Any thoughts on whether I should adjust my training? I can't seem to make much progress while adjusting, but I'm guessing the Starting Strength 5lb-deal should be left more or less unchanged? Maybe 3x3?
Don't be too sensitive. I didn't call you retarded. I just said that the notion that, thankfully seems to be dying out, insulin is all-evil is retarded.
Excess carbs really screw with your health when coupled with a host of other factors. I'm guessing this isn't what you started this thread about though.
Adjust your training as needed. I'm not a huge fan of the Anabolic Diet any longer, but do think that 2/1, or 3/1 CKD approaches are kinda cool.
I think you're on the right track in manipulating volume towards something like 3x3. Look into things like Body Opus, the updated UD 2.0 etc. for more information on training recommendations and the like.
