Hi I was wondering if I could pick you guys brains.
I've been training for about a year and I'm trying to get cut. Now previously I'd always thought that I need high protein high fat and the get carbs down
I've just bought Powereating by Susan Kleiner.
On her burning fat section she state
Concentrate on carbs, They are critical to fat loss
They are required in celluar reactions involved in burning fat
They spare protein from being used as fuel, therefore its main job is to repair and building lean muscle tissue.
They restock glycogen leading to more powerful workouts
They have a thermic effect
Loaded with fibre which has many benefits.
She states as part of a fat loss training program u need 5grms per kg of bw.
Obviously many people have different theories on fat burning and this book was written in 98.
Is there more recent evidence to refute this?
