you can get your best dosage and timing.

    I wonder how many people use it on cycle??? I haven't done enough cycles to be able to compare with and without. That would be an interesting idea for somebody that could compare the two scenarios though.

    glycobol plus a ph that boosts glut4 like The One is supposed to do, would be nice.

    I may have to give it a shot my next go-round, possibly The One + tren (xtren or trenadrol, I know they're not the same) + glycobol + lotsa carbs

    Please excuse my ignorance. I'm cutting right now. DCP/Leviathan, r-ala, chromium picolinate, quadracarn, cla, nutrasea. How does glycobol help one who is dieting down. Does it help process low and high glycemic carbs, so they aren't stored as fat. Keeps your blood/glucose even level. Without spiking? Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm very curious about this product. Could it help my dieting/cutting? Thanx in advance.

    It can for sure be used on a cut it will help keep muscle. People have actually done blood/glucose testing while on it and were very happy with the results. If you decide to use the product start slowly do not go with the 2 cap twice a day before a carb containg meal. For some 1 is plenty.

    When cutting, I usually employ some type of CKD diet with a weekly carb load. I don't use Glycobol during my low-cal/low-carb days because I don't approach anywhere near 50g of carbs total on these days. For my carb load however, I'll take one or two Glycobol prior to each of my meals which contain between 75 - 100g of carbs. I've found it extremely useful to ensure glycogen supercompensation is achieved during my carb loads.

    Great feedback/suggestions Ninjo!

    I've found that I can use Glycobol even when intaking below 40g-50g of carbs BUT I will only use ONE Glycobol for these sorts of meals/snacks.

    I have the link to Vaughns Glycobol log with blood/glucose reading PM me if you want the link. I will copy and paste some stuff.


    ok guys here are my blood results from today:


    post pre-wo meal: 118
    post workout(sipping on maximize): 115
    20 minutes post Glycobol: 86



    2 pills of Glycobol = ABOUT 5iu of insulin imo.



    [ok guys...


    my dosing has been consistant and I've had some awesome gym sessions this past week. i worked myself SO hard last thursday/friday/saturday though that I definitely need sunday + today off in order to recuperate.



    My weight is a constant 230(started dieting at 240), however I am significantly leaner from last week. Maybe this means I gained a lean 1-2lbs lbm since I started glycobol.



    Glycobol is definitely speeding up my cut. No questions asked. This is going to be a cutting staple from here on out!


    Final Review:


    Overall, this product is the bee's knees. It significantly lowered my blood sugar levels when tested with a glucosemeter, and it made me feel as it I had injected a small/moderate amount of insulin.


    Fat loss: 9/10 - I noticed an awesome leaning out while on this product...and my diet was pretty ****ty!

    Strength Gain: 5/10 - Nothing intense, for me anyway

    Working as claimed: 20/10 - not one exaggeration. this stuff works.







    I will be using this almost year round from now on I believe. A+ AI!
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.
