Hey guys, I’m a newbie to training (only been training a year or so; started lifting April 2009) and also an absolute beginner in terms of nutrition.
I recently read Shelby Starnes’ carb cycling formula ( http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_nutrition/a_beginners_guide_to_carb_cycling )And ran the numbers, I’m not sure if I’m doing this right, though, or if this diet is even right for me (hence to forum post)
Info about me:
165 lbs (75kg); 13% bodyfat
Sport: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
Goals: Lowering body fat %; having enough energy to train
Monday: Upper Body push; BJJ at night (“High” Day)
Tuesday: Lower Body; (“High” Day)
Wednesday: Complexes; BJJ at night (“Medium” Day)
Thursday: Upper body pull (“Medium” day)
Friday: Lower Body Explosive; BJJ and MMA at night (“High” day)
Saturday: Speed&Agility Training; Complexes; maybe BJJ and MMA (“Medium” day)
Sunday: Off (“Low” day)
So I ran the numbers for the macronutrients in question:
Fat: as little as possible
I’m shooting blind, in a sense here, so any help at all is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
