    See the Seven Habits of Effective Nutrition in the FAQ sticky.

    I would suggest eating more often. Try not to eat carbs other than vegetables at any time except after workouts.

    Try that for starters and definitely read the FAQ's information.

    Yep. It's tough but the results are pretty astounding. You'll be pretty surprised at the number of fruits and vegetables you eat :D.

    There are times when I've eaten "other" carbs not PWO. If you do that just try and make then whole.

    Yeah, nuts have healthy fats. So does fish (i.e. fish oil), peanut butter, almond butter, olive oil etc.

    Eat those yolks man! :)
    Def stay away from carbs during morning and PWO. Take your fish oils (I take about 3.6g now). Drink plenty of water too. About a gallon, gallon+ a day.

    That's carbs. I drink milk in the morning even though that's carbs but that's one of my cheats.

    You definitely DO want carbs PWO.

    I agree with the water statement though. I drink over two gallons a day. I'm also a big guy.

    It's perfectly fine. Those carbs will be put to use. :)

    Personally, I only have carbs preWO, and PostWO. I've been getting results this way so far.
