you're only gonna eat carbs in one meal of the day?

have you ever read the article about separating carbs and fat?

Oh jeez that was one of my questions. Thanks for reminding me haha. Yeah I was going to ask if i should add more carbs to this diet? But which meals should I add more to?

i'd usually suggest post training, but what kind of diet are you actually doing?

Well I don't know exactly. This is all new to me. I was told that a diet similar to this would be good 8 weeks prior to a show. But this is just one of many diets I could do. I've never done a cutting diet yet, so I can't really say what would work best for me just yet. I really just need help figuring out what type of diet I can do. But any way you can change this one around would be cool too.

I'm 6'4" 230-235. I'm guessing I could cut down to around 215... not sure though.
