Hi, i have started the anabolic diet(<30g carbs) since like 2 weeks, i had a carb load (24hrs) last saturday. I have to say that before this i have been on a moderate carb/cutting diet (like 70-80g carbs per day)
The thing is that when i’m on my grappling/judo workout i don’t feel the energy that i need, sometimes i feel dizzy, and my friends told me that i was palid and looked sick.
On this week i was thinking on eating carbs, when i see carbs anywhere it makes water in my mouth. But always i resist. I have willpower, but it pisses me off the fact that o have to count the “healthy” carbs (Like some tomatoes, onions, apples, berries, etc…) And the only thing that i would like to have are some apples. Just healthy apples…
So i hust red an article in Bodybuilding.com in which appears a K-1 fighter who used some kind of “modified” Anabolic diet. In which the autor (Dr. Mauro) says that this fighter goes from a moderate to low carbs in the week, to a moderate to high carbs in the weekend.
I was saying: “Thank god!!” 'cause i could follow that kind of diet, taking some natural anabolic advantages from the diet, AND eating some healthy carbs (fruit and all kinds of veggies, the ones that give me vitamins) which i need for my high intensity training (judo and my HIIT conditioning).
But the bad thing is that the author does not mention the percentages or the amount of carbs that that fighter was using (actually he was a BIG guy).
Obviusly the AD focus on weightlifting sports (bodybuilding/powerlifting). But what happens when you are in a combat sport, in which you need carbs for energy since the high intensity of the combat? You feel like CRAP. Because in the High intensity sports you use mostly carbs as fuel.
My question is: what kind of percentages in the diet(carbs protein fats) should i use to get the best of this diet? I mean, that i can succesfully train, do my weightlifting workout and my HIIT conditioning ?
