Welcome all! First off, thanks you to all the guys over at SNS for the opportunity to log what should be a great new GDA product. Special thanks to Spaniard for the promo and all the boys who helped fuel the pop tart filled conversation ha. Over the next few weeks ill be logging my experiences with GLYCOPHASE by SNS. I plan to try out a few different dosing schemes (caps, timing, etc) and will comment on the different effects of each. If anyone has anything in particular that they'd suggest or like to see me try, feel free to suggest!
A bit about me:
Experience: recreational lifting since I was 17, serious lifting since 22, dieting clean for the last 2yrs
What ill be running concurrently: isolate & casein protein, , multi (bare bones supps)
Caloric intake scheme: ill be coming off a 12 week cut where i was at; 1500-1800cal/day, no carbs after 4pm, low carb most of the week with 1 refeed on back or leg day. New scheme: starting next Monday (8/5); carbs with breakfast, pre workout, and post workout. May have an occasional cheat meal as well wherever it fits as ill be getting back into "social" dieting ha.
6:15a- 5whites, 1-2c spinach, 1/2-3/4c oats (depending if its a lifting day or double cardio) 9:15a- 8oz chicken, salad
12:15p- same as 9:15
3:00p- 1sc isolate (may add 1/4-1/2c oats depending on feel and lift or cardio day)
3:45p- lifting or cardio (looking to do a push pull legs split with a 2 on 1 off, 1 on 1 off schedule)
PWO- 1/2sc each isolate/casein, carb of the day (may be something fun like pop tarts or ice cream ha)
6:30-7p- chicken, large salad
9:30-10p- 1sc casein or same meal as 6:30
How I plan on using: I would use this with my first carb meal and last pre workout meal (may be te shake on lifting days or the lunch meal on cardio). Would also be willing to give this a try post workout with a larger carb meal just to test it out.
Im currently finishing up my cut and carb deplete so ill plan to start dosing this pwo tomorrow (thurs) while I carb load for the weekend. Ill use this as well through the weekend while i basically binge eat my way through it after my race ha. After the weekend I plan to reintroduce more carbs back into my diet as well as not eating nearly as clean. This product would hopefully help with the transition from lower cal/carb "cutting" back to maintenance and beyond without a huge ballooning effect (I've made the mistake in the past of reintroducing any food (mostly junk) immediately post cut and gained 20lb in two weeks! Lost basically 12 weeks of progress overnight...).
I have some experience with AP and to compare with so this will be my baseline. Ill try to get some pics up before my carb up, during, and prob at the end of the log for comparison. Ill try to keep the details to the meals I dosed with and timing of dosing as well as how I look and feel during these next few weeks. Welcome aboard the phase !
