After browsing past threads, I note that this has been raised previously. From what I read, conclusions were only tentatively drawn and there seems to be a differnce of opinion. On one hand, Alessi advocates the T-Dawg Diet for use with Meltdown Training. At 100g a day its a low carb diet that might have implications in terms of lactic acid production (or lack thereof) which is the driving force in the philosophy governing Meltdown Training. On the other hand, Jason N. raised the point that carbs are necessary for adequate production of lactid acid and without them, Meltdown could be highly catabolic. The science behind this is sound, but tends to contradict what the author of the program advocates.
I’m about to commence a cutting cycle and am really interested in the best way to eat for Meltdown Training. Currently, I’m thinking a 40P/30C/30F breakdown (10-12x BW in calories) is going to keep carbs low enough to aid in fat loss, but at a level where lactic acid can be produced and any catabolism avoided. Your thoughts, T-Mag-ers?
