I get asked this question all the time and it's one of the biggest misconceptions on the planet!
I NEVER cut my carbs; in fact they are mandatory in any of my nutritional plans. Carbs are not the devil and if you use them correctly the results you get are second to none.
I use a combination of simple and complex carbs throughout my competition diet and always get lean naturally without the use of thermo genic type products.
If you understand how to manipulate your macronutrients and provide the body with the nutrients when it needs them the most you will not only manage to get lean but you will stay lean all year round. That’s where my 7 Rules come in; they keep me lean and loving life all year round.
