Carb Backloading Results

I think I got a few raised eyebrows when I quietly announced I was going to try Carb Backloading.  There was a little bit of a shock factor.  Here are my carb backloading results.

A wise man once said "Results speak for themselves." This should compliment...

Use My Carb Back Loading Meal Plan to Get Started Faster

A Prep Phase is suggested before you start carb backloading.  It’s quite simple.  You go ULC for 10 days.  You weight yourself before and after and the number of pounds lost is your target carbs for backloading.  At the time, mine came out to be 409g per day for density bulking.  As weeks went by, I adjusted that to 350g as 200g was too low and 409g was too high.  Nevertheless, it proved to be an excellent starting point.  While it’s not required to do this prep phase, it’s highly recommended so that you can figure out your own personal...
