yeah i'm eating quite a bit of starch everyday ... i guess cutting it out would mean going for oatmeal as much as possible as a carb source (and may be brown rice too) ... correct me if i'm wrong
By non-starchy carbs I meant vegetables and fruit - any fibrous veggies or fruits, especially. Brown rice and oatmeal are starches. So if you're finding you're getting a bit of fat gain above and beyond what you can tolerate, I'd just swap out some or all of the brown rice and oatmeal with veggies, and eat the rice and oats soon after you lift.
I'm just throwing out suggestions. I'm a diet novice at best. But I've had cutting non-vegetable and non-fruit carbs to a minimum work well for fat loss for me. And limiting my starches to post-workout seems to be working better for me when I gain weight, too. Like, right now. I stole that from John Berardi's PN introductory materials. We'll see if I still feel the same way after a month or two of this approach.
also thanks for the blog link ... i'll understand it's not for a beginner like me so i'll follow it with a grain of salt ....
As long as you can show up and add weight to the bar week after week, don't complicate it. Once you need to complicate stuff, you'll wish you could just add weight to the bar every time. :)
