Question on carbs daily distribution following your Best Damn Diet guidelines when adjusting to muscle/weight gain. I also follow your advice on 3 weeks blitz eating surplus followed by 1 week eating maintenance or deficit depending on how im progressing/looking, works great!
Currently I have 4 meals plus a pre/during amino workout drink, the breakdown is as follows:
Meal 1- Protein / Fat
Workout Drink- 100g Maltedextrin / 15g MCT Oil
Meal 2- Protein/ Fat
Meal 3- Protein / Carbs 100g / Fat
Meal 4- Protein / Carbs 200g / Fat
Total calories are just over 3,000 and feeling great with this distribution structure whether I’m in a surplus or deficit. I’m putting all this down very easily especially Meal 4 with 200g carbs (look forward to it each night, could easily up carbs in either meals 3 or 4), but with this my weight hasn’t seemed to move up over the last 2 surplus blitz’s.
Obviously you would look to increase calories but as a first change would distributing my total carbs to include meal 2 make a difference in chances of weight gain. I actually feel better and prefer not having carbs in meal 2 after my workout, which is why I have pushed them back to meals 3 and 4, but would having carbs in more meals throughout the day have an effect on weight gain, or does it not matter?
Thanks for the help appreciate it,
