Default Carb Back Loading

I've listened to Robb and Greg's podcasts and I have read the book on CBL. Anyone doing CBL? Recommendations? Thanks.

There's a long running thread on combining Paleo and CBL over on the CrossFit forum - link. Obviously being CrossFit there's much stupidity in evidence, i.e. carb loading with high fat foods, but you might find some useful info in there if you have the patience to wade through all the bullsh*t.

I'm doing CBL, and have done it a few times before for months whenever I've wanted to lose fat.

My schedule is:
1. Wake up. Drink coffee and wait 2-3 hours.
2. Eat no carb meal: eggs, sausage, almonds if I want
3. Go train an hour or two later.
4. Wait a few hours.
5. Eat another no carb meal: meat (steak, chicken, brats), spinach/broccoli, almonds
6. Wait a few hours
7. Carb destruction: high glycemic carbs and whatever. Cookies, ice cream, whatever.

So I only eat 3 times per day, which there's probably a contraindication about that somewhere, but I don't care. It's working. The whole idea is going no carb for 23.5 hours per day, then in that 20-30 minute window, slamming the shit out of high glycemic carbs. I eat about 200-220g of sugar/starch in that 20 minutes. Again, I haven't read the articles in a long time, I've just kind of patched together CBL info from a few guys that are doing it.

In the past five weeks I have gone from 22-23%bf at 265 to 15% at 245

1 meal, 6 meals, 3 meals

It doesn't make a difference, that's just another garbage fallacy made by the fitness industry..

Regarding your plan, anything will work so long as you have the right total calories and balance of protein carbs and fat, to work with your goal..
