Hi. I've been trying to clean up my diet based upon Berardi's articles and I had a few questions about them.
First of all, why does he say that peanuts are not included in the list of sources of good fats?
Also, he mentions that you shouldn't eat carb + protein meals before working out but to then have some Surge or equivalent right before and after working out and then more carb and protein meals for the next 6 hours. However, I have also heard that you are supposed to have carbs for breakfast to halt catabolism. So what if I workout after breakfast? Should I have protein and fats only for breakfast then? Or could I workout on an empty stomach with only Surge and just have breakfast after? It seems that may not be so good for you since you don't have a lot of nutrients already in your blood to be taken up. Would just a scoop or two of Surge be enough to get me throught the workout and leave enough to repair tissue?
Also, Berardi says to consume casein before bed because it is slow digesting. Is meat also slow digesting?
Finally, there is a 10 g. carb limit on fat and protein meals...can those carbs come from anything, even if it is high GI like milk or flour?
I'd really appreciate any help you can give to me.
