So I’m currently in the process of leaning out using Berardi’s Massive Eating methods. However, I believe I’ve run into a contradiction. In his old articles (Don’t Diet in Appetite for Construction, and his Lean Eating articles), he advocates P+C for your first three meals, C ratio dependent on your sensitivity, and then P+F for your last three meals, vegetables and low-GI, limited consumption of fruits with every meal. So far so good.
Now, in Massive Eating Reloaded, he identifies nutrient timing (which I understand would be integrated into the “taper” method described above), so your P+C would happen post-workout and your P+F pre-workout.
Now, in Massive Eating Reloaded and Gourmet Nutrition, there is no mention
of what to do on non-workout days. Am I limited to just eating P+F, with only fruits and vegetables? According to his new articles, oatmeal is no longer good in the mornings? Does the P+C x3, P+F x3 taper still apply? I’d love to have this clarified. Thanks guys!
