If you’re carb-cycling to lose fat or build muscle, the formula can be tricky. It’s definitely an effective method for both goals, but the amount of tracking and measuring carbs can get overwhelming, especially as a busy dad or business owner. You already got a ton of $hit to do, am I right? (Don’t worry, I’ve got you. Stay to the end.)
Two of the most popular methods of carb-cycling out there are:
- High, medium, and low days of carb consumption
- Staying low carb all week except for one high carb consumption day
The problem with these methods, however, is they mostly make you feel like $hit, especially on your workout days. On the high carb days, workouts are a breeze, but on the low carb workout days, your predominant refrain will be:
Why is this workout crushing my soul?
Carb-Cycling For Fat Loss: The Best Way
I don’t want that to be your reality, because if it is, you won’t be able to sustain it. That’s why on this week’s episode of the Million Dollar Body podcast, Kyle and I discuss the ins-and-outs of carb-cycling and how he got lean doing it, BUT also how it made his workouts super challenging (in a bad way). He’s totally changed up his carb-cycling strategy and now experiences crushing his workouts instead of soul-crushing workouts.
- The best carb-cycling technique that takes your energy levels, your time, and your workouts into consideration.
- How to create a carb-cycling plan that becomes automatic and fits into your busy lifestyle
- How to choose the path of least resistance when it comes to carbs and your workouts without being lazy
The prevailing message from diet culture is “do X to lose weight” but they never talk about the cost to your lifestyle or your energy. But, nothing in life is fun if you don’t have the energy to do it and nothing is sustainable if it doesn’t fit into your lifestyle. If you’re ready to learn the secret to carb-cycling that gets you lean, gives you energy, and fits into your busy schedule, this podcast is for you.
Also, if you want to know why Kyle calls himself “Juicy Cheeks” and bought two Pontiac Grand Prixes in a row (WHY?) and how I helped in the deforestation of a major rainforest in Panama, you should also tune in.
