    40 mins preworkout on empty stomach. 20 mins later took 2 scoops of GlycoMyx with some protein.


  2. When using Slintensity or GDA's in general should you keep your fats low? and sugar intake low? The only sugar in my diet comes from fruits. Fat comes from coconut oil.

    No. And using only coconut oil as a fat source is a surefire way to run into a host of metabolic problems down the road.

    I meant when I use Slintensity. My main sources of fats is nuts, coconut oil, avacodas, olives, salmon.

    Also, fructose is not the best source of carbohydrate. One or two pieces of whole fruit should be fine, but complex carbs and dextrose are better. I'd keep total fructose under 50 grams -- keep in mind that one half of regular sugar will break down into fructose.

    Piggybacking on this statement do you think half coconut oil and half evoo is an ok split in your meals?

    I eat half an apple with 6 ounces of black beans and 4 ounces of white rice.

    You'd get almost no saturated fat in your diet (I'm not talking about coconut-based MCTs, but rather long chain triglycerides). Also, no epa/dha/ala. Also, lack of balance between PUFA and MUFA. In the end, it's all about eating a balanced diet. Turn to just one or two foods for all your macronutrient needs and things can get out of wack longterm.

    This is extremely inaccurate. Fruits contain both fructose and glucose, and usually more of the latter. The kinetics of fructose in fruits prevents rapid blood sugar spikes that can lead to potential issues. Sucrose is a different story

    I wouldn't take slintensity prior to a pure fat meal, but if you take it with a fat+carb meal, it may even be preferable due to the reduction in insulin levels.

  13. This is a nice discussion.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Re-read the previous page. Each ingredient has a unique MOA. You can certainly test glucosal disposal via a glucometer for this "battle," but as far as the most beneficial for health or body composition...comparing one to another is apples to oranges, as odd as it sounds. The category as a whole is very diverse.

    Got cha. Yeah it is a bit boggling the diversity.

    See you're a fan of both.

    You did a nice clarification on explaining the difference between a GDA & partioner. Seems like some of these products out there would achieve both goals.

    The liver will can only handle about 50gm per day. Beyond this fructose will be stored as fat. Unlike glucose, fructose can only be used to replenish liver glycogen. If hypocaloric it probably doesn't matter much. My mind is currently focused on lean gains so I'm probably overlooking fat loss considerations such as blood sugar stabilization that you pointed out. But fats and fiber can also be used for this purpose. With all this said, I stand by my recommendation of less than 50gm fructose per day. This still permits for plenty of fruit in one's diet.

  17. Sadly my 4 day Slintensity run comes to an end as I go low calorie/very low carb the next 3 days. Saturday on the carb up I will be right back on it!

    No, again inaccurate because it is dependent on one's lifestyle, chronically speaking (unless heavily endurance training). Metabolism is not so simple a concept as to set gram-limits for individual monosaccharides. Fructose is actually converted almost entirely to glucose given that the kinetics are in place (hence, fruit).

    Since you are more knowledgeable I will not try to debate the issue. My understanding is that fructose is always converted to liver glycogen. From there converted to glucose if needed. I was not aware that it can convert directly to glucose?

    Therefore, if liver gycogen is full (given an energy surplus), any additional fructose would be stored as fat. As apposed to starches and glucose which can also be used to replenish muscle glycogen and be directly utilized for energy.

    Hypocaloric is a different story as all calories will directly or indirectly be utilized with the net result being "weight" (hopefully fat) loss.

    If my understanding is not correct, I apologize. Please clarify what I'm missing. Sorry OP for going a little off topic.

    Tried this yesterday and almost died.... No i'm just kidding. haha. I didn't notice a drastic difference besides increased appetite.

  21. ^ Google search "alan aragon fructose"

    Thanks. I'll check it out.

    Just read an interview with him by Marc Lobliner yesterday. It was definitely a good read.

  24. What else is everyone seeing in terms of Slintensity?

  25. Will this be available in the UK? If so, when?
