Aloha X3,

Welcome to the Indigo 'ohana'. Some of this information you might all ready be aware of, but I have been posting this in the new logs, hope it helps. :-)

Helpful Hints:

1. Don't wait to up your carbs
2. Get rid of any unhealthy carbs...keep them all clean
3. Get rid of wheat; though not a requirement, but most of us have switched over to gluten free products and recipes. A lot of us use rice based cereals like Cream of Rice or Rice & Shine; some use Cream of Buckwheat, or even Quinoa flakes.
4. Get rid of dairy/milk and switch over to Unsweetened Almond Milk or Unsweetened Coconut Milk, both are AWESOME!
5. Be leary of too much Oatmeal as the Avenin in it will have the same affect as the gluten does in wheat
6. Don't drink any form of Tea (Red, Black, White, Green) this will block the effects of Indigo-3G.
7. Don't take any concentrated forms of greens like Superfood, etc.
8. You don't need to take a fat burner while using Indigo-3G
9. Start saving money up now because you'll need to buy new clothes
10. Enjoy the ride...you'll want to just keep going, but be aware of how your body is feeling. A lot of us learned early on that Indigo-3G allows us to just keep going and we did, but then we fried our CNS. We have all since learned to take a break from time to time and do some Neural recharging type workouts.
11. Ask lots of questions over in the LiveSpill.
12. (like BiP says) Get lots of good quality sleep.
13. (like BiP says) Use Neural Charge workouts - you could devote one day a week to them, doing 1 or 2, or once every could of months do an entire week of NC only, or neural charge and high frequency strength work
14. (like BiP says and I totally agree) Drink 1-2 scoops Power Drive post workout, especially after NC workouts. Very good for neural recovery

Oh yeah...BTW

15. (Worth mentioning again) There is a guy on Indigo that you have to be leery of, especially be careful when you open up his log, he goes by Hip Scar. He seems like a nice enough person, nothing really abnormal about him except well ... he takes a lot of 'black box' pictures. Make sure you're in a location that other people cannot view your screen.
16. Another member to be watchful of is seph89 he is a little bit out there and always is spouting off BBBBBRRRRRAAAAAIIIIINNN CAAANNNNDDYYYYYYY and at times can give TMI. :-)
17. Oh yes...fruit...only eat it early in the morning's.
18. Drop all forms of 'fruit' juices. Full of sugar's.

Come over to the daily Live Coaching lab as there is a ton of amazing information shared every day; along with the the information we tend to spill lots of antics, razzing general harassment of our fellow teammates...all in good fun.

Today's Live Coaching Lab is here: http://www.T-Nation.com/...ing-topics/1736

Again, welcome to the 'ohana'.

Once a week should be fine. #5 is included for those of us that are sensitive to the Avenin in Oatmeal like Gluten in wheat. Some of the Indigo users have Oatmeal every day without a problem.

Thank you for the guidelines. If you don't mind me asking, what is the deal with the Avenin in oatmeal? does it interfere with the Indigo3 or is it related to gluten sensitive people?

Doesn't interfere with Indigo; for some people it just reacts in the body like gluten does.
