    Diet Question please help me!!!!


    I have a quick question...I am 2 weeks out from a bodybuilding show i weigh 155 down from 176 about 12 weeks of diet. Anyways someone told me when I was about a month out to cut carbs outta my diet completly only eat carbs on carb up days which for me is once a week. Is this the right thing or should I eat a very small portion of carbs every meal?

    DIET:
    I eat 5 whole meals and two shakes a day. The whole meals consist of 6 oz of chicken breast and 20 almonds. The shakes are a 1.5 scoops of whey and a tablespoon of PB. I feel like im not losing any more weight and ive come to a halt!! so carbs or no carbs i guess?

    CARDIO:

    I rotate and do moderate walking which totals 1.5 hours a day or do 50 minutes of HIIT

    Breakfast is where carbs are less likely to be partitioned towards fat cells, so maybe with a glucose disposal agent like P-Slin, you can carb up every breakfast. Or jump on NPs sale and get bulk P-Slin powder and carb up breakfast and postworkout.
    Freedom means nothing here.

    Just food for thought, but breakfast is when your cortisol is the highest, which inhibits insulin I believe. Most people have larger carb meals around breakfast, but I thought I would throw that out there because unless I'm training after breakfast I don't have carbs for breakfast.

    Interesting... I thought insulin response in the morning blunts cortisol.

    This nutrition theorist $hit is confusing...

    Well you're right that carbs will cause an insulin spike which blunts cortisol, but because of the high cortisol your insulin resistance is higher (Sorry I didn't mean inhibits insulin above), so it's a good time to use a nutrient partitioner (PSlin, AP, YG, Na-R-ALA, Your call)

    so do u think it is wise to cut out carbs all the way and just have them on carb load up days or should i still have 2 servings of carbs per day

    If you're 2 weeks out, I might totally cut carbs for the first week and see if that kicks out a little more weight. You've obviously hit a plateau, so dropping carbs altogether my shock your body a bit in the right direction. But, if after the first week you see no change, then it may not be the carbs that are causing a stall in your weight loss. Thats my $0.02

    Good man Steve. I like a comprimise.
