I’ve been trying the anabolic diet for two weeks, and I’m not crazy about the way it makes me feel - my attention span is horrible, and at times I feel like I’m sleepwalking. This is during the week. Weekends are a bit more normal.
To clarify, I lot a bunch of weight (80 lbs) a few years ago, and have plateaud ever since. Been lifting weights in that time since, but have no desire to get huge - just want to get lean and compact.
Given the AD’s emphasis on the weekend carb loading, I’m wondering if it’s right for a guy who just wants to lose his last little bit of stubborn fat. Should I be doing Atkins instead, if I’m not interested in becoming Mr. Olympia?
