I am a couple weeks into I3G, so doing two doses a day. I wonder about the timing of the first dose. I normally have a relatively light lunch (raw veggies and Greek yogurt spiked with whey protein powder and various seeds) around noon to one, then have my weight workout around 3:00 in the afternoon.
Would you advise having the I3G dose a half hour before my lunch, or wait and have it a half hour before my weight workout (and thus 15 minutes before beginning a Plazma pre-load)?
So far I have been taking the first I3G dose around 11:30, assuming it should still be very effective for my 3:00 weight workout and cover both my lunch and the Plazma loading boost (since I3G is said to work in the system for about six hours). Then around 7:30 or so I take the second dose a half hour before dinner.
On the other hand, much has been written here about the benefits of taking I3G just before a workout, especially in conjunction with Plazma loading. But if I wait and take the first I3G dose around 2:30 to maximize its effectiveness with the Plazma and the workout, then it’s only about five hours until the second dose, so there is a bit of an overlap, and I would guess it would do little or nothing regarding repartitioning lunch carbs.
Which timing schedule for the first dose would you recommend in my situation? If it matters, I also usually do a MAG-10 dose mid-morning and again immediately after my workout. Thanks for any help or advice anyone can offer!
