    Carbs??


    I'm currently trying to drop body fat and I'm trying to find out how many grams of carbs I should be having per day. Also the best times to consume carbs. I've heard so many different opinions from many people in the gym but everyone seems to have a different view. I'm not a very experienced person when it comes to dieting so any advice would be great. Thanks for taking time to read this

    Hi there!
    I use myfitnesspal with my clients to help with their calories to lose weight. You can also go to exrx.net. I also eat the majority of my carbs at breakfast and before and after my workouts. Hope this helps some.

    Back loading works great! But it depends on you diet and training leading up to the meals imo

    Agreed! Myfitnesspal is awesome! Such an easy way to log and track nutrition status! Can be useful cutting up or bulking! Most of my carbs immediately post workout!

    No problem! I love how it has a bar code scanner for foods as well as calories for eating out.

    Try cutting carbs off past noon. Except for post/preworkout have a fruit or some sort of simple carb.

    Stay away from all processes foods and you'll get shredded within weeks

    I have one high carb day a week. I eat them all day that day. It restores some sanity. During the other days, I eat my last meal of carbs 1 hour after training. I happen to train in the am, so I have them done by 1.

    Are you still eating high protien on high carb days?

    Sounds like a few more weeks and you'll be seeing great results.

    If your burning more then your taking in times have little impact.Alot will disagree but thats how it works.

    You can consume most carbs in morning to use for the day or the oppisite take them in at night and not the following morning.If your macros/cals are hit in a defeciet for that day your lose fat/weight.

    As for amount find your calorie need(usally 10-14per lb of b/w)then take your weight by 1.5for protein,1-1.2 for carbs and rest from fat.

    I disagree. After a certain time carbs turn to fat, you can eat a ****load of carbs and do cardio the next day. Instead of burning 4 calories pre gram of carb, you need to burn 9 cals per grams of fat which the carbs turned into.

    I myself keep protein and fat high throughout the day, and ONLY have carbs around my workouts. Especially when I am cutting up. I might drop a carb meal here or there to keep my body humming along. But I love the whole Carb backloading process!

    If you think you can do it, try having your carbs pre and post workout and see how your body does with that

    I like my carb cycling. I almost never go below 100 even for contest prep. But we are all different its going to be alot of trial and error until you figure out what works for you. I cheat and use a coach year round LOL

    After a certain amount/time anything turns to fat.

    Everybody needs to keep in mind that this person might not be a bodybuilder nor even wanting to be one.Im thinking its a regular guy trying to lose fat,with that in mind im trying to keep it as simple as possable.

    I've done low/high carbs(none)fasting,ect.. and i make sure i do everything right and the best thing "i"found is to listen to your body and it'll tell you what it needs(not the cravings)if your getting cravings then your on the right track for fat loss.

    And I agree that you should listen to your body to an extent. If you go on a carb binge, your body will crave for more carbs as little as an hour later to have energy storage (aka fat). Listen to your body but you need will power to determine what to eat not just to eat.
