Carb cycling: What Is It?

Occasionally referred to as “carbs,” carbohydrates are currently a popular issue. They are now being linked by some dietary experts to issues including inflammation, diabetes, and obesity. Others, however, still steadfastly maintain that they should be consumed every day.

So, are all carbohydrates bad for you? And how much carbohydrate should you
eat every day? This is where carb- cycling can help.

Carbohydrates, along with fat and protein, make up the three macronutrients. When your
body digests carbohydrates, they’re broken down into glucose – your brain and body’s
preferred form of fuel. When glucose gets into the bloodstream, the pancreas is triggered
to produce a hormone called insulin. This transports glucose from the bloodstream into the cell.
Here, it is turned into energy, stored in the fat cells or stored as glycogen.

When you embark on a carb-cycling regime, you can reduce body fat while increasing muscle mass.
It’s an extremely rigorous diet so it should only be used in the short-term. However, it is useful
for breaking through weight-loss plateaus.

Carb cycling relies on increasing and decreasing carbohydrate intake on different days of
the week. There are high-carb days and low-carb days as well as days on which no carbs are eaten at
all. When you try carb cycling, you can eat carbohydrates if they’re from a clean source.
The cycling allows the body to use fat more effectively as a fuel instead of burning muscle tissue and carbs.
