    Still, with some grapefruit juice and a can of tuna, that would all blend up in an Oster, and could be chugged if you were crammed for time...!

  19. Final Review!!!!!!!!!

    PW: 160
    CW: 160 (as of this morning)

    Starting carb intake: 65g
    Current carb intake: 140g

    Starting calories: 1500-1600
    Current calories: 1800-1900

    GLYCOPHASE

    Before diving into GDA's, my diet consisted of low carb during the week with a weekly refeed. Basically I had to be really restrictive during the week if I wanted to have my cheat meal on the weekend. Well I did this for a few months and found this wasn't effective because even on a low calorie diet during the week I was tired, cranky, frustrated, and not seeing the results I wanted. I decided to transition into a more flexible way of dieting last month with Glycophase.

    Each week I slowly added in calories and carbs with the use of Glycophase. Over the course of the past few weeks I have been able to increase my carb intake from 65g to 140g peri-workout and calorie intake from ~1500 to ~1900 without added fat gain. I was even able to keep my carb intake higher on cardio days, about 60-70g, and about 50g on complete rest days. I believe the slight increase each week along with Glycophase allowed my body to adapt to the higher carb intake. I am now maintaining on a reasonable amount of calories and when I feel it is time to cut again I will have a higher baseline to work with. The one side effect that I experienced early on was hypoglycemia. Do NOT dose and then under eat carbs, which is what I mistakenly did. Follow the directions on the bottle and it is smooth sailing. I really have enjoyed my run with Glycophase and am only sad that yesterday was my last day, but I would absolutely recommend this product and would love to run it again in the future.

    FOCUS XT

    Focus XT gave me nice, smooth energy to fuel me during some of my best workouts to date. I never once felt jittery with focus XT like I have with other pre-workouts. Every morning I have a cup of coffee and later in the afternoon/evening I have a scoop of focus xt and it didn't have any ill effects. I enjoyed the Cotton Candy flavor and still have 1/2 tub left. For leg days I'd use a full scoop and other days I'd use 3/4 scoop. The effectiveness for me grew even more when I would take a day or two off. I would feel the effects almost immediately. There are some supplements out there where you don't want to finish the tub, but that is not the case here. I will definitely finish off this tub because I'm very curious about the other flavors as well.

    Thank you to the SNS reps and Mack for keeping me in mind to run these 2 products. I enjoyed both Glycophase and Focus XT. And thank you to everyone who followed along and made this a fun ride for me: McCrew, Sean, 804, Mano, Noosh & PB! Much love! Now it's time to hibernate into the gym for the winter and work my booty off.

  20. Dont work your booty off! Build it up great log!

  26. I enjoyed your log Kix. Your training routine is a very good one too. I envy you being able to train outdoors, now if we can just figure out how to haul what we need to the park and do the same.

  27. Subbed just because.
