I eat 'three square meals a day' - breakfast, lunch, dinner, which are pretty good and balance (like 40/40/20% carbs/protein/fat%). I also usually eat three snacks (one in between breakfast and lunch and one before bed). The one before bed is higher fat usually.
I'm planning on making my in between meal snacks JUST protein, 50g of whey protein each time cause I am preparing to cut about 3-5 pounds of fat off my body (which means about 3 weeks of cutting bleh). Also want to increase sensitivity to insulin. When I workout I will make one of these snacks my postworkout shake (which means it will have carbs of course around 50g). But on off days it will just be 50g protein.
my question: Will it be OK to take in this snack with just protein? Will my body be able to use it if there are no carbohydrates along with it? I'm hoping this will increase sensitivity to insulin but I don't want to be feeding my body if it is just useless (can't get to muscles).
so it'd look something like this for the percentages:
