My advice for you just starting out w/ carb cycling is to KEEP IT SIMPLE! And the BFFM method does that for you. You are able to keep healthy carbs in the first 2-3 meals of the day and then you taper them off for meals 3-6. Every 4th day you have a high day and have healthy carbs at every meal. You keep your protein and fat the same just increase carbs on your 2 high days per week. For fat loss, make sure your low days are 20-30% calorie deficit and your high day at maintenance.
Remember to keep your carbs healthy ones like oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa, sweet potato, etc. If you want fruit, add it to the first couple meals of the day.
I'm in the same boat! I do not seem to be getting any closer to my goal the past two months and I've been sticking to my diet and exercise. I may not be eating enough. I've read about the carb cycling but it seems too complicated for me. I just eat low carb so don't have to worry about calories. Except that now that's not working. I'd also love to hear what y'all suggest.
I am almost to my goal and am having a hard time reaching it, regardless of what I do. Someone suggested Carb Cycling. It sounds like something that might help me achieve that. Any suggestions on where to begin?
