Basically im about to start doing Scooby's carb cycling program. On his online macro calculator, it says that i am to carry out 4 low days followed by 1 high day.
On my low days the Macros are:
Protein - 280
Carbs - 192
Fats - 66.
i was just thinking, isnt 192g of carbs a little high to be considered low carb?

Carb cycling is a huge waste of time unless you are already very lean. I would just do a normal caloric deficit. And yes if you were going to waste your time carb cycling I would say 190 is way to high to be considered a low carb day.-Former 300lb club

Hit your protein and fat macro's, fill the rest with carbs, and lift weights. Stay in a deficit.
There you go, workout 101.
Screw all these other programs, and diets, and this and that... Your body is a very complex yet very simple machine. Losing weight is not hard."The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else's highlight reel."
