Ok, so I’m racking my brain trying to calculate numbers according to the Carb Cycling Codex.
Height: 67 in
Weight: 155 lbs
BF: ~ 22%
According to the article, there should be 9 sets of calorie calculations:
bulk, maintenance, and cut, each having moderate, low and high carb days.
Also, Thib was saying to have 3 carb+protein meals and 3 carb+fat meals, so I am dividing my total grams of carbs and fats by 3 to get the amount to be consumed at each meal.
Now, here are the numbers I got:
On my Moderate-Cut day, I am getting 1 g of Fat ! (per my calculations, I mean)
On my High-Bulk/Cut/Maintenance day, I am getting 291 g of carbs, divided by 3 is almost 100 g of carbs per meal. Seems like a LOT of carbs.
Anyone use the Carb Codex with any success? Sounds like a great concept but it just seems overly complicated.
I would appreciate any help. Am trying to clean bulk for a while and am looking at lifting 3 days a week, total body, then HIIT twice a week (non lifting days), then two days OFF entirely from training.
