I was wondering if I am wasting my time only using Indigo-3G on re-feed days. I have been doing a ketogenic diet for around 4 months now, substantially dropping my bodyfat. As I approach 10% (around 12-13% currently), I have come to appreciate the benefits of re-feeding with carbohydrates once every 1-2 weeks (have done this twice) with Plazma/MAG-10/Indigo-3G, oats, potatoes, and small amounts of fruit. (first time using Biotest supplements, the two re-feed workouts w/ Biotest supplements were the best workouts of my life).
After my last re-feed around 10 days ago, I ‘felt’ leaner, noticeably held less water in subcutaneous tissue (former fat boy here) and dropped 2 pounds from my plateau weight that I was stuck at for 3 weeks. (To clarify, I was around 3 pounds heavier the day after using this protocol, but 2-3 days later I was 3 pounds lighter than I was before the re-feed day).
After spending time reading articles and browsing the forums, I know that I would see faster results if I stay on a prolonged Indigo-3G/Plazma/MAG-10 protocol, but I’m on a slight budget and would like to preserve these supplements for a lean-bulk.
My real question is, does using Indigo-3G like this, once every 1-2 weeks on my re-feed day, (~300g carbs @ 178lbs, 12-13% bf), provide appreciable benefits, or should I altogether save the Indigo-3G for when I attempt to gain mass again?
