I want to take this first sentence to thank John Smeton for hooking me up with a sweet 4 week run ofand some samples- , , , , and ...Awesome! Again, really glad to be running the Glycobol. Years ago I ran stuff like ALA and Vanadyl Sulfate and it really helped me achieve some of my fitness goals-over six months I saw some serious changes in physique, muscle , and fullness. The plan this time around is similar, diet is in check, four days of lifting with a split routine and cardio every morning for 15min-light work.
The goal is to keep muscle while shedding body fat and control my isulin spiikes from the poor habits of the occasional brownie, cookies, and/or cake during my off days.
This is my first log on any site...

Back when life was easier - pre children, wife and responsibility staying fit was a no brainer-I biked everywhere hit the gym four days per week and devoured everything in sight. Now, things as one would imagine are different, the care free, easy living metabolism of my is gone.
Let's get on with the log....
I'm currently on my eighth day of Glycobol taking the recommended dosage of 2am/2pm. In other post I've read some people have stomach sensitivity when starting this product-lucky me, no issues at all. Day eight has been interesting as I have started noticing while on Glycobol that i get really sleepy after the morning dosage when taken before breakfast. Breakfast usually consist of two or three eggs - whole, greek yogurt-***e, and 1/2 cup of blueberries. Im thinking the carb load isn't heavy enough...luckily I keep a bag of jelly beans near by popping one at a time until i'm good.
Observation #1: By the time I eat breakfast, 9am, I haven't had anything to eat for approximately 12 hours. I have been thinking about a blood sugar monitor to see whats happening-monitor the physiological effects.
Using Glycobol after a workout isn't a problem as most of my post workout shakes and meals are high in carbs. The shake usaually consist of 55 grams of protein-dymatize elite, 5 grams of , 5 grams of , 3 grams of creatine mono and 60 grams of carbs by way of - I start consuming my shake during my cool down period. 90 Minutes after my shake I have a small meal-usaully 5 cups of raw spinach, olive oil and approximately 6 oz. of Chicken or Beef-always simple.
Observation #2: Mid night snack attacks are gone-placebo effect? Also, I wake up feeling absolutely incredible because I am sleeping a lot better and my AM cardio routine is not the dreaded event that it was in the past-usually felt tired, lethargic and my muscles felt like they couldn't keep up without a PWO- not my favorite thing to do in the AM.
I'll be posting about weekly. As i mentioned before this is my first post, if there is anything you guys feel is needed to make this post better chime in, i'd love to hear the ideas or thoughts.
