    Did tension workout last night and I stil have yet to lose much strength. I'll be on later to post the new deal.
    This is normal for the first few carb loads. When I first began this diet the first few weeks at 3000 cals I put on a few pounds of fat (which seemed to all happen during the carb up) but then the weeks that followed on the same cals I started to get leaner. IMO it would be better to stick with the carb load, even if you have it only the last two meals of one night a week and load about 400-600g of carbs from complex sources.

    Yes, you should make them the last two meals of the day but make them larger carb meals. They should be ~200-300g of carbs each meal and 80-90% of that from complex sources and the other 10-20% of the carbs you can cheat with and do what you want because it won't hurt you at all. This will be enough to elicit the hormonal response each week but won't be enough to give you any spillover.

    If this one night a week works well for you after doing it for a week or two you can also throw in another night of the week with the last two meals being carb meals. If you are going to do Saturday then I would suggest Wednesday as well. You don't have to throw in this extra day however it might be beneficial for your training. This two nights a week approach is one of the ways Dr. Di Pasquale suggests cycling carbs while on a cut and it seems to work very well for people that were originally doing the 5 on 2 off approach.

    No it was later in the day. I think it had somthing to do with the MCT oil. I narrowed it down 2day & if I take more than 10gr MCT it happens.

    I found a new way to take BLAST though, just shoot down a scoop with a few sipps of water. It hit me hard and fast (combined with BLAST scooper full of Beta-Alanine). Now it could just be me but whatever it workd so im going to do it from now on .

    Man I am as indecisive(sp?) as a woman. No offense ladies, i love you all

    Ok Im back on the carb load,lol. I popped 2 AP 30min before the chinese and I finished it about 30 min ago (probably close to 150gr carbs). All of my abbs have come in (not chistled by any means, but you can see all of them pretty easily when I flex) and my bi's are stil pumped 2hrs after my workout ended!

    Geeze the 4th week really is magic on AD. I'll stop eating carbs at about noon-2pm on sunday.

    Are you taking a straight MCT supplement for your oil? If so, then try switching over to some coconut oil to get your MCT's and to possible avoid the nasea. Plus it will add a little extra zing to your cooking.

    Distilled, I think I may have told you this before but you should avoid MCT's as much as possible. They can be healthy and even aide in fat metabolism for someone who is a regular carb burner but they should be avoided by ADer's because they use a different energy substrate than long chain fatty acids which messes with fatty acid metabolism.

    Now this is interesting. MCT's are delievered directly to the liver via portal vein, and are believed to reach mitochondrial oxidation without the use of carnatine or the carnatine acyl-transferase enzymes. It still undergoes 2 carbon cleavage to yeild acetly groups for energy production. I don't really understand how that would effect a diet that is based largely on mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation in nothing but a positive way. If anything, it should actually free up carnatine and the carnatine enzymes to make carnatine transfer more effective.

    Weight 194!!!! OMG I gained 3lbs!!!!!! No not really, It was after a meal and well I am really bloated. I killed a tub of rosted salted almonds between yesterday and 2day. That alone is just over 2,000mg of sodium. On top of not drinking a ton of water and everything else I've ate which is a little higher insodium. Im not worried in the least bit.

    I'm done with the 1-Carboxy. I am now doing I-GH-1 from LG Sciences. I will be doing 4 pre-cardio or weights(whichever is fasted) and 4 pre-bed.

    BLAST
    -Overall I have been very pleased with blast. Good energy no crashes and feeling good. I am at the max dose and will ride that out until I am finished with the container. I think I have about 1.5 weeks left of BLAST if kept at my current pace?????I will be doing a final comparision between BLAST and Spike. Spike, pre blast, was my favorite energy supp. drink. Will it stil be? Tune in later to find out.....(input evil laugh)......

    Ughhh......

    I did cardio this morning and that went great. Had a great breakfast and meal 2 but it sucks now. I stopped by my work to pick somthing up and now im stuck here until at least 8. I dont have any food other than muscle milk. I already had an ON protein diet bar with 18gr sugar alcohol. I feel bloated. I probably wont be able to get into the gym 2nite either.

    Weight was 192lbs this morning. Holding strong here going to lower cals again.

    Dumping 2 scoops of BLAST in my mouth pre-cardio is really helping my get thru cardio, since I hate it.

    This is from the Metabolic Diet:

    "Medum chain triglycerides (MCTs) get a big thumb down for use with the Metabolic Diet. Very few foods actually contain MCTs, but you'll find some popular MCT supplements out there, mostly derived from coconut oil. Many people in a higher-fat regimen are bullish on these products. They say, "It's fat, why can't we use it?" The fact is that MCTs bypass the whole energy pathway we're trying to establish with the Metabolic Diet and can be very counterproductive.

    Not that MCTs can't be helpful. They can be of great use on a diet high in complex carbs because of their protein sparing effects. But on the Metabolic Diet, the body ends up using the MCTs for energy instead of the long chain fatty acids that make up most body fat. As such, we end up bypassing the very metabolic goals the Metabolic Diet is set up to achieve: to burn its own fat and use those triglycerides as a primary energy source.

    The long chain trglycerides utilized in the Metabolic Diet also have several advantages over the MCTs. They have an even greater protein-sparing effect than the MCTs. And along with decreasing the formation of bodyfat, they increase the amount of existing bodyfat borken down and greatly decrease bodyfat levels."

As such, we end up bypassing the very metabolic goals the Metabolic Diet is set up to achieve: to burn its own fat and use those triglycerides as a primary energy source.

    The long chain trglycerides utilized in the Metabolic Diet also have several advantages over the MCTs. They have an even greater protein-sparing effect than the MCTs. And along with decreasing the formation of bodyfat, they increase the amount of existing bodyfat borken down and greatly decrease bodyfat levels."
    It sounds like he is referring primarily to energy effiency with insulin blunting. Decreased insulin levels increase hormone sensative lipase. In turn HSL cleaves stored triglycerides(fat), to free fatty acids and glycerol. The FFA's in turn are transported to the liver to undergo mitochondrial and peroxisomal oxidation.

    A big part of long chain fatty acid oxidation takes place in the peroxisome, whereas short and medium chain fatty acids are oxidized primarily in the mitochondria. With the addition of MCT's, energy formation would favor mitochondrial oxidation and a more efficent energy production, thus decreasing the need for long chain oxidation via peroxisomes, and subsequently decreasing the need for triglyceride cleavage.

    If this is the primary pathway the book is talking about, I see now how it could decrease the diet's effectiveness.

    I like learning new things like this.

    Man not eating well yesterday killed me. 187.5lbs this morning before cardio

    I got a little, just a little shakey from my BLAST this morining too. May have had somthing to do with only eating about 1,200cals yesterday and an empty stomach this morning.

    cardio was great as always. 25min 10incline 3.3speed 275cals burned.

    I'll do my final review on Blast later 2day. I'm trying to build up some suspense for this review,lol.

    SPIKE
    VS.
    BLAST


    I will review Blast in each catagory and then pick a winner, if Blast is not the winner I will give a reason why

    Energy
    Blast gives a nice pick me up. No crazy rambling energy but it def makes doing things easier. For me I hate doing morning cardio, but after I'd groggle into the kitchen and slam 2 scoops Blast and chase with water i'd go lay back down and within 10-15 minutes I was wide awake and cardio was no thing.7.5/10
    Winner: Spike for all out energy. Hits me harder than ephedra.

    Jitters

    Blast gave me no jitters at all!!!! Even 2 scoops in the morning on an empty stomach. This morning there was a hint but I think it was because I had not really eaten much in the 24hours prior to that. 11/10.
    Yes an eleven!!! The energy:shakes ratio is unmatched my anything I have taken.
    Winner: Blast Spike gives me the worst shakes even with food in my stomach

    Taste
    Blast has a really light light citrusy taste. orangey grapfruit. Easily can be mixed with anything to give it "your" flavor. I was just shooting it straight down the hatch and chanseing with water and it tasted well that way,lol. 8/10
    Winner: Spike. I'm sorry spike is just too good imo, I could drink it all day.

    Feel Good Powers
    Yea I made that up,lol. Blast made me feel really really good. I've never taken anything like that before and this aspect was awsome. The PEA really served me well. Nothing like beeing "high" or "drunk" but just a confident pick me up. I really started to notice this after a few days.10/10
    Winner: BlastI dont get this from Spike, period.

    So looks like we have a tie
    Ok so here's how im going to lay it down. For strictly and energy supp to take on days your just dragging a s s. I would def reach for the tub of Blast before I'd look to the can of Spike
    But.......
    If your doing fine and just need a good kick in the pants at the gym, I'm hitting the can of Spike

    Again which one is the hands down winner there has to be one right????? RIGHT.

    So with that said the winner is............................ ....

    BLAST


    Just beats out Spike for a few simple reasons.
    1.) Cost: ~80servings of blast is a little over $30. A case of spike (24cans) is that much.
    2.) Versitility: For a little pick me up just shoot 1 scoop of BLAST and you can tackle the 8" of snow in your driveway, or that house work you've been putting off. I think you could get close to energy from spike if you hit 3 scoops but this is just speculation. I never tried it. Also you could throw a scoop in your Creatine Mono, Beta-Alanine, Arginine,etc...Your own mix. Spike foams up real bad, I've tried it.
    3.) I had a spike the other morning on an empty stomach and felt coked out. (I've never done coke before but have been around some, so its an assumption) It was bad, wirery, shake's bad, cold feeling, raceing heart.....I dont get this bad when I take it about 45 min after my pre-workout meal.

    Blast made my CKD much smoother than I could have ever imagined. Last time I went into no carbs I wasn't doing things quite the same but it was hell energy wise. Thats where BLAST shined the brightest.

    There you go guys, any other questions throw em at me. Like promised I'll get some final pictures up.

    I'm on week 4 of AD also. My meals today on carb up day are oatmeal, banana's, milk, supercarb, ezikiel bread, butter, some whey. Trying to keep it cleaner than I was before. We'll see what happens.



    Speaking of BLAST, I could use some myself. I'm all out of pre-workout supplements.

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity!!!!!

    Since amphetamines are banned by the NCAA, I think I will be doing BLAST for the season. Since it has the Poseidon mix also. Should give me a nice edge without the shakes at the plate.
