B-vitamins work to metabolize the glucose and is very, very important in my experience. I have found from my own “research” that B-vitamins are the only vitamins that I really need to supplement, but they do not work alone by themselves, you must get enough fast acting carbs to recover well! (Personally I use a glucosesyrup with B-complex, and also brewers yeast post-workout). Some people cannot assimilate or get enough vitamin B, since you need to refill them throughout the day when being very active and those people could inject B-complex once or twice a week.

    Of course you also need enough sleep and as little stress as possible, but if you get the basics above, everything will become much easier!

    This week I have done six workouts in the gym, averaging around 60- 70 set and two hours per session. I have also done seven cardio sessions around one hour in the early morning. And I have no problems by getting enough recovery, and I feel close to fantastic by doing what I am doing! But I also know very well the feeling of not getting enough recovery, but for me it works very well right now…
    Thanks so much for the tips! I'll try implementing all that. I'm actually avoiding starches these days, but maybe honey would suffice? Also, what form of brewer's yeast do you use (powered / tablets)? I remember you attributed your glowing skin to that
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I am familiar with some of the Radio Kaos, and yes Roger Waters is one of the greatest musicians of our time:

    How much starches you need depends on activity level and honey cannot replace them unfortunately. If you are dieting down and in a calorie deficit and low on carbs, you will not recover that well, especially if you are doing high intensity training. But too much carbs can be bad also and make you sluggish or give a "carb hangover" the day after, so it is important to find the individual balance here.

    I prefer powdered brewers yeast, but if in a hurry I use tablets as well! One scoop or 25 gram per day is excellent, but I sometimes use the double of that! Lots of B-vitamins in brewers yeast and a very good amino acid profile too!

    Thanks Gorbag! I'm not remotely low carb - just get my carbs mostly from fruit and dairy...

    Now I'm totally sold on Brewer's yeast - going to order Yet another sup...

    Brewers yeast is one of the very few supplement that is really worth to bother about, but it tastes very bad though, just saying...

    With the Brewer's yeast, I'd recommend buying Lewis Labs and not any cheap brand. When I used it for helping blood sugar levels for acne, all the Paleo peeps recommended only Lewis labs with some good reasons. (cavegirleats.com balancedbites.com) has the info! It's not cheap though.

    Cheers Ns! I'll look into that.

    Hehe, yes I am a bit crazy, maybe, but I very much love what I am doing right now! I do not expect doing such a high volume for ever though, I cycle intensity and volume, and at this time I am ramping up the volume, and I feel very good by doing so...
