normally i take in a ton of carbs...im bulking on 5-6000kcals a day and countless carbs. what would happen if i dropped my carbs to only 1 cup or oats a day? also im going to add in a 30 minute moderate paced walk after each workoutm, ive never done cardio..
how do you guys think my body will react? im 255 right now with about 16% bf?

I'm thinking your body would react by feeling sluggish because you will have almost no carbs.
Why are you doing this?
Will you still be eating roughly 5-6k cals a day, just mostly from fat and protein now?

well im a little bit fatter than id like...and i wanna keep adding lbm but not so much fat. total kcals im using will drop drastically

It doesnt make sense to do this. why not just do a proper cut or keep as you are doing. if you think you are gaining to much fat then drop the cals backa bit. theirs no need in dropping carbs drastically but not knowing what your doing its just going to mess up your lifts and weight

Just lower your carbs on non work out days.

That simple.

alright ill just do that then...im just so mixed up right now cuz ive never had to cut before cuz ive alway been real skinny. 16% bf is alittle higher than id like. i can handle 14 and thats what i woule like to get down to but oh well ill just keep buliking and start a 30-45 minute moderate walk after my lifts

Lower your carbs slowly...count them on a regular day then start decreasing them 50 grams at a time add some cardio if you're not doing any. At 255 I wouldnt go under 200 ...also add some good fats like natural peanut butter...and cashews to your diet.
