    so if i had something on Sat you'd say carb on wed and thursday low carb friday and carb up Sat?

  4. i would go Sat. have some.
    Tuesday some but just enough maybe after training.
    Wed. the same as Tuesday.
    Friday a little in the morn maybe 1/2 of wed. amount
    sat preshow.

    I can recomend amounts or timing since i dont really know you or body type. Just know once you feel flat and depleted and beat, 50g will go a LONG way. If its your fisrt show/heavy cut i would highly favor the low side. Can always eat a bit more but its way harder to rid of bloat.

    thanks for your advice. How long before do you cut carbs and what do you go down to personally.. Right now I'm cycling between 50-150gms a day depending if it's HIIT or a Major body part day.
