Has anybody had any success using the AD for gaining mass?
It seems like a lot of people have been talking about the Anabolic Diet lately so I went back through the archives and dug up the old Chris Shugart T-Nation article on the Anabolic Diet.
The article said that the diet could be used for mass phrases and the reasoning went something like:
When bodybuilders bulk with a lot of carbs, they gain, but only to end up losing a lot of muscle when they restrict carbs in their diet phase; by bulking on a low carb diet the body adjusts (or something like that).
The AD article called for initial calories to be 18 x Bodyweight, so for 200lb guy, that’s 3600kcal/day. (I’m 190).
I’m interested in anybody who has had actual real life experience with this. Anybody?
