What Is Carb Cycling?
Carb cycling is a method of dieting that involves planned increases and decreases in carbohydrate intake. It usually involves an increase and decrease in calories as well. Carb cycling is generally used to reduce body fat while maintaining lean muscle mass. There are many different ways to approach carb cycling. You can be less aggressive or more aggressive in your strategy depending on your goals. If you are looking to burn fat as fast as possible you will want to be more aggressive with your approach. This means that you will have more low carb days in a row than high carb days. The calculator below will help guide you in creating a strategy to start carb cycling. The calculator is also currently designed for people who are planning on using carb cycling to reduce body fat.
Carb Cycling Support Supplements
Glucose Disposal Agents
Glucose Disposal Agents (GDA) are supplements that help your body digest carbs and direct them towards muscle glycogen storage. They enhance the power of insulin by improving insulin sensitivity in muscle cells, ensuring the carbs you do eat go towards replenishing glycogen and supporting muscle growth rather than building up your fat stores. In a sense, GDAs enhance your body’s response to exercise, thereby supporting better performance, recovery, and body composition.
