Has anyone ever heard of this carb back loading diet or tried it? I'm currently at 152 14.3% bodyfat trying to get to 8.5%. Alot of people are saying "its amazing" but sounds...different. Let me know.

You will have to be a little more specific. "Carb-backloading" is a pretty generic strategy and whether it is appropriate or not, and how to do it, depends on a lot of things. Like type and volume of exercise, and what/how much you are eating when you aren't loading up on carbs.

Also, in my experience, there is no such thing as an amazing diet for fat loss.

I have learned through trial and error there is NO miracles. Maybe you could explain carb backloading to me better. I work out at 4pm (because of work) and I work out 6 days a week. 3 days weight lifting and 2 days cardio all about 1-1 1/2 hours.

Google it. I'm actually starting the prep phase of it now. Actual cbl starts Thursday. People shouldn't knock it without at least looking into first. Lots of top level lifters have used it with awesome results.

Do you have a web page I can read about it? I have tried looking online but couldn't find anything that you don't have to buy. If you don't mind sending me what your meal plan/workout routine looks like I would like to see if this actually works.

There's a good discussion here that decided the issue for me:

apparently Arnold and Franco were among some of the greats who did it as well, only they weren't as structured in it, they just went by 'feel' and couldn't explain the science behind it working.

Check out http://www.dangerouslyhardcore.com/. There are forums on the site with plenty of good information on the diet.

It's John Keifer's website and he's the guy that came up with CBL. He's a pretty smart guy. I'm doing his Carb Nite diet for fat loss. It's taken me a few weeks to dial it in but now that I have I'm starting to have pretty good results.
