Ok-so bad carbs -out-
Good thing I finished off the variety box of cookies tonight, that would have sucked to have around all day tomorrow with the no carb challenge.
Not all carbs are bad though....this is from the fitness site my trainer got me into. Keep this in mind when you're cutting out carbs.
"Fat burns in a carbohydrate flame," or maximal fat utilization for energy cannot occur without sufficient carbohydrate to continue Kreb's Cycle activity (energy/fat-burning cycle).
In summary, try not to dip below 40% of your total calories being made up of carbohydrates, and remember that eating fewer calories leads to fat/weight loss. If you feel better with less then the recommended amounts of carbohydrate in your diet (40-60% of primarily "good carbs" such as grains, fruits and vegetables), and it is not affecting your overall energy levels including exercise intensity or duration, by all means do what works for you. To lose weight you simply need to eat less calories than you burn but remember it takes plenty of carbohydrates at each meal to maximize exercise induced muscle gains and your goal, as stated, is muscle gain so don't cheat yourself."
This is from apex.com btw
Good luck everybody-I'm sure we'll have some great results tomorrow!

I'm really big on whole grains. I don't think all carbs are bad and they are definitely part of my diet yet mostly in a good way!
