The recent article on carb-cycling ( http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/researchapproved_carb_cycling ) outlines different approaches to cycling carbs, with different combo’s of low/medium/high days. What do you think is the best carb cycling method to cut some fat, but without losing much muscle from a drastic overall calorie drop?
Would having just medium carb/calorie days ( around 2300 cals/220 g carb) and a couple low carb/calorie days (~1700 cals/120 g carb periworkout) a week be sufficient to burn some fat, or is it necessary to have very low calorie/carb days mixed with very high days?
- If it helps, I’m 20 years old, 6’0 - 206 lbs, about 4 years of training exp. I’m looking to cut some fat slowly before summer time, obviously hoping to sustain as much muscle as possible.
Thanks for any input
