Ive been VLC meat and greens only, no sugar or starch at all (<20g veggie carb/day) for 6 months now. I feel and look good, but I want more. After seeing such amazing bodies created by the leangains approach, I want to give it a try. Carbs are really gonna make me sick while I adjust, but I'm determined to see if I can do it.
Leangains basically prescribes low carb/higher fat on non training days, and high carb/low fat on training days. Can someone please help me with more specifics?
I've downloaded various leangains macro calculators: http://www.1percentedge.com/ifcalc/ http://www.fatceliac.com/calculator/macrosmen.html
But these let you choose your carb/fat split on rest/training days. Being fat adapted, I'd rather eat no carbs on rest days, and higher on training days.
Basically, whats the minimum amount of carbs I can get away with on rest days (0% ok?), and whats the maximum amount of fat I can get away with on training days?
What is possible/acceptable in the plan?
I'd really appreciate the guidance of those who know and have done it.
