    I watch your video on YouTube on how you carbed up nick and you did kind of the same, you carbed him up wed then Thursday with half the carbs. did you do that so he can make weight or regardless you would've still followed that protocol ?

    Thanks
    I actually gambled a little with Nick Cortese ,,,, since he was already over weight and I risked the carb load adding more weight onto him (which it did) Luckily we had oil EARLY saturday morning to dry him out.

    I think carbing early is a wise idea for ALOT of people,,,, more so for naturally lean guys and guys who can stay dry very easily, as in they just genetically have lower fat cell count.

    Never have a specific protocol -- I would try to NOT use it if possible. using the minimum if at all.

    I am releasing a topical diuretic that is very potent --- it made em drop 8 lbs in 2 days from twice a day applications,

    I will have 2 formula's ---(VasoDry) and a Pro version that is 20% more diuretic actives and regular which is normal saturation, but won't have any potential skin reaction or warming effect which some people do not like

I just worry a little because I haven't used it since 10 weeks out.

    I typically only use after sucking someone down to a lower weight class ,,, then needing to hyper-fill them out rapidly.

    Ultimately I rather not have them in the gutter so low to really have a need for it. Its a weapon in the tackle box, but not always needed, more not, than often.

    I would need to have seen how you react all through prep.

    I would need to see pics of you at start of prep

    I would need to know the diet you ate prior to going zero carbs

    I would need to know daily activities and cardio and training intensity etc...

    Its very hard to give a accurate or even close to ball park type answer...

This year, I've decided to use the method of drying up and carbing up with low sodium carbs and reintroducing sodium/carb/fats 3 hours before pj. I actually did a similar method like this way back in 2004 and it worked (sorta). It was more of a shitload and I went dumb and added water at an inopportune time. I also bloated because I thought shitloading was a free for all.. Lesson leaned. I Floated away... But for a wee moment I was stupid shredded. My question for you Matt is about the low sodium carbs after water is turned off. Rice cakes, (baked) red potatoes, (dry) steel cut oats and I think you made a mention one time of having low sodium, breakfast bars. I've looked and looked but have not seen you recommendation of fat content on these carbs... As well as water content of these carbs. Obviously we wouldn't want to add water to the oats, and not boil the potatoes.. I get that.. (Other than dry steel cut oats are gonna suck eating), but do you have any recommendations of other types of sodium free/low carbs? Does the fat content need to be low or will the far help slow down the insulin sensitivity and absorption? And lastly, any thoughts on a piece of fruit to fill up liver glycogen so the rest of the carbs get into the muscle? GDA usage, yes or no? (You've answered this but for the life of me I can't find it)
    I am going to work around 300g carbs and work from there (slowly). Thank you... Appreciate the excellent posts!
    I am now not totally convinced about being paranoid about "dry carbs" or carbs with moisture.... The body and musculature in its entirety is very large and the minor moisture in cooked rice or cooked oats will not be detrimental to subcutaneous tissues.

    The key is to be lean enough, and have the water in a diuresis , dissipating flow....as you overshoot (hopefully at least 8-12 hours of water abstinence ) then you should be very good to go for carb introduction.

    Fruit ,,, sure a little bit won't hurt, but I assure you glycogen will be loaded into muscles readily --- liver might store 65-100g tops,,, and that is quite easy to accomplish.

    Hey Matt,

    What would your thoughts be in regards to holding a lot of upper back fat?

    My sub scap pinch measures 10.3mm where as my lower back pinches around 4.4mm

    Could this be genetics/insulin related or cortisol related? currently 5 weeks out from a show and just ordered some of your Vasoburn which i am going to try and utilize

    Thanks for your time!

    Ben

    Certainly is the opposite of most!!!!

    Christmas tree below , with a blurry non-crisp upper? Rare indeed.

    Its certainly a genetic fat cell deposition and it will just be your personal "sweet spot" that will be what takes forever on you.

    Slather vasoburn all over the upper back,, I believe you'll need someone to do so for you since that would be impossible on your own.

    Keep us posted how you do in it

    Post pics too and I will evaluate

    Hi Matt,

    Greatly appreciate you taking the time to respond

    Your answer is what i expected and something that will take numerous shows to figure out or as simple as diet harder

    The vaso burn should arrive any day now and will have my partner apply it for me i will use it prior to cardio and prior to bed if this is a good idea?

    Hopefully the picture attached correctly and you can let me know what you think, i am going for my second show

    Regards

    Ben

    Not sure what the front and side shots look like but overall I see you just needing to keep getting leaner everywhere. You'll do it and be good, just keep grinning hard and forget scale weight and push separation and skin thinness.

    I believe the VasoBurn will help tremendously

    thanks Matt from and side is nothing to boast about like any of your clients

    This has been one long prep for me as i started dieting April 2015 was supposed to compete in October but couldn't come in lean enough. I have a extremely stubborn body when it comes to losing body fat and require a extended period of time on low calories/carbs with a decent amount of cardio. All up will be nearly 40 weeks worth of prep.

    I will keep pushing hard and utilize the vasoburn and hope to report back some good feedback

    thank you for your time

    Keep up with the new VLOGS enjoyed the first episode mate!

    Ok cool thanks man. I respect what he's doing, it's not easy. I'd venture to say that most of us have some mental issues that do this.

    Yes , As FLIP pasted the link -- I go into the details of why I am going a new direction.

    My health is good besides genetically high BP on top of the anabolic and GH I used further exacerbated it.

    Its actually HYPOtension now and I am lowering the dose by the week, so I am happy about that

    Follow my series and you will get clued into exactly what is going on

    Hi Matt, i am glad i found this thread. it is how i spend my lunch breaks at work lately!( or just during work ) great info!

    i made it to page 80 but just had to post something now.

    what is your opinion on something like Ultimate diet 2.0 for a natural to get lean? ( 10% now )

    i've been doing something i found on this forum to "prime"for a cycle like UD 2.0
    the cycle goal is to cut / recomp

    i want to use UD 2.0 as a diet protocol? will this be effective >?

    i enjoy the way its set up. i move the power workout to friday during carb up because i have to play sports (professional ) on saturday
    the carb up gives me energy for both


    thank you
