Oh jeezus...I have been doing carb cycling and my low carb days are killing me as of lately soooo....I'm re introducing carbs need advice.I just hit 8% body fat from 11.is 1 to 2 g's per pound of body weight a good ratio for minimal fat gain?(info needed for when I say good bye to this cutt)Note:I prefer the grams per body weight instead of the % of calories or the "fist full of carbs"thing.The math works easier for my stupid head this way.
Edited for clarification

It's more important what kind of carb you eat. I do one day no carbs except veggies in three of my six meals, then only sixty % of body weight in three meals of six, and third day high carb w only requirement is I eat a piece of fruit prior to my main carbs four meals of six...repeat.
It's worked great for me.

Myfitnesspal app is good too. Check it out. Been using it for last couple days. It'll get you pretty close to where you want to be...everyone is different though. You'll get in the ballpark.

Also, I would gradually move up in my carbs--slowly increasing week by week.

Yeah. The body is very resilient--it'll do what it has to. The will is what fails us...Originally Posted by MuscleGauge1

You'd be surprised just how much fat you can loose with a high carb diet. For the most part it's just calories in v.s. calories out.
In your case your body fat is already REALLY low. It's a personal decision. If you want to get even MORE shredded you will have to continue to take out starchy carbs and replace them with green leafy vegetables. Having lower body fat then you have now is NOT sustainable. Even body builders don't look like that year round.
Best thing to focus on is to enjoy and maintain the body fat you have till now, then focus on going through some hell to look extra diced for certain occasions rather it be spring break, summer, or personal event.
