That looks great and anything poliquin recomends is golden! What if banaba was added to it????
yeah, I think banaba would be really beneficial for this. By the way, did you make the purchase, if so, how's it going
I have been using this supplement for 3 weeks. I lowered my carbs, basically it has been meat and veggies as far as diet. Even pre and post workout I cut out the carbs. I eat 1 cup of cooked oats in the morning and a banana and that is the most carbs I have in a day. My energy has gone down, more like hypoglycemic, I am flat most of the time.
However, this is what is expected. My body is adapting to having a lower glycogen levels. I am visibly leaner I mean big time. I am vascular all the time even though I don't get a pump. I contribute alot to the loss of glycogen and water retention that comes with the glycogen. I am seeing striations in the upper chest, front delts, and also some of the tricept. I have 3 more weeks to go, and then I will switch back to a high carb, bulking type plan, by that time I should respond very well with carbs.
I took the above dose three times per day after my meals. First at 8am second at 1pm and third at 8pm.

vanadyl would be a cheap addition as well as banaba.
