The principle mainly applies to whole foods. But if you can find Big Macs growing on trees in your area, then by all means...Originally Posted by glenihan

I hear Ronnie Mcdonald grows Big Macs in the Amazon... and Chicken McNuggets in Chernobyl.
I like that Ayurvedic way of thinking.

Hey Alan,Originally Posted by alan aragon
Could you expound on this? More precise definition of "trained state" and approximate (or maximum) amount of carbs. Any formal references to this that you could point to?

I've read that de novo lipogenesis as a result of carbs would take massive overfeeds for days on end, so the effect of a single meal while your cells are like blast furnaces (during & immediately posttraining) would be less than negligible. Trained state refers to the increased sensitivity to insulin, receptivity by lean tissue to fuels, increased thermogenesis, increased beta adrenergic activity, etc, etc. Maximum amount of carbs before lipogenesis occurs would be tough to pin down, because by the end of the day, it wouldn't matter anyway if your net fat balance isn't positive. Nother words, let's say you ate a box of entemann's cinnamon rolls postworkout, but by the end of the day or week, it didn't contribute to a caloric surplus of unused kcals, then you're fine. That's the whole concept behind refeeds, it's tough for them to be acutely lipogenic, and even tougher for them to be chronically lipogenic if thermo balance & training were in check.Originally Posted by t-bone2

Thanks, that's great news. Especially since those Entemann's cinnamon buns come twelve to a pack. Means I can scarf one down between each interval during at HIIT session!

Glen, how would you structure your diet differently if say you worked out at 6pm or so? If I am not mistaken, didn't you used to work out later in the evening? Thanks for your time, good to see your workouts are going well.
