Hi Athena... I have read the TNT Diet which is a carb cycling plan aimed at male body builders. Carb cycling is effective for active people that are serious about training and building muscle. Good luck.
The only real failure is quitting!

Hi, my name is Keely. I have been attempting to live a healthy lifestyle since the beginning of 2000. I do good for the most parts, but have had a few bouts of straying. I got serious with weight lifting and building muscle, and getting proper nutrition since early 2007. Mostly, I have followed a 20-40-40 nutrition plan of 20% fats, 40% carbs, and 40% protein, but my bf, who is a personal trainer, has started carb cycling and I have been reading more about it as well... So this past week, I have been giving it a whirl and have seen positive results so far.
I have a 9 year old daughter, and currently am running the Parents of Tweens Team, so if you have kids between the ages of 7-12, please check it out, you might find it useful.
I really look forward to the information and resources that I can get from this team. Plus, I cant wait to make some great friends!
Good Luck to everyone!
It's hard to beat a person who never gives up!
