Carb Cycling Diet Plan Rules Fit Healthy Edge Style

 Carb Cycling Diet Plan Rules- Fit Healthy Edge Style

 

Carb Cycling is really just a fancy way of saying that you are varying your intake of food.  Rather than eating a 30/30/40 division of your macronutrients every day, we are simply confusing the body by eating higher carbohydrates on some days and lower carbohydrates on other days. The human body gets used to patterns.  By changing up how we eat, we are eliminating our current food pattern and our body must respond rather than just do what it is used to doing.

Carb Cycling is an easy way to cut back on your calories without cutting out the nutrients you need to be healthy and without cutting out all of the food that provides the energy you need to exercise.

 Foods That Boost Your Metabolism

 

Daily

  • 5 servings of fruits and vegetables
  • Supplements: calcium with breakfast & bedtime, D & fish oil  with lunch, C & Q10 with Dinner, Fiber at least once during the day.
  • Be sure to eat low Carb after 3 PM every day.
  • Do not eat or drink anything with calories or artificial sweeteners.

Recommendations

  • Buy a high quality protein shake powder that you can use as a meal replacement when you are tight on time.  I love chocolate Shakeology.
  • Keep a high quality, balanced protein bar in your bag or desk for an emergency

P90X bars are delicious and filling and very well balanced.  I also love Power Crunch Bars.

  • Prep your food ahead of time.  You can plan and make meal kits for the entire week in a few hours if you plan well.
