If you're doing anything glycolitic (insanity counts), you're going to need carbs, especially post-workout. Here's a better article on it than I could write myself: http://talktomejohnnie.com/diet/earn-your-carbs

Carb cycling works for me, I'm the leanest I've ever been (around 6% with 3-fold method), and I don't do Insanity... That's just crazy! Haha... What works for me is a moderate amount of HIIT mixed with heavy lifts, and eat carbs PWO as needed like miked mentions.
