I've started reading the CBL book but one thing is confusing me, especially as I've read many threads on many forums about how people are going about this plan. It's the timing of the backloads, i.e ON workout days. Thing is, aren't you backloading for a workout the NEXT DAY, so doesn't it make more sense to consume all those carbs the DAY BEFORE, rather than on the workout days itself?
Isn't that the point of taking in the carbs, so your body utilises them on your NEXT workout? What good are they just hours after you workout? That isn't how the body works is it? All that food is going to take many many hours to get digested and work through your system, so makes sense you'd want it there for a workout the FOLLOWING DAY... but if you're working out, eating tons of carbs, then doing nothing the next day, where's the sense in that?
Am I totally off the mark here??
