You should watch your carbs, yes. Try not to exceed 1 g per lb of bodyweight each day for fat loss. Most important carb meals are breakfast and especially post workout. Make those meals the majority of your daily carb intake.

Limit carbs for sure at night. Take in extra fats if you must (good fats) but cut the carbs. When I'm leaning up I live on tuna, protein shakes and chicken. Not too tasty but the fat just melts off.

I limit my carbs to around 60grams when cutting. Usually allowing slightly more on weekends.

Those damn carbs, it seems like when you are cutting them out you crave everthing that is drenched with them. I just look foward to after workout meals, I usually take in a few then.

Most carbs in meal replacement shakes are high glycemic. I would get a regular protien shake and just put it in the blender with some oatmeal and a teaspoon of olive or canola oil, or flax seed oil. Yeah, cut the freakin carbs, espcially after 5:00pm. good luck

A great MRP is VPX Micellean. The carbs come from flax seed, oatmeal etc. Very low GI levels.

Up your cardio and always change it, your body gets aclimated to the stresses you put on it. Try a cycling class for a change, they're very intense and a lot of fun. I have the best results when I stay away from "white carbs": bread, rice, potatoes, pasta etc. Try filling up on green veggies and good proteins. Salmon is awesome........... mmmm I'm hungry now.
