The reasons for having high carb days are to:

  • Provide your body with adequate energy
  • Replenish glycogen post-workout
  • Stimulate an insulin response to get nutrients to your muscles
  • improve insulin sensitivity
  • increase fat burning
  • increase muscle gains
  • achieve muscle balance

Meanwhile, medium and low carb days are used to:

  • Encourage fat loss by using fat calories as fuel
  • Make your body more receptive to insulin
  • In turn, insulin receptivity promotes a muscle building response

So, for the Wolverine Diet(6 meals a day):

  • Eat high carbs (sweet potatoes, brown rice, oatmeal) along with protein on heavy weight days.
  • Cycle carbs the next day by eating sweet potatoes, brown rice, oatmeal, but only until 4pm.
  • Focus more on healthy fats (almonds, seeds, avocados) on days where you’re doing low-intensity cardio (Wednesday and Sunday, if you follow The Wolverine Workout to the tee).
  • Not the fun calories. Chicken, fish, maybe steak, always protein six times a day. Protein, steamed vegetables, and occasionally some brown rice.
