You are dead on man, diet is key. Most people really dont know how many cals they consume in an avg day or tend to underestimate in my observations
But I don't know I think carbs get knocked because they tend to hold water weight, and that's true but its temporary. Water weight =/= fat gain, although it might look like it and because it looks like it we assume carbs make us "fat"
at the end of the day its Calories in vs Calories out.
Your body will spend more energy digesting certain foods but at the end of the day its that simple equation.

does daily lifting + cardio get you faster results than doing just heavy lifting or just cardio?
Yes I would say so because your going to expend energy lifting and then again while doing cardio. Reap the hormonal benefits of lifting then get your heart rate up with some cardio
Also regarding leangains, fasting isn't for everyone but its also a way to see how much broscience is out there and that you don't need to eat every 2 hours to 'stoke' your metabolism, or eat protein every 2 hours to maintain your muscle mass. You can lift on an empty stomach and still record PR's. Your body is very efficient at using fat as a fuel source, that's why its 9 cals a gram or whatever, its meant for energy. Your body will use fat/carbs over muscle because its not very efficient for the body to begin breaking muscles/proteins down to convert into energy.Edited by 40inchBoost - 7/20/12 at 3:11pm
