What's everyone's go-to PWO carbs? I know Kiefer suggests non-processed high-glycemic carbs after the PWO shake.
Indian food ( big bowl of rice and curry)
Chicken and biscuits
Hitting the calorie goals might be difficult from any one choice of backloading carbs. These days I end up eating Cake or Ice cream for the last 500 calories or so.
I eat at about 6h30 Pm. One meal only, about 300 grams carbs and around 1700 calories. The increase in body temperature is giving really active brain signals, last night I had a dream, i was kinda like in a movie like the Gladiator!

ALL ABOUT GOING FROM A MIDGET TO A MONSTER!!!
How do people handle their backloads if they train at 5-6pm (after typical working day). In the book, he states to backload the night before morning training (i.e. off days are now days in which you don't train the next day), but what about training at night. Follow the same or shift it to post workout.
I get home from work at 6 and am usually in the gym by 7 until about 9. I start my load after that and finish by about 11. Usually i get 500-600 grams of carbs in, which seems to be working fine.
Going to bump this up.
I used backloading from feb 1st ish to about july i think and lost a fair amount of fat while maintaining size/strength gain. Went from 252 to a low of 225. Ive been playing around with eating breakfast again, skipping breakfast but eating carbs, eating whatever, and i have to say, i will probably go back to backloading. I read WAY to many articles on Lyle Arrogant-donald's site and on Marks daily apple about how its BS and all about calories in calories out. Well, trying that approach my weight has been slowly creaping up and i feel softer.
I agree with what others have said about watching the junk. Initially, i was a huge fan of pizza and donuts. I also lost weight while doing that but my weight loss plateaud quickly. I think the best bet is to have a nice big clean dinner after the PWO shake, and the last meal more of a treat. Maybe a bowl of ice cream with some pound cake or a couple glazed donuts and a glass of skim milk. I also noticed if i slacked off a bit throwing in a week of low carb only really sheds the fat, not just water.
Those paleo forums, while they provide great information, are REALLY set in there ways and brainwash the shit out of people.
2000 or bust
I've recently switched to backloading, not to loose any weight but more or maintaining my weight and elevating my hunger levels. I've been able to hold my weight pretty steady (204 - 208 at 5'6) so I am enjoying it and I'm really liking feeling hungry again after bulking for so long.
Whats everyones food choices throughout the day? I'm curious and looking for ideas. Right now for me its almonds, salad with lots of chicken, bunch of protein shakes with peanut butter.

Just wondering for guys on here that have tried backloading, have you ever tried eating berardi style. It sounds really similar except for i think berardi suggests eating more carbs through veggies and fruit.
Just started reading this book. I'm sure I will have some questions I'll post here. But so far a great book, and it just makes sense. Thinking I will start implementing it fully next spring, as this winter will be full on bulk, although tempted to use this protocol during bulk to avoid fat gain.
