I'm starting a cut now and I'm undecided whether or not I should cycle my carbohydrates or just stick with a clean 40/40/20 at 500 below maintenance. If I were to cycle my carbs, it would be like this:
Monday - high carb
Tuesday - no carb
Wednesday - low carb
Thursday - no carb
Friday - high carb
Saturday - low/high carb
Sunday - no carb
And the only carbs I'll be eating are brown rice, oats, yams, bran cereal, whole grain breads, and starchy vegetables.
The thing is, I train at a very high intensity. I'm getting back into a circuit training program called CrossFit (www.crossfit.com) that I've found to burn more calories than normal weight training or cardio. I'm afraid that doing this on no and low carb days (I really want to train 5-6x a week) will lead to overtraining, and possibly stall my cutting progress.
I also have to mention that I'll be using a heavy stack of supplements (alternating between albuterol, C2 + cAMP, Thyrogen-X, Cissus, Powerfull + Rebound Reloaded, and Sesamin) to help maintain muscle and speed up my metabolism. This has to be taken into consideration when planning out my diet.
Thank you for your input
