That is right and that is also the reason, why i thought about sticking to these guidlines instead of doing a real diet (that would probably make me weak and i end up with small 75kg).

What do you think. should i try those? Or would it be too radical to switch from high carb nutrition to lower carb nutrition (carbs only around training)?

and second: Would this kind of nutrition also help me building muscle like i would when eating a lot of carbs?

thank you very much!


Personally, I'd just eat and train to be great - "low carb" or whatever the new craze is not awesome.

1. Low carb training/lifting is not a good idea. Some can argue that they "got stronger" but no one ever got strong and awesome.

2. Nope. Why are you afraid to eat food? Eating doesn't make you fat. Carbs don't make you fat. Bad choices make you fat. Don't make bad choices.

I don't know the answers to diet - all I do is eat normal, everyday food and NEVER stuff myself. Take some vitamins and I'm on my way. I don't understand how this only works for me.
