    Post workout is a waste. I won't dose post. Maybe after post workout meal.

    I will be the rebel and advise against this, or any GDA, in the workout timeframe.

    It will be counterproductive for hypertrophy, as well as being wasted somewhat as it is designed to mimic the post exercise state you should already be in. (Insulin blunted, GLUT4 at cell membrane, etc.)

    I would use it with an alternate meal, or the pre-workout meal if it is distanced enough from your workout

    Idk I remember Dsade saying it will not inhibit calories absorbed, but rather alter how they are utilized ..

    So more calories + less fat storage = more muscle gains ?...

    Maybe @dsade will chime in

    But from my knowledge, irregardless of the other effects, mimickers like this or any GDA will inhibit the benefits of having just worked out.

    Carb/fat blockers are never really ideal when post workout and trying to store energy either

    There are also some potent antioxidants used in the formula, which we know aren't ideal in the workout timeframe

    Thanks fellas, had a feeling the nature of this product would mean post workout use would either hinder gains and/or mean I wasn't getting the full benefit of this stuff. Appreciate the help!

    The function of Defuse is really unique. It is NOT a carb/fat blocker, nor is its primary focus a GDA. Defuse's prime directive is to disable fat storage enzymes, leaving free fatty acids and carbs circulating in the bloodstream and giving your body more time to burn it off as fuel. While it does have some effects on disposal, it will help a bit if your workouts are designed to deplete glycogen - but unless you have having a grandaddy of meals (1400calories>) postworkout, I would save full dose defuse for times that you do.

    That said, we have gotten incredible feedback from dosing the product at 1-2 caps twice a day. This results in a downgrade of fat storage enzymes, without completely blunting them - aiding in fat loss.

    Interesting, I think I'll experiment with this when my BMP log is done then. I am currently carb cycling and only eating a lot of carbs in my post workout meals on my lifting days. I actually do an intermittent fasting schedule so I am eating the vast majority of my calories in the four hours or so postworkout.

    Matt, I know you don't recommend using this indefinitely - would dosing only 4x a week be okay? With 3 days a week with no Defuse?

    I was wondering the same thing. Can Defuse be used indefinitely if used every other day? Or maybe for 7 weeks like this, then a week off?

    It's possible to use it regularly at a lower dose. Generally the body does not tolerate screwing with its systems for too long, and tends to compensate accordingly - probably leading to a much more amplified fat storage functioning. That's why this is recommended for short bursts only.

    I know I basically just use it if I'm gonna have a VERY large meal. So I've used it twice in the past 2 days and maybe 3 times in the past 2 months. I'll let Matt answer for sure, but I'm pretty sure once a week you're good.

    I would think it's fine. Being used everyday is where your body starts to compensate. Used here and there should be fine.

    But I'll let the BOSS answer this

    Is using defuse for a REFEED a bad idea? If I want to shock my body, wouldn't using defuse kind of negate the whole purpose? Not a cheat meal, a much needed refeed to get metabolism fired up again. Or would i be better served sticking w the low carbing and just using the epitome?

    Not at all. You will maximize your refeed effectiveness (Stacked with Slintensity) while making sure that your body has ample time to burn off the fatty acids before they get stored. Signaling pathways are still going to be activated, accomplishing the goals of the refeed.

    Yep...once a week is fine. In a longer term situation you are looking at basically a mean level of fat storage efficiency. By knocking out that efficiency one day a a week, without your body "sensing" and overcompensating, you've lowered the overall mean efficiency.

    Or tomorrow on my off day from training(as a carb backload) and train fasted Monday.

    To the point of lethargy, little to no muscle tone, and just soft and puffy. I've tried refeeding w a carb meal once a week but it clearly hasn't been enough. Been training very hard for an upcoming sporting event.

    My last few refeeds have been minimally effective due to appetite suppression, but that's usually my guide.

    Judge that by your fat loss pace and if you are where you want to be physique wise.

    Honestly carb cycling worked best for me for quite some time then I cut the carbs and saw dramatic results which seem to have almlst been "reversed" body comp wise.

    What do you mean reversed? You cut carbs and your body composition got worse?
