Re: Against the Current

Carb nite is your answer.

I dropped 14 lbs in 6 weeks and I am in wedding suit shape!

Oly lifting is now hitting a plateau. As carbs are now bare minimum.

After the I do, Carbs will bumped up to a real expectation .

Are you suggesting the American Dietetic Association, Dietitians of Canada, American College of Sports Medicine, International Olympic Committee, Australian Institute of Sport, International Association of Athletics Federations, and the British Dietetic Association have all somehow got it wrong?

675g of carbs from broccoli, not even discounting for fiber (most carb counters don't count fiber as most of it is not digested) is 21.3 lbs of broccoli, yes that is not a mistake 675g of carbs from broccoli is 21 lbs. If you would like to eat just white potatoes for carbs you would need 7lbs, daily!
If only there were other sources of carbohydrate......

Potatoes (white) came out to just over 7 lbs.

Apples = 10.6 lbs, and that would include 482g of sugar.... doesn't matter when you get sugar from it is still sugar. I understand that apples have other health benefits but they might be slightly outweighed at 482 grams.

What kind of competition is this? Understand that dropping over 20lbs by August will require a severe deficit of calories. Your performance will suffer greatly.

Sugar is what your body runs off of. Even if you eat fat instead.

..............

Your brain is the only organ that cannot run on fat.... but when it does not have adequate glucose it can run on bOHB or ketones.
