Anonymous said: Hey man how's it's going? I've been following your blog for a while and I wanted to ask you how do you avoid carbs? Because I'm a vegetarian not a vegan and carbs are usually my weak spot. Anyways thanks!

the-vegan-shreddernaut:

I don’t avoid carbs at all. Right now, 60% of my caloric intake comes from carbs, and I’ve been shedding a pound of fat a week. According to the Institute of Medicine, 45-65% of your caloric intake should come from carbs. They are the perfect energy source and can be more important for muscle gain than protein in certain regards.

I tried going low carb. My mood plummeted, I was constantly irritable, my lifts declined, my appetite was greater, my intensity lesser, and I got fatter. Since upping my carbs, I shed bodyfat, was able to workout for much longer with a higher intensity and more weight, and generally felt happier.

You see, glucose (blood sugar) is what fuels muscle. Glucose is pulled from your glycogen stores, which are filled by carbohydrate intake. While your body can fill it with fat or protein, it cannot do this efficiently in the manner that carbohydrates can. So, without carbs, you’ll have less energy to rip shit up.

In addition to the whole glycogen thing, your body constantly craves carbs. If you don’t fulfill that craving, you may end up overeating fats and proteins, like I did. Carbs also support a good mood and healthy brain function. Most carb sources are rich in fiber too, which helps with satiety and heart health.

Be sure that you’re getting the right carbs however. This means limiting added sugars and processed foods. Instead, have whole fresh fruit, veggies, legumes and whole grains. Avoid things like white bread and other sources of refined wheat, sugary beverages like sodas and juice drinks, and candy. Have some brown or wild rice, quinoa, beans, fruits, whole wheat bread, zucchini, and the like in lieu of those nutritional deserts.

What makes people fat is an excess of overall calories, not specific macronutrients. The recommended macronutrient ranges, however, are 20-35% calories from fat, 10-30% protein, and 45-65% carbs.

Keeping this for future reference.

This is exactly the reason why I’m now more determined to get fitter than ever

I really struggled at bootcamp last night and I’m so annoyed with myself. Didn’t eat well nutritionally yesterday due to being in the car most of the day and it cost me last night.

No energy, felt sick and generally just not up for exercise.

Still, new day and back to routine so going to smash Wednesdays bootcamp!

Really enjoyed my session in the gym yesterday. After slightly hurting my back last week with the squats I reduced my weighs right down and focused on technique. “Ass to the grass” as they say.

Even with the reduced weight in feeling it this morning so I think I’ll continue to work on my form for a few more weeks before trying to increase the weight again.
