This never happens to me but I haven’t gone to the bathroom since Tuesday. Probably just not a lot of waste at this point in the game.
I’ve been pretty drained I’m the evenings so I’m going to try a different approach to my carbs. I’ve been having my normal breakfast and then have 1 cup of brown rice to allocate between meals 2-6. I’ve been doing 2 oz in meal 2 which is pre workout, 4 oz in meal 3 which is post workout, 2 oz in meal 4, and none in meal 5 or 6. I do ok until around 5 and then it’s like I’ve got the shaky legs like when your blood sugar crashes for the rest of the day. Might simply be part of the process but I sure hope not.
Today I’m going to try 4oz servings in meal 3 and 4 and take them out of meal 2 and 5. Same nutrients just different spacing. My thought is that maybe I’m depleting myself too much in my workout and the 2 oz post workout just doesn’t do the trick to give me enough fuel for the rest of the work day. I typically finish workout around 1-2 or so and then work from then till 730-8. With the new spread I’ll have 1/2 cup pre workout and 1/2 cup post. We’ll see how I feel this evening.
If I feel better I’ll keep this setup through Sunday. Monday through Wednesday next week I’ll cut out another 4 oz of rice. Already know that’s gonna be brutal. Then peak week will start on Thursday. I will slowly decrease protein while increasing carbs. I’d have to look at my plan but I believe I’ll peak with my carb load on like Tuesday or Wednesday of peak week. That day will be like 330 grams of carbs. Holy Crap that will be awesome. I’ll then begin to wind them down a little as to not gain any fat. We’re almost there!
