I have come to the conclusion that I don't really like what carbs do to my appetite but I love what they do to my body and energy levels. Even though I so look forward to carb up day, I spend the day hungry and unsatisfied. All I wanted for dinner last night was meat and baked veggies because I didn't feel like I had eaten properly all day.

This morning I have renewed energy, no real scale spike and really enjoyed my eggwhite, cottage cheese and crunch pancakes. Maybe I won't eat so many carbs next time, or I will have just have a carbs for breakfast post workout and then for dinner so I sleep away the hunger.


  1. Lookin' good girlfriend!

    Bet you smashed your training with all those carbs in your muscles.

    Just wondering if you can carb up on kilos of veges rather than starchy's?

  2. I certainly haven't found the right balance yet, but I'm doing carbs for breaky post training (oats) and then adding some to my snacks in the form of fruit, yogurt with a sprinkle of muesli or something similar. Keeping lunch and dinner the same as normal. Not sure if physically that is the best way to do it, but it is easier for me mentally. Carbs at night just make me want to keep eating, and keep eating, and keep eating.

  3. What sort of carbs are you eating? Could you go for something more fibrous and slower digesting to keep you fuller for longer? Eg legumes, lentils, sweet potato, steel-cut oats.
