Happy to see more people joining in and posting their thoughts and ideas to this cause. The more the merrier. We're turning into quite the little support group for one another. Hopefully I'll get to where you're at in due time hall.......10% is where I'd ultimately like to be. Everyone keep on keeping on!!
    Sox, you are absolutley right. Some people are eating 1.5g-2.0g of carbs per lb/bodyweight on hi-carb days. I will be adding in one day at this level every other week on the day right before heavy squats. I am not prepared to add in this many carbs more than once every 2 weeks, but that is only personal preference. Sounds like it's working wonders for you though. Kepp up the great work! ;-)

    How's it look?
    Looks pretty good to me. Perhaps some more green veggis though.
    I try to keep my carb intake to derive completely from fiberous sources on a no-carb day, such as oats, beans, spinach etc. Keep us posted.

    I agree with the green veggies. Why oatmeal on a no carb day? A cup of oats has 25 grams of carbs, green beans has 11 grams and spinach has 7 grams.

    I am thinking about adding some no carb days into my diet. I understand no carb doesn't really mean none, but I don't understand the oatmeal in the above. That is a lot of carbs in one serving.

    So no-carb days is generally < 40-50g? Low-carbs is 1g/bodyweight and high carb day is 2g/bodyweight? Hmm.
    I've still got a lot to learn.

    hey freerad, I eat 1/2 cup of oats first thing in the AM on no-carb days. besides green veggies, the 1/2 cup of oats are the only carbs I eat the entire day. I eat my daily flaxseed on my morning oats.

    khyrz, on HI-CARB DAYS-you reset your metabolism, refill liver glycogen stores to prevent starvation mode from setting in, and refill muscle glycogen stores to provide adequate available energy to workout (lift) hard. on LOW-CARB DAYS-provide enough proteins to support muscle gains, and eat a low enough amount of carbs to support a fair level of enrgy in the gym while burning a small amount of fat throughout the day with a caloric deficit. eating enough proteins and just enough carbs also ensures minimal if any catabolism (muscle loss). on NO-CARB DAYS-eat enough proteins for the same reasons as on LOW CARB days, and eat so small an amount of carbs that your body truns to fat stores for energy. by implementing the principles of insulin sensitivity your body will not need as much insulin to effectively transport amino acids etc into the muscles. thus, while the pancreas is not making insulin, it will instead make glucagon. glucagon is used to mobilize fat cells for energy. add that plus the fact that you are not eating alot of carbs, this keeping blood glucose levels low, your body will turn to either muscle protein or fat. by eating sufficient proteins throughout the day combined with creating muscle hypertrophy in the gym, you will ensure little if any catabolism (muscle breakdown aka gluconeogensis).combine this with eating no carbs, your body will almost assudredly turn to fat. this is only a small amount of the info you will need to fully understand what I am attemmpting to say. though, it should be enough to get started. remember, I believe that insulin sensitivity is the first step in the process, once you have that down, you will lose anywhere from 5-10% BF. Once the scale stops lowering, you have plateaud. Next, by implementing the same exact principles used during learining insulin sensitivity, you tkae it a notch higher by carb cycling. this has been shown to reset metabolism and prevent it from slowing down if done effectively. this means continued fat loss. :->

    Kowboyz and dtrek,

    Thanks you for posting your meal plans on NO and LOW-CARB days respectively. This helps all of us get ideas on what foods to incoroporate.

    Thanx dtrek for the heads up on the spinach and cabbage. I've been looking for something other than meat,fish or cottage cheese to have on my low carb days. I had no idea that mixed nuts were so good for you. I've definitely added them to my daily intake list. I was also screwing up by eating pretty much the majority of my food for the day before going in to work my 12 hour shift. My trainer enlightened me that my body starts stealing protein from my muscles after about 3-4 hours so I've adjusted my mealtimes to where I'm eating 3x at work. I'm just doing my best to be like a sponge and absorb any kind of fresh outlook that might help the overall cause.

    do you guys count the carbs from veggies into your daily totals? its a no carb day and the only carbs i get are from veggies, and i ate like three cups


    on another note, i've been on this for my second week in a row and i am feeling GREAT...starting to see some good results i feel, my body feels very good and i'm not tiring out easily.

    TODAY WAS NO CARB DAY! yay :-/ however, for some reason i had a great shoulder workout...actually one of my best shoulder workouts that i've had in months

    anyone else do that? i psyched myself up so much because i knew it wa going to be a tough day, that i actually did really well and increased my weights/reps quite a bit.


    i am definately keeping up this diet!

Once the scale stops lowering, you have plateaud. Next, by implementing the same exact principles used during learining insulin sensitivity, you tkae it a notch higher by carb cycling. this has been shown to reset metabolism and prevent it from slowing down if done effectively. this means continued fat loss. :->
    Yeah I read about glucagon already. However, can you stimulate glucagon without no carb days? Like without carb cycling general? The website I read about glucagon said that with more insulin sensitivity you will create more glucagon.

    In acouple weeks I'm going to start doing Layne's diet approach, with 1 day of redeeds while gradually decreasing calories/carbs week by week. If that doesn't work I will be doing this diet style and will be seeking everyone's help here again, especially this thread. Thank you.
    I've still got a lot to learn.

    khyrz, you are absolutely right, insulin sensitivity is the KEY to glucagon production...while we're on the subject this article is a must read for all of us...

    WOW, serious dedication levels. A++ on the NO-CARB day. On the low carb day, may I suggest adding an additional .5 cup oats in the ealr AM? you will want at least 90-110g carbs on a low-carb day unless you are on a last minute cut for a trip to the bahamas, LOL! Terrific diet bro!

    haha you responded right before i edited my post.


    yeah definately good suggestion, i am still trying things out (thats what the milk was for). i am trying to base my carbs around two times
    1- right when i wake up
    2- right around my workout

    definately from now on i am going to put in .5 oat with raisins in it, that should do the trick

    it also annoying cause i've got 3 more pounds to go until i am at the weight that i've set a goal for so i'm all motivated and whatnot, haha

    manthe, I too eat an apple on NO-CARB days. Eating an apple will help keep liver glycogen stores from becoming too empty and sending your body into starvation mode. I try to eat the apple earlier in the day though.

    Nuts and PB are wonderful choices, especially on a NO-CARB day.

    Your no-carb diet looks good. Why three (3) no-carb day in your cycle?

    I feel alot better on no carb days. I think Im finding out real quick that Im possibly carb sensitive. Ive been carb cycling for three days and still feel pretty sick. Like possibly overeating. My first high carb day I ate around 280g of carbs and 2700cal. Low Carb day I ate around 130carb and 2200cal, and on my no carb day Im eating 1800cal around 50-60 carbs. Im still experimenting with my BMR. Im losing one pound a week eating at 1800 cal so I think its around the 2300-2400 area. Im really not effected by the no carb days at all. In fact I feel alot better on no carb days then on days when I eat carbs. Carb days I feel sluggish. I have no idea what this means lol, Im just going with it and trying to experiment. I dont want to give this up yet, but if I continue to feel sick and overstuffed, Ill most likely go back to cutting the way I was before. I eat clean all the typical foods, chicken, brown rice, oats, fruit, veggies, nuts, pb etc. Any advice? Think I should stick with it or let it go? Anything youd change? I feel like Ive gained like 5lbs ha. *I know that this is not likely, just the way I feel.*

    WED - NO carb day - cardio
    THU - HIGH - legs/ shoulders
    FRI - NO CARB - cardio

    Questions:

    2. on a NO carb day, allz i eat is CANNED TUNA, CHICKEN BREAST and veggies... lettuce, corn, peas, beans and carrots. Some stay away from carrots and peas, im just reassuring, its safe to eat veggies on NO carb days correct?

    3.With the above workout scheme I have carb cycling, has anyone had any luck with LIPO6?

    4. I usually do 3 sets per exercise with a range of 8-10 reps, question;
    what luck did MOST of you have here here? High reps?more sets?High weight?


    thanks !
    It's not what you do for 30-60 minutes per day that makes the difference.

    It's what you do the other 23-23.5 hours of the day that counts

    manthe, stick with it. watch the scale and how how tight your pants are from day to day, LOL! Seriously, carb cycling should work for you, and perhaps you are carb sensitive or may insulin resistant. Insulin Resistance means your body needs to produce high levels of insulin in response to heightened blood glucose levels (which are heightened when carb are eaten). Here's a quote from another site; "Insulin resistance occurs when the normal amount of insulin secreted by the pancreas is not able to unlock the door to cells. To maintain a normal blood glucose, the pancreas secretes additional insulin. In some cases (about 1/3 of the people with insulin resistance), when the body cells resist or do not respond to even high levels of insulin, glucose builds up in the blood resulting in high blood glucose..."

    I am NOT saying you are insulin sensitive, although I am suggesting you try implementing the principles of INSULIN SENSITIVITY to a strict degree. This is KEY to fat loss anyways. First and foremost read this link...

    1. Try breaking your daily allotment into three doses throughout the day. (Ex. if yuo are taking 20g/day [5g per pill], take 2 gels in the AM, 1 in the afternoon and 1 at night)

    2.Veggis are a must, especially on ono carb day. I do not eat carrots an peas on no-carb day becuase of the high GI (glycemic index) score, and the sugars. I stick with fibrous green veggies; spinach, brocolli etc. They provide high satiety and fiber supports insulin sensitivity.

    3.Never tried LIPO6 personally. Anyone else?

    4.If your main goal is to add lean mass :-), then you have to mix it up. prevent yourself from doing the same exercises/sets/reps for more then say 2 weeks in a row. experiement new training to keep the muscle in a state of hypertrophy.

    today is high carb day, and i love it more than life itself...lol

    1- one scoop protein
    (35mins cardio to help fight the bloat, lol)
    2- two egg white omelettes, .75cup oatmeal, two low fat blueberry muffins
    half a grapefruit, some raisins
    3- 4oz talapia filet, kidney beans, three hardboiled egg whites
    .25 cup oats, one LF blueberry muffin
    4- 4oz talapia filet, beans, one hardboiled egg white
    5- preworkout - 1 cup oats, green apple, 1 scoop protein
    6- postworkout - .5 cup oats, 1 scoop gatorade, 1.5 scoop protein
    7- grilled chicken over veggies

    although i love oats and all, i cant stomache anymore than i have down....so the next best thing i could find on in a college campus cafateria were these low fat blueberry muffins, because even the whole wheat bread is incredibly fake and crappy.

    whaddya think?

    hey sharabi your plan looks real good to me,i personally have never tried lipo6 but if you have been having success with it keep using it. as far as weight training goes i always keep the weight high at lower reps 6 to 10.4 sets.
