Is it wise to try to limit carbs to say, 200g a day on a 3500+ calorie diet?
My main concerns would be over the elevated protein and fat intake as I doubt, but do not know, if it may have detrimental effects.
I’m asking as a self-identified FFB after reading the FFB Handbook. It didn’t seem to clarify the macronutrient ratios, but just said to limit excess carbs.
I gained quite a bit of fat on 3000 calories, and between 250-300g of carbs when I was bulking.
I gained a lot of strength too, but I think for me, that many calories, and carbs especially were too much, even when bulking.
The great majority of my carbs were clean too, and I even cut out any whole grains or oatmeal, and stuck mainly with veggies and fruit, and I stayed fat (still around 250g carbs, but cleaner).
I now have my carbs much lower, and my strength is staying the same, and in some cases I’m still getting stronger.
I think there are very different needs for different people.
Some kids can’t seem to gain weight with anything less than 4000 calories (lucky bastards).
