Lightbulb Low carb / carb cycling + high fat + high protein + calorie deficit - gains

So this has been bothering me for some time, this oversimplification of muscle gain mantra of "no muscle growth without excess calories"... it completely negates stored fat. Lets say your total caloric usage including your workout is 3000 calories. You eat 2500. Given sufficient protein intake...

Post workout carbs

The rapid decline in growth hormone levels, by consuming carbs immediately post workout, is it due to the fact that the massive insulin spike depresses growth hormone output or is it due to the fact that the insulin drives the GH out of the blood and into the muscle and thereby lead to low serum GH...
