Slow steady weight loss is the only way to set yourself up for a lifetime of proper health. Gimmicks don't work longterm in general. Keto didn't last for you, carb cycling won't last, you need something that requires no thought and is natural... (more)

This fact is often overlooked in programs. Yes your performance will suffer, even if you are not doing gylcoptic work, having fullish stores will still probably be beneficial. The type of training you are doing will certainly suffer. this is a... (more)

Hey, so I have a quick question, how should one carb cycle while trying to lean out, and how does post-workout nutrition play into this? I do HIIT cardio(usually plyometrics) 1-2 times a week, and do very high volume body weight/lifting workouts... (more)

carb restriction relies heavily on intervals between exercise. If you are doing heavy work every day, your body will likely not be able to convert to glucose fast enough to keep up. Personally, 3 days a week, with rest or light work in between... (more)

I think it's great! Both for plateaus and for those looking to cut BF to single digits. Cycling carbs also helps maintain thyroid function. [When not pregnant] I like to do two days VLC, one day moderate carb and then three days VLC, and one day... (more)

I think there might be a question on this issue, or at least it has been discussed in some other questions. I'm currently doing leangains-style approach with IF, and have a pretty decent "swing" in my carb intake: Rest days 100-120 grams, workout... (more)

The first meal is definitely not an issue. As far as the last meal I would try it out and see how it makes you feel, look for signs of indigestion and test your postprandial glucose if possible(2 and 4 hours after). The issue I see is that you... (more)

All this recent hub-bub about low fat raw vegan and fruitarinism got me thinking ... what if you mashed paleo together with fruitarianism? What I mean is can you cycle the two ways of eating for max benefit? For example. meat day, fruit day, meat... (more)

Hey there everyone- I'm wondering about this- will eating the vast majority of one's carbs all at once lead to gaining fat? I am trying to carb cycle currently, and have been doing 2-3 days low carb (under 80g) and then I have a high carb day... (more)
