Sorry guys. I am trying to morph my diet because I'm stuck and have been stuck at 205-206.5 for a long time now, and I realize I abuse the crap out of carbs. Help me out here, when can I eat them during the day? Breakfast and Postworkout? Thats what everyone seems to say, but I'm a bit confused. And I don't eat bad carbs, usually whole wheats, but I eat alot of them to compensate and fill my stomach. I'm trying to change my diet to try to move my metabolism a bit and see if I can cut a few more pounds off. Thanks guys.

Abusing carbs, even "good carbs" might be the problem. I know I burn a lot more fat on a low-carb diet, and gain more fat on a high-carb diet. Doesn't seem to matter too much what the carbs are to my body.

Even though I'm trying to bulk, I do low carb 5 days a week and high carb 2 days a week, eating high carb generally on my workout days. I still use a low-carb protein powder post-workout, I just stick a frozen banana and yogurt into the shake, eat an apple, maybe have some pasta and chicken breast or fish and some veggies an hour later.

But really, it depends on your overall diet. If you want that gut to go away first and foremost, you might do better on a low-carb cutting diet. I asked about one and it's been stuck under the "Good Enough to Keep" sub-forum. Basically Ironman told me to stick to 2800 calories and 20-60 carbs (the lower the better) per day for an 83kg guy. That worked fine for me.

Many grains (including rice, potatoes, corn) are very high calorie. You can eat a lot of calories of these before you feel full. On the other hand, most vegetables are very low calories for the same volume and therefore fill you up before you get in too many calories. Whole grains are better than refined grains but are still high in calories. This makes it easier to control your body fat on a high vegetable diet vs a high grain diet. It's also more nutritious.

Well the scale has moved, it says I've lost 2 pounds so far, we'll see how this goes. I wasn't overeating in cals, 2800-3000cals a day. It was just alot of carbs. I'm going to keep with the thing of carbs for breakfast "raisin bran for fiber" and post workout so I don't kill my muscles. Rest is going to be protein/fats.
