I just have a question about cutting, its been 4 weeks and ive been doing the 100 carbs a day protocal and other calories split between protein and fats…
I’ve gotten pretty lean in the past doing low carbs, so i am kind of “scared” increasing carbs if you know what i mean
I’ve always done low carb to keto for cutting, but i see a lot of people cutting on 40/40/20 splits or something to that effect and i am wondering why so many body building articles preach lower carbs if its cals in vs cals out. I get that carbs increase insulin and that may be the reason or maybe its because carb is the preferred fuel for the body, but other than that, why is it preached in the body building world? (Christian Thibadeau for one example)
Also, why is it when i am on low carbs, even if i increase my carb intake but still remain in a caloric deficit, the weight on the scale increases? Doesn’t my body use the energy for the day? If its used, theres no way it can go to my glycogen storage?
