Anabolic Diet Strategies
I wanted to get opinions from some fellow AD'ers.
Do you vary your calories on weekdays like DiPasquale suggests?
Monday: 2000 cals
Tuesday: 3000 cals
Wednesday: 4000 cals
Thursday: 3000 cals
Friday: 2000 cals
Also, on your carb load 24-48 hours, is less better, or more?
Do you raise your cals or lower them during the carb refeeds?

I have been on the Metabolic Diet for years. I don't very my calories that much. I just try to stay in a certain range during the low carb portion. During the load, it is definitely better to raise calories. The carb load is recommended 12-48 hours, it depends on what your goal is....You just have to play with the diet a little bit find out how you react. You can pretty much get it down to a Science. Especially if you have the book, you can look things up if you want more details.

Well I am pretty new to the AD as well, but I dont really vary my cals much. Even on the weekends, I just eat the same amount of cals, but switch the ratios like you are supposed to. To be honest, I find it really difficult to even eat the maintenance cals. High fat just kills my appetite. As well, good fat cals are just hard to come by. So unless I feel like drinking cream, or eating plain butter, I find it hard enough to just reach my maintenance cals. To get back to the point, I just mainly try to eat as much as I can while only eating good quality, healthy, fats.

I usually keep my weekday calorie's the same and do a 24 hour carb load. I will usually do clean carbs and then have one meal be a cheat meal. This diet has worked good as during the holidays I was able to tweak things and get all my carb load days to be on the holidays. Guilt free!
After your initial 12 days, what are you maintenacne carbs during the week? Mine are 50-60g carbs maintenacne.

I never read the book or anything. i just go off word on the street. I eat just around 3,000 since the initial 10 day break in. I've slowly lost 3 lbs since then. I'm prolly a 60/40 meso/endo so I do 24-36 carb loads. Weights stil the same on monday so I think I'm doing ok.

Personally i keep the carb loading period to 12-24 hours. (im an endomorph though) Watch your insulin sensitivity, use general dieting rules (no processed foods) containing any corn fructose, sweetening agents etc etc
and yes vary the meals weekly, i found myself eating alot of sausage and eggs (i ****ing love eggs)
