    What a retarded way of doing things. What about foods which contain a decent amount of two or three macros. What about a mixed meal.

    Apex Predator diet cliff notes

    Low carb days:
    Protein: 2g/Lb
    Fats: 1g/lb

    High carb days:
    Protein: 2g/Lb
    Carbs: As many as you can in 3 hours once a week

    When you get into the single digits, you have another carb day laid out as follows:
    Protein: 2g/Lb
    Fats: 0.5g/Lb
    Carbs: 1g/Lb

    Unlike Shelby Starnes recommendations, these recommendations are for all the food combined

    Now things are getting complicated. I will have to read more into it!

    Anyhow I had a low carb day today but my workout tonight had insane pumps.

    May be keep it simple and do something like 'Carb Nite', easy plan to follow and pretty fool proof if you stick to it. I will probably be giving it a run after the xmas and new years festivities are over.

    At the moment just moderating my food intake and trying not to go too crazy through December.

    Cheers

    I'm a similar weight to you and about 10%BF. Have done plenty of carb cycling.

    Low carb days 1500ish cals. 200ish P/50C/ rest fat. 4-5 per week

    refeed over 1.5days. Approximately 1100g carbs. P 1g/lb of LBM. Low fat (aim for 50g or less)

    Works well for me. I don't think it's required until you are relatively lean. 12% or less at a guesstimate.
    Best Comp total 200/95/240 = 535 at 82.5kg
    SQ 210kg BP 105kg DL 240kg SOHP 70kg at 83kg
