  1. Over on Lyle board he says to take .2mg/kg of TBW and 200mg of cafeine 30-60 mins before cardio. I will start a new thread on this.

  2. A great source of MCT's


    Coconut Oil !

    It has recently become an everyday part of my supplentation.

    Flax and Coconut Oils.......

  3. Yes but tell me why coconut oil is good? If you do, you win a cookie (no carb of course).

  5. coconut oil stimulates the thyroid???

    actually Bobo, what is your background behind all your knowledge?

    Jag

    Oral Yohimbine does not react very well to any increase in blood insulin levels. Its best to take on an exmpty stomach and another reason transdermal is favorored.

    The backround to my knowledge? The absolute love of this sport and lifestyle. I did take collge courses as electives but my formal degrees have nothing to do with this at all.

    depends on the oil, the extra virgin stuff smells like coconut and has a slight coconut taste. It pretty much looks like crisco when its in the tub, I think it melts at 75 degrees. I just started using it, it tastes better than flax, but not as good as the cinnamon flavour flax, the hard part is getting use to the texture.

  9. Coconut is is good because it half MCT (I love MCT's and DAG). Just don't add it to cold water the oil turns hard quick.

  11. How do you guys use your coconut oil? I absolutely hate the taste of coconut, but if I could find a way to use it and not get the taste, I'd be pretty happy.

  12. does this mean coconut MILK is a good thing or not?

    i know it's high fat, but does it have the same %age of MCT oil's as coconut oils?

    i make some pretty good thai currys myself. it would be good to know if coconut milk has high MCT's.

    I mix it with my morning protien shake..
    I melt 4 tablespoons of coconut oil (virgin) then I add green tea to it...

    60 grams of whey protien mixed with Hood low carb milk 4 eggbeaters and uncooked oatmeal and wheat germ.Combine all this to make one super nutritous 80 gram protien shake....

  14. Now, to expand further on YHCL and insulin... let's say you ingest some YHCL and then consume a meal with carbs in it, enough to create a moderate insulin spike. Will the Y resume its effects after the insulin spike has 'settled down'? Or is it a done deal after that?

    Damn, I think I worded this question terribly. But it's early, and hopefully someone will get what I'm trying to ask.

    I see where you got your name, Madman! If I drank that, I think I'd puke! How does it taste/go down?

    Do you have the macro breakdown off hand?

  16. This topic about what to eat pre/post cardio has been such a topic of debate for me lately. There is so much out there it is so tough to know what to believe. I have heard in the past and was always under the impression that spiking your insulin before a cardio workout was bad. I read somewhere...I believe on BB.com (But who knows who wrote it) that spiking your insulin releases cortisol into your body which blocks fat from being used as your energy source. Which would mean if you had a gatorade right before cardio, that you would only be burning the sugars you just put into your body, instead of burning fat.

    However, I recently purchased "nutrition Timing" specifically because of all this confusion Ive had. I have talked to multiple trainers, and they all have different answers. The book says that spiking your insulin curbs the rise of cortisol. And cortisol is a catabolic hormone. So spiking your insulin would reduce muscle breakdown during cardio. It also says that spiking your insulin greatly improves protein synthesis when taking in sugars and protein simultaneously, which is a good thing.

    So someone answer this question from hell for me. damnit, lol. I generally do cardio seperate from lifting, generally in the morning, or early afternoon time. So...do I want to take in simple carbs to spike my insulin and curb cortisol like "Nutrition Timing" says? Or do I want to take in only protein, (thinking that it will help reduce muscle catabolism and burn mostly fat? Since Ive heard in the past that spiking insulin blocks fat from being used for your energy.) or do I take in some complex carbs so that my insulin isnt spiked, but I have some energy. What the hell is the damn answer, lol? Someone let me know and throw some proof behind it if you got it. And to help out. My main goal for the cardio is to reduce stored fat. I am trying to get my damn BF% down. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Bobo, this is interesting stuff. Can you point to any studies on this?

  18. Nutrition 200 Section 14 about 4 years ago

    Its just basic nutrition. The body uses all sources, all the time.

    I tried Lipo -Y on my midsection but results weren't great for me.

  20. I've used it before and it worked pretty well but my caloric deficit was pretty large at the time. They seem to work better that way but then you can run inot a host of other problems following that type of diet.

  21. adrenalinaddict,

    i'm with you in the pre, post nutrition thing. there's so many theories but i think we can all agree that when it comes to the human body sometimes these theories can be thrown out the window.

    i'll add that i'm a meso-endo (body type).....i think!!!!! i have no trouble putting on size but have a hard time getting that hard look.
    but i'm 6"1 so i can disguise it well.

    i tried what i said i was going to do in my opening post & didn't get the results i'd thought.
    this week i'm trying a whey only shake 30-60 minutes before my workout with 2000mg of Vit.C which is very good for reducing cortisol.
    i'm going to add egg whites to this next week. no fat at all around w/o time.

    i found a solid meal doesn't sit good after the w/o so a shake is the better option for me. whey, egg whites, oats & honey tastes really good, sits great in my stomach & keeps me full for at least 1 1/2 - 2 hours later.
    i think the oats stop the rapid gastric emptying so the shake digests slightly slower...........i think!!! but like i said it's still very confusing to me!!!

    anyway this seems to be working well for me. carbs & fats are kept low for the rest of the day but i have no limit on fibre or protein. all the fats i need come with the meat protein i'm eating so i don't go out of my way to add more.......except for fish oil caps.

    every 4 days i eat really high glycemic carbs & small amounts of protein for a whole day. this is something i've also just started & is working great.
    on that day i feel bloated & fat but the next day i'm full & strong. i tried a complex day with lousy results.

    also getting great results using SwoleV2. i don't rave about supps much but this stuff is great.

  22. Don't forget to add the dextrose to those post WO shakes! Why you ask? Wellllll let me tell you:

    Dextrose preferentially replaces muscle glycogen whereas other simple sugars preferentially replace liver glycogen. Thus the dextrose is best for shuttling nutrients to your burnt out muscles.

    I have studies laying around and I'll add them if anyone wants to double check me but I think this is a pretty well covered subject.

    and a well debated topic between low and high GI carb as well bro.
    Sage

  24. Indeed I did a bit more reading after posting that and stumbled across the "discussion" (if it can be called that, swolecat performed a rather lame defense) between swolecat and Bobo over High GI vs Low GI.

    I apologize, I haven't been here long and haven't had much time to search through all the threads; I came over from the Avant Labs forums where I've lurked for around a year. I like it a little better here though due to getting quicker responses to my questions... a more active community or regulars, perhaps?

    P.s.-Bobo please don't rip me a new one, I will search for those studies but from what I have seen I doubt it is anything new to you. I will definitely have to research this topic further as I currently consume around 30g dex pre and 30g post.

  25. Bobo what do you think of this article by Zeppelin (owner of proteincustomizer.com and blackstarlabs.com I believe):

    http://www.avantlabs.com/magmain.php...ID=5&pageID=66

    He believes the best method is to bracket a 50/50 mix of malto and dextrose around one's workout. He posts a plethora of studies... I will go through them later when I have time. If only I could get paid for scouring pubmed all day in search of bodybuilding information... sigh, in a perfect world

    I'll try again... anybody have some insight on this? Hate to go off topic, but this thread has been all over the place anyways.

    TheUsual,

    welcome here.

    i devoted a lot of time to experiment with this pre, during & post w/o nutrition buisness just to sort it out once & for all...............for myself.

    i was armed with a lot of info including Zeppilins "pre, during, post w/o nutrition" article. my conclusion was that all the dex & malto just made me FAT.

    this maybe good for some who just want mass/FAT (or ectomorphs) but my idea of bodybuilding is to look good ALL the time. i actually just dumped the rest of my dex & malto in the bin & stocked up natural honey (i'm fortunate to know someone with bees ) & oats.

    the results i'm getting speak for themselves. Bobo was the one who got me thinking about the oats & it worked well.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Yes, I definitely want to research it further, and I definitely respect Bobo's opinions from what I've seen of his posts so far. Right now I am bulking so it does not play quite as large of a role, but when I start cutting in a month, I will definitely not want to be using dex if it is unneccessary and hindering my fat loss. Besides, Honey and oats taste better

  29. what do people think of a supp. like muscle milk post-workout (for cutting or bulking).

    the CW is that pw shake should be protein and carbs, however MM has protein, relatively low carbs, and a substantial fat portion (albeit mostly "good" fats)

    based on the CW i would hesitate to make it my post w/o shake, but any thoughts on this?
