i'm very curious about this...
a lot of people who are cutting say: "my carb intake will be high on my training days and my carb intake will be low on my rest days"
Reason why carb intake should be high on training day:
thats because you need energy for your workout. without the carb intake, assimilation of that to produce energy wont occur.
Reason why carb intake should be low on rest / off days:
thats because you don't want to consume more than you release. i.e. you dont want a big difference between your energy output and input.
that being said, here is a fmaous quote:
You grow outside the gym, NOT inside it.
if the above quote is true, then:
Carb intake should be high on off days
because your body will require the extra energy to heal the muscle broken down in the gym...
if this is true, how can one have a low carb intake on the off days..?
