So far so good, it's only been a week right now.

I've been trying to follow the guidelines laid out here as best possible:

workout days - higher carb and moderate fats
non workout days - moderate carbs and higher fats

I try to workout by 1100 on most days and take my BCAA's ~1/2 hour preworkout. I'll take a postworkout protein shake right after my workouts and have a big lunch. Then I eat by feel until around 2000.

I know this won't be practical once I get home since I won't be working out at noon anymore but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
