The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Carb cycle questions

    I've been dieting all summer, and carb cycling the last 3+ weeks.

    I've been following somewhat of a High carb/low carb/no carb template but I'm wondering if I should tweak a few things to get the most out of it. I was doing 2 refeeds a week on the high carb days, although one day wasn't really a true refeed, just higher than normal carbs to get me through to my true refeed on saturday.

    The low carb days are pretty low, usually under 100 g carbs and on the no carb days I literally take in less than 20 g carbs.

    I'm about 12% bf right now. I've read the lower you get the more often you should refeed. Should I up my carbs on my wednesday "high carb day?" Even though it's high carbs I still probably only take in 300 - 400 grams.

    I do very well on low carbs, no problems with energy, etc. I actually hate eating carbs, they fill me up really fast. Can I push things a little more and do pretty much 4 - 5 no carb days a week with 2 refeeds?

    I guess my main problem is, I hate refeeds/eating carbs in general because mentally it feels like I'm slowing my cut progress. If I could eat no carbs everyday of the week and get away with it I would. I know that's def. a terrible idea, but I'd like to know what the limits are.

    Have you checked out the TNT diet on Men's Health? Sounds like it would be a good match for you.
