Hi there my name is Wispy and I just found this team.
I have been on low carb for the last three years. However I do intersperse it with several weeks of low cal in order to lose weight. I can maintain fine on the low carb as long as I stick to the 20gr max per day but to lose I have to go on to 1000 cals a day so eat a lot of veges and soups.
I would like to give this carb cycling a go as it seems more palatable to be getting fruit and more veges every fourth day. (I love both of them). I am diabetic and the low carb works very well for that and also several other health issues I have. I am disabled so cannot exercise.
I am good at managing what I eat as long as I leave the refined and processed stuff alone, so all I need really is the guidelines. Do I need to go lower than 20gr net carb on the low days to balance out the high days? And what is a reasonable amount of carbs for the high days? Also I cannot eat grains, sugar or potato, so is it OK to get my carbs on the high days from fruit, cheese, cream and other veges? I would so love to increase my veges every fourth day.
Last question :o) will this still work for me after being on basically low carb for so long?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
