I've recently been trying to accumulate as much info on Carb Back-Loading as possible in an effort to gain lean mass and strength. Unfortunately due to monetary circumstances I cannot purchase the ebook, and to be honest the price seems outrageous, books like Nourishing Traditions/Good Calories, Bad Calories are much less expensive, and extremely long/informative. But I've literally been reading every article from Keifer's very first article, copying them to a word document, and highlighting the important info and nutritional/physiological vocab, as well as looking at the cited studies to see if they were misrepresented.
Ok, that was a lot, let's get to the point. I wanted to take a quick look at the forums to get some templates, then I come across people talking about not only choosing between Carb Nite or Carb Back Loading, but Density Bulking and Strength Accumulation and even Carb Backloading 2.0..... just when I thought I understood the premises of CBL in depth enough to start it this week, now I feel lost again.
Can anyone give insight on this please? I feel like Density Bulking is incorporating "mini" backloads on rest days, but i'm not quite sure. Also, I would like to continue fasting for the health benefits, and I haven't listened to Keifer's podcast on that topic, but his templates of diet seem to only go about 12hrs max no food. Could I bump that up to 14 or so then break it with fat+protein?
Thanks for any input as well as the many responses I've received previously.
