I keep reading on this website that if you want to lose weight then you have to restrict your carbs. Yesterday, though, I was looking at the some bodybuilders’ pre-contest diets that I found on the internet, and it seems like they’re all eating awesome amounts of oatmeal, rice, and potatoes.
Why is that? It seems like if they wanted to get really cut for a contest they’d eat like no carbs (and they’re not doing it to pull water into their muscles either; they claim they eat like this starting 12 weeks or so before the contest)
I’ve been reading a lot about fat loss lately, and in particular about how to go about getting really lean, so any clarity from wisened, experienced members would be much appreciated.
