My question is this: do you really need carbs? I mean I hate carbs such as oats, potatoes and rice and stuff like that, and only eat Ezekial bread when I try to bulk up. I really only eat fruits and dairy which have some carbs. I was thinking, do you think my weight gain be from increased carb intake? I was a slim 36 inch waist last summer and only ate all natural foods. Then when I tried to put on serious size by using carbs I blew up. Could one not eat much carbs and still bulk up? If so I will after I finish my cut. Oh by the way I am doing well, down to 37 inch waist.
