Remember, even though your body IS in that PWO window where carbs are going to be shuttled towards your muscles instead of stored as bodyfat, once you have taken enough to successfully replenish your muscles, the rest still DOES have a tendency to be stored as bodyfat. The anabolic window isn't like a license to go all out by any means. Like I said, this is just my opinion and what works for me though.

thank you, it wont let me rep you again. these guys always wonder why they gotta bulk and cut, bulk and cut, where is that fat coming from?? all the big dudes at the gym slam thousands of grams of carbs!!

The whole you can only process so much carbs in one meal and the rest goes to fat is broscience. When I diet for fat loss I skip breakfast, eat a big lunch usually tuna sandwitches and a big bowl of cereal, pre workout shake, and have a big dinner. So since all my carbs come in two meals I must affect my fat loss... Oh wait it doesn't.
Besides carbs don't just restore glycogen, they have lots of process one major one pwo is to help stop muscle tissue breakdown. I have seen countless ridiculous transformations from Martin on leansgains website where people do amazing recomps in timeframes where we would all almost wanna doubt is possible, and his guys eat 50% total calories in there pwo meal. Why aren't they getting fat then?

actually the macro and calorie daily intakes WERE exactly the same. All I did was manipulate it so that more carb macros and calories came PWO, and less spread out throughout all the other meals.
I think if you spread out your calories a bit more evenly throughout your day, you wouldn't need to gorge yourself PWO.

not trying to flame but i gave the facts to back up what i said. you can look up how complex carbs affect blood sugar and insulin, etc. you sit there and talk $hit on the paleo diet while you know nothing about it. it has worked very effectively for tons of people including people on this board but you still call it "broscience". internet is a place where we share information, studies, self experiments. i trust the homework that people here did a whole lot more than some "fitness guru" website that you keep advertising. good day.

i dont see whats there to not believe, her pic obviously shows an under 10% bf. 4k calories just means she has a faster metabolic rate than others.

I eat 7 meals a day. Breakfast, Mid-morn, Lunch, Pre-Workout, Post-Workout, Dinner, Bedtime. Very strict diet. Always feel good and tons of energy.

At the same time that doesn't mean I eat junk everyday, but I'm also not one of the guys that monitors every single little carb or gram in every meal lol

I started my alpha t2 and eating anything I see in sight hell and when I mean anything I don't mean junk food every hour on the hour, but i do like some chips or slim jim from time to time. we will see if alpha lives up to it's name, haven't felt the thermogenic yet and I'm at 3 caps a day, but that's a different thread.

Maybe it plays some small factor in there, hell it SHOULD, otherwise all it is a placebo pill. But I think the fact that she takes a fat burner has very little to do with why she can eat 4k calories a day and stay lean. A LOT of other factors come into play, genetics, training, nutrition, etc.. The fat burner is really quite a minute detail in the reason why she can do it if you ask me.
Ask her how many she can eat and stay lean if she doesn't take a fat burner and I bet you get the same answer...

Do supplements help in achieving your goals? Yes, they can, but they're the LEAST important part.
Can I get the same results without supplements? Yes, I can (and have done, in several logs when using only the basics staples or my staples, and in some cases, not even that, like just recently) - as I said, my TRAINING is the determining factor in MY results, and re fat loss, my BEST fat loss/difference in body composition occurred during a week where I was NOT even using the basic staples (only Vitaberry and BC+EAA)!
If you don't believe, that's your prerogative, gentleman, but just because YOU think it is impossible doesn't make it impossible, and you'd do well to stop making asses of yourselves by making ridiculous statements and assumptions about someone you clearly know nothing about (and that is my last comment here, because this is becoming a joke now)!

Rosie isn't your typical female who just tries to stay looking attractive for the guys...she does it for her and stays lean because she prefers to be lean...she trains to be photo shoot ready and competition ready. In other words...when you say unless you do hours of cardio...well Rosie doesn't do a sh*tload of cardio. Maybe you think it is, but to her it's nothing.
End of discussion here...

I really do not see the sense in arguing over wether or not you believe Rosie does this or Rosie does that... At least she posts pics! You really can't call BS on her she has numerous logs and pics to support her claims not to mention at least dozen articles.
Can we move on now and discuss the original topic please!?

Rosie, I know you said you train much harder than most people. And I'm just curious how many carbs you take in PRE workout? Obviously there is a fine balance when perpetually recomping where you need enough to fuel a workout, but also are able to tap in to fat for energy at some point so you can stay lean/lean out a bit.
PS. Thanks for the reps

I eat clean about %90 of the time. I buy nothing but healthy food and dont count calories or anything and never really go hungry. I AM concious of what I eat though. I stay in good shape year round and dont let eatting get the best of me. I guess im used to eatting healthy foods all the time. Im not a bodybuilder but one who just likes to be in good shape and dont plan on competeing. If I have the urge to eat pizza I will, but I WILL remember it and I WILL make up for it. You can make alot of change in yourself by just being aware of what your putting in your body, and it doesnt take much knowledge to recogize when your makeing the wrong decisions. Just eat sensible and you will be happy imo.
