Not sure what carb cycling is - but glad to have you here.

Hi and welcome!

Most of the folks here are permanently low carb (that's the "Living" part of the team name). As far as carb-cycling, I'm sure there are some people here who do, but generally they would be doing very high intensity physical training. It's not really well suited to anyone doing moderate to lower activity. Crossfit and carb cycling - yes. Yoga and carb cycling - probably no.

One really good resource comparing various low carb plans is at About.com:

/gettingstarted.htm


Laura Dolson has a lot of very good, easy to read information.

Also, I've heard lots of good things about Jonny Bowden's books in terms of comparing plans.

There is a book review thread here as well, if you're interested.

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

Hi everyone! I am thinking about starting low carb again. I have lost weight with it in the past. Is anyone doing carb cycleing? Not sure where to start this time. Looking for some badly needed inspiration. Thanks!
