First off I’d like to thank Cam Aka chedapalooza for giving me the opportunity to run an am log for HPScience Shielded Stack.

The stack includes Glycoshield and Liposhield. For those who know me, have followed my am logs or have seen the decadence of my eating habits over in my ig account, you know that GDA’s are a staple for me. Let’s be honest you just can’t eat the amount of donuts in particular like I eat and not look like my old 355 lb self.

I’ve used virtually all of the GDA’s available on the market and I have my favorites, but from all the diehard GdA users I’ve spoken with all pretty much agree that the OG Recompadral was the king of GDA’s. And per the thread, recompadrol is back, I’m super psyched to see if this dethrones the two GDA’s I go back and forth with. Also included in the stack is liposhield which is a product that helps you burn fat and prevent the accumulation of new fat.

Currently I’m transitioning from a heavy bulk into a cut. This period will probably last for 8 more weeks before I go fully into cut mode. I’ll be hanging out in the 100-250 surplus range in this time frame, which is technically still bulking protocol but I look at this range as recomp as I’ve been at 1000-1200 for the past while. I still eat all the crazy stuff I’ve been eating just at a more economical rate than before.

I transitioned my program to a 4-6,6-8,8-10,10-12 weekly schedule and after only being almost done with my second cycle of this programming I can already see amazing strength gains.

That’s just a bit about my workouts, which I’ll include daily and I’ll give a daily macro recap and where I used the GDA and how many. What’s really nice is that cam took out the guess work that you sometimes have to play around with with gdas in that he breaks dosages down right on the product description so if you’re eating under 50c it’s this amount, between 50-75 this amount so forth.

Will be starting this as soon as they arrive but just wanted to whet everyone’s appetite a bit before this gets going. And for those who dig food porn, yeah you’ll get some for sure.

Were waiting for me when I got home today. Tomorrow might be a rest day but cool thing with these products are that you use them whenever you eat high carb or have cheat days. Will take first dose of liposhield tomorrow but wasn’t expecting this to arrive so fast, he sent it Monday. I still have a few capsules of my open bottle of another gda which will def be gone tomorrow, so depending on how the day goes may start with my evening snack tomorrow or at latest first dose will be Friday.

Well the other day I ate lunch and then played on the phone for about 30 min and then went to make a sandwich and my mother said you’re not full after that huge bowl of soup. I actually forgot I ate it lol.

Well wound up getting to a be gym anyhow, didn’t think it’d happen but it did.

In the 12 rep range week

Squat 3x12 205,215,220

Box squat 3x12 225,245,265

Sumo dl 5x12 135,225,315,315,275

Stiff leg dl 3x12 225

Calf raises off plates 3x12 185,205,205

Seated calf raises 3x15 50 lbs
I do these very slowly with pauses at peak and base

All my major lifts have dramatically increased since beginning this new program but I have to admit I hate the 12 rep range week for legs. just takes so much out of me and I’m just shellacked when all is said and done. But very pleased with the strength gains so far.

I took two scoops of liposhield in my morning cold coffee. It’s flavorless but I did find it to somewhat alter the taste, not bad but kinda dampened the flavor a bit.

Not sure if others experienced the same thing with this product but I’m typically a beast when it comes to food, and my appetite was absolutely invisible all day. The only other time I experienced any suppression like this is when I first used radiate. But I was able to force feed myself but today I really couldn’t, did wind up downing a few extra shakes just to keep the calories respectable. Was not expecting such a dominant suppression. After reading some others and their appetite increases with glycoshield I’m hopeful that it’ll offset this zero appetite I experienced today.

If you’re in a full on cut and the appetite suppression is like this all the time that’s amazing but I’m in the slight bulk/recomp stage right now and today as it currently stands I’ll be like 1200 deficit. Hoping that I’ll be able to down some cookies leftover from the holidays tonight. That’ll eat up about 1k calories and get me to where I want.

But again if this is the ongoing experience with liposhield just from a hunger control standpoint it’s a home run.

But despite not being hungry energy levels were astonishingly on par with other days.

Gonna try it pre workout next time either tomorrow or Saturday haven’t felt used which will be rest day yet. Should get to cracking glycoshield open tomorrow. I have a meter but I actually have to learn how to use it, it was my grandmothers and it’s kind of technical looking, probably simple though

Lipøshield will be super helpful to those on a cut from an appetite suppression standpoint and will free up fatty acids to be burned as fuel throughout the day and during your workouts

The combo of lipo and glyco should definitely offset some of the appetite suppression. I follow IF and I’ve found myself feeling hunger pains again after YEARS of doing intermittent fasting... so Glycøshield will increase hunger, but you don’t have to worry about those extra calories adding any unwanted weight. They’re all gonna go to muscle.

Great start here. Looking forward to donut pics

So today I woke up around 11 and took my fasting blood glucose



I then dropped 2 scoops of liposhield into a ghost pb cereal milk shake. Again taste a bit different than usual but just a bit duller, not bad at all.

Went out did some things and grabbed a pb sandwich and some rice cakes at a buddies house I was help edit a book he’s working on.

Got home around 1ish and dropped a single scoop into my preworkout, modern pre, something I’ve used hundreds of times. No real noticeable alteration of taste with 1 scoop.

Got to the gym and had a nice workout

Bb floor press 3x12 135,150,160

Clean and press 3x12. 95

Ss
Landmine single raises 3x12. 45, 45+5, 45+10 plates
Landmine double raises. Same

Plate loaded incline press 3x12 25,50,75 per side

Side lateral raises 3x12 20,25,25

Incline db fly 3x12 20,25,30

Db pullover 3x12 90 lbs

Started to do abs looked out at the ice storm going on and said to myself f it and left bc I wanted to make sure it didn’t get any worse and prevent me from getting my darn donuts

Taking 4 caps glycoshield around 8 pm then around 830 eating 2 Paula’s donuts, the most anabolic substance on earth, and another 2 scoops of liposhiekd in a peppermint ghost shake. Around 1045 I’ll take another blood glucose reading and see the results.

In terms of appetite suppression this is pretty crazy bc as u can see from the opening of this post, all I had between 11 and 3 pm when I had my post workout shake was a shake, a pb sandwich and a rice cakes. I should’ve been freaking starving based on knowing myself but I had to just eat dinner even though I really wasn’t hungry. For those people who have trouble curbing their appetite I can tell you after 2 days this stuff is legit af in that regards.

I’ll update the results of the post Paula’s reading either later tonight or tomorrow

Ok decided in going with 3 caps instead of four, waited 25 minutes and then I ate these bad boys



Waited 2 hours and redid blood glucose reading



So my fasting level this am was 84 and now it’s 106 two hours post eating these donuts.

I’m not that knowledgeable about where levels should be so I did a little research and I found out that for someone in the 100-200 lb range 1 gram of carbs equates to about 5 mg/dl in blood glucose readings. And typical normal readings 2 hours post eating would be in the 70-140 mg/dl range

So if baseline is 84 and 2 hr post is 106

Does this equate to those two donuts only wound up accounting for roughly 5 grams of carbs plus whatever that number would’ve normally degraded to over the same time frame under normal conditions.

If this thought process is correct that would mean that all the rest of the blood sugar spike gained from the carbs in these donuts were absorbed into cells instead of stored in adipose tissue. Again I’m not positive if I’m breaking the analysis down correctly.

Wonder what the reading would’ve been with four caps instead of 3.

I should also note, that the am reading was a breeze but the one just now was difficult as fir whatever reason the blood wouldn’t draw, had to adjust the pin to a higher setting two additional times before I could get the required amount of blood for the meter to register.

I’ll try the meter out again in the am and then have a single Paula’s donut with 2 caps and see how that pans out.

Anyone more knowledgeable please chime in as I’d love to learn where my thought process is off as to my analysis or to confirm my thoughts on the matter

Not sure what all of this means, but just to be safe you should send all donuts to me for proper disposal. Just to be safe.

I won’t do this often but for those who may do low carb/Keto and wonder how Glycøshield will affect your blood sugar.. I just ate a 1650 calorie meal... see below

Those donuts look awesome

As far as your question I'm not 100% sure. I can't answer that question with certainty thy it's X amount of carbs from the donuts. Not sure you can extrapolate from that to be honest but maybe there's some research somewhere I help that I have not read and would enjoy seeing

Your body will use and absorb everything needed over time . But your baseline levels are required to maintain daily processes so you need X amount in blood. Once it drops below a certain level your body will begin to create ketones

As far as the sticking for readings just make sure you drink enough water

Well I’ve been informed by a friend what I should looking for and a way to interpret the data.

What we are looking for is the quickest return to at/or below baseline. The quicker we can get to that point the better we are absorbing the carbs.

So two hours post reading last night of 2 donuts where I had 3 caps the reading was still elevated 2 hours post consumption by 22 mg/dl means that I didn’t get what I wanted.

Today’s experiment with 2 caps and 1 donut was still elevated going from 88 to 103. So a 15 mg/dl elevation from baseline.




This information contrasts almost every other readings I’ve seen and I’ve been told that it’s most likely due to the high levels of fat content in the donuts plus an unknown number of carbs, while I estimated each to be around 100 carbs I very easily could’ve underestimated just how much sugar is in each donut. The difference between 2 donuts and 3 caps or 1.5 caps per donut vs 2 caps for one donut equates to a half cap improvement of 7 mg/dl. Eventually I’ll try 1 donut with 4 caps. The reason I’m playing around with the effect upon donuts is that I literally eat them all the time and I find it a leverage point in knowing how many caps it’ll take to do what we want it to do.

In any case though, despite the post readings being elevated I’m confident they would’ve been greatly elevated with out including the glycoshield into the formula.

I’m going to test vs carbs where values are known going forward. I’ll still be playing around with donut and baked goods to try and hone in on a cap number for me. But I’ll stick to 2 caps at different levels of known carbs for the most part.

Spot on. Comments here. We want to know first what is baseline, then where you end up after the meal. When testing, its crucial to know exact carb/sugar content as well as fat content. More fat=slower digestion/absorption of carbs. For this reason, we included the HCA, which helps to an extent. That being said, its still great feedback with the donuts because let’s face it, not very many of us are going to eat a meal that is strictly carbs... we want to enjoy life and unless we’re in a strict contest prep phase, its just not realistic to consume a carbohydrate only meal. I am also confident in your statement that without Glycøshield those glucose meter readings would have been much different.

Perhaps you’d consider two donuts without taking Glycøshield as a way to get a baseline? But I understand if you don’t want to risk that lol.

Since 2 capsules seems to be the sweet spot for about 75-100g of carbs (minus unknown fat content) I think for your donut purposes, 4 capsules will be noticeably more effective than 3. 4+ Caps is getting up into clinical doses for most of the actives.

Since most will use 4-6 capsules per day, this is why we dosed it how we did. You don’t necessarily want to hit Clinical dosages of berberine for example in a single sitting (unless utilizing for a large cheat)
Spread out through 12-16 hours is a different story and again, is reasoning behind why we formulated it in the amounts we did.

A reading of 103 after consuming that kind of food is very good in my opinion, considering the obesity / diabetes epidemic in our country, if people can eat two DECADENT donuts and still remain in very healthy BG levels, id call that a big win.

Ok cpl bits of feedback

Took that reading above, the 103. Took 1 cap and made a sandwich

Didn’t take a picture bc who really wants to see a pic of a turkey sandwich lol. I will going forward if anyone really needs their sandwich porn tho

2 slices of grocery store white bread. Normally I go with either the artisan or the whole wheat but seeing white breads is more simple I went with that. 4 oz of lean turkey breast(wegmans just turkey) which is like the name suggests, no preservatives or anything extra. 1 carrot stick. And a glass of ghost pb whey. 4.5 fat 37 carbs and 46 protein

Did some writing and waited for the two hours to expire. Did another reading



So not sure how I should read this. If I’m comparing to morning faster reading it’s still elevated by 2 mg/dl. But if I use the last reading taken the 103 it dropped 13 mg/dl. I’m thinking u go off the most recent but again not positive.

Then I took two caps and ate some sweet potato pie for preworkout meal. I didn’t do a reading bc I felt as if it would’ve been skewed by the exercise effect. In any case it felt good muscles got full very quickly. I’d say I had a solid lat pump after the very first set. I didn’t take permaswole as I typically do to gauge the pump and I subbed the modern pre I’ve been using this week for a k cup. The muscle fullness was very nice considering it was just that. I’d say using a pump pre is longer lasting post workout and to perhaps even a deeper effect but getting the extra benefit from a product your using for something else, and getting a quality pump at the same time is simply gravy.

The workout

Straight arm pulldown 35x35 slow very slow with pauses here and their, typically at thigh level.

1 arm row. 4x12 35, 100x3

Db bent over row 3x12 50,60,60

Db shrugs 35x20,75x15,30x25,80x15

Standing db rear fly 3x15 20,25,30

Vbar pulldown 3x12 100,120,140

1 arm straight arm pulldown 20x15,15x20

Plate loaded low rows 3x12 45,90,135 per side

1 arm smith shrug 3x12 95 lbs

Had a few more things written down but just decided to skip biceps and calves today

I’ll update if I do another reading tonight

Oh hunger control still strong with liposhield. Really can’t figure a way to quantify the rest of the benefits other then check the scale at the end of a week of use.

Another user has last 6 pounds in the past week Despite increasing daily carbs from 225 to 275

If you’re eating every 2-4 hours I wouldn’t expect to see a large drop at 2 Caps. More so will get readings like you are which show us that Glycøshield is effective at managing carbs and blood glucose rather than completely wiping it out. You’re getting the management benefits so you can eat more, and more frequently, workout the associated spikes (and accompanying fat gain) this is what we are looking for!

Last night I ate these:



I begrudgingly ate them without using any caps. Two hours later. Boom reading of 124. Unfortunately the urge hit hard and I had to run to the bathroom, by the time I got back my dad was using it. I looked to see if I could recover it but no dice.

Anyhow to that note I have noticed an increase in frequency having to use the bathroom. I hadn’t mentioned it bc tbh often with new ingredients my stomach acts up and this happens then settles down. But most weight loss supps do this to me. I’d never had Garcinia before so could be that but it’s just something I thought I’d mention.

Woke up reading was at 90. Took 4 caps



Ate another coconut angel cream



Two hours later reading of 98



So my donut report:

2 donuts 3 caps +22 mg/dl
1 donut 2 caps +15 mg/dl
2 donuts no caps +34 mg/dl
1 donut 4 caps +8 mg/dl

So even though levels are still elevated you can see that glycoshield does make a difference. I’m not doing any more testing with donuts, I’ll just use 4 caps when I eat one or two bc if the level was slightly elevated with 4 caps and 1 donut it’ll certainly be elevated at 2 doubts 4 caps. I’m ok with that bc I’ve now verified my assumption that even though rates stay elevated you are gaining decreased mg/dl compared to not using.

Did some ab work and about 10 minutes light treadmill ate a ham sandwich 29 carbs 2 caps

Waited redid the reading and got an 83



That’s a pretty darn good drop 15 mg/dl. I really don’t think with what I did ab work and light 10 minutes of cardio affected much but just noting it to consider.

Took 2 more caps and had 2.5 cups of Tuscan soup. Thus stuff is the bomb btw. Totals for meal 10fat 60 carb 25 protein



I’ll do a final reading for the night in a cpl hours

With the increased cap usage I definitely feel the hunger offsetting the suppression from the liposhield big time.

It’s only been a 4 days on liooshield and 3 with glycoshield and I’ve been at surplus all but that first day. Wound up around 400 deficit that day but Friday Saturday I was laughably in surplus territory roughly 1300 and 1150. And these numbers are counting the donuts at macros that are probably low. Today I’ll be in the 900+ surplus range. Despite this gluttonous binging I’ve been doing, feasting on decadent donuts and the like I’m actually 3 down from Thursday am. A lot of that might be from the increased trips I’ve been having but not all of it especially in this kind of surplus. Very interested now to see what that scale weight will be on Thursday am this week. Again I’m not cutting yet, but if this is working like this it’s prob water and fat, can’t be lbm at a surplus bc protein levels have been above 1.25 every day. So recomp away.

Woke up and did a faster reading



An interesting thing I’m noting is that each morning after eating donuts my morning blood glucose level has risen each day. I’m curious how high it would’ve been had i not been using glycoshield. As I’ve already illustrated, glycoshield doesn’t completely baseline the donuts but substantially reduced the levels as to compared when not using glycoshield. So with that in mind I’m positive that my levels upon fasting would’ve astronomically risen without glycoshield instead they just modestly rose.

I had 4 caps with another donut for breakfast



I didn’t do a reading as I was out but also I did a 4 cap reading with a donut yesterday.

Worked out

Ate another two cups of the Tuscan soup I had yesterday

Did a reading a little under two hours after eating



So it dropped 7 mg/dl from fasting levels but seeing it rose slightly yesterday from the donut it probably dropped about 15 mg/dl. This seems pretty consistent to what it dropped yesterday as well

Just finished a 64 gram carb meal. Took 2 caps 20 minutes prior and will test another reading later.

Tonight I had another cup of Tuscan soup and a Reuben I made so I know exactly the caloric counts. The meal did have a high fat content 44 grams sonill be interested in how the reading goes bc I think it’s important to note foods that do have fat, as most do, especially cheat meals.



All I’m eating for my evening snack tonight is a bowl of fat free yogurt with some no sugar added peaches and with a 15g carb count I won’t be using any caps with this.

Just a note: while I have fun with my food, some people have messaged me, especially on ig, how the hell do I eat like that and still stay lean. Well I’ll let the cat out of the bag, while I still eat very well most days of the week, these high calorie snacks I wanna eat, baked goods, donuts, cookies in particular I typically only do that 2-3 nights a week. I guess that’s not a secret to staying lean but it works, it especially works great when I’m cutting and add in 20-30 min of cardio each day and a thermogenic to the mix, which btw I think I’m gonna basically run this stack with radiate and perhaps defuse fir my initial cut this year. I really like what I’ve seen from glycoshield to this point and I’m not gonna name the others I’ve used religiously before, but this is topping the list right now. And liposhield just seems to be doing its thing in the background, unnoticed on a daily but despite hitting crazy surpluses lbs seem to be dropping consistently. There may be a plateau effect as would be expected but so far so great.

My workout today

It was actually pretty short for a leg day but I have issues with crowds and it was the most crowded I’ve ever seen today. This goes to show how removed from daily life I’ve become but I had no idea today was a holiday, probably would’ve hit a pure rest day if I knew how jammed it’d be in there. But did get some stuff in

Squat. 6x6. 45,135,225,240x3

It’s a slight progression from my last 6 rep week but based on my 10 and 12 rep weeks it should’ve been about 5-10 lbs higher.

Sumo dl. 6x6. 135,225,315,335,340,315.

Same note as with squats

Leg press 2x25 270,450. 720x10
Calf press 2x20 270,450 720x8

Not how I wanted to do these today. But three dudes let me work in and for some reason they jumped up from 450-720. I went to take plates off and the one dude started freaking out about it so I just went with the 720. Was gonna go for 540x25/20 for calves. It was stupid as I wasn’t asking them to take the plates off and I would’ve put them back but hey they let me work in so can’t complain I guess.

Occlusion training
Band leg curls 30,15,25
Tibia raises 30,20,20

My original plan had romans and leg extensions plus another calf exercise but I just couldn’t take the crowd so just ended it there

Will update later with another reading

very detailed log...im getting interested in glycoshield.

I'm curious how this would treat someone with low blood glucose-me, lol.
