The Mighty Stu, a competitive bodybuilder, often talks about how he eats a Poptart or 2 after an intense lift, which is similar to Surge Recovery (sugar, fast acting carbs, etc…). I realize that poptarts are “crap” food, and not designed specifically for muscle recovery - but is there some method to Stu’s madness? I like to gather a lot of info from the other forums, then fact check those ideas over in the V-Life section.
A lot of bodybuilders use the idea of “bulking” as an excuse to eat shit, which I DEFINATELY have done…PS have you ever tried carb cycling? I’m thinking about keeping my “low” days around 50-90g carbs, baseline around 150-175g carb, and one high day of 250-300g carbs. I’ve done the V-Diet, and this is part of my newest expirement. Also, my current exercise program (sealfit.com) is high volume, and I need carbs to keep up…I get my carbs from oats, blueberries, and fruit on occasion - and all carbs are ingested during meal 1, para workout, and next meal…the rest of the day is pro, fat and green veggies! I love your recipes, and I can’t wait to read your daily posts everyday
PS Is PB2 really worth buying? I bought Walden Farms pb and it was AWFUL!
