How effective would it be to bulk up while restricting carb intake (to only pre and post work out) as opposed to bulking without trying to cut back? I am restricting my carbs in order to avoid fat gain since I do not handle them well, being a former fat kid.
I have read the “testimonies” of several members on diets such as AD and they seemed happy with strength and weight gain/fat loss.
However, I’ve had several recent conversations with nutritionists working at my gym that tell me that it would be silly to try and restrict carbs and bulk at the same time.
I’d also be glad if someone could share personal results from bulking with and without (or with restricted) carbs.
