I'm planning on buying Low-Carb Grow!, what do you recommend to mix it w/ for tastes? What flavor do you recommend?
I enjoy reading health and fitness books, I have read "The Book of Muscle" "Hard-Body Plan" by Larry Keller and "Nutrient Timing" by John Ivy, PhD, & Robert Portman, Phd. I thoroughly enjoyed them all but I enjoyed Nutrient Timing so much I read it twice. Are there any books you could recommend that would be good educational reads?
I'm 5'6" 150lb between 12-15% bf. I'm an easy gainer so I'm constantly going through bulking and cutting phases, to try to keep my bf around 10. Instead of going through bulking and cutting phases I was reading/considering a different approach:
Eat 200 calories above caloric equilibrium.
Eat High-glycemic carbs only during the Energy and Anabolic phases surrounding my workout, which would be about 80g carbs.
Then during the growth phase (the rest of the day and the next day until my next workout) only take in at max 20 complex carbs.
One downside to this I understand is lack of energy, which I haven't had a problem with in past with low-carb diets but if I do, I will just pop in two HOT-ROX before my workouts.
What is your opinion of this alternate approach are there modifications that will make this more successful for someone to gain muscle without fat?
