Im doing CT's Superhero program along with carb cycling. The diet calls for 2 grams of protein per lb of body weight with under 75 grams of carbs on the low days. This would mean I need to ingest 440g of protein on these days. My question is, do I count the carbs coming from protein shakes? I upped the amount of whey on those days and 3 shakes with 2 scoops would be roughly 24 grams of carbs...I guess I should eat no grains on those days and stick to the whey and grilled chicken?
My main concern is the carbs coming from my protein shakes because I do ingest a lot of them throughout these low days on top of like tuna with low carb wraps (roughly 5g carbs each)...also almonds have 5g of carbs per 1/4 cup serving. It just seems hard to hit 440g of protein while eating under 75g carbs
