I train 1-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, and my diet is decidedly high-carb. I've read that high-carb on work days and low-carb/high-fat on rest days. Is there any point in this if my work days outnumber my rest days as they do? Should I just eat moderate-everything on rest days, or can/should I do high-fat?
I'm 6'2", 200lb, and looking to lean out a little bit.
I'm a big fan of high volume training most days, I try to train everyday for around 1.5-2 hours dependent if I make it to my local crossfit box.
If Paleo hunters hunted everyday why cant we train everyday, we lost the spear and picked up the barbell :)
If they hunted every day, then they weren't very good at it. The more you hunt, the more you eat, therefore it made sense that during times where foods were scarce, rest and foraging predominated. The times when food animals were present probably resulted on a few hunts a week, enough to feed the tribe with little leftovers due to the lack of storing capabilities. Either way, 1.5-2 hours/day of high volume training doesn't necessarily equate to a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. It might, but the issue then becomes why weren't the hunts effective?
