    Hey, well i'm not sure if I fully understand the concept of your question, but if you're powerlifting then you really don't care about what you eat so eat whatever you see or want. A good thing to keep in mind along with this is eat 1g/protein per lb to keep a good solid muscle base. And don't worry about your carb intake as long as your always full. That's how you get stronger.

    Question

    Need more details! Are you training for a contest? Are you training the old progressive routine with low weight/high reps building up to high weight/low reps? Are you training for powerlifting or bodybuilding?

    rephrase

    Sorry, I wasnt very clear.
    What i ment was, Do i need to keep up the same protien intakes(1.5g's/lb is what i do) i used in my building phase to make progress in my power phase.
    Im training for powerlifting over bodybuilding in this phase. Im trying to keep my weight gains to a minimum, or absolute zero if possible.
    Im training with very low reps right now, pyramiding 5-1

    If you eat the same way yoiu were in the bodybuilding phase and you wern't gaining any weight then , then just eat the same way as long as you keep you protien up like it is.
