    Not for me. I like to get in ample amounts of EFA's. When I cut, I only take in carbs in the AM (Oats), PWO (Dex), and PPWO (Oats/Rice)... the rest of my meals of comprised of lean protein / essential fats.... everyone is different though.

    That's pretty much identical to my cutting meal plan. Although I sometimes preferr some fresh pineapple in the AM before my morning workouts. It worked pretty good for me.

    I think it depends on your body type.

    I did a 40/30/30 type last year in the summer, it worked alright.\

    BUT this year i did carb cycling after I read TwinPeak's method, and the pounds just freakin shredded off of me like I couldnt believe. Then again, my friend at the gym can do wonders with his 40/30/30 diet.

    Maybe you should try both for a while. Couldn't hurt, and you'd be a better man for it

    I am doing a really low carb diet right now(keto), and I am repsonding well to it. Besides being a little tired from the low carbs, I am seeing really good results. But usually I do a 50/20/30 for when I cut because I am highly carb sensitive.

    Sugar alcoholc are naturally occuring compounds that are usually used to replace sugar because they are sweet but have a minimal impact on blood sugar and are usually only partially digesting thus resulting in a lower caloric content. Too much will give you the ****s.

    On a side note a sugar alcohol called xylitol is very good for your teeth.

    Not even close. Splenda is synthetic. Sure, they make you think it's all natural, and sure, Splenda starts off as sugar, but in the end Splenda is totally man-made. Sugar alcohols are naturally occuring. Xylitol for example is produced endogenously in small amounts and can be manufactured through the fermentation of a particular type of tree. I forget exactly which now, I wrote an article on it some time ago. Here: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/xylitol.htm And no, I did not plagiarize xylitol.org (as one forum member would like to believe), that website didn't even exist when I wrote the article.

    Splenda is a sugar substitute, and sugar alcohol is an entirely different macros. It is not lower calorie at all, actully it's a tiny bit higher. It does however have a lower GI effect on blood sugar (less insulin response).

    Glycerin is the most used these days.

    Are you sure about that? I would think that since it is only partially digested and some is past unused then in the end the calorie content would be lower.

    Tha actuall calorie conten is 4.9 per gram (if memory serves) however what your body does with it is a diiferent situation.

    Like fiber, fiber yet a carbohydrate that yields 4 calaories per gram, is treated different as your body has to burn caloried just to proccess it.

    Get it? Or am not making ane sense?

    Calorie content does vary with each type though. I cant remember which was which but the range was something like 2.9-4.7 cal/g. Sorbitol, maltitol, and the xylitol are common sugar alcohols.

    While they may have less impact on blood glucose than comparable non-zero calorie sweeteners they are non necessarily good choices. As mentioned they can act as laxatives (a lot for some ppl).

    Anyone know how these are metabolised in the body? Fructose is usually lower GI than a lot of starchy foods yet it is not the most desirable carb source. Additionally, their alcohol properties may lead to other drawbacks.

    I know a guy that couldn't start his car that had a breathaliser (sp) on it after eating a protein bar. HAHA, that was funny I saw him for 30 mins outside my store just blowing in that damn thing.

    Yeah, this was what I was getting at. Sort of like Olestra. It had a caloric value but since it pretty much escaped digestion, it had no caloric value inside the body.
