Just want some opitions on this.

OK. Im carb depleting on Mon, (today), Tue and Wed. Would it be of any benefit to have fruit as my limited source of carbs whilst I depete as fruit is alleged to store Gylogen in the liver primarilly ??? Surely this will help totally deplete Gylcogen in my muscles.

Anyone ?

No bananas, grapes, strawberries. Stick to apples.

well i would argue on strawberries they are pretty low-gi - all berries are.


fruit is cool, yates, but just make sure it's the lower GI ones (berries are on the top of that list - blueberries especially)

Thanks.

But will fruit aid in the depletion of Muscle Glycogen ?

no...not directly. it will keep your liver glycogen full, and aid in NOT replating muscle glycogen, if that makes any sense. lifting and cardio will directly aid in Muscle glycogen depletion.

If it does not replenish muscle glycogen. I know apples won't do much, berries apparently, either...

all carbs replace muscle glycogen. It is the degree to which it favors liver over muscle that differs.
IMHO, you hypothesis is not very sound.
Just avoid the carbs period.

I agree with doc. Don't mess around by hoping that the fructose will be exclusively stored in your liver, just cut the carbs like a good boy. :D

If you eliminate all carbs then carb load you may get a better supercompensation effect.

Yates, i think shawn ray uses strawberries and apple pie filling to bring out vascularity.

I know Dorian used to drink 2 glasses of dry white wine the night before a show for that very same reason also.

I believe Dorian used to Drink Wine on a few night during the weeks before the MR O. 1) to de-stress him and 2) as alcohol is a pretty good duretic.

I've been trying it, but kinda get a little p!ssed on one glass at the moment and start rining up ex-girlfriends telling them how much I love em. lol

Da Fruit thang :-

If you see it as no benefit Doc, then I'll give it a miss.

Thanks All.

I agree with DOC.Cut out all carbs until the carb load up.With the thing about getting drunk and ringing up ex's,LOL, have done that before and we have something in common.I too would be pissed if i drunk 1 glass of wine( as i do not drink alcohol),cheap date i suppose.
