Just read your article on nutrition for natural lifters, really enjoyed it…
Just a quick question on my layout while gaining muscle/weight
I need 3,000 calories to gain on average 0.5 lbs a week which is my aim… How I’ve been setting this out is as follows:
My weight: 185 lbs
I bumped protein up a bit higher because I find eating more than 300g carbs for me is my limit.
- Would I be best to drop the protein down to around 250g and increase fat to around 88-90g. Does insulin sensitivity with carbs have the same effect with fat?
So my layout has been:
Carbs 25g (maltodextrin)
Fat 15g MCT
Post Workout / Meal 2:
- How should I rearrange this, especially to maximise carbs especially around my workout? Should I remove the carbs from meal 1?
Thanks for the help with this,
