This is my second post in the What is FASTer Way to Fat Loss®? series. Last time I discussed online bootcamps. Today I want to talk about one of strategies we practice.
FASTer Way to Fat Loss® - Carb Cycling
Carb cycling is when we alter our carb intake to prevent stalls in fat loss and keep our metabolism revved up.
We alter our carb intake by cycling low carb days and regular carb days. Low carb days mean we restrict our carb intake. Regular carb days are the days we get the recommended 50% of our diet from carbs.
The cycle encourages the body to burn fat instead of sugar but prevents your energy levels from dropping. Natural fat burning can occur on low carb days because the body is forced to reach into fat stores for energy. When carbs are reintroduced, the body refuels and rebuilds its energy stores. The carbs are then used to promote the growth of lean fat burning muscles.
Carb cycling works for everyone, but especially women and men who have been eating clean, eating healthy, but have hit a plateau. Cycling carbs gives all the benefits of a low carb diet without risking burn out or malfunctioning of our thyroid.
Carb cycling is a cutting edge strategy used in the FASTer Way to Fat Loss® program. As a coach, I can teach you how to strategically pair your workouts to see the best results.

Coming up, I will discuss the elements of intermittent fasting and how it used in the FASTer Way to Fat Loss® program.
