I eat a relatively lower carb diet, but it isn't a "LOW, low carb" diet by any means. I am simply trying to not rely so heavily on mountains of rice and pasta like I once did.

I can't say that this approach has been the best for me with regards to strength. But like you said, I am using it while cutting. My major lifts have been at a stall, but my minor lifts are increasing.

I tried a strict Paleo and didn't like it. I hate micromanaging everything I eat, so it wasn't so much a problem with the paleo in general. I also hate strict bodybuilding diets where every gram is counted.

So I guess my point is that when bulking, if strength generally comes at a premium for someone, I'm not sure if a low, low carb approach is the best way to go. I think i would rather see them zig-zag calories and use a weekly surplus average.
