<a href="http://www.T-Nation.com/store/products/MAG-10"target=“new”>MAG-10 can be very useful for those looking to speed fat loss. For one thing, it’s probably the most anti-catabolic agent on the market, though we don’t mention that benefit often. In short, you won’t lose muscle even if cutting calories and aiming for single-digit body fat.
MAG-10 contains a carbohydrate mixture that increases metabolic rate, while at the same time driving supraphysiologic levels of MAG-10’s di- and tripeptides into the muscle cell, which means that post-training is a good time for a serving (or “pulse”) or two. Additionally, 20 grams of protein from MAG-10 stimulates protein synthesis to a far greater degree than what you’d get from 100s of grams of conventional protein.
There are many ways to use MAG-10 if your focus is on losing body fat. If you’re serious and want the fastest effect possible, a Pulse Fast-type of approach may fit your needs. Traditionally, this is done twice per week with a few days of normal healthy eating in between each.
It’s a semi-fast, basically, where you pulse roughly every two hours with a serving of MAG-10, consuming no solid food for the day. You can add peri-workout nutrition such as <a href="http://www.T-Nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma however, or just Pulse Fast on an off day as many prefer. Many like to pair this with a daily <a href="http://www.T-Nation.com/store/products/brain-candy"target=“new”>Brain Candy or a couple of servings of Alpha GPC for the cognitive effects.
Another option is to use it Pulse Feast-style: that’s MAG-10 every two to three hours then a healthy solid meal at night that’s supportive of your fat-loss goals.
Finally, many just use MAG-10 between meals for the protein pulsing benefits explained on the store page, always timing one of those post-lifting.
There are more options, but that’ll give you a few ideas to consider. We’d be glad to help you out with a plan.
I would be highly interested in this. I would like help in creating a pulse feast plan. I’m look to drop BF without the strength lose and I believe this is the way for me to go.
