Done the CKD diet for a few weeks,didn't really mind it but it's not for me. I did lose few % of bodyfat so it wasn't a waste of time but i think i'm gonna do a carb cycle again since it fitted in with my training and what i eat better. This time i'm looking at following Christian Thibaudeau's CARB CYCLE CODEX. I just want to check my macro percentages and that i've got the right amounts based on my stats.
Weight: 160 lbs
LBM: 136 lbs
BMR x Activity Level: 2640 cals
So based on my stats and CT'S calculations i would need the following for the different days.
240g Protein,250g carbs,40g fat = 2320 cals
240g protein,200g carbs,40g fat = 2120 cals
240g protein,150g carbs,40g fat = 1920 cals
This is based exactly on what he said on the article but i'm not to sure about the numbers since i've just came off the CKD,which protein requirement is based on LEAN body mass rather than total. Also on the low days carbs seem a bit high compared to percentages on other carb cycles i've seen so i would possibly lower it to 50g of carbs and replace the calories lost with fat?
So if the above values seem alright then say so... If they look a bit dodgy for my stats then post a reccomended daily percentages for the high/mod/low days for me to lose fat.
My weekly breakdown will be:
Monday: Chest/Tris/Abs HIGH
Tuesday: Back/Bis/Forearms MOD
Thursday: Delts/Traps/Abs HIGH
Friday: Legs MOD
Another question is what type of training is better on your experience on a carb cycle diet?
