Hey guys, so after a long time of dealing with trying to get in better shape, and following the guides for what to eat, I had someone else follow along with me and see what I was doing. A friend is a trainer and nutritionist and helped me out. I kept track of lean body mass and fat percentage, and doing the standard 40/40/20 or anywhere NEAR that many carbs was causing me to add way too much fat. I was adding muscle, but at the rate I was going I'd be 30% BF before I reached any goal. I always read that carbs are workout fuel, but my body seems to think its just free fat lol Anyone else have this "problem"? I've lowered the carbs drastically (not looking for keto) and things seem ok so far. Any experience?
