Hey Shelby!

I am a 198lbs class Powerlifter, but try to get up to the 220's over time. I follow your carb cycling approach, which i absolutely love!

However, my bodyweight is sitting at 197-198lbs right now, but weight gain has stalled. I short for 1-2lbs per month.

My question now is, where would you increase calories in my regimen?

I split it up into

1. High Carb Days (2x per Week) with:
3400 calories, 310g Protein, 340g Carbs, 90g Fat

2. Medium Carb Days (2x per Week) with:
3200 calories, 310g Protein, 290g Carbs, 90g Fat

3. Low Carb Days (3x per Week) with:
2900 calories, 310g Protein, 120g Carbs, 130g Fat

High Carb days are my Squat and Deadlift Sessions, Medium Carb days on my Upper body Sessions and Low carb Days on my off days.

To be able to ask someone like you with your knowledge via the Q&A section here is phenomenal and i am thankful to have the chance to use it!

Thanks a lot


Start with bumping up your carbs on medium and high days by about 50g per day
