Hello, I've been hearing LOTS of mixed views from a lot of sources on searches, and I wanted a clear answer from you guys.
Combining carbs and fats in the same meal is not advisable, as it releases insuling that triggers storage of fat and the stoppage of fat burning:
I've heard alot of people say its complete bull, but others go by it, who's right?
Thanks for the input!

It all comes down to caloric deficit, but some pro bodybuilders swear by this method, so I dunno.
try it out and see if it works for you, personally I don't really see any logic behind it... and would prefer balanced meals throughout.
somewhat what I eat...
It's documented in a book called The Gladiator Diet, written by an MD. The book promotes a balanced diet of 40/35/25 p/c/f to control a man's testosterone levels and make him as fit as a gladiator. The Roman gladiators were not mistreated slaves. Though they were slaves, they were very well cared for, fed and trained. They were the sports superstars of the day. It was in the owner's best interest that the gladiator survived his contests.Originally Posted by Zearoth
Anyhoo... she documents and cites how and why carbs and fat, without protein should not be consumed together. A bagel and cream cheese is bad, but a bagel, cream cheese and lox (salmon) is better. The glucagon released by the protein counteracts the insulin. Glucagon and insulin are antagonist hormones.

You should be eating everything, all the time.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

I don't think you'll be having to worry about fat storage for a very long time.

i was the same size as you Zearoth at your age. the last thing you need to worry about is what you eat. As long as you get food into your body. Now start eating your keyboard for those proteins!

"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

FWIW, there are reasons it works and reasons it doesn't. They seem to cancel each other out a bit. I really would not waste my time doing so, even though I'm slightly larger than 108.
