Glycobol with simple carbs?
If a AI rep or anyone who knows can pitch in on this. Im just about to start glycobol, on the label it reads to take 25-50, 50-100g COMPLEX carbs 30m after taking Glycobol. Yet, some are taking this product with simple carbs. I just finished up with some Anabolic pump (didnt see much from it) and it as well says ONLY to take it with complex carbs. So again, is this product made to be able to be effective with simple carbs as well as complex carbs?

yes it will, its a nutrient partitioner. It will assist in minimizing some damage from your diet.
Complex im sure is just to keep folks from eating bowls of sugar all day in hopes ill it prevent them from getting fat. Either way.

i just started glycobol as well and was wondering what happens if i consume more than 100grams of carbs will it still be effective? i take 1:1

It'll still be effective be consuming over 100g of carbs you just have more of a chance that it doesnt shuttle all the carbs to the muscles which could result in some fat gain.
Im just wondering if it works with simple carbs because it says it works with your bodies insulin. which is spiked more with simple carbs so youd think that it would work just as well.

I would still try and get as many complex carbs as possible but it will work well as a mixture.

Glycobol has been very solid during the months I have been using it. Slin Sane was just implemented as well four days ago in conjunction with Glycobol, and will be used prior to breakfast and also pre-workout as well.
I want a grilled cheese when I get home... 100% whole wheat bread, fat free Kraft American cheese, and fat free Canola Oil cooking spray outta' do the trick!!

Just ordered my bottle I cant wait to try this after reading all the threads on this. Anabolic pump was a joke the 3 times I tried it but I hear this stuff is legit! I try not to eat whole food an hour before workouts but I guess I will have too now!

make sure to lift about 2 hours after eating for maximum pumps as well. this isnt touched upon enough.
It can be used with simple carbs itll drop your sugar level faster though and block absorbtion of some. your good to go man.

Something occurred to me earlier I wanted to offer the community to gather some feedback on. In short, wouldn't administration of Slin Sane or Glycobol etc immediately post-workout be counter intuitive (since the GLUT4 mechanism has already been primed and stimulated) and the imminent insulin secretion and blood sugar spike should be embraced and permitted to fully run its course?
I would be inclined to believe (at this point in my admittedly under developed theory) that GDAs such as these would be best served as an additive to breakfast and the post-post-workout meal which includes moderate carbohydrates from the lower Glycemic spectrum paired with lean protein?

I just started slin-sane a week ago but I am not dosing it pre-workout I am taking 1 cap
15 min before my early afternoon shake which consists of 20grams of protein from whey
isolate, 20 grams from micellular casien and 45 grams of carbs from oats. I am only using
slin- sane right now once a day to help absorb complex carbs better. I also have a container of Protocal from the same co. and I plan on starting that product in about
another week or two. I want to make sure the slin- sane kicks in first. I have used a few
jars of the Glycobol in the past and this supplement was pretty good but it takes a little
trial and error before you find the right dosage to use for me 1 cap of Glycobol twice a day was what worked for me and I never did more than 3 caps in one day. The one thing I liked about the Glycobol was the muscle fullness that I had I am hoping the slin-sane will have the same results. I will post back with my feedback of both Slin-sane and

Thanks so much for the continued reps and solid directive pertaining to the GDA dosing and usage. So in your estimation the GDAs primary or at least secondary function of value would be adipocyte attenuation? I have never considered this, and believe with my 'morbidly slow' metabolism, it will offer some excellent benefit over the long course of administration. Take care.

a lot of people also dont like the use of GDAs prior to working out due to the fact "why would you want to lower blood glucose pre workout" . but my answer to that is simple. it increases GH out put and fat burning, and if timed right also gives emmence pumps.

As far as not being gluttonous, that's a given. I use a scale year-round, I have never come across any other competitor who self inflicts these and other methods of ongoing calculation and calorie caution; I won't even chew gum or order anything aside from water at restaurants out of fear of incidental sugar alcohol carbohydrates or a waitress accidentally giving me regular soda. Out of my 49 meals a week, I will however plan and enjoy a single meal which is also structured around a workout in order to further ensure every macro nutrient is put to proper use.
Thanks again for your help and agreement in my proposed non-traditional GDA usage. If I have Glycobol, Slin Sane, and stand alone r-ALA what would you recommend for being used regarding breakfast, pre-workout, 15min prior to training, post workout, and post-post workout?
