Hulk Out On Sugar & Ammonia

Re: How can I force extra protein into my muscles during a bodybuilding workout?

It’s a four-step process …

1) Eat a fruit rich in glucose (grape sugar).

2) Drink a glass of water (or two if it won’t interfere with your workout).

3) Work out. Do your thing.

4) Drink less water than usual for the next day or two (or three if you’re working out every fourth day and choose to bulk up).


“When in doubt, follow the instructions,” according to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty).

The fruit supplies the glucose, and the water converts uric acid into alkaline ammonia.


According to Wikipedia …

“Alongside Hans Adolf Krebs and Carl Martius, he [Franz Knoop] clarified the reaction sequence of the citric acid cycle in 1937. He determined the structure of the histidine and demonstrated that amino acids can be synthesized not only in the plant organism, but also in the animal body.”


Professor Franz Knoop (“Modern Problems of Nutrition,” New York Medical Journal, Mar. 29, 1913) wrote …

“By treating grape sugar in vitro with ammonia it was found that aminoacids could be formed. In vivo the same process is possible, for ammonia is always present and the synthesis consists in an interaction between this substance and one of the alpha ketonic acids which are derived from carbohydrates in abundance. The resulting aminoacids, formed either in vivo or in vitro, are Bausteine (building stones) for the synthesis of proteids. Thus, by the discovery that alpha ketonic acids arise from the metabolism of sugar, and that these acids may be converted into aminoacids by the action of ammonia, we have the explanation of the protein sparing action of the carbohydrates and of ammonia, both of which facts have been recognized by the clinician, but which have been held to be impossible by the older school of metabolic physiologists, for they did not recognize the possible conversion of carbohydrates into proteids.”

“It’s like déjà vu all over again,” as Yogi Berra famously said.


Foods high in glucose according to Growth Zone …

Growth Zone 1 =

apples, bananas, dates, kiwi fruit (also Zone 2), mangoes, pears, sweet cherries

Growth Zone 1 1/2 =


Growth Zone 2 =

grapes, kiwi fruit (also Zone 1)

Growth Zone 3 =

Other names for glucose are …

    Great question!

    Can u substitute wine for grape juice?

      Nope! Sugar is anabolic, and alcohol is catabolic.

      Excess sugar is catabolic too. Workers who handle sugar sometimes lose their fingernails.

      Moderation in all things. LOL

    what about white cane sugar vs fruit ,means other than fruit we use just plain sugar in so many food recipes ,so should we just keep everything in moderation or try to substitute something else for sweetness?
    what about brown sugar ,I know raw sugar is more good but it is difficult to substitute raw sugar in everything cos of its prominent different flavor,but brown sugar is barely noticeable

      Small amounts of white sugar are OK.

      Brown sugar is white sugar spray-painted with caramel or molasses.

      Raw sugar is illegal in the U.S.
