Avoiding/Controlling Fat Gain on Slin....
We all know the 2 ways of gaining excess fat while using slin
1) Eating fat while the slin is still active.
2) Consuming to many carbs in fear of going hypo.
My question is in regards to fact #2. Let me give you an example first.....Say one eats 400 grams of protein, 300 grams of carbs, and 100grams of fat per day to maintain is bodyweight (meaning gaining ZERO fat and ZERO muscle). If this guys consumes the same macro nutrient breakdown while on slin, but consumes ALL 300 grams of carbs while the slin is active is this conisdered excess carbs which will lead to fat gain?
Meal1-4 Protein and Fat---No Slin
Meal 4 Post Workout Shake (75 grams of protein and 150 grams of Carbs)--Slin IS Active
Meal 5 Protein and 150 grams of carbs--Slin IS Active
Meal 6 Protein and Fat--No Slin
Hope You Understand This!!

IMO you want to walk a tightrope. The ideal carb intake during your slin's activity window is that amount which just prevents you from experiencing hypo symptoms...no more...no less. I see no benefit to consuming all of your carbs during the slin activity period. Judging by your meal schedule, you don't lift in the AM, so I'd take in some complex carbs during the first meal(s). I like to use only simple carbs during slin's activity, because that allows you to fine tune the amount of carbs much more easily than by combining complex carbs into the equation. Perhaps your 2nd meal during slin activity (should be a solid meal) can include some complex carbs, but that'll be up to you. There's no reason to gain fat while using slin, since we know exactly what causes this to occur.

Thanks bro. I really wouldnt consume all my carbs after my slin shot. I guess the poitn I was trying to make was if I didnt gain fat off of 300 grams of carbs all day while off slin. Surely I wouldnt gain fat off 300 grams of carbs all day while on slin. Correct?

So E1905 your saying you should consume just simple carbs during your slin activity and your complex's early in the day? So would that mean a shake with protein and dextrose, and an hour and a half later a meal of chicken, or steak, vegtables, and more dextrose?

so einy...i completely undersatnd the dex after your slin shot...but the PPWO meal has me thinking...
what about chicken and 20oz's of gatorade???...thats still a simple carb right, and that would seem more realistic for me and my schedule during school.
