keto question on carb-up day

  1. keto question on carb-up day


    Hi, I have a few pills of glycobol left, and i also have some ALA. I was wondering if it would be beneficial to use these during my carb-up for improved insulin sensitivity, or would it be unnecessary? additionally if i were to do this, could you provide information on how I would dose it? thanks!


  2. Glycobol, Anabolic Pump, yellow gold.... They are all fantastic to take while on a ckd diet, because they move the glucose and glycogen into your muscle cells, giving you a fricken fantastic pump since you haven't had any carbs all week and your muscles really want it.

    dose it as you normally would. I think for glycobol you take two caps 15-30 mins before you eat carbs. not 100% on that tho, I use Anabolic Pump myself.

    also for what its worth, you can take gylcobol, or any of the above, the day after your carb up to help you get back into keto faster since they lower your bodys insulin response. just fyi....

  3. I really don't think it is necessary on your carb up days......your body is going to be craving those carbs and will have no problems filling your muscles with glycogen

    +1, Well I wouldnt say you body is "craving" the carbs but your insulin sensitivity will be high anyways so all the proper nuutrients will be shuttled into the muscles very efficiently.

    But, I dont think it can hurt anything if you did take them.

  5. cool thanks all for the replies, reps!
