  • Sorry if this has been asked before and I missed it. I have been using skiploads for a few weeks now and it seems to be working well. I know your not supposed to count on skiploads but I'm OCD with counting my cals. This past load I took in almost 1000g of carbs in about 8 hours. My weight was only up 1 lb on Monday. My thought is either my load is too small or I wasn't depleted enough. On the flip side i am making progress so should I even be worrying about it?

      How quick do you baseline after the 1lb gain? If its really quickly then increase the load. Also the amount of fluid you drink during a load will be a big factor in how much you gain during a load the following day.

      Other than that experiment.

      • Skip,
        I'm doing my 2nd physique show this Saturday. Last show i did the traditional 3 day load and came in flat. I was 5.5% 180....this time I've been training hard and on now carbs since January with a refeed every 7 days...one refeed I did about 700 grams of carbs and spilled over like crazy...I'm doing a skipload today. Depletion is not an issue as I've been training hard and doing 1100 cals of high intensity cardio 6 days a week. I'm flat as hell again but again around 6. Is this lean enough or a skipload to do its thing?

        • I weigh 197 as well. The week of my last show I was 187 on Tuesday and came in at 180.

          • Skip have you ever experimented with throwing in a skipload every time you drop a certain amount of weight rather than once every week? For instance if it's only been 4-5 days but you're down 1-2lb below baseline just throwing one in early? Or would you always just increase weekly calories at that point?

            • Also, how would I go about maybe paying you for a phone consultation as to how to rid this water. I rea where sometimes you have to do more than just drink a crap load of water over the next few days.
