But it’s easy enough for any average Joe, 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.
