Has anyone tried the carb cycling method when training around 1800, with insulin pre and/or post training or with any success in general?
My diet structure for carb cycling is as follows:
0600-carb/protein meal for glycogen reload following sleeping.
0900, 1200, 1500 fats/protein ok.
1700 (pre trg: 30ml MCT+ no carb pre workout
2000-70g dextrose, BCAA, vit C, 2015 30g protein & 60g oats(30g carbs)
2200-oats/brown rice (100)g carbs, chicken & broc.
Although i should be having more carbs (390 on moderate days) and have a generally high carb diet, more than 100g carbs/meal seems excessive. Anyone's thoughts on this? Even with insulin, 10g carbs/IU of insulin is the standard, so anymore than this without that chemical aid seems like a good recipe for fat storage.
Also, 100g carbs an hour before bed? Surely glycogen refill would be complete and this is overkill?
I would like to reload glycogen post training with 10IU insulin around 2000 with a similar carb protocol, although only 50g carbs at 2200.
Can anyone provide any feedback or thoughts on this method of eating.
