SNS GLYCOPHASE- phase shift
- 08-10-2013, 10:59 AM
Been taking my glycophase with my first carb meal after breakfast (usually around 9-10a). This ha had me feeling much better during lunch and it seems to help "clear out" my system much faster. Second dose has been my last meal of the day which this week has been a monster cheat carb fiesta of basically junk. Can't notice any real difference here since I've been eating so much that its a guarantee that ill be bloated and full for hours after. Next week will be a good test once I'm back off the junk wagon.
Drinking my face off today so tomorrow will prob e a light calorie day anyways.

I've pretty much had an all day pump and some extreme vascularity going on. Even before some of my bigger meals I've been seeing monster veins in my forearms and up through my biceps. Other people have been commenting on it as well.
Haven't had any issues taking this on an empty stomach and then not eating right away. The first dose I felt a tad light headed but since then no problem. I even had one meal over 1.5hr after taking it (took forever to get our food at the restaurant) and had done some light hotel room workout in between. No hypoglycemic effects or anything out of the ordinary.
This next part I'm not sure if its to do with the glycophase or not but I've now drank 2 nights and neither one did I feel any hangover type effects the next morn. Once was a very limited drinking night, just a few glasses of wine; but the other I had something like 20-30 drinks and shots and woke up feeling like nothing happened. Normally I get hooorrrrriiiiible hangovers so maybe this helped?
The last note is on recovery. I've only ha 3 solid workouts while on this so far (my deload week) but they were each heavy weight and lower reps which usually gives me pretty good doms the next day or two. The first one I had a bit of lower back doms from deadlifts but nothing terrible considering that I hadn't deadlifted in weeks. Even the night I drank I woke up with not one ounce of doms which never happens to me.
So far so good. Ill have better info to report this week with a cleaner diet and beig back on a regular schedule.

Started yesterday with a re-cleaned diet and training layout... I'll be lifting 6 days a week (3 on 1 off, 3 strength/3 hypertrophy). The dosing scheme Ill be following will be 1 dose with lunch (last full meal preworkout, about 12-12:30pm - I have a shake right before but not a substantial meal) and 1 dose 45-60 min pre-bed with my last meal (usually cottage cheese with a scoop of casein, about 9pm).
The reason for this layout is such: Lunch - furthest from both my morning and workout "natural" partitioning maxes; Pre-bed - I've found that I seem to sleep like the dead when I take glycophase around bed time and wake up feeling far more refreshed and full. Haven't noticed any extra leanness in the mornings but as my diet normalizes over the next few days I'll keep an eye out.

Last couple days dosing has been consistent with 1 at my last pre workout meal and 1 pre bed. Felt a bit light headed/foggy yesterday during the day as I was lower carb but I don't think it was due to the glycophase since I took it pre bed on an empty stomach and ended up for another couple hrs without any sides.
Today is a big refeed day so ill be taking a dose with my first meal post workout and probably 1 pre bed.

Refeed day: workout was fasted this morning (pull hypertrophy). Post workout I had my shake and then about 45 min later my glycophase. I decided to make it an epic refeed and went to a sushi buffet with my sister and pounded all my cals in one monster meal (I'm talking like 7 plates of sushi and various seafood/meats, followed by a bit of ice cream). Had to have been close to 4000cal if not more. Tried to keep fatty items sparse and focus on meats and carbs but I ate until I was in pain ha.
So that was my one meal and about 8hrs later I'm feeling great. Seems to have helped my digestion a bit. Ill be taking my second dose pre bed and will be interested to see how I look in the morning. Hoping for full and lean

After y giant meal I nursed that food baby all the way until Saturday. Went to the gym fasted and had a great workout. Woke up feeling like I hadn't gorged at all. I wasn't noticeably leaner or anything but definitely full and looking better then normal after such a giant meal.
This morning I woke up down another 5lb and looking as lean as I have since my "cheat week" ha. Definitely feeling the glycophase is doing its job now that my diet is more normal. Really loving the pre bed dose especially on the weekends when I can sleep as long as I want. Wake up (after not waking up all night - 9+hrs) feeling rejuvenated and energized with almost no doms or fatigue.

So today is my bday which means last night I had some cookie cake and ice cream with dinner so I took my glycophase with this instead of pre bed. Didn't notice anything special as of this morn besides being up a few lbs (I fluctuate up and down about 3lb any given day no nbd). Yesterday was also my off day so no lift either.
Tonight ill be doing heavy pull after work followed by dinner and dessert with the fam. My mom is pretty healthy so it prob won't be too bad but ill take my glycophase with dinner and then either pre be or with dessert depending on how far apart they are. Might just try a double dose with dinner if its gonna be one big meal.

The past couple days my dosing has been consistent at 1 cap with dinner, and 1 cap pre-bed. Looks like I'm a little more then half way through the bottle now so here's my thoughts so far:
-Greatly improves sleep quality and sleeping through the night when taken pre-bed
-Seems to help with morning bloat if carbs are eaten at night
-No hypoglycemic effects if you don't eat soon enough after dosing
-Seems to be making me more "regular"
-Body looks fuller then before (not pumped, but full)
-Makes me want to sleep forever and seems to make me a bit groggy some mornings due to waking up from a deeper sleep
-No hypoglycemic effects can be felt if taken without food/carbs (makes you wonder how well/if its really working)
-Occasional (once a week or so) rough dump (a bit explosive ha) - I know this isnt diet as I eat almost exactly the same everyday
-Haven't noticed much in the way of increased pumps either from food or gym
Overall I'm enjoying the product, and am looking forward to continuing with it. By far the biggest benefit I've seen is the sleep with a pre-bed dose. The one night that I forgot to take it pre-bed I was awake 42857045703245 times (partially due to the girl that slept over crawling up my ass all night - that problem has since been solved) and felt like ass in the morning.

Today was my last workout before a weeks vacation in myrtle beach. I plan to get in some band and beach workouts but nothing too serious. Mostly just relax time. Ill be changing up my dosing to match my eating schedule so ill be taking 1 with lunch and 1 with dinner instead if pre bed to maximize my food and nutrient uptake. I'm sure ill be able to sleep just fine on vacation anyways

Just arrived at the beach this morning (on basically no sleep...) note to all: never do your back workout right before a long trip... You'll be in pain the entire time. About to have a big pasta dinner so ill be trying out double dosing my glycophase and see how that goes.
After looking at my bottle when i was packing i had a bummer realization: This will be the last week! I believe fri or sat will be te end of my run so prob early next week ill try to get up some final thoughts, weights, maybe some pics as well.

Couple quick notes from vacation so far:
Tried out a double dose with a big pasta diner te other night. Didn't feel anything special right around the meal but felt really relaxed and not bloated or anything later on.
Past couple days I've just been dosing with my two biggest meals. Usually lunch and dinner. Haven't been working out other then some snorkeling and surfing but I feel like I might actually be losing weight/getting leaner even though diet has been whatever the rest of the family is eating and quite a few drinks. Ill be interested to see if the scale agrees with my mirror analysis when I get home

Saturday was my final dose and it fit perfectly with my day as I had a few friends over and some drinks and good eats. Nothing too crazy but a good cheat day overall.
Woke up Sunday morning looking and feeling the best I had since leaving for vacation. Partially due to getting plenty of water and partially from the glycophase I think.
Overall I'd give this an 7/10. I seemed to have the best effects when taking it pre bed and thoroughly enjoyed the deep, restful sleep it provided. Weight went up significantly while i was taking this (much to be expected due to coming off a cut as well as a vacation) but i felt that a significant amount was due sinply to water and glycogen. Some pros and cons below-
-great sleep with a pre bed dose. Even better with an empty stomach.
-looked and felt fuller almost all the time
-no hypoglycemic effects even when dosing on an empty stomach or too far from a meal.
-was able to eat pretty badly at times and had minimal bloat (which is a big issue for me)
-no negative sides (gi distress, etc)
-deep sleep caused some groggy mornings
-no hypoglycemic effects (makes you wonder how well it's working)
-minimal if any impact on body comp.
-no extra pump from good or gym
Thoughts- overall I enjoyed this product and for the right price would buy it again. I have had better experiences with AP in particular but have also had worse with a few others. Diet while logging was a bit all over the place but I did feel that when it was clean I had less of an impact from the glycophase then I did when I had some dirtier meals. Definitely better for a cheat meal/day or a bulk then a cut IMO. I'd compare its effectiveness to slintensity with a bit better impact on sleep.
Thanks again to all who followed along and the boys over at SNS for the opportunity to log! Feel free to throw any questions or thoughts in here as ill keep checking for a week or so.
