i cut 2 inches off my fat gut in 3 weeks when i went high carb. made my cardio easier and i could go harder and longer.
then again, its all about cals in v cals out.
no matter what.
else a pizza diet, a subway diet, a twinkie diet...wouldnt have worked. yet, they did. and do.
i seem to get fat on the "recommended" fat levels for average people and i'm running gear, gh, everything else.
i much prefer higher carbs and keeping my fats in the 40-50g range.
the only thing i liked better about higher fat and lower carb was that at the end of the day i still looked lean like i do in the morning versus looking more bloated at the end of the day on a higher carb diet. but the higher fat in the end put more onto my love handles and i'm not about that life.
agreed. but this is not a long term diet. Most use at least supplemental omega 3s during this time. i would generally get 30g of fat a day from what animal fat was had with my diet, plus am additional 7g of Omega 3s.
Slamming humulin IM twice a day preworkout doesn't allow a lot of time for lots of fat, and would be counterproductive.
That being said, I much prefer moderate protein, higher fat, low car diet for longevity in this sport at least. I was a hard gainer, and I enjoyed experimenting with different things. I also tried a version of IM fasting. Wake up, shoot GH, do an hour of fasted cardio, and continue fasting until 2pm. I would eat from 2 to 8pm, with my workout at 4pm, and continue than continue fasting. Got lean fast, and surprisingly maintained 90 percent muscle.
Dont see how this would work for anyone. Carbs are an energy source and get stored. High carb will make you fat unless your running DNP. If you are running DNP the why not do low carb and maximize your cut. Think wishful thinking.
