It depends on your carb tolerance. Some people can cut just fine while ingesting a fairly high amount of complex carbs while others (the majority I’d say) aren’t so lucky and really have to limit the amount to only around workout times. It also depends on your present state of leaness as the leaner you become, the more carb tolerant you become.
This really sums it up nicely. Also realize that you can allow your carb intake to fluctuate daily depending on what you will be doing training wise. ie. When I cut, I keep carbs really low on my off or cardio days, but then will ingest quite a bit (within reason) on my chest days. You’re going to have to play around a bit to see what works for you.
Indeed Stu…I remember an article by CT on carb cycling where he suggests taking in the highest amount of carbs on days you train weak points.
