I am about to start a week of “active rest” after 8 weeks of TBT where I will do more outdoors type of exercise and take a break from the weights. What would be the ideal way to treat my meals/calorie intake during this period? Should I aim for a maintenance level whilst still following the “rules” or just eat like any other normal person for week just for a change? I remember reading about eating during a rest week in an article by either JB or LL but I can’t seem to find it again. Any advice would be appreciated.
Also, do any of you know what a good macronutrient profile and calorie intake would be if I was to do more endurance exercise (ie cycling and swimming) for a month or so? I assume that I would need a higher carb ratio but would like some confirmation.
