This sounds kind of dumb, but it's something I'm curious about Why do people, when they bulk, consume so much more carbs? I thought carbs were used for energy. So even if you're trying to eat over maintenance cals, what's the point of all the extra carbs if they aren't being used for energy? Wouldn't they
just be stored as fat? Wouldn't the extra calories be better consumed via protein and fats?
I'm sure I'm missing something...do carbs do something else besides provide energy?
