View Full Version : seperating fat from carbs

On t-mag they promote not eating carbs and fat in the same meal

I tend to get some EFAs in each meal, but i wondered if the rest of you thought there was any merit in seperating carbs from fat

for example they would have a protein and fat meal, then a protein and carbs meal, but not mix the two.

some say there is some say there isnt any point to it, Im leaning towards the latter one. If you wanna read up on it check out johnberardi.com ... i believe he is the one who adovcates the whole not eating carbs with fat ordeal.

Larrian Gillespie MD, in The Gladiator Diet (www.gladiatordiet.com) also advocates not consuming carbs and fats together without some protein.

In my entirely anecdotal opinion, it sounds like one of those many things you could do but are just not worth the effort.

Maybe you'll see a difference after 5 years. Just eat your meals and be happy.

If you tried to follow every little friggin' rule about "eating this at this time with that, but not without this, but only if you've already done that, which of course you can't do afer 4 p.m. on cloudy days" you'd go friggin' nuts.

Just eat good stuff and good stuff will happen.
