    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:
    70 Fat
    300 Carb
    300g Protein

    Low Carb Days:
    100 Fat
    150 Carb
    300 Protein

    No Carb:
    180 Fat
    50 Carb
    300 Protein

    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:

    Monday
    High Carb
    Chest/Tri
    HIIT

    Tuesday
    Low Carb
    Back/Bi
    Slow Cardio

    Wed
    No Carb
    OFF

    Thurs
    Low Carb
    Shoulders
    Slow Cardio

    Friday
    High Carb
    Legs
    HIIT

    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.

    Thanks! Actually means alot I did quite some bit of research before compiling it. If you don't mind me asking why do you recommend switching to what you posted? Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to understand. thanks!

    In guessing he says that because you want your high carb days on heavy work days and no carb on less or no lifting days. More energy for the lifts and it'll get used properly. And you want to follow a no carb day w a high one, as that's the cycling part that really kicks your body in gear.

    well said


    for carb cycling to be effective, your body must believe that it is running out of carbs..

    if you go 100g, 200g, 300g.. then your body is getting more carbs.. but if you go 300, 200, 100.. your body feels like its going to run out...

    that's why you always start to decrease carbs after a high day.. not the other way around
