    I'm just curious, what does the rest of the diet/training consist of? Are you actually able to cut fat efficiently? Or are you already in decent enough shape year-round by eating as healthily as possible? Right now I'm on the Palumbo keto diet where you get maybe 30 grams of carbs a day.

      Am I able to cut fat efficiently??? I pinch a 20 on my abs offseson.

      I dont use carb restriction as my primary fat loss tool. I use cardio resperatory work for that.

      How much weight have you lost in how much time?

        I've lost 13 lbs in 4 weeks on Dave's diet. Of course, 7 lbs of mostly water weight came off in the first week, so excluding that, I've lost 6 lbs in the last 3 weeks.

        For the record, I'm only being curious; I'm simply interested in knowing about other dieting methods. I hope I haven't come across as a critic.

Now carboHYDRATE means exactly that HYDRATION of the muscle cell. Carbs store in a muscle cell as air does in a balloon. The more air in the ballloon the larger it becomes. Carbs along with proper fat intake is the ONLY thing that increaes muscle cell size. Your advice is for LOSING weight not gaining weight. If it were the case then we would all gain weight during contest dieting since the Protein is at its highest. Remember, If your diet alone WITHOUT training wont add weight ,good or bad, then adding caloric CARBOHYDRATE BURNING expenditure to it is a sure way not to gain any weight. In fact you might go backwards. I see it all the time. Guys use contest dieting protocols for muscle gaining purposes.
              Correct sir you are right carbs are just as important as protien the longer people stay on those low carb high protien diets the more carb senstive they will become those diets are not healthy only in my opinion for short term fat loss and that is it.I bet most of the people who stay on those diets way into their later years are going to become diebetic

                    • as of right now im on the polumbo diet so basically none!
                      but as the offseason goes! prob no more than 200-250 a day! i tend to put on to much body fat if i intake to many carbs! usually i do more on nontraining days as long as i lift the next day so i can use those calories for good!

                        • Wow. Some of you folks really slam the carbs.

                          • Right now, Palumbo style, but I'm thinking about incorporating carbs again daily, but just keeping them low with a refeed style day once a week. I'm also looking into other diets like the ABS diet (carb cycling). Any ideas on how they work for staying cut?

                            • 3 days are pretty much under 70 grams, then ill carb load for a couple days, 200-300~
                              also depends on my workout and what bodypart! ex: day before leg or back day i bust out my calories!
