Carb cycling diet check-up

  1. Carb cycling diet check-up


    Age : 22
    Gender : Male
    Height : 5í8
    Weight : 71kg
    Bf% : 11-12%
    BMR (boditrax scan) : ~1850 kcal
    Maintenance (calculated with a formula) : 2212 kcal

    For the last four months Iíve been consuming 2512kcal (maintenance +300), consisting of P200 F88.7 C227.95 or
    P150 F88.7 C277.95 on workout days. Then 1712kcal (maintenance -500), consisting of P150 F57 C149.6 on rest days.
    I had been training four to six days a week.

    I would like to start cutting for summer now.

    The game plan is:
    - to train four days a week, continuing to carb-cycle.
    - three days a week Iíll eat at maintenance
    - one day a week Iíll eat at maintenance +300 kcal
    - three days a week Iíll eat at maintenance -500 kcal

    The weekly calorie total is [(maintenance x7) - 1200]

    So I have two questions

    - did anything come to mind as you read my game plan?
    - whilst carb cycling, on low carb days should you eat
    [maintenance -500] or [BMR -500]?
    - at 11-12% bodyfat should I make that [maintenance +300 day] a refeed day instead?
    - could you give any other advice?

    Well if you think logically your metabolism regardless if you're exercising or not, by adding 500 calories it'll be the exact same?

    One day you burn 1000 calories laying in bed, one day you burn 2000 exercising. You add 500 cals =1500 or 2500 =0.5kg average weight gain Right?

    300 would be a more easier way to start to see how your body deals with it. Now I'm extremely against macros, I think it's worth going low carb or low fat (one or the other) I also don't think over eating isn't good but counting calories a bit silly. I believe your body will tell you when you need food and it's good to have a base sure but if you're being hungry then add a little more to the meals.
