If you really want to cut, or at least continue gaining strength while limiting fat gains, try limiting carbs after 5 or 6 pm to just those that come from vegetables. If that doesn’t work, try going low-carb (keeping fat intake moderate, not low) on non-workout days. Try doing these things and see if it helps before going on an all out 100% devoted cutting cycle.[/quote]
What he’s essentiall talking about is carb cycling. The idea being that carbs can be better utilized (or the insulin reponse they produce) at breakfast and around training sessionss.
It’s really very easy to carb cycle; I do it almost instinctually.
On training days:
Eat starchy carbs at breakfast (oatmeal, rice, etc.)
Pre/post work out:
eat fast carbs and protein (stuff like Surge. I eat some fruit and whey before and after, works for me)
1 hour after your Post training nutrition:
eat a balanced meal with complete lean protein, Complex carbs (rice, oatmeal, etc.) and some veggies.
Don’t eat carbs any other time of the day: stick to protein+fat meals and veggies.
Try that out for a month and see what happens. If you’re still concerned, just go for a long walk every day or throw in some interval work on one of the weekend days.
