CBL advice

Hi guys

Have been bulking for a while now and have put in a fair but of fat especially around the abdomen. I spoke to a trainer at the gym tonight who mentioned carb backloading so just wanted to get some advice from you guys on this? Has anyone any experience following this? Results? Sample diet etc?

Will you lose strength following something like this?

Is it possible to bulk following this?

Cheers in advance and give me a shout if you require anymore info.

Matt

    Have you read the e-book? It explains everything you need to know.

    isnt any ebook going to be semi instructional/semi promotional.  What about some unbiased info?

    Just move more and eat less, it's pretty simple, carb back loading is just going to take away calories from your diet leading to a deficit which can be achieved by eating a little less overall.

    If anything you'd be better off going with intermittent fasting over carb back loading.

    But then that depends on your lifestyle and how active you are.

    The bottom line is with what ever you do is energy in vs energy out, that will determine fat loss.

    If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.

    That's true but sometimes its easier to have some kind of structure when it comes to macros to help people stick to a plan.  If you got 2 groups and told half "eat slightly less every meal" and the second group "Try not to eat any carbs at all".  Chances are the 2nd group are going to eat less calories overall.

    Well if you want to know how a protocol and program works, it's best to read the actual book for it first...

    I presume that you want to loose the fat? I would run a cut for 3/4 weeks and aim to loose around 4/6lbs of fat then go on a lean bulk.
     
    Lean bulking with a lower level of body fat will give you more pleasing results but admittedly slower. In some ways you are almost doing a body recomp where you adding small amounts of size (hopefully muscle) whilst gaining little fat.
     
    In regards to carbs, as im cutting I take a majority of mine post work out (probably about 90%) - I've also found skipping breakfast has helped a lot. I have a shake mid morning around 10am then lunch at 1pm and feel more awake than i do when i have something like at 7.30
     
    if you keep your lifts heavy i doubt you will loose any strength, sometimes I fail on 1 or 2 reps but I think thats more so the affects of cutting and every day is different with the body possibly needing more fuel. 
     
    for instance ive been doing floor bench press and this week I did
     
    82.5 X 5 reps (really struggled 5th rep)
    80 X 4 reps
    85 x 3 reps
    85 X 2 reps
    90 X 1 rep (PB)
     
    I think with a bit more fuel in me the opening reps would have been easier. Just need to tweak here and there, as long as you make progression in terms of lifts and mirror then you're doing something right.

    THe opening post seems to be asking does it work, and pros/cons rather than just "how to"

    Well of course it works, otherwise people would be slating it all over the shop.
     
    Pro's and cons... There are none because they're user dependant.
     
    The system if used correctly as the book outlines, works very well. However there are some user dependant refinements that have to be made, hence why the book is a good read.

    I don't hear people slating it specifically, but I hear plenty of people saying nutrient timing is pretty much irrelevant all over these boards.  And this system is all about nutrient timing.
