it depends. But today I was energetic until I ate waffles and maple syrup. Then I felt quite sluggish.
I don't like the idea of having to rely on coffee.
Somedays I wil have oatmeal but ti really depends I dont really like to eat first thing, I can stomach liquids, like a shake.

how much sleep do you get?
how much coffee do you drink?
waffles and maple syrup will make you feel that way. food like this will send your blood sugar skyrocketing and then your body will make a ton of insulin to bring it back down which leads to low bloods sugar (no energy) and fat gain. shoot for low glycemic foods in the morning, eggs/bacon/vegetables. stay away from fruit juice they are a sugar bomb.

I deal with the same thing.
I use to get after breakfast but get it mid-morning.
It stoped when i started drinking a whey shake first thing.
I train in morning with a heavy bag for 45min at 80-85h/r.
Started to eat some carbs along with shake gets me to mid-morning.(orange)
When i did it with just x-tend i'd crash after breakfast.(oatmeal,apple,eggs, walnuts)
I'd diff ditch the syrup and waffels unless wheat.
Are you doing cardio?
Thinking my body shuts down in order to save cals for day.
Plus mondays are always rough don't eat alot of carbs on sundays(60g)

Cheers guys, I may stick with a shake and or oatmeal. The syrup thing is not my usual breakfast btw.
Is it possible that food in general ( any food ) may make me sluggish upon eating? Since the body's resources go into digestion mode?

Also, back to the sugar thing. I often will have sweeteners ( natural ) in tea and coffee one to three times a day. Would this spike insulin levels and keep me storing fat?

Eating a ton of carbs makes a lot of people tired. If you elicit a huge insulin response, odds are your blood sugar is going to plummet right after it spikes. If you are lucky, your genetics will warrant a smaller, steadier insulin release and you won't get tired from carbs.

No stuff like agave, unrefined raw sugar, honey etc.... Will these things keep fat on me? ( say 1-3x a day with tea ). Only usually have one coffee a day.
There's something my diet that needs some tweaking because this damn little last little spare tire is taking forever to come off.

aside from diet.... I am just wondering about honey and then other sweetners I've been using.
I wonder which has the potential to be more fattening ( not talking calories per se ) but just general effect on/in body. Would it be better to remove all SWEETENERS from diet?

yea man a couple of table spoons is a hefty amount of sugar. do that 3 times a day and you are probably getting over 100 grams of carbs from sugar alone. thats a road to diabetes. for optimal health you should remove all sugar from the diet except for 1-2 pieces of fruit a day.

speaking of high GI carbs. Can someone explain to me how a sweet potato has a lower GI than brown rice?
04-18-2011, 07:24 PM
Can it be? protoculture actually has a normal question that has nothing to do with the anus or urine?

But you forgot about my cycle idea....
Anavar mon to fri with dbol on weekends.
Or even one day Anavar one day dbol, would be interesting.

Apples are a slower carb and with the eggs(two)and walnuts1/4c.I shouldn't have a crash at all.It happens if i only eat protein and fat too.
It's pointing to the way im training.
I can tell if i'll get fatigue after eating now.Takes about 10-15min.
I work out at same time every day so thinking my body knows when to slow/shut down to fuel my training/lifting.More i eat the less fatigue i get.
If i do anymore i have to eat 4000cal a day!$$$

For one you's arn't talking about drinking your own pee are you's???
I know when i did that keto thing for a coulple weeks i lost some fat.
But wouldn't think about doing any exercise,i was recovering from overreaching and it didn;t give me any enegy at all!
As soon as i went back on i balanced plan of carbs,protein,fat i was able to train harder longer and still lose fat.
