    It looked like a lot of carbs buddy
    A lot... lol

    Can't remember was ages ago
    I'd like to say I used brown rice and sweet potatoes lol but to get that volume of carbs in I just treated a carb as a carb...
    Thinking back typically I'd use
    Lots of cereal, rice, dextrose, malto, oats, raisins, fruit juice, yogurts...
    Was prob more stuff but not 100%

    Just stuff that's easy to get in.

    I'd do it slightly diff now
    I'd use c-dextrin, lots of cereal, fruit juice all around training (mainly post)... Try to get as many carbs as poss at this time and then ease off as the day goes.

    Nothing worse then ramming food in all day...
    I'd rather really ram it in when needed and back off.
    I'd also use loads of digestive enzymes where as last time I didn't use any.
    I'd also make my pro sources easy to digest where as last time I didn't...

    Obviously other things would be in place to make the most of this phase.

    Think training frequency was quite high
    Volume moderate

    Was ages ago so I'm really not 100%

    I think it was in my 2013 off season
    2012 also run at finals
    2013 off season
    2014 Brit champ
    So must have helped a bit lol

    Thing is
    When carbs are that high
    I dnt think it matters too much where they come from
    I just avoided fats
    So low fat carb source that is easy digested and passed through... It would make the list

    sounds fucking brutal tbh.. to get that much carbs in id need a fuck load of shakes with carb powders to get them all in. fuck that for any length of time lol. 100g malto is a fucking nightmare to shake up..goes like heavy spunk, I reckon i'd manage 4 tops with that in it. leave me 600g to spend in KFC

    How many meals did you have to get the 1000g?
    I used to do this kind of thing for a single day (the old refeed :D )
    Once hit 2000g, and I was eating full boxes of Frosties (about 400g for a 500g box - and I ate them dry as I thought any fluid might bloat my stomach)
    {I'll see if I can find a copy over on MC and post it in, be good for a giggle! :) }

    Jay Cutler hit 1000g a day by eating 10x a day! Although, from his DVD's he'd pack 300g post workout.

    I was one of those fat b**tards for years and you're right.. its not that I couldn't handle carbs, its that its easier to overeat when carbs are high.

    It's also easier to blame carbs than yourself too!

    After 9 months of eating in a deficit, what I consider a lot now has reduced massively to what it used to be... funny how that works huh.

    exactly....usually the fat asses who dont train hard who dont do well with carbs

    then you train legs with them, theyve done one set of squats and theyre fucked and have to quit the session :lol:

    Thing is as @Jim says the key is picking the carb sources. For example i train at 5pm.

    M1 3 slices fruit bread plus eggs. 45carbs

    M2 cup jasmine rice 60g

    M3 - same

    M4 same

    Intra 60g carbs
    Pwo 50g dolly mixture thats 110g total

    Pwo meal 1.5cups rice plus pitta bread n can fizzy pop. That's 130-150 there. It's now 7pm. Workout total 250

    Pre bed - protein pancakes with jam. Abother 75.
    That's 550 there and a relaxed day of eating.

    Want to add another 250. Just go large glass orange juice meal 1
    1.5 cups rice meals 2/3/4
    Plus few raisins or pineapple
    100g intra
    75g sweets or half loaf soreen.

    We're still at 750 here n stomach should be fine. Could easy add in more fruit juice pwo plus more fruit toast n be at close to 900.

    It's actually quite easy
    It's just over time if you pick the wrong carbs you feel fucking awful
    I learnt pretty quick that cereal was my best friend pre and pw
    Good old coco pops and honey nut cornflakes...
    For dense cal cereal Jordans country crisp!
    100g is like 7-800 cal lol
    IIFYM bitch lol

    I'm going daft on tren and carbs in the New Years.

    Fats can fall wherever but I'll not be eating them as a sole source.

    1g tren and carbs to death......

    Bet I finish leaner than I start and a good few lb heavier.
