With my new program, I am lifting three days a week with a rest day in between. I will do cardio once (or twice) a week as well.
I am about 151-152lbs. currently with about 10-11% bodyfat. I was wanting to get some opinions on starchy carbs for rest days since I haven’t taken this many rest days in between training before–while at the same time I want to use the extra recovery time to keep my bodyfat percentage down as I increase my lean mass.
That said, what would you consider to be an ideal amount (in GRAMS) of starchy carbs to consume on my REST DAYS? I usually eat lower gylcemic starchy carbs including oatmeal, whole-grain bread (no HFCS), brown rice, and sweet potatoes for starchy carbs. And technically beans are a starch that I eat too.
Thanks for your suggestions/comments.
