    First, what time to do normally work out? If you can, try and schedule it towards the PM hrs, I'll explain why in a bit..

    secondly, try carb back-loading..This is an effective way for "some" to help with carb cravings if you have any, especially when trying to lean down..

    Essentially reducing carbs is our attempt to induce a state of themogenesis and have our body use fat as a fuel, but it can be catabolic as well, depending on your goal will ultimately boil down to what best suits your needs..

    Bear in mine and even carb back-loading in the PM our bodies will still burn during the following day in the AM and mid PM hrs, but people tend to think just in reveres with this process.. This can help assist with the craving and hunger brought on the next day.. We can slice and dice all sorts of carb cutting/loading phases along with timing but at the end of the day most are honestly equivocal in many senses with some trade-offs here and there (individual based).. - in terms of leaning down

    If carbs are an issue and if you possibly have sensitivity issues, carb back-loading just may be for you, plus it can assist with keeping you from flattening out..

    Carbs and BGL/BS can be a very isolated topic, because what works for one person may not work for the next.. Genetics, family history, metabolism, ultru-metabolisation, insulin sensitivity, training and much much more can all play a huge factor..

    My closing statement will be:
    When it concerns carbs, it ultimately comes down to NOT quantity but rather quality..Know your carbs and make the right choices and now how and when to time them best..Oats, brown rice, yams and sweet potato's and lets not forget about beans, beans are very underrated...If you're restricting most carbs, keep in mind that it's still pivatol for post for reasons that others stated..

    If you work out in the later PM hrs the back loading phase will still give you that added fuel for the muscle bellies..back loading can help you gauge and structure your diet throughout the day focusing on other macros..
    Rice/beans with some chicken later in the evening is a killer combo, also for digestive properties come the AM..

    Try back-loading carbs, and keep post carbs in the mix, see how you make out!
    Hey vision thanks a bunch.

    For my body I have actually found,
    1.carb cycling isnt for me
    2. My body does better on higher carb lower fat
    3. Watching your micros helps a ton with both carbs and fat intake to keep one in check to choose good carbs and good fats.
    4. Choosing healthy carbs and just completely skipping fitting in the bad ones helps to reduce carb cravings.


    But I 100% agree everyone is so different and different things work for different people. We just have to continue to learn ourselves.

    My carbs are flavored quick oats with meal 1, Jasmine rice in meals 3 and 5, then red potato after training in meal 6.

    If that helps any
    Hey mr skip!!!! Funny you say this. I find that works well. Some carbs in breakfast then a heavier carb lunch and snack and then finish off my carbs after my workout.

    I spread my carbs out almost evenly thru the entire day. Almost every meal of mine is 50-60g, post workout is slightly higher at 75g

    Mrs is 30g first 4 meals, trace carbs last 2
