First, it’s all about choosing the right carbs. I suggest no wheat-based carbs and plenty of rice. And of course always take care of workout nutrition with Plazma, Anaconda, and/or MAG-10. The carbs contain in those supplements cannot be compared to regular food carbs and actually help to increase fat loss.
Most every Indigo user who started too low with carbs regretted it. 300g is a better starting point for most people (that includes counting the carbs in workout drinks), even with fat loss in mind. I went from around 100g per day pre-Indigo to 300 to 400 daily and got leaner. Clean foods in the diet of course, but I was not “on a diet” by any means. (Gained about 16 pounds of muscle in a year too.)
Always remember that Indigo-3G is a nutrient repartitioning agent. You have to give it those nutrients in order to get the most out of it.
And here’s a good summary of carb choices that fit the bill: <a href="http://www.T-Nation.com/strength-training-topics/1617"target=“new”>Basic Carb Guide
Do you have an Indigo log started yet? I’d be glad to look over your plan.
Thanks Chris, I had started one my first attempt at indigo during a bulk but after about a week i ended up in and out of the coutnry for an extended period of travel for work and things got scrapped.
Plan on starting up one this weekend or updating the other one for the cut and give indigo a full 8 weeks minimum.
My main carbs are coming from rice/sweet potatoes/quinao(sp?) and waxy maize(peri workout). Have some fini bars on the way i plan to use for pre workout. Pulsing MAG-10 2-3 times a day.
Right now it is usually no carbs during the day with 40-50 G coming peri, and 40-50 g post on training days. Cardio is 5 days a week fasted walk with my dog for 45 min carrying a weighted back pack. Weight training is 4-5 days a week mainly mountain dog style/inspired.
I am extremely carb phobic and the last time i got down to single digit bf levels was mainly on ketosis and very low carb so i am having trouble mentally opening up the flood gates to carb use. As much as I want to ‘trust the indigo’ to do its job I am fearful, wont lie.
