    Yeah, and/or racemic amino acids.

    Do you know anything about the effects of a DL amino acid compared to teh L form of that amino?

    Is there much being studied on this? I know some D forms like D-phynylalanine can have some interesting effects, such as aiding those in chronic pain by enhancing the effects of pain killers.

    There's not a ton of readily available information on this, and I'm too lazy and unintelligent to look for myself. lol

    Just wondering if there is any interesting stuff being talked about that I don't know about.

      Fast-Twitch,

      I always like to spread my multi out over the day in 2 doses about 12 hours apart. Even the "one-a-days" are going to be more concentrated at some point. My preference is the two a day w/breakfast & dinner, but you can get the same thing if you bust your one a day in half.

          I take the EcoGreen from NOW. Just a basic multi, plus has lots of different phytonutrients (plant sources) which I figure is an added bonus and can't hurt. Fairly inexpensive too (can't believe how much some people pay for a simple multi- vitamin!)

              hehe as discussed via pm i know very little about this. Probably should check into it more

              • Hey layne, I've been doing this low carb thing for a while but i want to reintroduce carbs back into the diet. I was thinking of maybe doing like two carbs meals and the rest low-carb meals with fats added for energy. The only thing i'm afraid of is that my sugar-grain addiction would be horrendous and i'd just get fat. I want to change up the diet so I don't stagnate and I think carbs would do the trick. I don't really know I suppose, what would you recommend I do?

                    • Hey Layne, you're a smart dude. Just gotta give you props for that. My buddy has been eating every hour to hour and a half because he gets ravenously hungry after each meal and that quick. He's natural too and he seems to be progressing every month and progressing well. I know you probably shouldn't eat that frequent but why not and what are the drawbacks? What happens when you would eat that frequent? Indigestion?

                      • question

                        layne if you were training a mma fighter what would you reccomend for cardio to be in the best shape.

                        • well MMA requires long term endurance capacity but also requires explosive strength. I think the closest to perfect MMA cardio I've seen is what sean sherk does. He does high intensity drills that get his heart rate way up and he maintains these for a period of time and then he 'rests' but while he is resting he is still doing low intensity cardio. Basically this will allow your body to be able to have long term endurance capacity but still be able to be explosve when need be.

                            well there is actually evidence that if you keep amino acids constantly elevated that your body becomes refractory to them. Meaning protein synthesis will decrease in the presence of high levels of amino acids. my research supports this so far; it looks like it may actually be better to consume large protein doses and spread them out further in order to maximize protein synthesis.

                            • Layne on that note do you think these larger feedings should be relatively equal in size or would one much larger meal (such as post-workout, for example) have a more stimulatory effect on protein synthesis at this time?

                              and in another post you stated that 40-45g protein contained enough EAA's to top off protein synthesis...is this based on the approximate leucine content of each protein type? and how would you space out 45g doses and still hit your protein requirement numbers?

                                yea i would say that 3-4 hours between meals is probably best; that's about 5 meals per day; ends up being about 225g protein/day
