Carb Flux (alternating)

  1. Carb Flux (alternating)


    Has anyone ever tried Carb fluxing (alternating)?

    Example:
    Monday: no more than 50 grams of carbs
    Tuesday: 300 or more grams of carbs
    Wednesday: no more than 50 grams
    Thursday: 300 or more
    etc etc etc

    Just curious of results from doing this.


  2. Carb cycling* - yes. This is a very popular strategy for both cutting and lean bulking. I implement carb cycling year round, not as extreme as what you've written out, but I utilize higher, lower, and <50g days depending on my training schedule and goals. I have found it to be very effective for body composition, and it allows you to have some diversity in your diet.

    Works great, I run things similar to this when I am running more full body type EOD workout plans. Having the higher carb days on my workout days and the keto days on off days.

    It is called carb cycling. Many people do it, including myself, and it works quite well in my opinion. If the two articles below a read.
