    METABOLIC TRICKERY: HOW TO LOSE FAT
    METABOLIC TRICKERY: HOW TO LOSE FAT


    The trick to keep going down in body fat is all down to simple metabolic trickery.
    While at this point, the instinct of many athletes is to eliminate carbs from their training diet and go on a ketogenic diet (replacing carbs with fats), this may not necessarily be the best strategy.
    It may be a good idea eliminating carbs from your diet as it initially brings about some results in the way of less water retention and a sudden drop in weight, but when you cut carbs very low for long periods of time (without cycling), you eventually plateau in terms of how much body fat you can lose. Long term carb reduction eventually begins to reduce the number of calories your body burns each day. And this ultimately means that your metabolic rate will lower to the point where you're at maintenance, and you are unable to burn additional body fat.

    By including higher carb days 1 or 2 days a week helps kick up your metabolic rate overall so that you�ll continue to burn body fat. This occurs through a reduction of thyroid hormone production (which is the hormone responsible for keeping the metabolism high)
    So instead of just eliminating carbs from the diet, a better way to accomplish fat loss is through the use of an advanced technique called carbohydrate cycling.
    The premise behind carb cycling is that you deplete your carbohydrate stores, allowing your body to exhaust muscle glycogen and burn body fat. Carb cycling is a process used to help bodybuilders and athletes alike to drop body fat. If you consume more caloric energy than your body needs, the extra will be converted to stored glycogen and fat.
    There are various types of this diet, one version is where you have a High Carb, Low Carb and No Carb Days
    Generally, the three days are rotated, or cycled, equally but carbohydrate manipulation is the key here, By lowering and eliminating the carbohydrates for a few days the body is put into a fat burning state, by having a high carbohydrate day the helps prevent metabolic slowdown and also allows you the opportunity to have better energy levels throughout the fat loss process and this could even result in the gain of muscle tissue.
    If you cannot cope with not having any carbs at all then you can also carb cycle by having 3 low days followed by 1 high day, it is important to stress that the high day should be on a day when you a most likely to be exerting the most amount of energy, an example of this would be if you were training legs on this day, it is also important to eat carbs at the correct time of day as carbs are readily available for energy shortly after you consume them. The times of day when you need them most are when you first awake, and before and after your workouts

    Here is a list of the carbohydrates which you should be consuming:

    Sweet Potatoes/Yams
    Wholegrain rice
    Rolled Oatmeal
    100% Whole Wheat Bread (if you need bread this is the best choice. darker the better)
    Beans/Legumes
    Granny Smith Apples


    Here is a list of protein based foods products which you should be consuming:

    Tuna (drained well)
    Salmon
    Chicken (skinless)
    Turkey
    Lean Beef/Steak
    Whey
    Cottage Cheese
    Skim Milk
    Peanuts


    Here is a list of fats you should be consuming:

    Sesame Seeds/Sesame Seed Extract
    Flax Seeds and Flax Seed Oil
    Fish Oil
    Hempseed
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Natural Peanut Butter
    Walnuts
    Cashews
    Almonds
    Pecans



    Each time you go through a cycle of 3 days of low carbs followed by one day of high carbs you will be essentially re feeding your body thus helping to burn body fat and retaining, or even gaining, muscle.

    you seem to have a good understanding of the low carb. Do you see anything I'm missing with my plan:

    I started for two weeks less than 12 grams a day no cheats,

    week 3 less than less than 20 grams carbs with a healthy cheat meal on sat.,

    week 4 no carbs healthy cheat meal on sat.

    week 5 no carbs healthy cheat on sat.

    week 6 less than 20 grams carb per day cheat on sat

    I've leveled out on weight loss at 210lbs but not real worried because I'm gaining muscle pretty fast and still dropping body fat, my plan is to up the healthy cheat meals to one every three days as you talk about above for two weeks and then move to a clean 2000-2400 cal, 50/40/10 diet from there until my body fat drops enough to start cycle.

    I'm also going to start running n2guard and a few other supps next week, I am also eating every three hours like clockwork

    I'd like to see your 50/40/10 split changed to approximately 50/30/20.

    Good fats from almonds, coconut oil (the absolute best) and olive oil.

    thanks for the suggestion, I may lean that way because I slipped in my first mid week carb day yesterday and today my workout energy level was just way down, and had to force through it. I think maybe me and carbs just aint a good match. because when I first started on the low carb my energy was going up and workouts getting better. and after every carb day I seem to have to force it more so shifting 10 from the carb to good fat would probably serve me better.thanks again
