Hi all, as the title says, share what it is your favorite insulin here? I think this can be pretty helpful for some people out there in finding better alternatives etc. to start off, my favorite one is Apidra. The reason is that for me, it just hits so much more faster and much harder compared to all the others that I have tried. To compared them all, I would say that the Novolog would be my second choice and the Humalog is also pretty good as it would be my third choice. Nevertheless, there’s nothing, at least so far, to beat Apidra as personally for me, even IM Humalog is not going to peak until about 2 hours or so and that’s in the time the Apidra is going to peak right at 60 minutes mark. Would be interesting in see what would other people share here.April 11, 2018 at 7:13 am #2743
Hey there, would like to ask you, what are the gains in the lean body mass like on Slin? Would be interested to get a responseApril 11, 2018 at 7:36 am #2744

To be honest, I really like Apidra as well, it is quite good, and to be honest, Novolog it is quite the same for me to be honest. But so far, Humalog it is what I am using right now but to be honest, that’s mostly because this is what my insurance company has agreed to cover. But yeah, as you (I can guess) I am doing most of my insulin in IM type and usually, I am able to feel the peak of them after approximately one hour (fastest), to about an hours and a half or even to 2 hours as well (the longest time), pretty much as you. I have got low the last night during my workout, not very sure but I can guess that it is because I have not drank my Gatorade as quick as I had to. To be honest, I got pretty low as I have had to sit down and to sip it and then, simply to wait for the carbs to finally hit the bloodstream so then to keep on going further.
And by the way, in regards to this:

Personally for me, Slin can really help to pile on the weight, at least for me, however I have noticed that for me, if it’s on its own then it is equally anabolic for both muscle and fat tissue as well. I would say that it pairs quite well with the growth hormone due to the fact that the growth hormone is going to help with keeping it all lean and that’s in the time that the insulin is basically going to stop any and all tissue breakdown which is all very good so to my opinion it is better to give it a mix.
But anyway, in the end, all in all, with the right diet and with some other drugs in your regimen, I really think that insulin can be very and very helpful, but that’s if using it correctly, pretty much as anything else. in fact, to be honest, I wouldn’t be really shocked at all to hear that someone could gain like 10 or maybe even some more pounds per month in the first few months of using the insulin. And yeah, I know you haven’t asked me that question but I hope this would be any helpful.April 12, 2018 at 7:40 am #2745
Yeah, I do agree with the fact that you can gain in the first months of using it, that’s totally correct. However I have gained only 6 pounds during my first month only and after that, I still have been gaining, but much more slower since then. But yeah, as you said, I wouldn’t be surprised hearing someone did it the way you explained. I personally have stayed lean but as we all know (I guess), if you want to stay lean then you need to eat the right foods only and the right amounts during your window.April 12, 2018 at 7:47 am #2746
Hi there, to be honest here, Humulin R, by far is my favorite. Not sure if any of you have tried it but those who didn’t, I suggest to try it. not sure how for others, but for me it is doubtlessly the best! It has a longer active life so I’m anabolic that much longer! For me, Humalog simply has spiked too high but it has not been in there for long enough in order to do much good and have the benefits, but this could be only my opinion. Whatever the case, Humulin R is for me the best without any doubts as I have gained more on this product in the 2 months period that I have gained in the 4 or maybe even 5 months while I have bene on Humalog.April 12, 2018 at 7:50 am #2747
well, I am not very sure but, it does sounds to me as if you were not actually eating enough during the active window. Not sure though, just what it seems.April 17, 2018 at 12:52 pm #2749

Hey there, I would say that the biggest advantage that the Humalin R has it is the fact that you’re able to purchase it without a prescription, something that, to my opinion, all these drugs should be.
But something that you might need to know is the fact that the R types of insulin are taking approximately 8 hours or so to clear all the way but they are taking approximately 2 hours or so before they are going to peak. In addition to that, the peak activity window is also being open for a longer period of time as well as it is nearly 3 hours or so. It is obvious that there are advances as well and some of the advantages that the R type has is that, you can take a fat shot around 30 minutes or so before you’re going to workout, after that you can lift and drink carbs and even after that, it is pretty likely that it is still going to be in there when you’re going to be hitting the post workout meal as well. Obviously, this is all very good.
However, simply to share my opinion, I do think that the drawback here is that the bigger the window of the insulin activity is then the more fats you’re going to be eating during this period of time, and the longer you are going to be in the anabolic state for your fat cells as well (the insulin it is preventing the breakdown of the fats). Even though pretty much depending on what else you’re being on then it may not be a very big reason for getting worried.
