After learning a lot from low carb methodology and articles from Dan john's website, I thought of an idea to lose some fat:

Crossfit workout days are meat and oil only days(and some fiber, like lettuce)

The last three meals of the rest day are carb up meals. Im now trying to figure out how many carbs I need total in those meals. I weigh 162(10% bodyfat), and want to get down to 155(6% bodyfat), so Im certain that the carb amount will be on the low side.

Im gonna do more research on it, but I do recall reading that 3 grams of carbs a pound is ideal for either gaining or maintaining, but I forgot which one, unfortunately. This will be all paleo too.

Any comments or suggestions in regards to this plan are appreciated!

Cheers

Roy

Perhaps a possible way of assessing individual carb requirements would be...

Fully carb loaded weight - carb depleted weight =weight of carb storage capacity

Divided this by 4 = kg of stored carbs (based on assumption that 3g of water stored per 1g of CHO)

Sound feasable?

162 is my carb loaded weight, and I have yet to find out my depleted weight on friday. Lets say it's 158 for example. So 162-158=4. 4 divided by 4 is 1. So 1 kg of stored carbs? What does CHO stand for? I once knew, but forgot.

CHO is carbohydrate.

When I am fully depleted of CHO I lose 3 - 3.5 kg... that would suggest I am able to store about
3kg divide by 4 = 750g of CHO... thats about the best way I can think of working it out... anyone else got any ideas?
