I know that both David Barr and Dr.Lonie Lowery have said that they are not fans of consuming carbs before and/or during exercise if fat loss is your main goal. Dr. Berardi, on the other hand, has said that despite what many people believe, carb consumption before and/or during training, while blunting fat burning during the workout, actually increases fat burning post workout.
Now, I’ve recently started using Surge (and I LOVE it by the way). For about 6 weeks I’ve been having a 1 scoop serving ~ 15 min. before my workout. For the past couple of weeks I’ve cut this Surge out. I can really tell the difference in my energy and strength levels during workouts!
I’m on a cutting cycle, eating a hypocaloric diet and fairly low carbs–higher carbs on workout days, lower on non-training days.
Do you think this 1 scoop serving of Surge before my workouts will affect my fat loss efforts to a noticible degree? I’m eating ~2400 Kcal on non-training days, ~ 2700 Kcal on training days.
