Arrow Yohimbine on keto

Hey all,

As far as I'm aware, the presence of insulin in the bloodstream prevents yohimbine from inhibiting a2 receptors, practically rendering supplementation of yohimbine useless from a fat loss perspective. As such, it is only useful to use yohimbine when one is in a fasted state. I remember reading somewhere on the forums (or possibly in the stubborn fat protocol book) that insulin levels return to near - fasting levels 3-4 hours after an average "meal".

If one is on a ketogenic diet, would insulin levels return to fasted levels quicker after a meal than on a standard isocalorie diet, meaning using yohimbine maybe 1-2 hours after a meal would provide some benefit?

Actually, does a typical keto meal affect insulin levels much at all? Assuming you have around 30g protein or so at a meal, I'd think it would, but I'm curious as to how much it would raise insulin vs a standard isocalorie meal.

From a practical standpoint, I'm just wondering this because I always do my cardio after my lift which is performed after I get off work. Fasting until 7-8pm is just not feasible, and honestly I usually have a terrible lift unless I have some kind of meal an hour or so beforehand. I was thinking practically, I have a high fat/moderate protein meal around 4pm, lift around 5:30-6:30 and take yohimbine sometime during the lift so it's circulating in my bloodstream before I hit the LISS machine of choice afterward. Just wondering if the yohimbine is even useful at that point (would be about 2.5 hours after my last keto meal).
