What About Low Carbs and Indigo-3G?

I know you need to ingest carbs for Indigo-3G to have something to partition. I take 5 caps at 6 am for a 6:30 am workout. My question is I am trying to follow a low carb diet after 12 noon since Indigo-3G only works for about 6 hours. I drink a protein/clean carb shake while working out that has about 50 g of carbs then eat breakfast later for a total of about 75 carbs before noon. Is that enough? I try to keep total daily carbs around 150 for optimal fat burning.

Sounds like you’re on the right track, yep. Shifting most of your carb intake closest training, like you’re doing, is one popular, effective approach.

Indigo-3G does put the carbs to work, so follow the timing on the label - before workouts on training days and before dinner (or your largest meal) on non-training days, and you can’t go wrong.

Eventually, your insulin sensitivity will get to a place where it can help you handle more carbs and you won’t “need” to go low-carb for fat loss, but that’s dependent on a few factors like your current body composition/bodyfat, training plan, overall diet, etc.

Coach Christian Thibaudeau also discussed some benefits of Indigo-3G even on a lower carb plan: Indigo 3g on Ketogenic Shredding Diet?

thanks for the reply. Does Indigo-3G partition all carbs in the same way, i.e. carbs from a brownie vs. clean carbs from veggies or wholegrains?
