100 Grams Per Day Carbs OR

Hey Chris.

I was reading one of your old “hammer” articles about limiting total daily carb intake to 100 grams and it made a lot of sense. I am currently trying to shed the last stubborn 7 or 8 pounds of body fat that will put me under 10% total BF.

The problem is that I am also trying to gain muscle. The I3-G info all suggests that in order for it to work, you need to consume large amounts of carbs. First question: what is a “large amount of carbs”? (I’m 48 years old, 133 pounds and 14% BF according to the not-so-reliable bathroom scale BF feature.)

Second question: Would I be better off to limit to 100 grams or chow down after I3-G? or somewhere in between?

Third question: I know you have said I3-G “stays in your system and does its thing for 6 hours” but if I take it before supplementing and working out, does it get used up or is it still kicking for a meal say, 4 hours later?

Last question: How does the number of pills affect how it functions?

Thanks,
Bill

  1. Yes, that was an old article of mine, before I was “fixed up” by <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G. Now fat loss is easy at double or triple the carbs.

  2. A basic guideline for carbs when using Indigo-3G: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/strength-training-topics/1617"target=“new”>Indigo-3G Carb Guide

  3. For you, focus on gaining muscle. The fat loss will come along with it.

  4. Most of your carbs should come around training time. Ideally, from things like <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma.

  5. Your body does not “get used” to Indigo-3G. It keeps working.

  6. More is better. Less is not better.

Wow, I go down to like 200 or less grams of carbs per day and I end up flattening out like a pancake. LoL.
