Re: Anabolic Diet - My Progress

Downside:
I had a wicked headache most of the day...I suspect from the carb load. Lower back (sacrum area) is still pretty sore. It's not used to getting worked. Shoulder injury is preventing proper presses, but it's getting stronger and better. Lack of upper back flexibility is preventing a good bench press and is just plain miserable.

If anyone has suggestions on how to how to loosen and restore flexibility to the upper back/neck, please toss me a bone. 8+ years hunched over a computer has ruined my posture and flexibility.

Re: Anabolic Diet - My Progress

Do you allow yourself post workout carbs?

4 week progress report

Today I'm 268.6...so after 4 weeks on the AD, I started at 285, I'm down 16.4 lbs!!! Awesome. Never felt better.
Great job so far. Mind sharing some specifics for everyone, such as:

- Current daily calorie intake
- Difference between non-carb and carb day calories
- Target body weight
- Current bf
- MIDx numbers

Keep up the good work and looking forward to hearing about your future progress.

Nope. I used to follow the "window of opportunity" and take in a bunch of dextrose and protein, but I have not on the AD. From reading, the anecdotal evidence suggests that it is not needed on this diet and I seem to be doing quite well on virtually no carbs. However, I do take in a protein drink with plenty of yummy Olive Oil post workout. Now some people require higher levels of carbs on this diet than the 30g starting point and the post workout carb spike is common.

Current daily intake is approximately 2200 cal. I'm shooting for 2k, but seem to go over. It's about 68%F,30%P,2%C

Carb load days are a free for all. I try to double my non-carb calorie number. Usually pancakes with Syrup, A whole Pizza (Round Table Italian Garlic), fruit (V8 and anything handy) and then whatever else I find readily available to consume. Been limiting the load period to about 24hrs. Start Saturday evening, end Sunday evening.

Target Body Weight is 205 at 10% Body Fat. I'm 6'4" and 268 now at a guesstimate of 33% body fat (can't be sure until I lose some more and can get to numbers that are on the caliper chart).


Thanks for the continued encouragement and support!


-Ryan

Re: Anabolic Diet - My Progress

foam rolling is a recovery technique where you take a hard piece of foam and literally roll on it. There are some good articles on it at t-mag and I've seen foam rollers at Dicks and they have them at elitefts.com

Re: Anabolic Diet - My Progress

Ryan, what information are you using to guide yourself with the Anabolic Diet? I ask this because the original 'Anabolic Diet' softbound book is older and out of print (if I recall correctly). I am curious as to where you were getting your information as I am interested as well - depending on the readings and further study, I may switch. Thanks for the help.

Re: Anabolic Diet - My Progress

Hi Glenn,

The book is call the Anabolic Solution (also called the Metabolic Diet). There are several versions, the original PDF, the Anabolic Solution, The Metabolic Diet, the Anabolic Diet for Body builders|Power Lifters.

I'm using the Anabolic Diet for Body Builders, bought on amazon for about $35

http://www.amazon.com/Anabolic-Solut...1066281&sr=1-1
w/fs depending on where you go...

The difference among them is minimal.
