Started my prep on monday, thinking about trying carb cycling starting next week just to see how it goes so been trying to figure out a protocol for it so want to know what you guys are doing, was thinking the following
2 High days, 2 medium, 3 low per week, should see me still at a calories defiect based on my calculations
Fat-70-90g maybe lower
Last year was my first ever 'proper' cut, got pretty shredded, was cutting on 100g of carbs a day 80g fat and 250g protein with a refeed/disgusting cheat day once a week, but going to try something different this year as I don't think I can cut on such low carbs again especially now I'm much bigger then I was (probably about 10lbs more muscle)
oh and I'm currently 192lbs at approx 10%
also another question, how do you guys work out your cutting calories? I think I've been a bit low and my metabolism has slowed down so the carb cycling could give it the kick start it needs, current macro split is
however using the Katch-McArdle Formula and Harris-Benedict Formula it comes out that my baseline calories should be about 3300, so cutting on 2800?
