    Does Carb Cycling work?

    Well, I kind of want to do a recomposition diet. I'm about 143 pounds (ignore the stats, they are old) right now, and I need to get under 139 pounds for the weightlifting team... but I also really want to lose some fat, gain a little (or at least keep what I have) muscle, and get a six pack (something I've wanted forever.)

    I did some research on carb cycling, and it seems really interesting- eat higher carbs and above maintenance on heavy workout days, low carbs other days, and no carbs and low calories on off days....

    So theoretically, it would let you gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

    My question is: does it work? Has anyone here tried it and gotten good results with it?

    carb cycling worked for me really well...i lost a great amount of fat while i was on it..


    but the very fact that managing a carb cycling diet is a pain in the *** made me give up after a month....nevertheless i did notice good results during that one month...on the low carb days, u wil initially feel fatigued and de energised, but gradually u will get used to it....u need patience for it

    There is no need to try and make something simple difficult. Just focus on eating a healthy diet. Increasing carbs one day and decreasing them on another is not going to give any better results than just eating a normal nutritious diet.

    i have read a lot of your posts concerning nutrition and I respect your vast expanse of knowledge in this field...but trust me, while i was on carb cycling I lost a great deal of fat...my BF% dropped down from 15 to 11.3% ..of course it was accompanied by high intensity cardio and weightlifting...

    now i am taking a very healthy balanced nutritious diet , i dont cycle the carbs, but the net intake over the week (of carbs) is same as while I was on a carb cycle...i can feel a standstill, i mean no progress...i would revert to carb cycling if i feel the need to lose more fat or lose weight ....

    I admit I am a novice in this field but my experience so far has been quite good with carb cycling...

    this is the reason
    Along with a small calorie deficit

    Has little to do wtih carbs except that due to lower carbs you are taking in less calories
    If you were to cut out 2TBSP of PB (200cals) or 3/4c of pasta (200cals) you would see the same thing

    Carb cycling's awesome. Highly recommend it.

    I do my high days on and before my leg day (to build up some energy and not crash out half way through that workout), moderates on my chest day and back day and shoulder day, and low days on things like arm day and abs/calves/traps etc.

    I don't do no carb though. I would die lol I need a lil sumthin sumthin for my job anyway. I'm like brain dead on 0g carbs lol

    But yeah, i drop fat pretty good, and maintain/build muscle and maintain/increase strength in the gym. I stay within 9-9.5% b.f without even doin much cardio.

    On the lower carb days, i increase my protein to accommodate a bit.

    You're talking about a CKD. He's talking about a carb cycling diet where you eat usually 2 high carb days, 2-3 low carb days, and 2-3 no carb days. On the high carb days you eat higher calories, low at medium cals, no at low cals. Depending on your goals you can make it a surplus or a deficit. So far it's worked well for me, my quads are a lot more cut now compared to two or three weeks ago.

    This is a mistake, don't lower cals. Just change your macros.

    Carb cycling works as well as any other diet with the same avarage amount of carbs.
    And as well as any other diet with enough protein and calories adjusted to the same rate of weight change.

    I agree....do not lower the calories.. on days of low carbs, get your protein intake 'up' to compensate for the reduced calories...would help with muscle maintenance , if not muscle gain...

    but i sometimes used to lower my calories....gave me the feeling that my body wasnt getting used to the similiar intake daily....my goal was bf% reduction and fat loss so i had to avoid the plateau...i loved keeping my body in the guessing state...worked for me, maybe psychologically

    and i would recommend going for low carb days ( >=50 gms) in stead of zero or'no' carb days...

    i'm no expert on this area, but i think of particular importance (the main idea) is simply if you're training more on certain days, eat more, if you're training less on other days, eat less on those days. good luck and train hard.

    I'm going by Twin Peak's Carb Cycling diet (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/par30.htm)
    His point is that on no carb days if you're not lifting then you don't need as many calories, so you lower them. I'm not saying it's right, just giving information.

    His point is that on no carb days if you're not lifting then you don't need as many calories, so you lower them. I'm not saying it's right, just giving information.
    Yeah some people do that, it's alright.

    Gotta keep in mind though your energy for the next day's workout too though. A lot of people come off low/no carb days feeling flat during the next day's workout. If one keeps the calories the same, yet plays around with the macros (like say increases protein and fat to make up the lack of the carb calories), they often feel a lot better in the gym.

    Cos just because you aren't lifting that day, doesn't mean your body doesn't need those calories.
