My First Super Stack


#1

I just ordered my first Super Stack along with 2 extra bottles of Indigo 3G. I’m wondering about a guide as to how much I should be eating and when I should be taking the supplements. I’m 30 years old, 190 lbs, and athletic. I play a lot of sports and am looking to pack on lean muscle while burning off the last layer of fat. Can someone help me out here with some type of guide.

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G is used twice per day, 6 capsules per serving. You’ll always want to take 6 capsules before weight training. The other 6 can come at another time in the time before a meal. It’s always a good idea to separate your Indigo-3G doses by 6 hours or so to spread them out.

For <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma, pre-load before weight training with one serving, about 15 minutes prior to your workout. During training, sip 1 or 2 more servings.

One hour after weight training, have a serving of <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/mag-10"target=“new”>Mag-10. Mag-10 can also be used as a pulsing protocol with a serving between meals, before bed, first thing in the AM etc.

I can’t really tell you how much you should be eating because I don’t know your goals, size, experience, whether you’re male or female etc., but remember that Indigo-3G works best with adequate carb intake. Most start around 300g per day and that counts your workout drinks. We have some other carb guidelines here: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/strength-training-topics/1617"target=“new”>Indigo-3G Carb Guide

Also, be sure to read the labels, which say about what was written above but provide more details.

Okay, after trying to up my cards on non-training days to 300 grams, while avoiding wheat and just having 2 pieces of fruit in the morning, and I have to ask, how do you do it?
I felt like I was eating every hour, and still struggled to get to 300!

We’ve had Indigo-3G users go over 600g per day, wheat-free too. Not difficult, you probably just need to expand your carb selection from solid foods. Here’s some help: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/strength-training-topics/1617"target=“new”>Indigo-3G Carb Guide

Rice (all types) and rice products such as plain rice cakes, no-sugar puffed rice cereal, rice and seed crackers, hot rice cereal such as Rice 'n Shine or Cream of Rice (a favorite of John Meadows), pastas made from 100% rice, rice breads

Protein powders and carb-containing meal replacements such as Metabolic Drive

Starchy vegetables such as potatoes (white, red-skinned, or sweet)

Quinoa, flaked quinoa, buckwheat, cream of buckwheat hot cereal, and oatmeal if you tolerate it well

Fruit (a piece or two per day, limited to breakfast)

Okay, thanks. So far, I was trying to limit my cabs to vegetables, and that was making it tough.

Sure, that would be very tough to do. Are you coming from a Paleo background?

Paleo is great for the very overweight and inactive, but hard training folks soon find they need the carbs, at least from workout nutrition drinks. Many former hardcore Paleo people are now calling themselves “Paleo + rice” or “Paleo + supplements.” For myself, I found that rice/buckwheat/quinoa/potato/oatmeal was no problem, just wheat products. Made it much easier to bump the carbs for Indigo-3G.

With carbs, it’s all about finding the sweet spot. 300g per day, counting workout drinks like Plazma or Surge, is a general place to start. Some find they need 50g less depending on their goals and how they train; others go hundreds of grams higher.

Not a Paleo background per se, just going by what had worked for me in the past.
HOT-ROX and low cards had allowed me to drop bodyfat pretty quickly, especially when the cards were green veggies.

Right now I’m using Indigo-3G to help with intra-abdominal fat, and love handles that I have never been able to completely get rid of, so just trying to adapt my thinking to “drop bodyfat, up carb intake.”

Just remember that Indigo-3G is a nutrient repartitioning agent for muscle gains and fat loss, but not a traditional “fat burner.” It needs some carbs to do its job optimally.
