    Waxy on non-workout days?

    I have been cutting with great results for the past 11 weeks. But starting in April, I will begin carb cycling.

    It will look something like this:

    Low: 1 Scoop of Waxy (50g roughly)
    High: 1 Cup of Oates, 1 8oz Sweet Potato, 2 Scopp of Waxy (190g roughly)
    Medium: 1/2 cup of Oates, 1.5 Scoops of Waxy (95g roughly)

    ^Note that I did include the mandatory carbs that come with veggies and lean protein source in the carb days above. Somewhere around an extra 15-20g.

    My question is, Should I still have Waxy on my non workout days?

    I train M-F and take off Saturday and Sunday.

    Instead of having some waxy on Saturday and Sunday, should I add some ezeqiuel bread or a couple more sweet potatos to get the desired amount of carbs in or should I just use the Waxy (even though it wouldn't be used PWO cause I won't be training on those days)

    Thanks

    Definitely not a good food choice other than PWO nutrition and even then, I, like Base, see no real advantage over a complex carb like oats.

    Would you guys reccomend substituting more Oates on my non-work out days or should I make it a combo of Sweet potatos, oates, and ezequiel bread?

    All good carb sources, no need to eat more oats than other equally good options.

    Order of preference

    1.oats
    2.Sweet potato
    3.ezikiel bread

    Just drop the waxy for now and swap it out with ground oat

    A simple swap as the ground oats can be added to shakes like the waxy

    I dunno man. The Ezekiel bread I've been getting boasts a GI value of 34, less sodium than 8 raw almonds, 9g of fiber per 40g of complex carbs, and a very broad spectrum of live grains.

    Foods for Life also makes pasta with an equally impressive nutrition profile. In fact, that entire section of my health food store presents options that may be superior to just the raw staples. I'm talking breads and pastas made from sprouted grains, beans, lentils, and chickpeas that offer as much protein as 3 ounces of chicken breast per serving, accompanied by a day's worth of fiber inherent to the legumes. I mean, I still eat oats all the time but there's a lot of great stuff out there in the right stores.
