From what I've come to understand, consuming higher amounts of carbs on heavy lifting days is beneficial for recovery/muscle growth, and on those days, fat should be consumed less than on rest days (ive heard that around 50g is sufficient). What I'm a bit confused on is the timing of when to eat/not eat the carbs and fat. Are you supposed to limit fat intake POST workout, in favor of more carbs, or are you supposed to eat higher carb/lower fat throughout the course of the entire day?
