During 12 week diet, was planning to use the following carb manipulation:
**starting weight 190 lbs.
weeks 1-2 regular carb intake approx. 180 grams /day
weeks 3-6 zig-zag (alternate low- 150g, med- 180g, high- 210g carb days)
weeks 7-10 regular (180g) carbs throughout the week, one double (360g) carb day
week 11- low carb (150g)
week 12- low to high carb (gradually built up throughout the week)
Obviously, adjustments can be made throughout, depending on progress- or lack there of.
