Guys, looking a bit of advice here…
I’ve been training for over 10 years and 5
months ago had to go on an extended layoff. While I was off I read up on the latest no-carb
diets and now that I am back I deicided to give them a try.
Well I resumed training two weeks ago and so
far it looks like I shed about 60% of fat that
I gained over the past 5 months.
I have a problem though:
I can’t gain a shred of strength or muscle mass. I mean, when I get on the gym floor it’s
a major drag to get through the whole workout.
I feel flat - zero pump and I can’t lift shit!
So, while losing fat is all great, it’s been incredibly hard to make a comeback on a llow carb diat.
Yesterday I decided to screw it, went out and
ate load of egg sandwiches (with bread) and some pancakes - all about 2.5 hours before training. Then I want to the weight room and
had a friggin’ blast! Of course now I am confused as to whether I should always carb load before the workout and whether this is going to stop any further fat loss in its tracks.
So, what’s the real deal here? Is carb loading before training on a zero carb diet the right thing to do?
Or should I just go on a “normal-carb” diet for
now just to build up what I’ve lost and then
worry about fat loss later?
