But it’s easy enough for any average Joe to follow a carb-cycling diet, which is perhaps why it’s gone mainstream. When you cycle your carb intake, you vary how many carbs you eat throughout the week, with some days being low-carb (2½ to 5 servings) and others high-carb (10 to 20 servings). The thinking is that your low-carb days put you in a fat-burning state and eating high-carb boosts your metabolism. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/carb_cycling_to_lose_weight#comments Diet Blog Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D.
