Because it has such strong GDA effects, I (and many other people) am able to eat more carbs while I am taking it and still drop fat, similar to what people like about other GDA supplements. Ironically, many negative reviews that I see for AB/ABE involve people feeling dizzy or lightheaded after taking it. These people never bothered to contact PES about this, and will probably never know that the "side effect" was actually a highly beneficial feature of a multifaceted supplement.
On the log that I just finished, I used ABE and also before my PWO meal (60-80 grams of carbs typically) and had a lot of success with that. When I did a log of original AB at 6 pills per day and used 2 AB and 1Pslin before my PWO meal, it was unbelievable . Amazing pump and endless amounts of energy!
It is worth noting that (in case you haven't picked up on it) I respond extremely well to AB, so my results might not be typical, but I can't speak highly enough about it .
If using 4 caps daily I usually do 2/2 dosing. During the holidays, I have run it at 5-6 caps daily to help with the extra calories from all the holiday gut buster meals. I also respond well to AB and can attest to its GDA like effects. If I am going to have a cheat meal or a heavy carb meal, I usually take 2 caps of AB plus 1g of Agmatine, and 200-300mg of Na-Rala.
For example, Chinese buffet. I hardly ever go there but when I do, I go ham on it haha. Thank goodness I'm running Anabeta or Anabeta Elite when I do decide to go.
