    How many of you people truly believe that just eating the next meal on an already perfectly balanced nutrition plan, especially when you are eating every 3 hours or so day in day out, week in week out and year in and year out, is any less beneficial than eating some concoction designed for post workout? Before you answer, take into account most train one body part, depleting about 5% of the bodies glycogen reserves.

    Being 100% lifetime steroid free with over 10 firsts and 4 overalls and qualifying for a National event 4 seperate times in the NPC, I believe it makes ABSOLUTELY no difference....Then again I'm probably one of the only ones on here that use a glucometer to determine the height of blood sugar peak to determine the amount of insulin thats called upon.......I'm also one of the only ones on here that understands the amount of insulin secreted according to blood sugar readings as well as how much insulin is needed according to the level of glycogen depletion/reserves, so this may not be a fair question for 99% of you people.....

    If you do not have an avatar or post any pics your answers will be null and void and considered spam.....The proof is in the pudding and most call me TAPIOCA!

    Curious question......Since GLUtamine is used by the liver to make GLUcose AFTER its reserves are used to replenish blood sugar DURING a workload, how does it benefit the body AFTER a workout? I can see how BCAA's would but GLUtamine has no application following a workout...Not to mention that only under severe carb restricted conditions would the liver ever need to make its own GLUcose from GLUtamine and under normal carb intake conditions where the liver is always above 90% capacity, it would be money basically flushed down the toilet....

    I understand quite well, actually. Lift alotta weight and eat alotta food.

    But, really........................there's so much to know that one person can never truly know everything, especially since most people respond differently to similar compounds.

    Just like radiation can cause or cure cancer, there are NO absolutes in medicine or physiology, only baselines.

    That's why physicians PRACTICE medicine, not perform it.

    FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Someone who knows the secret.......Eating like a scientist with some calculated timed eating plan may be good for weight loss but to gain pure unadulterated muscle, this will never work UNLESS there are other contributing factors like ANABOLICS that are the real catalyst to the growth.

    Everybody complicates shit. There's a thread about freezing your orals and people are acually doing it. I mean, really.

    Light is the number one degrading factor for pharmaceuticals, be it supplement or prescription..........long as you don't leave it in your glove compartment in an Orlando parking lot in the middle of a hot August day.

    Freezing Epistane. Talk about fucking stupid.

    But, yeah real food's the way to go. The great ones always knew that..............no matter what the supplement companies were payin 'em.

    My post workout nutrition consists of 2 scoops of Whey + 1 scoop of Casein and Haribo Gummy Bears.

    For anyone interested, here is a discussion of chocolate milk post workout versus other (formulated) options:

    From reading I was under the impression that your blood sugar was low after a hard workout, so taking some sort of carb and a fast acting protein like whey would shuttle nutrients into your muscles in a faster manner than just eating a meal?

    Not necessarily. You will still get an insulin response from just plain whey.
