Trying to figure out what I’ll need to be well prepared to get the most out of Indigo-3G when my order comes in. For some background, I lost about 30lbs on a strict keto diet before I left home to spend 3 months on base for some training. Once I got here I wasn’t able to stay as strict with the keto since in the barracks all I have is a fridge an a microwave, without being able to cook my own meals and having to eat out a lot it made that tricky.
On the plus side now I have access to a gym again and the time to go, for the first month I was in the gym 5 days a week doing a novice 5x5 lifting program, but I still had BF% to lost so a month ago I switched to the Athlean-X training system.
At 5’7 and 197lbs at last weigh in yesterday, I’ve gained 3.1lbs of muscle while only reducing BF% by about .4% to 21.2% that I’m at now (the gym on base has an InBody 230 machine I use once a week to check progress). I plan on drinking a lot more water as it seems I’m carrying around 7lbs of extra water weight that I wasn’t a month ago, but other than that I do my best to keep my diet under control as best I can without being able to cook, take ON nutrition Gold Standard pre-workout before my workouts since it includes some creatine in it, and ISOPURE Zero carb whey protein to make sure I get my protein in, while taking 25g of casein protein before bed.
That said, I’m hoping Indigo-3G will help me start cutting the BF% down again as it’s seemed slowed or stalled lately for some reason. I’m in the gym 5 days a week during the week, and sometimes if I get off class early I’ll go back in the evenings for a bit of cardio or ab workout, and on the weekends if schedule allows I’ll be in the gym getting an ab workout or light cardio in, with every session ended with 20min in a dry sauna. Over the past month since switching to Athlean-X system for my workouts I can definitely tell I’ve made gains in my bi’s and tri’s, quads are firmer as are my calves, and my man-boobs have flattened out and are making the transition to more muscular pectorals, it’s the dang visceral fat in my midsection that isn’t seeming to want to budge.
Will adding Indigo-3G into my supplementation help push the fat burning a bit more? And if so what would be ‘good carbs’ to take in to fuel the Indigo-3G? Maybe some instant oatmeal or bowl of rice I could pop in the microwave in the mornings or something?
