Hi. CT says in his locker room:
Even if a low carbs diet has a metabolic advantage over high carbs eating, if you consume too much calories compared to what you use, you will gain fat. That having been said, you can eat a bigger surplus on a low carbs diet than on a moderate/high carbs one.
I wouldn’t recommend cardio. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. It will slow down your strength and size gains, especially on a low carbs diet.
What I don’t understand is why you “can eat a bigger surplus on a low carbs diet.”
I thought the math was always true - if you eat 1000 cals over maintenece you will gain that much weight - is he saying that if you’re 1000 in excess with F+P you’ll gain less weight than if those 1000 were from P+C?
