  1. great thread


    this has been a very informative thread.

    had some buckwheat pancakes with honey & cottage cheese for breakfast this morning.

    had a fantastic back, chest & ab workout 2 hours later with 20 minutes of cardio and i felt like i could've done the workout again.
    loads of energy left!!

    around 30 minutes later i got home had a shower then my shake (egg whites, whey, oats & honey) & 3 hours later salmon & broccolli.

    feel fantastic now & everythings sitting good in my stomach.

  3. Bobo or who ever, how does Yohimbine play into this since it helps in the release FFA's? I heard that Yohimbine would be best to use pre-workout. After reading this thread i am wondering why it would.

  4. Yohimbine, Ephedrine, Norephedrine, Synephrine, etc....all helps in releasing and oxidizing fats. Yohimbine has an added benefit of targeting Alpha 2 receptors which is predominatly the "stubborn" fat but also increase water retention so you have to remember that when judging its effectiveness.

  5. everything i've read on yohimbe says it works best on a low carb diet.

    i wouldn't be able to explain why though. i might leave that to Bobo.

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

  6. 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.
  7. A great source of MCT's


    Coconut Oil !

    It has recently become an everyday part of my supplentation.

    Flax and Coconut Oils.......

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

    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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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....

  19. 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?

  21. 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?

  23. Nutrition 200 Section 14 about 4 years ago

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