    I've heard this mentioned many times on this forum.

    What's the rational for this? Do any of guys actually do it?

    I've been working out for a few years now and my diet is pretty decent. This is more of a point of curiosity than anything. Google wasn't much help.

    Mentioned it what context, positively or negatively? I don't really ever see the point in eating a whole bunch of carbs alone unless it's a refeed day or you're an enduro-weenie.

    from everything i've read you are supposed to eat carbs WITH protein. obviously this is more of a bulking exercise, but bulking or cutting, you should be having protein with every meal.

    I respond better to low carb diets, period. If i ate carbs like a lot of people here i'd be a mushy mess.

    .

    Protein + carbs for breakfast and post workout. (pre-workout too, sometimes.)

    Protein + fats later in the day.

    Carbs + Fats together, is pointless (except it tastes great :bowdown: peanut butter in oatmeal :bowdown:)

    fat lowers the glycemic response to the meal

    so then, you recommend combining fats with your carbohydrates?

    This.

    Every meal should be protein rich.

    I've read that your meals should be protein + fats or protein + carbs though... Never all three.

    At least this is what the book "cut diet" recommended. Not that I follow it :mamoru:

    I eat oatmeal and peanut butter all the time for breakfast. I think it's pretty nutritious and I'm def seeing results.

    When the book is saying not to eat Carbs and Protein together it's talking about eating something like a burger and fries, or a steak and mashed potatoes. Basically don't mix simple, starchy carbs with your protein as it will increase GI response.

    Eating some broccoli/spinach/veggies with your meat is the way to go imo. It will only add like 10g carbs max and adds a ton of nutrition and fiber to your diet.
