Carb Cycling - one of the most promising fat loss concepts. Doing carb cycling you can get the rapid fat loss of a low-carb diet and also drop to a veery low level of body fat without burning muscle, or any of the other withdraws that come with a low-carb diet.
Carb cycling, as good as it sounds, it is definitely not for everyone. If you want to take it up, I suggest you should be over 18 years old, in a perfect health state and under 10% bodyfat (defined 6 pack). If you are a competing bodybuilder.
Carb cycling is seriously, only for competing bodybuilders. With it you can get to 3-4% body fat, which is quite dangerous. If you answered no to any of those questions, then nutrition, more nutrition and more nutrition + water + exercise + rest will get you where you want.
So, how does carby cycling work? Carb cycling avoids the starvation response by reloading the carbohydrates every fourth day. This keeps the metabolism running, without the muscles burning. This is an advanced weight loss method which allows you to get that lower ab fat off and become truly ripped - without losing any muscle in the process.
Only the most extremely motivated people can do this - it is a very strict diet. You must weight, count and also tally every bit of food that passes into your mouth.
Carb cycling is a four day cycle of three days with low-carb meals and the fourth with high carbs. How long would you need to keep this up? I would say from two to eight weeks - until you reach your goal. If you go past 8 weeks, you are doing something wrong and should look into it further.
Remember, as I said, this is an advanced technique, not really needed for most people since they are not competing in competitions.
Do not forget to drink a lot of water, not underestimate sleeping properly, stop making common mistakes to become happier!
