Default Carb Backloading - 02-11-2013, 11:36 AM

I'm going to make a seperate thread with links to Dangerously Hardcore so you guys can read some of the stuff going on about Carb-nite Solution and Carb Backloading.

A separate thread will be opened and stuck to the top of the page for your convenience.

Simply put in Cliff note form this is what Carb Backloading is good for:

It is good for someone 15% bodyfat and under to loose unwanted bodyfat and still gain as much muscle as possible while preserving muscle.

It is good for gaining new muscle and strength without gaining fat.

Cliff Notes are as follows.

Low carb throughout the day under 30 grams.

Train in the evening. As soon as training is over start slamming carb in. The higher the GI the better. The idea is to spike insulin levels and promote growth and recoup worked muscles.

On non training days try to go as low carb as possible for the entire day to stay in a fat burning mode. then the night before the next training day carb backload for the next days training.

When you guys get a spare moment, have a flick through this thread: http://community.myprotein.com/diet-...u-fat-ill.html

(It was written by a good friend of mine)

It's long, but well worth a read. If your a carboholic, you won't be by the end of the thread.


*By the way I'm not trying to start a forum war.

I read a lot into that thread. Most of the response are typical to the everyday mantra that they have told for years. But the one significant thing that they never repose to is the loss of Muscle Tissue while doing these carb cycling diets and or tons of cardio to burn fat.

Typically, those on low carb diets forget to replace those calories from else where. Some in the bodybuilding community fear fat, and will just focus on protein during low carb, and as such consume no where near enough calories. That's where the loss of muscle tissue comes in.

This is just my opinion though. From my experience on low carb, I've noticed my training improves, as does my recovery.

I at times consume a respectable amount of carbs in a post workout meal, otherwise I start getting carb flu. But It's usually after a number of days carb depleted.


Sorry for the ramble, This post should probably be in my rant thread..... LOL I have a habit of doing this...
