I dunno man, he is 15 I doubt he knows much about his body at this point.
And neither do most 40 year olds. What better time to start learning than while in the prime of youth.[/quote]
what I mean is he doesn’t know that he doesn’t handle carbs well. Why go low/no carb if he hasn’t deemed it necessary yet?
He is a young 15 year old who is developing more rapidly now than he will for the rest of his life, it makes more sense that he should be more worried about having a well rounded diet that is micro nutrient dense then worrying about cutting out a macronutrient that if from the right sources have no negative effects on the body and plenty of positive ones.
it’s not like after a few years of training and learning how to build a solid diet and maybe even track macros and calories, he can’t try to experiment with other things. I mean really? why would telling him to make such a dramatic change now really impact his future that much? I didn’t even start lifting until almost 19? and I didn’t start eating healthy until 11 months ago.[/quote]
Exactly all of this. It’s not like anyone is saying “Just GOMAD and eat pizza and burgers brah,” here. I agree with the above posters that this seems out of line with your normal legitimate viewpoints LIFTICVS. Having a good balance of P/F dominated days along with high(er) P/C days with sweet potatoes, brown rice, Ezekiel bread or fruit will likely only benefit a freaking 15-year old.
Once again, how could be possibly know what works for him if he doesn’t give it all a shot - especially when he’s young?
FTR, eBomb’s LOW days are like 150-200g carbs, which aside from Skipload days are my ‘highest’ days. So yeah, tinkering and toying should happen especially early on when noob gains will be had.
