What Everyone Needs To Know About Carb Depletion And Loading So You Can Look Your Best In Just One Week

I’m not a nutritionist, or dietician, but I do a fair bit of research on nutrition, simply because it is directly related to strength and conditioning, and in my studies have found an effective way to go about getting yourself into your best ever condition in one week, given that your bodyfat percentage is where you’d ideally like it to be. If your bodyfat is too high then no diet in the world will get you into your best ever shape in one week. In my article on basic nutrition I laid out some general guidelines to follow to achieve your ideal body. The basic guidelines were as such.
1.5 – 2 grams of PROTEIN/lb per day
1.5 – 2.5 grams of CARBS/lb per day to gain weight
0.5 – 1 gram of CARBS/lb per day to lose weight
0.4 – 0.8 grams of FAT/lb per day
