Modified Carb Cycling (Awesome Strategy For Weight Loss & Muscle Gain)

November 4, 2019 11 By William Morgan


hey guys so today I want to talk about a
modified form of carb cycling right diet
and it’s something that I’ve kind of
come up with myself and I think that it
may be useful for those of you who are
wanting to put on a bit of muscle but
don’t want to gain too much weight all
those of you who are trying to lose a
little bit of weight keep muscle but
keep up your performance in the gym and
keep your energy but also get many of
the benefits of intamin fasting so this
is how it works first I want to explain
what conventional carb cycling is
conventional carb cycling basically
means that some days you cycle on Cubs
and some days you cycle off Cubs that
may mean that Monday for example you eat
a lot of carbohydrates not that much fat
medium protein the next day you might
have hardly any carbohydrates you up
your fat and you keep your protein
medium and you alternate from day to day
so there’s a hike up some days and
medium carbs some days I look up and the
reason people do this is for many
different reasons but mainly its its
push as a good way to lose fat
especially for those who are already
quite lean and need a sort of way to
allow themselves to eat less calories
but not feel like the starving so carb
cycling allows people to eat less
calories because on low-carb days it’s
much easier to eat less because if
you’re eating more protein for example
you’re gonna increase the hormone
peptide YY and that will reduce your
appetite and then other days you’re able
to indulge in carbohydrates and refill
those muscle glycogen stores keep your
performance up at the gym but at the
same time you’d be hitting relatively
low calories for the week because you’ve
had those low carb or days so that’s
basically the premise of it now I’m
calling this version of it daily carb
cycling and that’s because from day to
day the amount of carbs and the amount
of protein and the amount of fat you’re
having isn’t really gonna change but it
is gonna change throughout the day and
when you’re having it so I’m gonna give
you an example of a typical day of
myself when I’m doing this and you can
tweak this for yourself but you’ll begin
to understand what I mean when I explain
it for my own routine so I’ll wake up
right I don’t brush my teeth have a
coffee
whatever and now I’m fasting let’s say
it’s 8:00 a.m. I fast I fast I fast I
fast I fast I fast maybe at about 2:00
p.m. I’ll go and I’ll hit the gym right
I’ll go hit the gym and then at 3:00
p.m. let’s say I get back and I have my
first meal now here is where it gets
started so remember we’re doing intimate
fasting first and that’s quite important
so the first meal is going to be quite
low in carbohydrates it’s gonna be
medium to high in protein right medium
and protein not too high and relatively
high in fat so I’m gonna get in lots of
my good fats for the day I’m gonna get
in lots of saturated fat monounsaturated
fat maybe a bit of omega-3 and an
example meal of this is gonna be some
sauerkraut which is fermented cabbage
right and that’s very low in
carbohydrates it has some but because of
the amount of fiber it has it really
doesn’t count as having a full
carbohydrate-based meal it’s only a few
carbs right so I have that for my
probiotics then I’ll have maybe four
eggs and that has a lot of protein and
has some good fats and cholesterol in
there and then on the side I might have
a little bit of salmon right they get to
be some of my omega-3 my DHA EPA um and
some protein as well and then on the
side I might have an avocado or two for
those monounsaturated fats and that will
be an example of the first meal so why
am i eating this meal specifically well
I mean after a workout especially if
your fasted beforehand not so much if
you’re not faster perform but if your
fasted then it’s good to get in a little
bit of protein at some point after your
workout doesn’t have to be directly
after but at some point and the reason
why I’m keeping the carbs low is because
I’m fasted beforehand and by keeping
carbs very low and Morton kind of
following a ketogenic based sort of meal
medium and protein higher in fat and low
in carbs that allows me to mimic fasting
so I’m able to get in some calories
right but I’m able to technically extend
my fast to a certain extent and get some
of the benefits of fasting and extend
that throughout the day um but I get to
eat my meal a bit earlier and after my
workout when I’m really really hungry
and when my muscles are craving it so
then after that happens that’s my first
meal I’ll have a second meal and that
will be it for the day and my second
will again be media mission protein a
bit lower in fats and then slightly
higher in carbohydrates and that really
suits the end of the day not just before
you sleep but around seven o’clock or
something like that because those Cubs
really make you kind of lethargic you
get that Cobb coma and you really get
into that state where you’re feeling
relaxed and you kind of want to get
ready and relax and go to bed
but you also get your carbohydrates for
the day refueling your muscles for the
next day’s work out now of course this
isn’t gonna work for everybody this
daily carb cycling but I think it’s
really good for people who enjoy fasting
they enjoy things like one meal a day
for example but they just don’t want to
be fasting throughout the whole day for
multiple reasons maybe they find it
difficult to eat all that food in one
meal
maybe they struggle to get enough
micronutrients and in one meal at the
end of the day so separating this out
into two meals allows you to not overeat
during the day because you stay in a
slight state of nutritional ketosis
after you’re fast so your appetite is
down but at the same time you still get
the carbohydrates your body needs to
refuel your muscle glycogen and keep
your testosterone and adequate levels
because remember that fat and
carbohydrates are both quite important
for testosterone production so that’s
something I’ve been following lately and
I’m calling that the daily carb cycle
sort of diet and I found it to really
really work for me and just so you know
my goals right now just to add a bit of
muscle on um and keep my body fat
relatively the same so around
maintenance calories and just build a
little bit of muscle gradually and
that’s my goal at the moment so I think
this daily carb cycling will suit
anybody who’s trying to do the exact
same thing as me or lose a bit of fat
and keep all their muscle or gain a bit
of muscle and minimize the amount of fat
again and I think this can be a good
strategy for you to get in all the
calories all the macronutrients you need
and experience slight variation and your
meals and extend some of the benefits of
fasting without having to forego food
for the entire day so that’s it for this
video that’s modified daily carb cycling
whatever you want to call it and I hope
maybe you try this out let me know what
you think about it and whether you’ve
tried something similar
for I’ll see you guys in the next video
have a good day peace
