    Haha It seems like a lot of people are in the same boat. I'd have a lot of trouble hitting my calorie target without a bunch of carbs.

    that's a lot of carbs
    it's all relative tho - relative as to how our body absorbs them (some of course do better than others), and mostly relative to what kind of carbs one is consuming (400-600g carbs coming from sugar gonna leave you fat, period)..micronutrients are everything, when it comes to bodycomp and eliminating unwanted adipose tissue, while retaining most muscle possible

    a structured contest prep ~10-12 weeks out, if you are in decent shape, leaves one with a very nice guideline/structure to learn one's body..you get to incorporate the carb rotation (as beans mentioned), clean carbs majority of week, with the occasional cheat meal timing thrown in once weekly..this is great protocol to base "regular life" off of, if you are concerned with looking good

    there are always exceptions to the rule (again) - the freak metabolism who can eat very loosely and still look awesome..the goofball who thinks he's gonna show up at a show and dominate - despite being 15% bf at 10 weeks out (so above wouldn't apply to this individual, as for incorporating a 10-week-out protocol into a regular daily plan, he would have to pull out all stops if he wants to make even a decent showing)..

    generalities (and common sense), again

  4. Breezy must absorb carbs very well cuz dude is straight jacked lol

    sure, some can
    other factors play a part too - jay cutler can eat 800-1000g+ carbs daily and stay under 10%..
    dude's a freak, but a lil other factoring in there as well

    My macros are pretty consistent. I usually just lower my calorie total on non training days and the carbs follow. Lately I've been trying to have most of the drop in calories coming from carbs, but its only been a couple weeks with this approach.

    I'm a freak lol. I actually have some absorption problems, which is why my calorie intake is as high as it is. I take prescription pancreatic enzymes with all my food.

    Haha I think its the opposite, but it's working out either way.

    Very very solid info as usual snags!!! Thanks for breaking it down. I'm learning a lot about my body during this prep.

    This is the best part, the PROCESS we go through, trial and error is how we learn. It's fun to read and watch others progress and see what strategies work and don't work. You sir are a machine :-)

    As Matty has said b4, priceless.

    Dan give whoever you choose at least 6 weeks to figure things out take in as much info as you can from him/her. In the off season it's nice because I use my coach when I get stuck or plateau then take what he teaches me and do it myself for a month or two then go back for more help, when money isn't as much of an issue ill use one year round fo sho

    Def. I figured I'd start out with 6 weeks and see how it goes. It's gonna be a few weeks before I do anything. The wife said I exceeded my fundage for this month lol

    I feel but you need to remember what is planned out for you will NOT work for most others bro. Keep that in mind

    is the difference between a cookie-cutter guidance, and a tailor-made individual plan
    true individual attention is more involved/costly than what a novice might suspect
    nice clarification

  23. I'll be doing the more in depth plan when I finally pull the trigger. Might as well do it right

    Taylor made takes into consideration current BF%, Body Type, Current Diet, Previous Diet Experience, Daily Output, weekly or bi weekly progress, and a lot more. It is usually the much better option as it provides guidance based on the individual needs as compared to a plan that is less specific and may not work for the individual.

    I'd be interested in seeing how well it works for ya. Granted what works for you probably wouldnt have the same result for me, especially if youre on. Definitely not trying to get something for nothing - just interested in the whole process. All this stuff is fascinating
