    I miss carb up days...
    At least intentional ones.

    For those who do have carb up days... what do you all think of (mango)sorbet, bagels and baked lays chips for carb ups?

    Considering it.

    How did you diet when you were going to compete?

    I never understood this type of diet... could you explain it? Do you just eat really low carb all week and then load up one day a week?? What kind of percentages are we talking here for the regular week? I think I'm eating like 50-60% carbs throughout the week, but I really want to define up and I've been considering something similar.

    if it's carb cycling it's more like low-carb day, mid-carb day, high carb-day, something like that

    Well, I've got an old friend that I used to train with who is on this crazy diet. I'm pretty sure he eats very low carb most of the week, and then one day out of the week he goes nuts on pizza, baked chips, pasta, basically whatever he can cram into his hole to "refeed" for the week. :dunno: He's not natural, so I never applied his tactics to my diet, but my diet is in need of a major overhaul. He was cut and lean year round, so something must have been working for him... I was just hoping someone could really lay out how it works for me...
