Hey guys. I’m getting on the Anabolic Diet in about 2 weeks, so I’d like to set up an outline of my diet this weekend to have everything prepared and ready to go when the time comes to go on it. My questions are the following…
- How does PWO nutrition play into this diet? Do you still use a High GI carb source to spike your insulin or no? According to the guidelines, I should not consume more than 30 G of carbs a day. However, my regular PWO nutrition includes 60 G of carbs. What should I do?
My guess is that the benefits of a PWO insulin spike outweigh any silly dietary guideline, so on weight training days, I was planning to just have no carbs the whole day and go ahead and continue to have my 60 G after my workout. What do you guys think?
- While formulating my diet, should I follow the principles of temporal nutrition by structuring it so I get the bulk of my calories in my breakfast, and then reduce my caloric intake per meal as the day progresses? Example :
If I’m going to be taking in 2500 calories a day, which set up is better?
Setup A - 415,415,415,415,415,415
Setup B - 665,565,465,365,265,165
I ask this because I followed a setup similar to Setup B while I was on my cutting diet, and I was wondering if this setup was still the most favorable for using on a clean bulk (when I start it) to help minimize fat gain.
A brief explanation of what I’m trying to accomplish…On my current diet, I currently take in less than 2000 calories, so I don’t want to just slam my metabolism with 3000 calories out of nowhere.
When I get off this diet in 2 weeks, I plan to use the Anabolic Diet at first to find out what my maintenance caloric intake is and start by bumping up my daily caloric intake by 500 calories.
If I gain weight by the end of the week, I’ll lower it by 250. If I lose weight, I’ll add 250. I’d just like to take this summer to enjoy my hard earned low body fat, figure out my maintenance caloric intake, and have my body get accustomed to the Anabolic Diet.
Then, in about 2 months, I should have a good idea of what my maintenance caloric intake is, at which point I’ll bump it up another 500 calories or so and begin my clean bulk. What do you guys think? As always guys, your help is appreciated.
