What are the Different Methods for Carb Cycling? Part three of the five part series.
One of the great things about getting in shape, is that there is more than one way to get
it done. The body works in a variety of marvelous ways that allow you to reach your
health goals, and feel healthier than the way you felt before you started your new way of
life. If you’re reading this article, you have been interested in carb cycling, but does it
really have that many ways to do it? If you continue reading, you will find that this article
contains an exploration of a few varied methods of carb cycling.
For this cycle, the requirements aren’t too restrictive. It asks that you have a balanced
breakfast that includes all of the different food groups to start your day. This system
allows for you to have fun meals on high carb days. You will typically alternate your carb
days by having a low carb day on day 1, day 2 will be a high carb day with your fun
meal. Day 3 will be a low carb day. Day 4: high carb day with your fun meal. Day 5 is
another low carb day. Day 6 will be a high carb day with your fun meal. Your last day –
day 7 will be a high carb day with your fun meal.
In this cycle, the requirements are only slightly more restrictive in that they don’t have
fun meal days on every high carb day. In this cycle, there is only one day with a fun
meal time. All of your breakfast meals should be well balanced. Day 1 will be a low carb
day. Day 2 will be a high carb day. Day 3 will be a low carb day. Day 4 is a high carb
day. Day 5 is a low carb day. Day 6 is a high carb day. Day 7 is your fun meal day.
The only real difference between this cycle and the last is that this one contains more
low carb days., Breakfast will remain the same as the previous breakfast arrangements.
Day 1 will be a low carb day. Day 2 will be a low carb day. Day 3 will be a high carb day.
Day 4 is a low carb day. Day 5 is a low carb day. Day 6 is a high carb day. Day 7 is your
fun meal day.
Different Methods for Carb Cycling require self adjustment. I actually take this a little further by making days 1 thru 5 all low carb days, day 6 is a medium carb day. On that day I go from 20 carbs a day to 35 carbs a day and on day 7 I do a high carb day. For me that is still only 50 carbs as I do not want to go out of ketoses or if I should, I would be close enough that I could jump right back in on the next day. I will share a little more in our next article, which is Tips for starting Carb Cycling.
