    Are Carbs good for getting bigger and lifting more???

    OK, I read somewhere that some bodybuilders take in more carbs than protein on daily lifting days. That their diets are based mainly of; 1. Carbs, 2. Protein, 3. Fat.

    I'm not trying to be a bodybuilder, but I am trying to get bigger and alot stronger, also to gain weight, so should I eat just as many carbs as protein but still take in a high amount of protein???

    another reason is that I ate 2 boxes of cookies over the weekend, and now I fee guilty because I won't be able to go to the gym until tommorrow.

    Bodybuilding as in cutting up and trying to look a certain way. I'm lifting for strength speed, and size. Powerlifters get bigger, stronger, and gain weight but they are definitely not bodybuilders.


    Thanks for the response though
