I’d probably take in 37.6 carbs a day, give or take .2 carbs either way. That’ll be $34.99.
As GS said before, just experiment. My body wasn’t responding very well to the continuing VLCD I was giving it and started to feel the effects so I started eating around maintanence cals and tried a few different things. Eating carbs strictly in the morning and after workouts caused me to gain a little fat while eating around 30 carbs a day with 1 carb up day at maint cals caused to stay the same weight.
I don’t respond well to carbs period besides post-workout for longer durations of time right now. That’s just me, but I did have to experiment to find out. Thibs and a few others have mentioned that you have to “earn” your ability to eat carbs once you’ve stayed lean for awhile. This does not mean I’m going to go into a frenzy of carbs after I solidify a lean physique blindly following an article. I’ll experiment again, maybe they’ll be right for me, maybe not.
Just try things out for a little awhile and see how it goes, only way to tell.
That’ll be another $34.99
