    Are you doing a 1/2 TCD or a full TCD. As in do you stop carbs after a certain time or do you eat all carbs PWO? When do you do legs? Also HIIT maybe extreme unless done on High carb day. I tend to just stick with low intensity. However, up to you and your goals.

    But maybe a High, low, No, High, Low, No, Pick

    This gives you carbs on lifting days with No carbs on off days. The High carb should help the next day if you lift in the early morning. On Sunday, pick which ever you feel you want to do.

    I read an article on T-Nation called "Carb Cycling for Idiots." Pretty decent IMO, straight to the point. If you do Upper/Lower split, you have high starch intake on lower body days, moderate starch on upper body days, and no starch intake on off days. If doing a full body split, high starch on on days, no starch on off days. Working another split, high starch working larger muscles, moderate starch working smaller muscles, and no starch on off days.

    Thanks for the link. I just took a look at it, and had a question. On the moderate and high starch day, when he says workout starch, what does he mean by that? And on no starch days, how many times a day do you eat vegetables and fruit?
