    Supplement to take prior to cheat meals?


    Being from an Italian family, we often have family events involving copious amounts of food which never seem to stop coming. While I am pretty good at controlling myself in how much and what I eat, I will, without doubt, overeat - particularly at dessert (obviously).
    Are there any supplements which may be able to minimize the storage of these (often processed) foods as fat, and instead say as glycogen?
    I'm following the leangains IF diet at the moment so I generally make sure I work out the morning of these cheat meals.

    After reading through multiple posts on the forum, it seems that one following could pertain to my needs: Burn24, Recompadrol, Slinsane, Defuse, Glycophase. Thoughts on which would be best?
    Thanks!

    You nailed it with the first two in my books and a lot of people here have found good results with them.

    Burn 24 or Recompadrol are great, if it is Italian cuisine I'm thinking carb heavy much more so than fat, so I may lean towards Recompadrol.

    If you really want to safeguard against the fat gain you could add in Metabolic powder as well

    GlycoPhase is a great choice for a nutrient partitioner in general. This and Recompadrol are two common recommendations. However, with cheat meals, people usually don't use products like these.

    Yeah generally much more carb heavy! Would an EBF rep be able to outline how recompadrol would benefit me? I saw that Coop posted that Burn24 contains ingredients which would inhibit carbohydrate digestion.. Sounds like what I need haha!

    I see.. so what is the reason why they wouldn't use these with cheat meals?

    They are aiming for the cheat meals to replenish glycogen and help boost metabolism if it has been slowed by long dieting. For scheduled refeeds GDA's aren't needed.

    I'm sure an EBF rep will be around they usually are

    I'm sure I've read that ECA before a meal increases its thermic effect by some 30%.

    Sorry man, was smashing legs.

    Do you have all those at your disposal?

    If so, I'd preload defuse a couple caps every 2 hours until 30 min prior to meal in which you would take 4 recompadrol with that dose, then 2 with the meal

    Depending on carb content

    Using ephedrine will slow transit time and increase satiety

    I typically take it when I cheat, and then a B complex and dogestie enzymes with first bite of meal

    Burn 24 and it's not even close. Recompadrol looks fantastic but I have yet to try it.

    +1 for glycophase. Does the job and for a rather nice price.

    Add in GCBE when you have an unscheduled cheat meal or do not require much carb utilisation.

    I mean it is probably the most effective supplement I have ever taken. Bulk, Cut, Carb backload, carbs one night a week, etc. That is coming from somebody who all but gave up on GDA's but this is a different beast and much more than a GDA/damage control product.

    I got zero from Slin Sane (og) and the newer version, Glycophase was blah, Anabolic pump was ok, Glycobol was an expensive enema. I would try Recompadrol though if not for Burn24.

    Ok awesome thanks heaps!! Super helpful so did you just does it as a couple of caps 30 mins before a large meal? did you use it before scheduled carb meals as well as unscheduled ones?

    When you say glycophase was blah, what were you expecting to notice?

    So I've used it in quite a few settings. I started using it during my one day of carbs which takes place from 5-10pm and is basically a free for all. I ate whole pizzas, wings, Chinese, ice cream, donuts etc. I just dosed it 15-30 mins prior to those meals which came out to 8-10 caps when it was all said and done. Carb backloading I did 2 caps before my 3 carb containing meals which all took place between 5-10pm but it took place every night and not one night a week like the diet I alluded to just above.

    When dieting just take 2 caps before any carb containing meal 15-30 mins prior and when bulking do the same just take them before your 3 biggest meals.

    I would expect the ability to tolerate carbs better. Which I found out was not the case. Seemed to have no effect on bloat or fat gain. I'm already very lean but I don't tolerate carbs very well which is why I opt for backloading or carbs one night a week they work well with my body. While taking Burn24 I completely abandoned both after a while since I could increase my carbs immensely at any point during the day while on Burn24 with no repercussions.

    Burn 24 has an included GCBE which prevents carb absorption, why not just buy that in bulk?

    True but to be honest I think bergenin is the highlight of the profile.

    Please don't take the Glycophase criticism as an attack I use many SNS supplements but that one just didn't happen to work too well for me. You know as well as I do everything in this industry is very individualized. No harm no foul.

    Oh I don't, not at all. I was just curious as GDA's are very complex and work via multiple pathways so I was just wondering what you were expecting.

    And absolutely, people react/ respond to things in various ways and in some cases, not at all.

    Over Christmas I was doing glycophase/Agmatine and picked up a bottle of burn24 during nutras sale. It was epic to say the least.

    I had to get lean and dry a few months ago for an event i was going to. I was using (all pre meal) 2 caps glycophase, 1-2g Agmatine, 2 caps GCB. Or I'd use something like Glycophase + TUDCA which worked very well too. I love carbs, bloat moderately hard, but glycophase really does reduce my bloat, and i don't get a huge lethargy spike post meal like i normally would. That right there is a huge benefit for me.

    Goodness. When you used the TUDCA, what dose did you use?
