Carb Cycling

I know most you guys want to build more leaner and muscular physique. But not everyone’s got time to invest in counting calories and the discipline to stick to a diet plan.

Most people don’t want to spend their free time counting macronutrient (Carbs, Fat, Protein, etc…).

Then why not try “Carb Cycling”. The easy to follow plan that would help you get leaner look.

carb cycling is nothing more than eating more carbohydrates on some days (High Carb days) to help promote muscle growth, and eating less carbohydrates on other days (Low Carb days) to help minimize fat gain and even promote fat loss. The focus is on carbohydrates – rather than protein or fats. This is because carbs seem to have the most influential effect on body composition and how you look.

High Carb days:
Stimulate an insulin response that shuttles nutrients in your muscle cells, causing them to grow,
-Replenish glycogen stores that fuel your muscles, and
-Makes you feel good and energized.

Low carb days:
Promote fat loss by “tricking” your body into burning fat for fuel (instead of the sugar from the carbs it would normally get),
-Keep your body more receptive to insulin, improving your body’s muscle-building response.

The rules for carb cycling are very simple.
Rule 1. On weight lifting days, eating starchy carbs along with protein, vegetables, and healthy fats is recommended.
Rule 2. On off days or interval/cardio days, avoiding starchy carbs, but consuming protein, vegetables, and healthy fats is recommended.
That’s it. There’s no need to measure how many grams of carb or count calories. If you can add and subtract, then they can do carb cycling.

Everyone what’s bad carbs and good carbs but I will remind you anyway.

-Healthy Carbs:
-Sweet or white potato
-Oats
-Quinoa
-Whole wheat pasta
-Tortillas
-Fruit (especially berries)
-Rice
-Whole grain bread

There’s your good carbs there. If it’s not there then it’s not good for you really.

I know you might feel really hungry on low carb days but the best way get over it is fill up more on high protein food and vegetable on your meals.

So why not give it a go. Any questions I will be glad to help
