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.
