I would prefer the higher dose even granting that this is shorter duration.
A point about Indigo-3G that has never really been addressed as much as it should be is the effect on gene expression. That’s probably because that’s hard to write about, though I’m planning on an article in that general area.
What I mean by this, at the risk of seeming to sidetrack totally from your question, is that it’s not simply the DNA code that you’re born with. That says what materials can be made by the cells, but not how much will be made on an ongoing basis or in response to various stimuli or inputs. How much gets produced is gene expression, and that changes with time and according to what you’re exposed to.
By setpoint, below, I mean where the body tends rather strongly to stay, where modest changes in exercise and diet have little effect in moving the body, and to which the body would rapidly return with what should be normal caloric intake and exercise.
At one point an individual might have a setpoint of easily staying lean despite not exercising much and taking little care with quality or amount of food, but at another point tend to stay substantially fat despite taking much more care in diet and exercising more. An individual might at one point have a setpoint of having only say 150 lb LBM, and then at a later time, 180 lb LBM. At the risk of making personal examples, Chris Shugart once had a setpoint of being much fatter than now, and even after much improvement there, had a further change in setpoint with regard to carb tolerance and ability to easily stay lean.
All this is from changes in gene expression.
This is different than changing the inputs or stimuli to the body at the moment, as for example ephedrine might do, or caffeine, etc, or providing good or bad substrates for the body to use. Not much in the supplement area affects gene expression.
Indigo-3G does, in quite a few regards. This is the fundamental reason why it typically has lasting effects even after discontinuance. It’s not simply signaling the body, in the day of use, to activate a pathway more at that time.
Especially when being as you say a FFB, I’d rather be positive of effecting this change thoroughly, hence favoring the higher dose.
Given all your activity, 200 g carbs sounds a good level.
