When I carb cycle, my calories cycle too.

When you cycle carbs, do your calorie counts cycle too? Or do your calories stay the same? How does that work?

I try to cycle 3:3 with lower calories on lower carb days and just adding in more carbs on the high days. I don't do no carb either.

Hey Deb,

The amount of carbs depends on what method you are doing. There are quite a few of them. I always need some carbs and cannot do no carb days. On my low days I would have carbs (oatmeal) the 1st 2 meals of the day. The 2nd meal would be post workout. On high carb days I would have oatmeal, potatoes, brown rice, etc at each meal. Whole wheat breads and pasta would be a great choice for high days. I also would base my high and low carbs on my overall calories, 50% carbs for high and 30% for low. Like I said, I cannot do extremely low or no carb days, I could just not function.

Starting a 3:1 carb cycling plan today -- first time really paying attention to cycling my carbs but I know I have to break free from them!! emoticon
And lucky for me my high carb day turns out to be Christmas!
Question though - on your high carb days do you include whole wheat bread or pasta to up your carbs? Or what other things do you add in to up your carbs?
What are your carb levels for your low days & then your high day -- average? Just curious

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.
