Considering the liver stores about a pound of glycogen/water when repleted, I find it hard to believe you only gain 3lbs of glycogen/water weight after coming off low carb.
Well you should find it hard to believe, because that's not even what I said. I said 3 pounds between *MAINTENANCE* and higher carb. There is another 3 pounds between low carb and maintenance. Maintenance is sort of low carb, like 100 a day or so. But actual cutting type low carb is like anywhere from 20 to 50.
But still, that not that much of a difference considering the extreme difference in the diets. Your argument is really only valid in regards to bulking. However as we don't disagree on bulking there's little point in talking about it.
Try some whey and then try some casein, and just try and tell me those proteins are even remotely alike.
Try eating an equal amount of calories in lean chicken and fatty beef and just see which one is more filling.
I never said low-carb wasn't good, just saying this study doesn't state anything worthwhile :\
And this forum is PRO low-carb, so yes there's always a bias towards it on here.
That's because it works. There is actual evidence supporting it unlike other hypothesis that are based on junk science.
I also think people fail to realize that building significant amounts of muscle + doing high intensity activities requires carbs for optimal performance.
No, we don't. I have always said you need carbs for bulking.
I think it's you that fails to realize what constitutes a good diet, has everything to do with your goals at the time.
