    Question about Carbs with lifting and HIIT...

    Hey guys, this is my first post and I'm new to the site so here we go...

    Definitely looking to have more of a Fat-rich diet and not feel so awful when cutting weight, but at the same time, at the moment, I have no real desire to try a full on Keto diet.

    I'm 6'1 about 190 lb, always been involved in sports and am still competitive in big mountain skiing and recently got into men's physique, where I won my first show I entered back in June and now I'm starting to diet down for another show in November. I lift heavy 5 days a week, do 25 minutes of HIIT 3-4 times a week and another LISS sesh for about 40-50 minutes. I've been dieting between 2200-2300 cals daily 160-170g CHO (basically just enough to support brain function and workouts according to something Mark wrote) around 150-160g protein and about 100g fats.

    I'm just going off the fact the brain needs roughly 120g and around 40-50 extra carbs for high intensity lifting/cardio, leaving the rest of my basic energy cals as fats. So, my question is, is this type of macro breakdown for energy usage going to put me into a CKD? Furthermore, what do you think of the breakdown?

    Let me know what you guys think, cheers!

    It will be smart enough, if you let it.

    I think you are confused..


    Edit: guess I will elaborate. The only way to know would be testing on a daily basis for at least a couple weeks. You can buy kits to do so at home. Do so and answer your question.
