Great info! This article is what helped me lose that 22lbs!
Awesome info--thank you!
Awesome info here!! Just what I needed!! I printed it out for my "brain don't retain!!"
Great article. I just need to get over my fear of math while waiting for my turn on the "list".
When you help people with carb cycling, do you suggest that their total daily calories remain the same every day? Or that they eat more/less depending on their train/rest status for any given day?
Depends on the program - both 'can be' viable options.
One could eat at say 12x BW every day for a week or cycle calories over the week and still have it 'average out to' 12x BW/day.
On the low carb days, I know that what carbs you get are in the form of fibrous vegetables, but is there a limit to the amount of carbs to have on a low day? A cup of broccoli here a cup of grean beans there, etc. (in addition to any carbs if you had cottage cheese) could add up, so I was just wondering if there was some limit, like 50g for the day. Or does that not matter and you can eat the fibrous vegetables freely on those days? I ask because I can eat a lot of vegetables!
fibrous veggies arent free other than a few cups or salad green.
There isn't really any rule. Some people do super low carb days. Getting under say 20g. When I have carb cycled most recently. I never had my low carb days below 75-80.
Good to know. I was thinking about keeping it at around 40-50g,so I guess that is ok.
Great article! Thank you!
Under 20g?!?!?! I don't believe I could even function on that. lol!
I know, seriously! I can get 20g carbs in two meals with just vegetables! Then what, chicken and oil the rest of the day? Blah:crying:
I agree :nod:
Question - I have been working towards this article for the past two weeks - not sure if I am giving it too much thought???
If I am trying to loose fat and weight, I weigh 140 lbs, I have been doing 4 days of weight training:
Monday upper heavy and 20 minutes interval
Tuesday lower light
Weds 40 min ss
Thurs lighter upper
Friday 30 minutes metabolic
Sat heavy lower
If I want 12X body weight to lose 1,680 cls, and 1.1 protein per body weight - 154 grams, is my information correct by saying I can't do 2.2 grams of carbs per body weight because that would would be 280 grams - causing me to be too hight in calories if my fat is 26 grams so I have been keeping my carbs around 230 - or should I lower protein or fat?
Awesome article :wink:
Thanks for the info. I have never counted calories. This is all foreign to me. I'm trying to soak all of this in and understand it. I don't even know how to start. I'm 5'4" and 130 lbs. I guess I calculate caloric intake by... I don't know.... back to more reading....I'm so confused....
try using an online resource like fitday, my fitness pal , cronometer to count calories.
