    General experience of it? Effective? How long were you in it. I did low carb (less than 50g a day) for a long time but to me carbs are useful hence the idea to try carb nite. Did you find it a slog?




    Thanks in advance

    No mate, finding it easy... Using it now to be honest.
     
    Take home points though, put your more heavier or priority training sessions closer post carb nite... As the week goes on, you may struggle in the gym the more you get depleted.  
     
    My overall training volume has been reduced as I can't train as much, or as long as I was but that is to be expected as I'm in a calorie deficit. Currently 3 to 4 heavy sessions a week, and at present no CV.
     
    Keep the fats up, keep the protein decent... I'm currently on about 1:1 on g's but will adjust it in the future.

    Thanks mate, interesting.



    Think I will give it a go soon and see how I get on. What would a typical days food be? Guessing loads of variables of eggs and loads of meat!

    I try to limit the amount of eggs as they're quite insulinogenic, so they can spike insulin easily, same as whey.
     
    So with eggs I'll have 3 to 4 and some other fat sources too like butter.
     
    In general though, meat, green veggies, fish, butter, double cream, fish oil, eggs, cheeses are the main bulk.
