I've had great success in the past on a primal diet, but at the time it was entirely to lose weight. When I started lifting I went back to a standard bodybuilding IIFYM diet (40/40/30 I believe.) I'm trying to cut now and I want to go back to primal, because I felt far better on that diet, but there are a few things I'm worried about. I've heard a lot about glycogen replenishment and how it's harder to replenish your muscles without a lot of carbs, but I know next to nothing about the actual process or the science behind that. I've just seen people saying that if you don't get enough carbs to replenish your muscle glycogen post-workout, your body will go into catabolism. Is there any truth to that?
No announcement yet.
