What is carb-cycling?
Carb-cycling is a nutrition method that consists of alternating between high-carb and low-carb days, which helps keep the body's metabolism working optimally. Watch as celebrity fitness trainer Chris Powell explains carb-cycling and why it works.
To make it as fast and as easy and as effective as possible, it's really important to always keep the body guessing.
So carb cycling is the method-- I would say it's the nutrition method that I've used for years in all of my transformations.
And it consists of what we call high-carb and low-carb days. And it's this constant alternating between high- and low-carb days to keep the body's metabolism
guessing, to always kind of throw it off kilt to manipulate the body because that's really what nutrition and weight
loss is, is to make it as fast and as easy and as effective as possible.
It's really important to always keep the body guessing because the body adapts to everything that we do. So I use a method called carb cycling.
And it always keeps the metabolism of the body guessing as to what's going to happen next. So I'll actually use a series of what we call high-carb days, where you simply
eat a lot of carbohydrates in your meals. And then every once in a while, I'll throw in what we call a low-carb day, where we pull those carbs out.
We force the body to flip this what we call a fat-burning switch. So we force the body to burn a lot of fat on those days.
Then we flip it back over to these high-carb days. You know, the beauty of carb cycling is that by alternating between high- and low-carb days,
the high-carb days, it's really cool because we can actually we boost metabolic rate. We can build and develop muscle, which actually assists
with increasing the metabolism. And then on the low-carb days, we switch over into these really strong fat-burning mode,
where the body's breaking down. It's mobilizing and oxidizing fat as fast as possible. So it's just-- it's a really effective nutrition protocol
that we use that's incredibly powerful. [AUDIO LOGO]
