Nutrition on NON-Training Days

First off i'd like to say how much i have missed you guys at this forum. I've been away for roughly a year (around the time John Meadows appeared on the board), purely down to being extremely busy.

Now that i'm back and have absorbed a ton of information from numerous posts that i have missed, i thought i'd get a new thread started on a topic that i don't see mentioned very often.

How do you vary your nutrition on non training days?

When asked to post their diet, people only ever seem to post what they eat on training days. Now i know you're not all machines and have to take the odd day or 2 off to recover.

Do you not change a thing because you believe you need the same amount of food to aid recovery?
Do you lower carbs because you need less fuel on non-training days?
Do you decrease carbs but increase protein and healthy fats to prevent muscle loss and increase insulin sensitivity?
If you eat low carb in general, do you reduce fat on non-training days?

I'm sure the likes of Shelby, John Meadows, Phil, Brad, JC, Dante, MG, Magnum etc can all provide great input on this topic.

Get discussing guys!!

P.S. If there is already a thread that covers this topic that i have missed then i apologise in advance.

Pete

On the day after a training day I'll eat about the same, except after leg day, I'll try to eat more LOL. But if I go a day or two past a training day I'll lighten up a lil bit.

Lighten up/reduce calories in what way? Keeping your current ratios the same and just eating smaller portions? Lowering 1 particular macro?

Come on guys...give more details. Back up why you do what you do with a reason. For example, you eat 1 less balanced meal on non-training days because you're no where near as hungry due to not working your ass off in the gym etc etc...

I figured I was being clear when I said all I did was reduce calories. I'm using less energy, so I will take in less energy. I see no reason to change macros in any real way. Maybe if you normally have carbs pre-workout or something, obviously you'd cut that out.

I eat the same way since I have the same hunger no matter if I lift for 45 minutes that day or not. I still need to repair the muscles from the day before so I eat so I can train hard the next day.

I drop some of the carbs, replace some of lost calories with some extra protein/fat and end up 100-200 kcals less than training days. Rough estimation..\

I pack fat much faster if i keep it same as training days
