Say i took 3000 cals on workout day just bumpig my carbs up to hit 3000cals and on off days etc stay at maintenance? That correct ?

    Yeah pretty indepth thread and very informative, good read. So jn terms of fat mono and poly are the good ones ? Trans and saturated are the bad ?

    Yes to the fats. I am currently doing almost exactly what you posted. Only real difference is since I am still trying to lose fat on my non-lifting days I am still eating my maintenance - 400'ish. On lift days I bump it up to maintenance + 400'ish calories. So far so good but I've only been at it a couple of weeks. On lift days I eat most of my carbs in the meal before lifting and the meal after lifting and taper the rest off as the days proceeds and finish it up at night before bed with a casein shake (1.5 servings) with 8-10 ounces of almond milk in the hopes of preserving as much lbm as possible. Seems to be working but too soon to tell for sure!

    Yeh Carb cycling is good. Just lower ur carbs on the non workout days personally. Refers for your sessions. But self monitor. If ur stuck. U might need to add more food. If u start gaining too fast lose some n remember. If ur weight changes. So does ur macros!!

    ahh thats what i like to see interesting with the cut -400 on the off maintenance i actually might try that but maybe switch it up abit and go negative 200 below maintenance, keeping the carbs for early throughout the day and tapering off like u said i also had that in mind. ive got my diet pretty well setup im going to switch it up maybe every month(carb source's) imma probably hit up ON for some supps
