Indigo + Metabolic Drive


#1

My job has me outside pretty much all day. Is this alright:

Meal 1 (Breakfast) - Metabolic Drive bar
Meal 2 (hold me over 'til lunch) - Metabolic Drive Bar
Meal 3 (Lunchtime) - First Indigo dose prior to this - I can go to a restaurant/diner/pretty much have free reign. What I’ve been doing is having a tuna salad platter with a double tuna serving instead of coleslaw.
Meal 4 (on the way home) - Metabolic Drive bar
Meal 5 (pre-workout) - 2nd Indigo Dose - Usually drink some spike and start sipping on MAG-10
Meal 6 (intraworkout) - MAG-10
Meal 7 (post-workout/dinner) - Examples include turkey chili, steak, chicken salad (no mayo), omelet/fritatta…

Changed careers and don’t have access to a fridge/microwave anymore so the Metabolic Drive bars have been a godsend but I just want to make sure they are not going to de-rail my efforts.

Thank you.

No, <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/metabolic-drive-bars"target=“new”>Metabolic Drive Bars are perfect for on the go meals.

However, given that you’re using <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G, there are some improvements you can make to get the most out of it. First, make sure you’re getting a least 300g of carbs per day counting workout nutrition. All the solid foods you listed are low carb unless there’s a big serving of rice with those lunches and dinners.

Also, if you’re using only Mag-10 for peri-workout because of budget, that’s fine, but <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma or Surge Workout Fuel would give Indigo-3G more to work with. With Mag-10 only, your workout nutrition is basically low carb. (Mag-10 is great though for a post-workout pulse.)

Finally, a <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/finibar-competition-bar"target=“new”>Finibar would be a better choice for a pre-workout bar.

Remember, Indigo-3G is a nutrient repartitioning agent, and you have to give it something to repartition, especially around training time. More on that here: http://www.t-nation.com/supplements/what-you-dont-know-about-workout-supplementation

Thanks Chris. I do have some Plazma just wasn’t sure if it was good to use.

Just wanted to update progress and results have been great. I’ve switched to using the Plazma for intra workout, as well as Brain Candy.
