The Curious Effects of a Binge

I am beginning to suspect that my body is at the point where it really needs a decent re-feed once a week. After eating over 4,000 calories of good and crappy food on Sunday, I have still leaned up over the past 4 days. The abundance of food on the weekend made dieting this week so much easier and I have even lost some weight [another lowest weight ever].

So I am going to shake things up and change my calories/carbs and training around to a 7 day schedule. The calories work out the same ~ 1400/2000 3:1 days [#1550 average] but I am doing 4 very low days, 1 high day and 2 moderate. The training is tailored to my energy levels because I am finding it very hard to keep up with NROL4W with no fuel in the tank [which is exactly what the book says]. My updated strategy is based on Lyle McDonald's Ultimate Diet 2.0.

1300 calories ~ 65g carbs ~ depletion training (high reps/light weight)

1300 calories ~ 65g carbs ~ low intensity cardio (or optional rest on one day)

2600 calories ~ 400g carbs ~ tension training (moderate reps/weight)

1600 calories ~ 150g carbs ~ power training (low reps/heavy weight)

1450 calories ~ 100g carbs ~ rest + optional low intensity cardio in the afternoon
