@Dave2391BC, a mod may chime in here, but as someone who has been taking Indigo 3G for many years, as well as lots of other Biotest supplements, here’s my .02.
It’s very hard to critique why your plan isn’t working for you as more detailed information is needed, like:
-Training frequency and program?
-How many calories are you getting a day? Have you been tracking your macros? If so, what are they?
-Can you post a couple pics? Always easier to critique a physique with pics. They can just be a front and side shot, nothing fancy.
If you’re gaining fat (not just scale weight, talking about body fat,) then very simply you are eating too much, your training is lacking and/or both, at the end of the day you’re consuming a fair amount more than you’re burning. That’s not really debatable, it’s science. To think a 300 calorie shake per day and Indigo is responsible for 3-4 pounds of fat gain is a misguided notion. Also, if you’re getting more carbs than you’re used to now that you’re taking Indigo, remember that carbs pull water and add scale weight (carbs–>glycogen which is 3 parts water) so you may be seeing some water weight you’re not used to, but if you’re gaining fat then that’s a result of your nutrition, there’s no way around that fact.
Indigo 3G does not cause one to magically gain weight for no reason, and it also doesn’t magically make you ripped after one bottle. This may not be what you want to or expect to hear, but I would imagine your nutrition and training needs some cleaning up and more consistency.
If you had “visible abs”, gained 3 pounds and don’t anymore, they couldn’t have been that visible to begin with and you’re probably higher body fat than you think.
When you talk about the “Results” you expect to see with Indigo 3G, what exactly are you hoping for? A great supplement like Indigo 3G is certainly a game changer when implemented properly, but (correct me if I’m wrong please) the impression I get from your post is you expect to take a pill and see your body transformed before your eyes in a very short amount of time. You’ve taken one bottle of Indigo 3G, so that’s like, a month maybe? What do you expect to see in a month? Building a physique takes YEARS, and without knowing more about your training and diet, it’s very hard to offer any significant advice.
Indigo certainly has nothing to do with your decrease in strength, that is 100% training related.
This is an unfair statement IMO. You take a supplement, don’t see magic results in a month, and are now going to “warn people” not to take it? It seems like it’s not occurring to you that you’re doing something wrong, rather than you should start taking this pill and all of a sudden be ripped? Again, what exactly are you expecting to see in such a short amount of time? I would imagine you’re going to say “better use of carbs, lower body fat, etc.” Well, again, these things take time, a long time. Will Indigo help? Of course. But, you can’t out train a bad training program and inconsistent nutrition.
I’ve been taking Indigo for years and still do, it’s completely changed the way I handle carbs and has aided me significantly in physique progress over the years, because I am meticulous about my training, nutrition, which is what it takes to see a supplement really work.
If you can provide detailed info about your nutrition and training, it would be much easier to tell you why you’re not seeing results, but I can guarantee you it’s not because of the Indigo.
