There's a lady who does carb backloading.
I'm a little worried about that one. Does that mean cheating everyday? I'm female, does that change how I should apply the back loading diet? Should it really be carbs or could I just eat more protein?
For women, rather than, like how a guy would (for example) eat a pizza post wo for the HGI carbs, she'd have a slice or 2. Girls just can't put down tons of stuff like guys can, even if they work hard.
Let's say I follow a 4 day split, with days off. My split would be:
Mon: Back-more HGI carbs than usual.
Tues: Shoulders/Tris: maybe 1 bowl of cereal.
Wed: Off, no carbs (basically a keto diet)
Thurs: Chest/Bis, maybe 2 bowls.
Friday Off: No carbs
Sat: Legs, back workout amount of carbs
Sun: off, no carbs.
Diet is massive in what happens to your body. If you don't have it dialed in, then all the running and weight lifting in the world won't really help.
Carbs does not mean cheating. Legumes are carbs, but for optimal recovery a high glycemic index carb inter/post workout should be used.
Yes. If you're doing the strength training, no carbs intra, but then you slam em. The thing about this diet is that it has definite windows of opportunity: It follows your body's cycle so that it pumps you up in strength and (hopefully) leans you out. But you have to work out at specific points. I think if you work out from 12 pm till 2 or so, you're out of luck because that's when your insulin reaction is going to be highest and you'll have rebound (fat gain.)
