3. Add a high-carb day
When you’re trying to shed weight, most people turn to low-carb diets. But a lot of guys often forget that carbs are your body’s preferred fuel method. That’s why it’s beneficial to add a “carb day” to reset your metabolism and get your engine revving again. A long-term, low-carb diet can result in adverse effects like lowering your leptin levels, which in turn slows down your metabolism at a faster rate.
To prevent this from happening, plan your high-carb days around your more intense workout sessions, such as leg day. Adding one to two high-carb days indicates that you’re carb cycling, which will help you avoid any plateaus that may be on the horizon.
