No problem, I'm glad I was able to. I attempted going pretty low carb and upping exercise myself with bad effects, as a result of reading that article but before hearing the podcast. You should write to Rob or someone on his team to update that article.

Thanks again. About once every 2 months, I get an itch to grab a pint of Ben & Jerry's "Everything But The..." ice cream and treat myself. Last night I figured would be a good time to satisfy it : )
I had a combined Fundamentals session this morning from 8:30 to 10. I felt pretty good and although I was sweating like crazy and at the end was pretty winded, I feel *right* now - a little sore (good sore), but energized.
I won't be eating Ben & Jerry's again anytime soon but I will start making a point to add a sweet potato/bananas more and go from there.
Low Carb Learning
i think it was an old robb wolf podcast from a while ago. if i remember correctly, matt had to run in tothe ben and jerry's in harvard square and gobble down all that ice cream to basically keep from croaking.

If anyone is still around I do Crossfit and eat about 30 to 80 carbs a day. I have not figured out how and when to eat more carbs on workout days or if I need too. I am a naturally big guy and do very well on protien only. I dont miss carbs but Im not sure if it effecting my workouts. I love white rice and sweet potatoe. Should I have a nice portion by them selfs after a work out.
Eating high glycemic carbs after a workout is the optimum time to have them.
