This thread is for the people who happen to like their carbs. Who aren’t “carb sensitive” like every poor soul claims to be.
I wake up and have a bowl of yogurt with honey and cinnamon and whatever chopped mixed fruit I can get. I have no aversion to grains or sweetpotatoes or rice with my fish and meat. And I pile on the veggies and fruit and milk with every meal.
If I need more calories, well I eat more food. I was even fat once. Yet I can somehow train and eat a shitload of carbs and react great to them, even at night. Magic?
Other benefits I’ve experienced:
High energy, great recovery, huge amounts of fiber and vitamins, and improved health via blood work. My test, cholesterol, and general blood lipid profile were all far better on a higher carb plan than on a gaining plan high in saturated fats and low in overall carb intake. I feel better, look fuller, and am physically stronger. My skin even improved.
I don’t see any reason that I won’t eat like this for the rest of my life, because unlike eating lard all day and supplementing like mad just to get the vitamins I need to be healthy and regular, it’s easy and effective and healthy and sustainable regardless of goals. Just that simple.
I feel like there is WAY too much carb hate here, even among bulkers, and that some newbs might get lead in the wrong direction and just automatically assume they should be eating low carb. When the fact is that carbs can be great, that they pull water into your muscles, and improve sarcoplasmic hypertrophy- one of the things making the muscles of the Olympia freaks so huge.
