I went to a Biosignature modulation reading yesterday. BioSignature Modulation is a systematic approach to losing unwanted body fat in specific locations "Spot reduction". The science behind BioSignature Modulation comes from skin fold data Charles Poliquin has gathered over the past 20 years and comparing his data against blood, urine and saliva tests to determine a clients specific hormone imbalance

Charles Poliquin has discovered 12 specific sites that can be measured to scientifically determine what hormones need to be optimized and which supplements can be used to achieve rapid results in fat loss.

Take away points:

1. My bodyfat percentage is at 11%, this is from a 13 point reading which is more accurate than the 3 point(chest, thigh and love handles) reading which puts me around 9-10%.

2. The main problem point I need to address is cortisol, followed by insulin.

3. Excess coffee, and Optimum Nitrition's Amino energy supplement post workout(loaded with caffine) are elevating my cortisol levels. These things are best used pre workout and nothing else.

4. Regulating cortisol will control insulin fluctuations.

5. The darker the skin, the more likely one is deficient in Vitamin D.

6. Sleep quality needs to improve, supplement with Magnesium.

7. Follow Charles poliquin's HCL test to check if my body is producing enough hydrochloric acid in response to food.

8. Increase fish oil intake to control insulin better.

Supplementation changes:

1. Increase Vitamin D3 dose to 4000iu.

2. Add 2 capsules of magnesium before bed.

3. Coffee or Amino energy pre workout only.

4. A good multivitamin 2 times a day is the foundation for all further supplementation.

5. Take ZMA and Magnesium with fat/fish oil for best absorbtion.

6. 300-400 mg phosphatidylserine helps lower cortisol - best taken before bed.

Well, time to make these changes and take my body to the next level :-)
