I'm starting to loose faith in CKD, i find it very hard to stick to low carbs for 6 days at a time.

However i've discovered Carb Cycling, i'm interested in this concept and would like anyone who has used this, to share their experiences.

Below is a link with the information

It far beats keto and there are many variations of it. It does work and work well.

CKD and twin peak's both cycle carbohydrate intake. So does ud2.0. Natural hormonal enhancement does this as well.

Waiting 5 days for a carb load is one of my major issues with using a ckd long term. Fundamentally my problem is that all that dietary fat does little to bring me satiety as it does for many folks. I also have a tough time maintaining energy levels on ckd due to lowered glycogen toward the end of the week.

Whether cycling carbs over such a short timeframe (say 3 days) makes a tremendous physiological difference over a standard moderate carb cutting approach, I can't honestly say. But it is psychologically much easier for me to stick to and far more enjoyable in general. I can regulate calories easier as well.

My sense of self-regulation suchs though. Like many others I would have to watch caloric intake on Twin Peak's plan lest I find myself bulking. From all I hear, TP's plan is incredibly enjoyable to be on and rather stress free which is huge imo.

In general I think it is a solid alternative for those that don't fair so well on ckd, skd, tkd etc type diets.

I certainly can't say it beats ckd hands down, as it can certainly be argued that it is a matter of personal preference. I personally prefer my own version of cho cycling.

Awesome, TP looks like it will be easier for me to stick to, as i know a highcarb day is only at max 2 days away... instead of 5.

Anyone else have any comments or suggestions?
