I've been cutting, and I'm slowly transitioning in to less and less calories below maintenance. Right now I'm around 700-800 per day, and I'm keep the fats and protein high, and carbs under 30, obviously.
My question is on carb ups, does the carb type matter because it's all going to glycogen?
I was thinking about using lower GI carbs, with more fiber, like oatmeal, healthier cereals, fruits sparringly because of the fructose issue, and sweet potatoes (seriously, who the hell eats these on a carb up?)
I was also thinking about priming each meal with anabolic pump, 1-2 pills 15 minutes before hand.
Also, should the refeeds be shorter, or less intense? Right now I shoot for 4 semi large carb meals in the span of 12-16 hours. This usually nets 800 carbs, and I think my glycogen reserves can hold 16 X kg in LBM, which would be around 90, so a totally glycogen depleted me could store 1440 carbs in 24 hours, and 800 in 12 hours, or which plus maintenance cals means I could eat 6500 calories a day and gain ZERO fat. More realistically I still have some glycogen, so I could round it down to 700, and I could still eat around 6000 calories, assuming 2800 were carbs, and gain zero fat, plus get the metabolic boost.
On the flip side, if the refeeds where more intensive, I'd get a larger metabolic boost which would set me up nicely for the low cal low carb days.
What do you think?
