Hi all! I’m thinking of starting a shortish session of T-dawg diet to shed the final few pounds between the sun and my 6-pack. I have never been on near-keto diet so it is interesting to see how I will respond. Now, I have a question about carb timing that isn’t answered in T-mag/forums: I know that it is ok to eat around 100 grams of good carbs even on non-workout days as per new T-dawg recommedations. Is there any harm in eating most of them at dinner (5-6 pm)? This would make it possible to keep eating mostly the same food as my family, if I just avoid large amounts of rice, potato, and bread etc. So basically, I would get my daily carbs from carby veggies that are cooked with meat (we eat a lot of wok-type foods or pasta) and from a small amount of rice/pasta that goes with it (say, max. 40-50 grams uncooked = 30-35 grams CHO, plus 20-30 grams from assorted veggies/spicy sauces+side salad). This would probably make a quite small portion, which I can then supplement with hi-fat foods like cheese or nuts later in the evening. During work days, I would eat mostly fat/protein snacks as the original article suggested. Is this ok, or should I spread my carb intake more?
Another question: I usually total my food intake after dinner, to see that I am not grossly under target level, and eat my evening snacks accordingly. I played around with macro amounts of T-dawg, and saw that it is very easy to eat too much protein and too little fat during daytime. So this might mean that my evening snack would only be 1-2 tbs of flax + fiber and perhaps some very small protein/fat food to wash off the taste of flax. (Nuts, sausage...) Do you see any problems with this? I rather eat "real food" at work than just gulp flax oil and just correct macro rations during evening.
