my friend, you have lots of reading to do to answer why fish oil would help one recover faster…lol. But yeah, I’ll have pancakes, sushi, grits, milk, etc. Because you don’t eat like this EVERYDAY (ultra high carb) day in, day out, and you keep it on a day in which you’ll burn tons of calories, it really doesn’t make a difference where your carb sources come from. The whole point is to fill up your glycogen stores, and eating white over brown rice won’t make too much of a difference. [/quote]
Dratner you have to ask yourself WHY? ALWAYS! “Doing this and that will make you bigger.” WHY? “Eat this and you will lean out.” WHY? Once you start answering your ‘WHY’S’ for yourself NO ONE CAN FUK WITH YOU! You will save countless hours reading if you truly know WHY!
I’ve read many carb cycling articles… The majority of them tell you to keep your fat intake to a minimum on high carb days. Including EFA’s. After reading these diets I had to answer the question to WHY fat’s should be kept at a minimum INCLUDING EFA’S!?
Many people including yourself think that the whole point of a high carb day is to fill up glycogen storage. THIS IS NOT TRUE!!! The whole point is not just to fill up glycogen but to also stimulate the royal fat burning hormone known as Leptin!! Leptin is released by stored fat white adipose tissue and travels to your brain letting your brain know hey I’m fueled! Let’s roll! The amounts of leptin released tell your brain how much energy or fuel your body has similar to a gas gauge in a car. When Leptin level’s get high your brain get’s the message that “Hey we’re fueled and not only are we fueled we’re spilling gas out we need to drive and burn some gas!” With this message the brain increases fat burning and energy expenditure, stimulates fat burning in your muscle and liver. Resulting in fat loss… And a much leaner physique!!
Studies have shown that insulin levels are 50% lower in individuals who supplement with fish oil and other EFA’s… This is great!! BUT NOT ON A HIGH CARB DAY! ON A HIGH CARB DAY WE WANT HIGH INSULIN LEVELS THROUGHOUT THE DAY TO PROMOTE THE RELEASE OF LEPTIN FROM WHITE ADIPOSE TISSUE! A 50% DECREASE IN INSULIN IS KEEPING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF HOW MUCH LEPTIN TRAVELS TO YOUR BRAIN. IN DECREASING THE POTENTIAL OF LEPTIN BY TAKING FISH OIL’S ON HIGH DAYS YOUR DECREASING YOUR POTENTIAL OF A RIPPED PHYSIQUE. YOU HAVE TO REALLY TRICK YOUR MIND AND BODY TO GET DOWN TO 3% BODYFAT FROM CARB CYCLING THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT.
