I’m mostly a lurker around here trying to glean as much good info as possible. I’m an fFFB (that’s future Former Fat Boy–hey, positive thinking) and it was Shugart’s FFB article that helped me finally understand that 85% of the info out there is for hard gainers. I’m finally sorting through everything and getting on the right path, but it’s time for some nutritional help.
As an fFFB, I’m staying relatively low on carbs. Sure, I get some before noon, but afterwards the only carbs I get are from a few vegetables or maybe a Grow! Bar. But every once in a while a man just wants a hamburger. (Cow. It’s what’s for dinner.) The problem is the bun–too many carbs. On the bright side, my wife has found some low-carb bread at our local “natural foods” grocery. Apparently it’s made from Wheat Protein Isolate and cuts out almost all of the carbs. I think many of the Atkins people use the stuff.
My question is: Is this too good to be true? Is there really a low-carb bread that’s ok to eat? I don’t like to subscribe to Murphy’s Law, but I’m learning in the T-Nation world to take nothing for granted! So what’s the consensus, if any? Any FFB’s with feedback?
