    I tend to keep my carbs pretty much even with protein unlike the majority who have carbs a bit higher. I go for about 400g in a day, possibly a bit higher on leg or back days, it depends really. Protein is also usually a bit higher than 400g with the incomplete proteins and amino acids blends.

            well I don't think you'll have access to the full text because unless you are at a university you can't view it. Here is a link to the abstract: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...=pubmed_DocSum

                I can only stay on that carb load for about 4 maybe 5 weeks at a time though, then I seem to become Hypo... so I lower down for a week or two, and then back up.
