For short periods of time when maximum fat loss is desired, the baseline ratio of 50-55% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 15-20% fat can be shifted to a higher ratio of protein/fat and a lower ratio of carbohydrates. This increases metabolism through the thermic effect of food and it also controls insulin more effectively.
The reduction in carbohydrates is most easily achieved by reducing your intake of concentrated, starchy carbohydrates (such as pasta, bread, rice, potatoes, etc.) at night and late in the day and replacing them with less calorie-dense fibrous carbohydrates (such as green vegetables and salads) using the calorie tapering method you learned in Chapter six.
