I'm by no means an expert on dieting, but i was thinking, if one's goal would be to lean out, but still grow as much as possible, how about the following:
lower your carb intake on training days, and eat relatively more protein (but eat a below calorie maintaince levels), and then straight after training up your carbs intake (to what you normally would eat) till your next training day in order to fill glygocen storage and make room for growth.
Perhaps it's kind of tricky, but wouldn't it be better than several consecutive days on low carbs, which would deplete your glycogen storage (if you continue working out) and hinder growth.
With a program like HST, were there's always a day of rest in between training days, this would work well.
But maybe it's just rubbish..
Keeb and I talked about using the carb-load idea, or frontloading the carbs into that part. Maybe protein cycling can work in this context too.
But, from my experience, the best way to prtoect what you earned is to eat many, many small meals. Like Andre.
