I would appreciate any and all comments on the following "diet" plan.
I've been following the Anabolic Diet threads with great interest. Although I might decide to do the AD if I like the results of the 12 day transition period(i.e. if I can function normally eating under 30g CHO) then I may do it. However, right now I am planning on using a carb cycling diet. Here is my plan:
Progressively decrease CHO consumption each week until I hit the 12 day AD transition.
Do the 12 day transition period
Transition into a "carb cycling" diet, which will consist of no carb days, low carb days (under 100g), and high carb days (probably 4-500g).
I have a few questions.
Is this 12 day transitional period necessary? I feel I need to do this 12 day transition period to get my body to switch to fat burning (I've been on a relatively high CHO diet lately).
Will the body effectively stay in fat burning mode on a carb cycling diet? The bulk of my days would be low carb and no carb, with a high carb day once a week.
Thanks for your comments.
