hey everyone. Im a long time lurker, really enjoying the articles and the sound advice contributed by everyone. Only recently last 4 months iv taken traning seriously in respect to diet, sleep and consistant training.
My training involves Leg/Shoulders, Chest/ Tris, Back/Bis, two days off then repeat.
Right now im trying to only keep carb intake around workouts around my work outs (40g during, 40g after), 40g from the litre of milk I drink a day and what ever carbs I get in from greens. Itâ??s a challenge to eat 3500 calories daily without pasta, oats, bread etc. In a typical training day I consume 320g protein 120g carbs 193g fats.
Im a bit soft around the edges, 165 pounds at 174cm with 18% bodyfat (not reliable estimation as my gf has never used the callipers before) Since there would be no point to loose weight as id slim down to nothing my goal is to pack on as much lean mass as I can (nothing original).
So the questions I was hoping someone could help me with are:
1. Is my carb intake of 120g on training days (80 being around workouts) and 40 on non training days too much? Will it inhibit the usage of fat as my bodyâ??s primary source of fuel?
how much fat is TOO much fat? (I dont eat junk, the fat comes from olive oil fish oil, meats, avocados etcâ?¦)
This question probably isnt the smartest (but thats why im a newbie) but is it easier to lean gain mass if I was to just go on a regular diet and timed eating good carbs then a low carb diet??
Anyway sorry for the essay haha im just keen to grow. Any advice and help would be appreciated.
