Big Fat Bastards and Insulin
Most of us know L. Rea, author on sports chemistry, wrote Chemical Muscle Enhancement, yadda yadda yadda, not important if you dont know who he is. Anyways i was reading this article by him titled "Big Fat Bastards and Insulin "
Now i read through this article and am somewhat confused and need some things cleared up. I have always understood that your body needs AT LEAST 8+ carbohydrated/ I.U. of Insulin administered (some more, it all depends on the person or whatever, this isnt the point) but L. Rea is contradicting this, saying that the use of exogenous insulin in a low carb environment is perfectly okay. What!?
"Though fat intake could be quite high, total daily carbohydrate intake could not exceed 0.5 grams per 25 pounds of bodyweight daily. The reason is simple: The goal was to force the body to employ the gluconeogenic pathway as a means of energy production."
And at the bottom of a different article: http://www.mesomorphosis.com/articles/rea/031007.htm
You can find this statement!
"In summary it is the use of the fast acting whey protein that is preventing hypoglycemia during insulin administration…and the accumulative fat that normally comes with it for many."
This is turning my world upside down and I am very confused (yet hopeful!).
Is this true? Or is this cat full of hot air?

Maybe he just means that low carb intake is fine for the rest of the day AFTER the slin is out of your body, so that little fat is gained.

I think his ideas are dangerous to say the lest, I have no respect for him either. He had a forum on a board I mod at, his pat answer was always you need to read my book. So he sold them to us for 20 bucks, after reading the book we all had questions about his methods. This board was invite only, so everyone there was a vet and had knowledge of the game.
When the question started coming about how his methods didn't make sense, everyone stated their case as to why they disagreed with him. He didn't answer one of those question, but all of a sudden didn't have time to post on the board. I of his disciples told a female top do 400mg of eq a week for 4 weeks then switch to deca for 4 more, I disagreed with him, his reply was his way was scientific, so I asked for some proof, I never got it.
