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.

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 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.

Two caps, and I've eaten both of my higher carb meals today with two caps and so far no problems, besides alot of pretty much odorless gas. Lets hope I make it through the night without a problem haha.

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.

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.

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

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
