Series of DNP questions
TheChosenOne is in preparation for a low dose 2 week trial use of PL DNP . One of the questions TheChosenOne has is whether it would be more beneficial to use DNP at the tail end of his Test/EQ/Fina cycle or whether DNP should be saved and used at a later date?? The ultimate question is whether muscle catabolism is a pressing issue with DNP usage. Would it be safer to prevent catabolism by using in conjunction with AAS or due to the properties of DNP is catabolism a relatively small factor?? TheChosenOne is sure to have a number of other questions before beginning use, however, the current issue is the timetable for usage.

By no means is TheChosenOne disagreeing with your suggestion of low carb high protein suggestion, however, there are a number of individuals who would recommend consuming a maintenance level of carbs if TheChosenOne is not mistaken.
Taken from Educational DNP Thread:
"Restricting carbs will put the body in a state of hypoglycemia and can be dangerous to the health and also the mental well being. DNP also mimics insulin in that it shuttles glucose into the cells in the absence of glucose. This is great for fat burning, but when carb intake is too low the blood glucose can be at dangerously low levels as well."
With that said what would your macronutrient breakdown recommendation be?
Oh and the 3rd person references are part of a previous persona. A new alias has been adopted for a number of reasons, however, the legend still reigns.

I didn't word my response clearly....definitely take in maintenance levels of carbs, but some subscribe to the theory that high carbs will make using DNP more effective (by raising heat).....this just isn't true IMO. Low, but just sufficient, carbs and high protein is best.
By taking in lots of protein, you're providing a supply of amino acids, which will greatly inhibit protein catabolism, and the AA's will also serve as substrate for the mitochondria by conversion to acetyl CoA.
Your brain still wants glucose though, so take in some carbs.
