    Question Carb-Backloading

    Was curious if anyone has ever tried carb-backloading? I have been reading up on it and got the general idea, but I was looking for past experiences and adjustments you had to make.

    Some have, but it's pretty pointless unless you want to eat that way. There is not magic to meal timing or fancy systems like CBL, other than the magic they use to separate people from their money.

    Look into the Biorythm Diet...

    http://www.reactivetrainingsystems.c...Biorhythm-Diet

    -- By ingesting high-fat meals in the evening, you induce "metabolic inflexibility" – effectively disrupting metabolic rate and increasing fat storage, risk of obesity, elevated insulin levels and a reduction in insulin sensitivity.

    -- By ingesting high-fat meals in the morning and afternoon, you increase metabolic flexibility – setting the metabolism for higher fat oxidation throughout the day. As LPL enzyme (splits up circulating fatty acids and makes them available for storage) is higher in muscle in the AM, fats are more likely to be burned off as energy or stored as lipid droplets within the muscle (IMTG).

    -- By ingesting high-carb meals in the morning, the same “metabolic inflexibility” occurred, and the metabolism is fixed towards glucose oxidation instead of fat oxidation. This also increases fat storage from meals eaten during the day, and higher-fat meals eaten in the evening in particular.
    -- By ingesting high-carb meals in the evening, you get a bump in the natural leptin signal (occurring 3-6hrs after going to sleep), essentially increasing fat burning through the night and the rest of the following day.

    -- Insulin sensitivity is higher in all cells early in the day, including fat cells, but decreases towards the afternoon and evening, thus partitioning carbs ingested at this time more efficiently into muscle vs. fat. This is obviously further improved by training the muscle that day.

    -- Eating carbs will increase the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin and make you sleepy. What better time to have your carbs than a couple of hours before bedtime so you can fall into a deeper, higher-quality sleep

    Thanks for the link. The Biorythm diet seems pretty similar to carb-backloading except carb-backloading has 10 day prep-phase of under 30g of carbs, and Kiefer suggests high GI carbs for last meal. Do you think high GI or low GI has a big effect on fat loss or muscle gain?

    no
    calories is the matter for muscle gain.

    Mr. Chef Bob why did you post that Biorhythm diet? I'm curious. Do you believe it offers anything special...? Or just because it's similar to what OP asked for?

    I'm just surprised because it seems like a fancy pants gimicky marketing type thing for a diet, and I know you to be a very solid and knowledgeable poster.

    I realize overall calories result in muscle gains, but wouldn't your previous post suggest nutrient timing is more important than previously thought on the forum to optimize results? Or do you think its effects are minimal?
