Rusty Moore said your diet should change to reflect this if you want to continue to lose body fat at a steady rate. Things get even trickier, the leaner you get – Once you are within 5-10 pounds of your goal, you really have to watch how your body responds to your diet.
• Does your body hold on to fat when you eat low carb?
• Do too many carbs, cause spillover?
• Do carbs help you to train more intensely to burn off that last bit of fat?
• Do you feel better with frequent meals, or less meals to enhance muscles?
• Do you look a little leaner when you don’t eat before bed time?
• Are you not eating before bedtime and increasing your cortisol?
Ask yourself this question: “What is the most comfortable way to create on ongoing calorie deficit?” If you enjoy carbs, then obviously your diet plan should include carbs. I’ve seen people get super lean following both high carb and low carb diets. For me personally I get lean by mixing low calorie moderate fat days, with high carb low fat days. Once I get lean, I do best by increasing the fat a bit to ensure optimal hormone levels. More information is given at visual impact muscle building workouts.
A buddy of Rusty Moore drops fat like crazy by using really high fat days that are also pretty darn low in calories. Some of the days during the week, he simply eats one big rack of ribs. He likes to go higher in fat, because he says it helps keep him satisfied and he can keep those high fat days super low calorie without starving.
