I have just begun a carb cycling diet where i run 4 back to back low carb days (30-60g carbs) where i consume approx 1/2 my maintenance calories. This is followed by 3 carb days where I eat according to my maintenance calorie intake level.
I weigh 170 so I burn approx 2100 a day plus 400-600 from working out and cardio. On my low carb days I burn ~2750 and so I get all my calories from mostly protein and fats which totals 1300-1400 calories a day.
Basically this is a 4 low carb then 3 high carb day cycle.
Weekly I will run a deficit of 5000 calories.
My concern is..
Are the 4 low carb days going to throw into a steep catabolic state?
