both low fats (when I say low, I mean really low ie <50g fats for most general purposes) and low carbs (here I mean anything <100g), that is horrible to do for any amount of duration, at any time..should ONLY be utilized as a last resort, if one needs drastic measures and has fallen behind schedule for some reason..it is NOT a consistent plan of attack, one wishes to use thruout an entire prep process
honestly, the diet I put together for you to begin with was fine for your needs; you started tweaking things on your own, and forgetting things (like the design of that carb meal etc) that are essential to function of that SPECIFIC plan
when you have a guideline from someone else, unless you have an extremely thorough understanding of the processes involved and feel you can improve upon it, it is important to not deviate from the plan as it is structured
you make this entirely too complex here man....
if you are having fats ~50g day and they are being reduced from there, then you will really want to keep carbs >100g and more like 115in a low-point of a set rotation ie 175/150/115 then carb meal built-in to bump day that will put you ~250-300g for that particular day
as far as meal timing goes, again I do not know what you refer to here, there is no "2hr window" that I propose at all, and the 2x weekly carb boosters are metabolism reset meals that also boost thyroid function and keep fat-loss humming right along
I don't wish to sound rude doug, but honestly I am losing the ability to have luxury of time to spend dissecting things here with you - esp things I have touched on in one form or another previously already..i simply cannot do it, with my own prep/customer clients are procure my services and so I have an obligation to tend to them
please understand my position..also - again the 2hr thing, I am clueless to what you refer to
if you are talking about avoiding IF, then certainly you know how I feel on that one..
if you are talking about spacing meals out, it is simply because if you are splitting meals 5-6x daily then ~3hrs or so is how they will logically be spaced apart
don't make this too difficult!
