Hey guys, I've read plenty of articles on carb cycling and I'm trying to figure out what will work best for my own body. I'm 5'9, 185 bodyfat somewhere along the lines of 12-14%. I'm attempting to lean out, while keeping most of my strength. Been doing 5/3/1, made great gains in the past couple months. I just want to slowly lose body fat, none of that drastic shit. I'm not dieting down for a competition or anything.
As of now, I've been doing 100g carbs (50g for breakfast via oats and a small helping of greek yogurt, and a banana post workout), 50g off days just in the morning via strawberries and greek yogurt. I was wondering if I should stick to this template or toss in a high carb day, which would be on my squat days and I was thinking a traditional cheat meal. Keeping the protein a constant 220-250g, and fats right around 50g (Almonds, and Olive oil). So, I would be doing the following carb intake: Mon-sun, low, moderate, low, moderate, HIGH, low, moderate. (I lift Sun, Tues, Thurs, Fri due to crazy school/work schedule).
If i did this once weekly cheat meal, do you think it would hinder fat loss too much? I haven't had a "cheat meal" in about 2 weeks, the fat seems to be coming off rather quickly, I'm just worried about losing mass too quickly.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
