Hey, so I'm wondering, what should you have in a post workout meal if you follow Nate Miyaki's or John Kiefer's nutritional protocols of eating the majority of carbs at night, ASSUMING you train fasted in the early morning? I'm just curious... (more)

Fill your boots: http://bit.ly/12ayQWu Whether back-loading actually makes that great a difference is debatable I think though that consuming carbs post-workout is probably doing more of the overall work. I would think though that... (more)

Most of the time I eat lower-carb. 2 meals per day, <40g per meal from veggies and the occasional nuts/legumes. I do periodic carb-ups sometimes timed around workouts, sometimes the night before, and sometimes just because. I have no... (more)

Just keep an eye on your blood sugar. A cheap glucose meter from walmart is under $20. Depending on the individual, a glucose bolus can be terribly harmful. Once serum glucose goes over 140, serious and most likely permanent damage is being... (more)

I have just restarted intermittent fasting after an extended break, however this time I have combined it with the anabolic diet purely for experimental reasons, in an attempt to turn my body into a 'fat-burning machine'. Despite the wellbeing... (more)

If you are trying to be anabolic, then staying in calorie restriction will defeat the purpose somewhat. As to carb refeeds, go with clean starchy sources. Fructose is labeled a carb, but is more of a hybrid as it is turned into a lipid (fat) by... (more)

A recent question drew my attention to Nate Miyaki, and he's seems pretty legit to me. He seems to be recommending quite a bit of starch for people that lift weights. However, he seems to recommend that fats be kept very low when feasting on so... (more)

I believe it is because carbs raise your insulin levels which promotes fat storage. Thus if you don't have much fat in your blood, it cannot be stored in fat cells.

Hi all so I have been doing IF for about a week or two and love it. I have decided to start carb back-loading as well. I usually train (crossfit 5-6 days a week) in the morning and as I understand it that's not the optimal time if you are doing... (more)

All in the title. Do you keep it paleo, or go the Kiefer route? I personally do some raw goat's milk with grass-fed whey and a big handful of dates... then about an hour later a sweet potato with honey and a big portion of meat.

Does anybody know if carb-backloading post-workout for muscle gain only works if you are keto the rest of the time, or can it still have benefits at around 150 grams of carbs per day, i.e. more of a "maintenance" daily carb intake?

Kiefer is a bright guy and whether or not you buy his book I also suggest you search for podcasts by him. You have the gist of his protocol already, but so do most people before they buy his book, and while I don't have his book I'd be confident... (more)

I do something similar, and the approach of finding a happy medium between the two works. I generally add some extra carbs PWO (a banana, sweet potatoes, etc) and just eat normal Primal on my off days. It works better for me then straight... (more)

You don't have Dawn phenomenon, your blood sugars are completely normal. Blood glucose spikes due to the Dawn phenomenon are perhaps an order of magnitude higher than what you're experiencing. As to your question about higher morning blood... (more)

Slow steady weight loss is the only way to set yourself up for a lifetime of proper health. Gimmicks don't work longterm in general. Keto didn't last for you, carb cycling won't last, you need something that requires no thought and is natural... (more)

Has anyone had success with carb backloading (Kiefer style)? Does it work for fat loss? What does your typical carb- load look like?
