In simple terms anaerobic excersize (without oxygen,such as weight lifting) tends to use carbohydrates as the main source of energy. In the aforementioned example I used in the prior post
, it isn't the intent to grow muscle, necessarily
, as the focus is to lose tissue and deplete glucose stores (I.E. surrounding muscle, liver, etc, etc). The combination of higher reps/low carbohydrates can be effective combination in certain instances with certain individuals with tissue loss goals. Manipulation of the macro nutrients in conjunction with one's goals, is important, and least understood. Another example, something like this would be good for a person who has established a good muscle foundation through a bulk, and is cutting to rid the last portion of fat tissue.
