How many and what types of carbs do you recommend for this day? I prefer this option because, snce doing the Rapid Fat Loss Diet, I've developed a very low tolerance to cheat meals. Since the diet, EVERY time I've had a cheat meal, I've had a minor food intolerance afterwards.
My idea of a carb-up day is to consume 5 to 6 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight from low-fat sources and to keep the rest of dietary items low in fat too and keep protein moderate.
Since it's hard to consume that many carbs from "clean" sources, I've carbed up in the past with items like pretzels, bagels, pancakes, waffles, maple syrup, and so on, along with some cleab sources like oatmeal, whole-grain bread, fruits, etc.
What do you suggest? I'd like to use this scheme with clients in the future too.
Anyone else have any ideas?
