When you embark on a carb-cycling regime, you can reduce body fat while increasing muscle mass. It’s an extremely rigorous diet so it should only be used in the short-term. However, it is useful for breaking through weight-loss plateaus.
Carb cycling relies on increasing and decreasing carbohydrate intake on different days of the week. There are high-carb days and low-carb days as well as days on which no carbs are eaten at all. When you try carb cycling, you can eat carbohydrates if they’re from a clean source. Cycling allows the body to use fat more effectively as a fuel instead of burning muscle tissue and carbs.
In this book, we’ll take a closer look at what carb cycling is all about. We’ll look at how you can get started and how to determine whether it’s right for you. This will allow you to make a well-informed decision.
