    bingo
    they have a number of diet plans that they have now accumulated thru the yrs, and have direction for any goal you want to accomplish
    IMO, they have absolutely no peers when it comes to perfecting this approach, for virtually any bodytype in existence
    classy company..products are all pretty solid as well (albeit a bit ridiculous in pricing, some of them)
    Well, you're doing an outstanding job my friend. I know my coach used them as a reference when doing my prep diet. I love some of their supps, mostly Mass Aminos/Ultra-40's. agreed with some of their pricing.

    Thanks for the input snag!

  3. What's the protocol like for MCT? I recently bought a bottle from NOW Sports. Should I dose in the morning? Preworkout? Postworkout? Please forgive my ignorance on the topic.

    Morning and preworkout. Be warned, start with 1 table spoon because it will kill your Gi tract if you're not used to it. Work your way up to 3-4 table spoons if you can handle it.

    How about with food in the late afternoon/night?

    yep, definitely don't just jump into deep end of the pool, its not a good feeling.

  7. @The Solution knows a lot about mct oil. He helped me with a diet on it back in an older thread. I replaced about 200-300 kcal with mct oil during
    My
    Bulk and maintained my leanness

    I'm using it now to get a few more calories in and it's working well. Also it's a great thermo'

    Yeah it would. Mct oil has a different pathway than regular triglycerides. Add some in little by little and if you look like you're gaining fat then stop. But I doubt you wil, the thermo effect should help lean you eat while gaining Mass from the exta calories.

    Because it's a thermogenic and it's 7 calories from fat. However it's MCt, it's pathway and ending point is different. I forgot the mechanism for it though, but it isn't stored.

  11. It's bc of the structural make up of the fat, different from other bc it's a shorter chained triglyceride. In short, you're body's like WTF?!?

    I have that too. You ever get nauseous from it?

    that's why they recommended to start with a single tablespoon. if you take too much its hard on the gutz!
