carb and fat timing
im currently cutting but have read a lot about how eating fats with higher carb meals can lead to more fat storage. how do you guys spread out your macro in your meals. Ive been doing my carbs in morning pre post and post post workout, and the other meals protein and fat combinations. I also plan to do this on my clean bulk jsut with higher amounts. Do you guys like the sound of this do any of you eat fats with higher carb meals? etc basically how do you set up your meals from a maco nutrient perspective

if you're eating 6 meals, your first 3 meals should be high carb, high pro and your last 3 meals should be high fat, high pro.

I have a problem with that. Fat slows down the abosbtion of carbs therefore they would help to inhibit a high insulin response. thoughts???

yeah, i mean its one thing to take 50g dextrose and 2 tbsp of butter at the same time, and quite another to have 1/2 cup quinoa or brown rice with 4 egg yolks. So although in theory what they say is true in some specific instances, if you look at both glycemic load and glycemic index, you generally don't get much insulin response in a mixed meal.

true to the posts above. I also read somewhere on AM that cinnamon, lemon, or fat will lower the GI of the carb intake/load. So it's good to drink some lemon water with the food you eat
