    I'm thinking about it. I'm going to get dialed back in (I'm treating the Beer Fest as a 3 day 'carb refeed') for the next week or two, and then who knows. Maybe I'll pick up 20 pounds of potatoes in a couple of weeks and start. I guess get all my heavy lifting in before I start eating potatoes? Then just light workouts during? Also, what about taking BCAAs while eating potatoes and working out?

    Enh, stuff to think about if I decide to do it.

      I'd say no to BCAA and workouts. I do light bodyweight stuff like half my normal pullups and pushups and walk 3-5 mi day while on a potato crash.

        As an update, I'm starting to mix up my workouts a little more, and my nutrition. I typically do one day "push" (chest, triceps, some kind of squat or lunge), then one day of "pull" (back, biceps, deadlifts or something), then a "rest day" that is lighter stuff like yoga or sprints or core or playing around with whatever. Then repeat the cycle, with a true day off where I really don't do anything physical at all every week. I'd been keeping my macros at like 70% fat, 20-25% protein most days.

        This week, I switched over to more of a full-body workout every other day (yesterday I did bench, incline dumbbell bench, inverted rows, rows, squats, something else, and like 60 pull ups/chin ups weighted with 30 pounds) with a day off in between where I do whatever. Yoga, something light. I also switched to doing reverse pyramid on most lifts. This was also the first time I've been legitimately sore from lifting in a while.

        I'm also eating lower fat/higher carb on lifting days and higher fat/lower carb on off days, high protein every day. So sort of leangains, but not strictly counting everything (I have a good feel for what is what, food-wise). I also usually don't eat before I work out and naturally IF by not needing breakfast.

        I'm gonna see how it goes for a few weeks, then reevaluate. Then...maybe potatoes. I'm kind of liking the challenge of getting totally shredded again.
