  • Diabetic help

    I have been working out ever since I was in 7th grade for football and Track and was a track guy in college, but I was diagnosed a type one diabetic about 5 years ago. I am 31 years old, I have been hitting the gym pretty hard for about 1 year now and put on about 40 pounds of "Foggy" muscle the size is coming pretty easy but does anyone have any idea how being a diabetic may change the peremeters of what I should be doing? I try to look for suppliments with low sugar content and low carbs. I know insuline is a highly anabolic substance so I want to be careful. I use to lift for speed and explosiveness now I just want to look good naked and on the beach, any suggestions? Sorry if this seems like a lot of information, any help would be appreciated.

    I am 6'3" and 248 lbs with (at last doctors measurement) 18% body fat

    -I currently take creatine, 15grms a day, one dose in A.M. and another after my workout.
    -Protien - I have about 20 grams in the morning and I eat large portion of chicken for lunch and have about 25 grams at 10:00 and again at 3:00. After my workout another 30 grams.

    I have tried to keep it real simple and perhaps that is what needs to change, I might need to make some changes, thanks for reading all of this if you did.

    Hey Riff, I was diagnosed last year and basically had to condition myself to cut the carbs way back. How many carbs are you taking in each day ? Calories as well? I started out on insulin , but through diet and exercise have gone from shots , to 2000mg Metformin to 1000mg Metformin in the span of 8 months. Supplements I started using were creatine, Fish Oil (2 caps/day) cinnamon (2/day) multi vitamin, vitamin C tab and protien powder on top of Chicken, Fish etc.... .

    I'm between 120-170 carbs a day now and am looking to go down to around 100 consistently. You may want to search some threads for Dave Palumbos diet as well , as there seems to be alot of people swearing by its results! Also, if possible, post your workouts as there are many knowledgeable people here that can help you formulate a workout plan to help tone you up!

    Good Luck!!!

          edit

          I tried to edit this with some of my workout info but I did not do it in the 15 minute period. I hit the wrong damn button before I was done so yes I do do more than bench. I will try and post a couple workouts in the A.M. for some feedback, thanks

            sometimes I finish with a straight arm pull down on the lat machine, i really like the move but it is easy to cheat. I have not really done much to deviate from these two workouts over that last year. I travel a lot so if I can only get two workouts in a week I try to do pulls then pushes. I have not done much with legs due to the fact that i started lifting again due to a calf tair. I started lifing again when I could not run anymore, since then I have added some real mass but need to shread it up a little with the shirtless season coming. I added about 49 pounds and some decent strength. Now I have a broken foot so legs are still out for at least 5 more weeks. Any help on these workouts or variations would be helpful.
            Thanks riff
