Carb Cycling, how does this look?
I want to give Carb Cycling a try, this is for a cut. I ran this last week and dropped 2 lbs it looks like and that is right around where I want to be in terms of fatloss per week.
TDEE: Around 3500.
240lbs at 18% BF
3000 Calories per day
High Carb Days:
Low Carb Days:
I'm doing the harder workouts (chest/squat/HIIT) on high carb days. I hit shoulder/back on low carb along with slow state cardio. I realize the numbers don't add exactly to 3000calories per day. I like to leave a little leeway for extra fat/protein on the low/no days and for maybe more carbs on the high day. So far I think it's working but I'd like to get some feedback with what other folks think. I have good energy on the workout days and that is a good sign I think.A sample of my week is below:
Saturday & Sunday. One is a Low Carb and one is a no carb depending on what my weekend plans are. Last week I did Saturday as none and Sunday as low. Any advice is welcome, it's my first try at doing some carb cycling.
