  • Im on the anabolic diet. i average around 12g a day of carbs during the week and weekends i bump up to anywhere from 500-800g a day. luckily for me my body works well from fats.

    • No more than 100-150g/day offseason and 50-60g/day pre-contest.
      For the moment I get most of my carbs from lowcarb-corn and a small amount of vitargo post training.

          Got me 200-250g of delicious fats & 350-400g of musclebuilding proteins into the machinery every day.
          Keeps me in supershape at 4-5% 240lbs all year around.
          Just drop the carbs pre-contest, like 6w out, and comes in ripped and ready

            I eat 250-325 grams of carbs a day, variations between off days and training days. based on these shots is that to much for my somatotype?

            Protein is 300-325 a day and fats a 80-100 a day. Using a DP offseason diet right now and have been since December 5th 2008. Seems to be working as for weight gain and strength gains so far, body comp is holding pretty well also.

            Thoughts?

              All you need for your somatotype is 50-60g carbs for meal 1, PWO, PWO2. When you increase cals from now on, simply leave those carbs in place, while adding fats.

                Note taken! Thanks much Myth!

                Fats are at 15g (1 Tbsp) per meal right now (except post workout) from olive oil, enova or sesame oils. That sound about right to you?


                My post workout is vitargo, if I have 60 grams of that with 50 grams whey iso, my next whole food meal would then be fats and proteins right? How long would you suggest I wait to eat again? Right now its 90 minutes.

                  do LBM x .085-.115 for grams fat per meal, making sure to eat every 2.5-3 hrs you are awake (this is very important-->you don't ever want to risk cheating your metabolism by eating a set # meals with no regard to time spent awake, which is a primary constituent of BMR)

                  60-90' after PWO1 is the perfect time to eat PWO2

                          Actually I made a mistake in that post as Id never go that high in pro for women. 1.25 is sufficient.

                          Men I use 1.5 to 2 depending on restrictction of carbs and fats.

                            Why???? Do you realize the power of a potato? Its a vegetable and that means POWER PACKED with nutrients to the point you can never match with any other carb or pill expecially its potassium content which is ONLY absorbable in food or liquid source.

                            • Ok, feel free to clear this one up for me anyone...

                              There seems to be two forms of thought regarding Fat / Carbs for energy and muscle growth. One group says the body naturally prefers carbs for energy and it is essential to building muscle. The other group says carbs are like gasoline to the body but fat is like "jet fuel" and is the most anabolic energy source the body absolutely needs - hence "essential" fatty acids and once the body is switched to using fats for fuel it works and feels better overall. Again, I’m hearing carbs are essential and then carbs are not so essential.

                              Which approach to diet works best for losing fat and preserving or building muscle at the same time?
                              (High Pro/Fat – Low Carb w/ refeeds for glycogen purposes)
                              or
                              (High Pro/Carb - Low fat)

                              Is there a common ground to prove a clear answer to this or do we refer back to the “everyone’s body works differently”?

                                Is this a trick question because one is a contest protocol the other a weight gaining protocol. No high carb diet can ever fuel fat loss....Ever....
