Lifting heavy (or other hard stuff) and Low carbing
This has probably(definatly) been done to death before I'm sure, but my forum and google searches arn't helping bring up actually peoples experiance - I'm probably crap as searching or just have no tolerance for sifiting through stuff I don't want to read.
Last week or so I have been making an effort to drop my carbs even lower (avoiding sweet potatoes, cutting down on carrots and other root veg, increasing fat, and increasing gree stuff till I feel I might moo)
When I did my lift heavy (I really went for it all out, so was hanging by the end) I was ok most of the day, by towards the end of the day I found myself craving carbs badly, I had a banana with some heavy gloopy cream, felt a bit better, IIRC I also had 25 grams of 85% dark chocolate, I felt a bit more better, but that could just be the chocolate effect. I was still hungry so had some almonds with butter on (weird I know but actually rather yum) and several spoonfuls of the gloopy thick double cream.
Felt satisfied after piling all that fat into mr
So what I want to know if how do you react to high intesity training and low carbing.
From my limited knowledge of biochemistry I beleive that body uses glycogen when doing intense stuff - and that has to be repalced from somewhere, and is either gonna be from carbs or from protien.
Will I get enought to replace stores while eating low-carb if I tough out the carb craving and just pile down the fat and protien?
I'd be interested to hear what works for real people, thanks
