Well carb cycling is when you intake high carbs for three days followed by low carb intake for another three days and for the last day you have is as a cheat day, that makes your metabolism speed up and keeps you from storing any fat at all, it basically makes your body into a fat burning machine, look it up in YouTube they explain it more thoroughly.

Well how about if you add a day or two of high carb days preferably before your leg day will that count as carb cycling planning on starting that

Just finished researching it. I think it's worth trying it out! I'm going to start tomorrow. Hopefully i'll finally see some results for these last few pounds I've got to lose.

Well raja it wouldn't be as effective because there's a science method on doing it you have to do three day high carbs followed by three day low carb and cheat day, or it would not trigger your metabolism and boost your fat burning capacity. If you check it out you see exactly what I'm talking about

What kind of carbs are you eating while carb cycling? Keep me updated this is something I'll probably try before summer.

I've been looking into trying it out too, found this cool website a while ago http://scoobysworkshop.com/advanced-fat-loss-carb-cycling/ it calculates how much and what to eat on a carb cycling eating plan based on weight, height, age, activity level etc... The meal plan is quite boring but I guess you can tweak it a bit to your own taste..

I am actually on a gain diet but would like to loose the fat along the way if it's possible any pointers on the carb cycling would be helpful the ones you get from the book and should I do it considering I am looking to gain lean mass
