Carb Refeed?


I'm on a pretty strict diet that consists of about 125g of carbs on a normal day, 1g protein per lb of body weight with the rest being good fats.

I had a carb fest tonight. What do you think about about 1 large bag of popcorn and a large coke at the movies for a carb up meal? :slight_smile:

At the end of the day, it probably isn't BAD BAD, but probably not good either. Hehehe.


High fructose corn syrup won't do much for anything but your liver and your love handles.


One meal doesn't work well. Also, HFCSyrup is a poor carb source as it only refills liver glycogen and not muscle.



Dont forget to add the snow caps in with the popcorn. Pure tri-gly oil tastes good on top too..
