3. Lifting Weights & Interval Training
In its simplest form, Carb Cycling is switching between high-carb days and low-carb days. High-carb days keep the proverbial “oven” running at high temperatures, and low-carb days shred fat while the oven is still burning hot. The most common way to do this is to alternate days between high and low-carb. So Monday is a high-carb day, Tuesday is a low-carb day, etc. For your workouts, you want to lift weights and/or do high-intensity interval training (HIIT) on your high-carb days, and cardio and/or rest days on your low-carb days. As with intermittent fasting, schedule a cheat meal or two during the week so you aren’t depriving yourself of the things you love that might not love you back.
