Road to the Canadian Nationals 2019 - Carb Refeed Day

This Monday which is tomorrow as I type, I will begin my ultra low carb high protein diet that will consist of a lot of white fish, eggs, high fibre vegetables and a little bit of chicken. But this video isn't about tomorrow it's about today and what I will be eating which may seem a bit unconventional.

The main idea for today and a to some degree yesterday was to bring up my carbs for a kind of carb refeed for a few reasons. Reason number one is to see how my body reacts to the carbs, this will help me figure out how many carbs to add in when I do carb up for the GNC / ALLMAX Canadian National Pro Qualifier about 10 days from now.

Reason number two is to give my metabolism a little boast before I get into the really hard dieting and cutting, loading up on your carbs for a couple days can help jump start your metabolism especially if you have been under calorie for a while.

And reason number three, well just because carbs taste really good and getting some of my carb cravings out of my system again so I can focus on my rather strict diet over the next couple of weeks.

Join me as I show you what as day of carb refeeding looks like for me!
