Currently I take in around 350g of carbs per day. Usually these are spread over 4 meals (~80 at breakfast, ~90 at lunch, ~30-40 preworkout, and the rest post workout)
My question is this.. Because insulin is released proportionate to the amount of carbs taken in.. Would it be more beneficial to energy levels throughout the day to spread my 350g over smaller meals? That way insulin is not being released so rapidly at one time.
And would this affect fat storage? Since the extra triglycerides are stored by the body, would taking in smaller amounts at a time prevent that spillover effect? I understand it's ultimately cals in vs. cals out but could there be a difference (although small)?
Any feedback/discussion would be appreciated.. Just some brainstorming thoughts I had today.
Side note/question: do you still eat the same amounts of carbs on rest days and lifting days?
