  1. I have never had the pleasure of being a true bb.com member. I went from nothing, to superior muscle, and now AM. Glad I found it and dont plan on leaving anytime soon.


  2. I have long since given up the low GI fight at bb.com
    Needless to say my coffee grinder cops a good workout every day
    I figure if I ever get around to posting transformation pics when Im done and then him em with the ol' low GI line, a few guys may actually listen.
    The thing I love most about guys liked Rippd is that he will use scientific studies to try and prove his point, but if you post a study, it isnt valid because "its not the real world".

  3. just wait untill alan's new article, i have great expectations for it
    he is going to disband all the fruit, milk and casein bashers and im sure have some killer PWO guidelines!

    alan is truely a gem of the bb.com community, everyone should go read his posts!

  4. I have to admit, being a recent AM arrival after having been on bb.com for about a year, I am a high-GI, but I don't have a scientific backing for doing so. I don't use more than 40-50g of dex post workout. Is this really bad for me? Would that amount risk fat storage? The ony reason I really want to keep taking dex PW is b/c I love the taste w/ Syntrax Nectars and Substance WPI. If it weren't for the taste w/ those proteins, I would gladly give oats a try.

    I love guys like this Rippd guy. I've never actually debated with someone that actually proved my whole point.

    Then he wants to talk about "what works". Maybe I should cut and past all my clients logs and show him "what works".

    This guy is the epitome of the gym guru. What a jackass.

    you will be happy to know that he also believe glutamine is the best thing since sliced bread

    although I do disagree with you on one pointin that thread bobo... even once fat is emulsified, it can still cause CCK release, which will slow gastric emptying.

  6. I visit for the nice pics and to look up user comments about products (does a certain product taste good, for example).

    Layne, his arguement didn't even include the small intestine. He was only concerned with the stomach, not CCK release and subsequent bile release.

    Any nutrient dense liquid in general will slow gatric emptying (within the small intestine) but the principal determinant rate of any liquid is first volume, then composition second.

    He probably didn't even understand fats were emulsified in the small intstine. I agree with you about the emusification but he he dind't understand the process of a bolus being broken down into chyme so I doubt he knows anything about the digestion and absortion of nutrients in the small intestine. That would have dragged in out another 3 pages.

    And I whole heartedly agree with you in that he knows **** about digestion. If everything took 2-6 hours to empty from the stomach (as he seems to think) then we'd feel like **** after every single meal

  9. Alright nutrition majors....

    Does the type of protein play a role in pre and post-workout supplementation? I'm thinking perhaps it really doesn't matter in terms of time to be digested (not taking into account what sort of carb it is taken with).

    But what do you guys think? Is there a type of protein best suited for pre-WO (I use dex/pro about 15 mins before) and post-WO w/ low GI?

  10. bump on my question for Bobo or str8

  11. It depends on the protein source. If its a whole food with high fat content is will easily slow digestion but if its powders then they will be processed at a faster rate (although somewaht different depedning on source)

    If you are eating a meal then a good lean source of slow protein is good pre-workout then post workout you DEFINETLY want a fast source (whey).

    If you pre workout meal consists of a shake then a good whey/casein mix would be good.

    There are just a lot of variables to take into account.

  12. That's interesting but which do you think is better? It seems that there are two ways to look at this. One has you taking whey/simple carbs preworkout which may inhibit a little GH release (also might actually make you tired) but the other has you taking whey/simple carbs post workout which may kick you out of the so-called "fat burning state". It seems to me that it is best to stay low GI both pre and post workout.

  13. I was talking about protein sources, not carbs.

    The carb discussion is completely different and been beaten to death.

  14. I go w/ a regular whey from GNC (got it on sale) w/ dextrose pre-WO, then BCAA's plus some other aminos during WO, then the same whey w/ low GI post-WO. Probably 70 g total from all 3.

    You think this sounds ok? The pre shake is about 20 mins before.

  15. I don't like high GI pre-workout simply because you can crash in the middle of your workout. I prefer a whole meal consisting of low-mod GI 45-60 minutes pre workout then if you need some energy before hand, some fruit is perfect.

    If you can't ge tthat meal in the a 50/50 dextrose/fructose mix is good.
    For answers to board issues, read the Suggestion and News forum at the bottom of the main page.

  16. Yeah, I know about the crash. Have felt it when I took the dex/whey shake too far in advance. But, I've got all this dex (about 8 lbs or so) left when I bought a case of 12 for high GI post-WO. So, I figure I'll get rid of it by taking 20 g pre-WO along w/ 5 g +10 g sucrose during WO.

    Anyway, thanks for the knowledge about low GI post-WO. And the CEE/HMB/Arg/Lys synergy.

    I totally agree with this. I have experimented on myself with different pre/post meals. The best that I've found (no crashes and good recovery) is if I eat a whole food meal about 1-1.5 hours pre-workout consisting of clean carbs and protein. Post workout, I've found that pounding a straight whey shake on the way home and then eating whole food about 30-60 minutes after that. If I have my metabolism in high gear, then I may even eat 15-20 minutes after a post workout shake

  18. I personally have found just a half scoop of WPI 10-20min pre with at most 10g of non-fructose carbohydrate. Usually though I prefer to totally omit the carb. But since I don't workout till the afternoon I usually already have 1 or 2 meals in me and a good amount of carbs. Post workout I also don't go high carb/glycemic. My shake consists of: 1 scoop whey, 1 banana, 2 raw eggs, natural jam (15g carb), some frozen blueberries. The carbs probably don't go higher than 40g.

    I guess what I'm saying is high GI carbs have never felt quite right to me. Having carb pre workout feels "dirty", slow in a sense. Besides, isn't it likely that part of the WPI pre will get used as glucose?

  19. Yes but why would you want that?

    I would throw some form of carb in there or just eat some fruit.

    But why would you want your WPI to be used as glucose? That stuff is expensive. Why not just use some carbs, which are cheap as hell.

  21. Because usually I would have enough glycogen/circulating glucose to serve as energy. The small amount of amino acids just act as an anticatabolic. Then, if (and I think that's a big if) I don't the amino CAN be used in place whithout the added insulin response that carbs would create. I mean, I'm talking 10-20 minutes preworkout here. Also, I wouldn't really want fruit floating around in my stomach while I'm lifting.

  22. Its pretty simple. The last time you want to limit carbs is before a workout. Its just doesn't make sense at all. The small amount of amino acids will more than likely be converted into glucose. Carbs are probably more anti-catabolic at this point. The last thing you want to do is increase gluconeogensis. Your worry about insulin release at this point really has no basis. Amino's are insulinogenic so the insulin release is happening regardless.

    Most fruits digest fairly rapidly. If you can't handle a banana or something along that lines then something is wrong. Limiting carbs before a workout just doesn't make any sense at all.

    The bottom line is that if you taking WPI with no carbs pre-workout you can bet almost 100% is being converted into glucose. Its simply is a waste of whey.

  23. Okay. I've always heard the opposite: carbs are a priority after a workout and should be limited before a workout. Since most of the WPI would get turned to sugar, does this also hold true for things like BCAA (with no carbns) supplementation? This is really interesting because, like I said, it is so different from what I'm used to hearing.

  24. Who told you that? That is completely false. Why would you ever want to limit your primary energy source before any glycogen dependent exercise? You want amino acids to be used for their real function (building blocks) not be converted in glucose as fuel. Catabolic activity will be increased if gluconeogenesis is increased and without adding any carb source pre workout that will DEFINETLY happen.

    Any amino acids will be converted into glucose if inadequate fuel sources are not present.

    Serisouly, whoever told you that no carbs pre workout is better has no idea what tehy are talking about. Adequate carbs should be maintained throughout the day to keep glycogen content adequate but more importantly should be centered around any activity to reduce catabolic activity.

  25. What do you think of the school of thought that suggests that the overall hormonal response to exercise is more important than the temporary anticatabolic effects one acheives through taking carbs preworkout? Essentialy, they say that taking carbs preworkout will limit the GH release one gets from intense training and therefore not maximize testosterone response. Have you ever read Natural Hormonal Enhancement by Rob Faigin? It talks about these things and is actually a really good read and well researched.

    Also--just to clear up my understanding of what you're saying--do you find that it is still necessary to take carbs preworkout even if the trainee has already had several meals that included carbohydrates?

  26. The hormonal responses that occur during training will happen regardless whether you take protein or carbs. It isn't going to change any results by one simple meal. Plus the GH response and testosterone response have nothing to do with each other at all.

    The whole "school of though" doesn't sound like a school at all. It sounds like fiction. I would like to see the research because the majority of these so called natural hormone books rely on taking tidbits out of context and stretching them to fit their personal beliefs. You tell someone that there is an increase in GH and they will love hearing that when in reality it has zero bearing on anything because its a simple response when energy substrate is low and insulin is low. GH is a lipolytic hormone more than anything, not an anabolic one. People think than increasing GH increases gains and it doesn't. Its a myth. Of course the GH release will increase when no carb source is present because it will create a more catabolic environment when preforming glycogen dependent exercises. TO counter this the body increases GH production to attempt to counter the increases catabolic activity. You simply don't want this condition during resistant training. Its counterproductive to any goal in bodybuilding. It makes no sense at all.

    Anyone telling you that limiting carbs pre workout is actually good for you in terms of muscle gain is simply....well I won't say it.


    You don't seem to understand that whatever you take pre-workout the eventual fate and results is predominantly glucose because of what is to performed during the workout. So what is the point of wasting protein?

    If you have a whole meal consisting of low-mod GI 45-60 minutes pre workout the need for an immediate carb source right before workout is not needed because glyocgen stores are adequate if you have a slow-mod release of energy substrate. Protein is best used with a carb, not without.

  27. As for Robert Faigin, he is carb scared and just another one of these low carb enthusiasts.


    " In order to get out of the sugar-burning mode, you must see to it that glucose is unavailable to your metabolism. This means not only incoming glucose in the form of carbohydrate, but also glucose stored inside your body as glycogen. "


    Why in the world would you EVER want that? First of all glucose will always be present in your body. Brain function relies on it and if you were without it, you'd be dead.

    Plus if you reduce your carb intake to 20g/day like he suggests dring your first 7 day peroid then guess what they fate is of about 50% of the protein you ingest? Glucose.

    But can't ketones be used in place of glucose? I'm just going off of what I read in Faigin's book. Although I'm not trying to defend his work or anything, I just find it strange that if his research (all 1500 references) really was taken out of context why would the book be endorsed by so many educated people including an entire University? I really don't know why I'm arguing with you other than for the sake of knowing about this a little more in depth.

    Bobo, you definitely deserve the title "head clown" and I mean that in a good way. Maybe you could point me in the right direction with some book recommendations?

  29. Ketones actually will be broken down into the same thing glucose will, ATP but your body will never eliminate glucose. It simply will never survive. The only other thing brain functions can operate with is manose but that is whole different subject.

    His book is nothing new. Its the same thing as any low carb advocate will say. Its simply the same old arguement. You could read every book by Lyle and get the same stuff or any book dedicated to a ketogenic diet.

    Why would people endorse something? Money.

    Now OTOH everything I have said is actually taught at EVERY University. If doens't need endorsements because its accepted fact.

    It comes down to this. What he says in a techincal aspect can be viewed as being correct but he does what so many people do. They concentrate on the minutia while forgetting about the big picture especially when it comes to bodybuilding.

    I could easily make a case why low carb diets could work. I could site every Duke University study and make the arguement sound legit. In fact, I did it for a long time but the simplt fact is that low carb diets will stall out much faster than a 40/40/20 diet. I have done it every way possible and 90% of my clients come from failed low carb diets. They can get you to a point but then fail miserably at lower bf%. Your body simply needs carbohydrates for so many functions.

  30. In fact, a good friend of mine finished 2nd in nationals about 3 months ago in Florida and he never went below 350g carbs per day. That should tell you something
