A little back ground first...Been lifting for 22 years, gained 100 plus lbs (260lbs now) and have never done a cut. I would like to cut about 30 lbs of fat but keep my 22 years of hard earned muscle. I've been consulting with a co worker who did some bodybuilding competitions 15 to 20 years ago and hes telling me that he would do the Adkins diet for 8 weeks when he was cutting for a show, so he is recomending that i go down to about 20 to 30 grams of carbs a day. My goal is not preparing for a contest but to finally show off the hard earned work...should I try to go down to 20 grams of carbs a day and keep the protien and heathy fats high or is this too low for what I want to do?
I know this worked for him ( I've seen his trophys ).
