    Lean Mass Diet (sticky)

    hey all, i'm looking to switch from my cutting diet to a lean mass in about a month or so. I was looking at the sticky of the lean mass diet and noticed that some meals mix fat and carbs together? Is mixing the two just bad when it comes to a cutting diet or does it apply all the time whether cutting, lean mass, or bulking? please help.... i'm now confused!

    thanks,

    If it was me.. I would not mix fat and carbs. I would stick to pro/carb and pro/fat meals. I suggest this because you will gain less fat while bulking.

    I'm assuming you talking about these meals? (just in case I'm missing something):

    5:15 120 gm of steak
    20 gm of whey protein
    Mustard
    50 gm of carrots
    5 ml of flax seed oil

    1 HOUR TRAINING START 6:00PM to 7:00PM

    7:15 60 gm of whey
    5 rice cakes (caramel flavored)
    1 apple
    2.5 ml of flaxseed oil

    First offering I'd nix the carrots, hate em anyway, and I'd never have a second meal like that ever, so it doesn't apply.

    Dependent upon the cut of steak, the flax oil may be better served at another time as well.

    yeah those were some of the meals i was referring too. some of the other meals as well combine fats and carbs.
    ie.
    12:45 8 eggs & green onion & light mayo (makes an egg salad)
    3 pieces of whole-wheat bread w/ ham
    1 banana
    15 gm of whey protein
    1 yogurt

    9:30 125 gm of cottage cheese
    15 gm of whey protein
    1 no sugar added fat free yogurt

    so a question is , would a diet consisting of pro/carb and pro/fat combinations be a more ideal diet for gaining lean mass? such as
    5-6 meals per day, (3 pro/carb, 2-3 pro/fat)
    I.E.

    meal 1. pro/carb
    m2 pro/fat
    m3 pro/fat
    workout
    m4 pro/carb
    m5 pro/carb
    m6 pro/fat
    ?????

    aLSO: swole --> you would nix the carrots because their high glycemic????

    thanks fellas.

    not that its a big deal, but i wanted to point out that raw carrots are actually very low GI (about 55) only when cooked are carrots higher (in the 70s i think) personally i dont eat them either, but i figured i would post some info FYI.

    thanks for the responses...

    Dalcowbag --> it was for the lean mass diet not the "bulking diet". I've read the lean mass diet sticky too. Would I still switch meals 3 and 5 for the LEAN mass diet????

    thanks man,
    capone
