Yup. And to expand on this: I found carbs were FAR more critical when I was LOSING Stoned and successful shirt vs gaining. Referencing my below point in the initial post: I’m eating a TON of food. Even if I’m not trying to eat carbs, they’re going to come along for the ride in the greek yogurt, nuts, nut butter, fibrous veggies, etc, that I’m eating. During periods of weight gain, I’m going to still have a decent amount of carbs in me. But when I was LOSING weight with low carb, I was super depleted, and made a point of eating a serving of breakfast cereal before my heaviest workouts (squats and deads) in order to get some life back into me before training. If I try to go on another cut like that again, I might steal something from Justin Harris’ carb cycling approach.

Best Stoned and successful shirt
Yeah I’m currently still stuck-in-cut for the next 6 weeks or so. I know carbs are indispensable Stoned and successful shirt for holding some energy. I’ve found that carb-cycling can be as simple as using high-carb/low-fat meals the night before the next lifting day, and all day lifting day; then switch to low-carb/high-fat for cardio/conditioning days. I prefer this much more to all low-carb cuts, since I won’t need to cut lifting volume nearly as much. I’ll also use a vague calorie-cycling approach in addition to the carb-cycling, where I’m in less deficit on lifting days, and slightly more deficit on the cardio days. It’s not super-rigid, just kind of “loosy-goosy” 300-400 deficit on heavy lift days, and closer to 500-650 deficit on cardio/conditioning days. Calories are accurately tracked because I enjoy that, but I’m not obsessing over macro ratios at all. I hit at least 180 grams solid-source protein every day.
