more carbs for bulk?
WTF I just read an article written by Dorian Yates and he was talking about his carb/protien intake...he says that while bulking he usually consumed a lot more clean carbs then he did protien, I cant remember the exact # of carbs but he said around 200gms of protien per day, He has got to be misleading people on purpose here because I dont see how as big as he was, only getting 200gms of protien ed, anyone agree w/ this? It reminds me of a Weider principle or something, I swear I read an article in Flex once that said vic martinez only consumed around 200gms ed also???

Maybe they don't count the protein shakes?

That definitley sounds like somn ecrap... that doesn't even seem to meet the mnimum he used to boast of 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight...

well the body can only absorb so much protein so they make up the xtra cals in carbs but still doesnt bide by the proper macros... but w/ the krap they take there are exceptions.

That is what peaked my intrest, the amount of protien that can be absorbed, I am sure that number rises while on cycle.

200 may be lowballin it, but yea most people bulk with more carbs than protein, usually a 50/30 ratio of carbs to pro.

there's been studies that prove your body is really only able to absorb 1g/lbs of body weight, actualy i think it was 1g/lean body weight, so if this is true then he' probably has a point, your muscle can store a huge amount of glycogen, which makes them look bigger, makes em stronger so why ingest so much of something if you're actually not using it for it's primary purpose, why not fill the void with a macro nutrient your body will utilize. Thats my reasoning...
