To answer your questions, it has been working great so far. I mean I’m 280 and I’m probably at 13-14% bf at most right now. I ask because once I started separating my meals into P+C and P+F I made incredible LBM gains while dropping a little bodyfat. I am just wondering if I can enhance that effect even further by following that rule 100%. In the end all the little things DO add up.
Jmou it is not a myth, it has something bodybuilders have been doing successfully for years and will continue to do so. If I spike my insulin with carbs and then eat a lot of fat, the fat will be stored. It’s just common sense. This approach allows me to eat well over maintenance and so far I have had no bodyfat issues. Believe me, I’ve tried both ways.
Well ratchet I’m just trying to restore glycogen, I workout about 3 hours after breakfast and these slow digesting carbs really give me the energy so I can maintain intensity while I lift. That’s not a bad idea though. Maybe I’ll drop the oats and up it to 1 dozen eggs, it’s worth a shot.
Any other thoughts guys?
I’m simply going to respond by posting these two articles and simply say “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink”.

Bodybuilding Nutrition Round Table:
^^^ pay close attention to this part: “J Beaty: What are your thoughts on the reemergence of the macronutrient food combining theory where carbs shouldn’t be mixed with protein/fat meals and fat shouldn’t be mixed with protein/carb meals?”

Jmo here’s the thing. I built my base with P+F+C ok? It allowed me to build a huge amount of muscle but I also had more bf than I wanted. I am at the point now where I have enough mass, I just want to continue to make LBM gains while dropping some BF.
I know it works, but it’s not what I’m after right now. Articles don’t mean shit to me. I’ve tried both ways, I know how my body responds to both methods, and right now separating the macros is what works for me. That’s the only thing that matters.
Interesting reads though, thank you.
