How much cardio is to much cardio?

The implication of that meaning that high carb weight loss is mostly muscle mass? C'mon man, i've already explained that a deficit mobilises fatty acids.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20107198: high carb and high fat diets show similar weight loss
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22935440: Body-weight loss (includes Lean Mass measurements) and weight-maintenance depends on the high-protein, but not on the 'low-carb' component of the diet, while it is unrelated to the concomitant fat-content of the diet.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22850317: Unrelated, but what do you make of this @JudoJosh? These findings suggest that a dietary pattern characterised by a low amount of carbohydrate, but high amounts of protein and fat, is associated with a poorer small artery vascular reactivity in patients with increased CV risk.. Interesting.
Anyway, i'm going to leave it here.

Hey, I've been lurking on these forums for quite sometime. I'm new to this posting thing, but this particular subject and the research you posted has me interested.
Jiigzz, Would you actually recommend a high-carb over a high-fat?
My cuts in the past have pretty much consisted of a low-carb approach. (The first was from 260 to 180, nothing special though, just a consistent calorie deficit) but the potential benefits of a high-carb, low fat, seem to be advantageous and favorable from my standpoint compared to those of a high-fat one.

After reading this thread it's very obvious to me that what works for one may not for the others. There's no right or wrong, I've see bb ers get tight using both concept. Thanks for the interesting read... Peace

Just to be clear; I always agreed on the stance that low-carb, high fat diets work but the same applies for the opposite.

Honestly as long as you are getting enough protein then the amount of carbs and fats you take in arent going to manifest into a significant difference in terms of body composition changes
