<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G is $69 per bottle if you sign up for the auto-ship program. Basically, you buy a bottle online and if you like it you call Biotest at 800-525-1940 and sign up.
You can add other supplements to the auto-ship order as well, whatever you use monthly. You can put auto-ship on hold, change your order, or cancel any time. It’s convenient and you get Indigo-3G at a discount. (Auto-shippers have also been known to get special treats sometimes, like first dibs at new products, free extras etc.) See the bottom of the store page linked above. Auto-ship goes out the first week of every month and you’ll get an email first so you can change things if needed.
As for your questions, no, there’s no need for low-carb days when on Indigo-3G. Your off day or conditioning-only days may naturally have fewer because you won’t be using a peri-workout drink like Plazma, Surge or Anaconda on non-lifting days, but you should still seek out quality carbs every day. Remember, Indigo-3G is a nutrient repartitioning agent, so you have to give it something to repartition into muscle. We have some suggested carb sources here: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/strength-training-topics/1617"target=“new”>Indigo-3G Carb Guide
With calories, most people can and do consume more, but it’s all about finding your personal sweet spot with intake: the intake point where you’re making the muscular gains you want with little or no fat gain, or you’re losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time, depending on your goals.
This sweet spot of intake differs with everyone, but it’s always higher than before they upgraded their physiology with Indigo-3G. (You can’t go by what worked for you before, because your body is working differently on Indigo-3G.)
We have a couple of Indigo-3G users who’ve lost 100 pounds of fat and gained muscle at the same time (one competing in powerlifting.) Others have been “hardgainers” who are now able to pack in nutrients and repartition them to muscle gain. Some of these guys are topping 600g of carbs per day. And finally, others who could not eat many carbs without turning them into body fat are now able to consume adequate carbs and gain muscle instead of just storing every extra calorie as fat. (That would be me.)
So, it may take you a couple of weeks to find that sweet spot for you goals, but we’ll be here to help through the Indigo logs and this forum too if needed.
