I’ve been reading a lot lately about how carbs are unnecessary, especially because I’m trying to trim some fat off. I eat veggies, but no grains or potatoes.
You said that you were bulking… carbs are necessary for glycogen and intensity in the gym. I forgot about you and your posts.
I’m done here.
Man, I have come a long way since that first post! I am taking in carbs after every lift session and throughout the day from vegetables. [/quote]
in my honest opinion, it sounds like you have a mild eating disorder.
but don’t worry, you certainly aren’t the only one on this board who does (including myself)
i want you to repeat this mantra: “carbs don’t make me fat, calories do. carbs don’t make me fat, calories do. carbs don’t make me fat, calories do.” etc…
listen man, it is OK to eat carbs (yes, even refined carbs) outside of the postworkout window. they don’t magically make you fat unless you are in a caloric surplus. the same can be said for ANY macronutrient.
the more people get this through their head, the faster people will start making progress.
and yeah, your protein is really fucking high. lower it to 1g/lb or therabouts.
