    This is a method some use when getting ready to carb up before a show. Can be tricky and needs to be timed correctly so most probably stear clear. I'm sure every pro BB'er uses this method before stepping on stage. But to do it ED I think will cause some health problems. Even if cycling 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off that's a lot of stress on your pancreas daily...............

    but 3iu each meal in the end of the day will be 18iu and I think 18iu is plenty enough to do the trick

    yeah but your only getting the effects of 3ius at a pop not 18ius...seems alittle extreme if you ask me esp if your doing this pre contest,you would have to have carbs at every meal to prevent going hypo im not even sure that is possable w/ 3ius??

    As devl said, 3Iu won't do much, that's pretty much a starting dose, and slin only needs to be taken once p/day PWO as that is the time when it's mostly beneficial. I wouldn't take slin with every meal.

    So why in the insulin profile it says that this method is also beneficial?

    3iu, before a meal would just tell your pancreas to slow down a bit. Not to beneficial. 10iu PWO, would give you a great insulin spike and be very benefical for your muscles. Be careful, and my knowledge is just by research. I am a diabetic and have a hard enough time with slin for that. Good luck in you journey.

    Yeah, but then again that 12IU is only once a day, the rest of your meals your pancreas will release its own insulin . To take 3IU a meal would surely stop your pancreas secreting insulin on its own. In other words you will be forever relying on a synthetic source of slin, thus increasing your chances of diabetes. This is just my theory not fact.

    I would say running 20IU a day split into two 10IU shots morning and PWO would be safer plus more anabolic , given that you are using a larger dose at the times when your body is most depleted and in need of nutrients.

    That may be beficial, but I still think that PWO once p/day is enough and the best way to go about it. Insulin doses PWO is when it is mostly beneficial.
