Thanks. I’ll put this on my “to do” list.
If anyone wants to share the modifications they’ve had to make as a former fattie (diet, training, supps, etc.) then feel free to add them to this thread or PM me.
Personally, I’ve found Glucorell’s RLA with Biotin to be a great supplement that aids the body in properly dealing with carbs. Being a “reactive hypoglycemic” (according to my physician), I don’t feel knocked on my ass after a heavy P+C or PWO meal when I am using RLA.
In addition, I’ve found Biotest’s HOT-ROX to be a big help when cutting. I get less carb cravings and I feel I am able to cut calories without much loss of muscle mass.
Personally, I don’t handle much over 150-175 grams carbs/day very well. I just get bloated and tend to see fat coming back, especially in the mid-section, when I’m over that amount on a regular basis, like say several weeks. Thus, I wasn’t pleased with the effects of massive eating when I did give it a try, since I don’t feel my body responded well to the high carb intake, even with fat intake being kept minimal (less than 75-80g/day).
I have a P+C meal first thing in the AM, then a P+F meal several hours later. Lunch is usually P+C, as is my pre-workout snack at 2 PM and PWO shake at 5 PM. Dinner is P+F and my last snack before bedtime (P+F) is generally 2 scoops Low-Carb Grow!, 5 OZ Hood Carb Countdown Fat Free Milk, with 1 TBSP natural PB and 1 TBSP Udo’s choice organic oil. On off days, its P+C first three meals and then P+F last three meals, with carb intake rarely exceeding 100g/day.
As for training, I just got real serious about the training aspect this summer, and thus accordingly have not been a T-mag reader long enough to sort through all of the programs. I’m currently on a four day/week body split workout, and we’ll see how that ends up in a few months.
