Yeah, I just assumed I would retain more water after those carbs. I weighed myself at the same time, immediately upon waking.

32g Malt, 54g Dex and a few carbs from the whey (and 2 tspn BCAA, 1tspn Creatine and some sodium). On refeed day it was some extra dextrose for 32g Malt, 95g Dex.

ABC PWO calculator (from when I was 200lbs and around 180 lean mass - well I probably had less lean mass than that, but that was the number I used for the calculator) gave me:

1.7 litres water
44g protein
90g carbs

So my normal carbs were right inline with ABC's recommendation. I don't think I would decrease this even on a cut. I might decrease carbs at all other times of the day but para-workout seems like a great time to ingest a bunch of carbs.


Off Last Night

Mowed grass, weedwacked, my children and I organized their outdoor toys into throw away, give away and keep piles, then I organized my shed. It took forever. But it was worth it, my 5 year old was especially excited to clean off the toys we were giving away. He wants some other kids to enjoy them.
