    Fructose preferentially refills liver glycogen. We are primarily trying to feed the muscles.

    Pretty sure it is because it is used by the liver, rather then to fill muscle glycogen.

    does this have to do with "fruit" drinks. my grape juice is from concentrate and says nothing about being real fruit juice. any thoughts?

    I tend to shy away from fruit drinks made from concentrate because like you said, often times they don't tell you how much real fruit juice is in there. But if it says "fruit juice" on the bottle, then legally in the US it must come from 100% fruit juice. If it is a blend of fruit juice and other ingredients then it may be called something like a "fruit drink" but it cannot say "fruit juice" on the label. Either way, it would be best to stay away from the juice drinks that don't tell you the content. But a "fruit drink" may contain something like 1% of fruit juice from concentrate which would be a negligible amount of fructose. So if the label says "1% fruit juice from concentrate" then this is okay to consume.

  7. I guess my liver is full as **** right now, then

  8. well, sunday (1700) and today (1800) i ate lower cals. lowered em from 2200 where i was at last week. no energy loss whatsoever. my lifts continue to improve bit by bit. and i'm incorporating that HIT into the routine. this week will be a 10 minute session after each lift. next week, will be two more sessions, 15 minutes on tue/thur. then i'll up them two to 20 minutes the next week. and then the week after, i'll lower my cals again by 100 or so. this all also includes lowering the carbup a bit. by about 4-6 weeks, i should be all good. gonna order me some BCAA'S to sip on with meals. i'll then of course lower my real food protein a bit. but i feel i want me some of that good BCAA power. gonna go with NP's bulk. no added crap in it, like aspartame, glutamine, etc.

    just an update for y'all. i'll let you guys know next week how this week has gone.

    how many carbs right now on your carb up? and what is your weight?

    Actually when you're liver is full, it spills over into fat after you consume excess fructose. The body stores fructose in the liver only, so if you eat 10 bowls of fruit it spills over and you get fat.

    i weigh right now a bit under 200. and as far as my carb up, i was initially hitting 950. and then this past week i hit it down to 850. i was thinking that i'd stick at 800 til i shed a bit more weight, though.

    LOL great. Luckily I only got about 165g fructose carbs.

    You're cool then.

    The good news is that it uses liver glycogen as one of the first sources of energy, so even when you're filling up, it's likely tapping into it.

  14. Any truth to the atkins method of "total carbs"?

    how does that go?

    It's all subjective. Everyone requires or uses a different number of calories and carbs depending on a million factors.

    I meant "net carbs" as in the net carb amount (the important number in atkins) = total carbs-alcohol sugars-fiber= net carbs.

    Another Question- Who thinks DinoBites (mimic fruity pebbles) are fructose?

    I would say dinobites are not fructose. How much sugar per serving in those?

    Don't know, don't care

    why the **** did you ask then

  21. Because if it's fructose I don't want to eat much of them. If they aren't, well then I don't care!

  22. i don't know what the hell is going on this week. i'm carb-loading right now and i keep breaking into sweats everytime i eat cereal or drink gatorade. any clue?

  23. Don't know but I feel super bloated and lethargic right now. BLAH.

    I stole your frosting idea from another thread. Yum.

  25. So I just did a killer legs workout on thursday, with my carb-up being on wednesday. I am deathly sore right now (saturday). I have been eating a ton of protein, but my recovery time still blows. Does this have to do with having no carbs, or am I doing something wrong?

    After my workout on wednesday, this is what my day looked like.

    Post-Workout- 1 egg, 1.5 scoops ON Whey in water, 2TBS NPB

    1 hour later- 1 can Tuna w/ Mayo a handful of walnuts, and a spinach salad with EVOO

    the rest of the day was basically 30-50g protein every 2-3 hours, along with various sources of fat.

    I repeated the same thing yesterday with my chest/tricep workout, and my arms feel fine. Why are my legs always still really sore for 2-3 days after i work them?

    Are you eating enough calories and do you have a high enough percentage of fat in your diet?

    roughly 3000 calories. I weigh about 150. That should be plenty, right? It might be not enough fat, I'll try to get some more in.

    It just seems weird that my upper body always recovers fine, but my legs suck.

    I'd think 3000 would be enough. You should be getting 65-70% fats. How long have you been on the diet?

    This is my 6th week. I haven't really been doing any really intense weight workouts yet though, as I wanted to be sure I had made the "metabolic shift". It's my first time, so I get a little nervous about everything

    Subtract the fiber.

    Can't find any info on dinobites, they usually have a breakdown on Nutritiondata.com of the sucrose, glucose, fructose, etc that a product has. Doesn't even list it for fruity pebbles.

    Some people respond badly to alcohol sugars, I just avoid them in general.
