all my friends combine macros im like an outkast not combing the two, and my buds are pretty ripped as well

i also know a few guys that have protein only meals and have carb/fat only meals so i guess this issue is to each there own, and what ever works for you??

yeah, I think it depends how your body responds.

What do you mean by eating clean while combining the two?
Other than that you raise a good question. So bump as well.

Eating clean as in minimizing bad/saturated fats, less big macs with extra cheese and more tuna.
Until recently, I never consciously separated carbs/fats and have always been lean and naturally cut. I started doing it recently and the only difference I've noticed is that it's harder to get the calories...but my experiment is not over and these early results should not be treated as gospel.

i eat clean pretty much year round and i combine my macros... a good friend on mine does as well (steak and brown rice quite often) and he came in a show ripped and took 2nd. out of ten with the overall winner being the first in the class.

I think it has a lot to do with how lean you are. Lean guys can get away with combining macros while others can't. I've known guys who literally ate pizza and fast food 4 weeks out from their show and came in completely ripped. That's the thing....nutritional intervention is not a one size-fits-all shoe. You have to tweak, adjust and find what works best for you. Just starting out though, I would definately suggest seperating macros. As you get more and more lean, you can afford to experiment with different food combos.

ive been eating clean for a while (chicken, rice, flax meals a lot) but i never separated carbs and fats until about two months ago. I have noticed some fat loss but im not sure if it is the cardio on an empty stomach or the separation method.

You should try to stick with one method for a period of a time, like 8-12 weeks and measure your progress throughout. Then at the end of your duration, you can try other methods and see what works best for you.

Was it just the separation of your macro's that made the differnce?

I used to seperate my macros and recently began combining them and it's been really great to tell you the truth. I have bean able to lean out just as quickly and have greater freedom with food selection.
11-09-2005, 08:21 PM #20
I no longer seperate.
In the early part of my career i combined macros...sometimes i even had protein-only meals.
When i joined AR i read the suggestions of those that came before me...and switched to pro/carb or pro/fat.
Honestly...i get in killer shape...but not as much, or as easily as before.
So now i'm back to combining macros ..but eating clean.

I'm not trying to be a pain, its just obvious from you pics you get results!

he is saying he eat carbs and fats in the same meal as long as they are CLEAN........
oats, whey and anob
steak and rice
eggs and oats, etc......
just not dextrose and reeces pb cups...........with us?
01-28-2006, 12:22 PM #24
i never really split up my meals unless its in the midst of using slin.. other than that its all fair game as long as there is ample protein
01-28-2006, 03:47 PM #25
every meal does (and I think should) contain all 3 macros............EXCEPT postwork c/p only and prebed fats/pro only
eggs and oats
pb on ww
yams and chicken
beef n rice
ALL STAPLES FOR ME.....although one meal i have is cottage cheese and almonds with fiber one on top..........dont think that qualifies.

Damn bro, don't worry about seperating macros. I'm bigger and harder than ever from eating all three together. Chicken, rice and olive oil. Chicken, Poatoes and yougurt drink with olive oil, cucumbers dill and water in it with a little salt. And so on, be creative. Eat like a king to be as big as a king.
