My head is a bit frazzled with all that I've been reading lately... so much conflicting info out there about when to eat carbs and what the best timing for them is. I've been following the Carb Backloading principle for a few months now, pro/fat during the day, only having carbs post-workout (and all high-GI), but I can't say I've seen any amazing improvements by doing this. This could be down to a number of factors of course, but it's just got me wondering about it all and what other people have seen results with? I know that everyone is different though, and there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach.
Do you have low-GI carbs for breakfast/lunch (pre-workout)? I presume you'd only have low-GI if any at all during the day? I always hit the gym around 4-5pm. I've had no real issues with energy during my workouts, and have found MCT oil very useful, so it's not like I really feel I NEED carbs during the day, as it's hardly like I struggle to cope without them, but if they will help with my goals I'm all for it. I watch my macros closely, and I also supplement with creatine, beta-alanine, caffeine and BCAA's. I also plan on running a stack of Anabeta and Erase shortly, so just figuring out if worth making any tweaks to my diet. I would like to gain some lean mass, keeping fat gain to a bare minimum (naturally lol!). I'm about 12-13% BF currently. Maybe I just need to experiment, but I'm curious what others personal experiences have been.
