    Thanks for the input.
    Depends on the size of the box... The smaller boxes like Versa-1 shipment come in is USPS and that takes about 3-5 days. The larger packages from promos I've won came ups and those were delivered in about 3 days. So it really depends how they chose to ship it.


  2. Thanks gents.

  3. Depends on when the request processes. Transit time is usually 2-4 days in continental US. I consider it a treat when it arrives. When the package arrives, it is a happy surprise. Afterall, they are free !!!

    The sugar rush is actually a misnomer created over the years by caffeinated sodas high in sugar. Sugar actually causes a spike in insulinogenesis and inhibition of counter-regulatory hormones, which physiologically causes the exact opposite of a rush.

    sugar rush is actually a misnomer created by caffeinated sodas. sugar promotes insulinogenesis and kills the sympathetic response (which should cause a rush)
    so sugar actually causes an anti-rush

I thought with the majority of the carbs coming from fiber and not sugar, that I would avoid the spike in insulin. I guess I was wrong. Oh well, live and learn right?. I don't want to be knocked out of ketosis and not sure if eating that one chocolate chip cookie dough quest bar did that or not. To be safe, or maybe because I'm a bit anal when it comes to low carb I will be extending my time by 18 days on low carb before I have my first carb up. I still love quest bars. Just don't trust eating them when I'm trying to stay in ketosis.
    Knocked out of ketosis. Man, I need to do more research. So, it is built up over a certain period? How often are your carb refeeds?

    If you're interested in keto diets and want a good all-in-one book, yes. It covers all of the basic info and does a good job putting things into an easily understandable format. I have a pdf of it if you want to have a look. Just send me a PM.

    From what I understand and from when I did a keto diet last summer, it usually takes a solid 3-4 days to reach ketosis if you are also doing some cardio along w your weights and really going keto- as in ZERO CARBS- no veggies, lettuce, artificial sweeteners, trace carbs in protein powders, etc...
    When I did keto, all I ate was eggs and meats and the occasional shot of heavy cream... I didn't have any salad or fibrous veggies like some keto diets say to. Then once every 5th or 6th day I would have a carb MEAL not day, meal. With no more than 50 grams... I dropped significant bf in 3 weeks time, after Which my stomach was just torn apart by the acidity and I started looking and feeling like crap, so I slowly added in fruits n veggies

    Point being- took me ~72 hours to reach ketosis and I was using my gda for meals as well

Mauro DiPasquale introduced this diet back in the early 1990's when it was called "The Anabolic Diet". Since then it's been refined into the Metabolic Diet. Supposedly there is a second edition coming out soon but I haven't seen anything new or any updates on any of his sites. The diet itself is variable in the amount of carbohydrates you can eat, so it's ok for people who can't handle strictly low carb diets. It can help teach you how to find your "Carbohydrate Set point". Guidelines for the phase that I'm in now are Fat-50-60% of caloric intake, Protein- 30-40% of caloric intake and Carbohydrate 30 grams or less(4-10%). The assessment adaption phase can be anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks long. I've decided to go 5 weeks this time around. I've only been off the diet maybe 3 times since 2003. Every-time I do go off for whatever reason I feel like crap. Eating this way is more of a lifestyle for me and not just a temporary thing. I wouldn't follow any other plan because this is what has worked for me for the past 10 years. If I ever have any questions, I just look them up in the book/books that I have from Mauro or I have emailed him before. When I first started I was able to call him up by phone and he actually called me back personally with straight answers to my questions about the diet. I don't like getting information from 3rd party sources, I like going straight to the horses mouth so to speak.
    Very cool.. I used to have great results recomping on 30-50g carbs, moderate fat and high protein. I have been experimenting w much higher than average carb amounts since October.. Gained ~12 to 15 quality pounds while maintaining or losing bf during the entire process. I can't wait to start cutting (with versa1!) in April and reduce my carbs then carb cycle then go keto for the finishing touches for summer!

    Versa is awesome for cutting. I didnt cut when I beta tested it but I notice a lot of appetite suppression. It was hard for me to get all my calories in without forcefully shoveling food into my system lol.
    GAINZZZ....

    Lyle knows his information better than most out there. LOL to say "Not interested in his work" To each his own though, if you are going to negate a great resource that is full of information and pub med studies, then so be it.. to be ignorant to someone who studies this for their life thats great, but if you arent going to run keto by nature (As t-bone is not) and kind of modifying it by throwing in sources like quest bars, it will treally through off your perception of true keto and reaching ketosis by the limitations most follow on the diet, but then again its his diet and what he wants to do, if he gets results that is whta matters.

    Well, T bone has a point. Lyle attributes the roots and the early research to Mauro Dipasquale, even says so in his book. They spout the same info, which is legit.

    I am going to finish reading this book and hopefully have aome success with the method. I am just worried that it may mess with my energy when I go back to work this week. Wonder if the diet could be utilized during a leangains IF protocol?

    Yeah. I had a bit of an unplanned carb up Friday morning. I was so friggin hungry. I didn't make it to my feeding window that day, 30 or so minutes shy. But, I stayed within my cal's for the day.

    I bet it would work, any diet would work with IF, IF is just a lifestyle diet its used as a personal preference to adjust to your lifestyle to eating in a smaller window. You could do a bulk, cut on IF, just depends on your intake and how you handle larger meals.

    " Lyle attributes the roots and the early research to Mauro Dipasquale, even says so in his book. They spout the same info, which is legit.

    ^^ Thats why i said the information is very well written because he added his research + those of others, The reason its 200 pages is because it has a ton of great information not only on Keto, but also what Keto can do to the body, and what its benefits/negatives can also supply as well.

    I guess suggesting a book is "Ignorant" towards a keto diet. But like i said if you find an alternative and you prefer it by all means rock it out, Keto is going to vary depending on a TKD/CKD etc, so you could put a twist on it but in the end if you get results. Rock it out. Research which has been done is a learning tool to why people study it and what the benefits can offer with their time in the lab/research on given diets and how they can vary from individual to individual given their goal and how they respond to different macronutrients

    You dont need BCAA's during your fast, even martin says to keep them just for pre-workout if you use it for fasted training (10g BCAA prior) other than that during the fast just water, diet soda, coffee etc...

    "Training is initiated on an empty stomach and after ingestion of 10 g BCAA or similar amino acid mixture. This "pre-workout" meal is not counted towards the feeding phase. Technically, training is not completely fasted - that would be detrimental. The pre-workout protein intake, with its stimulatory effect on protein synthesis and metabolism, is a crucial compromise to optimize results. The 8-hour feeding phase starts with the post-workout meal."

    ****** No calories are to be ingested during the fasted phase, though coffee, calorie free sweeteners, diet soda and sugar free gum are ok (even though they might contain trace amount of calories). A tiny splash of milk in your coffee won’t affect anything either (-1 teaspoon of milk per cup at the most - use sparingly and sensibly if you drink a lot of coffee). Neither will sugar free gum in moderation (~20 g).***

    People sometimes ask me which protocol is best. I tend to look at things from a behavioral perspective first and foremost, so my reply to that is to choose the protocol best suited to your daily routine and training preferences. When dealing with clients I make the choice for them. If you work a 9-5 job and your only option is to train after work, training fasted is generally a bad idea and I always choose the one or two meals pre-workout protocol.

    ^^ From Martin's site and the leangains guide, i think the BCAA during the fast would illicit a protein response of BCAA's instantly entering the system not really making it a fasting period, the reason for the BCAA prior to workout on a fasted state it because you have had no food for quite some time so training after 14-16 hours or so of fasting would not be "Optimal" to his standards, but that would have to be something addressed to him via an email for a further response IMO. Just a generic stab at what he may have to say.

    Doesn't Martin also say 10g BCAA's every 2 hours until feed?
    Example: workout at 0600- 10g pre wo, then 10g at 0800, 10g at 1000, and 10g at 1200 for a feeding window that begins at 1400.
    Seems like a lot of BCAA's.

    i have been debating on making my window like 9-1500 or something so I can eat sooner after my workout.

  29. I actually don't use bcaa during my fast

    Or pre workout :/

    I still make gains and increase my strength.. But I often wonder if not ingesting bcaa PRE is lessening my results and performance from maximal...

    I would think that it might be. NP has a kilo of bulk modern bcaa's for cheap right now.
