    This "study" states that lower carb intake hampers muscle recovery. What it doesn't mention is the 300 fewer total calories the subjects consumed on the lower carbohydrate diet. Over time, this would lead to reduced muscle recovery and performance from a simple total calorie intake perspective.

    C'mon man. You can't correlate a low carb diet with a higher carb diet accurately, unless total calorie content is equal.

    Agreed. That's not a fair comparison.

    It's about the calories, depending on your training regimen and your program, IMO.
