Effective Carb Cycle Method

A lot of what I have read suggests something like a multi day cycle where you start with high carb intake and progressively drop then again increase carb intake. I'm assuming it's effective as people keep doing it, claiming it helps with limited fat gain or assisting fat loss. Could the same...
