    I would like to cut carbs out to a large degree, but I eat about 3500 calories a day to maintain, where do you guys get this amount just eating fats and lean protein? I would ideally only like to eat carbs post workout and on one cheat day per week, similar to the Anabolic diet. Any sample diets?
