Yesterday I had my am shake before the gym (did my cardio before lifting sonce it was am training) as well as my 50/50 post workout. Then went to my buddies sons 1st bday party for the afternoon. Felt like shît at the party, just exhausted. Went home after and took a quick nap and felt much better. Not sure if its the cut finally catching up to me or just an off day but it was all solved by a quick nap, a back run and some good sex ha.
Felt good when I woke up this morn so I had a pre deck hockey shake then straight to the gym after. Just had my post workout shake and am cooking up unlimited meat for the next few days.
Diet for sun-wed will be strictly meat as I'm depleting my carbs so the only carbs ill get will be from shakes (3g am, 3pwo, 3post- 9g total). Tomorrow will be my last heavy training session (arms) followed by tues/wed/thurs full body, high rep, depletion sets. Plan is to go hard tues (2sets/body part), ease off wed (2sets/part), and just a quick workout thurs (1set/part) to spike my hormones and increase absorption of the carbs ill start loading post workout thurs. thurs/fri ill be loading up on sweet potatoes with every meal (prob every 2-3hrs depending how I'm looking/feeling). Ill be heading across the state fri afternoon/eve and then the race is sat at 12 so my last couple meals will be pretty much whatever looks right.

Going on my second day of basically zero carbs and I can tell I'm gonna be dragging ass by my carb up on thurs...
Yesterday was day 1, had my am shake pre run, pwo shake, and post wo shake. I have to say those are already 3 of the 4 things I look forward to most these next few days (the other being my lifting time ha). I was surprised at how well I still felt at the gym yesterday considering I was already <50g carbs daily since last wed as well as 0 all day. Strength was a bit low but endurance seemed pretty solid still.
Same deal when I ran this morning (last full run, wed/thurs will be LISS, fast walking just to get moving) as I felt quite good and didn't have too much of an endurance issue. I can tell I'm pretty depleted but not dead. This will prob change by gym time tomorrow but that's good as ill know I'm totally depleting my glycogen as planned.

Threw together some isotean crepes for a little "dessert" ha. Just as good as everything else I've made!

Well after todays am shake and pre workout I'm down to my last scoop or so here... Gonna save this one for a special smoothie treat sometime next week after my race. I have some plans for it that involve some berries, almond milk, Greek yogurt, and maybe some other tbd ingredients (may even get a little wild and throw in some pb or Oreo crumbles... Maybe all of it?!).
Gotta say I really enjoyed this stuff the last few weeks as it was exactly what I needed to get me through this wicked carb depleting stretch. Having a nice "treat" to enjoy a few times a day without guilt really helps take the edge off of a brutal cut. Tomorrow will be the last deplete day (and only the first 2/3 of the day, post workout ill begin loading) so I'm in the clear.
The last few days I've been incredibly impressed by the lack of soreness and general fatigue I've had and since this isotean is the only thing other then chicken and beef I've been eating I have to attribute at least a portion of the recovery and general sanity to it. My workouts sat/sun/mon were still full on and I was barely even sore from them (even Mondays arms were good to go for a light full body depletion workout tues/wed). My initial rating was a 5/10 which I bumped to 6 after testing my legs out for actual recovery not just doms. I have to give another bump here since this was able to get me through a sat/sun/mon of regular lifting (sat/sun <50g carbs) as well as regular am cardio and tues/wed full body depletion workouts (mon-wed <5g carbs!). Final recovery rating for me is 8/10. Not perfect and certainly not something that I would count on to keep me going long term as a replacement for good ol carbs and food, but certainly worth it's weight as a supplementary recovery aid.
Ill post up my final review tomorrow morning back up top and probably try to get a pic of whatever I make next week in here for a final "food (porn) for thought"!
Once again, thank you to all who joined the ride and the guys at iForce for allowing me to log this. If there are any questions, things you wanna see in the final review, or final thoughts ill keep checking back for a few days and get back to you guys!
