Just curious to know which has been the best dietary approach you have found. Details such as how much fat, carbs and proteins you were intaking, where your carbs came from (fats and proteins I assume came from good fats and fish/meat or shakes), cycling, etc.
I am currently not dieting, but when I eventually decide to cut down I’d like to lose the least muscle whilst maximising the amount of fat I lose. So far I have read a lot about nutrition but there is no clear cut approach or real life feedback supplied with real life values etc.
At the moment I am torn between two approaches:
Extremely low carbs for 2 days and then refeed on the third day and repeat. Example, 2000 calories for 2 days on close to zero carbs and then add 800 calories on the third day from carbs (such as brown rice and oats). 1g per lb of protein and the remainder is good fats.
Low carbs (I’d say about 100 - 150g depending on how drowsy I get) coming from oats in the morning but mainly from low GI fruits and non-starchy vegetables. Then the usual 1g per lb of protein and the remainder is good fats.
Anyone have any feedback on these two approaches? Maybe something alternative to these two which worked well for you?
