    What would be a time frame of low carb dieting that would actually yield beneficial muscle building results once a high carb diet is assumed?

    Meaning, a phase of low carbs and then into a high carb phase.

    What I am curious is about is how long does the low carb period have to be, and can it be too long? Would the benefit of low carb dieting for this purpose die off after a few weeks?
    most of the 'weight' that goes on after a long diet is fat if it's done in a short period of time.

    • Hey Layne,I'm new to the md forum but I've seen your videos and articles on bb.com and am also a natural and I was just wondering could you tell me would a cortisol 'inhibitor' like 11-OXO badly effect your kidneys? From some articles I've read on the internet it would appear that low levels of cortisol may lead to kidney stones due to a build up of calcium I think. Thanks

      • you need cortisol to get the response in the body.

        • Layne - my first show as a natural is going to be a tough one. I'm 5'11', 220 pounds, and about 14% body fat... been measured with a pinch test at around 8% but with only the separation down my abs? I doubt 8% was accurate. I am still vascular in my arms, shoulders, and have good separation in my arms, shoulders, legs, traps, and my back looks great.

          I've noticed that I am very carb sensitive. I've added in 50 carbs to my diet and noticed crazy results in just a few weeks, so I know that I am not a hard gainer - I respond really well to carbs, but too much obviously would make me fat.

          My diet now - I've been doing 6 meals a day, 45P/50C/20F per meal, basically the 1:1:1 but a little less on the protein because I am 20, so I don't need as much.

          With all of that information, what kind of diet would you advocate? I'm really not sure how well a carb cycling diet is going to work for me because I seem to be sensitive to carbs. My original plan was doing a KETOSIS diet, but I've been reading some negative press on it - especially with naturals.

          I have about 5 weeks before I start this diet - any suggestions, anything you want me to do to figure out "how sensitive" I am?

          Any suggestions would be mint, Layne. Thank you.

          • Hey Layne, just a quick question that im curious as to what your opinion will be.

            Many people have been commenting about deep ass heavy squats and their effects on the waist line ect as well as deads, what are your thoughts on this? Do they have the same effect for naturals?

              I'm guessing Layne would advocate the pre contest diet he outlines here

              couple that with the updated FAQ and you have everything you need

                  I wouldn't suggest ketosis as I think it sounds as if you respond well to carbohydrates. have you read my article here http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne36.htm ? I think it may be of great aid to you

                    most those guys have big GH guts and they try to pass it off as being from 'heavy squats'. That is nonsense.

                    Either that or people who say they don't squat or deadlift because they don't want a big gut are just looking for an excuse not to do difficult exercises.

                    Top natural pro Dave Goodin has a tiny waist and he used to do powerlifting contests and even hit a 529 squat at 180 bodyweight!

                      if that's the case then I just learned something today, I'm afraid I haven't studied much about the connection between the two, so I'm sorry I can't be of more help

                        • I read your article and it makes sense - I just don't know how I'll lose fat when keeping carbs, I feel like I stay more or less the same composition when I take my carbs down. When I up them, I respond. I have 5 weeks to give it some thought. I appreciate your help, brother.

                            • layne could you check this out. need some advice on what to bring up, i want to good size. also, i was reading your posing article on bb.com and i still cannot do a lat spread to save my life. my lats are pretty good but i cant find the right pose to show it....any suggestions?

                              • you are trying to flex your back & not spread it. I honestly think that lats and arms are what you need to bring up. Unless I was in there in person to actually spread your scapula for you, it's hard for me to describe how to do it
