Thanks for the input. I think the carb cycling and re feeds is something I may possibly throw in during this transformation. I don't disagree with your carbs their. I read the same thing previously in a Skip LaCour article.Originally Posted by indysoccer16np man.
I did the primal diet for a while and one of the best things that I did while I was on it was stacking 3 re-feed days in a row centered around my workouts. (I workout M-W-F) So I would refeed up 250-350g of carbs t/w/th and then the other 4 days I stayed under 150
I was doing re-feeds on the days I was working out because of some reading I had done that suggested it would work best. But a couple people I know who lift and stick to a strict primal diet said to put them together so I did and I was building quite a bit of mass, and dropping LBS at a decent rate. Then on M/F I saved most of my carbs for post workout and got them from a good starchy source like a sweet potato. the other carbs were pre workout but I kept them limited
Def started to trim the lower Belly fat and the love handles and helped me get the V you are working for.
Then I took 7 months off of lifting and just ate and now I have to bust my ass to get it back haha.
*Should note that I went against what some people say, and no matter what day it was I DIDN'T eat my carbs until after 4-7 at night and ate all of them in a 2 hours window. After talking to some people that I trust getting advice from I made the switch to that method. (I workout in the evening
It gave me almost a small fast because during the day when I was the most active, I was running off of mostly fat and protein during the day which I think is what really helped me to drop the weight I needed to to trim up. Then in the evning I would eat my carbs, and since my body was run ragged either from lifting or cardio so my body was eating the carbs up quickly and then while I was sleeping it was still repairing everything with the carbs and protein.
Not evenone will agree with me, a lot might not but it worked great for me and about 5 other people that tried it and you can't argue with results
