Well, tonight was my first carb-up on NHE. So far I have consumed 1 apple, 2 kiwis, 1 papaya, 1 extremely small banana, 1 small pumpkin, 1 delicata squash and 3 large sweet potatoes. I feel nice and full right now. If I get a bit hungry later I may have another squash and or more sweet potatoes. How does all of this sound to you, out of curiousity?

That's an assload of fruit. Do you feel very vitamin-y right now? You should.

Jay Edvardz 10-02-2003 07:45 PM

I do feel a tad bit "zippy!" :biggrin:

You wanna feel REAL zippy? Try the Emergen-C packets from alacer corp. I have one immediately pre workout and post workout. 3.5 grams of carbs per packet.

My mom bought some of those a while ago.. do they really work well? Maybe I'll tell her to pick up some more, if they're relatively low-carb...

Roy- if you like the emergen-C product tru Jarrow Jormulas TLC. It is a bulk product and thus a fraction the prce of EMGN_C, superior in composition as well.

That sounds like the plan! Let us know how it goes.

Carb up went extremely well. I ended up with 1 small banana, 2 kiwis, 1 apple, 1 papaya, 5 sweet potatoes, 1 sweet dumpling squash, 1 small pumpkin squash, 1 delicata squash. Sounds like a lot - probably because it was. Rob, I just ate till I was full :-) Overall great experience. Oddly enough - when I was on the anabolic diet, I would carb up with a lot of grain type products and refined products. I would feel like **** both mentally and physically after these carb ups. With this Paleo style carb up - I actually felt great afterward. Just more evidence, for me, that a Paleo style of eating truly is what we are designed to consume.

From where do you purchase your Jarrows Formulas?
