Insulin FAQ 

what is insulin? 

Insulin is a hormone secreted by the beta cells of the 
pancreas that controls the metabolism and cellular uptake of 
sugars, proteins, and fats. As a drug, it is used principally 
to control diabetes. Insulin is not a steroid . 

What type of insulin should I use for bodybuilding? 

Humulin R and Humulog are the only insulins I recommend 
because they act fast and are out of the body fastest(this 
makes them the safest). Humalog aside from quicker onset and half-life it is 
essentially the same as Humulin R 

Why do I want to use insulin

Insulin has been called "Anabolicus Maximus" by some gurus of 
the bodybuilding world. Insulin can give you greater gains 
than you have ever had using anabolics alone. Insulin, in 
combination with androgens and resistance exercise, may 
trigger maturation of satellite muscle cells (small, more or 
less useless cells that are held in reserve, which do not 
contribute to muscular strength) into mature muscle cells that 
do contribute to muscular size and strength. How fu**kin cool 
is that. Hyperinsulinemia has been shown to stimulate protein 
synthesis in isolated limb infusion experiments , these 
anabolic properties seem to be the result of insulin binding 
to IGF-1 receptors. 

If insulin is so great why aren't all diabetics huge? 

Diabetics have a disease and use insulin to replace endogenous 
insulin that they cannot produce. Bodybuilders use insulin in 
a totally different way. Some diabetic bodybuilders manipulate 
their insulin use to use insulin for muscle growth and get 
good results but changing dosages and times of injection of 
insulin for diabetics can be dangerous. 

Isn't taking insulin dangerous? 

Hmmm...,YES! Before deciding to take insulin here is what you 
have to do to be safe. 

Insulin safety 

1. Do not use slin alone have a training partner or girlfriend 
who's not using slin hang around with you from the time you 
take the slin to about 2.5/4 hrs after. 

2. Tell you're partner to look for anything out of the norm 
for your personality and have a list of questions like your 
ssn or address etc that they can ask you. Don't joke around, 
and answer them without ****, because if you cant answer or 
refuse to answer it could be a sign of hypoglycemia(low blood 
sugar). Symptoms of hypoglycemia include disorientation, 
headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, fast heartbeat, 
sweating, tremor, and nausea. 

3. If you cant/wont answer or are feeling the symptoms of 
hypoglycemia they should be prepared to feed you carbs like syrups, coke, sugary stuff. I use glucose tablets kinda like sweets but gets in the blood faster and 
dissolve quickly. these are for diabetics ask at the pharmacy. 

4. Have your partner know that if they suspect low blood sugar 
and cant convince or force you to consume carbs until your 
better. CALL 999 and ask for an ambulance and tell the truth 
to the operator... that they suspect you are in insulin shock 
and explain when they get there(the ambulance guys not the 
cops) that you are not diabetic but using insulin for anabolic 
purposes. Have the type of slin, the dosage and carbs consumed 
recorded to give the paramedic. They will save your life. Then 
you refuse transport to the hospital and eat. It might be a 
good idea to make sure your house is "clean" before every 
workout just in case the bad thing happens and the cops ask a 
lot of questions. 

5. Why so much preparation for the possible problem?? insulin 
can kill you in minutes if you go down!! 

6. Take the carbs and protein together immediately after 
injecting the slin(dont take chances trying to time out 15 min 
after injection). Take the protein with the carbs because the 
protein is pushed into the muscles with the slin also(creatine 

7. Before an hour passes you should eat a normal balanced 
meal(high protein low fat with carbs). 

8. Consume another small high protein medium carb low fat meal 
at 2.5 hours after the injection. Congrats you lived.(keep 
some gatoraid on hand just to make sure because your not gonna 
have a lifeline) 

9. YAWN... Don't go to sleep within 4/6 hours of using insulin 
since you can develop hypoglycemia while asleep and not have 
warning signs. 

Ok I'm not scared I still want to use insulin... 

Where do i get it? 

Different rules for different fools in the UK ‘Slin is only available by obtaining a script from your doctor but just like steroids it can be purchased via a reputable source . BUT... Insulin is NOT a controlled substance and will 
not be confiscated by customs or postal inspectors so order it 
online ir if you cant get it locally. Its legal. 

Where do I keep it? (STORAGE) 

All preparations of insulin contain 
instructions to keep in a cold place and to avoid freezing. 
The refrigerator is a good spot. Unrefrigerated insulin can be 
kept of 28 days as long as it stays in a cool and dark place. 

Where/how do I inject insulin? 

The best sites for insulin injection are in the subcutaneous 
tissue of the abdomen(avoid the area close to bellybutton) 
.Usually, you should not inject within 1 inch of the same site 
within 1 month. The arms and legs can also be used, but 
insulin uptake from these sites is less uniform. Insulin 
should be injected subcutaneously only with a U-100 insulin 
syringe. "B-D ultra-fine" insulin syringes are good. Insulin 
syringes are available without a prescription. 
If you cant purchase the syringes at a pharmacy, you can 
order them online. Using a syringe other than a specific insulin 
syringe is dangerous since it will be difficult to measure out 
the correct dosage. 

How much insulin should I take? 

I recommend never using over 10IU. 10IU is enough to make you 
In general Dosages used are usually 1 IU per 20 pounds of lean 
bodyweight. So a 220lb bodybuilder with 9% body-fat would use 
10iu of insulin(aprox200lb lean mass/20 = 10iu). But even 
experienced insulin users shouldn't use max dosage at the 
beginning of an insulin cycle. First-time users should start 
at a low dosage and gradually work up. For example, first 
begin with 2 IU and then increase the dosage by 1 IU every 
consecutive workout until you reach your calculated dose or 
determine a maximum personal dose(some people are more 
sensitive to insulin sides like hypoglycemia). This will allow 
the athlete to determine a dosage he can safely use. Insulin 
dosages can vary significantly among athletes and are 
dependent upon insulin sensitivity and the use of other drugs. 
Athletes using growth hormone and thyroid might have higher 
insulin requirements. 

When do I take insulin? 

It is my opinion that you should only take insulin after a 
work out, never before or when not working out, because before 
a work out you could crash and die during the workout and when 
your not working out it makes you fat. Some people disagree 
with this. IF you want, get some info from them and try it. 
But remember I told ya so. 

When do i eat after using insulin? 

You should immediately take a carbohydrate AND protein drink 
after taking you're insulin. I've stated this twice because it 
is very important. Even experienced insulin users can get a 
surprise now and then. 
Eat a meal at about an hour after using insulin. Consume 
another small high protein medium carb low fat meal at 2.5 
hours after the injection. keep some gatoraid on hand just to 
make sure. Remember that insulin can still work much later so 
be careful and eat if you feel hypoglycemia symptoms. 

What do I eat after using insulin? 

Some people recommend a zero fat intake for 4 hours after 
taking insulin. I do not disagree with this. But if your 
bulking you can be a little relaxed on this. But high fat 
intake after taking insulin can lead to high body fat. 
The carb/protein drink taken after the insulin shot should 
contain AT LEAST 10 grams of carbs and 5 grams of quality 
protein per IU of insulin injected with little or no 
fat(creatine taken in this drink is optional but works great). 
Before an hour passes you should eat a normal balanced 
meal(high protein low fat with carbs). At 2.5 hours after the 
injection you should Consume a small meal. keep some gatoraid 
on hand just to make sure. Remember that insulin can still 
work much later so be careful and eat if you feel hypoglycemia 
symptoms. Once again i've stated this twice because it is 

***Some insulin users recommend far less carbs than I have 
stated above
. This is a personal decision you will have to 
make since it could be very dangerous...Even deadly! My 
opinion is to take the carbs and learn to diet after bulking 
if you gain too much fat.*** 

How long should/can I take insulin? 

Short cycles please because you could have side effects. It is 
suspected that you could become an insulin dependant diabetic 
but I have never seen proof, but is it worth the risk? I would 
only use it a few times a week(maximum 4 on 3 off) for no more 
than 3/4 weeks. 

What should I avoid while using insulin? 

Do not use alcohol. It lowers blood sugar, and you may 
experience dangerously low blood sugar levels. 

Do not change your workout in the middle of a cycle of 
insulin. Changes in how much you exercise can change the 
amount of insulin you can tolerate and maintain blood sugar 

Do not change the brand of insulin or syringe that you are 
using without first doing your research or speaking to someone with superior knowledge then yourself. Some 
brands of insulin and syringes are interchangeable, while 
others are not. 

Do not use insulin if you are sick with a cold, flu, or fever. 
These illnesses may change your insulin requirements.. 

Do not use any insulin that is discolored, looks thick, has 
particles in it, or looks different from the way it looked 
when you bought it. 

Do not go to sleep within 4/6 hours of using insulin since you 
can develop hypoglycemia while asleep and not have warning 

What are the possible side effects of insulin besides 

Rarely, people have allergic reactions to insulin. Seek 
emergency medical attention if you experience an allergic 
reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; 
swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives). 

Hypothetically, one could become an insulin dependent diabetic if insulin is used too long. Hypothetically.


Any questions just fire them to me and I’ll do my best to answer them! Hope this helps keep you safe.


Peace ✌️
