Carb Backloading resource
 
Lots of questions on this topic recently. Here's some of the information I have used:

I never bought the book the carb backloding book. I looked into it but couldn't justify spending that much. I found plenty out from the EliteFTS articles:

EFS Classic:Carb Back-loading

Long-Term Carb Back-Loading

Here's all of Kiefer's articles:

Elite FTS | kiefer

I did a bit of reading on his website and forum:

Dangerously Hardcore -

However, I found it all a bit too sheep like and strict for my liking. As for the training... :confused:

Feel free to post more info and links in here.

Carb Back-Loading Cliff Notes

1. Shift calories to later in the day, eating lighter in the
morning and early afternoon, and feast at night. This
may include skipping breakfast.
2. Keep carbs at an absolute minimum throughout the
day until training.
3. Train in the afternoon, at around 5pm or so.
4. Start ingesting carbs after your training session, up to
30 minutes later.
5. Continue eating carbs throughout the night.
This is how I've been eating since early 2008. I never eat carbs during the day, only protein. I eat very low cal before my training, 500 cals max. I train around 4pm, and usually would feast afterwords with a huge meal and follow up snack.

Unless I'm missing something else important, this is exactly how I've eaten for quite sometime. It's allowed me to maintain muscle mass and build quite a bit of strength, but I still needed to heavily watch calorie intake. (Obvious, I know)

Just wondering if you guys losing fat are monitoring calories? I ran a protocol like this exclusively in 2010 when I lost 35 pounds but I had to run an extremely monitored calorie intake, just as I did with frequent feeding. I can see it being much easier for young lifters with faster metabolisms.

I have only read the first 30 pages and not seen anything commenting on calorie guidelines, etc, during the evening. I am a bit tired and could have missed it.

Bookmarked. Thank you LtL. I don't think carb counting is for me as I've failed more than once at it. I need to drop some fat around my stomach and I am considering the low carb option. Any way, sorry for the novel, looking forward to learning more about this.

I don't eat strictly in a carb back-loading fashion, but somewhat similar. Seems to work well for me, but I still have a fast metabolism at 29 years old.

Does he advocate counting, or any form of monitoring, restrictions or limitations? Or is it mostly based on satiety and semi-reasonable consumption (not eating a box of Ding Dongers)?

He recommends using the mirror and how you feel. He says having an idea of what your intake is will help you make adjustments if needed. Basically if you wake up bloated, cut back. And though he says you can eat junk like pizza and ice cream he opts the whole food alternatives, or homemade. He does not suggest pizza form the grocery store freezer, cookies? bake them at home. White breads, rice, potatos, yams are direct whole food sources. He says stay away from whole grains.
