IF/Carb Cycle Cut

  1. IF/Carb Cycle Cut

    Hey guys,

    I am going to start a new cutting cycle. Hopefully I will be lean enough and finally see some abs by the time July rolls around. I have been lifting consistently for 4 years. I have never gotten below an 11% bf, which made me really really frustrated. Now after one too many cheat meals, I am sitting at a roughly 16% bf. My plan is the following:

    Diet: Intermittent Fasting ( 16-18 hours )
    Calorie: 1600-1800
    Carb: Under 50g
    Protein: 1.5g x LMB
    Fat: whatever is left over after the carbs and the protein will be dietary fat.

    I will be fasting Monday thru Friday, on Saturdays and Sundays I will be eating normally. Wednesdays and Saturdays will be my refeed days, 200 grams of carbs on Wed and 300 grams of carbs on Saturday. If this gets to be too much, I will either cut back on the carb amount or cut out one of my refeed days.

    Training: (Upper/Lower Body Split)

    Monday: Lower body
    Tuesday: 20 minutes of HIIT plus Upper body
    Wednesday: Fasted steady state cardio (treadmill/swimming/elliptical)
    Thursday: Lower body
    Friday: 20 minutes of HIIT plus Upper body
    Saturday: Fasted steady state cardio (treadmill/swimming/elliptical)
    Sunday: Rest

    I will start up this tomorrow since it corresponds with my plan. I will keep a daily log just to keep myself motivated and you guys updated. Thanks for following and viewing.

  2. I've used IF for over a year now. Prefer it over every other style of eating. Good luck.
