For those of you who don’t know him, he’s a physicist-turned-nutrition expert responsible for the hugely controversial (yet highly effective) diet protocols Carb Nite and Carb Backloading.
If you’ve never heard of these plans, and you’re interested in improving your body composition and health in any way, I strongly suggest you click on both of those links you just passed up.
I’ve been following both plans on and off for the past few years … for better and for worse (but that’s for another blog post… or two, or three).
He recently released a new product as an adjunct to his plans, and being a member of his super exclusive, extra top secret VIP inner circle, I’m happy to say a few bottles are en route to my doorstep as we speak.
The new supplement is called Carb Shock, and it’s intended to give you a huge insulin spike without having to resort to carbs. If you buy the insulin hypothesis, a big spike is highly beneficial at times, especially after a workout. Keeping insulin as low as possible the rest of the time would be optimal.
Scanning the ingredient panel, I would’ve never guessed that some of the ingredients would send your insulin higher than Amanda Bynes on a bender. Licorice root? Simple protein enzymes? I’ll be damned…
And that got me to thinking: are there any other ingredients not included in here that could amplify this effect? I think I may have found one, and I didn’t have to look very far at all.
