What a log! You're bulking while taking 'random fat burners'... hmmm... You're looking to keep a log with the confounding variables of several types of NO products... hmmm... I hope it all works out. It will be interesting, but not very useful to others.
12-18-2006, 11:45 PM
I suggest dropping the fat burners and other random stuff out and stay with your multi-v and possibly a NO and creatine outside of the BAM. Since you're testing the product you want to keep the log clean of variables.

Does GNC's protein give you gas? My roommate had it in college and he never used it, so I made do with a free tub of the banana cream protein (100% whey) and my farts smelt like an hot, old well (rotten eggs with a twist). I think that year I threw out 4 good pairs of underwear because they were completely destroyed.

On the plus side of the GNC protein, when my roommate was annoying me at night with the TV being too loud or something, I'd blend me some protein and eat that with a bowl of Kashi. I would pretend I was sleeping while dropping the bombs. He would promptly vacate and spend the rest of the night on the couch. One would swear it smelt like you were in a dirty hen coop or a manure barn.

Nycste, if you don't want people to post then you may have just held off on creating the thread until the log starts. Although...nevermind.
12-19-2006, 12:19 AM
My apologies for posting such stupid stories in this thread. The GNC protein brought back a lot of funny memories. I have a very twisted sense of humor and should post that crap in the appropriate space.Originally Posted by Jayhawkk

I picked up a small tub of GNC's 100% whey protein that was on the blowout shelf just incase I need some firepower over the holidays. I don't know what is worse: North Korea upgrading their nuclear arms program, or me getting my hands on the volatile GNC protein powder. Both can be dangerous weapons of mass destruction.Originally Posted by poison

Glycerol, which is used to avoid dehydration, will cause extensive urination as it is further metabolized and the water is excreted from the body.Originally Posted by nycste
I am one of the University of New Mexico scientists who first researched glycerol hyper hydration for improved exercise performance. Based on our and Bud Riedesel's findings (1987), the university invested in patent protection for using glycerol as a hyper hydration agent suitable for use during exercise. In 1996, the patent was purchased by InterNutria, a nutritional supplements company within the larger InterNueron Pharmaceutical Company. Thus, InterNutria has patent protection for using glycerol hyper hydration for enhancing exercise performance.
I am currently contracted by InterNutria to provide scientific advice and commentary on their glycerol product - "ProHydrator". ProHydrator was scheduled to be released to market this June, but the USOC ban on glycerol 'came out of the blue' and has delayed the product release. Such a delay was decided by the company due to the sponsorship of USA Triathlon, as well as several professional triathletes.
From my understanding, the USOC ban is based on glycerol being classified as a tissue dehydrator. Other tissue dehydrators are mannitol, sorbitol, and urea. Such substances are routinely used in clinical practice to dehydrate the brain and eye as a treatment for edemas resulting from a variety of clinical disorders. It just so happens that mannitol, sorbitol, and urea are also potent osmotic diuretics. Glycerol seems to have been included in the banned list of mannitol and sorbitol due to the potential for glycerol-induced diuresis.
I have recently written a major review of the clinical and applied uses of glycerol ingestion. It is currently in review. Within this manuscript is a section that pertains to glycerol-induced diuresis. It is important to remember that glycerol ingestion is not the same as glycerol hyper hydration. The latter involves the additional ingestion of 1-2 L of water. Simply ingesting a concentrated solution of glycerol will not hyper hydrate the body, but dramatically increase glycerol concentrations in the blood, interstitial fluid, and kidney filtrate. Increased urinary glycerol has the potential to increase urine flow due to retarding water reabsorption in the kidney. This is the mechanism of the diuresis from mannitol and sorbitol.
Glycerol does not cause a marked diuresis, however, because glycerol is still rapidly reabsorbed in the proximal and distal tubules. Mannitol and sorbitol are not. There is no evidence in the medical literature for a glycerol-induced diuresis. Nevertheless, anecdotal expressions of glycerol-induced diuresis occur in many manuscripts.
I have written a scientific reply to InterNutria for use in the company petitioning the USOC to remove the ban on glycerol.
It is ironic that glycerol has been used by the world's elite athletes for many years. Although it is easy to assay for urinary glycerol, and interpret data, I do not think the testing lab has or is currently performing the assay. It would be easy to detect exaggerated use of glycerol as the kidney can reabsorb almost all glycerol up to blood glycerol concentrations approximating 1.2 mmol/L. As resting blood glycerol approximates 0.05 mmol/L and may increase to 0.5 mmol/L during extreme prolonged exercise and carbohydrate depletion, the only way to cause glycerol to appear in the urine is to ingest large quantities. Thus, if the USOC wanted to, they could easily determine a urinary concentration indicating large amounts of glycerol ingestion. For your information, urinary glycerol can increase to above 20 mmol/L within 30 min after ingesting 1.2 g glycerol/kg body wt.
The USOC is not justified in the ban on glycerol for hyper hydration or proposed metabolic advantages to athletes. Hyper hydration is no worse than ingesting liquid carbohydrate or water during exercise. In addition, glycerol turnover data indicate that 60% of glycerol is converted to glucose in the liver and kidney, 30% is incorporated into glycolysis for oxidation, and the remainder is presumably involved in triacylglycerol metabolism.
It appears that the ban on glycerol is a mistake and should be reversed in the near future. Failure to reverse the ban will not only expose to elite athletes to continued high risks of heat injury, but potentially result in a series of law suits from athletes and nutritional companies against the USOC.

whoah thanks for the info force of green. yea i know other peeps have said that glycerol does stuff like that but that night was a killer. wokeup 4 times to pee then again once i finally got up for good crazy.

Take advantage of it bro. If you must wakeup to take a leak, have a bottle of whey or something in the bathroom or by your bedside and drink some protein. Also, I don't know if you're a lucid dreamer, but one of the many technics for lucid dream induction involves waking up during the night to induce longer, more vivid REM sleep stages.Originally Posted by nycste

thanks for stopping by other peeps.

Some info on bladder capacity for you:Originally Posted by nycste
Stop drinking liquids an hour or so before bed to prevent trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I know that for some who take bedtime pills, this may be a problem, but it's one or the other; Sleep thorough or 'wake and pee' throughout the night.The need to urinate varies based on what and how much one drinks. In general, the bladder should empty every 3 to 6 hours or 4 to 6 times in 24 hours. The average bladder capacity is 10 to 20 ounces, though this decreases a bit with aging.
Most adults feel no signal to urinate until the bladder is about half full or more. After that first signal, the sensation subsides temporarily. As the bladder gets fuller, the signal returns and gets stronger and more frequent, but still subsides if urination needs to be delayed.
It is not normal to have to rush to the toilet. Even after the first warning, people with normal bladder function can usually postpone emptying the bladder until the appropriate time and place. The first warning of the need to go can occur 1 to 2 hours before the bladder is actually full. Strong urgency can occur if you've been ignoring a mounting need to go for a long time, or if you've drunk a large amount of fluids or take water pills. Under ordinary circumstances you should not have a strong urgency to urinate.
Your glycerol consumption will cause urination no doubt and now that you mention you drink a 32 oz. liquid protein drink? lol... If you knock yourself out with a strong enough sleep aid or you're extremely tired, you will become a bed-wetter. I know from studying on dreams as well that those who go to sleep truly exhausted or really 'knocked out' can be subject to false awakenings, whereas your dream will abruptly end and you will actually dream that you are waking up out of bed, but infact you're just truly too tired to actually come out of sleep... With this in mind, you could dream that you're going to the bathroom to urinate and your 32 gram Max Milk will be a nice spherical stain on the sheets by your crotch. Drinking too much fluid and being too tired will conflict: 1. Your bladder must empty when it reaches maximum capacity 2. If your body needs the recovery sleep bad enough, it will remain asleep. You'll just empty out while you sleep.
Something that can help you if you insist on drinking too much before bed and you need help with keeping bed-wetting in check:
Hypnosis works on many people. Technically speaking, we are able to be hypnotized, it just depends on how suggestible we are to the process.Bed wetting affects the whole family not just the person wetting the bed. It is distressing for a child, but can put stress on everyone around. And an adult suffering from enuresis (the medical term) may feel embarrassed, ashamed, and inadequate.
The urge to urinate and to wake up are 'unconscious' processes and hypnosis works at an unconscious level. Many bed wetters have been helped to dryness through the use of hypnosis.

12-30-2006, 10:01 PM
I try... I've been waking up prematurely to urinate and I just take Camphibolic before bed. Maybe I could use less water, but I want to make sure the pills get down. I hate that feeling of having caps stuck in your throat. Even if I take Ambien CR or whatnot... I even took 2 grams of phenibut (which I once stayed asleep for 13 hours on) because I felt I wase overtrained and was going to dedicate two nights to sleeping a gruesome 12 hours, and I still woke up to take a leak. I usually require 9-10 hours and 12 hours is a bit much, but it's not oversleeping if your body needs it. Natural sleep is great, but nothing I've had beats a phenibut induced sleep.
Back to topic, my bad. Hope the Mass FX is going as well for you as it is with me as part of my recomp stack! I'm dying to get back what I lost and more (before mono). I've actually surpassed what I was and now I'm only half way into my NHA phase of the stack! I have a long ways to go and I'm betting yall that I'm sub 11% bodyfat! I'll get some pics ASAP.
On with the LOG!

Asparagus is OFTEN used during the last week of contest prep for competitors because of its natural abilty to eliminate water.
