Should I be cutting carbs way back?
Here’s the Info:
Last year I weighed 251 pounds. I cut carbs down to 20g or less per day and eat healthy. Lost about 40 pounds and dropped down to 208. At 208, I was still 24% bodyfat and so I need to drop more fat.
About a month ago, I began eating more. More protein, more carbs, more fat. My diet is 50% protein and about 25% carbs, 25% fat. I usually get about 200g of protein each day. I generally get about 2,200 calories per day.
I Cycle. 6 weeks on, 6 weeks off. Right now, I am on for about two more weeks. I work out 5 times a week for about an hour.
My goal is hypertrophy. BIG BIG BIG muscles. But I still need to lose fat along the way.
- Continue on the 50/25/25 diet . . untouched
- Drop the carbs way low again . . maybe eliminate most carbs except post workout only.
- Increase my calories even higher?
- Continue on the 50/25/25 diet only while ON Cycle . .but cut carbs and calories way back when off cycle?
- other suggestions . . .
